Q: Win7/8.1/10 Mouse and keyboard is unplugging and plugging

Hi. I have problem with my mouse and keyboard, they are unplugging. I read many tutorials here, but nothing helped me. Mouse and keyboard are randomly unplugging and plugging, but after this they are unplugging and I must restart computer. Its ridiculous because usb headphones are working. Problem started when I had Windows 8.1, after I formated to 7, now I have 10, and problem is still. I tried some other mouses and keyboards, but didn't helped. I changed some hardware, but didnt helped too. I found something strange. My standard mouse and keyboard are turning off and I must restart computer, but new set is unplugging and plugging sometimes before turn off. Help me please (sorry for my english)

My pc:
cpu: i7 2600k with box cooler
mobo: Asus Maximus IV Extreme-z (before I had ASRock p67 pro3 b3)
gpu: Gtx 660 Msi (before Radeon R7 260x oc)

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.)

Have you made sure that you have the latest drivers for your motherboard? Also what keyboard and mouse? And are you getting any notification on screen when they disconnect?

Getting ready to do the install on my new SSD with some trepidation. I have Raptors in Raid 0 right now and would like to simply unplug them, set the BIOS to AHCI and use the 0 port for the SSD experiment/potential fiasco. What I hope to be able to do if the SSD doesn't like me, is to unplug it, set the BIOS back to Raid, plug in the Raptors and pretend the whole thing never happened. Does this stand a chance of working?

A:Plugging and Unplugging!

I wouldnt unplug the raptor raid - if you use intel raid (the one i'm sure of and probably similar, or the same for others) when you enable raid in the bios it also enables AHCI - so you should be good to go with testing the ssd drive - just unplugging a raid array can be very hard to set up again - i did it years ago and it was a miracle i got it back up and going again (that included reinstalling the OS) so not recommended - it also depends what options are available in the raid rom (i think its called) which you set it up in before you install the OS. From memory, which is bad, the problem was it couldnt recognise one or both the drives.
It depends on your motherboard I guess but for mind it should be ok - running raid and using the same controller to use a ssd drive in AHCI mode - but treat this as my opinion - you should be able to find information on your motherboards site, or intel etc's, site. Or wait for more replies as Im uncertain and more repies means more suggestions.
If it has 2 controllers eg intel and jmicron use the JMICRON if it supports AHCI to be on the safe side.

Hey guys. I ran into a little problem recently, and would like to share it.
I know it is supposedly ok to plug USB cables in and out while the computer is on, but, to be safe I have always gone through the Safely Remove Hardware icon.
For some reason, though, I have always felt it is safe to just plug sound devices in and out with no regard to whether the computer is on or not. Have done this for years.
However, I noticed a few days ago that one channel of my onboard sound line input had quit, on my newest MB. I did not realize this for awhile, because somehow the system had just rerouted the one channel into both sides, when writing to the CD or DVD. (I noticed that Joe Walsh appeared to be playing an unplugged guitar on the Eagles Hell Freezes Over concert after transferring from my old VHS tape to DVD, even though both speakers were working! LOL)
Anyway...I fixed the problem by just installing a sound card. (by the way, even a cheap $14.00 sound card is at least as good as most onboard sound: mine sounds much better than the original.)
So, would you guys advise having the computer turned off, even to plug in headphones, for instance?
 

A:Plugging/unplugging sound devices

No, 1/8" jacks can freely be plugged/unplugged while the computer is on, and when you're outputting sound.
As to why the jack went dead, cou÷d've been just natural death of age, removing the plug at an extreme angle and damaging the jack, etc...

My problem is this, my motherboard is Biostar TP67B and I have downloaded the sound drivers from the manufacturer website which is realtek high definition audio.However, If i had left my headphone plugged into my front panel jack and when I restart my computer, the headphone icon keeps flickering saying its plugged and unplugged constantly when it is in fact plugged in. I had tinker around a little bit and I have no idea how to fix this problem now. Its going bad to worse as it unplugs itself randomly now. I'm trying to go for a full reinstall of my sound drivers.

A:Headphones Plugging and Unplugging constantly bug

Have you tried a different headphone? Maybe the headphone and not the PC or headphone jack.

If not the headphone, check the connection from the front panel at the motherboard, May be a bad connection there. Reseat (unplug then plug back in) the connector at the motherboard. If it still has problems I would suspect the front panel headphone jack, or the wiring.

