I was then to reboot. I did. The system came back on, but the mouse no longer responds. I am using an optical mouse, and there is no power to it now (red light is not on). I tried 3 different optical mice, no response. I installed a usb digital mouse, there is power to it (red light is on) but still no response. Just a white arrow cursor frozen in the center of the page, no response.
How in the world do you do ANYTHING on a computer if you can't use the mouse?? All I can do is manually turn it off and reboot. I can get into bios using the F2 key, but all I can find there shows the mouse is ON.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am using my backup computer to send this, my main computer is a big paperweight at this point.
