I have a friend's desktop here, HP Pavilion a1600n with ASUS mobo, A8M2N-LA and NVIDIA chipset.
Computer is running XP Media edition all up todate. Running Microsoft Essentials and Malwarebytes.
When I got the PC it would start but mouse and keyboard would not work. After a few reboots it started and I got all windows and virus/malware updates. Ran virus scan , nothing... Ran Malwarebytes scan and it found 10 infected items and removed them. Shortly after this it stopped working properly again. Mouse and Keyboard won't work.
I have tried ps/2 mouse and keyboard with sporadic success
I have removed the 2 512mb memory sticks and replaced with a different single 512mb known to work
I have installed a different HD and loaded XP on it and it does the same thing
I replaced the mobo battery
I even followed along with another similar post in here and downloaded XPUD_0.9.2.iso and burned to cd along with the other programs to USB thumb drive.
After several tries I got the computer to boot to disc and ran XPUD but when I opened the file folder my USB drive was not listed in there.
This seems to be the biggest thing with this computer... no USB access along with the sporadic mouse and K-board. I'm beginning to think Motherboard problems.