Hi all,

Acer 7740g, Windows 7 HE.
I have this annoying problem that when my AC power is plugged or unplugged it makes a beep.
Muting the sound completely helps, but that's sometimes not an option.

I tried the following and no luck:

Editing a registry entry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Sound\Beep and changed it to "No".
Uninstalling the Beep device from my device manager.
Turning off my pc speaker, unfortunately, I didn't find where I can disable it.

Anyone has another idea?

Thanks.

Hi all,

I'm at a dorm room with cable internet. It usually works fine, but now if I unplug it, then plug it back, the computer doesn't connect to the internet anymore. Sometimes it says it's acquiring network address, but that doesn't change. The computer connects to the internet fine if I turned on the computer with the cable already plugged in.

Another computer doesn't have this problem with the same cable, always able to connect after being unplugged/plugged. Both computers are on Win XP.

I suspect the Windows firewall has something to do with it, if only because it is turned on the the problematic computer, and not on the other one. I couldn't turn it off, however, because it doesn't let me open up Windows Firewall Settings, giving me the message that the "associated service is not running" and whether or not I could like to start it. If I click "Yes", it simply says it "cannot open Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing service".

Please let me know what the problem might be and what i can try to get it working again. I hope I haven't given too much useless information.. haha. Thanks!

Hello, I've noticed that my computer crashes everytime i unplug or i plug in and USB drive. Today I bought a new USB mouse and when I connected it no crashes were seen, but when my pc installed the last driver, the BSoD appeared once again. I'm using Win7 64b and I really don't know what can I do, I've tried everything like uninstalling all USB drivers and recreate the INFCACHE.1 file, but still nothing. What can I do to solve this?
Thanks in advance.

A:BSoD when plugging/unplugging USB and when installing USB drivers

1) Does it happen with all usb devices or only the mouse?
 
2) Does it happen with all usb ports?
 
3) Does it happen in safe mode?
 
4) Look in device manager - are there any yellow or red symblos?
 
5) Download and install the newest chipset driver for your system. If it's a laptop, get it from the website of your laptop manufacturer. If it's a desktop, you can get it from either the desktop or the mobo manufacturer's website.
 
6) Look for a bios update.

I have the Hyperx Cloud and the microphone easily unplugs from the headphones so that you can choose to not have a mic some times. While I was talking with my friends on skype and needed to mute the mic quickly so I just pulled out the microphone and when i plugged it back in it didn't work. I have googled many solutions but nothing seems to work.
 

A:Simply unplugging my headphones and plugging them back in seemed to break them. HELP!

Do the speakers still work after you have unattached /reattached the mic?

Presuming you are running Windows (as you haven't specified)

Open control panel, then open Sound (depending on your OS and view options you may need to click on the Hardware and Sound option first or similar)

In the sound window, click on the Recording tab.

With the Mic attached how many devices do you see?

Is the Mic on your headset set as Default?

If you remove the mic and reattach (with the sound window open) does the mic get recognised and show back up in this list?

Does it remain as default / enabled?

Any help would be appreciated.

In the System Sounds, there is an option for device connect or disconnect. This will probably do what you want. You will have to assign a sound for those functions.

Dual Core Windows 7 Pro 64 bit Toshiba laptop. My daughter was working on a Power Point project for school. She went to plug in her flash drive and it didn?t seem to load the drive up. She unplugged it and then plugged it back in. We got a BSOD. We restarted it and it BSOD again. I tried some general troubleshooting, including restoring it to a previous version, and now cannot get into Windows at all. Not even in safe mode. Now I am getting multiple BSODs.

Currently I am seeing these BSODs:


I am getting one when just trying to start and run windows I am getting a BSOD about memory management.


If I try to go into safe mode it loads the files and then I get a BSOD regarding the fbwf.sys.
Using the Windows 7 disc I have been able to get to the System Recovery Options. It finds my install and then blue screens with IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL even before it gets to finding my install.


Other BSODs I know I have seen are regarding the Ntfs.Sys and PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA.

I was able to run a mem test on it at one point and it said everything was fine. I would appreciate any help or advice you can give me since I can?t even get to a command prompt or safe mode.

I have a Dell Vostro 1400 running Vista Home Basic and have had two periods in the laptop's existence where it would mysteriously freeze. You could see everything on the screen, and the power lights were on, but it would not respond except to a hard reboot by holding the power butting down for 5 seconds.

I am going through one of those periods now, and have discovered that the problem happens when I am either plugging or unplugging the AC power adapter, but don't know why. I have been all over the web for a solution, and while it does seem I am not alone with this problem, I have not read a sensible solution yet. My favorite bad answer is "don't unplug your laptop when it's on."

