Install or reinstall the input drivers:
Open a terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T and copy paste following command and press Enter.
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-all
If it is already installed, then purge and reinstall it:
sudo apt-get --purge autoremove xserver-xorg-input-all && sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-all
Mouse and keyboard don't work in graphical mode of Ubuntu Unity.
sudo apt-get purge xserver-xorg sudo apt-get autoremove
If you work in recovery mode you probably haven't dns to fix it:
echo nameserver 126.96.36.199 >> /etc/resolv.conf sudo apt-get install xorg sudo apt install gdm
Choose gdm-light or gdm3. Both are working.
