Okay, stupid question, but I have to ask... did you try using a different keyboard and mouse?
cisqotek:
Are your keyboard and mouse wired USB?

This problem occurs sometime when you are using USB hub for wireless connectivity of Keyboard and mouses. So i would recommend you to use PS2 mouse and keyboard.
As far as finishing windows repair is concern simply restart your system. It will start from the very same place.

i went out and bought a ps2 keyboard and mouse which by the way are hard to find, for some reason the ps2/usb adapters were not working, but everything worked fine with ps2 keyboard/mouse thanks for your help
