How can I get my keyboard working again so that I can restore my computer so it will begin to work?

Q: When I turn on my computer this message appears “windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt \windows\system32\config\system

you can attempt to repair this file by starting windows setup using the the original setup CD-ROM
select “r” at the first screen to start repair.”

Also before this screen another message appears that says that no Keyboard was found. I tried restoring my computer with the restore CDs but I need the keyboard to select things to start repair. Any ideas of how to fix this problem?

    Most system restore CDs will not allow you to do the repair option. To repair, you’ll need what’s called a Windows installation disc. You might be able to get one from your computer’s manufacturer, borrow one from a friend, etc.

    If the keyboard does not work using the Windows installation disc, then something is wrong with either the keyboard port in your computer, or the keyboard itself. Does your keyboard connect to your computer using USB?

    I look forward to assisting you.
