My USB keyboard and mouse are not working on any USB port, but working with ps/2 converter or whatever that tiny device is called. I also tried other USB devices on same ports and they are working normally.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Guyz, I really need a help. Ive accidentally ran a .vbs file that I found for Windows 7 that edits the registry to hide desktop icons. And now, I suddenly cant use my mouse nor my keyboard whenever i login. While inside DOS, Startup Repair, the mouse and keyboard can be use.

Basically, once it logs in, I cant do anything as my mouse and keyboard both could not be use. Below are the content of the vbs file:

Const HKEY_CURRENT_USER = &H80000001

strComputer = "."
Set objRegistry = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")

strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced"

strValueName = "HideIcons"
dwValue = 1
objRegistry.SetDWORDValue HKEY_CURRENT_USER, strKeyPath, strValueName, dwValue

Hello, whenever I boot up my desktop, the keyboard and mouse go into a spasm phase and when I press control, it's shift, the buttons arrange differently, I've tried looking here before, but I haven't got any keyboard programs, and I just restored my whole computer.
So help me out here please, also whenever I press a button, it's like I pressed that button 10 times. Maybe I'm missing a driver for the mouse and keyboard?
Just help me out please.

Hello everyone,One day as I was scrolling in my FB newsfeed I pressed to see a FB video and put it on full screen. When I finished watching it I tried to press ESC and nothing happened. I then realised that my keyboard keys and my touchpad was not working.BUT the brightness,wireless and FN+space (combination ( the light around my touchpad would turn on and off everytime i did the combination mentioned before) were working.On my pc I have dual boot for windows 10 and Ubuntu.. So I restarted the pc and logged in to my Ubuntu and from there I connected a bluetooth keyboard I had and a mouse, I changed the startup files and now my PC logs in to W10.The bluetooth keyboard wont work on keyboard and now I cannot login to Linux since I changed the startup order.The funny thing is that on my bluetooth keyboard the only keys that are missing compared to the original keyboard on my laptop are the keys I mentioned that still work. because of that I am not completely convinced that it is a hardware problem.Did I accidentally lock something on my windows 10 and the keys are not working? I already did the hard reset sessions and the unistallation of the drivers ( just briefing the guys who were about to tell me to do that )Thanks a lot and please if you can help, do so!Adamos

I need some help! I can't get my mouse or my keyboard to work (in any way, including function keys during bootup) I have tried other keyboards and a mouse and the problem is clearly with the computer. I'm guessing one of my four kids erased the driver software, but I don't know how to do a system recovery or download new drivers, or anything else when I have no keyboard and no mouse function to allow me to control the computer. I need this computer to do a grad school assignment and am desperate for some help. THanks!

Hello, I have a strange problem that started last night. After restarting my keyboard and mouse wouldn't work. I thought it was just the wireless mouse and keyboard acting up so I hooked up a PS/2 keyboard and mouse and they don't work either. They do work on my brothers computer so it isn't them. It does work for me to enter to select safe mode but once it gets to the screen where I have to click the admin account, they don't work. They show up as working correctly in the device manager but they won't work. The mouse cursor just stays in the middle of the screen. I was able to use the mouse from my tablet at first. My cousin went into the system configuration utility to change the startup to see if that would work. Now when my computer starts up it wants me to click to return to normal startup and I can't. Now the tablet mouse won't work because the driver doesn't load. So I'm basically stuck. My cousin left his keyboard so I could connect to the internet to try to find out what's wrong.

Hi, everyone!
This is my first post here. I am experiencing problems with my mouse and keyboard. I hope you guys can help me out.

Here's the problem with the mouse and keyboard.

I can move my cursor, I can left and right click it normally, the problem is while on my desktop. I don't know why but it keeps on highlighting the My Computer icon, and it's located on the upper left corner of my screen, also when I open my browser, when i scroll down, it automatically goes back up, I can't look the bottom part of any website because of this, the wheel works though, when I click it, I can go to the bottom smoothly and can go back up. Also, when I type web address in the address bar, it's jerking and it's running like crazy. For example, if I type: fb, it keeps on running up and down, to the pages with f and b. It's getting annoying. Also when I'm playing games, when there are choices, my mouse basically points on 1 choice and stays there, I can move it but it just goes back there, I can't choose anything because of this. This happens in Windows Explorer too. When I'm in control panel, devices and printers, I can't choose properly because all of them are highlighted, when I click on the keyboard, the mouse opens up instead, because they are all highlighted and I have to fight for it. Also when I try to type in the search bar in control panel, for example, if I type: troubleshoot, instead of this, the letters get reversed, like t... Read more

Okay, So here's the problem.

