ADVENT LAPTOP - NO KEYBOARD, NO MOUSE

I know that I did something stupid and somehow managed to uninstall the keyboard and mouse. The keyboard was not printing but was functional in terms of using the mouse until I uninstalled it by mistake.

The cd rom is broken - I have tried to go into setup but cannot see anything about the keyboard or mouse.

What can I do? I have a recovery cd but cannot use it with broken cd rom. I have connected a usb cd rw but it is not seen in the setup files.

Any suggestions at all welcomed.

Even attaching an external mouse has not worked.

Are you able to use the keyboard before the OS loads up. An idea would be to boot up in safe mode. Not sure if it will work though.
