I installed Vista on Tuesday on this computer, AMD 64 3200+ 1GB ram ext., and so far it seems to be working good, finally got Norton's to reintall (pain in the butt) but for some reason when I reboot the computer my keyboard doesn't work (until I turn off the computer and reboot it back on) also for some reason my: ctrl alt delete function doesn't work anymore, any suggestions? can this just be the bug's in the software since it's still new?

It's doubtful that it's the Vista doing this (although it's possible).

What kind of install did you do? An Upgrade or a Clean install?

What make and model system do you have? Do you have a USB or a PS2 keyboard? Did you reinstall updated drivers that are Vista compatible? Is your BIOS set correctly to recognize the keyboard?

I suspect that the Vista drivers are a bit "immature" and don't provide all the functionality of the drivers that the manufacturer's will provide.

Have you downloaded the Vista drivers for your keyboard and mouse? I'd suppose that, for proper functioning, you'll have to download the Vista versions of the IntelliPoint and IntelliType software.

Have you tried to delete/uninstall the devices through Device Manager and then reboot to let Vista reinstall them? If you're still having problems after that, then I'd suspect that your keyboard is defective.

Here's a link to the MS Hardware site that describes the support for Vista: http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/windowsvista/support.mspx
