Hey, thanks very much for the response I appreciate it.
Good call - the keyboard does work for me at the immediate startup I was able to tap f8 and select safe mode. But once windows has loaded, the keyboard does not work. I'm in safe mode with command prompt now and the keyboard does not work.
This is a new system (2 days old) and have only accessed the internet and downloads once to install itunes and mozilla firefox. Once those windows 7 updates completed - along came the error and it's respective issues. There were no traces of viruses in my virus scan with 'avira antivir'.
Still getting the error
, no keyboard after windows has loaded, no internet, and very slow windows load times.
