My friend accidentally deleted all the USB device drivers in the PC and I CAN NOT use mouse NOR keyboard in window. I restarted computer and press F12 to enter the BIOS, I CAN use Keyboard here! and I went to check the USB device and there are all "On" status. Here I tired to "Off" all USB devices and restarted PC and tried to "ON" back but I still could not use my mouse nor keyboard in Window. I tried to shut down the PC wait for 5 min and tried again also no use.
Then I check from the internet, hope that I can repair the window and also the driver and found this site (http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm
I followed exactly and did the steps until
3 Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.
To setup Windows XP now and Repair Install , press ENTER. do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read Warning#2!
I pressed the second R and the repair is in the progress. Until a stage where I need to use mouse or keyboard to click, I COULD NOT use the mouse or keyboard (I only have USB port no PS2 port).
After that, I did another stupid thing! I searched in the Internet for more information. I found a solution to use F8 to restore to "Last Known Good Configuration", it display a blue screen with a message "Setup is being restarted...." then load the next page with a non-movable mouse pointer and a black screen and stuck there.
The next time I restart the PC without pressing any key, it will show 2 pages.
- Blue screen with a message "Setup is bring restarted...."
-Then, a black screen with just a mouse pointer.
Now the questions are
a. How can I cancel the repair window? or continue it without the mouse or keyboard?
b. Why I can use keyboard in bios but not in the window? and how can I restored usb driver in DOS? I searched for many solution in google but not much help.
For your information, I have important date inside so I can not format it. The worst case scenario I can think of is buy External Hard disk casing and HOPE that I can copy the data to another computer and may be need to format it.
I really feel STUPID!! I think I should tried to restore to the "Last Known Good Configuration..."before I repair it.
I really hope that I can solve the problem without formatting my PC. Hope that someone here can help me. Thanks.
