Hello,

I recently installed sp3 and it was running fine for about a day or two. However, recently I reset my computer and got the message:

\windows\system32\config\system file is missing or corrupt and I should restart and press R to go into recovery mode.

I re-booted, and found out that my keyboard no longer works so I cannot press any keys. I tried different USB ports and also tried to attach it directly using the older style connection (forgot whats its called). I also tried a different keyboard.

The light that turns on signaling the keyboard is working is not lit so I am not able to enter recovery mode.

Here are my system specs:

-AMD Sempron 64 3500+, 2GIG DDR2 667 RAM, WD 160 HDD

Any suggestions on what to do?

Thanks!

hello,

try to repair your windows registry files either by using the windows cd itself or try to repair the registry using a program such as regfix..

hope it helps you
