do not mark threads as urgent. it is *NOT* urgent for any of us.

Your title needs actually reflect something about the contents of you thread. what if everyone just said "please help"... that would be one dysfunctional forum.

And while we're on making suggestions regarding style:
Pidgin English and SMSish aren't really appreciated, either.
English with punctuation would be good.



Cheers,

may we ask what keyboard and mouse you have, and did you install from dvd or from a live cd.

What is "general system configuration page"? If it's an X program, are mouse and keybord working in other X applications?
Is a keyboard working in console?

Samotnix has a good point about if the keyboard works when X isn't running. There's a script that starts you up into runlevel 5 (init 5) and if it was changed to 'init 3' X wouldn't start and you would have no GUI, but they might work there.

If you have a fedora or other live cd where the keyboard and mouse work then boot it and rename your xorg.conf file xorg.old or something (this is found at /etc/X11/xorg.conf).

With the file missing when you try again to boot into fedora it will start whatever wizard they use and recreate it. You could also try editing it and fixing whatever it thinks your keyboard and mouse are. I haven't personally seen this in fedora core 2 through fedora 9, so good luck.

PS Please try to remember that we stop by these forums to answer questions for people for a variety of reasons, but most of us aren't really all that compelled to dig deep into every issue or worry about things like poor "customer service" (I don't have any customers on this site!) I don't generally mind about *URGENT* threads but others seem to but it is a good idea to write a title that tells us what you need help with. I follow their RSS feed and only generally read posts if I know something about their issue.
