Loss of cursor, keyboard etc & boot issues.

Q: Loss of cursor, keyboard etc & boot issues.

I apologise for the verbose post but I assume detail will help. I apologise in advance but I need a fix for my pc and the working time window can be minutes so most was rapidly typed with no thought for editing. spelling or grammar.  Skip to the big problem, if you want, as that is the issue right now.[BACKGROUND - SKIP IF YOU WISH] ]I have a HP Pavillion dv7 notebook and the OS has been nothing but trouble since I made the mistake of buying the thing in November 2011. As always, sod's law proves itself correct yet again my computer takes the moment I'm broke to start having issues plus I'd rather wait for the next generation of Intel processors are out before buying a new one and hoped Broadwell by the replacement time. [PROBLEM 1] The dv7, sorry no model number as the "esc + function" trick does nothing, worked perfectly for all of 9 hours, after Windows Update ran it crashed. I'd erased the display account "Kiosk" but it still comes up as the primary account, my account was inaccessable - neither username nor password were accepted but I'd set up fingerprint access and could access my account that way. If I try to add guest or other accounts they don't show up when loading, only in the relevant section of "Control Panel" but "Kiosk" isn't listed there. It is still listed under OS (C:) > Users. This means that I can't use safe mode, although I haven't needed to until now but is currently an issue. I left it like that as it would make it slightly harder for thieves and the nosy. Also, I planned on adding a SSD drive and I figured there was no point resetting it to factory settings twice, especially after I'd just reinstalled much of my software and essential files. It took longer than expected to buy an SSD but I have one now but haven't gotten around to installation. Linux distros with repair tools like dealing with forgotten passwords don't work and actually saved me from encrypting the whole drive, just important, private and a lot of random useless files made to look important or important for snoopers. I didn't really care about this issue until I couldn't access safe mode. [PROBLEM 2 - possibly resolved or perhaps a contributing factor to current issues] About a couple of months ago I downloaded a video off of youtube using either of the Firefox add-ons "Download Helper" or "Youtube Video and Audio Downloader," installed Google's cloud program that must've crashed as I can't find it on my computer, then uploaded the file online so I could rip to mp3 using a website. The mp3 plays fine and without issues. I thought I had a virus as deleting the mp4s was difficult & I accidentally downloaded twice. COM surrogate would suddenly eat all my resouces when starting up and I'd have to end the process if they were clicked on or accessed, it also occurred if any mp4 was opened, the folder they were contained in or certain media players were opened. One copy I made the mistake of sending to recycle bin and explorer would hand and eat my resources until the explorer process had to be terminated. The other copy was removable using Delete Doctor. I finally got rid of the one in Recycle Bin by emptying it indirectly and without opening it. I assumed I had a virus but MalwareBytes, ESET's online scanner, Microsoft Security Essentials, AVG, changed to Avast and then ESET's free trial, McAfee security scan plus and AVG's bootable disc say I'm clean. Once the files were deleted the issues stopped but I still won't do online banking on the computer. [PROBLEM 3 - the serious one] The initial symptom was loss of sound. The program's sound level just goes to zero. So far it has occurred in both Media Player Classic - Home Cinema x64 and a different error in VLC player that is accompanied by random annoying noises. Following this, on booting there may be unusual beeps. Reinstallation/upgrading software has had no effect. Since initial problems random scrolling to the bottom of the page has started and may be resposible for the loss of sound in MPC. Scrolling may go round and round too rapidly to hit the target. The second symptom was loss of touchpad control. Since initial writing loss of cursor control has become the initial symptom. In some instances clicking "enter", often after "right clicking," if scrolling has begun, will restore temporary control, if lucky providing enough to save and restart. Usually the combination of rapid scrolling and loss of cursor control means I have to push the power button until it is off. The keyboard also usually stops working at the same time, with the possible exception of "del" and "enter." In fact all control is lost, usually over minutes and often within minutes of booting. The behaviour is very eratic though and may continue to the next boot. It initially appeared very much like the classic "freeze" - when I left my computer on, an update occurred and it looked frozen with the automatic restart stuck but the logs looked like other programs continued to run but