Hey Beepsters. I seem to be dropping in a lot...just not my month with computers I guess. My problem is with my Windows XP Media center edition. It is 2 gig ram with a 200 gig H/D. The other day I turned it on, and by the time it reached the choose selection screen which it always goes to first ( Start Windows XP media edition, enter recovery console..) I realized I didn't plug in my wireless keyboard and mouse usb. I plugged it in and waited for it to accept the usb so I could make my selection. (Start windows xp media) Waited a few minutes and still nothing. So, Being impatient, I did a "hard shut down." I plugged in my servicing key board and mouse and re-started. Now it will not get past the HP boot screen. I have no keyboard function or mouse function. Just stuck on the HP screen. Any Ideas? Tried with different keyboards and mouse combinations. I don't see the hard drive light blinking at all. This computer has never given me a problem before and is one of my favorites. I am leaning towards a ram problem but I am not sure. Any help would be appreciated.
Funny thing about "The Blues", You can listen to them when your Happy, Sad, Angry, or just plain Blah. It's a non discriminating mood music.
HP Pavilion a1600n Windows XP media edition 2 gigs ram 1TB with external hard drive. Or depends on which computer I plug in that day....
