    My OS is Windows 10. My PC is an Averatec All-in-one. Both the mouse and keyboard came with the PC. Its pretty old but it still does what I need it to. Okay. Let's get this straight from the start. What I did was stupid. Okay now to the problem. I woke up this morning and started my computer. It started up just fine but when I tried to put in my password on the login page my wireless keyboard would not behave properly. I hit shift and It would print out a long string of capital L And so l tried putting in New batteries. And after that the keyboard would not work at all. So I tried rebooting. And still it wouldn't work. So I decided to go to settings then to, Bluetooth and other devices, once there I clicked on what I thought was my keyboard it said: USB RF Combo Device. Here comes the stupid part. It gave me the option to remove it. And so I did it. Now my wireless mouse won't work either. Thank God that I have an older mouse for backup and thank Windows for having an On-screen keyboard. I looked in the Device manager but I couldn't find them. Why did I do this? Because I was thinking that removing them, and reinstalling the keyboard would make my keyboard work. Well I can't figure out how to reinstall them. If any one could help me it would be greatly appreciated.

    Just do a system restore to a date prior to you messing with it.
    Control panel>System and security>System>System protection>System restore

    This will fix your wireless mouse however your keyboard may have failed. Since the keyboard was giving you problems prior to removing anything, it makes me think there may be an issue with the wireless keyboard.

    Thank you so much. I followed your instructions and I have my mouse back. I will have to go and get a new keyboard, because it still didn't work. My poor little keyboard. Anyway, thanks again.