recently the touchpad and keyboard will have stopped working yet I can see running programs contining to function e.g. uploading a file. I've checked for driver updates but they all seem up to date. The devices are all in full working order according to my computer, with the possible exception of the keyboard, which needs a proper clean as a couple of keys stick. As the hardware will work normally until the problems occur, and everything is listed as working correctly, I can only assume there is either a virus that somehow has evaded every program I've tried or there is something wrong with Windows. The problem seems to worsen after updates although the initial boot works perfectly for longer and it will boot for a while almost normally.. As a side note I haven't been able to burn a DVD recently but the discs were old, cheap and I've had issues finding one that will burn on other computers. I don't know if this is hardware failure but external DVD burners are cheap enough. I don't have rescue media at present as the HP rescue media program says the 16GB USB drive is too small, even though it says 13GB is needed. It won't accept the 16GB ones I've tried but a couple could have issues as on insertion Windows asks about formatting them. I have ordered discs, 32gb usb drives and an external dvd writer but I'm still waiting. I'm sure I burned the Windows rescue disc but I can't find it and those dvds don't work anymore, even some of the witten ones. I have a copy of the iso on hard drive but have no idea if USB would work. It can take several restarts to get Windows running with the touchpad working for more than a few minutes. Each time the computer had to be shut down normally or the problem will recur before all the startup programs are loaded. If the computer shuts down normally it loads normally it will come back working but it could work normally anywhere from minutes to days. Attempts to fix: I've done a system scan. Using the command line I entered sfc /scannow but the results were "Verification 100% complete" Run memory diagnostic with no problems detected The only issue with hardware is something I noticed in the log - a controller problem with a CD drive. I'm not sure whether it is a virtual or real one though as I've never burned a CD and loaded virtual drive manager software on the day of purchase. Checked for new drivers and recent changes to them.. Restored to a backup made just before issues were noticed but no luck. The other backups were erased to make space for new ones 6 days before issues were observed. Boot Issues: Normally the computer boots quickly but now it takes a lot longer to load. Shutting down is far slower too. It hangs for a while on loading windows. I used to have to wait for the fingerprint scanner to come online but now it may have stopped blinking before I can scan myself in. The problems may exist on booting - scrolling, keyboard issues and occasionally audio with keyboard presenting as little as minutes after loading. There have been some odd changes when booting - I have to click enter on Windows 7 even though for now it isn't set up for dual boot but it may be temporarily fixed after an update. With the boot problems I don't want to risk adding any more issues but I have been contemplating creating a partition for a Linux package as a backup measure. Windows has corrupted on me several times before so every file is backed up at least twice. Sometimes odd noises occur on boot - first beeping as Windows loads and now a loud screaming. Usually I get fed up of the screaming and power off. At which point it may offer me Startup Repair. Sometimes I get a screen telling me "Windows had been unable to boot" and to choose from repair or launch normally but the highlighted options moved too quickly to pick. If this occurs I press "enter" until it works. When I managed to get into Startup Repair it failed providing no clear info as to why. Are there ways to fix it or shall I just restore the computer to the factory default? I'm finalising the back up process by removing the files, uninstalling never used software so the system image won't be too big. Normally, I'm pretty good at fixing basic problems for myself and others but this seems to be acting like it doesn't want to be fixed - HP's rescue media won't write to three separate 16gb drives. It is time to rip it open I think and determine the issue whether it is Windows, hardware based or if a Bridge spider has nested like the one I found on my Raspberry Pi? Luckily, in that instance, the case was transparent and I noticed the mother before plugging in, so all involved survived, whether spider or computer, despite the nest silk being rather difficult to remove, even off of walls. Bridge spiders breed faster than rabbits, especially indoors where they will breed all year round. They like dark, warm places out of their normal breeding season. Here's hoping the keyboard issue doesn't stop me from getting into bios, supposedly F10, and altering the boot order so I can run from USB without removing drives.

