    If I boot with a True Image disc to create a backup I can not use the mouse. This system does not have any ps/2 ports, only usb.

    I can get around with the keyboard but when I reach the screen for comments I'm not sure how to get out of the text field and to the buttons to make the backup.

    I'm having the same problem with my Dell E521, except I can't use the keyboard either (it's usb) if I boot to TI in normal mode - if I boot to safe mode, I can use the keyboard & mouse, but my usb external drive isn't detected, and that's where my backup image is located.

    I've read of others having similar problems, and it seems that the common factor is the Dell computer.
