all inputs dead! no mouse, keyboard, anything.

Q: all inputs dead! no mouse, keyboard, anything.

I just installed Fedora core on the computer I built a few months ago. I did not try to boot into windows. The next day, I completely redid my room and moved my computer onto another wall. I booted it the day after and none of the inputs (PS/2, USB, FireWire) worked.
I pushed the power button, It started booting. It asked if I wanted to boot into windows or linux, I pushed the down arrow on my keyboard and nothing happened. Uh-Oh. It booted Windows by default and brought me to the Welcome screen. I looked at my mouse and was relieved to see its LED turn on. I clicked on my account, and logged in. (Thank God I don't have a password). I found that the keyboard still didn't work.
I looked on the back of the computer and saw that I was using a PS/2 keyboard. I proceded to plug in a USB keyboard, and it still didn't work. I unplugged the mouse and put the keyboard in its place. It still didn't work. I put the mouse back in, and the LED didn't come on.
I reset and put the keyboard in place of the mouse. I could then select options on the boot manager, but my mouse didn't work, and as soon as I unplugged the keyboard, the USB port stopped responding.

I have never, ever seen anything like this before. I tried cleaning the dust out of my computer (not much, I've only had it for about 3 months or so), and I still have the same problem. It sounds a little like a short, but even the ports in the PCI cards I have don't work. What's especially weird is that the monitor is working through all of this.

I am reluctant to disasemble and clean it.

Specs:
Pentium 4 3 Ghz 800Mhz bus
Asus P4P800SE mobo
A gig of ram
Maxtor 200 GB HDD
Nvidia GeForce 9800

Thanks!

Preferred Solution: all inputs dead! no mouse, keyboard, anything.

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.)

A: all inputs dead! no mouse, keyboard, anything.

Can you get into your BIOS setup utility?
Should be the DEL key at the ASUS AI Proactive POST overlay.
If not, read your motherboard manual for the procedure for reseting the CMOS, and then do so.

the other day my mouse stopped functioning, it didn't seem to be a mouse issue since the indicator light on the reciever still worked so i closed everything and restarted my computer.

problem persisted so i plugged in a generic optical mouse as a test. the problem continued.

i unplugged my keyboard and the problem still continues.

at this point i'm certain its in my software, but unsure where.

problem:

mouse commands suddenly don't function or lag.
internet will randomly go back pages when i attemt to click on something.
computer acts like there are ghost inputs even when using on screen keyboard.
computer just freezes up when more than one program is open.

Hey guys,

This problem came out of nowhere...I realized that flash drives weren't recognized by my computer. As my computer was shutting down, I got a BSOD saying that AppleCharger.sys was the culprit. After researching the problem, I restarted the computer - but now Windows didn't recognize any of my USB inputs. They work in the BIOS, but upon reaching my login screen (regular boot and safe mode), my mouse and keyboard don't work. I did a System Restore to a state 5 days ago, still doesn't work. Anyone have any ideas?...

Thanks in advance

A:Issue with USB inputs, can't use mouse or keyboard

You have a gigabyte motherboard? They have a utility to turn off the charging utility because it's a common culprit of bluescreens.

I would unplug the computer with your power cable, hold the power button for 10 seconds, and the reseat the cable and turn the PC back on.

Also reset BIOS to defaults and try again.

Hello! I've had this problem for a week now.

Sometimes when I run my computer for a longer duration my mouse and keyboard freeze with the screen, I can still hear sounds etc. Then all of the sudden the computer unfreezes and I can continue for a few seconds and experience another freeze. This might continue for a while but after some time the computer freezes again and doesnt unfreeze, I tried unplugging my mouse and then putting it back to the usb port in my motherboard, but this time the mouse doesnt power back on (the light on the bottom doesnt come on).
I havent gotten any error messages from this, this might be because I power my computer off before anything pops up.
Also one wierd thing that happend while this freezing occured was the fact that my cursor didnt change while moving it over hypertext or selecting text. Also the text selector cursor was bugged and it changed colours while moving it accross different colors.

One thing I might suspect is the fact that my CMOS battery is failing, I had a some kind of a corruption error with it earlier and fixed it by reseating the battery. The Motherboard I'm using is an Asus P8Z68-V LX

This is really wierd since sometimes I might be on skype and this happens and I still hear my friend. Just cant talk to him thought.