For the past 6 months or so I have been having intermittant keyboard and mouse issues.  The keyboard will freeze temporarily (for 30 seconds, or up to a minute or two) and then come back online.  The mouse will freeze up too similarly.
 
I have tried:
 
A new mouse and keyboard (Gigabyte Keyboard and included mouse, Gigabyte keyboard and Razer mouse, Gigabyte Keyboard and Logitech mouse MX620, brand new Logitech K330 keyboard and included M125 mouse).
 
Brand new hard drive and new windows installation (Windows 7 Pro.  Old install was 7 Home Premium)
 
Turned off all overclocking and turned off USB power saving settings.
 
Only software running is Avira, Trillian and Firefox.
 
All drivers are updated.
 
Other sites said to uninstall AMD Hotkey Poller Service (it was not in my services list).
 
Video Card is AMD XFS4970.
 
I just plugged in a crappy Dell keyboard I brought home from work (wired) and my Razer mouse with the cord in (not using Wireless) and it seems to be working.  But I can't be 100% sure because it is a sporadic problem.  Any advice?  I am at the end of my rope.
 
What else can I try?  I am at my wits end.  It is extremely frustrating with normal web usage, and makes it impossible to play any games that require the keyboard (trying to attack anything with number keys? Welcome to death.)

Hello! Hopefully i've come to the right place to get some help with this annoying problem that my computer, or perhaps windows xp pro, has developed.

I've had this now for several months but it's not until recently that it has become a serious problem. When I boot my computer everything runs fine until it gets to the windows user login page and then I realize that neither the keyboard nor the mouse cursor work. As far as I know, this is not a problem with my keyboard or mouse since after i shutdown manually and startup again everything works fine. I can log on, enter safe mode... whatever.. eveything works normally. Then when I shut down (or restart) and boot again the same problem re-occurs. However, the computer is not frozen when this happens... It just seems to be the keyboard and mouse that dont work.

Right now i have a terrible spyware/malware/virus/trojan infection on my computer and i have been trying to get it back into decent condition but one of the detection programs that i use requires me to restart and have the program run during startup (therefore not allowing the virus to load). The program has found a trojan (maybe several) but I cannot delete it because... well, see above. The option to do this is selected when everything works, the process is done when everything doesnt work, and when i need to press a key 1-9 do choose what to do with this trojan i cant do anything.

Okay so hopefully there is some simple explination for this and if anyon... Read more

Just lately, my mouse cursor will all of a sudden freeze up, for about 5 seconds and then start moving again. But it then starts changing cursor shapes...goes from pointer to text entry then changes to a horizontal text entry. It also seems to have a red shadow around it when it starts doing this. I also notice my keyboard freezes up...can't change Num Lock, Scroll Lock or Cap lights.
 
I started looking in the event viewer to see what was going on during this time and it seems that event viewer always has the same Error:
 
Event ID: 14

\device\video5
!051d(2558)
 
.....source nvlddmkm cannot be found.
 
When this happens, I try to log off out of my user account but the issue seems to stay with me back into the login screen because it doesn't come back up...the screen just goes blank and then the monitor goes into a sleep mode, (I/O button on monitor starts flashing.) At this point I'm locked out and must push the computers start button to shut down power. Of course when I reboot, I'm presented with the Windows Error Recovery screen.
 
I also noticed that now when I log back into my user account, the HD light stays on steadily for a long time and everything loads slowly. I have CCleaner running at startup and it takes 5 minutes to even start the cleaning process. Once things are back up, eveything seems fine until the mouse starts freaking out again.

My problems arose yesterday morning when I went to turn on my computer and it would not boot up fully. Long story short, I found some advice online and tapped F8 while booting to get to the recovery menu. I then when to the recovery options menu where I could open Command Prompt and ran a disk check, which solved my problem for the time being. Computer started up just fine.

