Keyboard and Mouse don't work on certain computers
 
The keyboard and mouse won't work while live booting Ubuntu from CD on a Acer Verition M264. I've tried PS/2 and USB mice. This problem starts from when Ubuntu loads, keyboard and mouse is fine until that point. There's also a complaint message once it's loaded up:
The panel encountered a problem while
loading
"OAFIID:GNOME_FastUserSwitchApplet".

On a Dell Inspiron and a Acer Aspire X3200, Ubuntu 9.10 works just fine.

That's not handy to fix, because it's catch-22. you need keyboard & mouse to fix them :-/.
Try another live cd.

Took PC to nearby computer shop. Turns out problem was that the BIOS was set for a Windows system and needed to be reset to Legacy. All versions of Ubuntu Linux now working fine.
