Hi! i started up my computer but the mouse is frozen in the center at the welcome screen so cant enter my desktop.
so i pressed reset and then Del to enter BIOS.It goes into BIOS but the keyboard is frozen so I cant enter the options there.
Can anyone please tell me what could be the problem and its solution?
My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-945GM-S2 and its two years old. Operating system is Win XP Pro.
Thanks !

Check the connections for mouse and keyboard...does the keyboard work normally in the BIOS?

hi! Hamluis
the connections for the mouse and keyboard are OK. they are both PS/2.
the keyboard just refuses to work in BIOS.
I used the mouse and keyboard on my friends computer and they work OK.

regards.
Ricky

Hmmm...if the keyboard/mouse themselves are good, it points to a driver problem, IMO.

Since those load with XP...and you cannot get into Device Manager to remove them...I would have to suggest a repair install of XP. Seems like overkill just to get new drivers, but it's all I can think of.

Let's see if someone else has a better idea :thumbsup:.