Recently, I was playing WoW when my mouse all of a sudden stopped working a few nights ago, I unplugged and plugged it back in and it worked fine. But, It was moving arond kind of laggily, I shrugged it off and went to bed. The next day I woke up and turned it on, the mouse was moving around very laggily so I restarted, unplugged it and then plugged it back in. None of the two worked and then it said somthing about the USB malfunctioning and that the device wasn't reconginized. So, I restarted again and the same thing happened. THEN, I did what I did last time in order to fix it which was -
Step 1: Turn off computer and unplug the usb mouse & keyboard, and unplug the computer.
Step 2: Hold in the power button for 30 seconds.
Step 3: Turn the computer back on.

And so I did that about, 6 times trying to fix it and it failed to work. The last time I went to turn it on which was on the same day, It loaded up and the mouse and keyboard still failed to work and then after about, 1-2 minutes the screen bluescrens with -

*** STOP:0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x80635479, 0xAF12E96C, 0X00000000)

Now, I have a feeling why that might of happened. You seee recently I Restored to factory defaults, And I have this thing called "Sonic" (It's not a virus) And it does this windows installer thing and what not, and it goes through about 5 of them. It never installs either because of somthing not being found, but i've restored to fact... Read more

Suddenly, a computer that was working fine (just after complete clean re-install) will not work with a standard PS2 KB & mouse plugged in. I can use a PS2 KB with a USB mouse but plugging in a PS2 mouse results in a glacially slow (15-20) minute POST and boot. The KB worka (sort of) but only accepts ONE key press every 5-15 minutes. The PS2 mouse stays frozen at all times. This happened suddenly from one boot to the next and there is nothing obvious in BIOS. (I tried clearing CMOS and resetting it but it made no difference.) The KB & mouse work fine on other boxes and substitute KBs and mice have same problem on this box. Suggestions?

Does anyone know why my dell keyboard and mouse plugged into the ps/2 port would just rndomly stop working? I had to plug he mouse into the usb and i am typing his with the on-screen keyboard. Any help would be great.

A:Keyboard and mouse problem

Good Evening Chris, that sounds terrible, normally the mouse and keyboard should be detected during boot and a PS/2 system should not disappear.

As you are aware they do receive voltage from the M/B and generally have hidden miniature fuses in behind the actual PS/2 sockets. These are not really user replaceable.

I would be inclined to try your mouse and keyboard on another machine being very wary that they may have an inherent problem.
Conversely you might try a different keyboard and mouse on your machine.

You haven't got them plugged into the wrong sockets by any chance that used to be be a trap.

I would be inclined to consider trying a "Live linux system" to see what happens, but I suspect some problem on your M/B.
The live systems run exclusively from a CD so don't invade the machine, very good for analysis kinds of use.
There are some small live linux versions this Puppy is a typical mini system or Mepis or one of those would be an other alternative. http://www.puppylinux.org/user/viewpage.php?page_id=1
Cheers, qldit.

I'm having a problem with both my keyboard and my mouse.
I have Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit with a AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 5000+ 2,60GHz processor and 3GB RAM.

The problem with my keyboard is that every time I start the computer the num lock starts but then when I have logged in it's "starts again" which means it's turns of. It's just annoying because I always have to put it on "manually" every time I start the computer. I think it is because I have a software for my keyboard and maybe both my software and operating system starts num lock which results in that it first turn on and then turn off. I have a "Logitech G15"(the older version of keyboard, but the newest driver/software) if thats any help.
This is how it's looks:
The problem with my mouse is that every time I set the speed it's resets when i turn the computer off. So if I set it, it works until I restart the computer and then it's the same as before I changed it.
I do actually change it on the buttons on the mouse so it could be that which is the problem but even if I change it in the controllpanel it changes.
My mouse is a "Logitech MX518" and this is how it's looks:
I am hoping that someone could help me with at least one of the problems!
Thanks in advance

My usb keyboard and mouse wont work on my computer. When I plug them into any of the usb ports the mouse wont move and the keyboard is dead. The ports cant be bad because my thumb drive works in any of the ports. The mouse and keyboard work on my other computer so I donít think they could be bad.

