Mak it sounds like you have a few problems there. Good luck!!
Shockingly i did nothing. I unhooked the PC. Put everything in my truck and moved it here. Now they jsut do nto want to work. XP will not recognize the keyboard. Even though it is in the same USB port. Vista just crashes. Keyboard, sound and a couple of the other drivers are corrupt. At least i have Ubuntu. I can reinstall the other 2 later....
It feels good to be back on the net.
I have opened the PC and reseated everything. Along with checking all the drives and the PSU cables. Everything is the way it was. :lup:Check that the move hasn't dislodged anything, wires, connectors, memory sticks, cards/boards etc. etc.
Reminds me of a friend who was ready to chuck his machine out of the window in despair until I took the case off and discovered that the battery had dislodged, which is bad enough, but it had landed on his video card and was shorting it out. Fortunately no permanent damage was done.
The funny thing is, my experience with Windows and Linux is the exact opposite. If I ever change the slightest thing in my hardware config (from as simple as switching around the locations of drives or PCI cards to as big as changing the motherboard) Linux will no longer boot, but Windows (via safe mode and a bunch of other workarounds) will come-to just fine.....
But in your case the hardware didn't actually change....
In my case it was cable, try switching cables, both for power and PC connector and test. :evil:
