Hi. I tried adding a user but nothing....I have a second account on that comuter and it is not password protected. I logged in through that and activated the onscreen keyboard. from there i went to user acounts [the button by the clock] and switched users I was able to use the on screen keyboard to type my password.
After i logged out of safemode and rebooted, nothing was successfull. I couldn't type anything.
I have just pulled out of the closet and am now on my powerbook g3 pismo typing...my project is too big and my computer is too slow for this one. I may be able to try the firewire boot using my pismo but i don't know what good it will do until i know exactly what to do
Have you done a PRAM reset...
Does the Keyboard show up in System Profiler?Hardware>USB?
Could it be some broken 3rd party thing?
If it works in Safe Mode but not a regular bootup, then Check System Preferences>Accounts>Login Items window to see if it or something relevant is listed. Check the Other row in System Preferences.
Also look in these if they exist, some are invisible...
i guess it may be a third part problem.
i am trying to start it in safe boot as i type.
i thought i would let you know that i have already tried to zap the pram but it will not even let me do that....im not sure it will even let my boot it through firewire...
i am checking to see if those files are there....are they files in a directory or something i should look for through the terminal? if so, how?
