  • XP pro Logon: Mouse and Keyboard freeze up.

    XP pro Logon: Mouse and Log On Keyboard freeze up.

    Mouse cursor moves OK until the first keystroke in Log On Password box. Both keyboard and mouse freeze up.

    No joy in Safe Mode and no error messages.

    Until recently I was able to load without a password but now there is the User-name of the previous owner.

    I did get to A:\ Dos prompt but could not change drive to D:\ or C:\. Please advise.

    I have loaded 5 out of 6 XP Startup floppies. #6 has error message 'Unmountable_boot_volume.

    I do have an original Windows XP pro disk but it was not bought with this computer.

    I have changed the BIOS settings to force a boot from this CD but it only results in the same problem.

    Your help will be much appreciated.

    What sort of mouse are you using? USB, PS/2 or Serial?
    Have you tried changing to a different mouse?
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.

      Thanks,

      Mouse is good quality PS/2 Logitech Trackman Marble. It works well on all other computers but I will try and load the Logitech software.

      Can anybody help me change drive at the A:\ dos prompt. I have gone back to my old and limited Dos commands experience but so far have only got DATE, TIME and DIR to work for me.

        A: and press ENTER

        Get a cheap USB mouse so you can logon and install the software for the Logitech. It is also possible your PS/2 port is faulty.