A:USB keyboard and mouse problem

it could be that in your BIOS settings the USB keyboard/Mouse support is set to disable witch is usury the default settings.
In most BIOS screens the keyboard and mouse settings will be in the 'Integrated Peripherals' or the 'Advanced BIOS Settings'.
Enable these settings and you should be able to use them fine.

Hello all.....

I have the Microsoft Comfort Keyboard 1.0A and the Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 set.

I have all the updated drivers. I tried plugging them into the USBs and the typical ports. My problem is i get serious delay. It doesn't happen all the time. Just occasionally and enough to annoy me. For instance I will type and all of a sudden a button will repeat. The keys aren't stuck. The mouse will also stop responding. This happens much like lag on the internet. If you can understand my meaning. Aside from reinstalling the drivers and switching the ports I have no clue what to do. Please help.

I have just bought a new USB Keyboard & Mouse as our old Keyboard was PS/2 was packing up. I have followed the instructions that came with the Keyboard & Mouse (both made by Microsoft) and installed the drivers first, and then connected the devices after a reboot, but Windows did not recognise them. I tried to reboot the computer, (with them connected), but again Windows did not recognise them.

After trying all of this, i connected them via the USB - PS/2 Connectors supplied and they worked first time. They are currently connected via USB in the two USB ports on the front of the PC as they will not work on the ports on the rear.

My PC Specs are as follows:
Intel Pentium D 820 2.8Ghz,
Windows XP Pro, SP3

Hiya and welcome

Lets try a general cleanup first

Go to Tools | Internet Options. General tab. Under Delete Files, delete offline content. Also, clear the History.

Content tab, under AutoComplete, clear Forms and Passwords.

Advanced tab, under Browsing, look for Enable Insta on Demand. Untick.
Under Security, look for Empty Tempory Internet... Tick.
Apply and OK

Go to Find Files and type in cookie. When found, open the folder, and delete all the cookies found. You won't be able to delete the .dat file found.

For this, go here and get the Spider:

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

Also, go here and download AddAware http://tomcoyote.com/lsindex.html

Download and run, ensuring that Deep Registry scan is enabled. Remove all except any references to Web3000 or new.net. If you're unsure, copy/paste the list here.

Also, whilst you're there, download and install RefUpdate to get the latest updates. Just click Connect.

I ordered it with a wireless keyboard and mouse. The mouse and keyboard have had intermittent problems from the beginning but I have just put up with it since the problems didn't show up all the time. However, this has become worse over the past year.

Problem1: Keyboard
I'll be typing away, and all of a sudden notice that no characters are showing up on the monitor. I wait a few seconds and type again and maybe one character will show up out of the five or so that I type. Sometimes I'l type a letter and get double characters or the characters show up way after I stopped typing.
The doesn't happen all the time, just once in a while and it doesn't make any difference if I'm typeing an email or a Word document and whatever.

Problem2: The mouse will be working fine then all of a sudden the mouse pointer will jump to the top or side or bottom of the screen. Sometimes when I left click once on something (like a file name) just to highlight it, the mouse will open the document instead of just highlighting it. Sometime it works just fine.

I make sure the batteries in the keyboard and mouse are always pretty new but that doesn't help. I have also went into the control panel and clicke the Mouse icon and slowed down the double-clicking, but still no help.

Then it reloads and the keyboard and touchpad work. But only barely.

Because I was having a few problems I re-installed WindowsXP onto a newly formatted disk earlier this week. At the time I installed it I was using my son's USB mouse. Having re-installed successfully, and applied every Microsoft update necessary, things seemed fine.

