I'm struggling with my Dell desktop which only has USB ports (no PS2). At BIOS level the keyboard and mouse work. Once Windows loads, nothing.

I've reset the BIOS to defaults, checked connenctions, tried other keyboards/mice, and tried all ports. No joy. The only thing that makes sense is the USB drivers are corrupt. How can I uninstall the USB drivers using Recovery Console or Knoppix or ...? Any thoughts?

He has no mouse or keyboard, how is he going to do that?

What happens if you boot to Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot? If that works then you can try the following:

Ignore the part that says DO NOT uninstall your mouse if you are using a USB mouse, just do that last.

Reboot your computer. In XP you can press Windows key then U then R to shutdown and restart.
