    Default laptop KB and touchpad don't work in XP

    Hey.
    I have an Asus m5n laptop.
    i didn't use it for about 2 weeks, (purchased a mac!) anyway, i decided i'd sell it, so switched it on and found that the keyboard and touchpad wouldn't work.
    i thought oweel i'll just do a format and clean install (as i want to sell it) and that should fix it.
    weird thing is, the KB works fine in the BIOS and installation/partitioning setup, but as soon as XP loads theres nothing, so i'm using a usb mouse and KB.

    ANd its teh same for the touch pad...

    any ideas?
    im guessing its a software or driver setting somewhere??

    Cheers

    Is your Asus laptop brand new?

    After installing the latest appropriate drivers, and if they still don't work, take it back to ASUS.

    Remember, ASUS carries a 2 years International warranty.

    Does your lappie have a touchpad lock? That is a combination of two buttons to lock the touchpad?

    I'm not sure if it matters when your restart but that is another possibility.
