Win 7 USB mouse and keyboard drivers not working:
KNOWN GOOD mouse and keybd allow INPUT TO bios, and in thumb drive windows (HIREM MINI WINDOWS) session.

Green lamps on keybd are lit during post/ extinguish when Win 7 PRO starts.

How to gain access to OS, and what to do once in?

Booting into F8 world is no help....same business.

Thanks

Use a kb/mouse USB/PS/2 adapter, if you don't have a working PS/2 kb (I assume you only have a single PS/2 port).
Then delete the kb and mouse from device manager and let Windows re-install the drivers.

HTH,

test first if it works ok when booted from a live cd, or bootable USB
here a nice live cd  : ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/knoppix-dvd/KNOPPIX_V7.0.5DVD-2012-12-21-EN.iso 

if it works in the bios -  and not in the os -  it looks like a driver problem
you can delete  - or update the driver then

**are you sure there' no malware on the pc?
scan it with the offline defender, or Kaspersky cd :

Tried scanning for malware and known good hardware. I find it is easier to reclaim a fresh image from an Acronis TIB file.  

Job done.

The emperor has new clothes.

Thanks everybody
