Use the Windows computer without a keyboard or mouse

Recommended Posts

:woot: All this information is good, but useless if you can't get into the computer in the first place..

Had a friend that had this happen. The computer came on, but mouse and keyboard was not usable,

I told him to replace both with his spares..... he did, but with the same results. So how can one get to the

system restore without a keyboard and mouse? Don't tell me to start in safe mode, can't do that without a

keyboard.. And he didn't have the system repair disks..

Any suggestions?

Every PC user should create and keep a system repair disk handy! Another tip for just this kind of situation is to set and leave your first boot option in the BIOS to CD rom. This way, whenever you need to boot from a system repair disk or spyware removal disk, Windows will boot from the inserted CD without any keyboard input. However, I must admit that I still don't know how you would select a repair option from the menu without a keyboard or mouse? Note to self: it might be a good idea to research this in case it happens to me one day B)

 

OK. I have instantly researched this problem and the best solution I have found is if you have aPS/2 port on your PC, try plugging in a PS/2 mouse and see if that works. If it does, you can then press F8 or whichever function key your PC uses to access repair options and the usethe PS/2 mouse to select a repair option. If you do not have a PS/2 port on your PC, these can be obtained for next to nothing on eBay or can be purchased from a local PC store if it is needed urgently. Then you would have to install the new PS/2 card, plug in your PS/2 mouse and press F8 or whatever to access your repair options :)
