Preferred Solution: USB Keyboard and Mouse problem

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.)


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
Asus P5P800VM Motherboard.

Does anybody have any ideas?

I have a pretty new Dell studio 15, about 2 months old. When I try to sign in neither the keyboard nor touchpad and buttons work. I have a mouse that I have to plug in and hit switch user. 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.

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?

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, I have downloaded from Microsoft my keyboard/mouse installs, since when starting computer Win7, it tells me my software for such is invalid to uninstall old, etc. However when going to Programs & trying to uninstall such items, it tells me I can't.

What exactly did you download from Microsoft?
Does the keyboard and mouse require drivers from the manufacturer?
If the keyboard and mouse a HID compliant you would uninstall the drivers in the Device Manager.

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

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.

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?

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

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:

Whenever i turn on the computer it loads up until normal until it comes to the user selection screen thing on xp. Then after about three seconds with no problems the cursor turns unresponsive and doesn't move and the keyboard does the same. I'm not sure if this is a hardware problem,software problem or any other 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.

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

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

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

Hey guys,

Firstly hello, how are you?
Basically, I've been running a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop with XP Media Centre Edition for around 2 1/2 years now and I've never had a single problem. However, I recently went away for a week and came back to discover that when I turned on the laptop there was a weird lag in the keys and touchpad as well as the DVD drive no longer being recognised.

The lag can best be described as skipping, and if I type too fast, some keys aren't recognised or they put the letters in the wrong order.

I've tried plugging in USB mice and keyboards and both have worked perfectly.

I really don't know what could have caused this as I neither installed any programs before or after my holiday. Any help on this would be really appreciated, thanks!

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.

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.

Hey guys, I am having major problems with my Laptop and was hoping someone might be able to help me as I can't find a solution anywhere. Its a Advent 7105 about 18 months old running on Windows XP and has worked pretty well apart from the occasional freeze until all of a sudden it completely froze (it seemed pretty hot) with the mouse in the centre of the screen and all of the keys totally frozen. I tried rebooting via the power button and windows loaded up fine but the mouse and all of the keys remained frozen. I have tried multiple further reboots but the problem remains. Even before windows loads all of the keys are frozen so I can't access safe mode or set-up etc. I have tried taking the battery out and the like but to no avail.

Any Ideas?
Help would be greatly appreciated!

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?

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.

make sure they are plugged into the correct plug.
unplug the keyboard, move outside, gently tap on one corner,
how much crud falls out...
1. it simply might need cleaned.
Blow and see if any lint appears, (see #1).
check for frays.. the cable might be going bad.

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.

Hey all. I got a new logitech mouse and keyboard and a linksys kvm switch. I installed the mouse and keyboard works fine then i hooked it up to kvm switch restart computer when windows XP loads up it sees my mouse as being a generic logitech mouse(cause my mouse is going into the kvm switch) so then it installs those drivers so then i can't use the Back and Forward buttons on the side of my mouse(8 button mouse).

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. I use ALT-F4 quite a bit and need this to work. Any ideas?

A:Mouse/Keyboard Problem With KVM Switch

I beleive you have to setup the Side buttons to do what you want. I know there are a bunch of options for them. It shoudl be in the mouse properties. As far as the k/b see if there is a F-lock key.

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.

A:Windows xp X64 Keyboard & mouse problem

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.

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.

Has anybody seen this before ?
