If you only have this problem in Windows but in the bios everything is ok then search your registry for the entries Upper Filters and Lower Filters and delete them.

I am no expert about how it should look inside the bios. But this how look like:

the first one is the CD Room drive thee is no + befor it

the next one is the Floppy Drives befor the next says the Floppy Drives thee is a +
The next one is the Hard Drive ST94011A there is also + befor. the læast one is Realtek Boot Agent

I dont understand what you mean with search the registry for the entries Upper Filters and Lower Filters and delete them?

Explained for a registry newbie?

Concerning the bios I don't know exactly what you mean, but I guess that you entered it with F2 or DEL and found the screen with the built-in drives.
I don't know your bios so I can't tell you what the plus signs are for. But maybe the missing plus sign next to your DVD-drive is the reason for your problem. Try to activate the plus sign.
You should find a short description how to alter items on the border of your screen or by pressing F1 while standing on the entry with the cursor.

To search the registry go to Start -> Run -> type regedit -> and hit ENTER. Then the registry editor will come up.
Press F3 and search for Lower Filters and Upper Filters (also try without spaces). If you find any items delete them and reboot your notebook.

If you couldn't delete the entries try to do in in safe mode. This should work.

Concerning your mouse I think that you accidentally deleted an entry that you better shouldn't have deleted. Please go to the control panel and search for new hardware. If your mouse isn't detected go to the device manager and check if there are any question marks or exclamation marks.

Press TAB twice. First it will go to the shutdown entry in the bottom left corner and the to the user icon. Then press ENTER.

You can navigate the same way in Windows windows (ugly name ;-) ), (de)activate checkboxes and other input elements with SPACE and confirm inputs with ENTER.

Yes, Tab is the key wih the two arrows above caps lock.

I mean this screen:
[removed link due to image change; once showed winXP login screen]

In this example the first Tab will set the focus on "Turn off Kitchen computer" the second one will set it on "Sarah". Then press Enter.

It doesn't matter how many accounts you have. The image I linked is just an example.
If you see your version of this screen press Tab two times and then press Enter. This should either log you in or ask you for your password.

If this doesn't work please write exactly what you did and what doesn't work! I have no crystal ball.
