RE: Keyboard failure
This worked on my Studio XPS desktop PC running Windows XP Premium Home Edition:
- Power off PC
- Unplug the power cord from the back of the PC
- Press and hold the "power on" button for 20-30 seconds (this drains the remainder of power from the system)
- Plug the power cord back into the PC
- Power on PC and check for keyboard and mouse availability.
Thanks for the suggestion!
