Hi,
Go into the Bios utility and enable all the USB controllers, then save the changes, exit the bios. The computer will restart, plug the keyboard into another USB port and let the computer boot up, wait about 5 minutes before trying to use the keyboard because the drivers maybe trying to install themselves.
If you get no luck you will need a standard PS/2 keyboard, connect that and boot your machine, log into your account and install the drivers for the USB keyboard.



Good luck.

SATELLITE U205 ....IS ITPOSSIBLE TO BOOT FROM AN EXTERNAL USB DVD DRIVE


Shut your computer down and remove the power cord.

Replace the power cord and press the "Power" button to restart it.


Watch the screen carefully for a message about computer setup.

Most computers use one of the function keys, which are aligned across the top of the keyboard, to access the computer's setup utility, but each manufacturer uses a different key.


For instance, HP computers generally use the F1 or F10 keys, while many Dell computers use the F12 key.


Press the appropriate function key to enter the computer's setup program, then scroll through the list of options until you see "Boot Order."


The exact location of the boot order option varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but it is often located under the Advanced menu.


Highlight the "USB Devices" option and press the up arrow key until that device is first on the boot order list.


This will force the computer to look at the external DVD drive first when it boots up.


Use the "Esc" key to exit the setup menu. Choose the "Save settings and exit" option and allow the computer to reboot.

It will now boot from the external DVD drive.


Hope this helps

It sounds as though you might have a problem with BIOS.
You should remove your motherboard battery (little round silver disc) and if you can find (or Google motherboard model#) the CMOS reset jumper, you can remove the battery for 30 seconds and put it back in and reset the CMOS, then see if it boots. If it doesn't, you might need to flash the BIOS, which is not recommended unless you know what you are doing.

It sounds like the motherboard is messed up. if it ever lets you enter windows fully, then do a bios update and driver download for you chipset. if it NEVER lets you enter, take it to someone who can hook it up to their machine to see if it's the motherboard or an incompatibe device.
