NO mouse or Keyboard to click with!!

By rg ·
installed a new G card. Nvidia 9600 (un installed old driver first as per, fitted card, booted.

at reboot (XP Sp2)found new hardware window pops as expected but PC has not enabled mouse or KB. Mouse can normally move at blue welcome window, even though it shows power via usb it will not move at that stage or after pc fully started. KB as well. Shortcuts (ie volume open email etc on KB work but keys themselves do not . Have also connected a PS2 mouse and KB. but still not working.. Have F8 and used all options ie best known etc.) so always frozen at found new hardware..but nothing to click OK with to install.?? any ideas welcome.
thx Richard

mm chipset? usb drivers..

ok it gets deeper. so i can use the pc i reinstalled windows in another file on the same hd and on the same pc.. all works fine so i recon it is a software problem.
I do not know enough to be able to try this but bet it would work. if i knew which files to copy over from the working copy of windows to the one not working (ie all the drivers and config type files this might cure it? the only file i can think of is the syst 32 folder.. any ideas or will copying that over just completely **** the original copy of windows apart?
