    That is the worst post I've seen in a few months. I've got a guide in my signature to help you out.

    Boot up in safe mode and choose a restore point from when it last worked.

    Edit: Holy crap, in the time it took me to write a reply you posted 3 more times. You've done almost everything wrong that you could have done wrong as far as posting etiquette and post content. Please read the guide in my signature before exposing us to any more of your posts.

    Yes. Now come on dude, I know you are concerned, but you continue to violate the guidelines. Think about your posts before making them, and if you need to ask another question, edit your post if nobody has replied inbetween.

    You probably dorked up your system with whatever system files you screwed with to put a custom theme on. Hopefully a system restore will go back to before you screwed it up. If not, and you didn't break anything physically (or not connect properly) then you'll have to do a repair of XP. We've got a guide on that at the top of this forum.

    But there is also a chance you broke or didn't connect something when you were messing around inside the case.

    Are you getting any video at all when you initially turn it on? I had a hard time figuring out exactly what was going on in that mess above.

    Not sure there is a way around that then without a different keyboard. Is your current keyboard wireless?

    Try the keyboard you are using now.

    It may be a driver for that peice of software that is causing your problem. You may have to create a boot disk in order to log on and fix the problem.
