The Vanguard is an Anti-cheat system for Valorant, developed by Riot Games. After installing the game here comes a problem where Vanguard disables your mouse and keyboard input.
We will be going to a quick fix for this problem
Go to Windows Safe Mode
Two ways to solve disabled Keyboard and Mouse
1. Fast Method
Now you are in safe mode your keyboard and mouse should work. In This method, you have to download software that will fix your registry keys that are causing the problem which was modified by Vanguard.

Restart your PC again to enable the Vanguard to play Valorant.
2. Advanced Method

If you follow this process the same then restart your computer. After that, your peripherals should be working fine and it should be able to fix the problem with Valorant disabled keyboard and mouse.
