In theory if the machine boots and you can get to the Start Menu, then you rarely need any keyboard input, if such an option is available.
However if you have a password on the machine, this isn't going to be possible.

New keyboards cost peanuts these days.

unless you're talking about actually using recovery console or doing a factory restore through the boot up sequence....neither of those usually accepts mouse input
