hi huys, i have dSL on a usb stick which used to boot and work perfect on an old core2 duo base pc.

Since building new PC using an i7 i can boot to the welcome screen etc, but my keyboard and mouse stop working? everything works when i boot into windows 7 ok.

any ideas why my usb build doesnt work anymore on new PC?

cheers in advance

Damn. Lost another post, I'm going to have to get into the habit of copying and pasting from a text editor.

Anyway, short grumpy version:

Probably a driver problem with your motherboard chipset. The fact that it boots to the desktop indicates that the USB drivers are working for the memory stick, so it's strange that they won't for the keyboard/mouse.

If keyboard & mouse are USB, then try PS/2 post if available. If using PS/2 ports, try USB.

Remember to run xsetup to configure the mouse to work.

Check the BIOS settings for any compatibility modes that have to do with the USB controller or mouse & keyboard support.
