Mouse and Keyboard stopped working

Running XP SP2. The mouse and keyboard stopped working. Keyboard is PS2 and
Mouse is USB. I tried different USB ports with no success. The computer
starts and is running but I can not see the XP log on screen because the flat
screen is in energy save mode and says move mouse or touch keyboard to return
to normal mode. I plugged the flat screen into my lap top in it is working ok
so the problem is not the flat screen. The keyboard lights for about 1 to 2
seconds when I cut on the computer but then the lights go out and keyboard is
not working. Any suggestions on how to fix.

Thanks for all replies.

Perhaps your USB controller has had it. Does the keyboard work when you go
into the BIOS?

Pegasus,
The Keyboard is PS2 and when I cut the computer on the keyboard lights come
on for about one second and then go off and the keyboard does not work so I
can not get into the bios.

If you cannot get into the BIOS then this is not a Windows but a hardware
problem. Your keyboard, PS/2 port or BIOS might be defective. I suggest you
try a different keyboard and repost your question in a hardware newsgroup.
