Keyboard not working properly, mouse just isn't working

Q: Keyboard not working properly, mouse just isn't working

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 device manager, everytime I do this with the keyboard I get a message saying that the driver cannot be installed because of "Access is Denied", I get the same message with reinstalling the mouse.

I have got the keyboard to work somehow, however it keeps asking me for a driver at startup and inside device manager the keyboard is listed as "Unknwon Device" that is ON the Natural Ergonomic keyboard, if I choose to update the driver or tell Vista not to tell me about the driver update the keyboard stops working and I am back to square one.

Short Version: I changed my primary graphics card and now the Vista drivers for my mouse and keyboard do not work while the same hardware does work under Ubuntu.

Any help will be apprieciated, 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.)

Recently my keyboard and trackpad stopped working properly.  They DO work, but I must hold my x360 at a 45 degree angle to get them to turn on.  Everything functions perfectly when the laptop is at this angle, but the second I put the laptop down in a "normal" laptop position (keyboard horizontal/screen slightly angled) the keyboard and trackpad shut off.  This makes typing, shall we say, an undesireable task!  I am currently using a portable bluetooth keyboard and a bluetooth mouse as a workaround. I have scoured the internet for a solution and have not had much luck.  I am unsure if this is an orientation sensor calibration problem or if it's a hardware issue.  The only post I've found that mentions a possible solution is this one which mentions an orientation sensor firmware update available only through support:  http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/Windows-10-Screen-Auto-Rotation-... I have restored this laptop 3 times now hoping to reset whatever the issue might be, but to no avail. To be clear, this is NOT the rotation problem that is widely reported elsewhere.  Everything seems to be working OK as long as I hold the laptop at a strange angle.  Basically, if I try to use my laptop like this... _/ the keyboard and trackpad don't work.  When I move the laptop to something like this...\/ the keyboard lights up and the trackpad works "normally." OF COURSE, my...

When I double click on internet explorer, instead of opening the program it opens up the properties folder. It also does this on the other programs onthe desktop. Nothing has been changed in the mouse properties. I tried uninstalling the mouse and using a different mouse on the computer. I can't do a system restore because the mouse won't click. I can't seem to use the keyboard to tab over to where I need to be either. Any suggestions?

I have problem with my external mouse and external keyboard. It started about 3 weeks ago. They freeze, jump or shutdown, most annoying is mouse, I need to reconnect it usually. It will work well about 1-5 min and again. Touch Pad works well.

I have installed newest Windows updates, also downloaded and installed drivers from Toshiba web. I set up default BIOS settings. Nothing helped.

I don't have recovery disk to try that. Is there any solution other then recovery/reinstalling system?

Hi all on TSG,
First time posting here so dont be too mean thnx!

My laptop has a problem with it's USB ports
Im currently using a Windows Vista Home Premium with SP1

Im using a ASUS Notebook A8 series (about 2-3yrs old?)

The USB ports on my computer have all gone a little wonky but (thankfully) my laptop cooler and thumbdrive still work on it (although albeit crazy at times)

---------
The problem

When i plug in the Plug and Play mouse from microsoft or any mouse except for the ASUS mouse which came with the laptop none of them work. The light comes on so I know the power is working. But when i move the mouse there is no response from the screen.
When i check the controlpanel->mouse no other devices pop up apart from my synaptics touchpad.
When i check the device manager ->
[i also get this problem with many Bluetooth Peripheral Devices which keep asking to be installed (its such a hassle to keep closing them)] the mouse does not appear even after trying to update the hardware. basically the laptop does not detect the mouse. the mouse is Microsoft Notebook Optical Mouse
I tried many other mice and i always get the same problem

Basically all my USB ports are ****ed.
I think there might be something wrong with the USB files in my computer?
Or smth to do with the INF files.

Please help and ask for any extra details which you might require in order to assist me

This issue has been bugging me for such a long time.

Cheers

I am using a predator GM-4600 with my HP DV7 laptop, I never had any problems with the mouse before until recently.
My mouse seems to be disconnecting every now and then. Some days it works fine and some days it just struggles to work.
At first I thought it might be a driver problem so i tried to reinstall it because I had the latest update, although that didnt really work.
I have tried to use different USB connections on my laptop, the problem comes is when I do that it says driver installed but then I keep getting pop-ups from windows asking me if I want to install the mouse driver (HID Compliant).
Even if I do click yes, it still comes up and up.

