installation on new gigabyte laptop has no mouse or keyboard

Postby vadali » Sun May 31, 2009 1:23 pm

Hi,

I got me a new laptop, and decided to give mint a choice.
When the computer boots up, keyboard is working great, also the first boot menu on the installation cd works great. once i choose to load mint up (tried both Installer only and full mint live) - only then the keyboard stops responding (as in capslock doesnt change colors anymore), and the mouse and keyboard do not respond.

An extra usb mouse which i had laying around here managed to work, and I am now making my way through the installation by copy-pasting from random sources the needed letters (for my username password, hdd partitioning etc..).

I am yet to know if the full install will fix it, i must run now, but this is really not a great start with mint..

How can we make it recognize the keyboard and mouse??

thanks,
vadali

ok, really quick update.
the install finished wonderfully in a few minutes, but still no mouse keyboard (only external usb mouse)...

soooooo

i changed the keyboard device (under Control Center -> Hardware -> Keyboard ----> layouts -> keyboard model) to Winbook Model XP5 ( a totally random pick), rebooted and walllah! keyboard and mouse!

yey for me, still though.. harsh start :)
