The GUI started working well for sometimes , then I switched off the PC for 2 days and when i tried to re-open it ,
The mouse and keyboard are not working at all
when I switch to the terminal mode on booting , the keyboard is working well but on using
The GUI opens without sensing any mouse movements or any keyboards presses
What do you think ?
