If you "reinstalled" Windows 10 from inside Windows 10, it's called a "reset". I'm curious how you know "the keyboard/mouse drivers were deleted". Regardless of what drivers were deleted, when Windows boots, it should load the mouse and keyboard drivers if they are connected. Does the keyboard and/or mouse work outside of windows? If so, can you boot into Safe Mode? I have never had a good experience with a reset, best to do a clean install https://forums.tomshardware.com/faq/how-to-do-a-clean-installation-of-windows-10.3170366/ . . Hopefully you have backed up your data. If not, and your keyboard mouse works out side windows, here are some ways to save many of your files (#6) is especially useful). https://www.intowindows.com/ways-to-recover-data-when-windows-10-pc-wont-boot/

Did you use a new Installer?

Are you using wired mouse/keyboard?

have you tried rear connections on PC?
I don't know what I used I just reinstalled windows that's all I know.

I am using a wired keyboard/mouse.

I have tried all connections on PC. I believe the problem is that when I uninstalled Windows and later reinstalled it, the keyboard/mouse drivers were deleted so they don't get recognised when I connect them. Even though my keyboard lights up when I connect it.
