I'm using Windows XP, Media Center Edition 2002, SP-2. Frequently on startup, my keyboard does not work. That is, I can't type. I have to reboot to use it. The keyboard works OK on a Windows XP Home Edition, SP-2 but is having troubles with the Media Center Edition.
It's a Microsoft keyboard and I've reloaded the driver. But this did not solve the problem. I tried another keyboard, with the same resulting problem. It seems to me it has to be a Windows issue. I visited the Microsoft web site and their only suggestion is to reload the driver.
The problem is intermittent. That is, it occurs say every third or fourth startup. The board power lights are on, but you can't type without rebooting. I can't type in any program or in dialog boxes.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