I hope this problem can be resolved, because it is really annoying and kinda stressfull since I wouldnt want my computer to fail.

-Tuukka

A:Computer freezes frequently, closing all inputs (mic, mouse, keyboard)

It sounds like a possible bad driver, or something became corrupt with either a video or sound driver. I would check and make sure that you have the most up-to-date drivers installed.

I have a problem. Its all fine during POST, no "keyboard not detected" msg

appearing, but I cant press delete or any other keys to get into BIOS setup.

Keyboard's "Num Lock" lights do not flash. Windows will load but both the keyboard and mouse is dead. Tried other keyboard with the same result. tried the keyboard on another PC - works fine.

Previously the windows had a pci.sys error - "pci.sys not found." ive transported the HD to another PC and reformats the HD, and installs a fresh WINXP on it. Windows now loads fine on the new and old PC, but keyboard and mouse is dead on the old PC.

Have a USB adapter for keyboard but same result. tried the USB ports, both 2 ports on back of PC, and 2 other ports on casing (front). So i guess shouldnt be a problem with the ports, because ive just changed the casing to new and the front ports are fresh,never been used.

System details:
winxp
AMD duron 750MHz
mobo EPOX EP-8KTA2
128MB SDRAM PC133
PS2 keyboard with USB adapter.
ps2 mouse.

some guy suggested flashing the BIOS, but i do know how to that when i cant get my keyboard and mouse to work.

maybe, and just maybe, my PS2 keyboard and PS2 mouse ports are broken and the USB keyboard setting in BIOS is not enabled. then how?

any takers?

Hello. Thanks in advance for your expertise.

Recently my mouse and keyboard have stopped working. I am running Windows XP Media Center Edition on a Dell Dimension machine. When I reboot the machine (using the button on the PC) it loads up and gets me to the user selection screen but I can't do anything at all. Here are a few notes that should help:


I have tried hooking up multiple keyboards and mouses. None work (so I know it's not an issue with them as they work fine on my laptop)
I only have USB connections, no PS2 connections on my PC at all so I can't try a PS2 Mouse or Keyboard
I have tried ONLY plugging in the mouse or ONLY the keyboard and neither work
The Optical mouse lights up for about ten seconds then turns off if I unplug it and plug it back in. Even with the optical light on, the mouse doesn't move on the screen.
While loading, at the Dell screen where it says "Press F2 to enter Setup" the keyboard still doesn't work. So I can't get into BIOS nor can I start the machine in safe mode.

So here are my questions:

What do I do about this?
Can I install either new USB inputs or PS2 inputs without being able to use a mouse or keyboard or even load Windows (can't get past user/login screen)?
If I need to reload Windows, how do I get the data off of my harddrive?

THanks again,
Will
 

A:Dead Mouse and Keyboard - help

Reset the Bios from the Motherboard

ie:

Power cord out
Hold in the ON button for 30 secs, dispersing internal power
Side cover off (who knows, some of the Dell's are hard to work this simple part out)
Take out (remove) the button battery (there's a small clip top side)
Locate the reset jumper, and move it to pins 2 and 3 (it's probably in pins 1 and 2 at the moment)
Wait 10 secs (no need really, but good time to rest )

Then put the jumper back (ie to pins 1 and 2)
Put the cmos round button battery back in
Put the power cord back in (and everything else)

Fantastic, I have been running wn2k with no down time 4 a year and just when I need most, silly me decides to find out why some of those extra "helpful" net/media buttons on my cheap keyboard by asking 2K for the appropriate driver.

It warns me but I say OK and restart and POOF! no mouse or keyboard. Locked out. No kersor and I cant even press caps locked to show lite. (both work fine in my 2nd partition under 98)

The driver I picked was just the Micsoft enhanced (similar) kB I think.

Have tried Safe mode, Last Settings saved, Nope!

Tried dif keyboard, as you do, and no change.

Have read a couple of dif posts some saying remove Bios Battery for 5mins, others saying boot in DOS and bla bla...Im no good in DOS. (willing to keep trying)

Alot of the posts also say Logitec mouse was problem but dont have 1.

Can anyone direct me to something they may remember in this field.

Or can someone explain how I might fix using 98???????

Much appriciated, urgent work to finish.

Greetings!

