I ran a program, and for no reason whatsoever other than curiosity, I tried to change it's process' priority up to Above Normal then to High. Everything was still OK. The program ran faster and all that. I set it up one more to Realtime.
Now my I/O won't respond. I-ain't-got-nothin'. Not even the power button :)

So I pull the plug and everything is back to normal.

So, is there a way to set things back to normal or have my peripherals respond without pulling the plug?

Thanks. :)

Not even the power button, eh? :) Yow. I doubt it. If there's a rocker switch on the back of the PSU, you should be able to cut power from the source... I would try powering it up from there again. See if you get anything, and if you don't try to boot to Safe Mode and use System Restore (If you can.)

Nice Avi, btw :)

Nice Avi, btw :)

Thanks.

I'm actually asking if there's a way to have my mouse move or my keyboard work while the program is running at Realtime priority. I can easily pull the power and just power on again to go back to normal.

Yeah...It's not really important anyway. Just something I do for the sake of trying to break my computer. :)
