I am trying to repair a corrupt registry using the process described in the Microsoft Knowledge Base article 307545. (click here) I have gone through step one and Windows XP now starts again. However, I can't log in as the keyboard no longer functions.
How do I get it active again so that I can continue with the fix?
I'm not sure what stopped the keyboard working, but after using the virtual (on screen) keyboard in accessories I was able to complete the repair of my corrupt registry in Safe Mode, after which the keyboard became active again. Nornal service has been restored!