So, does anyone know what it could be? I wanted to look at system logs, and so went into the Event Viewer not even sure what to look for, but didn't see anything that looked like a likely culprit. Please help!

Thanks,

A:laptop freezes when plugging and unplugging AC power adapter

being a member of the Dell Community Forum, I looked there and found this

A lot things happen in Windows when inserting the AC power adapter.

To check if it's a classic CPU lock-up: repeatedly press capslock. If the capslock light doesn't change, there's no live in there.

Assuming the CPU is locked up: It's possible there's a log entry in the system log just before the AC power adapter is inserted. These entries give clues where to look, just before things went sour.

Next try to reproduce it in Safe Mode (press F8 when Windows start) If it's also in Safe Mode - try running an alternative OS (no need to install)

If the problem also shows up here - most likely it's a hardware issue.

Otherwise it's a windows issue - might be driver related.

the "alternate OS thing is a link on the forum web site. Click here to go to that site.

Hope this is some help... Raybro

When I plug in my laptop to charge the laptop turns off, and when I unplug the charging cord from the computer it turns off. Does anyone know whats going on? I have an Inspiron 15 5558.

A:Laptop turning off when plugging or unplugging in charging cord

Hi DNGUYEN2252,
Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system?
Does the adapter led stay on and stable or does it go off when connected to the system?
Disconnect the adapter and battery and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds to release any static power. Then try connecting with the adapter only / battery only.
I would first suggest you to try with another power adapter. The current one in use might be shorting the system and hence the system powers off.
If another adapter works fine, then replace the adapter. If the other adapter  also exhibits the same behavior, then replace the DC port - this is the part you would need - http://bit.ly/2kZR8go
If nothing works, I would suspect a faulty motherboard. 
If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.

Hi All! Been a while since I've posted, but sitting here reading other's posts, I almost forgot why I logged in!

I have a weird problem with my computer.....a little background:
I didn't turn the computer on for a LONG time....perhaps a year, so one day, I decided to boot it up and it won't boot past the post! So I replaced the MB battery, checked the power supply, replaced the memory...and it booted. But then, I turn it off, and it won't boot again...same problem with it not booting past the mem. post. So being that it was an old computer, I figured I'd just build myself a new machine and use the hard drive as a slave. There are programs on the drive that I want to use that I cannot replace! Well, I tried doing that, but the new computer won't see the drive....it won't even boot with it plugged in. So....

I take the hard drive to another machine that I know works fine, and it boots. Problem solved....so I thought. I turn it off, and try and turn it back on.....nothing.....no beeps, no post....nothing. So I tried changing the power supply, and plug all back in, and it boots. Turn it off, nothing. Long story short, if I unplug the motherboard power cord from the board, and plug it back in, it boots, but if I turn it off, I have to repeat the motherboard plug thing to get it to boot again. I have had the drive checked for viruses, and it's clean.
I have to admit, I am stumped! Any ideas? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciat... Read more

Urgh. Typical.

Install new case fans after moving 2 HD cages from the front of Corsar 600T case.
Check they run ok. Fine.
Put HD cages back in, one in the space on the bottom of the case beside the PSU.
Fight with the cables to get the HDs connected and the modular PSU cables back into the PSU.

- Attempt to power on. Nothing.
- Check cable, try another power cable. Nothing.
- No fans, no lights, nothing.
- No 'electrical sound' when flipping the switch on the back of the PSU.

Seems I have a 7 year warrant on the PSU and its only about 3 years old. But Corsair RMA system insists that you "try another PSU to verify the problem is the PSU" which is fair enough so off to buy another PSU, probably another Corsair. Hope the RMA system allows for refund rather than replacement, otherwise I'll have 2 PSUs which isn't really much use. I guess I can use this as an opportunity to upgrade to a bigger PSU since 7970 CF, 3 HD, 2 SSD, i7 2600K @ 4.7Ghz, a powered device connected to almost every single USB port is probably getting towards it's limits. I can then stick any replacement HX750 on Ebay or something...

Hi,

At my work, a new computer running windows 7 regularly freezes at the logon screen. You can't move the keyboard mouse at all. Often a reboot fixes the issue.

You can't remote desktop/VNC to it but you can ping it.

I've checked with the networking department and it is in the same place in Active Directory as the old computer.
I've checked device manager and found no uninstalled hardware.
Log Viewer shows hardly any errors just some GPO warning, nothing obvious.

