Hi try this,

while booting machine, press F-8 repeatedly before going into windows XP.
it will give a windows advanced boot options.

choose safemode to boot,

your mouse and keyboard should work in safemode,
go to device manager--
start-control panel--systems--hardware--device manager--remove any unknown device from the list.
Also in device manager, click on Universal Serial Bus controllers,
double click on usb root hub (all of them one by one) and go to power management tab and remove the tick from "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".

if this isn't work

Solutions 2:

1. remove all other usb devices,
2.boot in safe mode,
3.. remove usb key board and mouse driver, restart windows normally and windows should auto detect and install the drivers.
any question feel free to send it across.

Good luck
