         While fixing a "C:\WINDOWS\System32\Config d"by replacing  system with C:\WINDOWS\repair copy,  Keyboard and mouse fail to work although it will now boot.  Also it seems to be in 16 colors,  Safe mode will not let me in either.  The PC has more than enough memory and the HDD can be read as a slave off another PC.  Unfortunatly when I did that and ran CHKDSK the second PC developed the same problem.  Both hard drives have been scanned for viruses and Norton found nothing.  I have PCanywhere installed on the HDD's could that do anything???  I'm all out of ideas......

If you keyboard and mouse dont work you are kind of dead in the water useless you can get them to work in Recovery Console. But not sure if that will help either.

Unless,

Are these a USB keyboard/mouse. If so plug a PS2 keyboard mouse in temporarily to get back to Device Manager and fix your USB stuff.

Are you connections the wrong way around?

     No I actually have a PS/2 mouse and keyboard so I tried the opposite using USB mouse and Keyboard still no reaction from either device.  I have quadruple checked my connections with my fellow peers.  Also they are detected at the BIOS level.  Thanks for the input.

Some versions of PC Anywhere introduce this problem. I've seen it back in 2000, but i believe it's completely fixed in later versions. Have you tried to log into "Safe mode Command Prompt Only"?

         I tried "Last known good configuration" and  "Network Safe mode"  both to no avail.
