    Hi, try a system restore from Command Prompt?
    Re-start the pc and tap F8 as the pc is starting up.
    When you reach the Windows Advanced Options window.
    Select - Safe Mode with Command Prompt.
    Press Enter
    At the command prompt window
    Type:
    %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
    Press Enter.
    Choose a date prior to your problem.

    Entering safe mode or safe mode with command prompt would not by itself, have disabled your mouse and keyboard.
    Restart your pc again while tapping F8 - this time select safe mode, what appears on your screen and are you able to use the mouse and keyboard?

    Run system restore while in safe mode.
    Start > Settings > Control Panel > System
    Select System Restore.
    Restore to a date before you had the problem.

    It is not starting up and entering safe mode?

    You cannot restore it from using F10
    Without the install Cd you are limited to what you can do.
    If you can borrow a Win Xp install Cd - you can check the disk for errors, run system file checker and try a repair install.
