:) The other day while trying to burn a cd i noticed that neither one of my disc drives were being recognized in the device manager. so i used microsofts trouble shoot and followed exactly what they told me to do, which was go into the registry editor and delete the upper and lower filters for those drives. then it told me to reboot my computer. when it launched back into windows my mouse and key board were non responsive. and it cant be a usb problem because my keyboard is not usb. what could cause this?? and is there a solution other than reformatting?? :tazz: thanks in advance to anyone who knows whats going on....

thos keys would have nothing to do with the mouse or keyboard,,,,is your keyboard responsive before getting into windows? IE--can you get into BIOS by tapping f1, f2 or DEL?

Can you load into safe mode, by tapping the f8 key while memory is counting up?

given that, my guess is a corrupted registry

Here is a MS b article detailing how to address it--in your case, you ought to only need to replace the system hive and perhaps the default hive

you can download a recovery console on CD and burn it to a CD to do this procedure

Yea, I have sorta the same problem as you. Cant click once in
safe mode =(

When you put it in the computer, the CD, youll get a black screen
that says if you want to boot from cd, just press any key and itll
boot.

You need to go into your BIOS and change the boot order so it boots off the cd first before the hard drive.
