Windows 64-bit 7 ultimate

Evening everyone..I didnt want you to think I just up and dissapeared and took your advice and suggestions and turn into an ungratful so and so.. I am currently using a very limited P3 1.1ghz 256 meg ram to update you..My GOD we are so spoiled...From Floppies to Zips to CDs to DVDs to Blu Rays..We have come a long way..You cant imagine how slow this is O_O...

Anyway 1 prob at a time please :/...First it was an issue with the HDD, then the keyboard and mother board suggestions..Id love to test everything and see whats really the deal..This CPU I purchased was back in June '10..Not even a year old..I am in upmost denial everything decides to fail on me at once...

But first things first..Currently with my Main and starting issue, my 500g HDD..Currently I am running a program called "Spinrite 6.0"..It claims it is locating and repairing((or trying to)) repair and recovery the datas on the partition(..My Current goal is to make at LEAST the B, and C drive bootable so I can copy the data and if need be format the drive and start fresh IF the drive is still..usable...Someone suggested use the seagate tool and I will do that...However the person who gave me the program stated it could take DAYS or even a week for this program to finish...It was running for 12 hours straight and was at 19%...Sadly Power got interupted and I recently had to start all over.

So...I will let u Guys know how well this program works and if it does what my Original post was concerning and that was to revive my main 500g HDD..

My main and 2nd issue in the mean time, is trying to understand why any MS.DOS related program((Bios, pre boot, even the spinrite program)) Kills off the usage of any keyboard PS2 or USB..I tested it out and the Bios doesnt freeze as the time still ticks..Just it stops the keyboard from working..

Even when trying to select advance options when pre loading Windows 7(( select repiar mode, safe mode, last known config)) it can also die there if im not fast enough when selecting my options.

When win 7 loads everything and i mean everything is fine, keyboard, mice, video card, mem, HDD..

SO!..Any ideas on how to correct that issue? I even went as far as going into the Bios and selecting "load opimized defaults" and still kills off usage to the KB ..

Again I thank everyone and my replies may be slow as this isnt my CPU I can freely use..But I specifcally came online just for you guys -_-.

Thank you again.
