Preferred Solution: USB Mouse is not working, yet keyboard is working

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.)

Before this round of trouble I discovered a problem with one of my graphics cards when they were in SLI with Blue screens and other nasty little things occuring when running Windows; I removed my secondary graphics card from the system to see if I could get a more stable OS, which I did.

I decided to test to see if the other graphics card running on it's own would lead to a stable system, however I was getting zeros on the VGA BIOS bootup screen and other problems before I even reached Windows Vista.

I did sucessfully boot into Vista and enter my password (using the keyboard) and move the mouse around, however once I had logged into my profile Vista began asking me if I wanted to install the drivers for the keyboard and mouse, I selected to update from the Internet and when Vista did not find any drivers for either device it disabled them.
Eventually I got both the keyboard and mouse functioning again by reinstalling Intellipoint pro and the Logitech setpoint.

While using the second graphics card I noted some distortions such as zeros appearing on the VGA BIOS screen during boot up, so I decided to switch out the graphics cards again, again this caused Vista to forget about my keyboard and mouse, I am however able to get onto Vista a combination of a cheap usb mouse I had laying around and the Vista on screen keyboard.

The fix I used previously (reinstalling of Intellipoint and Setpoint) has not works,I have also attempted to manually install the drivers through dev... Read more

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.

I've had my desktop for a few years and never had a problem.  Just recently, it has started showing a Keyboard Error message on a black screen when I boot it up.  The wireless keyboard and mouse do not work, although it appears to boot up correctly.  Since I have a password on my computer, I cannot log in or do anything.  When this happens, I've rebooted 2-3 times, and it the keyboard and mouse will finally start working.  I have moved the toggle to different USB ports and this does not appear to make a difference.  How do I prevent this from happening?

I'm not sure which forum I should put this in but here it is...My son has an HP laptop. Suddenly the mouse pad and keyboard aren't working.

I can go online and anywhere with the mouse pad but as soon as I click a button on the keyboard the mouse stops working and the keyboard won't do anything at all.

Yesterday I got on my computer everything is running fine. Today got on it for awhile and suddenly the USB keyboard and USB mouse lock up. I've tried restarting it and I can't get past the first screen. It says keyboard not present or something around those lines.

I plugged in a ps/2 keyboard and it works but my USB mouse will still not work. I've tried going into BIOS and making sure USB was enabled. Tried a system restore but for some reason it wont complete.

Went into safe mode and tried scanning it nothing came up but a couple tracking cookies.

Did a diagnostics through the f8 thing on start up.

Tested both the USB keyboard and mouse on another computer. They both work.

Also went into device manager and uninstalled all the USB stuff in there so it would reinstall on start up.

Nothing seems to work. Help would be appreciated!

A:keyboard and mouse not working

Hello andrewww. Welcome to the Forum.

Sounds like your USB ports are bad.

Of course, questions that came to my mind: New computer? Old? How long has it been running the OS? How long have the devices worked? I assume this is a desktop.
If you fill out your SYSTEM SPECS under your forum profile a lot of these questions would be answered and you would get better answers.

Have you tested other USB devices, like thumb drives, external drives?
Have you tested all of the USB ports?

Hi, my keyboard and mouse are not working on my computer. I have a Dell computer with USB Dell keyboard and mouse... Our computer stopped working so our IT guy fixed it, but when I turned on the computer it said it recognized a new device, but I couldn't run it through the wizard because the keyboard and mouse don't work! The IT guy cleared our computer, so I guess it would be like having a new computer. I know the keyboard and mouse work, I have changed them out with working ones. And the mouse lights up but the keyboard doesn't... I have tried all of the USB ports, front and back... Please help! I don't know what else to do!

I am having problems with a PS/2 keyboard and mouse not working. I can get them to work through a USB to PS/2 adapter but it doesn't work until Windows (XP) boots, so I can't get into the BIOS and I can't boot from CD.
It seems the PS/2 ports are fried, but using USB is only OK once Windows is up and running.
If I clear CMOS I can access the BIOS once but after changing to 'boot from CD' and 'save and exit' the keyboard stops working and I can't 'press any key to boot from CD'. Once the Windows screen comes up the mouse/keyboard works again. The motherboard is Abit KV-85 and I want to reinstall Windows after a bad virus attack.
Is there something in BIOS I have missed that will enable this USB mouse/keyboard to work?

