My computer desktop kept freezing today, had to reset to get computer to restart. Computer wouldn't boot Windows (the computer got to the Windows load screen, but wouldn't complete loading). Tried to do a Windows Repair Installation using Windows XP Home Installation CD for existing Windows installation.
Install begins correctly but about 60% through, the installation asks for an NVIDIA file (nv4_mini.sys) and the mouse and keyboard freeze. From this point, I am unable to browse for the file, cancel, or anything else. Neither keyboard nor mouse respond. It seems to be knocking out all devices.
Last week, I had a problem with computer viruses which I removed with AVG and Malware Bytes, and then installed SystemSuite10. Started having problems again with system 2 days ago with system freezing.
Any ideas how to repair without having to completely reformat the HD, or at least how to get keyboard and mouse back on board?
