Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Mouse/keyboard not responding - Cannot boot in Safe Mode.

\015 Mouse and keyboard not responding. Cannot boot into Safe Mode. No response to pressing F2, F8 or F12 during restart. Cursor is stuck in the middle of the log in page. Tried different USB ports and different mice - no luck. Tried Ctrl-Alt-Del twice to get to manual log in page - no luck.\015\012\015\012Recently got rid of the Antivirus Pro and Xp Antivirus Viruses. There may have been a hidden file that is now blocking use of the computer. I would like to reload Windows but I can't get to the Bios to change the boot drive. Is it possible to remove a drive and install in another Win Xp computer then boot up and debug? Will the second computer's Bios recognize the affected hard drive? I understand Bios is loaded in non-volatile memory on the motherboard. Is there software I can load on the second computer that will allow this?\015\012\015\012Going to a computer repair shop is going to be expensive. I have considered buying a new hard drive and reinstalling Windows. I did manage to do a backup of my data a little while a go while dealing with the virus. So hopefully it can be reinstalled.\015\012\015\012Any help and suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.\015

Answers :

You may use the mouse and key board with PS2 plug (not USB). Most of the bios recognise PS2 configuration rather than USB. If it does not help, you can reset Bios by looking to your mainboard manual or looking the reset pins of Bios located on the main. It usually has a jumper on two pins and another one is open. Take off the jumper and put back to the open pin. Wait 2 min, then take off the jumper to original position. The bios was now clear off. If you could not do such complicated procedure, don't worry-take off the CMOS battery out for 2 min, then put back. It does the same clearance of Bios. Good luck
Ok ...if you have a blocked situation ..and can not boot to make any analytic observations...I recomand reinstalling ...but this must be done in your computer cause there are no same devices in 2 computers and it will not boot the way you said ....But....,you can try to take your HDD place in another computer ....and format it clean ...deleting all it has on it ...after that ...if any viruses or data on it was bloking the function ...now it must work ....
buy the way ...imagine that you have a new one ...and on the hdd have nothing at all ...so even no drivers for mouse and keyboard..... its brand new.....you can still get into bios....the commands from the key board must work .....it will not see the mouse until the files for installing windows aren't loaded...but the bios can be accesed with no hdd on...maybe you fried something into it .....I can not tell you for sure ..even if this is my trade.....Im a few tousen miles away and can't project exactly in my mind...try to remove the bios battery ....for a few seconds this will restore the factory defaults ...and when you boot will ask to get into settings(bios) almost obligated...t set the time ...and date ....so then you can take a look to the boot device order and save to boot from the disk first....
Keep me informed ,,maybe I get ideas if I know what it is behaving like ....
have a good day !