Later in the day I replaced the USB mouse with my original non-USB (PS/2?) mouse and, after detecting the new mouse and auto-installing the drivers, the mouse refused to work. I replaced the non-USB mouse with the USB mouse and that wouldn't work either. I them removed the USB drivers for the mouse and re-booted, following which not only would neither mouse work, but also the keyboard failed to operate while in windows. Incidentally, the PS/2 mouse works fine on my son's PC and doesn't seem to be faulty.

To cut to the next part of the story I decided to try and repair the windows installation because I thought the registry had become corrupted. The keyboard worked OK while I tried to do a repair installation of WindowsXP, but both mice refused to work at all. Also, while WindowsXP was re-installing it got stuck in a never ending loop of WindowsXP partially installing for a couple of minutes and re-booting back to the start of the same proceedure.

Eventually I decided to reformat the drive and start again. I also decided to remove every card from my motherboard and re-seat them just in case!

Now I have re-installed Windows XP on a reformatted drive - using the USB mouse - and everything seem... Read more

i did try to find a thread concerning this but failed.
it's also a bit hard to explain- not in my native language:

i recently bought a usb microsoft Keyboard & mouse (connected via a usb external hub 'station')
they seemed to work great for a few weeks, but in the last 2 weeks something is wrong:

first, the keyboard problem:
when i type, i suddenly get a weird keyboard response.
let's say i was going to type:"my name is Roei".
in the middle of typing i get something like this:
"my nammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm" - for no apparent reason !
i type correctly, no mistakes or over pushing the 'm'.
it happened many times, quite suddenly, every minute or so.

and the mouse problem:
i get those 'mini lags' when the pointer freezes for a second, and then jumping to where i am. also happens within every minute or so.

this is very annoying and frustrating, and i NEVER had those problems beforrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrre (see ?! that's the real time keyboard going nuts !!)

i think those two issues are related to something in my system, but i can't figure it out. is this the graphic card? the usb ? (all drivers updated)

please help !!

Hey guys. I'm having a problem with my mouse and keyboard in windows 7. I've been running W7 for nearly a month now without ever experiencing this problem. Just recently during a 4-5 hour long gaming session my game closed down without an error message and suddenly everything went haywire. My keyboard acted incredibly strange and so did my mouse. An example would be that all my numeric keys turned into their shift+number counterparts and my caps locks was off when the led glowed green. When I tried to start a program using the left-mouse click it highlighted several programs and upon double-clicking instead of running I recieved the properties of the program instead.

So far in attempt to fix this I've tried the following:
Twinkering with the keyboard and mouse settings
Twinkering with accessibility options
Uninstalling and installing the default ps/2 and mouse drivers
With no success Does anybody know what could be wrong or how I could solve this?

Thanks beforehand.

Have a new problem that's developed on my laptop running XP SP2.

1 - On the desktop screen, the right button seems to act like the left and vice versa.

2 - Clicking the left button on the Start menu, flicks it on quickly then it closes.

3 - The keyboard doesn't work normally, e.g the buttons try to open up the file, edit, view menus

- This is cured at the moment by logging out of the main XP account, logging off as a Guest and
then going back into the main administrator account.

- I have Windows restore turned off and all the settings in the control panel/mouse, etc seem normal.

Reset the motherboard (follow instructions in the manual for shorting the jumpers) and reboot. In the bios, make sure you have USB legacy devices enabled as I think this is what is causing the USB ports to ignore your k/brd and mouse.

I've got two PCs connected to single monitor, keyboard and mouse via a KVM switch. My keyboard is a Logitech G110 (USB wired) Gaming Keyboard. My mouse is a Logitech Invisible Wireless mouse. My problem is that often when connected to the KVM switch all inputs and outputs work except the keyboard and the mouse. The port indicator selector light which normally is ON steady is now flashing. This is my second Airlink 101 KVM switch and I tried them also with an IOGear KVM Switch Model # GCS632U. There is nothing wrong with the mouse or the keyboard because when connected directly to either PC they work. My question is: Is there a compatibility issue with certain keyboard and mouse models when used with KVM switches, by this I mean that some keyboards (particularly gaming keyboards) and mice may require more power and the KVM USB circuit has power limitation. At present I am left switching the keyboard and the mouse USBs directly to the PC I wish to use.