A friend has a Gateway PC approx 5 yrs old running XP Home. It doesn't have any PS/2 ports or serial ports. It came with a keyboard where the USB mouse plugged into the USB keyboard.

When the computer is booted the keyboard & mouse are recognized. I can get into bios and the keyboard works. If I go to the safemode options screen the keyboard works to select options. If I boot from a CD the keyboard works to select options. But if I boot into safe mode (or any other available options) the keyboard and mouse are both dead at the login screen. I tried booting (from this same options screen) to a previous configuration that worked, but still no luck. Gateway tech support told him it's likely the motherboard and tried to sell him one for $400. I'm thinking drivers (maybe a virus...?) but can't get into windows without the keyboard & mouse. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Hello all,

The problem started when I rebooted my computer to install some software to let me access the college's wi-fi. When my computer turned back on I had absolutely no control from the built in keyboard or mouse (I am using a lenovo x60s on Vista Ultimate with the red button mouse). The only way I am able to use my computer (which otherwise works just fine btw) is by plugging in an external mouse and keyboard into the USB. I have uninstalled all of my college's software so I don't think that is the problem. WHAT SHOULD I DO, MIDTERMS ARE COMING UP!!!!!

One day when i turned on my inspiron 530 computer from DELL (Windows Vista), the computer was telling me that something was very wrong with my computer. Before "Setup", it was saying that with my permission it would set itself back in time to a time when it was working properly. I didnt see any sign of error prior to this so i said no, and did so for the next few days. Then one day, i said yes. The computer was working well for the rest of the day.

The next day, i turned on the computer and the Monitor has no signal from the mother-board, the mouse was dead and so was the keybord. The fans in the box were spinning very fast and very loud. There were lights on in the mother-board and there seemes to be an alarm going off inside the box.

I was cleaning and moving my pc, during which I disconnected many of the wires and cables to the pc. Now, for some reason, my mouse and keyboard don't work when I log into Media Center. I have two operating systems on my computer, the media center XP on one hard drive and XP Pro on another. The mouse and keyboard work fine in the XP Pro, and they work fine while selecting which operating system to use, but as soon as I log into Media Center, the indicator lights on both of them go out, and they stop working entirely. They are both connected via USB, but I've also tried connecting them both with a PS2 connection, and there is no change. The odd thing is that I don't even recieve any message that says there is no mouse or no keyboard connected, and unplugging and then plugging them in again also does nothing. I tried starting in safe-mode and from the last known good configuration, but neither of those has worked. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a really strange problem, after a while (1-2 minutes) Windows just seems to freeze, the monitor signal dies and so does the keyboard and mouse. This seems to be pretty much random and does not occur at a specific time. Safe mode works well without the problem. This problem occurs both during the installation and on the installed OS. I managed to install Windows using safe mode (multiple times). I have been running XP and Linux on the same machine for a long time without any problems.

I have tried to install it multiple (allot) times, using different CDs and USB memory, same result. Even different isos. The iso I'm using is from MSDNAA and it's CRC checked. I have removed all "extra" hardware, disabled BIOS integrated hardware and usb stuff. No luck. I only have 1 monitor connected so it's not a multiple monitor problem, even tried booth DVI connectors. Have installed all the latest updates and tried different nvidia drivers.

i have windows vista 32 bit and proceeded to install the recommended drivers to use it via a charging USB cable. Immediately after the installation my mouse and keyboard became dead/unresponsive. you guys might also like to know that they both became dead while the setup displayed that it was performing the following task "creating kernel" or something like that. Immediately after that phase finished all was lost. The keyboard and mouse are detected by bios, and key presses to get me in and around the bios and initiate safe mode work fine. At the moment i am checking to see that the hole I/O plate on my mobo arent dead, and also no response from USB's on the front either.

A:Dead Keyboard and Mouse Immediately after installing PS3 PC controller driver

Why not use system restore to roll back your system to before you tried to install the PS3 controller drivers? It's pretty obvious that something went wrong with the install. I haven't looked lately but last time I checked there were no offical PS3 controller drivers. The one that is floating around is a hacked driver and results may vary. The Xbox 360 controller does have an offical driver from Microsoft.

Yes I know this problem has been raised before and I have looked at and implemented as many of the solutions as I can find including ones from MSOFT
I use my PC as a media centre so going in and out of Hibernation is the norm. So far the only solution that always works is to unplug and replug the dongle.

