Hey guys, having a bit of an odd problem here. i just plugged an old keyboard and mouse into my old comp (that as of yesterday, worked perfectly) in order to reformat the computer. however, once i got to the point in booting where i am asked to press f1 to continue or del to enter the bio, i realized that neither my mouse or keyboard had powered on, and therefor i could not get past this screen. I now cant get past this screen because no keyboard will work. what the hell is happening :(  please help haha
