So I tried updating to Catalyst 14.4 Beta from Catalyst 14.3 Beta, which just came out today. For some reason the screen went black, with a command line cursor blinking on the top left. It was there for about five minutes at least, so I went to prepare some food. I came back to the same screen about 10 minutes later, so I tried pressing Number Lock, Caps Lock etc, and their corresponding lights were unresponsive. The hard drive light was also not flashing at all, so I did a hard reset using the reset button on my case.
The system booted into the desktop fine, but with Aero disabled and the resolution on 640x480. An error message from Catalyst popped up saying that AMD drivers weren't installed. I decided to run AMD's Clean Uninstall Utility to clean up the graphics driver before retrying the install (That's what they said this was for right...??). During the process, my keyboard and mouse stopped working. I did another hard reset, and it booted into the system, still with the mouse and keyboard unresponsive. I have no idea what to do now -_-... Very frustrating...
- The mouse and keyboard are both USB
- Both plugged into USB 2.0 ports
- Keyboard and mouse won't work on any of the USB ports
- M5A99X EVO R2.0 board
- Sapphire Radeon 7950
- Windows 7 64 bit Professional
I made a bootable Linux Mint flash drive on another computer, booted into Linux, copied over ALL the files in my installation of TeamViewer (If I only copied over the TeamViewer setup file from their website, I would have to click "run only", or install it for it to run, and tell me the user ID, and password, but I can't exactly do that without my mouse and keyboard) into Windows' Startup folder (
Reboot into Windows, and hope that TeamViewer is the topmost window that shows up. I took a picture of the window, and is now controlling my desktop from my laptop.
Afterwards, I tried:
- Reinstalling Asmedia's USB Controller drivers. Freshly downloaded from ASUS' website. Windows says drivers failed to install...
- Installing chipset drivers freshly downloaded from ASUS' website. No effect...
- Removed Asmedia's USB Controller drivers, and THEN installing. Still same result as 1st time... (I also reboot after each installation as well)
