Ok, so, for some random reason, about 2 or 3 months ago, my precious, old fashioned keyboard stopped working :-/ . I changed it for a USB one and that solved the trick.
Now, i'm trying to reinstall windows due to all the crap that's on my pc, i have XP pro and now XP Black. With XP Pro, i can't just install it because of all the online upgrades, the CD version is now older than what i have on my PC so i'd have to reformat the drive. XP Black is an upgrade so i can put it on, but i want to make sure that i get rid of all the crap that's already on my C drive before i put some more onto it.
In any case, to the question i REALLY wanted to ask... when i try to boot from CD, or try pressing any button on my keyboard while windows is loading (so the moment any post appears on the screen) there is no reaction, i get nothing:S . I can't even make it boot from drive. Even when it gives me the option to start in safe mode or normal, i can't go up or down to select. Is there any advice anyone can give me? Am i doing something wrong? What could it be? :'(
I've tried several of the 'old style' keyboards on it, none will work, so i'm stuck with the USB one, but if it works once Windows has loaded, why won't it work for me to boot from cd? I'm confuded.... and not to mention frustrated:angry: ! PLEASE HELP?! PLEEEAAASSSEEE?!
(and sorry about the essay, once i get going i just can't stop myself!):)
