Regedit I did it again?

By Frogwillie2001 ·
First I like to thank all of you for your advice on how to over ride my hard drive.
Now my new problem.

I was trying to update my drivers for my CD/DVD.

After following the simple instructions of going into the regedit and the hkey and removing one of the reg keys I lose my mouse and keyboard drivers.

I back it up in my document folder.

It was suppose to put them back after restarting.

Well it didn't.

I can get the keybroard to work in dos/safe mode but just can't get the drivers to come back on.

Can I put the windows disk in, start my PC from there without loseing anything?

Yes this is the same PC with winXP on it.

Thanks for your help in advance.

WMP version?

by NI70 In reply to Regedit I did it again?

You haven't stated which version of WMP you're using. Assuming you've updated to WMP 10 or was it a security update? Since you can boot into safe mode, why don't you uninstall the update or WMP completely and download the latest version?

D'OH! I should have read your post better. I see that you hacked your registry to fix a keyboard/mouse issue. Did you not make a back up of your registry? That's the first thing you should do when you hack your registry. Try hacking your registry while in safe mode. And follow the instructions to a "T".
