I have used this keyboard/mouse combo for years with no issues. I unplugged both to use elsewhere for a few days. The computer remained on for the entire duration that they were disconnected, sitting on the Windows 7 desktop. When I reconnected them, neither seemed to correctly send their input to the computer. No characters were typed, and the cursor did not move. I rebooted by pressing the reset button on the case (pretty much cuts power and reboots) and the BIOS, Grub2, and Ubuntu all worked perfectly with it. The keyboard and mouse are separate, wired, USB devices. Any thoughts?
Edit: I have read this question and I cannot use RDP to connect and reinstall the USB drivers. When I try, RDP hangs on "Initiating remote connection..."
