I attempted to speed up my computer by removing some programs from operating upon startup. However, I must have stopped the keyboard from operating. Now, the computer (a Dell m600 laptop) starts fine; however, once I press any key on the key board, the computer freezes up. How can I get back into the startup configuration without using the keyboard or any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You can try to reverse what you have done by running System Restore and choosing a date just before the changes you made. In your case you may have to boot into Safe mode with command prompt by hitting the F8 button once a second while your computer boots, and then select Safe mode with command prompt when prompted.

Then type:


and press Enter.

Choose a date from before this problem began.

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!

You could also try rebooting the computer tap f8 and select last known good configuration.
