I have two problems here and they need to solved one at a time. The first is, as i was upgrading to the latest distro of ubuntu 11.04, i decided to leave it installing over night. The next morning it is completely locked up and i can't move the mouse or type anything.
I reboot, and i am given the options between normal boot, recovery mode, previous versions etc etc.
The keyboard input method does not work. My motherboard does not have that oldfasioned connection that always works with bios, only usb, so i can't control the bios or any of the startup process because i can only use a USB keyboard with this pc.
The operating system won't boot because it wants me to choose an option on the screen, and unlike windows, it will not count down from 20seconds before automatically selecting the first option.
Any ideas? Try to ignore the fact that it crashed on me while upgrading, lets solve the bios control problem first
