Mouse & keyboard not working
« on: April 03, 2015, 07:52:35 pm »
So, I just rebooted because Steam wouldn't open.

Now another problem has occurred. When I get to my login screen, neither my keyboard or mouse is functional. Not sure what happened.
Both devices work fine in the bootloader when selecting operating system, so they're not dead.

And I can't CTRL+ALT+F1, so...

What happened maaaan?
I got 99 problems right now and this seems so silly, but I can't do anything without this fixed >:(((

Sorry for bothering you guys with so many questions, but I guess I screwed something else up.

EDIT: Changing USB port doesn't work, motherboard has no PS/2 port. Mouse is not lit up nor is the laser.

Hi. What hardware is it? First I thought that it's Xorg capturing and loosing input capabilities, but if the mouse doesn't lit up, then it seems that USB gets disabled. Did you do any kernel updates recently? Other than that similar issues tend to happen on Gigabyte motherboards? Maybe it's your case also?
There isn't a single thing that's impossible. Just the things that we don't yet know how to deal with. ;)

I'm using an ASUS motherboard, so that ain't it. I don't recall doing any updates either.

I guess I'm gonna have to do a clean install.
