After having my machine crash for unknown reason I have now performed a Fdisk, formatted (AGAIN as I speak) and want to instal WinME fresh.
Problem is, when I start to type in the Product ID Key from my geniune Retail WinME CD the Mouse freezes. I can navigate with the TAB key but don't want to procedd with the installation untill the Mouse is functioning.
So I ask what can check to cure this problem please. I have replaced the mouse and thats working fine (Ps/2 MS Intellimouse)
I did upgrade the memory 2 years ago and have 2x 256MB PC2100 DDR (Total 512MB)
Also added a CD Wtr about 2 years ago, the machine is a AMD Athlon 1.4GHZ, Asus A7V266-E
I am going out now but will be back latter today to try and continue to sort it out sao any ideas even if someone see other suggestions I am willing to try anything
If you're on broadband, and/or have access to a PC with a CD writer, download a Linux LiveCD and see if things lock up/fail to work.
