    I got this PC from my cousin, it's supposed to go to my gran as she's using an ancient one. This one's not the newest either but would be a huge improvement.

    It's a Packard Bell IMEDIA 2669

    It came faulty though. It had Windows MCE on it and the Keyboard and Mouse wouldn't work. It would boot to my cousin's login screen but K+M didn't work regardless of being plugged in via ps/2 or USB (at the back).

    I've now got them working via USB at the front. There's only 2 USB's at the front though. So I installed a PCI card. And now there's 4 at the back. The 4 at the back (PCI card) work fine in windows but u can't get in to the BIOS with it. The keyboard has to be in the front to enter the BIOS.

    Anyway, the plan was to install Windows 7 on it as it should be capable. 2gb ram, Pentium D 3ghz. So Windows 7 home was purchased for it.

    When trying to install windows 7 home, the K+M stop working quite early on, where you are asked to choose your language.

    I've been googling this a lot and one suggestion was a faulty PSU and to check voltages, 5v,12v and 3.3v (something like that). They were all within 10% so that doesn't seem to be the problem.

    I should also let you know, one of the 4 original USB ports on the back (the motherboard ones) seems to have samage to it. Like part of it's been pulled out. I haven't tested the ethernet, spdif and another connector but both the PS/2 and USB on the back are faulty.

    Ideally I'd want to get the ports at the back working, but I'd make do with just installing Windows 7. Just not sure how to go about it. I've heard about being able to install with USB but how do I do that with the disc?

    Is there anything I should try? I've reset the BIOS, and I even tried taking the motherboard battery out for a minute.

    Just to be clear, the 2 USB ports at the front work, the 4 I added at the back work. The 4 originals at the back dont and the ps/2 don't. The 2 at the front are the only ones that can access the Bios. And none seem to work during the Windows 7 installation.

    Cheers for reading and please respond with ideas/suggestions, even if it's a long shot.