I've recently set up my computer with windows 7, and all of a sudden after performing restart the mouse and keyboard fail to work after reaching the login screen. Basically the lights are on but nobody is home. Both the mouse and keyboard function fine in the BIOS and when selecting if I wish to boot up in safe mode etc. But once a password is required then kaput, I've tried the devices in other USB ports too with no success.

Worth mentioning at this stage I'm not gifted with computers so if a simplified answer could be given in answer to this I would be most grateful. Thanks in advance to anyone who replies to this post.

Sometimes the bios contains on and off USB for mouse and keyboard individually as well as(or) a legacy USB setting required for some devices. I have also seen when one device goes bad the other fails as well, but that was with a PS/2 keyboard and mouse.

I'm sorry if this thread has already been sorted but I can't find an answer to my particular problem.
I changed my keyboard and loaded the keyboard driver and since then the keyboard or mouse will not work.
I switch on the pc it boots ok but as I said KB or mouse will not work.
I shut down via power switch to force the pc to ask "start normally, safe mode etc" at this point I can use the keyboard, I then select any of the above, allow the PC to boot, and same problem.
I have tried to "Repair" with Vista disk but I have a Reminder program that is "ontop" so cannot get access to the Repair window because --- thats right KB and mouse will not work.
Can you give me any help please on how to access the control panel, as I feel sure that if I remove the KB driver all will be ok.
I have connected the KB for which I loaded the driver no go. Replaced KB with a no frills one, no go.
I was using a wireless mouse originally and have changed that also to a basic one.
Please help

A:Keyboard/mouse not working

Hello Still Learning, welcome.

Ok so a quick recap; you updated your driver, now neither kb nor mouse work. You tried a different kb and mouse and same problem. Reinstall of Vista did nothing.

If you boot in safe mode does the kb or mouse work? Even if just the mouse, you can fix it.

Okay so this is my wifes computer, its an old, Dell dimension 2400.

Okay, so the problem started with the USB drives not working properly... they would not recognize any new hardware, but still recognized things that had already been installed, and would work them just fine.

she tried to use microsofts website to solve the problem, but to use the "fix it for me" option, she had to download and instal the .net framework 2 or higher, so she installed 4 because it was the newest.

after she restarted her computer, her computer no longer recognized her PS/2 keyboard or mouse.

however, on start up, it will recognize the keyboard, because you can hit F2, F8 and F12 to go to the different menus, and use the keyboard just fine.
I have no clue what the problem is... but does anyone have anyide of how to fix it? not much you can do when the keyboard and mouse don't work.

thanks :3

also, any sugestions on how to fix the USB problem after the keyboard/mouse problem would be appreciated ^.^
 

A:PS/2 Keyboard and Mouse not working.

dells are hell for this issue, press delete or watch for the quick flash up on post saying something like press f12 for boot up configurations or bios
anyhow get to bios eventually, look for usb and keyboard support make sure its enabled

after go to dells utility which all dells have usually press f10 on start up to access full range of tools , there are usb port checks available there

if you end up back at square one with no improvmnet, go to device manager start run type devmgmt.msc check no red Xs in there or yellows

if that is ok then possible reinstallation required and/or your mobo is faulty (very common on dells)

The keyboard will work when booting, and both devices will work when I boot linux on the same computer, so I believe it to be a software problem.

Before doing anything, I would pull the drive out and connect it to the system you are using now. Copy/backup anything you do not want to lose.

Hey folks,

Any help???

A:HELP! Keyboard and Mouse Not Working!

What type of keyboard/mouse have you tried? Have they all bene USB or have you tried a regular PS/2 keyb/mouse?

Next question has to be can you get into the BIOS setup? This normally involves repeatedly hitting either del, F1, F12 or Ctrl-S as soon as your computer is turned on - if it isn't one of those keys then it should be listed somewhere on the POST screen (the first or second screen that comes up when your computer starts - it normally tells you about how mach RAM and what drives are in your computer). If you can get in there, the keyboard is still working, but you're having a driver problem in Windows.

