I am currently visiting my parents and brought my computer along with me. I just plugged it in and my computer will not recognize my mouse or keyboard. I don't know how to fix this problem. So I unhook mine and plug my moms back in and her computer does the same thing, but her computer was working when I unplugged it. So now I am on a neighbors computer trying to fix it. I can't leave my mom without a computer.

are the keyboard and mouse connectors ps2 type(round)? if so, they may be swapped.

warning: do not hot swap ps2 devices. make sure the power is off when installing or disconnecting ps2 devices.

don't feel bad - there's a good reason someone would know about this, they've done it too. I'm sure there are many experts out there who have swapped the connections.
