Will a new mouse and new keyboard work after Destructive System Recovery?

By SAHillage ·
Someone asked me to do a Destructive System recovery on their computer (Windows XP Home), but last year she replaced the old mouse and keyboard. When and how should I install the CD-Roms for the mouse and keyboard after the system recovery? Or will they still work?

Please Help

There have been times when I was supplied with drivers when I bought a keyboard/mouse package. But Windows always beat me to it, so I've never bothered (not even 'just to see').
