Looking for virtual keyboard/mouse driver (Game won't open if keyboard not detected)

Q: Looking for virtual keyboard/mouse driver (Game won't open if keyboard not detected)

Hey everyone! I just installed Star Wars Battlefront 2 on an Asus Vivotab 8 tablet running Windows 10 32 bit. It has a weird bug where the game will crash unless I have a keyboard plugged in through an otg cable or over bluetooth. Is there any way I could install a driver so it thinks I have a physical keyboard plugged in 24/7?

Also, if this is possible, is there anything similar I could install so it believes I have a mouse plugged in as well? Thanks!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)


Keyboard not detected, Mouse not detected. Fatal Error, System Halted.

That's what the system said, in DOS, on the black screen. Of course, I had my mouse and keyboard unplugged at the time, because I had just unplugged everything to move the computer.

Anyways, I plugged the keyboard and mouse in, restarted the computer, and everything started normally.

My question is, what is with this error? Vista can't boot up if I don't have a keyboard and mouse plugged in? It's not a big deal, but it seems like very odd behavior.

A:Keyboard not detected, Mouse not detected. Fatal Error, System Halted.

This has nothing to do with Vista whatsoever. As you said it showed up on the black screen with white text, which is the boot screen. The computer hasnt even started loading windows yet. The fatal eror occurs because you have no input device. The computer recognises this, and given that they are important, it puts a warning up that there is no connection.
It is completely normal, really, and whatever OS you have, its going to do the same thing.

since a recent windows 7 update when i power up my pc the keyboard and mouse are undetected so i cant get past the password screen. i thought a system restore is the solution but i cant get into bios either as i need to select that with the keyboard.

keyboard and mouse are usb.
ive tried all usb ports.

what do i do ???
all ideas, help appreciated as im totally confused about how to tackle this

ive been told by one person to try a keyboard with ps2 connection, i dont know anybody with 1
there must be another route i can take?
i dont even know what update has done this?

A:no keyboard or mouse detected after win 7 update

Reset your BIOS and then try restarting the computer. If USB support is a default value then it should boot, if not then you will need a PS/2 keyboard. What puzzles me is that no Windows Update can alter your settings in the machines BIOS - so perhaps it's just a question that your USB ports aren't working...

(As a preface, some of this has to do with me installing Linux on a different drive, but I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with the problem, which is with Windows 7 behavior, so please bear with me)

I recently bought another SSD in order to install Linux on it, so that my current SSD with Windows 7 will remain the same (so I can avoid partitions and stuff, and SSD space is scarce). I also have a separate bigger HDD with just data.

I can successfully install Linux Mint on the new SSD, but whenever the new SSD it's plugged in, Windows 7 won't detect my keyboard or mouse. I tried every available USB port to no avail. I can't even log in.

The thing is, if I then shutdown, remove my new SSD, then boot back into Win7, then both keyboard and mouse work (I'm in Win7 right now). It therefore does not seem to be a driver issue, since it worked previously and it still works with this hardware change. It's like windows detects that something is not as usual (the new SSD) and decides to ignore every hardware it can, to my despair.

I've been here four afternoons trying different permutations of installing linux, plugging drives in different places, and nothing. I don't know what to do anymore.

In case this is relevant: Right now I installed Linux on my SSD with the other two drives unplugged, then plugged them back in, and for now, I choose the OS to boot via BIOS (hold F8 and choose), no GRUB or anything yet. That will come later when Win7 works by itself with the new SSD plugged ... Read more

A:USB keyboard or mouse not detected when a new SSD is plugged in

Some additions:

I can boot into Linux and it works perfectly, both with the other drives plugged in and not, so it doesn't seem like a BIOS thing.
I reset the BIOS settings to default yesterday and it did not help unfortunately. It seems to be a Windows thing.
The system is not frozen at log in, I can see the textbox caret blinking and when I press the power button on the computer (just press, not hold) it detects it and shuts down properly. So it is not recognizing keyboard or mouse, it's not like it's frozen.

