i get a keyboard error at bootup on a dell inspiron desktop using windows 7. it boots automatically into recovery mode, prompting a choice of booting up normally or beginning the recovery process. but i have no keyboard functionality to make a selection with. pulled CMOS, but that only prompts you to strike f1 or f2 to enter start up. i even tried a bootup cd as a last ditch effort.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
if i were to install a PS2 PCI card or even an old serial PCI card and get an old serial mouse, would that give me a working keyboard in windows 7?
