Windows 7: How to restore when keyboard does not respond?

How to restore when keyboard does not respond?

Hi,

I have created a dual boot with Windows 7 as the computers "native" OS together with openSUSE 12.2. It worked fine yesterday directly after the installation. Today the keyboard does not respond. Not even "Esc". Mouse pad do work.

My idea is to start over by restoring the Windows 7 part, but how can I do that when the keyboard does not work? I just end up in Linux login screen. As "Esc" does not work I can't even reach BIOS. As the arrow keys does not work I can't switch to Windows during the startup.

All ideas are welcome.

Does the keyboard work in Linux? If not, assuming its a USB keyboard, try a different USB port.

Regards,
