    So I go to turn on my computer this morning and when it boots up (Windows Vista 64bit), neither the mouse (wireless) or the keyboard (PS2->USB) work. So I replace the batteries in the mouse...Nothing... I use a normal USB keyboard and wired mouse...Nothing... I try to boot it in safe mode (keyboard will work before anything Windows appears, so I can get into the BIOS or boot safe mode), and safe mode acts the same way.

    I have Linux Live CD. Boots it, mouse works! Selects try... Black screen... Drive stops spinning... Using 32bit CD on 64bit system... Downloading 64bit currently.

    Thanks!

    Confirmed that mouse/keyboard works on Ubuntu. Also, it seems that no power is going to the USB ports in windows. If I plug in my iPod it won't even charge. Though, the num lock key lights up.
