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.)

A: [SOLVED THE HARD WAY] Keyboard & mouse not working!!

What sort of keyboard and mouse do you have? (wireless?...USB?)

If you have a USB keyboard and mouse, there may be a problem with XP and your USB drivers...the same applies to wireless.

Hey. Here's the poblem:

I'm using windows Vista 32bit...I recently updated my computer. After the update, my mouse wouldn't work. It's a PS/2 mouse. I unplugged it and replugged it. I restarted and replugged. I tried a USB mouse. I tried different ports. Nothing worked.

I used my keyboard to go to the control panel to see what the problem was. It said the mouse properties (in the registry) is corrupted or missing. I think it also said the problem was code 9 or something.

So I tried a system restore, to before the update was applied. (I've had more problems after windows updates than you could possibly imagine)

So after the restore, windows booted up normally. The mouse still didn't work, so I browsed the web to try to find solutions. I didn't change anything and I ended up restarting my computer and trying safe mode. The mouse still didn't work, so I went back to normal mode to try to uninstall the driver for my mouse. That was when my keyboard stopped. Then, the computer itself freezes. (both after about 2 minutes)
(if you're wondering how I would know the computer froze, it's because any window that is loading doesn't come up after the keyboard stops)

So now I go back to try safe mode. It freezes after about 2 minutes as well. I try the system repair boot option. The damned mouse works, but no window shows up. Just a black screen.

So I went back to normal boot (thinking the mouse will work) and nothing. I try to q... Read more

Put my computer back togethor today, and got it to power up after some troubleshooting.

One problem: Mouse and keyboard do not work.
They were both working fine minutes before on a different computer, so I know they work.
Im running a wireless mouse setup, so I tried a wired mouse and it still doesnt work.

I get a single "beep" when I disconnect the mouse from back panel, doesnt beep when I disconnect keyboard.
 

A:Solved: Mouse & Keyboard not working

This seem to be very annoying

1.Check if the wire of the wired mouse is well connected to the mouse port on your motherboard.

2. Check if the mouse port is well connected to the motherboard

3. Try to test it once more on the other computer as maybe when pluging out of the other computer or pluging in in the new one it may have been damage.

If it you retry it on the other PC and it work once more and on yours it don't then it maybe be a problem of humidity or the PC mouse and keyboard port on the motherboard get damaged.

For the beep it may be that there a problem on the motherboard mouse and keyboard port.

Try that I ask you if it still not working just come back and ask me I will try to find another solution...

Keep me updated on the problem

I just purchased a new PC with 16 GB of Ram and installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. My USB mouse and keyboard stop working randomly and when the PC goes to sleep causing me to have to do a hard reset. I have researched this on the web and updated the USB hubs the devices to wake the computer but this has had no effect. My computer shop thinks that the problem is the 16 GB of RAM with Windows. Can anyone offer any suggestions?

I recently got a system with following configuration

Intel Desktop Board DH67VR Media Series,
Intel Core i3 processor -2100 LGA 1155
4GB Ram,
500GB HDD SATA,
LG DVD Player SATA,
PS2 Keyboard (thought the board doesn't have PS2 Slot for keyboard i have used PS2 to USB convertor),

When installing Windows XP my keyboard is not working. When I was booting the system keyboard is working fine, I changed the Boot option in BIOS. But when the installation screen comes to "Enter" - to install, "R" to Repair and F3 to Exit. My keyboard is not responding.
I googled and i came across links to check Legacy USB Option enable/disabled, when i check in my BIOS it was Enabled.
Can any of you please let me know what could be the issue.

Hi there!

I recently installed winsixaxis to get my ps3 controller working. But now my usb doesn't work at all. It works briefly before it enters windows but then my mouse and keyboard just lose power. I've tried going into safe mode but they also stop working there too.

Is there any solution?

I would suggest doing a system restore to a date before you installed winsixaxis. If a program does that much damage I would think twice about having it on my system.

Hi guys, the title pretty much sums up my problem. I've had this keyboard for 2 years and it worked fine until a few days ago when it just stopped working. The mouse works perfectly find.

I've checked device manager and it say the drivers are up to date and that the device is working properly. I've looked around on the internet and someone mentioned it might be keys that are stuck to the keyboard or something, so I've checked for that and problem is still there. I haven't tried to open the keyboard up to see if there's a problem cos i wouldn't know what I'm looking for.

The receiver doesn't have a reset button on it (I didn't notice one) so that method cant help me. I'm not sure the exact model of the keyboard as I'm in a different city due to term time and i cant remember if i retained the box or threw it away.

Is there anything else i can do? its a really good keyboard and I'm so used to it now, having to buy another one would be a pain

I can send images of the keyboard, receiver if needed!

I have an interesting problem.

The laptop I'm working on (And HP G series; running Windows 7 64bit Home Premium) had a NASTY trojan that disabled the keyboard and mouse (is what I'm assuming). I was able to work on the laptop with a USB mouse and the onscreen keyboard

After going through about 10 AV software I finally got rid of all the Trojans (the scans on various AV software ran clean multiple times after removal); but the keyboard and trackpad continue to be disabled.

Under the Device Manager it lists as the device as a "code 10" error.

Doing some Googling I found a post that said do delete the registry entries that were labeled "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters"; which I did and I rebooted.

Now my USB mouse OR my USB keyboard won't work.

I tried using a Linux Live CD and the trackpad and keyboard DOES work there no problem. Also the keyboard works fine when I'm in the BIOS.

It's only when I'm in Windows (even in Safe Mode) that the keyboard/trackpad/USB Mouse/USB Keyboard doesn't work...so it's not a hardware problem.

