My mouse and keyboard aren't working

Specs: Windows XP
my desktop computer's been having a bit of virus trouble lately and today the mouse and keyboard just stopped working. They work fine on my laptop but nothing doing on the other computer. It turns on fine and loads the user login screen but of course, with no mouse or keyboard I just can't do anything. I was wondering just what the hell I'm supposed to do here.

When I turn it on, it occasionally goes to the black startup menu screen and informs me that my keyboard isn't working... but then it tells me to press F1 to continue. Which is just.... not helpful.

Are these devices wireless USB?

No, fully wired USB. It's actually working right now, but my dad could very well have done something. It would still be nice to know what I could do to prevent this happening again though.
