A friend brought over his computer today because the keyboard and mouse quit. It's a HP Pavillion a1000n. He had been gone a few days and when he came back and turned it on that is what happened. He had tried a cordless mouse and thought it was going to work and then it quit too.
My experience is I tried using a PS/2 mouse with no luck, so then tried a USB mouse in all slots with no luck. I have a cordless mouse and keyboard that I also tried. The last port I tried it in it downloaded driver and worked. Then I tried plugging his into that port and nothing. When I plugged mine back in that was working, couldn't ever get it to work again.
Any suggestions other than buy a new computer??
