I have a dual boot system right now. When I boot up with ME there's no problem with the keyboard. But when I boot up with XP, I cannot get either of my keyboards to work on it. They don't type anything at all.
The mouse works perfectly, unlike some other complaints I read.
I read a few threads where updates were suspected for the problem. Just after I installed XP, it performed an automatic update. Usually I like to see what's being downloaded, but this time, it started downloading and installing stuff without giving me the option of seeing it first. Neither could I pause or stop the downloads.
Is there a way that I can find out if the updates caused this problem? Can those updates be removed? I have no Restore point for backup as it happened on the first bootup of XP.
I am about to try reformatting and re-installing XP on that drive.