I hope I'm not wasting your time here, as I'm not positive this is a virus/malware/keylogger/whatever issue, but I came here knowing you're all knowledgeable in this and hoping you could at least cross this as an issue off the list. Recently I've had issues (I've actually only played Borderlands and Dragon Age: Origins to test this) with my input being lagged or delayed, not sure how to put it. Basically, if I'm standing still looking around, everything is fine, however, when I start moving my character, once I release the button (whether it be the movement keys or the mouse button while looking around) it carries on for anywhere from 1 to 10 seconds. I've tried many different game/performance things, such as Vsync and Mouse Smoothing etc. Anyways, I'm STILL waiting on the RootRepeal to finish (boy this has taken all day), but I'm hoping the DDS may lead to something while I wait. Thanks in advance.

Well yesterday I had left my computer on (logged in on Windows 7) and when i got back the computer was in a continuous boot sequence (starts to boot, then after about 4 seconds shuts down and then over and over again). I reset the power from the back and turned it back on and it started up but with a different boot screen (Dynamic Energy Saver Quad6 Screen lol) and not the "black" one that normally comes up. It happened again last night and I think it happens when I leave my computer logged on in Windows 7. The weird thing was that after I reset the power from the socket (which stopped the loop) and turned it back on, it had me still logged on as a user and everything was like it was before I had left (basically like hibernate, except that hibernate is disabled on my computer..)

Well anyway I managed to get rid of the "new" quad6 boot screen that kept coming up, and got my original "black" one up. I did this by fiddling around in BIOS with 1-2 settings which I can't remember at the moment. But I have noticed now after this incident my mouse and keyboard are not detected UNTIL the login screen comes up, which means I can't select the OS i want to boot (because i cant select it with keyboard so it automatically boots windows 7) nor can I boot in safe mode..

How can I resolve it so that mouse/keyboard is detected as soon as the computer is started, like it was before.

Help would be really appreciated!

A:Continuous boot loop + keyboard/mouse not detected before login

try reset the bios, disconnect the power cable/open the pc case/reset the cmos "jumper " usually handy to the battery. or remove the battery for a minute this usually changes the bios to default settings. peplace the battery and power up to the bios.to check the settings for the devices..

Looking for someone to assist an illiterate computer user!

I have a HUGE problem and am hoping someone will tell me it's NOT my motherboard and I'm just not computer savvy!

My computer was working fine (Win95). Hubby decided to turn it on and got a large static electric shock. The computer booted up just fine but when it got to the point where it was to load the desktop icons, taskbar, and such, all it did was load my wallpaper and display a "cute" little message. (Not so cute to me) The message said that windows was unable to detect a mouse. It also stated that I could turn the computer off to install a PS/2 mouse.

I checked the mouse connection and wire, they were fine. I rebooted thinking it was just a fluke. Same thing. I then decided I would reboot and try to enter the setup?(whatever it is called where you can choose to start in safe mode,ms-dos, create a bootlog etc) and maybe try safe mode or ms-dos. Upon rebooting and attempting to enter setup via F8 (this is the proper way to do it for my system), it acts as though it doesn't read the keyboard. Absolutely nothing happens.

When I power the computer on, the lights light up on the keyboard and promptly go out. Not even the numlock light stays lit. I have tried using various keys and combos to enter the setup to no avail. So it appears as though BOTH the keyboard and the mouse do not work on the computer any longer. (I am sure if/when I fix the mouse problem I will get a message saying the k... Read more

A:Mouse not detected/keyboard not functioning/unable to get to start menu

Hello Coplover.

Here's a couple of things to try. First try another keyboard if you have access to one. Next unplug the computer, remove the cover and clear the CMOS by either using the appropriate jumper or removing the battery for several hours. (It is best to find the jumper since it may take several days by just removing the battery.) While you have the cover off look for burned wires or places on the mobo. Also check all connections. If all else fails you might could get a USB keyboard and/or mouse to work. Hope this helps.

The screenshot of device manager is appended. I tried various other ways e.g. take out other USB devices, reboot etc. I tried sfc /scannow . But the error persists. There is no usb.inf file in the C:\Windows . It works in Windows 8 machine but not in windows 7. other 2.4 Ghz mice work. The manufacturer says that they don't provide the drivers because the mouse uses generic drivers
Please advise what can be done.

