Hi,

I think this might be a common problem so sorry if I am repeating the question.

Just started up my Vista computer after updating my computer before I turned off yesterday and I can't use the key board or mouse!

So I cant go back to the settings before the update or nothing.

Help please! Where do i start without use of either?

Thanks,

Bryce

Hi Wolfeymole,

Well, I held down F8 during startup and told it to boot with the Harddrive. Still loads up as normal. I was expecting a basic setup, but all drivers loaded as usual. Weird!

Regards,

Bryce

Hi,

Restore did the trick thanks! For anybody with the same problem, restore right back to the very first of three update restore points.

Also, lost mouse on restart, but another restart fixed that.
For restore help go here...

Windows Vista Ultimate - System Restore from CD or DVD

Thanks for your help!
