When i start my computer, the keyboard and mouse dont work when the computer gets to the xp logon, or lunix bootloader. it'll work in the bios and startup options of xp (F8 ones). It also works fine IN linux or windows 98. If i unplug the keyboard and mouse (and usb modem) until it reaches logon, it will work, but this is obviously annoying, and a hassle.
The matter is further complicated by the fact that i fixed it buy enabling "plug and play OS" in bios. However, that was while running a borrowed copy of xp pro, not my cdr one of xp pro corporate. with the current one, it makes no difference.
anyone had this problem before, or have a suggestion. XP troubleshooters are shit, and no help at all.
