Well recently ive started my computer, and once windows loads, it tells me it cannot detect my PS/2 mouse. I restart, unplug and replug the mouse, and then one boot, i hear one beep before even the BIOS Loads and then my computer is endlessly trying to start with no avail. I cannot load Windows, and since my mouse and keyboard ports are connected, windows cannot recognize the keyboard either. So I am really backed into a corner hear. Then I look under the hood, and guess what i realize, MY MOuse and keyboard conections are sealed off under my HardDrive tray. Basically I am screwed, but I was wondering if one of you very nice people could help me. I think the ports may be damadged. BY the way this is quite an old system we are talking abnout here, before ATA cases and motherboards.