Last night, when I turned it off, it had to install one update(Which took about 15 minutes, which if found odd). Well what do ya know, this morning when I turned on my computer, it started, and froze at the windows logo screen for a few minutes, then restarted and gave me the startup repair option(Which I never even got the option of yesterday) which I chose to do. After a progress bar loaded, I got nothing but a black screen and moveable cursor, which was my problem yesterday.

I then proceeded to try and do the same thing I did yesterday to fix my problem, however, when I got to the F8 menu, then tried to open the recovery options menu to get into command prompt, the menu never loaded and after a progress bar I just got a black screen. I have also tried the option of booting from last working setup, to no avail. If anyone has any idea of what I could do I would be extremely grateful. Thanks.

While typing a document, a sound will occur and I will lose my curser. Subsequent typing does not appear on the screen. I have to click where I want to type to reset the cursor. This happens frequently while typing. This occurs in my Word Processor, in my email, or anyplace I type. I found that the Title Bar also dims at that time and if I click on the Title Bar the cursor will return. My operating system is Windows XP. There are no error messages.
 

A:Loss of cursor while typing

What "sound" are you hearing? It sounds like something is happening that changes the active window selection - that's why the title bar dims out, it is no longer selected. Essentially, something is making you change programs so that you're no longer typing in Word, but whatever mystery program is popping up is the question.

Next time this happens hit Ctrl+ALT+Del and look for any suspicious processes that are running that may be the culprit. If you can't find anything, download Hijack This (http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html), install it to C:\Program Files, close all browser windows, run it, do a System Scan only, click Save Log when it finishes and copy/paste the contents of the notepad that pops up into this thread.

Hello all , I'm in some real trouble . I have a crapy laptop with a broken keyboard , the enter button ain't working.Now the thing is that I can use a usb keyboard while the OS runs but it is not working in BIOS and pre-boot. I can enter BIOS and I saw that BIOS legacy support is disabled so I switched it to enabled , but I can't save the changes because of the broken enter button? Is there any other way to save changes without the enter button? Or how should I get my usb keyboard to work? THANK YOU

A:USB keyboard in pre-boot issues

In theory the BIOS could offer a quick "save and exit" shortcut (look around its screens), by pressing a key from F1 to F12, but not all BIOS do that.

Try another keyboard. "legacy support" should allow usb 1.1 devices to work in BIOS, USB 2.0 devices should work fine.

Another option is prying open the enter key (carefully, it is usually kept in place by a clip-like system, using a little lever should do the trick) and trying to press the actual button connected to it, maybe with a pen if it's hard to reach.

]Hello.

Apologies for the long post! I hope this is in the right area, and that someone might know what is wrong with my card.

I recently bought a PC from Zoostorm, and I've been happy with it so far as it's such an upgrade from the last one I had. I was also pleased that it contained an ATI card, as I'd had a few problems with Nvidia in the past. But recently things haven't been going so good, and no matter how many searches I do I can't seem to find someone with the same problem as me. I'm running a 4870, and from what I've read on it, it appears to be particularly buggy, but I'm praying somewhere out there is a solution. It would be such a shame to have to change it as it's less than a month old.

I play a lot of WoW and I've experienced two freezes. I'm not sure if the music is still playing as I never have it on anyway, and I didn't think at the time to check if it was affected. I couldn't tab out, so had to reboot both times.

Another problem I've had appears to be connected to tabbing out of the game, and may be set off by my character being AFK for a few minutes. I'll suddenly discover my cursor has disappeared and I'll tab out hoping to correct the issue, only to find my desktop has been replaced with a black screen, but several menus can be seen opening and closing, namely...

when I boot the computer, I do not have access to the keyboard or mouse. System restore is turned off. THe keyboard works in the boot menu and in bios. bios shows the mouse and keyboard enabled. I tested the mouse on another system, and it worked fine. I also tested another mouse on this system and it failed to work in the same way. If I go to last good config in the boot menu, I can boot and have use of the keyboard but not the mouse. I cannot get into safe mode because it won't let me do a combination of last good boot and safe mode, so I cannot type anything in the login window. When I go to last good boot and navigate via keyboard to the device manager, there is no entry for the mouse. when I open the control panel and then open mouse properties and go to the hardware tab, it shows no driver and no mouse.

