A51m behavior changed
After a virus messed-up my system and unable to straightenout after getting rid of the virus I made the plunge to repartition, reformat and install from scratch and pretty much did the steps described by poorboy.
After all the basic installation is done I notice right away that the lappy behavior changed.
1. When I access the CD-rom it also goes to the floppy.
2. USB device not recognized.
3. PS2 mouse not able to detect
4. On shut down it scan the floppy, cannot figure out what application told to do this.
5. When it goes to floppy the the sound is scratchy rather than normal
6. At night I left the lappy running but close the lid, and in the morning the lappy cannot get out of the sleepmode, even though I set to never to shut off.
Can any one tell me how to fix these problems.
Thanks very much
