Q: USB Keyboard and Mouse problem

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.

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.

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:


Code:
Const HKEY_CURRENT_USER = &H80000001

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

Then it reloads and the keyboard and touchpad work. But only barely. I can't type very fast because about every tenth key I try to press doesn't work and I have to either press really hard or press it several times. Also, the touchpad is really unresponsive and jumpy. I have like a 4 year warranty but I don't think anything is actually broken, because It did this about 3 weeks ago for 4-5 days, then it worked fine until about 4-5 days ago. Thanks for any help.

You mean the pin? If the pin has been damaged then you're screwed but you might be able to solder it back! I'd trash it and grab a USB keyboard.

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

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.

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

Hi!
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!

Hello SF Members!

Now, I'm back from long holiday, and have to ask something and have problem.
Like title say : I can't use keyboard and mouse in BIOS.

That problem start some days ago. Before this there wasn't any problem, all worked very well. But yesterday, when I entered in BIOS, mouse cursor is at bottom, and can't move it, and keyboard don't work (I can use mouse and keyboard in BIOS)...

How to fix that problem ?

Motherboard is ASUS P8H61-M LX2.

Thanks in advance.
Trinty

A:{PROBLEM} I can't use keyboard and mouse in BIOS

The first thing I would try is a CLRTC or hard reset.

Legacy CLRTC Procedure
Note all your current BIOS settings
Shut down the computer > remove the power cord.
Remove the 3v battery.
Move the CLRTC jumper from pins 1-2 to 2-3.
Touch a metal part of the case and Press and Hold the reset button for approx. 30 seconds to discharge all power from the board.
Put the CLRTC jumper back on pins 1-2.
Replace the 3v battery > replace the power cord > boot.
Immediately go back into BIOS and reset all your preferred settings. If the CLRTC worked you will need to reset the date and time.
From your motherboard's web page, it seems we don't need to remove the battery anymore. YMMV.

This is really annoying cause my 2nd computer is running Windows 2k and i have no problems. Also my new keyboard for some reason if i try to ALT-F4 a Internet Explorer window it shows a little message on the bottom saying "contains commands for working with the selected items" and doesn't close the window.

that usb composite device was the receiver for my mouse and keyboard, so as expected they both stopped, i thought to myself, "its fine i'll disconnect and reconnect it, and everything will be ok" but no the oh so helpful found new hardware wizard pops up, which of course i cant navigate.

so i thought, ah-ha heres a ps2 mouse and a ps2 keyboard all shall be fine, nope they're recognised in the bios i can go into the bios and say dont use usb keyboard or mouse, but it gets to windows and i cant change the num-lock status or use the mouse. so i plugged in the logitech again, and low and behold they work in the bios but not windows.

then i booted to safe mode, both ps2 and usb keyboards still don't work

Please dont say to take off the batteries as this would be the dumbest idea. BTW, how long will my battery last if my computer is on all 24 hrs.

Chances are very good that it shuts down automatically after some period of time and re-activates when you touch it. That battery will last quite a while. But I need to replace my mouse battery fairly often (which is why I use rechargeables) but the kb battery has lasted more than a year.

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.

mobo: MSI K8N NEO4-F
cpu: AMD Athlon 64 3000
keyboard/mouse: Logitech Internet Desktop Pro Black (PS/2)
power supply: 450 watts (pre-installed in casing)

Im building a new computer and assembling all the new stuffs that i brought. Everything works fine, except the keyboard and mouse issue. Here's the problem

After a couple of secs or minutes, depending how long the system have been shutdown. The keyboard and mouse freezes, mouse starts to move erratic and also the num/caps/scroll lock in keyboard gets slow to respond when you press it and finally both PS/2 devices freezes. Even in BIOS i notice the keyboard will freeze in secs. or minutes. And sometimes it can't even detect the keyboard at all at start-up.

My conclusions is that its kinda grounded, i disassembled everything and layed out the motherboard on a cardboard attached all the wires and everything that is needed... System went fine, i even waited like 30mins run 3dmark and problem never occured again. But at a time i put all things back together inside the casing, the same problem occured again.

Keyboard and Mouse are really unstable, Luckily i made it to installing Windows XP SP2 and all the drivers needed in my build. It still works using USB keyboard/mouse, i already tried attaching other mouse/keyboard to the PS/2 ports, the same problem occured still. Im already annoyed shutting down the system again and again to activate the mouse/keyboard for just a short time.

A:New Build: Keyboard & Mouse Problem

Okay i've done the pc surgery again, remove all the things inside the casing and layed it all on the cardboard, this time it gotten worst. keyboard and mouse won't detect at all. so i decided to blame the motherboard and went to the computer shop where i brought it. i got the motherboard with memory & processor attached, videocard, and the harddisk.... only to find out that everything was working well, including the PS/2 port! now what did i missed? now i'm blaming the power supply, cause its the only thing that were left and untested. as i'm typing this post now, im using my Logitec Internet Pro Desktop Black, Keyboard & Mouse PS/2 in the office with no problems at all!

