Question about PC Desktops
It has three solutions, the middle is to not save and return to windows, but the keyboard has no response. I can get to the blue screen by del at start, but don^t know what to do.
If your computer has the older ps2 keyboard connection as well as the usbbuy or borrow a ps2 keyboard (small round plug goes into back of computer) and reboot.. some computers do not provide usb support for the keyboard until the machine has loaded windows so a usb keyboard wont work when you need it to on boot-up.. you will be able to use the ps2 keyboard to select the options your machine is offering you (probably after a bad windows crash?)

Keyboard is not connected properly
Verify that the keyboard is connected properly to the computer by turning off your computer and then disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard to the computer.
Ensure that there are no stuck keys on the keyboard.
If all keys appear to be ok and you have a standard desktop computer with keyboard, turn the keyboard over and gently hit the back of the keyboard to loosen any dirt or hair that may be stuck in the keyboard.
Try another keyboard on the computer to verify that the keyboard has not gone bad.
Bad PS/2 or AT port
If all of the above solutions are not able to resolve your issue it is likely that the port on the back of the computer may be bad and the motherboard or I/O board may need to be replaced.
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
make sure that your RAM modules and Cmos battery are securely seated
on some motherboards Cmos batteries are soldered in
Test all power and data leads that attach from motherboard to your hard drive IDE SATA
make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
if its a flat 40 pin ide it will be the first to fail
check the graphics card is seated properly with no dust in the socket you might have to remove it to check for dust reinstall it
restart your computer the found new hardware wizard should activate
a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and to its continue its cycle and to have and end to function.
hope this helps
