Windows 10: Windows 10 dilemma!

    Windows 10 dilemma!


    So impressed with my upgrade and within 10 minutes I opted for the clean install, all was great a few niggles with my Xonar DGX sound card, but overall very pleased....But decided today to take my PC to someone's house to show them that W10 is worth the upgrade, I didn't take my Ps2 mouse or Ps2 keyboard, my friend said he had spares, anyway nothing worked, I mean nothing, got to welcome screen, then went black, then it re-booted to welcome screen ad infinitum, also mouse or keyboard didn't work. This morning it was perfect at my house, read my emails then closed it down properly, then removed a few usb's from the back, also monitor & ethernet cable, any ideas, I am totally stumped by this. I had to rush off, so I am collecting PC tomorrow, at the moment using my laptop with W10 working a treat.
    By the by, years ago clean installs was via Fdisk, and I remember the keyboard always was functionable, then later the mouse.
    Your thoughts what could have caused this embarrassing situation in front of my friend who sits on the fence when it comes to new technology. Cheers

    The universe is a strange thing - Win10 is obviously not for your friend.....apart from that, I have no idea what happened.

    Sounds like something with the outlet or cabling. Not using one of those cheap two-pin (ie no ground) extensions at your friend's house are you>?

    If you can access the inside, make sure everything is all connected and there are no loose wires.

    Could try a system restore: System Restore Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Could try to refresh: Refresh Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    To get to the above tutorials, you have to boot to advanced start-up options: Advanced Startup Options - Boot to in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums - If you can't, you will have to follow a semi-complicated process to put a Windows 10 ISO to a spare USB device to access it from there. I can show you how, but first steps first.

    Don't discount that it may be hardware-related.

    Let me see if I have this right. It works fine at your house with your mouse and keyboard but doesn't at your friends with his mouse and keyboard. If that is correct, it sounds very much like a driver issue.

    You have moved the PC so, like DustSailor says, check everything is seated properly.

    But aren't computers sods when they show you up? But, I guess it isn't as bad as the MS CEO having a stuff up on stage

    Thanks to you all for the input above, I was totally baffled, anyway brought the PC home last night, plugged the basics in keyboard, monitor, ethernet...absolutely nothing just boot up to home screen, no mouse or keyboard. Then plugged in an old usb (have about 7 fitted in the back) and woila the mouse and keyboard came to life, and puta is working a treat. One of the usb's was to a belkin 4 way usb port and my optical digital mouse works from that signal.
    So windows 10 seems like it doesn't come with an array of drivers for basic support unless hardwired.
    Once again cheers.

    Like one of the other members said, still sounds like a driver issue. After doing a clean install, Windows puts in its own drivers, and some of us have ended up having to update some of our drivers, from the computer maker, or motherboard maker.

    I can change keyboards and mouse on my system with older ones I have here, with no problem.

    As long as it's working that's really what's important. Out of curiosity, when u installed 10 did you remove everything except your mouse and keyboard?
