following a previous problem (in another thread, I reinstalled winxp pro in this order, winxp he, winxp pro upgrade, SP2.
xp he installed o.k(after reformatting the c drive), xp pro upgrade installed o.k., after installing SP2, the PC starts up but the mouse is frozen, I have a wireless mouse, have tried a usb mouse but no change.
I have tried to uninstall SP2 via the keyboard, but with no luckd, nothing happens when I go to control panel, add/remove progs and get to the win xp sp2 file.
The reason that I installed SP2 after xp pro upgrade was because I read this on this forum some time ago.
I regularly get stuck wireless mouse,I can resurrect by taking out batts completely, replace and reset, or change for new batts, I use rechargeable batts cos mouse seems to be hungry, will die if voltage drops a small amount, don't forget rechargeables are only 1.2v versus 1.5v for disposables.
