USB mouse and keyboard don't work XP

By Nate711 ·
After installing drivers for my gigabyte motherboard the USB mouse and keyboard failed. I tried a ps2 keyboard and it does work. When I shut down using task manager it gives me the blue screen of death right before it turns off. After it turns off it immediately turns on again. Before I installed the drivers the mouse and keyboard worked fine. Help is much appreciated.

1) Look at device Manager. See what the problem is with USB or keyboard/mouse devices. Double-click the device and choose to have Windows search for drivers.

2) Turn off Reboot on Failure - this will allow you to see the BSOD message. Make note of the message, and tell us what it is (error number & text).

My Computer → Properties → Advanced → Startup and Recovery settings → un-check Automatically Restart.
