no mouse or keypad

Please help asap, have done something stupid, for reasons that dont matter I was in msconfig-Boot-Aadvanced and I think I clicked on debug, anyway now my mouse and keypad (laptop Vista) do not work think I have upset a port and the problem occurred when the the PC was restarted.
How can I select Start without a pointing device to get back to misconfig and attempt to reset things? Or for that matter go to the command prompt without the mouse.
Fortunately I can talk to you via spare laptop at present.

Keyboard should work BEFORE windows starts to boot so:

Reboot the machine tap F8 and from the menu select Last Known Good Configuration.

Hopefully this will solve your problem.