Things I've tried (besides deleting those registry entries)

- Startup Repair
- sfc /scannow
- Reinstall the drivers (when I DID have access to Keyboard and Mouse)

So to recap; I cannot use the keyboard/trackpad (or a USB Mouse and USB Keyboard) in Windows (including safe mode); but they DO work when not using Windows.

Anything else I can try?

Hello Everyone,

I come with quite a strange problem with my Netbook (Advent 4213), I have it dual-booting Windows XP & Ubuntu Netbook Edition, however the mouse & keyboard have decided to cease up every time I use Windows XP, some times I get a couple of seconds use out of it before the log on screen, but after this they both stop working.

I have tried to re-install Windows, However the USB Install disk I have also denies the use of the Keyboard & Mouse during the installation. But this is not the most confusing part.

You would think that if it does not work on the Windows OS or the Windows Install that it would be a Hardware problem, however, It works perfectly fine in Ubuntu.

I have plugged in a USB keyboard & mouse and that seems to work in Windows XP, however I think you can all vouch for me when I say I do not want to be lugging a keyboard & mouse around with an ultra-portable Netbook.

There is software related to my phone of which I would like to use but can only use on XP, it would be good to be able to use this without an external KB & Mouse.

Any help would be fantastic, thanks in advance,
Rik.

Before this round of trouble I discovered a problem with one of my graphics cards when they were in SLI with Blue screens and other nasty little things occuring when running Windows; I removed my secondary graphics card from the system to see if I could get a more stable OS, which I did.

I decided to test to see if the other graphics card running on it's own would lead to a stable system, however I was getting zeros on the VGA BIOS bootup screen and other problems before I even reached Windows Vista.

I did sucessfully boot into Vista and enter my password (using the keyboard) and move the mouse around, however once I had logged into my profile Vista began asking me if I wanted to install the drivers for the keyboard and mouse, I selected to update from the Internet and when Vista did not find any drivers for either device it disabled them.
Eventually I got both the keyboard and mouse functioning again by reinstalling Intellipoint pro and the Logitech setpoint.

While using the second graphics card I noted some distortions such as zeros appearing on the VGA BIOS screen during boot up, so I decided to switch out the graphics cards again, again this caused Vista to forget about my keyboard and mouse, I am however able to get onto Vista a combination of a cheap usb mouse I had laying around and the Vista on screen keyboard.

The fix I used previously (reinstalling of Intellipoint and Setpoint) has not works,I have also attempted to manually install the drivers through dev... Read more

A:USB mouse and keyboard not working

I currently have a working install on a second harddrive in this computer. I was wondering if there was any way I can access the other windows install from this one and use it to fix the problem? I guess this also means that the problem is due to a driver because the mouse and keyboard work on the new install.

Hi;
I've a Medion Akoya MD8360 PC with previous windows 10 Home Build 10240 installed and with a working USB medion mouse and keyboard.Reccently I upgraded manually(with media creation tool fromMS) to Windows 10 Home V1511 Build 10586.71 and my USB keyboard and mouse didn't work anymore.I had a luck that I've Acronis 2015 True image and a backup(tib file and i'had to use the bootable Acronis rescue/emergency disk and somehow I succeeded to use my old PS/2 keboard and mouse (from another PC) to function with the upgrade.But the prolem is now that i cannot use/install anyymore the original Medion USB keyb&mouse.I tried eveything in device manager(remove driver uninstall driver and then reinstall but nothing solves the problem.For example the USB mouse is called Pluralinputmouse 0.8.0.2 in dev.manager;but there is a yellow mark and i had the following messages:"device doesn't start (code 10),insufficient system sources available to finish the API" or Device not connected or there is no connection(code 15)
Does anyone knows a solution or advice?

I have installed Windows 8 Release Preview for a month. I installed this OS normally without any problem during installation and I used hardwares normally. I But now, my mouse, keyboard and all USB plugins don't work. When I start my computer, the light on my keyboard turn on and then off when Windows is starting. I have tried many solutions but they don't work. My internet connection plugin works well and my computer still update news from Sport App. What should I do now?
I'm using a desktop computer with Intel Pentium D 3.00GHZ processor. Before I install Win 8 Released Preview, I used Windows 8 Comsumer Preview and no problem happened.

I have the same thing as Tinyman...no keyboard or mouse by attempting to add safe mode with networking. What is UEFI?
Where do I find this USB viewable option as I am connected by USB?

I went to set up (F2 at boot) > and then searched around for anything that relates to USB and found that USB is enabled and on high speed. Hope that is not it and I am missing something, because I still have no mouse or keyboard.

Keyboard and mouse are the ones that came with the Dell XPS 7100 system.

I'll try different USB ports and report back...didn't make a difference.
What am I missing? (except for my mouse and keyboard...lol)

hi ok i have a dell optiplex gx280 that i am trying to fix the problem is the mouse and keyboard do not work.This dell pc only had usb ports and i believe the usb drivers are corrupt or that it has a nasty virus anyway the keyboard and mouse do not work at any point even at start up.

1,i can not go into the bios setup
2,i can not go into safe mode
3,i bought a pci ps/2 card but the ps/2 mouse and keyboard do not work.
4, i have removed the cmos battery but still nothing.
5, i can not start a windows repair disk as it does not boot from this and i can not change it due to no keyboard .
6, i created a windows xp recovery floppy but after the first floppy disk asks for disk 2 and then to press enter .... keyboard doesnt work so stops there.
7,i have tried every usb port and nothing. the usb keyboard and mouse does work tried on another pc.
8, i have also tried another hardrive but it doesn't pick it up says the hardrive is missing??

I think that is all what i have done and tried and before someone says i cant log in either as the mouse or keyboard does not work! so many people will miss this.

if anyone does no how to fix this problem please contact me message me etc i havent a clue what to try now. please dont send stupid answers thanks