The mouse still works fine, I tried it on another computer and had no problems.
Im not too sure either its my windows vista thats being silly or maybe my USB ports are malfunctioning.

Any suggestions?

Regards

Ive got vista ultimate 64. With a standard computer.
My problem is that I cant configure my mouse buttons.
After I install the latest 64bit mouse driver, and click on the mouse icon to configure the mouse buttons, an error pops up that says -

'Some mouse settings might not work until you connect a Microsoft mouse to a USB port on your computer or set up a Microsoft mouse that uses Bluetooth technology'.

The problem is that I have a microsoft mouse that is connected to a USB port.

The mouse works fine on my spare XP computer so its not the mouse that's faulty.

I tried separate microsoft mice - wheel mouse optical and the intellimouse optical, both by microsoft and both have same issue.
I tried different usb ports and same happens.
I tried the ps2 port and same happens.
I uninstallled all mouse drivers and reinstalled but no help.
Basic left and right click works but cant configure the wheel button.

It was working a week ago, but I went for a holiday and when I came back it was faulty.

All vista updates are installed, security is the windows firewall, AVG free antivirus, and windows defender, but none of these have been a problem before.

Reinstalling vista is not an option, it takes 70+ hours to restore my comp to its working condition, I dont really have the time to do that. And im not really sure it would work anyway.

Can anyone think what may be happening, or how to fix? Im not a pro at computers.

thanks in advance for answers.

For example, if I hit the "R" key, it will come out as "R4", if I hit the "Y" key, it will come out as "Y6." If i hit the space bar, 0 comes out and if I hit the "6" key, "Y6" comes out. Nothing was spilled on this laptop, I updated the bios to see if that would fix it, I also uninstalled the keybaord driver and reinstalled it. I purcahsed a new keyboard but still no solution. I have tried almost everything to fix this. I even took the laptop apart to dust out the motherboard and after putting everything back together, still no results.

Hi,

I was cleaning my laptop's keyboard yesterday with a damp cloth (Apparently too damp), and when I turned it back on, the keyboard wasn't working properly. To sum it up, this is the list of problems it has right now:

- None of the keys work if I press them.

- Despite that, the computer thinks that certain buttons are being held down.
At first, I Removed the keyboard keys and tried to dry them with a hairdryer (I was careful to not let it get too hot).

Unfortunately, I turned my laptop off for this, by holding down the power button, as I couldn't do it with the start menu, as the computer registered the keyboard pressing down a button, directing me to the search browser.

Anyway, that meant that when I tried turning the laptop back on, it gave the screen which states that my laptop did not turn off correctly, and that I must select an option for restarting, and then press 'enter', which ofc, I can't do.

Its been nearly 24 hours since It stopped working, and I'm quite sure there is no water left in the keyboard (I could be wrong, but the initial amount of water that must have seeped in must have been tiny to begin with (The cloth I used was not that wet at all- I had strained it before I used it)

The only thing that changes at the moment is which key the computer thinks is being pressed- at the moment, it is the F12 key, as the computer keeps going into a system checkup (All hardware reads OK, but I can't get further than the ... Read more

Your backup keyboard doesn't work either in the same port?


Does it still work 'outside' Windows ie in the Bios etc.


Desktop? USB? Have you tried a different USB port?


Uninstall all your keyboard software and plug in your back up board to a different port if you can.


When starting up your PC, look at the lights on the keyboards. During the POST (before it starts Windows) you'll see the lights (capslock, Numlock etc) flicker. When Windows actually loads, it will flicker again as it 'handing over' control to the OS and the OS drivers.


When Windows loads, after login, Do the lights stay on or go dark completely?


To save on screen typing (which is a pita), quote and yes/no some of the questions.

Hey guys,

I am running XP on a Compact Presario SR1910NX and have been trouble shooting some basic issues.

I had recently cleaned my system of viruses with help from techguy, however the keyboard and mouse started acting up, by means they would not work either at boot up or after the computer took a nap due to non use.

I bought a new mouse and that did the trick, however, the keyboard is another issue.

