How to reset IRQs in Windows XP when the keyboard's IRQ is disabled?
I disabled the IRQs, in Windows Device Manager - not the motherboard setup, that controls my keyboard and my USB ports. I was going to re-inable them but my computer restarted. Now I am at the Windows welcome screen and I cannot use my keyboard to hit ctrl+alt+del to log in. How do I reset Windows' IRQs and get my keyboad back?
I have tried a PS2 Keyboard and a USB Keyboard. No dice.
I have tried restoring just the Windows directory. No dice.
Tried Safe Mode. No dice.
Both the PS2 and USB keyboards work in BIOS, just not in Windows.
I could restore the entire boot drive from a backup, will that help? Is there an easier way to reset the IRQs in Windows?
