Hi to all,
I followed a suggeston on www.thewhppingpost.com to switch from ACPI to Standard PC mode as a measure to increase audio performance of my computer (XP home). After I did the switch (System, HArdware, Computer, righ click on ACPI, update drivers), and rebooted, my mouse and keyboard do not function (mouse and keyboard - both USB). Tried to restart, use another mouse/keyboard - doesn't help. Would anyone give a hint on nowto get mouse and keyboard connected abck again. GReatly appreciate your support!!

what.....? tried to find the post to see if that even makes sense---no reason it should that I can think of.

As for your situation, got a PS2 mouse and keyboard?

Here's what you likely did when you did that--you now have a ton of different devices competing for a limited number of PC resources (irq, memory address)...Windows XP does a good job of sharing these resources, but you told your computer you would handle it...and didn't.

If a ps2 mouse and keyboard are not possible, you might have some luck by removing non-essential devices.....scanners, printers, gamestuff, and add-ons, put the mouse and keyboard on separate usb ports, remove the soundcard any other cards except for videocard.
