Invalid Activation - Can't use mouse or keykoard RRS feed

  • Question

  • My computer stopped working and comes up with a screen saying "The windows vista home basic product key you typed is invalid for activation"  and gives me 3 options.  Use the automated phone system, Access you computer with reduced functionality, or type a different product key.  However, the keyboard and mouse don't work so I can't choose any of those options.  The keyboard works fine in the boot menu's etc... but when Windows starts everything stops working and I am stuck on the invalid key screen.  Does anyone know a way to get past this screen so I can run the diagnostic?
