ASUS x555la laptop. Keyboard not working. Touchpad not working. Wireless keyboard and mouse combo not working. Wired USB keyboard and mouse not working. I want to save data off laptop but Help!! Ordered a Sata to USB cable but does anyone know of bios or other boot up options to reset hardware and keep data?

First check to make sure your motherboard is not bad if so many things are not working, try booting off a Linux Live disk, you can try both a USB one and a DVD to see if either boot. Then you can test the USB ports on the system to see if it's a hardware issue or software.

You will not find an option in the BIOS to re-install Windows, you either need to use the recovery partition options or boot off a setup disk.

Thanks. I have copied all files. Boot up responds to f2 into Bios but nothing else. I am happy to reformat and reinstall but don’t see option from Bios.
