  1. Check the BIOS to make sure your interface (USB or PS2) is enabled.

    yes I try Safe mode with command prompt and still with the same problem. No I do not have a XP disk. I have a question for you, there is any way to created a boot disks that can run the windows recovery file directly from DOS. Because key board and mouse worked went the computer is on DOS or AV Scan Boot Disk.
  5. You can try creating a bootable DOS disc. Then you can try accessing the drive. If you have restore points enabled, you can try running the system restore from the DOS prompt.

    You could also make a Linux Ubuntu disc.
