Keyboard and mouse does not work at the login


Hi, I have a ubuntu loaded in KDE and this is in dual boot with Windows vista. I was "upgrading" my Linux (through update manager) when my computer just shut down. And when i restarted the computer to login to the Linux all I got was blank screen. I logged into recovery mode and selected the option to fix the packages. I rebooted my system and then again logged into the Linux. This time I could get the login screen but my mouse as well as Keyboard was not recognized. Essentially i cannot type or scroll and cannot login into Linux.

Please help.

From the log-in screen do <CTL>+<ALT>+<F2> to get a terminal. Log-in and

Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-input-evdev
then reboot and try again.

Thanks a lot for your reply. But <CTL>+<ALT>+<F2> is also not functioning. I still see the login screen and cant type anything.
