Default Re: mouse will not work, help please!

I've never run into this before, where neither ps2 or USB will work no matter what port I try. The fresh install gets all the way to the "adjusting visuals" prompt. All other prompts I had to use the keyboard..

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
You can definitely navigate the whole way through an XP install with just a keyboard.

Use tab and space to select and activate buttons.
Maybe tomorrow I'll wanna settle down, until tomorrow I'll just keep moving on...