I can use it only when in safe mode, which is how I am accessing this forum. Other than that, once the computer is turned on, all the lights on the keyboard light up, stay lit and the keys do not function.

I have tried different keyboards, but all have the same issue.

I am assuming it has something to do the the computer accessing the port for the keyboard.

I have also tried to do a system restore back to the point that the system was working and was clear of issues, but no matter what date I choose, I get an error message stating the computer can not restore the system, no other details as to why.

I have attached a copy of the current hijack this log to see if I missed any viruses or what not.

If this is a wireless keyboard, have you tried resetting the keyboard and reveiver? Usually a small button on bottom of keyboard, and another button on the wireless transmitter... also you could try another usb for the receiver.

If its a wired kb check the connection... after you power system down. Unplug and then plug in again firmly. You could also try a different usb here as well.

Hey guys,
My external wireless mouse is not working properly.
I'm on Windows 7, Acer Aspire, the software on my mouse is up to date.
Only a few problems, but they are very strange.

1) When i click with it anywhere in iTunes, it switches the song. It does not do this when I use my touchpad on my laptop.
2) It seems that double-clicking capabilities are not working. I am unable to double-click to select a range of text. For example, double-clicking the browser address bar does not select anything. I am still able to double-click select text with my laptop touchpad. Also, I can not double-click to open files or folders.

I tried uninstalling the mouse software and then connecting it again, updating the software, and restarting my computer and I still have the same problems.

A:Mouse Not Working properly in Windows 7

You have ruled out mouse drivers, and I assume you are reasonably sure there are no conflicting mouse and/or keyboard drivers (Software installed and showing in the Programs folder).

I'm not sure what "formatted Windows" means. Did you reinstall the OS and all your programs?

But the next likely suspect is your graphics driver. Have you made any recent changes there?

You can test this by going into Safe Mode. Does the mouse behave properly there?

If it does you can further test this by uninstalling CCC and the graphics driver, restart and let Windows install it's own generic driver, restart to complete the configuration, then see if the mouse works properly without the AMD driver.

Let me start by saying this is my first time posting/visiting the site so if this isn't in the correct forum I apologize. Let me start with a bit of background info...I'm runnning Win 7 Home Premium x64 with 2 user accounts. Whenever I start up, everythings does as it should until I reach the user select screen. When it gets there it automatically selects the first user account without any input from me. Once the first account loads and the desktop appears, things start popping up at random as if they are being clicked by the mouse (example: start menu comes up as if I've clicked the windows button in the bottom left corner). Also, the right-click function on the mouse will not work. The right click menu appears very breifly but then disappears (as if a left click has happened).

After the comp is up and running for a short period the mouse functionality seems to go back to normal (I'm having no issues as I type this post). However, on a restart or shut down/start up it always reverts back to the problem. I realize this doesn't seem like a very serious issue, but it makes it impossible to select my 2nd user account.

On a side note, I tried to use system restore to see if that might help and I got an error message saying system restore failed to work (0x800703f1). I did some searching but didn't find any real difinitive info about this error message online, could it be related to my initial problem? Thanks for the long read

A few days ago my son accidentally... got sick, on my new notebook pc. I removed the keyboard and cleaned out everything really well using Q tips and pipe cleaner with rubbing alcohol. The "fluids" did not seem to get past the keyboard and touch pad. There actually wasn't much of it. I reassembled it and started it up. Everythig worked fine. A day later though, I learned that my keyboard was typing in caps and lowercase at the same time. sOmEThIng lIkE THis (the caps lock button operates and reverses the letters) and I can not type numbers, only the symbols!@#$%^.
Also, the touchpad AND peripheral mouse will hit buttons on certain windows and web sites and highlights list items, but will not select those list items. such as Windows Help. At this point I do not know how to tell if I have a soft ware or hardware issue. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks, Todd
 

A:key board and mouse not working properly

I would try my keyboard and mouse on another computer. Further cleaning would be needed if you continue to get the same errors.

