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.

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?

My desktop PC has been playing up lately and refuses to hibernate however I only mention that in passing in case it has anything to do with my bigger problem which is that neither the keyboard or mouse will work although they both work if I plug them into the USB port on my laptop which I am now using. I have tried three different mice on the desktop including a PS/2 mouse but none seem to work either in Windows or prior to Windows being installed and hence I cannot boot into the BIOS page or attempt to fix this problem by booting to a Windows recovery disc (press any key to boot to CD) and I am stuck at the Windows log into accounts page with no hope of getting any further. For the record I can access files on the computer from this laptop which is on the same network so there doesn't seem to be anything else wrong with the desktop PC. Any suggestions gratefully appreciated as I am running out of ideas and patience!!

More or less as the title says.I've already tried every usb port.
Tried a Usb -> PS/2 adapter and that didn't work.
When the computer loads the keyboard seems to work, though when it reaches the password screen it somehow dies..
The mouse seems to work in the password screen and for about 30secs after the comp is loaded..then it dies...
I can now no longer get into my vista boot to change anything (unless there is a way to fix w/o mouse and keyboard)

Is there any possible fixes for this =D?

Is this a desktop or laptop? Have you tried safe mode? Is this at home or office? The easiest fix I have found for this type of issue is using remote desktop to the pc and allowing the drivers to install.

Ok, so the obvious question is are you plugging in the front or back of your PC?
Have you tried both (as the back usb are directly off your motherboard where as the front are attached to your case)?
Ooooh, only just realised you didnt state if they ARE usb or ps2 connections, this makes a BIG difference?!?

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.

And I know why....I was not supposed to Unplug it and Plug it in when the PC was on . But unfortunately I got this info only after doing it. So both keyboard and mouse are not working, I tried it on another PC. I got a spare Keyboard which is also of PS2 and thats not working with the PC. So this means the PS2 ports on my mobo are also gone.

I bought my USB keyboard from office and its woking fine now. I tried to connect the USB Keyboard using a PS2 adapter without any luck. So its almost certain that PS2 is gone.

Is there any workaround to bring it back to life .

A:PS2 Keyboard and Mouse Not Working Any More...

Hi mate!

Why bother doing it after all? You can just get a new cheap usb mouse/keyboard set...Even good ones come out really cheap nowdays.

Anyway if you want to use your old PS2 devices you can get a PS2 to USB adapter (If I got you right you already used the opposite, a USB to PS2 in order to check the ports...), they are really cheap and you will be able to use your old devices.

If the ports and/or controller are fried, unfortunately there is not much you can do. But just to make sure enter your BIOS and check if they are enabled in there. You never know with electronics...

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!

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.

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.

I have an HP desktop computer that i recently recived. The ps/2 mouse and keyboard are not working. I have uninstalled the mouse and keyboard drivers and restarted the computer. Once the computer loads up the mouse will work long enough to click on start and control panel. Then it will stop working.

I downloaded the drivers from the MB website and it will not let me install the drivers due to the drivers xp has is newer than those that i downloaded.

I uninstalled SP 3 to see if that was the problem and it still did not work. I reinstalled SP 2 and that did not help the problem either. I still cannot load the drivers from the manufactors website. When i try to uninstal the device and reboot windows the new driver is automaticly installed. The onoy other option i have not tried is formating the HDD and reinstalling windows. However that is not an option due to no money.

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.

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 - I have messed up the keyboard and mouse drivers on my Windows 10 installation, so now when I boot up I have no input possibilities. What are my options?
I don't have a "recovery" disk - but I do have a Windows 10 install USB.
I don't have any restore points.
I have tried restarting many times - with and without the keyboard and mouse attached.
How can I "reset" the input drivers?
Thanks.

We have been fighting a virus and it was a loosing battle. The computer did work, however. After moving the computer and hooking it back up, it didn't want to start. We pressed "F8" to start in Safe Mode. It started - but not is Safe Mode. When it did come up, the keyboard and mouse were not responding. We switched the them to be sure they weren't in wrong. They still aren't responding. We put ourlaptop mouse in the USB port and it works.

We need to get this system up and running. Please help

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.

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!

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!

P.S. If you were wondering how I was typing this I'm doing it on my iPod

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

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.
