Accidentally Rendered PC Unusable While Trying To Fix USB Ports!

SAT01

So I feel like an idiot. I've been having issues with my USB ports, and so I downloaded a newer version of my USB drivers - but off of a different site - and installed them. Now, when I boot into Windows, my keyboard and mouse no longer work.

 

PLEASE HELP!!!

Boot in safe mode and uninstall the drivers.

I can't boot into safe mode though : ( I need to be able to use the keyboard, I think.

There's a very low level driver used by BIOS and during Windows pre-boot that's like baked into the system firmware, your keyboard should still work before the bad driver loads, start mashing the F keys right after the BIOS screen and you ought to be able to get to safe mode.
