I have an Ubuntu 11.04 desktop, and my USB keyboard stopped working all of sudden. I tried rebooting, swapping USB port, swapping keyboard, VNC into it, but nothing helped. I dont have PS2 port on the computer either. Now my computer is stuck at the log in screen, and I can't put in a password because the keyboard doesn't work. I need to access data on the hard drive of the computer. What should I try? If I connect the (ubuntu) hard drive to a windows desktop, will the windows desktop be able to access the information? Or will the hard drive be ruined?
