Windows 10: keyboard / mouse not working Solved

    keyboard / mouse not working


    Hi - I have messed up the keyboard and mouse drivers on my Windows 10 installation, so now when I boot up I have no input possibilities. What are my options?
    I don't have a "recovery" disk - but I do have a Windows 10 install USB.
    I don't have any restore points.
    I have tried restarting many times - with and without the keyboard and mouse attached.
    How can I "reset" the input drivers?
    Thanks.

    I found a way to solve this issue, by disconnecting my keyboard and mouse, and connecting a different keyboard and mouse. This seems to have caused Windows to try to find the correct the drivers, and overwrite the incorrect ones I had installed. (Simply moving my old keyboard and mouse to different USB ports did not help).

    You said after using a different keyboard and mouse, the issue is solved.

    Does that mean you can now use your old set of keyboard and mouse and there is no problem anymore ?

    Yes, the new keyboard and mouse caused Windows to find and install new drivers so they worked; and then afterwards, the old keyboard and mouse also worked again when I plugged them in.

    Such a novel way to solve the problem.
