keyboard and mouse stop responding


I just installed Slackware 10, but it did this same thing with RH 9. When I start/x up xwindows it loads up fine. But the keyboard and mouse do not do anything. Num/Caps Lock will not even light up. But the computer is not frozen. Any ideas?

Keyboard and mouse USB or PS2 ??

Did you configure your Xserver ??
use this #xorgconfig to configure your Xserver.

Provide more details...

Looks like that...

You could give the ps2 to Usb connector a shot
