    Hope for the positive reply.

    hi Nishant Desai !!

    check this file... /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    it has details of keyboard, mouse and other devices... look for keyboard and mouse in Input Devices' section. if you know the type and name of mouse and keyboard... modify this file accordingly....

    hi Nishant Desai !!

    this is a real problem... without working mouse and keyboard... nothing can be edited ...
    you should try other keyboard to edit xorg.conf and make necessary changes..... i think this is the only way...

    Dear Casper,

    Thanks for the reply, but my problem is Linux is also not detecting any of the keyboards, so i am not able to log in at anyways, and it is not detecting even the keyboard, lastly used by the person who has change the network settings, so it is the big concern for me, and another thing i want to ask is will it accept the USB keyboard, if i attach it while booting it up?
