|How did you manage to type this up???|
Unless you used different laptop :)
WORM.BLASTER refers to the one which pops up a window
saying "Computer shutting down in .... count down seconds"
Anyway, what OS have you got installed?!
The keyboard and mouse ... are they via PS/2 or USB connected!?
if via PS/2 then try via USB (need keyboard or mouse with USB connector tho)
