Default Dead Bestec power supply in Compaq Presario SR2037X

After removing the Bestec ATX-250-12z Rev D2R (HP P/N: *5188-2622*)and
replacing it with a Antec 350 the system boots. Unfortunately I have no
working PS2 Keyboard or Mouse. Hangs at the Compaq screen for just over
20 seconds.

I have changed the non working input devices for usb 2.0 units and now
have mouse and keyboard and can boot with a Live Linux cd, but trying to
boot winXP I am getting the could not start Ntoskrnl.exe file is missing
or corrupt error.

Looking about with my friend Google Search I find this website...

http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000646.htm

Since I have no mouse or keyboard with USB in a windows boot could not
use the WnXP CD boot to extract the file to system32...

I have copied the file from a working windows, and then added it using
Kdiskfree mounting the NTFS drive... But still show as a missing file,
and I can not get into the Bios (no working keyboard), to determine if I
could turn off the PS2 ports, to get passed the over voltage PS2 errors.

Next step, will a PCI USB card with the keyboard and mouse work for
entering Bios? Think Not... But am not certain...

Am at a bit confused on the next Windows step to try, might there be a
suggestion, I have already looked on ebay, and there are no similar
motherboards for less than $80 including shipping.

Guess I will install a Mepis 8 Linux operating system, since it boots
with the USB devices, after noting there is a over voltage problem with
ports 7 & 8... I am not certain how long this system will last or if
this is the first step in a total motherboard failure...

I am going to switch hard drives and do a Linux installation and see if
it will survive for a bit... this is a speedy Linux system, except for
the initial logo screen hanging half a minute...

If someone has a workable Windows suggestion, that way i still have
original the WinXP hard drive for future boot attempts.

Latest update...

My local computer shop has a E3300 & BioStar motherboard on sale for
$40, so if they still have some stock this evening I will acquire one of
these combos along with 1GB of pc 800 (2x512MB) memory sticks, and a $30
Sata hard drive...

With Taxes, less than $120 for a computer more useful & faster than a
nettop. I will recycled the case, use the existing 18x DVD burner, and
the replacement 350 watt power supply...

This system should be purring later tonight or early tomorrow with Linux
and the new components...
