The USB ports work only in Bios. I have tried booting in safe mode and with a normal boot, i just get stuck at the password screen.
How do i deal with this problem if i have do not have a ps2 mouse port on my motherboard?

My other problem is that all my data is on a striped raid configuration and probably not that easy to access otherwise i'd pull the hd and retreive the info. Most of my data has been backed up, but i do have some work data that i need.

Thanks for any help.

Yup it is enabled and yes it is strange .
I think its a windows update to blame "That's a Shocker !"
Still leaves me up the creek though

Picking up a USB mouse would be a better option. In many cases, I have seen those adapters not work properly. When they are plugged in, the mouse is simply never detected. If you don't need anything fancy, a basic USB mouse may actually be cheaper to buy as well.

Haha... wow, I totally misread the thread. My apologies.

I'm assuming your keyboard is also USB? If so, does it work while you're in the BIOS? If not, have you considered opening the case and either shorting out the BIOS reset jumpers or removing the CMOS battery for a few minutes to allow the BIOS settings to reset themselves? The defaults in the BIOS should allow the keyboard and mouse to work.

Hi,

So were you able to resolve the issue?

I'm having the exact same problem, wherein the USB Mouse, and USB Keyboard work in the BIOS, but not once Windows boots.

Please let me know of how you got past this.

Regards,

Ajay
