Default BIOS VS WINDOWS! Please help!

Good afternoon ladies and gents I really hope someone can help me out as I am out of ideas myself.

I will post the specs below but essentially,
My computer has worked fine with all USB wireless keyboards and even a perix touch pad for over a year on windows 7.
I recently downloaded the windows 8 update only to find that the perix pad now no longer seemed to work.

I bought myself a lovely new b.unlimited M85-26000 wireless rechargeable keyboard and mouse by a company called cherry hoping this would solve the issue however the keyboard and mouse work perfectly in bios but nothing happens at all when windows 8 loads.

I have tried every single USB port on my computer, with legacy turned on and off, the motherboard bios was updated just before the windows 8 install, the keyboard itself comes with no specific documentation or driver cd.

Please help me get this resolved!

Comp spec is

COOLERMASTER ELITE 310 BLUE CASE
Intel® CoreTMi5-2500 Quad Core (3.30GHz, 6MB Cache) + HD Graphics

Does it work in safe mode? If so, install the latest motherboard chipset drivers and reboot.

Microsoft shows it as compatible, but also says "download required". Not sure if that means it needs an updated driver?

Here is the page for the Windows 8 drivers for it:

See if that works.