Is it possible to restore the registry thru DOS? Maybe System Restore thru DOS?

...oh god, please help!!!

A:help! wrong keyboard/mouse driver

XP doesn'r reallt have "DOS". To get to the command prompt and repair XP, do the following,

Starting System Restore Tool from Command Prompt

Start your computer to Safe Mode with Command Prompt.

NOTE: You must log on as the administrator or a user that has administrator rights.

At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER. System root is usually C:\WinNT

Follow the instructions on the screen to begin restoring your computer to a previous, functional state.

If that don't work, a second option is to use the original XP CD to boot to the repair console, if Safemode with command prompt is not available.

Boot to the XP cd, at the welcome window, select "R" to go to the Repair Console.

Select the OS partions, (usually 1) and enter your Admin password.

At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER. System root is usually C:\WinNT

Follow the directions. Hope this helpsl

A:USB Keyboard/Mouse Driver Problem

Hi fuwath, Fortunately I have fixed this problem alot lately lol. So your in luck. Now I'm not saying that it will necessarily be easy but since your using a Dell computer it might be. Heres how this problem has been resolved on your particular computer. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

1). Unplug the computer and disconnect all devices.

2). Press and hold power button for 10 seconds to drain the capacitor to prevent electrical shock.

3). Open computer case and locate the 3 pin jumper block (located next to the 4 SATA harddrive connection points on the motherboard). The jumper is blue and will be connected to two of the three pins on the motherboard.

4). Remove the jumper block for a second (apparently this clears the memory?) then reconnect it back to it's original postion.

5).Close it up and reboot and that should do it!

I will monitor this thread throughout the day. If you resolve this problem on your own or with the info I provided please let me know so I can move on to other issues. Also please mark this thread solved using the quick tools option located at the top of this thread.

Thank you

I recently updated my nvidia video drivers from an older version (which I cannot recall) to the newest, 178.24 version. I usually always uninstall an older version of my video drivers before installing a newer one, but I passed on it this once. I started to play Mass Effect, even though it was running fine, it had minor graphic glitches and cut-scene freezing, so I decided to uninstall the nvidia drivers, and reinstall the 178.24 version. So, as I was uninstalling, it asked me which components of the drivers I want to uninstall, so I believe I choose the first two, the video drivers and the ethernet drivers...i believe. It asked me to reboot, so I did, and after that, xp booted up fine, but now I have no keyboard and mouse input. The keyboard works totally fine in the bios and while the boot up, but it ceases to work the instant xp starts booting up...
So, I am stuck and don't know what to do...The issue also exists trying to Safe Mode...no keyboard/mouse.
There is this nvidia gpu ex option in my bios that is enabled, should I mess around with that?
Is there a way to install the 178.24 drives through (or whatever drivers I need, perhaps the ethernet one?) a boot cd through dos?

I am really avoiding a new windows install, if even that would work...

Any thoughts?

A:Mouse and Keyboard Touchpad Driver - ideapad 100-...

Hi afrojacksed  , 
Welcome to the Community Forums .
For missing drivers in Device Manager:
Most drivers uploaded from the support site are certified tested drivers by the manufacturer's engineers .
This doesn't limit users to customize their installation of operating system and likewise drivers .
Microsoft Windows 7 would also have its own native driver thru device manager update driver option. 
On device manager , update driver and browse my computer , let me pick  option for the generic driver. 
Just like having a custom built machine with a retail OS to get proper drivers you can use the hardware ID's and getting it directly from the manufacturer of the device .
Steps using hardware ID then searching it via google.
Checking on PCIDatabase for the manufacturer /vendor and related drivers.
For Hotkey specific buttons: 
Download and install this  . 
Check also on Hotkey if enabled on BIOS .
Turn off the pc and use the Novo Button (number 6 page 7) 
From the Novo menu choose BIOS set up. Configuration tab , hotkey switch. 
Then save and exit from the Exit Tab .
Update us how it goes.

I suspect it might be some sort of keylogger, but in general I am really confused by this weird behavior.

