The easy answer would be to just use my front USB ports.
or you could use the back ones, most mice will work OK via a hub ( USB hub non powered, will be OK) available for a pound or a dollar or so .
Here's a recent link to the sort of thing I have in mind
The keyboard is best directly plugged into a USB port and not via a hub....( but some do work OK that way!)
Wwhen you start up your machine you may see on the screen a line of text....... something like:
press F12 to enter "Set Up"
or it may be F2 or Del, or Esc...( various computer manufacturers have different key strokes...) and you may need to check your computer or motherboard handbook/manual for the exact keystroke.... However all of them require you to start hitting the appropriate key stoke IMMEDIATELY you power on (dont wait for any part of Windows to start loading as the BIOS operates before Windows even starts to load....)
Once you are in the BIOS tread very carefullyDO NOT alter anything just to see what might happen!
only alter the setting to provide legacy support for PS2...... you will have to dig around to find it.....
If you mess up at all then exit the BIOS without saving the changes Repeat without saving...... this will enable you to try again later.....
You have to be accurate and precise in the BIOS... never guess only act on certainty...... putting in an incorrect setting could stop your machine from booting up!
Once you alter the correct setting then exit the BIOS with saving the changes, and your computer will/should reboot!

I have the same question. If the keyboard isn't functioning I can't use the ways you suggested to start BIOS. Is there a way to start BIOS without a keyboard? Maybe I'm just missing something - not the first time. Thanks.
