MacBook Air

External Keyboard and Mouse Won't Work in Recovery Mode

The built in keyboard and trackpad on my 2017 Macbook Air were damaged by liquid and do not work. Luckily I can boot the machine to the login screen where I can plug in an external keyboard and mouse (USB-C), both of which work. The problem is I cannot remember my password, so I have to boot to recovery mode to reset it. When I get to the recovery screen my external mouse and keyboard no longer work. Any thoughts on why this would be the case or any alternative solutions would be greatly appreciated.
