No keyboard or mouse on Compaq Presario C700 Sub_title: keyboard and mouse do not work on Compaq Presario C700 neither does a usb mouse
Please keep in mind I'm a massive linux noob.
I downloaded puppy linux 5.5 4G for my laptop Compaq Presario C700 and burnt it to a DVD disc, upon booting into the OS I get the wizard screen for settings. At this point the mouse does not work and the keyboard does not work I also tried plugging in a usb mouse and it did not work either.
Both the keyboard and mouse are 100% functional and work fine in windows 7.
I searched the net for a long time and could not really find any solid info on this issue and other people with the same laptop seem to not have this issue.
I have also tried a USB version of the OS and still the same issue.
Please any help would be greatly appreciated as my only alternative at this point is to try another Linux distro.