The fact that there seems to be a logic to this leads me to believe it is a virus or rootkit of some sort rather than a hardware problem.

Hey everyone.

I hope this is the correct place for this kind of problem.

I would say, about two months or so ago, i starten having the problem where devices that are plugged in to the USB ports stopped responding.

Mouse went dead (Using the Logitech G9x, and the "sensitivity" light would start flashing)
Keyboard went dead
Headset sort of died, i still had sound, but i am unable to use voice.

Only solution was a "hard shutdown" of the computer.

The problem have been there since then, with an average crash every other day, and some days up to 3-4 times.

I'm not sure what other information i should add, but let me know and i will supply it.

Thanks in advance

Goon opening out further until you get to the device itself. click on it and itwill highlight. In the right hand window there will be a very detaileddescription of that device as in brand, speeds model number etc etc These arevery detailed and are just what is needed for searching for drivers etc.

So this issue started with my new build. Originally I was using a Logitech G19 keyboard and Logitech Performance MX mouse. After building the PC, I updated to the latest BIOS version. After installing Windows and during the numerous reboots when installing updates/patches, I noticed that sometimes as Windows was loading, my keyboard would not be lit and thus I could not enter my password into the login screen. A reboot or two would usually resolve the issue so I was just dealing with it.

Now, starting two weeks ago when I upgraded to a Razer BlackWidow Chroma keyboard and a Razer DeathAdder Chroma mouse, EVERY time that I boot, the keyboard/mouse will light when the PC is powered on and remain lit until Windows splash screen. Then, right before the login screen appears, the mouse and keyboard lights will go off and I will not be able to login to Windows (ie: keyboard and mouse do not function). However, if I move the mouse as the lights go out, the lights will come back on and both will remain operational.

As this occurs towards the end of Windows loading, I'm leaning towards this being a Windows issue. I've just never seen this before and have no idea how to fix it.

I can give the full hardware specs if needed (or you can check my system details to the left), although I don't see how other hardware would be a factor.

Welcome to TSF,

Some details of your system, brand name, model, desktop or laptop, CPU, RAM, age of the system.
Which OS have you installed?

Did you reboot after plugging in your external keyboard. Is it a USB connection?

Try this link to see if any of the suggestions cover your issue.

kind regards,

Hi all,
my daughter has an Acer Aspire 5 --A 515 51G laptop with windows 10, 10 days ago she cracked the screen which we got replaced and all went well, 3 days ago it had done a windows update, 2 days ago when she booted it up to use it at school she had lost the use of the Touchpad, Keyboard, No wifi option, and No sound device.
First I removed windows updates from 3 days ago with no luck. Than I downloaded all drivers for this machine from acer website no luck. than I reinstalled windows after backing up her data files no luck. than I re downloaded the drivers from acer and I got the sound to work until I had to restart than lost sound again and could not get it to work again.

a couple of points ----- when I do a restart the screen turns off but the keyboard stays lit up but screen wont turn back on. Power button on keyboard does work.
When the laptop restarts and it is at the login screen I can use the function buttons to turn the screen on and off and the touchpad on and off but only for about 10 secs than it wont let me do it. but mouse pointer does not move.
I plugged in a usb mouse and keyboard which works and I have it connected via ethernet.
I am not sure if the cracked screen is the original cause or not.
The only thing I have not done is a complete format and install of windows.

Thanks

Good day,

Everything on my computer was fine this morning when I left for week, but upon my return I noticed that my keyboard/mouse wasn't working. I restarted my computer and confirmed that my keyboard works in the bios and whatnot, but when I get to the windows login screen, I get no response from the keyboard or mouse.

The mouse is a simple USB one, and I'm using a PS/2 keyboard, so I doubt it's some sort of sudden driver issue.
I tried logging into safemode, and I get the same result, can't move my mouse or use my keyboard.

