    Default Problems with controls (I think)

    Hello everyone,
    recently I have formatted my windows 10 Dell notebook because I had too much things in it and I felt like it just needed that. Everything's fine until I decide to play pokemon gba games. I've downloaded VBA emulator from this website and started playing the hack rom New Emerald pretty normally.

    After a few days not playing, I went back to continue playing and now it doesn't work, what I mean is, when I start the game, NONE of the controls I've set up on my keyboard works and WHILE the game is running I can't set up new controls. So I decided to use another emulator, I downloaded BizHawk and no$gba and the SAME EXACTLY problem ocurred and I also tested lots of other hack roms and vanilla ones on both emulators too and none of them work. I tried to play on my PC and it worked perfectly fine, I tried searching the internet and couldn't get any solution, I hope you guys can help me.

    Did you try mgba ?

    Did you run it as administrator

    Did you test your gamepad

    And update your drivers for it

    Did you disable pointing devices ?

    Did you check out that you dont have problems with directx.

    Did you update directx ?

    Directx use both audio and video output and gamepads.

    Like this :

    https://technicalustad.com/directx-d...ol-windows-10/

    Because im think that you cant use both in windows 10.

    And maybe you have problem with directx and drivers.

    I am playing on my keyboard

    And I've just updated everything I could with Windows Update and yet nothing works.

    Ok, so I just grabbed a USB controller of one of my friends and I can perfectly play the games in ALL emulators with it, but the keyboard doesn't work on the emulators, I can't even set up controls with my keyboard but the controller works fine.

    It seems that your keybord is broken.

    If you have replacement try keybord on ps2.

    Of course if you erlier use keybord on usb.

    Its either problem with hadware or drivers.

    On your windows version.

    The thing is, before I open the ROM with the emulator, the keyboard works perfectly, but after I open any ROM it stops working
