Any diagnosis of the following problem with Mathematica 6.0.3 running on
Windows XP Pro: In the Front end, if I try to evaluate an expression
with the usual Shift-Enter (or the numeric keypad's Enter), it merely
creates a new line, and no evaluation takes place.
The kernel is OK, as I can start that manually and evaluate expressions
So what might have causes the break between Front end and Kernel and,
specifically, the reaction to Shift-Return.
Background: This system had its motherboard blown by a power surge over
my university's power lines, despite a surge protector. The motherboard
was replaced. The hard drives did not seem to have been affected.
AT first I was concerned that the new MB would change the MathID and
hence require a new password. But the very same mathpass file still
seems to work OK.
