Tried to repair Windows XP-keyboard failure...

  klw777 11:41 25 May 2007


I am not totally proficient on computers but I am at a sufficient level so bear with me

I repaired my laptop using a Windows XP disc, all seemed to be going fine, however I can now only get as far as the page with my three user account names on it when my keyboard freezes!

Up until then the mouse moves around fine and I can enter safe mode but again only to the same point. I can log on as a guest (only requires a mouse click , not a password entry) but again it freezes as soon as I try to use my keyboard once logged on?

Hope someone can help :S

Still sounds like corrupt windows software

Do the repair install again.
Try in the guest account
OPTION 1 - Repair XP by replacing corrupt files

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.
