Hello

My computer crashed and I did reinstall win xp home. As i was updating it with the windows service pack 2 the computer crashed again. This time though it reboots but goes to a screen that says to start in safe mode or normal. Now here is whats wrong the wireless keyboard does not allow me to to use the keys . I also have tried a non-wireless key board and still can not use the keys. So how do I get around needing to hit a key to either reinstall win xp or fix win xp without having the use of a keyboard?

If you can access the BIOS...I suggest going into the BIOS and ensuring that the default settings are engaged. This should set the system up to use a non-wireless keyboard and you should be able to take it from there.

I can not get into BIOS. This is so frustrating. Ok so anything I could try.

If it's a desktop...you can remove the CR2032 battery which is attached. Doing this also sets the default boot settings in the CMOS.
