One day my computer was working fine, the next my keyboard and mouse don't work. They do, however, work in BIOS. I tried playing with USB settings in BIOS and it didn't affect anything. I also tried restoring to defaults: no effect. There's only one thing I can think of that *may* have had something to do with all of this. A day or two prior to the issue I attempted to make my PS3 controller work with the computer by installing a program called MotioninJoy and when that didn't work, DS3 Tool. The night before the problem I uninstalled some programs associated with my PS3 effort, and the computer continued to function normally through the night.
The next morning I fired up the computer and the mouse/keyboard were not responsive. In addition, the computer seems to be unable to connect to the wired network I have set up. Any ideas or suggestions that might help me solve this?
EDIT: Running the PC in safe mode, the same problem exists
