Hey. Well lemme tell you how it all started. I was downloading World Of Warcraft when my brother asked me if he could use my mouse. I let him and when he gave it back to me and i plugged it in, it didn't work. So I restarted my comuter and it still didn't work. I shut the computer down unplugged everything and when i plugged it back in, nothing was working. The mouse was lit up but it didn't work. THe monitor didn't work. The keyboard didn't work. So now i'm thinking this might be a virus but how do i fix a virus when i can't get on my computer??? Please help! I don't wanna buy a new computer.

Does the computer turn on with the mouse unplugged? Any pins bent on th mouse or now on the keyboard? I doubt its a virus, there are very few viruses that affect hardware and most of those are older ones that I haven't seen in many years.

Oh, and if its a PS2, round type connector mouse, then you have to plug or unplug it only when the computer is powered off; never when on.

No, it'll just clear the BIOS settings. The data on your hard drive will not be affected.
