In desperate need of some help for my Dell PC running windows XP. I recently decided to update my game controller so went into control panel to remove my old Saitek Cyborg rumble pad. It proceeded to remove all the drivers but came up with an error at 99% and windows froze (sorry, cant remember what the error message said). I tried removing the pad from the USB port but due to the mass of jumbled cables i pulled the mouse out 1st (possibly the root of my problem). Anyhow, after plugging them all back in windows was still frozen so I had to hard reset. After booting up again the mouse and keyboard would not work. Windows proceeded to find new hardware for Dell USB mouse/keyboard etc but after each one it also finds new 'USB Human Interface Device' and an 'add new hardware wizard' opens up for the USB HID. I cant get beyond this point as the mouse/keyboard are still inactive so im unable to make any selections. Without use of a mouse im completely at a loss what to do? Im able to get into BIOS setup and make selections with the keyboard but once windows loads up the mouse and keyboard stop working and the install new hardware wizard opens up for a USB Human Interface device.

Seems like ive knocked out the USB drivers?? Heeelp
