I have purchased a new motherboard and processor and have fitted it in my PC. However, when I turn on the PC the mouse becomes unresponsive as does the keyboard. I have entered the BIOS setup and looked around for a solution but can find no answer to my problem please help!!!
Both the Mouse and Keyboard are PS2 types. My OS is Win XP SP2. My motherboard is an ASRock 775VM800. Both keyboard and mouse are working fine with my previous old motherboard. What do you think the problem is??
When you say new motherboard and processor I presume you have reformatted the old hard drive and installed XP on it? If you haven't done this then this may be the problem. Could you explain what you have done. What I would have done is boot from the Windows CD, formatted the hard drive, reinstalled Windows and once that was done installed the motherboard drivers. Was this what you did?
There are many things here that are inexplicable but Bread Dead may have it. Assuming you have assembled the components correctly did you fit CPU to MoBo or was it preassembled? The a New Mobo/CPU always means format your drive and re install the O/S - always - The mobo will haver different CMOS /Driver set to previous and trying to use Old O?S will cause all sorts of probes Always New MoBo/CPU = New set up - format and reinstall.
