Can't use Keyboard or Mouse at Windows Vista startup.
Hello all! I have an older Dell Inspiron 530s i got from a buddy for about $40 a few months ago and an having an issue with it. He originally thought that the HDD was bad, as it would boot up and give an error, although this turned out to be the PC thinking it had a second CD ROM and could be passed by pressing a key. Windows Vista would boot up fine to the login screen. However, at this point i could no longer use my keyboard and mouse. I ended up using the PC for experiments, Going from Windows XP, to Windows 7, to Windows 10 (These three were tri booted), to Windows 8, back to Windows 7, and to Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. All Windows versions aside from the XP installations had performance issues ranging from small to big. I would stick with XP Media Center Edition, however i've found it does not have the necessary drivers for some of my equipment, and i cannot find those drivers (i'm using a VEX USB adapter as a Wi-Fi adapter, life hacks). I've decided to give Windows Vista a chance again, and am determined to figure out the issue this time. It's currently installing and i'm going to test if the power is being turned off at startup or not. Any ideas?
(Sorry for the long read)
(I'm using it as a media player connected to my tv if anyone is wondering, gonna fill it with my movies)