I have a Pentium III computer with Win98 originally installed that I recently upgraded to WinME. A few years back I attached an Acer AirKey Wireless Keyboard w/mouse (model WIL-172U). When I first installed it I used the keyboard only and kept a trackball mouse I had been using attached to the mouse PS/2 port. Everything has worked beautifully, but recently I decided to uninstall the trackball mouse and use the mouse that is integrated onto the wireless keyboard. As per manuf instructions...I uninstalled trackball software, turned off my computer, plugged wireless mouse cord into PS/2 port, turned computer back on and waited for computer to completely boot. The computer keeps getting hung up on the OS opening page. I tried turning off computer and installing the old two button mouse that originally came with the computer to be sure it wasn't the PS/2 port and the computer booted up just fine. I also looked in Device Manager to be sure there were no conflicts and there wasn't. Would really appreciate any suggestions as to what the problem could be...

When boot my PC running Windows 7 I find that the PC will not respond to either the keyboard or the mouse. I have started it in Safe mode and I am able to use the keyboard to select Safe mode from the menu. However when the computer finishes booting in safe mode the keyboard and mouse do not work.
Is this a software problem or a hardware fault? Is threre anything I can do apart from re-installing Windows? I don't want to do this unless I have to, because I don't want to lose the data on my disk.

Could anyone possibley find me the drivers for MS wireless keyboard and mouse 700 v2.0. Win7 seems not able to locate them for some very peculiar reason however if i could find them myself i'm sure i could solve my issue. Not being lazy, i've honestly looked just about everywhere and can't locate these models which btw come together in a pack without however a driver disc. Thanks so much, Max.

In the last week my keyboard and mouse have become mushy in response.

Also, Internet explorer is slow starting up.

Any idea where I can start looking for the problem with this? I cannot think of anything outstanding I have done to change the software set-up. I have neither added any new drivers/software or uninstalled anything so I am a bit flummoxed as to what the problem is.

My first thread so please be patient with me.

I have a problem with my mouse that freezes.
It mainly happens if I switch the computer power off from the socket in the wall or there is a power cut. If I switch on my computer and press any key my mouse freezes. The only way out of this is to again reboot and then delete Microsoft intellitype Pro5.2 and Intellipiont 5.2 from my computer and then again reboot.
If at a later time I get the same problem I then reboot and reload the two micosoft problems.
This problem can sometimes happen without the loss of power.


A:Microsoft Keyboard & Mouse Problem

Generally you should use the power button on the computer to shut down
The power button signals the motherboard that it is ready to shut down and Windows begins a series of steps to ensure that it is done correctly.
I will do things like save anything that is open.
If it doesnt know where to save something it will ask you.
It also take anything in its own memory and assure that it is safely on the HDD.

Just turning it off at the wall is the same as a power outage and important data could be lost.
I cant say for certain that this is your issue but it is possible that the driver settings arent being fully saved due to improper shut down and thus causing an issue.

On a side note I use a intellipoint mouse and never load the software for it.
When Windows starts it creates the mouse driver and works fine.

Im not certain what the intellitype software does exactly but I am using a MS keyboard with no additional software.
Perhaps your keyboard has extra keys or multimedia buttons on it but if not try to not use any software and see how it goes.

Over the years I have found that it is best to let windows decide what is best for it and not load any extra programs or drivers unless necessary.

On so since about 2 weeks ago ive been experiencing weird occurrences with my mouse and keyboard. From time to time the hardware acts weird but turning off windows and on again helps with it for abit but then come backs it comes on and goes away roughly once a hour for 5 minutes.

What happens on keyboard is the delete key doesn't work or doesn't type anything what ever i click on the keyboard or the letter for example instead A does an A with a line above it.

Or the mouse when it happens the left click sometime double clicks or when click on link to just switch on it open the link in a new window or right button does nothing.

I was using this mouse for 8 months and the keyboard for 2 years and 8 months with both no such problems before.The mouse is Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum RGB and the keyboard is Corsair K50.

So far i used C Cleaner to turn off start up programs and delete some registry, also used Malware Anit-Bytes is deleted some files but still occurs, also adwcleaner it deleted files but still same and i also tried JRT and nothing still same errors occur.

I didnt have such problems before the Windows Updates but then it was fine 2 weeks with them updates.