Does anyone have any idea how to possibly fix this issue? I'm unable to restore from an earlier state either.

Thanks in advance for the help.
 

A:Sudden loss of keyboard/mouse input

Do you have a Windows Disk? If so you can boot to that and choose the repair option instead of the install.
If you don't have a Windows disk, can try another mouse and keyboard. If another mouse and keyboard work then the keyboard and mouse drivers can be removed and windows will automatically reinstall them on boot.

I have just installed Pinnacle PCTV on a Windows XP SP2 pc. All is working fine EXCEPT when I use the volume controls on the keyboard I lose all sound and have to re-boot to get any sound back at all. It's fine if I turn the volume up and/or down from the speaker controls or even using the remote control that came with PCTV.

Could this be a software conflict between PCTV and my Microsoft wireless keyboard and/or between the keyboard and the remote control? If so, what do I need to do to fix it. If not, what else could it be?

Hope someone can help. Thanks.

Hey, I have the same problem on my HP desktop. It's weird. Sometimes the volume goes away and then just comes back. The oddity is that if I double click on the windows defacto speaker icon it says no device is installed. I have the media center deluxe wireless keyboard and mouse combo, and never had this problem with my Logitech wireless one. It HAS to be something with either the keyboard program or the audio chipset. What kind of audio card are you using?

I regret the upgrade but Im too lazy to go back at least until I get a big enough hdd to backup my stuff) its also been kind of abused not in a bad way buts its kind of a gaming/working station with intense use... days on complete power up without rest... hard reboots... even now while typing this they keyboard stopped working... think it this way if my laptop was a car... it would be the 24hr of lemans mixed with WRC rally challenge at the same time but other than the keyboard its still going strong

Hi all,

I'm getting a large amount of packet loss at a particular hop in my connection to a site I use daily.

I've actually been having this trouble for nearly a year, and I've finally decided to see if anyone can even suggest a way for me to improve this.

When this first happened I contacted support for the site and they said it was my ISP, so I contacted my ISP who of course told me it wasn't their fault either.

I've had a lot of trouble with accessing my inventory from the "asset servers" for this site, and support tells me it's a packet loss issue. So I ran WinMTR to get an idea of what is happening where. I located the main trouble at ae-1-100.ebr1.Denver1.Level3.net ... and told my ISP this. They provided me with an email address for the company owning the 'server' or 'node' (or whatever the heck you call it) which is causing the trouble. Of course my email to this company went completely unanswered.

Is there any sort of BBB for such things, or some other way of dealing with this issue? I have waited a year for things to change but they never have, and 50% or more packet loss is simply pathetic. I do business in a virtual world online and it kinda irks me to not have access to my assets simply because of one bad hop in the chain.

Well anyway, thanks in advance. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
 

A:Packet Loss Issues

the level 3 server might be your ISP's bottleneck to the net. in other words, it might be who they get their internet from. I might try them again asking this question to be sure. If it truly is not there access point to the net, and just some random hop between you and the SL servers, there probably is not much that can be done unfortunately.

Hi guys,

I'm working on a computer for someone, trying to save it from a premature death. Yesterday it would only boot up to a BSOD, even in safe mode. After trying everything I could think of, I eventually resorted to a repair install. I am able to get back into the computer now (and found plenty of nasty virus fingerprints), but am having a dll error. However, the dll error did not appear following the repair install until after I fixed some issues via running MalwareBytes in safe mode. Hmm...let me back up a bit.

When I finally got the computer running again, I ran MalwareBytes to look for possible malware. It found a good bit and removed all but three. I had to run it in safe mode to get rid of those three. Immediately following this, the computer now reports: "Error loading C:\WINDOWS\efilelol.dll - The specified module could not be found" upon startup. That was one of the files MalwareBytes marked as infected. I remember because I found it ominously humorous.

Anyway, I don't see that name mentioned anywhere in the MalwareBytes log, but I know it had reported it at some point, because I saw it. So now what I'm wondering is what to do about it. I've googled that dll and *gasp*, there were no results. Can you believe it.

