    So I restored windows (keep files)
    Because it was playing up. It's done all that perfectly but now I can't get past the login page as my keyboard and mouse don't work. I'm guessing the reset deleted drivers. I'm using a wireless mouse and keys. I tried a wired mouse but still nothing. I'm stuck! How do I get past this guys?

    I'm sure once I get past the login page the drivers will install and it'll work again.

    I'm using windows 10.

    Click on the power icon in the login screen, right click on Restart, this should allow you to reboot using Safe Mode. See if you can login into Safe Mode and then install your drivers.

    The TAB key can navigate to each element on the screen, don't know how to right click though

    Yes, but were they PS/2 connector ones? Something says to me that USB is not working.