Any ideas?

Try starting in safe mode. (Shut Down, switch on and keep pressing the F8 key)
From the menu select Safe Mode.

If this works fine then I would look at disabling the startup programs.
( Open the Run Dialogue and type: msconfig)
Disable all startup programs (Don't worry, you can reverse the process)

Hi,

I have one machine with Win7 x64 installed and one machine with Ubuntu x32. Using a Belkin Flip USB KVM switch to change between the 2. This was working until recently - now when I switch back to Win7 the mouse and keyboard freeze and the only solution is to reboot. I can switch back to Ubuntu where everything is fine and dandy.

Had a look at the event viewer and under System I can see some messages which may be related, e.g.:

The driver \Driver\HidUsb failed to load for the device USB\VID_1532&PID_0101&MI_00\7&7cff8c3&0&0000.

I have since bought a Digitus USB KVM Switch (with audio) and I get the exact same thing. Starts up fine, switch to Ubuntu fine, switch back to Win7 and the mouse and keyboard freeze. When I have the device manager open, I can see some yellow triangles next to some of the USB input devices.

Anyone have any idea how I can resolve this?

I am having an issue getting past this one roadblock on getting a fresh install of Window 7 Enterprise on a newly purchased M800z All-in-One ThinkCentre.  I have done what research I can on the problem but I still cannot find a solution to get the Keyboard and Mouse to respond when I get to the Choose a Language screen during installation.  I have tried a number of solutions including the one described here https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25476/Windows-7-USB-3-0-Creator-Utility.---snip---
Purpose
 
Windows 7* installation media doesn't include native driver support for USB 3.0, so during installation, when you get to the screen to select your preferred language, a keyboard or mouse connected to a USB 3.0 port does not respond.
 
This Windows 7 USB 3.0 Creator Utility automates the process to update a Windows 7 installation image to include USB 3.0 drivers.
---end snip---
I have also used instruction to update the WIM files with little success as well.  Anyone have any ideas what I can try next?

After plugging in my external keyboard, both my external and laptop keyboard no longer function. The keyboards cannot type or execute shortcut commands. When clicking download links it results in downloading download.htm, pressing F results in opening the browser menu in chrome, and clicking website links results in downloading url.htm. This problem persists after unplugging the keyboard but only seems to begin after the external keyboard has been plugged in. After a restart computer use without plugging in the external keyboard results in no issues, though I haven't done so for extended periods of time. The external keyboard functions normally when plugged into another computer, though it was a Mac, so I'm not sure if the different operating system could have an effect here.
 
I've run a Malwarebytes scan already and it didn't pick up anything. I think it's likely a virus, but I can generally just use Malwarebytes to solve the vast majority of my problems so I don't know where to go from here. At the moment I'm running a Spybot search and destroy scan to see if that picks up anything Malwarebytes could have missed.
 
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
 
Edit: Spybot managed to pick up and delete a virus called win32.downloader.gen, I also ran TDSSkiller and picked up no root kits. The problems still seems to occur.
Edit: I have used the computer without plugging in the external keyboard for several hours without issue.

I am thinking there might be a driver conflict and you may be able to fix it by downloading the latest drivers from the keyboard manufacturer's Website.

I just got a dell inspiron with windows vista home premium 64bit on it. I'm finding that when i unplug my usb mouse i get a blue screen/memory dump followed by shuting down. I saw some similair threads on the forum when looking for an answer, and the answer i found was to use the 'unplug device' icon in the bottom right corner. But the problem i have with this, is there is no icon there, i click the arrow to see the rest and still not there. Do i need to turn off my laptop everytime before unplugging mouse, or did i miss something? If further information is needed just let me know

A:blue screen when unplugging usb mouse

I have fixed this on my laptop doing the same as I posted on the dell website: Studio 14z: BSOD whenever i unplug USB - DELL COMMUNITY
Uninstall windows updates with the following Knowledge Base numbers (I haven't figured out which one is doing it quite yet)

Computer crashes when unplugging my mouse, Steelseries Kinzu V2, usually when Google Chrome is open. I recently reset windows and the problem did not show up for a few days but now it crashes.

Hi,

Since some days I have a problem on my computer. A BSOD appears whenever I want to remove my mouse, or uninstall its driver (I thought maybe it could help), or even disabling the mouse.

