Just this morning, I went to go turn on my PC. Then I noticed both my PS2 mouse & keyboard were not working. After 10 reboots, and making sure the PS2 mouse & keyboard were plugged in tight. It still does not wok. It works in Windows Recovery, but not Windows itself. BTW: I am using the on-screen keyboard for this, and my brothers USB mouse.

I first, went into the Device Manager, expanded the Keyboard section, and clicked Uninstall on the Standard PS/2 Keyboard, and I did the same for my Standard PS/2 Mouse. Then, while the computer was still running, I unplugged both PS/2 mouse and keyboard. Then I shut down the PC, while off, I reinserted both mouse and keyboard, then upon entering the Logon screen, both mouse and keyboard worked again. That is all I remember and can say.

Yes that is pretty much the standard procedure.

Another approach is to disable (not delete) the components in question in Device Manager, and then to re-start the computer. Unplugging is not necessary. Upon restart, the computer will 'find' the devices and install them.
