What was I saying last night? Something like "Whenever I get my system exactly the way I want it, I always have to break something" Today I broke something. I decided it would be cool to change the standard mouse and keyboard drivers into the respective names, ie wireless multimedia keyboard, wireless optical mouse. It asked me to reboot so I did. The mouse didn't work, arg better revert it, ARG keyboard doesn't work. Safe mode won't let me move em either. feck. After playing with the various options F8 allowed me to and got nowhere! Fortunatly I had an old 15 gig HDD lying around from a mate, so have been deleteing the porn and spyware off it (this guy was an old man and asian porn and frankly its all a bit much) - got a nice activated copy of MS WindowsXP Home - with a working keyboard and mouse What can I do? I could set my HDD up as a slave but where would I wipe or access what needs to be changed, I really don't wanna reformat as like I Said I have this exactly the way I want it. boo hoo.