Suddenly after starting the computer and going online there was a loud buzz on my stereo output. The output goes from my optical audio. This has never happened before. I flipped the receiver to radio and it's fine. Typing on my backup computer now. The sound from this computer to a different input on the same receiver is fine.

The mouse and keyboard are fine here too. But none of my mice or keyboards work on my main computer. I have a wired mouse and keyboard bridging the two computers with a KVM so they can share the same screen too. On the main computer I also have a couple of mice and a keyboard attached wirelessly. This setup has been fine for a long time. Years.

But with the mouse and keyboard unresponsive (I've unplugged all but the wired one), there's no way to shut it down safely.

Can someone provide a plan to diagnose the problem or tell me how you solved a similar problem please?

A:Buzzing on audio output and loss of mouse/keyboard:can't shut down

First up is the machine listed in system specs the problem machine? Also have you tried other mice or keyboards wired or not on the problem machine.
Even if you can get at least a keyboard to work you can safely shut down using that.

Now the set up I do have a problem imagining it in my minds eye it sounds quite complicated. having said that if it has gone for years like that then maybe you have some serious hardware problems with either the plug in devices, the machine components or both.

Now I have Googled KVM (never head of that abbreviation and never used one) and find it is a piece of equipment too that could be going south?

Since my last Vista "update", about three weeks ago, I experience occasional lags in cursor movement and response, also in keyboard input. There's nothing common to the event and no warning of it occurring. I can be online, or typing, or playing a game, or the computer can be sitting there doing nothing (with just the desktop active), and suddenly moving the mouse gets no response for maybe ten seconds, when the cursor will instantly jump to the new position. Clicking anything also has a delay before any response. Typing produces nothing ...then half a sentence appears at once. The only thing I've found that clears this up is to restart windows; this irritant may recur ten minutes later or not for a couple of days.

It isn't a heat problem - CoreTemp shows about 40degC for each core, GPU-Z lists about 45 for the GPU. Task manager shows nothing amiss in processes or services. Reloading mouse software didn't help, nor did changing the mouse (from a Logitech to a Microsoft); changing from a USB to a PS2 keyboard didn't help. Avira, Malwarebytes, MSE, Spybot, and Ad-Aware all come up clean.

I think that's a laptop. If you are using the laptop's keyboard try with the touchpad disabled and/or try typing with an external keyboard.

If you are using an external mouse disconnect it while typing to see if maybe it is sending spurious signals.

I bought my Lenovo yoga 300 only last month! and have probably used it 6 times mainly to play card games and a PPP for work. This is by far the worst and most frustrating laptop I've ever had! CPU is constantly at 100% the system is unbelievable slow .. almost unusable in my opinion. I'm a graphic designer and use a powerful desktop for work but bought this low budget (although  still cost 350euro)  laptop purely to take to clients for showcase and to use for pleasure- the inability  to even get a webpage open in under 2 minutes renders the system useless in my eyes!! .. So in trying to solve this problem I ran the lenovo diagnostic which red flagged something on the mother board.. I dont remember now.. and now I have lost the funtion of the keyboard and cursor. I can only enter the  laptop via number code using the on screen number pad. Very annoying!!! I have 'drained the power' as explained in another post and during reboot the cursor reappeared but didnt function and then disappeared again leaving me to log in using the on screen number pad. For a laptop I have had less than 2 months it appeaes to be faulty?? Can anyine shed any light as to what on earth is going  on with this machine.  Thanks

Hi everyone,

Ran Adaware Pro and Symantect AV pro, both with current updates, and nothing came up. Plus, I'm using Mozilla for my browsing.

Anyways.. couple of days ago, mouse froze near center of screen while playing a game. Got out of game with keyboard and mouse was still frozen.
Rebooted in safe mode - still frozen.
Plugged in another working mouse - still frozen.
Plugged in a serial mouse - still frozen.
Plugged in a USB mouse - said "detecting new hardware", then "hardware installation problem. hardware may not work."
Still frozen.
