Guys,

I have Inspiron 600m. I was able to successfully install 10.4.5 and when I rebooted it the first time around. My touchpad and keyboard did not work. It will recognize USB keyboard and mouse though. I reinstalled it again and while it reboot the first time around, my keyboard worked but not the touchpad. After I restarted it again, this time around my keyboard and touchpad both did not work. I searched the whole forum in vain.

 

I would really appreciate it a lot if someone can help me.

 

Thanks a lot

If I had to guess, you installed the Universal 10.4.4 with 10.4.5 update install DVD. It has permission problems on a few kexts, PS2 being one of them.

 

With a USB keyboard/mouse, open Terminal and type:

 

This Universal Install DVD has screwed up permissions on specific kexts, namely:

 

AppleAC97Audio

AppleAC97AudioIntelICH

ApplePS2Controller

 

and maybe:

 

AudioIPCDriver.kext

AppleMLANAudio.kext

AppleHDA.kext

 

The issue can be fixed by loading up terminal and typing:

 

cd /System/Library/Extensions

sudo find nameofkext.kext -type d -exec /bin/chmod 0755 {} \;

sudo find nameofkext.kext -type f -exec /bin/chmod 0644 {} \;

 

Disk Utility will not fix the problem automatically.