There's nothing left to be blame but the power supply...Is it possible for it to cause such erratic/unstable PS/2 port connection? I also notice it once while im testing, after the keyboard and mouse hanged up, i heard a tiny clicking inside the PSU then the entire system shut down itself, but i didn't mind that. This is a generic 450 watts that is included in the casing that i brought. So what do you think guys?

I've had a problem recently with my bluetooth keyboard and mouse. I recently reformatted my PC and it is since then that I have had problems.

The problem is that if I have left my computer on for a while, usually 1 hour +, often after a screensaver has been running; in other words I generally can't exit the screensaver and have to press and hold the power button in order to switch the computer off. When I switch the computer back on again everything works as normal.

I am not quite sure what has caused this, but I am almost certain that it is nothing to do with the batteries in my keyboard or mouse. I also don't think it is anything to do with the bluetooth adapter because the light on it keeps flashing, indicating that it is turned on.

How can I fix this problem?

Thanks in advance

Hi there, i am posting this request on behalf of a friend who is having a problem with his PC.

When he boots up to his desktop his USB mouse & keyboard do not work, the modem USB light is flashing red all the time.

During the boot up process his keyboard does work as he is able to access the Safe Mode screen, i got him to reboot under 'Last good configuration' but this still did not work.

At the initial boot up sequence, the keyboard and Mouse initially 'Light Up' but once they get to his desktop they are no longer working.

I am told he has not updated or installed anything recently...

Any idea's what may be causing this....?

I'm grateful for your help

Many Thanks

I have a HP Presario C700 laptop, OS Win 7 Home 32bit. I have been running a wireless Ihome full keyboard with side number pad and mouse for a little under a year. The wireless keyboard and mouse did worked fine. Then one day the wireless mouse stopped working. The wireless keyboard keep on working. I though the mouse died. So I was running an other wireless mouse (mouse only) and the laptop's built in keyboard until I got my next pay check.
Today I got a new (same model) wireless keyboard and mouse combo. This new keyboard and mouse are doing the same thing. The keyboard works but the mouse doesn't work. I unplugged the USB receiver and plugged the USB receiver into a dif laptop and both the keyboard and mouse work in the other laptop. Why is the wireless mouse that is pared up with the wireless keyboard not working in the Presario C700 laptop?
I need to fix this asap. There are certain prog's that won't run without the extended keyboard and number pad. How do I fix this? There must be a cliche somewere in the operating system.

A:Mouse and Keyboard problem during XP Install

Hey Mike welcome!

Did you turn off your keyboard and mouse or did they turn themselves off? Can you provide some computer specs like make, model, memory, hard drive, video card and operating system?

Hi,

Last few days I have problems with mouse and keyboard and their commands.

About week ago I installed new version of Windows 10 but it's was bugged too much and I done recovery to previous version of Windows 10.

Now everything is normal but I have problems with mouse and keyboard commands.

After I turn on the computer and after a few minutes mouse go wild.
When I click on one icon with a left click, it opens a menu that opens with right-click.
When I leaf on the Internet something with the middle button ( scroll ) it zoom page, although I do not touch the keyboard ( ctrl or alt ).
When I click left-click on one icon, it opens 10 folders on desktop not on my command even I opened one folder.
The keyboard does not respond at all and not work or when I write a keyboard something it writes on the computer that only after a few minutes.
Practically, the mouse and the keyboard go crazy at one time and I'm forced to restart computer.
Often it happens to mislead and to do it yourself, for example, once I click on the left or right mouse click, he starts to move open tabs alone.
Drivers are updated for both.
I tried to put them in another USB port, but it's the same.
I tried on another computer where they worked normally.
When I installed the bugged version of Windows 10 ( for me ), he asked me to update my driver and I updated, but later I returned the older version of Windows 10 and I do not know if the old driver came back but the previous version can not be r... Read more

I have a Logitech trackman wheel mouse and a HP Internet/Multimedia keyboard, they worked fine when using Windows 98 but I started having problems with them after I installed Windows XP. I also had a new motherboard installed when I had Win XP installed, so if that has anything to do with it please tell me. The problem is that when I try to load the software for the keyboard and the mouse, a sign always pops up saying that this software won't work on this computer. I still have the basic functions of both the mouse and the keyboard, but without installing the software I can't program and use the buttons on the keyboard or the middle button on the mouse. Is there a way to edit the registry to fix this, or something that I can download? PLEASE HELP.

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.

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.
