HELP, Please! :) I moved my desktop to a new apartment and tried to restart the other day. Goes through the motions normally, then get a white screen with "!" and "Active Desktop Recovery".

Have had the tower for 1 year (bought on ebay), so I am clear this may be the end. What is so weird is the no keyboard nor mouse thing. I have restarted with several different mice and keyboards. Still nothing. So there I hang.

Can anyone tell me what to do? I have no recovery disc (DUMMY ME !!!) and several pictures on the hard-drive not yet backed up which are priceless. Can someone help me?

do this by unplugging computer from the outlet....

before you plug mouse and keyboard in computer
blow on the ends....its worth a try
