I re-build my system everthing backed up excecpt for system was not complete. Last job was sourcing drivers from dell. I updated an intel system board driver. The PC boots up up the keyboard and mouse willl not work think the usb controller is screwed. when the pc is booting up the keyboard and mouse work long enough to press F8 etc. but as soon as windows kicks in the light goes off on keyboard and mouse the system loads ok to desktop but cannot use keyboard and mouse to go back to a previous resotre point. the following are the steps I have tried
1. Press F8 go to safe mode. Same problem as soon as windows loads light goes off keyboard and mouse willl not work
2. Press F8 went to option last know good configuration-- same issue
3. Booted from xp boot disk went to do a windows repair as soon as I get to the first screen to choose option for expample press enter to re-install windows. the light on the keyboard and mouse goes off again.
In real trouble here spent 8 hours building system for my work tommorow all files backed up but no system backup. At this stage would re-install xp if I could
1. Loaded in safe
