I recently just reinstalled XP, got all the windows updates and went in the device manager

Posted Image

And the video controller is unknown. So I went to Nvidia and downloaded a file named 175.16_geforce_winxp_32bit_english_whql and installed the drivers for my Nvidia Geforce 7300 GT. It asks me to reboot and I press yes. So it reboots, goes to the windows xp screen, waits about 30 seconds on a black screen, and then I'm at the login screen. The screen goes to 1440 x 900 (which is maximum resolution for my widescreen, It was 1024 x 768 before) and my mouse and keyboard (which are plugged in 2 usb ports) stop working. But pressing the button that shuts down the computer still works.

Any help?

System restore? I formatted the whole thing today and reinstalled xp (and I had this problem before the format but I still don't know what's wrong). I did system restore to before the 175.16_geforce_winxp_32bit_english_whql drivers were installed though.

I don't know if it's the usb drivers or the BIOS that has the problem. If this picture helps this is the bios of my graphics card.

I want to be able to use a mouse to get off the login screen and actually login.


EDIT: Sorry about the double attachment

The ps/2 mouse and keyboard works and I can login. But my usb is still disabled/corrupt. What can I do?

Edit: It takes more than 5 minutes for anything connected in the usb to work and it goes SLOW.

The USB only works if I go into safe mode. I installed the usb 2.0 drivers I had from an old disk but that still didn't work.
