So I did a test on my PC, a mouse test, I think I pressed F9 or maybe F12. Anyways, I did the mouse test and the mouse worked just fine. When I go to the actual log in screen, the mouse does not work! How can I fix this problem? Since the mouse doesn't work, I can't log in to do anything. Any help or advice would be much appreciated! This is on a desktop windows XP.
are you saying the keyboard is not reacting either?
are all the USB settings enabled in the BIOS?
I guess the keyboard is not reacting either. It does when I first start the computer, I can go into safe mode and I can test the mouse and everything works fine there, EXCEPT when I go to log in, even in safe mode, the mouse will not work. The keyboard lights up when it's at the log in screen. As far as the last question goes, I am not sure. How do I check that?