To summarise what I have tried,
I've switched all the save power options off,
done all the suggestions in USB mouse unresponsive after hibernate mode
Tried using DEVCON to restart the hubs, tried using Devcon to restart the actual Keyboard and mouse,
I've even tried rebooting after a resume from hibernate but even that only works sometimes.

Some of the Devcon restarts etc require a reboot anyway so I'm not totally happy with that as a solution.

If there is no valid solution does anyone know a way to make the computer do a restart rather than a resume when it's coming back from hibernate as I suspect the USB hubs need a complete flush out.

The Msoft sites suggest that the problem doesn't go away with Windows 8, does anyone know if 8 does fix this as I have a licence. 10's not an option as there is no Media Centre available.

Any help will be appreciated

I recently got a pretty used Dell Latitude C600 for a friend. I've used it myself before so I can answer all questions immediately. The problem is that the small mouse in the middle of the keyboard (some people keep calling it a nipple?) seems to be broken. It moves on its own as if its bent or something. Eventually it'll stop moving on its own if you really mess with it for a few minutes. The person I bought it from suggested that he thought it was a driver issue but it seemed more hardware based to me. For now the person who owns the laptop is using a usb mouse but the sporadic inputs happen regardless. Is there anyway we can disable the nipple and/or any trackpad inputs. For instance Apple has a thing in the system preferences that lets you disable the trackpad when a mouse is present. Is there anything we can type on the command prompt or download to do this?
Thanks for you help
 

A:Sporadic Mouse Inputs

I have had the same problem with the eraser head mouse (that's what I call it, anyway) and found that it was dust under the eraser head. You can try blowing out the dust under the keyboard and see if that helps. Otherwise, you can turn it off by going to Control Panel ----> Mouse and then click on 'disable stick/pad when USB pointing device is present' (assuming that you will be using an external mouse off of your USB port.

Hello

I have a Big Problem with my Windows 7 Professional 32Bit.

I need to use some DOS Programs, one is a bigger Program in which I can scroll through lists and show some Data which is stored in Files within the Directory of that Program. The Amount of Data which is used is small compared to todays programs, usually all
files are only a few kilobytes large some maybe about 1 MByte. I created this Program myself using Turbo Pascal 7, I know that is old but still it is good. Since this program I made is big and complex and I am working on it since more than
10 years I can not just reprogram it, because this would need 10 years again.

Up to WinXP I never had any Problem with it so far.

With Windows 7 the Program itself is also working as it should and all functions are working fine.


The Problem is:
After pressing some buttons the Program seem to hang and is no longer responding to any keyboard inputs.
There is no certain function which causes that, it could be some scrolling or just entering of Text.

Trying to narrow down the issue I found out that my Program which seem to be frozen is actually
still running in the "waiting for keyboard input"-loop. Unfortunately there is no input recognized anymore.

Also there is no error-Message, not within my Program and not within Windows.

Switching to Windows the Keyboard and Mouse are working as they should.

A:Keyboard inputs multiple characters when I press one key

Have you tried cleaning your keyboard? Stickiness under keys can cause this same issue.

One User in the avira Forum tells that avast free records your keyboard inputs. Can anybody confirm this?

Not that i know of? Maybe a die hard avira fan giving bad press to Avast?
Do you have a link to the avira forum where this is said?.

Hi all,

Wondering if anyone on here could give me a couple of pointers on a rather large issue I'm having with my HP laptop (Vista 32bit), mainly the keyboard is inputting multiple characters on screen when i press only one key.

I have an Acer Aspire 3620 laptop. The thing is that when I type with this keyboard, it will often miss out certain key inputs or letters.

So for example, once every so often, I will type great and it show up as gret. Or when I press the spacebar, it won't input aspace.
Does anbody know how to fix this problem? It's after business hours now so I cannot contact Acer. I'm hoping to get a fix so I can use my laptop without any keyboard problems over the weekend. Thanks guys.
 

A:Acer Aspire3620 laptop keyboard not registering key inputs

I too am having headaches trying to restore the a/f/r/x/4 keys on an Acer TravelMate 4652. After a little research, it appears the connector design chosen by Acer is VERY poor, and a lot of us are plagued by the same thing. One site I visited recommended removing the keyboard from the unit and re-seating the FCC ribbon running between the keyboard and the motherboard. Apparently, this is highly effective on a lot of the Acers, but it didn't fix my problem. It's a little complicated and requires carefully pulling off the plastic strip across the top of the unit, but once understood, the procedure is fairly easy. Here's the link to this procedure
Good luck with it!