If you either can't get into the BIOS using those keys or can't see what key to use on the startup screen, try overloading the keyboard buffer. As soon as your computer is turned on, hit as many keys on your keyboard as possible. I'm talking about mashing the keys for all you're worth. If it's working, then you should hear the computer's internal speaker start to beep warnings at you. Again, this is a sign your keyboard itself is working but you have driver problems in Windows.

If you've found the keyboard to be working, try starting Windows in Safe Mode - do this by hitting F8 whilst the computer is starting up. If done correctly, you should get a mune saying how you want to start up - you're looking for the Safe Mode option. Let us know if they're working in there.

Hi there,

I have a relatively new Dell computer that was, up until recently networked wih 4 other computers. My roommate who did the networking did something to the computer so that he could control everything from his laptop (when the password screen popped up, he had to use his wireless keyboard from his laptop to enter it into the Dell).

Here is my problem - my roommate moved out (and very far away) and when I go to turn on my Dell computer now, the password screen pops up, but the mouse and keyboard that is plugged in do not work. I've tried a USB keyboard and a PS2 keyboard and neither work.

I know the password, but is there anything I can do to enable my keyboard and mouse?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Keyboard and mouse not working

Only thing I can think of is to check the BIOS settings and I'm not even sure which settings you'd look for. Even though your roommate has moved, are you still in contact? Given the small amount of information you're probably able to post (i.e. if you're not able to log into your PC you can't very well tell us what the settings are) your roommate would probably be the best to give you advice.

Hey everyone,

I've tried a few forums and received no help so I'm hoping I've found my place..

I have a Logitech G11 keyboard and a Logitech G5 mouse. Both are USB. They worked fine up until about 3 weeks ago. Both the mouse and keyboard work perfectly fine during BIOS. I can run the setup commands and all that jazz fine. However, once windows boots (I'm running on Windows 7 Home) neither work. The lights on both aren't on and there is no response.

I've thought about the possibility of it being the USB ports but it is not, the keyboard and mouse work fine in other PCs, it detects my external harddrive when I plug it in, and USB keyboards and mice are equally unresponsive once windows is booted. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

PS, if it is a driver problem, how am I supposed to get new drivers without a working mouse or keyboard? This is an aggravating problem because I've replaced every piece of hardware inside my case in the last 6 months except my video card, and some small problem like this always seems to keep my machine from working at all.

When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.

I also tried safe mode, debug mode and other possible start up options. Everything works in BIOS and also when I boot W10, but in XP keyboard and mouse are not responding. What options do I have?
I tried searching for PS2 mouse, but could find any in two local stores. Just 20 different USB or wireless mices.
 
Now I am thinking about ordering PS2 mouse, but if the PS2 ports are not working either, what to do?

Please help! I changed my keyboard from the generic ps2 to orteck (which is my brand of keyboard) I prompted windows to go out and check for an updated driver. It was not digitally signitured. I said go for it and when I rebooted I have keybord in dos but not in gui mode. I also lost my ps2 mouse. I am running window 2k and tried last known configuration. I have tried using a serial mouse, I have tried using a serial connection to the keyboard, I have tried using a usb mouse but cannot configure it in windows. Please does anyone know what to do. I have tried connecting to a hub but cannot get into the pc with my laptop because nothing is configured. Will Windows repair work? Is there a way to put different drivers into Dos?
I am out of my mind!!

P.S. I also do not have an erd.

What can i do? My mouse and keyboard isn't working at the opening of windows (where i login and everything) and i've already try replacing the mouse and keyboards, yet it did not solve the issue.

-i try to reinstall windows 7 (didn't work)
-However i was able to open safe mode to change some settings, and still doesn't work.
-already try using other USB ports and yet nothing tend to happen

Note that: i was able to use my keyboard on BIO's but when it continues to the next screen (windows) it disconnects or turns off.
Also i would be happy to share the list of component, only if you guys really need it.

This pc is a dell ultra. The key board and mouse work on other computers so I know It is not that. I started up my computer this morning and neither the mouse or keyboard will do anything. I know i am getting power to the mouse because it is lightning up red on the bottom. Obviously the computer is unusable. How can i fix this?

