Please help!

My computer crashed while playing Pharoah so I did a hard reboot and when it got to the XP login page my ps2 keyboard wouldn't work. Tried rebooting a few times with no luck. Went and bought a new USB keyboard but had the same problem. The key board works fine until the login page, i.e. del works to get into bios and the F8 boot key works but the numlock light goes off just as it gets to the login. I have tried unplugging the usb keyboard and plugging it back in but still doesn't work. I enabled the USB legacy in bios but still no luck.

I'm thinking it must be a corrupted windows driver but as I can't use the keyboard I have absolutely no way of getting in to windows to do anything about it.

Please help!!

Think I've solved my own problem - usb keyboard is now working after running a system repair with XP CD. However keyboard wasn't working immediately on last login but I did notice that the hard disk was still active so I left it for 10-15 seconds and hey presto the keyboard worked. I am very suspicious that after trying just about everything else for 3 1/2 hours, it may have been a case of patience and allowing enough time for windows to recognise and install the usd keyboard.

I have noticed several others on the forums with the same problem - try this solution - it may jsut work!!

Cheers
Eddie
