Yesterday, while browsing the internet like I normally do any other day, My mouse and keyboard stopped functioning. The light underneath the mouse shut off and the lights on my keyboard also shut off. I tried I restarting by holding the power button on the tower to see if they would start functioning again.
Normally, during boot up, the light underneath the mouse turns on and the lights on the keyboard flash. They don't do that anymore, and I can't use the keyboard or mouse at all, so I can't login or check the device manager or BIOS, etc.
I'm using an hp pavilion 734n and running on Windows XP Home Edition. They're both connected to the proper ports, and I've never unplugged them while the computer was running. I haven't tried using a different keyboard or mouse, but I will when I have access to another keyboard or mouse. Bleh.
Any replies regarding this problem would be appreciated.
