I am running Windows XP Home SP2 with Norton, Adaware, and Spybot on a Dell Dimension 4100. I found this cord in my room that seemed like a usb to usb cord. I have a usb flash drive that I use frequently so I used that cord as an easier way to plug in my usb flash drive. I've since unplugged it, but since then every time I hit a button on my keyboard, both the mouse and the keyboard freeze up. In the device manager, it gave me "this device cannot start Code 10". After doing some digging up (I hit the resources tab), I figured out what the problem was. The mouse is conflicting with the keyboard.
I fixed the problem with the mouse freezing up by switching to a usb mouse, but the keyboard still doesn't work at all. It still says "this device cannot start" and the lights on the keyboard won't even turn on.
I even tried using a ps/2 to usb adapter to no prevail. I know it is not the keyboards because when they are plugged into other computers they work fine. Right now it just seems like my computer is rejecting any keyboard I put in there
