so my music recording PC just decided today that it doesn't want to boot windows XP so I consulted the net and discovered that by hitting F8 I can get in to start windows in safe mode or use the last good configuration, I hit F8 when it brings up the menu however i'm unable to select any of the choices from the menu because my arrow keys for whatever reason will not work. Any ideas? I need to get this fixed.

will the tab key allow you to cycle through the choices? also try the space bar

could also try the arrow keys on the number keypad over to the right, like on keys 2, 4, 6, and 8

sounds like it might be fixable after a chkdsk /f
