Need help to enter in Safe Mode

Hello,
I have to enter in Windows 2000 in Safe Mode,
because I have to make a removal procedure
for a virus.

The big problem is that I cannot enter in Safe Mode,
because, after I choose the "safe mode" option
with arrows, when I see the (login-password) window,
the keyboard doesn't work, so I cannot logon.

I tried an other thing: I set my entering in
Win2000 with no password, but when I enter
in safe mode, I only see a black screen with
"safe mode" at the 4 sides of the screen, but
I don't see my desktop.

What can I make to bypass this problem?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks, Alex.
