Sort of a long process, but try this, First, unplug the power cable, press the power button. Don't plug the unit in yet. Since you were cleaning the fan, I assumes you had the unit open. Pull out any ram, pressing on the tabs at each end of the ram slot. Take a #2 pencil, and "erase" the contacts, on both sides. This cleans them. Disconnect all your hard drives, Cdroms, USB devices. Just plug in the power, and monitor and fire up the machine. Give it a few min, since it has to redetect all the hardware. IF it goes past post, shut down, and plug in one device at a time. Good luck, let us know what happens.

OK do you want to setup your computer with windows operating system.
Try ; when you see the american megatrend press del or delete do enter the bios setup.
if your in the " bios setup utility" press the " right arrow' of your keyboard to " boot" tab, ant then; down to "boot device priority" then enter. see the 1st,2nd, 3rd boot device, in there select "CD/DVD" boot then press + sign until CD/DVD is in 1st boot. and the press "F10" to save and exit. computer reboot.

If see the " press any key to boot from CD/DVD" (something like that) strike any key and then wait. you are on your way just follow the instruction.

    i think a boot disk nothing to do in your keyboard and mouse, however if the windows installation is fresh, maybe it needs driver on it.
    Otherwise; Windows re installation in necessary if your are sure that mouse and keyboard connection is securely fixed.

    other option:

    Try USB mouse and keyboard , so that you can backup important files of your PC.

Computer freezed on american megatrends how do i get out of it?

american megatrends is the producer of the BIOS. Your only hope is to do a hard rest of it: open the pc and remove for 5 minutes the big silver cell battery. If even after that you can't fix it then the motherboard is dead, replace it.