Can you help me ? I ran "DM log collector v1.3" before posting this.
Here it is : DRAGONCYBORGPC-06_03_2015_190845,58.zip

I tried everything I could think of but it doesn't seem enough to solve the problem.
By the way, my mouse is a "Saitek Cyborg R.A.T 7", bought in 2010.

Thank you for your help.

Best regards,
Geoffrey R.

I've been dealing with this problem for a while now and just googled it but the fix I saw was for Vista 64bit and I'm not sure if it'll work for the 32bit as well.

Basically I unplug my USB mouse (I usually turn off my screen too) and within minutes my comp has blue screened. The Vista 64bit fix just said remove the update KB973879 but when I searched my updates I couldn't find that.

Thanks for any help with this

We plugged in an external usb keyboard into an Asus n5200 sub-notebook computer and now the notebook keyboard is scrambling the letters and displaying numbers when some of the letter keys are pressed. Only the right side of the keyboard is putting in numbers instead of letters.

We suspect that the USB keyboard driver has overwritten the notebook driver, as there was an automatic detection process that occurred when the usb keyboard was first plugged in. The original driver seems to be missing. Machine running windows 2000. We are going to try and get it from the internet.
Anyone seen this problem before?

Thanks Russ
 

A:Notebook keyboard scrambled after plugging in usb keyboard

ASUS Techical line came through....it turns out that the notebook keyboard has a num lock function that got turned on for some unknown reason when the usb keyboard was plugged in. Solution: press FN key and Numlock key and keyboard goes back to normal. The keyboard uses the right side letters at a number pad when num lock is engaged.

So i bought a new USB Mouse because my PS/2 one is kinda broken with the left click, though i've searched for the problem and found out that it was the switch in the mouse, but i didn't feel like opening my PS/2 mouse and trying to fix it. So i bought a cheap USB Mouse. Now i've plugged it in, and when i plugged it out, the PS/2 mouse wasn't working. I still need to use the PS/2 mouse for playing games because it feels more comfortable, and i'm much more used to it. I tried restarting the pc then plugging in the PS/2 mouse, but it's not working. Any suggestions? Basically, i want a PS/2 mouse and a USB mouse to run at the same time.

My Logitech G500s mouse suddenly slows down and acts sluggishly when I connect my iphone to my computer (via USB cable). I am on Windows 8.1. My Logitech setpoint driver version is 5.50.98. I try to up the sensitivity by pressing a button in my mouse but the feel is just not the same (very different). It becomes fast again but the feel is just not right. I tried updating drives without success.

The thing is, this also happens in my computer office (windows 10, logitech G5, updated setpoint driver, i7, asus mboard 16gb ram, etc). Not only that but it also happens in my parent's computer.

When I remove the iphone from the computer, it doesn't go back to making my mouse fast again. I need to reboot the computer for me to get the original feel of my mouse back.

This makes me not like to plug in my iphone for charging whenever i play games because it messes up the "feel"of the mouse (having a somewhat different speed and sluggishness which I can't fix with the mouse settings. It's just not the same).

Anyone knows how I can solve this?

Hello guys,

Since yesterday i'm facing a strange issue.. Whenever i plug in my laptop to charge, it just automatically turns off (not proper shutdown) within a few moments. This duration before power off varies at times. Its runs without any problem when on safe made. This problem happens only when win 7 is in normal mode. I noticed that the fan speed increases as i plug in. However, this also used to happen earlier. On searching online, some said it may be due to heating issue. But then how does it work normally in safe mode? Also, when i start in Diagnostic Start up mode, it starts perfectly. It does not start when i remove my battery and plug in..it powers off just after entering windows. This problem does not occur when in BIOS. Please help in finding a suitable solution.

Thank you.

A:Laptop turns off when plugging in for charging in normal mode on win7

Post make & model in case this is a "known issue" that can be google-searched for.

By "normal" mode, do you mean not "safe mode", or not "selective startup/msconfig"?

Does the problem also happen in safe mode?
Does the problem also happen in Selective Startup?

Otherwise, what do you mean by "normal".

One guess is that you have a problem with a 3rd party power management software. It's supposed to start "doing something" (such as report the battery status) when it senses a power plug is inserted, but instead it shuts down.

Is the shut down orderly (Windows is shutting down), or is it abrupt, like someone suddenly killed the power?

What's most interesting so far is the possibility that the machine works & charges fine in Safe Mode, but not in MSCONFIG or Normal mode. If that's the case, we're looking for a software problem that can probably be solved by reinstalling something, compared to a hardware problem which can be serious, expensive and/or insolvable.
