Ok, I have a very strange problem that started 3 days ago. I haven't done anything unusual or different in the last 3 days, so I have no idea what has prompted this issue.
What happens is that every time the computer goes into sleep mode, when I try to "wake it up" by hitting the escape key on the keyboard like I always do, the keyboard and mouse, which are both connected to the USB ports on the back of the computer, are dead (in fact anything connected by USB ports is dead). So, naturally, without either one to kick start the computer, I have to hit the power bar and shut the computer off and restart it to get those items working again.
When I went into the Future Shop by my home, the tech-guy there said he figured it might be a software driver issue. I have no problem updating a driver if I know which driver I'm supposed to update and where to find it.
I have Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit. The computer specs are as follows:
Acer Aspire AMD 5200, 9550 Processor, 640 GB DDR2 memory, 640 GB Sata hard drive, ATI Radeon HD 3650 graphics driver.
I hope that's all the information I need to post. Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.
