Keyboard and mouse not working.

  Trixflip 13:50 26 Feb 2018

I was playing a game when suddenly my pc crashed. After the reboot my keyboard en mouse stopped working.

My mouse and keyboard however do work in BIOS en they both give a light when I start the pc.

So far I have tried : - rebooting the pc - tried all My usb ports - booting in safemode (My keyboard and mouse dont work in safemode) - And changing usb settings.

I also looked at My Motherboard and all seems fine. However I am not a computer expert. Any help would me much apprreciated :)

What type of keyboard and mouse ?

Wired USB wireless from a dongle in a USB port?

type device manager into your search box , look if their is a yellow triangle next to the keyboard and mouse entry , if their is , right click and choose uninstall driver , now restart pc and windows will give you a generic driver..... do you use driver software for mouse and keyboard , lots of them work just as plug and play items.

Press Left Alt+Left Shift+Num Lock on your keyboard at the same time to get a dialog box similar to the example shown below. Windows Mouse Keys

When the window appears, press Spacebar or Enter to say Yes. Repeat this process to turn Mouse Keys off.
