Ok, so my DVD burner would not burn, the program said it was but it never did, so I swapped out burners and reinstalled the prgram and still no joy, THEN for some reason my keyboard disappeared, it was not in control panel keyboards or system hardwear. it would not show up in Belarc or anywhere I could try. I swapped out 4 different keybds and no joy. I dug down and found a old old keyboard and it works, the keybd that didnt work is working fine on a different computer. I tryed both types of keybd plugs, etc ! It took over 6 hours of musical keybds but its working now ! So the question is could the MB-keyboard plug or bits be going bad and works when it wants after a smaking on the side (changing keybds) or could it be a break in the XP program ? OH and the burner is now burning great again ! Weird right ? Any ideas ????
