You're welcome. We're always glad to help.

Do you have access to another computer of a family member or friend?
As long as you have the lapotop's Service Tag #, you should be able to download the driver(s) to a CD, SD card, or USB stick in order to transfer them (in Safemode if that works) to the problem laptop. Once transferred to the laptop (perhaps in Safemode) double click on each driver file to see if they will install. After installation, reboot normally.

Do you have your original XP installation disc? We're talking about something obsolete, so you are at a disadvantage for getting all components to work.
 I cant get the keyboard or touch pad to work to even get to the website to try the process. the laptop will come on load and I can move around a little, then boom it freezes and I can't move around anymore.

Didn't work says corrupted . then it froze.
Have you tried reinstalling the keyboard and USB drivers for your model Dell? Once the computer sees the mouse, it should find the drivers for it.
Check with Dell's Driver Downloads page:

Current News / Who will own the data from your autonomous car?

Who owns your car?

Assuming its paid off, you might think you do. Its your responsibility to maintain it. If something breaks, you have to pay to fix it. If you hit somebody or something with it, youre liable for the damage.

But the data you generate in your autonomous car of the future? Apparently not so much. If you expect the US Congress to protect your personal privacy, including ownership and control of those data, as the nation moves into the era of autonomous vehicles (AV), you need to temper your expectations.

Legislation is in the works in both houses of Congress to regulate AVs, although the House is ahead of the Senate the Committee on Energy and Commerce released the text a couple of weeks ago of a proposed bill titled the SELF DRIVE Act.
