    Unable to use keyboard in WinRE


    I recently started having "KERNEL MODE HEAP CORRUPTION" bluescreens (after I login) after installing the latest update, so I tried to fix it by uninstalling the latest Quality Update through WinRE.

    But the problem still persists.

    Then when I tried to enter WinRE the second time, I'm completely unable to use my keyboard at all (I currently don't have a functional mouse).

    The keyboard works fine before, and it still works in the login screen, but it simply doesn't work in the WinRE menu.

    Any help will really be appreciated!!

    :)

  2. Laptop keyboard and mouse not working

    Hi,

    Since you are unable to use the keyboard and mouse, we suggest doing a system restore through Windows 10 Recovery Environment (WinRe). Follow the steps below and see if it helps:


    • Start your desktop, and after the manufacturers logo disappears and Windows 10 tries to boot, press and hold the power button for 5-10 seconds to perform a hard shut down.

    • Do the step #1 until you see the Windows logo screen or Please wait during boot. (You may need to perform this up to 3 times.)

    • After Windows 10 boots into the Windows 10 Recovery Environment (WinRE), you can now access Startup Recovery, Safe Mode, and Command Prompt.

    • Go to Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > System Restore, and then check if you have a restore point.

    • In the list of available restore points, choose the date prior to the issue. Steps can be found in this article on
      how to perform a System Restore. Refer to Restore from a system restore point.

    Looking forward to your response.
