|Hi Everybody. |
Now for part 2 of the story.
I fitted a usb PCI adapter but it was not recognised although my wireless mouse/keyboard transmitter lit up and flashed as I would expect when moving the mouse or using the keyboard. However the cursor did not move and using the keyboard had no effect.
I then moved the adapter to another PCI slot and voila it was recognised as new hardware. But as soon as the balloon appeared telling me new hardware was found the PC "hung" and nothing worked. I rebooted and the PS2 mouse I was using worked ok until the new hardware balloon appeared and then it hung once more. With the machine in this state I plugged in the wireless transmitter out of curiosity and it behaved normally except that neither mouse nor keyboard movements were being conveyed to the screen.
Any assistance would be gratefully received.