Recently I had been having some trouble with my keyboard. Some keys have simply stopped working altogether, and it seems to be registering the ctrl key as being pressed down at all time. Occasionally I could unplug the key board, put it back in, and it would work again, but only for an hour or two.

I resigned myself to using the on-screen keyboard, which worked as a temp fix while I ordered a replacement keyboard.

What's odd now, is that this morning, I have discovered that the on-screen keyboard no longer works. It is exactly mimicking the problems I had been having with my physical keyboard. I plugged that one back in, and sure enough, when the 'v' key didn't work on the hard keyboard, it didn't work on the on-screen keyboard either.

Strangely, the + sign works, even though it's the same key with shift pressed down. The keyboard works correctly on other 3 PCs that I've tested. These were running WInxp, 8.1 and the other one was also on updated Win 10. Does this make any sense? Do I have some sort of malware interrupting my key input?

I've had my desktop for a few years and never had a problem.  Just recently, it has started showing a Keyboard Error message on a black screen when I boot it up.  The wireless keyboard and mouse do not work, although it appears to boot up correctly.  Since I have a password on my computer, I cannot log in or do anything.  When this happens, I've rebooted 2-3 times, and it the keyboard and mouse will finally start working.  I have moved the toggle to different USB ports and this does not appear to make a difference.  How do I prevent this from happening?

I can't seem to find any info on that at all. Is that the actual model number of the keyboard? If you look on the underside it should tell you the exact name of the keyboard.

I am desperate. I just installed a new driver for USB ports and now my mouse and keyboard aren't responding. I have a feeling I am totally screwed here. I can boot up but can't move anything on the screen to go back to a restore point. Any advice?  
I am currently in full panic mode.
I should add that I can choose which windows XP operating system I can log onto (there are two). I can use the keyboard to move up and down between the two choices.  After that, no mouse, no keyboard response.  And no, it doesn't matter which Windows XP system I choose,,. still no mouse, no keyboard.  I already tried.

plug the mouse into a different usb port......try the ports on the front of the computer

In order to rectify a compatibility problem with my Logitech Optical Mouse/Keyboard with Hitman 2, an Eidos support site recommended that I should install Microsoft Intellimouse drivers to overcome the problems with Logitech's custom drivers (they were causing some pretty serious glitching in the game which I had just bought and wasn't willing to give up on)

So, I downloaded the latest version of the Intellimouse drivers. Now, I don't know computers intimately but I'm fairly computer literate so it didn't surprise me when a box came up saying "other mouse pointer drivers detected, uninstall? select yes to continue Intellimouse driver installation"

naturally, I thought that these Intellimouse drivers would be compatible with my mouse and I could therefore delete my current Logitech drivers and everything would be ok. So, after uninstalling it prompted me to reboot, which I did.

Upon rebooting it completed the Intellimouse driver install and came up with a "select your mouse" type list - now I decided that since there were no Logitech mice on the list I should select a mouse with similar functionality, the Wheel Mouse Optical (which I do actually have, on another computer) stupidly believing it would work. It prompted to reboot again, which I did.

Unfortunately when I reached the login page after rebooting I found that the mouse and keyboard failed to work. When I tried using my Wheel Man Optical and corresponding keyboard, they ... Read more

Per thread title, i installed the usb 3.0 driver from the asus website and now my mouse and keyboard wont connect. I tried plugging them into every usb port on my motherboard and it just wont work. I noticed beforehand (Before i tried installing any drivers) when i looked in device manager they were set up automatically as PS/2 ports which i thought was strange. I cannot log into windows at this time since my keyboard and mouse wont connect. I am able to use the keyboard and mouse in my bios though. Is there a way i can uninstall the driver i installed using command prompt without logging into the computer? The only fix i can think of is reinstalling windows but i wanted to check with the forum before doing so. Thanks in advance for the help.

I use the MS Wireless Keyboard 1000 and MS Wireless Optical Mouse 2000 with my HP HDX 16t (dual core) notebook running Windows 7 x64.

I installed both Intellipoint 7.0 and Intellitype 7.0. About 50% of the time when I boot, the mouse driver fails ("This device cannot start"). I have to manually uninstall the driver and then search for new devices. It re-installs the driver and then the mouse works fine.

