    i installed boot camp for games a few months ago and it has been working ok, but now whenever i boot up in windows my mouse and keyboard do not work at all. The lights don't even light up.

    any ideas on how to fix this or what caused this? I'm running bootcamp 1.3... I installed bootcamp assistant 1.4 but I don't know exactly how to upgrade it without completely reinstalling windows... or do you have to do that with each bootcamp upgrade?

    yeah... i tried 2 different mac keyboards, and 1 HP mouse and 1 mac mouse. I also tried combinations of them plugged into different usb ports as well as through a usb hub.

    Do any other USB peripherals show signs of connectivity?

    Open bootcamp 1.4 and use it to burn a cd of drivers. Use the CD to install the drivers in windows.

    What keyboard / mouse do you use? If it's non-Apple then you need to hunt down the windows drivers (you actually have to look for drivers for almost all pieces of hardware in windows)...
