When i boot up my keyboard and mouse freeze before i enter XP User & Password and i have to maually turn off computer and i can do the same process a couple of times before it boots up correctly, what might be the cause?

corrupt XP drive files for the mouse etc.

try a repair

type sfc /scannow

in the run box XP will scan for and replace missing or corrupt files.

Yep I would say a Driver problem. You need to check the event viewer

This driver needs updating but i never got a driver disc when purchasing computer tried ati.com and Nvidia but dont know what im looking for

The driver is for the Motherboard, So you need to find what motherboard model that it is, then visit the Manufacturers site for drivers.

i just tried to do that operation but the black box because dissapears as quickly as it loads. Would i have to close all apps to follow the command

It could also be a PCI card, that as been fitted into a slot that upgrades the MOBO to more specifications like SATA, Card Reader, etc
