I bought a new Compaq Presario 5103AN on 3 months ago.
I started play the computer. But Keyboard (USB) & Mouse (PS2) was freeze. I looked the program still running. I can't move the keyboard or mouse was freeze. Then I press [ALT+CTRL+DEL] was working a once when popup the Task Manager Windows. Then I try down arrow key won't work and other keys won't work. *sigh* then I press[ALT+CTRL+DEL] again to reset the computer.

I had reset the computer and few minutes the keyboard & mouse was freeze again. I try other my old PS2 Keyboard was same freeze it. Try a MS IntelliMouse Optical USB has same freeze. Uhmmm.....

I have many times reset the PC.....Give it up !

You bought it new three months ago.

If you had paid 2 or 3 kilodollars for other home appliances, and they stopped working in 3 months, you would have a word to the shop wouldn't you?

Why not go back to the shop and say 'make it go'?

Hi Graham,

There is got 1 yr warranty and worth $4k !

So I have complained with Compaq helpdesk are not sure about the driver, Hardware or software... I tried that it was not working. They're not right.

I think might be the motherboard are faulty as possible.
