This is seriously just freaking me out right now. So I've run Windows 7 basically without the slightest hitch since that wonderful 6801 build. 7068 has been quite clearly the best build for me so far, minus that odd pausing in WMP glitch. Yet today, i have realized the God's of Tech hate me. First, I started having an extremely annoying problem with windows taking FOREVER to log off(as in, even after hours, it would not log off). I had this issue only when i had first install 7068, but it dissapeared after the first day. In trying to figure out this issue, I had to do several restarts, unfortunately 90% of them being forced shutdown via holding the power button because the system would not shut down otherwise. Furthermore, half the time I turned it on, apparently many of the services would not start, as I could not change my volume levels, and almost every single system tray icon was missing. I've been trying to fix that issue since this weekend, but today it was just so much more annoying since I actually needed to use my PC for schoolwork. And now, just half an hour ago I finallyyyyy seemed to have fixed the problem. The issue seemed to have been simply because I had an SD card in the SD slot. Ridonculous. I went through system restores, 80,000 restarts, startup repairs, registry edits and cleanups, and the problem was an SD card being in the slot. T_T
So, you would think that after this whole ordeal, I would get a break? No, now I get something even MORE bizarre. Once the PC finally shuts down right after removing the SD card, I click enter during the operating system select screen, only to realize, my keyboard has failed me. Like, it will not recognize any inputs. Even in the Compaq logo screen where I have the time to enter the bios, none of my inputs are read.
So here I am, thinking there is some sort of hardware failure for my keyboard, going through several more restarts, when I notice that my keyboard works PERFECTLY FINE inside of windows seven!
So thats not so bad right? At least my keyboard works where it matters.
Well yea, my keyboard works, but not my touchpad. Thank goodness for all those windows 7 shortcuts I learned, that allowed me to navigate through the OS without a mouse, lol! I had to access sevenforums without a mouse.
This is so odd, I'm posting this almost more for the sheer oddity of it rather than to get assistance haha!
I'm going to try a couple of more fixes and see if that does anything. If not, I'll try to get an external keyboard and mouse from somewhere and see how that works out. This is soooo strange. >_<
