USB Mouse & Keyboard Don't Work

As the title says, when I plug in my USB mouse and keyboard they do not work at all. My laptop's keyboard and trackpad work just fine. Has anyone else came across this issue before? When I boot into windows they work just fine.

OS: Garuda Linux x86_64
Kernel: 5.10.14-119-tkg-bmq
Packages: 1694 (pacman)
Shell: fish
Resolution: 1920x1080
Terminal: terminator
CPU: Intel i5-8250U (8) @ 3.4GHz
Memory: 8998MiB / 31993MiB (28%)

Have you just updated the kernel but haven't rebooted yet? If so, reboot.

Otherwise, try booting with them connected and see if that makes a difference.

Then, try updating your system and rebooting.

Then, try another kernel.


Restarting with USB devices connected worked! Thank you!

It's more of a workaround than a fix, but at least we know the devices themselves work correctly.
