If you can't get a keyboard to work, I don't see how you are going to navigate within the BIOS setup screens to change the boot order to have any chance that the computer will go into Windows install repair mode.

Sounds like a job for the computer repair guy.

It's just power being connected -- same on my desktop when I switch the wall socket on, it doesn't tell you anything except that the keyboard is connected.

@pumpkinslion thanks for the personal message but I'm afraid that from your description the computer has a hardware problem-- it may be a hard disk issue, thus it gets as far as the BIOS starting screen but stops there.

However, if the rest of the system was working you would be able to enter the BIOS -- I assume you have tried pressing the appropriate F key to enter the BIOS but nothing happens.

In case it's faulty memory, look to see if there are two memory modules and remove one and see if that helps. If it does not, remove the second memory module and replace the first. Try again.

If it's not memory then it may be the motherboard. So you need help from a repair guy to confirm that and replace it if needed.

The keyboard and mouse seem secondary issues and not all that relevant, but of course I could be wrong.
