When Puppy loads on my office PC, it doesn't detect my mouse and keyboard. I tried loading puppy on a different PC and there I was asked the language of the keyboard and what type of mouse was connected.

I think both PCs are of the same mobo, HD, and CPU, except for the memory. The latter PC had a much lower memory than the former. I wonder what's wrong.

I'll try it again

That's weird. Now it ran out fine. I thought something went wrong with my hardware Laughing

It happens all the time in any machine I use. The CDROM sometimes reads from the device successfully, sometimes not. My home CPU often could not get the CDROM to spin during the first cold-boot. But after the warm-up, all is well (hmmm, just like the idea of warming up by walking, eh).

Must be the damp air of the tropics...

Might be worth updating your system BIOS. Often later versions have improved drive support which can improve performance before the OS is fully loaded. My Dell laptop was erratic at restarting from Hibernate in Windows. After BIOS updated it was 200% better and much quicker. Removable drive performance is also often improved.

Newbie warning: updating BIOS is risky!

It could well not help with this problem. It could make other things worse...

For any intermittent problem -- get scientific. Test about a dozen times, until you can get the percentages pinned down.

fair point ... it is possible to trash your motherboard when doing a BIOS update ... but I've had huge benefits from doing the update. Possibly because the original that shipped with my Dell laptop was so lousy ... now up to revision A31 ! ... the update process is now much easier too, at least for Dells.
