I m using a wireless keyboard and mouse. If its connected when i m booting it doesn't load workbench.
If i boot without it its working and a beautiful workbench appears. NOW, if i insert the usb-receiver
again both keyboard and mouse is working.
My first thought is 'How the h___ is it doing that'.
From the picture it looks like the computer is booting using Boot_without_Startup-Sequence.
Hardware? Software? Communications?
Try moving the the M&K or computer to where it is almost Line-of-sight to the USB receiver
for those units.
Low or a single bad battery in the mouse or keyboard can cause erroneous communications.
Generally there is only one transmitter for the mouse & keyboard. If yours has a on-off switch
try turning it off and booting, or remove the batteries. If that makes no difference then the
problem may be the receiver is not being recognized properly.
If the transmitter is in the mouse you could remove the batteries for the keyboard and see what
Software. Make sure you have a second boot source before messing around.
There are two different sets of drivers for the mouse and keyboard. Since you say they work fine
after workbench is fully loaded and then plug in the receiver that would leave the boot drivers.
In the Kicklayout file you can 'comment out' the Bootmouse and/or Bootkeyboard modules to test this.
Doing this however will deny you access to the Early Start menu, which your probably not using at this time anyway.
The second set of drivers take over control when startup reaches the line 'USBctrl START' in your
S:Startup-sequence. These are the drivers that are active when plugging USB stuff in after workbench
is loaded. USBctrl also starts the logging and why explains you don't have one,,,,because it's not
getting to that command line.
You can try different USB ports or plug the receiver into a hub. Hubs are not recognized until
See what happens with other mouse and keyboard combos.
