Hi,
i did a reset on my Win10 PC, keeping all the files, but now neither keyboard nor mouse are being detected and im stuck on login screen. (Keyboard works fine in BIOS)

I already did some troubleshooting since there are some posts about this topic, but so far nothing worked:
-Disabled USB legacy mode (pretty old Mainboard so i dont have many options regarding USB)
-Connected the Pc via Lan and waited for the drivers to install on their own
(i unfortunately do not own a ps2 keyboard)

I understand that one option would be to install a fresh Version of Windows via an ISO but is there any way for me to access my data after that?

Does someone know how to fix this??
Thank you!!

sound like the reset remove the driver for the old hardware.
If you need the data on it. I don't recommend installing fresh os on the same disk.
get another hdd/ssd and install windows on that.
and i could somehow fix the drivers on the current windows via that new windows install? if so, how would i do that?

For anyone interested:
I just ended up buying a cheap ps2 keyboard, with that I was able to log in and download the needed drivers off the MB manufacturer's site, after installing them the problem was solved.
Thank you @rgd1101 for your posts!!