Hi,
I just received a computer for free,
The Conputer is a 'Compaq Deskpro EN'
It is the model with a 733MHz P3 and 10GB HDD.
So; My USB keyboard and mouse does not respond in the already installed Windows XP OS, this means that I cannot type the password in the login screen. My Keyboard/Mouse works when in the BIOS, but nowhere else.
I have also tried using a USB to PS/2 adapter and still nothing.

How can I get them to work in XP?
Thanks for any replies :)

So 2 or so years ago one of my computers pooped out on me. If I am remembering correctly at first i got the google re-direct virus but eventually my mouse and keyboard stopped working entirely. They we're wireless, I gave them new batteries and still nothing. I even tried borrowing from my parents to see if it was just the wireless itself thru usb and still nothing. I remember downloading Norton Antivirus (yes, illegally-gasp, and a dumb move I know) just before it all happened (mouse/keyboard issues) so I'm not sure if thats what caused it and I honestly don't remember what all I did at that point to try and fix it. I'm guessing I d/l Norton to try and get rid of the virus but I think it made things worse and maybe it had a virus too? I think I tried setting the date back after the google issue...? At any rate my parents got me a new computer so I just stopped worrying about it but I'd like to get old pictures and videos off of my old one and tried again today to no avail. I tried with my new keyboard and mouse which are usb and nothing. It immediately takes me to the blue screen chkdsk thing and runs through the 5 steps. B/c the keyboard doesn't work I can't just bypass it but it never fully finishes the 5 steps. It gets to the 5th and doesn't get past 0 percent even after waiting 3 hours. Any idea what is wrong and how I could fix it? A lil help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

This would mean there is a problem with the HDD if it can't finish Check Disk. You can remove the HDD from the computer and attach it internally to a desktop computer, Via a USB Adapter or put it in USB Enclosure. If you can access the drive, be sure to do a thorough Anti-Virus scan on the drive before copying any files to the new computer or you will infect that computer too.

Once I get to my desktop I cannot use my keyboard, touchpad, or a mouse. So my computer is totally useless. I want to try a system restore but can't. I've tried starting in safe mode and it does the same thing. I pushed F12 to enter boot mode and I tested my mouse, keyboard, and system. They all checked out ok. The keyboard and mouse even operated in this mode but once I exited to the desktop they quit. (My CD also said it tested fine but I know this isn't true since it hasn't for sometime and I think I just need to repair the driver for it.)

Please any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!

A:Please help, keyboard and mouse not working

Hi cbspon,See if any of these things will help you further:Go into the BIOS by hitting the Del key during bootup. Click down to PnP/PCI and hit enter. Then check if the "Resources controlled by" is set to Auto. If not, set it to Auto. Then "Esc" back to the previous menu and select "User Password". See if it is set or disabled or requires an entry.Are you using a ps/2 mouse/keyboard or usb? Does the alternative work?If the above doesn't help, you may wish to replace or refresh the CMOS battery. This step can involve losing all your settings, so you may wish to read more about this step before taking it. For laptops this is not as straightforward as for towers and desktops. Please see these two articles: http://murfsgarage.cybertechhelp.com/cmos.htmhttp://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000976.htmZllio

I have installed Windows 8 Release Preview for a month. I installed this OS normally without any problem during installation and I used hardwares normally. I But now, my mouse, keyboard and all USB plugins don't work. When I start my computer, the light on my keyboard turn on and then off when Windows is starting.

3,i bought a pci ps/2 card but the ps/2 mouse and keyboard do not work.

Hi,

While trying to correct a CD/DVDRW drive fault, I have deleted Upper/lower filters in the registry editor which means now there is absolutely no response from the keyboard/mouse. Because of this I cant obviously perform a system restore and I have repeatedly tried restoring to a good configuration point with no results.
My OS is Windows XP home edition and the computer itself is an Acer Aspire T120E.
Any help is greatly appreciated as I have a 3D building model which I have spent a fortnight creating which is due soon for a college project and I cant access it! oops! lol

A:Keyboard/Mouse not working in OS

Oops! - sounds like you deleted the wrong filter references!

All I can suggest you try now is a "Repair Install" using the Windows XP CD (borrow one if you don't have one, but it must be the same version with same service pack):
