Keyboard/Mouse Not Working

Postby csvsai » Wed Mar 25, 2009 9:48 am

Hello,
I am dual booting Felicia with XP Pro.
My Keyboard and mouse are working fine in windows.
Keyboard is also working in Grub Loader and recovery mode of mint as well as in shell(one in recovery mode).
I haven't updated in a while. Only unusual thing that happened is that it was not shutdown properly.
What should i do. There is also some data in that drive which i don't want to lose.

If it was shut down incorrectly then boot from the live cd, enter a terminal and run

Code: Select all

sudo fdisk -l


From this you should be able to determine the device address of your linux partition if you don't already know it. The clue is to look for the word 'Linux' at the end of the line and then look at the address at the beginning of the line. It will probably be something like "/dev/sda2". Once you have determined this run

Code: Select all

e2fsck -p /dev/sda2


substituting /dev/sda2 for whatever the correct address is. This will repair the file system for you. When this is complete remove the live cd, reboot and see if that has fixed it.
