Keyboard and touchpad frozen after rollback to Windows 7 from Windows 10

G56
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

After deciding to rollback from Windows 10 to Windows 7, the keyboard and touchpad don't respond. Used my Windows 7 System Repair disk to boot up, ran Repair but it didn't find anything wrong.

Uninstall drivers from device manager and scan for hardware changes. This will install latest drivers which were compaitable with windows 7. Hope this helps 🙂

Part of my problem is I can't even log in to Windows. When it boots up, the keyboard and touchpad won't do anything, so I can't even enter a password to try and log in.

 

If I boot from the System Repair disk, the keyboard and touchpad work, so I know it's not a hardware problem. All of my System Restore points are gone (I assume they got wiped during the Win 10 update?). System Repair says it can't find anything wrong. I can use a Command Prompt, so I could if necessary get to the Windows root folder. I'd rather not use the nuclear option and do a factory-default System Recovery.

Forgot to mention that I tried booting in Safe Mode(s) with no luck. Keyboard and touchpad won't let you log in to Windows. Only time keyboard works is in BIOS or when booting from System Repair disk.
