S

sunlei

after edit the system register by manual del some items, reboot the system,
windows can not boot up and show massage "the system file in
windows\system32\config missing or corrupt", let me use the xp
CD to repair.

use boot disk login to computer, copy all file from ~\windows\repair to
~\windows\system32\config
reboot the system, auto login to the administrator user account, but the
keyboard and USB mouse and the touch pad not working.

what show I do to make the system recognize the input device?

already try the safe mode and the lost good configuration, no work.

reboot with winxp cd

then select "repair" and
the recovery console will
launch.

then when you get to
the disk prompt,

run the commands>:

chkdsk /p
fixboot

then "exit"

----------------

you keyboard should
work when making
selections via the
win xp cd.

if not, check the
connections in the back
of computer.

maybe mouse is
connected into the
kb plug.

As I think you already know, given the above, but just to be sure:

Once you've recovered, you might want to look here, as well:

Are you using a USB keyboard and/or mouse? If so, is "USB Legacy
Support," or its equivalent, enabled in the motherboard's BIOS? Or,
have you tried a different (perhaps even a PS/2) keyboard/mouse?

You have been given excellent advice on how to go about fixing your issue.

Next time do not use any Registry Cleaning or Fixing tools. They are all snake oil
remedies as you have now found out

If your system doesn't recognise USB keyboards or devices, that's not a
Windows issue, it's a BIOS issue. Boot into the BIOS and look for
something like "enable legacy USB support". Alternately, borrow a PS/2
keyboard.