I have a Wireless Intellimouse Explorer for Bluetooth. As of now, it is not working. If I want to get it working I can spend about an hour or more trying to get it to work. If I can get it working it will work until I restart my computer, so there is really not much of a point to try to get it to work. The way I normally get it to work is by going into either Wireless Link or just Mouse and just fiddling around for a while. If I find a way that works and I try it again it wouldn't work so i'm clueless. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

So i need help before i go insane!Some of the keys on my laptop keyboard are not doing the proper function.For exapmle, the MUTE button is working similar to the TAB button and the volume button brings up the start window with the apps, settings, etc. A few other buttons are not doing the proper function either. I have no idea what happened to make these keys not work right but I need help before i throw this laptop out the window!

Hi folks. I just had to do a reinstall of my Window's 7 and since have had a problem with 2 keys on my keyboard. When I use the apostrophe key, nothing happens, but when I type something after, it appears. It's no big deal really, but I'm rather anal and it just bugs me when something isn't working right.

I have used search here at SF and gone through the tutorials, but can't find anything that quite matches. I tried to update driver's but the little box on the screen tells me driver's are up to date. I checked Device Manager and it doesn't indicate any problem. I checked Keyboard in Control Panel and it says the device is working properly.

If anyone has any suggestion's I would appreciate hearing them, if not I'll learn to live with it.

Thanks, David

I have a Qosmio X70-A-12N, newly bought last September, Windows 8.1, 64 bit.


After working properly (and great!) for half a year, the keyboard started to stutter.

If you type a paragraph or two, with let's say 250 words, every then and now, let's say every 10th or 20th word (undpredictable), a key-stroke yields no results. I tried a different keyboard via USB: no problems, so it has to do with the Qosmio in-built keyboard.

It does not depend on specific keys, and it does not depend on the pressure with which you press down the key.
Any key may turn out to be ignored every now and then.

All drivers have been updated to the most recent issues, BIOS is 1.50.

It seems that the problem is most prominent when working on battery (not sure).

Is this a software or a hardware problem? Does the keyboard need to be exchanged?

A:Qosmio X70-A - keyboard is not working properly

My first thought was BIOS update but according Toshiba download page you have latest BIOS version.
You know it is not easy to say what is wrong there. I cannot say for sure if there is some problem with the keyboard but maybe you should contact nearest Toshiba service provider, explain the situation and ask for help.

They should know what must be done. at least, they have very good diagnostic tools and it is possible to detect the problem.

This issue is identical to a post last year, "Keyboard only working in certain situations in games". Sorry to double post, that thread seems to be closed despite receiving no responses.

ISSUE: After image restore, laptop keyboard no longer works properly in games.

DETAIL ISSUE:
* Keyboard seems to be working fine in all 'standard computing tasks' and in fact when typing into developer consoles, chat bars, etcetera in several games. Typically it does not do anything at all, but I have noticed that sometimes it acts like a stuck key has been pressed; I press "W" to move forward and my character constantly runs forward.
* Keyboard mysteriously seems to work when I am holding the ctrl key. For example, in Portal 2, I can move around completely fine while crouched with CTRL. Spacebar also seems to be unaffected.
* Mouse works fine at all times.
* Keyboard worked fine until I wiped computer and reinstalled everything. Currently fully updated and otherwise perfectly working Vista SP2.

HAVE TRIED:
Validating/reinstalling game software (before I realized it was every game)
Running in windowed mode / fullscreen mode
Checking stickykeys settings
Reinstalling keyboard driver
Updating directx

---

Thanks for any input - even an indirect thought might lead me down the right path! Since I've checked Hardware > Driver > ActiveX > Software I'm not sure what other elements even come into play here.

A:Keyboard not working properly in games

Check the settings in the game or buy a game-controller/joystick instead as keyboards were never intended for game playing except for the very simplest of children's games.

Hi there!
The other day I inserted a USB cable connecting my phone with my laptop Inspiron 7537 in attempt to charge it. The moment I plugged it in the laptop restarted. I immediately removed the cable. The laptop booted normally but I noticed that my right Shift key stopped working at all. Also the 7 number key on the numbers row below F1-12 buttons types as 9, not as 7, and when Num Lock is on behaves as Arrow Up key.
About the Shift key I tried switchin on/off Sticky Keys, Filter Keys, running Dell Diagnostics and nothing helps. The only sign that I have that is still working is the sound it makes after turning on the Filter Keys, but nothing else.
When reading all the forums there is no such problem, but most often both Shift keys not working.
What can I do?

Thanks.