I have a Dell 5100 which is approximately 2 years old. When I switch on the mains supply there is usually a brief activation ( sounds like hard disk or fans ) & when I subsequently press the button on the front of the case the system starts up. At the moment this is not happening. There is no light showing on the keyboard, the red light that shines out from the base of the mouse does not appear. The power light shows amber on the monitor and pressing the button furthest left results in message "In power save mode, press any key on keyboard or move mouse".
So far I have tried removing all connections & powering up. I have also checked for loose boards & connections inside the case. Any ideas? Is this most likely to be a hardware problem?

For reasons beyond my understanding the system booted on the latest attempt. I cannot tell what the problem was - but it has made me wonder if I should try & get some maintenance cover !!

Recently my touchpad and mouse inputs have stopped functioning properly. They're basically registering too many inputs randomly for whatever I'm doing. Using the touchpad causes the cursor to swerve in weird directions. Trying to click on something might result in multiple clicks or even the webpage navigating to a previous page. Sometimes the webpage font will resize itself. General control is imprecise.
 
I'm currently using Windows 8.1
 
I ran a Windows Defender full system scan but it didn't find anything.
 
Any help is appreciated, thanks.

After about 1 minute the mouse scroll and keyboard stop working until I left click mouse. Tool bar on browser also greys out but comes back after left click. Video and sound also are choppy. Not sure if this is related. Flash keeps crashing. Any ideas whats wrong? Windows 7 pro. Asus desktop. This occurs on Firefox, Chrome and IE. This seemed to start after Microsoft update and Flash updates

A:Mouse scroll and keyboard stop working until left click of mouse

Hello mpmckee,

First run Antivirus, Malware, and Spyware scans. Remove anything the programs find.

Note: if you need some suggestions on which tools to use, let me know.

Afterwards, test functionally of mouse and keyboard.

If no change, run System Restore, choose a Restore point before the issue started.

Again test behavior of mouse and keyboard.

If the issue has been resolved, go ahead and reinstall windows Updates.

Keyboard - AK1L
Mouse - AM1L
Receiver - AR1L

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I got a wireless mouse Penguin Ambidextrous Vertical Mouse | Posturite. It is supposed to use generic windows 2.4 Ghz adapter. However, windows 7 is unable to find any drivers. The screenshot of device manager is appended. I tried various other ways e.g. take out other USB devices, reboot etc. I tried sfc /scannow . But the error persists. There is no usb.inf file in the C:\Windows . It works in Windows 8 machine but not in windows 7. other 2.4 Ghz mice work. The manufacturer says that they don't provide the drivers because the mouse uses generic drivers
Please advise what can be done.

Did you do a Search of the Windows Folder including subFolders and hidden Files? My Win7Ult has several such files but only 2 that are usb.inf only in subFolders of Windows, others have longer names but most appear to be associated with my AMD CPU/Gigabyte Motherboard setup.

Hey everyone! I just installed Star Wars Battlefront 2 on an Asus Vivotab 8 tablet running Windows 10 32 bit. It has a weird bug where the game will crash unless I have a keyboard plugged in through an otg cable or over bluetooth. Is there any way I could install a driver so it thinks I have a physical keyboard plugged in 24/7?

Also, if this is possible, is there anything similar I could install so it believes I have a mouse plugged in as well? Thanks!

I want to remove the monitor, basically gut it, and turn the keyboard and trackpad of my laptop into a keyboard with built-in mouse for my desktop. It's an old laptop that I was thinking about throwing away anyway, so I might as well turn it into something useful.

look at attachment.

I want be able to connect that to my desktop with USB and be able to use it as both keyboard and mouse (have both the keyboard and trackpad work)

My desktop is right next to my bed, so I sometimes swing the monitor around and put the keyboard and mouse on the bed. But it's damn hard to use a mouse when you have bedsheets and blankets and other stuff that's soft as a surface.

Also, I can't have any compatibility problems, it needs to work with all 3 systems in my house that I may want to connect it to. Mac OS, Windows XP/Vista, and Linux (Ubuntu and Fedora)