Windows update had 3 recent files--update to Intellitype and to Intellipoint I think. Also a MS Mouse and Keyboard Detection Driver (USB), Driver ID = 20305405. It fails to install after many attempts. I've tried turning off all start-up programs without success. Error code 80070103. I think if this could get installed it would end my mouse driver problem. Any help?

A:MS Mouse & Keyboard Detection Driver (USB) fails instal

Try uninstalling Intellipoint and Intellitype. Reboot, and let Windows find the drivers automatically. You shouldn't even need those installed.

Yesterday I successfully wiped my computer and reinstalled windows. Everything seemed to be fine until I tried to install the INF driver. It did its thing and then said click next to continue. At this point I realized my mouse and keyboard didn't work. I restarted the computer and noticed that the mouse and keyboard glowed as if they were working until windows started up at which point they stopped glowing and I couldn't use them. Because of this I'm pretty sure I have access to the BIOS options but nothing else. Does anyone know what went wrong or how I can fix this problem? A speedy response would be greatly appreciated as I now have limited access to a computer.

A:lost control of mouse and keyboard after installing INF driver

Try last known configuration. Instructions can be found here.

If successful do a driver rollback for the device you unsuccessfully updated. Instructions found here.

My boss bought a new HP tower after our old one ran out of space. I plugged it in and everything worked until I realised the scanner didn't work. I downloaded a driver but it still didnt activate the scanner. So I looked at the driver repair discs that came with the tower. I installed that thinking it would repair the scanner driver and when I logged back in, the keyboard or mouse USB didnt work. I hope I didn't screw up anything. The keyboard works in BIOS. My boss doesn't know and I would like to get this repaired without bringing anyone in. HELP! Im on Windows 7.

Hi Guys,

I'm new to this forum.

Ok so i have been asked to make a unit (Touchscreen all in one unit) only accept the input of a keyboard and mouse, we are using windows 7 on the machine.
Before we had issues where our customers customers removing the mouse and keyboard and put there own devices in, such as flash drives, phone cables and suprisingly enough keyloggers.

So our customers requested that no other device to work in the usb ports but our USB keyboard and mouse, i have a feeling that keyloggers will still function even after this is done, well if this is even possible.

Any help will be appreciated.

Has  anyone installed the Microsoft keyboard and mouse drivers today?  I have Win 8.1  after starting up the computer today, I see I have one new security update, and two optional.  Neither the keyboard, or either of my two mice are Microsoft.  I am not sure whether to install them or not.  The security update keeps saying preparing to install, but it is taking much much longer than normal to install.  I decided to do it first, then ask about these other two.  I don't want to mess up my keyboard and mouse with an update not meant for their brand.  Thoughts please?

A:Microsoft keyboard and mouse driver updates today

The drivers are not specifically for a Microsoft mouse, it's aimed at a HID - compliant mouse.
A mouse is a plug and play device, unless it is a specialized gaming mouse you shouldn't need anything other than the native Windows driver in the operating system.  That is what the updated drivers for the mouse are.

i have windows vista 32 bit and proceeded to install the recommended drivers to use it via a charging USB cable. Immediately after the installation my mouse and keyboard became dead/unresponsive. you guys might also like to know that they both became dead while the setup displayed that it was performing the following task "creating kernel" or something like that. Immediately after that phase finished all was lost. The keyboard and mouse are detected by bios, and key presses to get me in and around the bios and initiate safe mode work fine. At the moment i am checking to see that the hole I/O plate on my mobo arent dead, and also no response from USB's on the front either. Power is being supplied to these as my red laser light and keyboard lights flash when they are plugged in and out.

i have been routing round on th einternet to see if this little gem has happened to anyone else on earth...clearly it hasnt.

thank you for youre help, even if my desktop is dead.

A:Dead Keyboard and Mouse Immediately after installing PS3 PC controller driver

Why not use system restore to roll back your system to before you tried to install the PS3 controller drivers? It's pretty obvious that something went wrong with the install. I haven't looked lately but last time I checked there were no offical PS3 controller drivers. The one that is floating around is a hacked driver and results may vary. The Xbox 360 controller does have an offical driver from Microsoft.
