Now...I think I've got a quick-and-dirty solution, plug out all USB
devices including mouse, keyboard, etc.(continued below)

And reboot the computer with FreeBSD 7 CD...finally I could see the

It's not the final solution. I think many people are experiencing this
problem. But if that's the only way you've never tried, try it.
Hopefully it will work in many situations. :)

OK, thanks for sharing the helpful info with me.
