dell xps m1530

installed iatkos s3 v2

had everything working

installed another m1530 user's dsdt

that caused it to only boot in safe mode

installed a a different users dsdt in safe mode

& removed appleHDR.kext (i believe that was the name)

this brought me to my problem


typically i would boot with -f and everything would load fine

now everything boots, and i get to my desktop

2 folders (2 i had up before the problems started) and skype pop up

i can move my mouse but cannot click anything (same for external mouse)

i cannot type with my keyboard

i do not believe it is frozen because the skype login button keeps flashing


if i try to boot into safe mode (-x) i get to the apple login screen

again i cannot click or type anything


is my only option to do a complete reinstall?

i booted into the install disk and repaired the disk, and repaired permissions but it did not change anything

Desperate for help, ive already scrounged the Internet and cant find anyone with similar problem
