have so much info on my comp that i need so a reformat
is not a option. i went to use my ipod for the first time so
i plug it in after installing the software and notice that it said
if i used usb 2.0 it would be faster so i unplug my mouse from the back
and switch them and my mouse freezes. so usin the keyboard i restarted
than i notice my keyboard and my mouse both dont work. they keyboard
works right until the windows xp logo appears. i can hit num lock and such
before that logo and it will light up. but once the logo appears i lose all functions
and my computer is just basically froze there. please please someone have
some sort of fix for this.

Others have told me to reboot with f8 and so safe mode but i still dont gain
function of my mouse or keyboard. ive tried bouth usb and ps2 keyboards.
and still no function. id really appreciate any help possible

Keep your computer off. Plug your keyboard and mouse how they were before they screwed up. Make sure everything is plugged in right and correctly. Turn on your computer, and wait for everything on your computer to load. Log in your account if you have to, but if it just goes right into your account let everything load. And if Windows is working right it should set up eveyrthing by itself.

And for future reference just keep your iPod plugged into the normal USB port, trust me it works fine, it's what my brother does.

if your os and hardware supports usb2 then all your usb ports will be usb2 so not sure what you were doing. USB ports dont like to be switched around, some devices get comfortable with a particular usb port and dont like any new device being plugged into them, one of my front ones is set to work with my camera, now it wont let me plug a game pad into it, very tempermental.
