Here are the key details:
- Dell Latitude E6530
- NVIDIA NVS 5200m with Optimus
- Hera 5.1.4
What is happening: My keyboard and mouse stop working when the desktop loads. I can use the input devices in the BIOS and in the recovery terminal. Prior to this issue, the laptop worked perfectly. I could play Steam games, browse the web, use the terminal, etc.
When it started: I updated my driver to nvidia’s 435 driver, and in the next reboot my keyboard, trackpad, USB mouse and USB keyboard are entirely unresponsive.
What I’ve tried:
- Purging and reinstalling the old driver
- Switching the selected graphics card in
- Quietly sneaking up on my laptop while wearing a wig and fake mustache and quickly booting it before it recognizes me
Any suggestions as to what is going on, and how I can fix it?
