Mouse and Keyboard won't load

Q: Mouse and Keyboard won't load

I had a wireless Logitec mouse/keyboard combo on my daughters computer. WAY too soon, the mouse crapped out, completely non functional (yes i checked the batteries lol). Now i cannot get any type of mouse or keyboard to work. The logitec keyboard works, but after logging in to the admin account from boot, it's useless. All I can get it to do is CTR ALT DEL where I can then use the arrow keys to manipulate it to shut down.

When I get to the admin account from boot, the found new hardware wizard pops up which would allow me to let XP install drivers (I'm just trying to use a generic mouse and keyboard at this point), but I don't know how to manipulate the cursor to get it to start using just the keyboard. No other mouse or keyboard will load.

I tried using a Dell XP re-install disk (it's a dell but I don't remember if I used the dell disk to install the XP) and do a repair. However, all it will do is give me the C: prompt. I also noticed after I tried that on the disk it says it doesn't install drivers anyways. I've never done a repair, or much of anything with XP, I kinda skipped that OS lol. I know how to do Vista, but obviously it is way different. Any idears? I really don't want to re-install the OS or get another OS for the thing, I'm building her a new computer for Christmas and am going to put Win7 on that one, i certainly don't want to buy a copy of Win7 to use on a Pent4 for a month lol only to have to buy it again to put on the new computer.............

Preferred Solution: Mouse and Keyboard won't load

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hello everyone,

While I was in the middle of using my system, all of a sudden the mouse and keyboard stopped working. I had no choice but to press the switch button to shut it down. I removed the battery, the power cable and all the input devices (Keyboard and mouse). After replacing them back I switched the machine ON, and I could see the flashing light on the Keybard, and the mouse light also ON (red). The memory count starts to the end, on a black screen, and then followed by the blue box at the bottom left of the screen where written "F1: Save Changes".

But I can't get rid of it this time because the Keyboard doesn't function/respond.

Machine Desktop HP 7100 CMT, Win7 ultimate 32bit, IE11, HP Keyboard PS/2, HP mouse PS/2.

I removed the HD into another machine, it works without any problem. Therefore, the problem seems NOt on the HDD side. All the keyboard and mouse work properly on other machines.

I changed the Keyboard to USB but the same result. I removed all the memory modules of 4GB in total, and replaced them with just one stick of 1GB, again no change, still can't move past the black screen to record the change, or to advance to Windows, or to access into BIOS setup.

I did this with and without HDD connected, but with the same result. I inserted the Installation disc into the DVD Drive for repair or recovery, it didn't make sense because it required the command "F1: Save Changes" must first be accomplished. But it doesn't go beyond t... Read more

A:System won't load keyboard and mouse at start


I'm stumped as well as normally I would suggest plugging in a PS/2 keyboard... Have you tried waiting to see if the message times out?

When you removed the battery, did you also press the power switch for 4-5 seconds to ensure that everything was powered down?

Hello guys.

I shall kindly ask for your help as so far any method of troubleshooting has failed me.

So whenever I enter a game, after a few seconds I start getting visual artifacts (black lines, etc). That might be ocasionally followed by general audio stuttering, as well as mouse and keyboard going completely undetected anymore by the system, even though, after this happens, I can still hear the sound playing in the background, apparently the system is doing fine.

My system also freezes pretty much completely when I use the Prime95 FFT test. I know Prime95 puts a lot of stress on the system, but complete hang up should not happen as far as I know?

Another thing I have noticed is download speeds are sometimes extremely slow (definitely slower than usual), even lagging on YT stream and such.

Event Viewer isn't helping me isolate the issue either.

PC was running fine and smooth until this started happening. Didn't change anything in it's configuration hardware or software (until this happened and I decided to format).

So far I:

- Reformatted my PC (running Windows 7).
- Made sure all my drivers are up to date.
- Tested my RAM with memtest x86 , turned up clean, 0 errors.
- Cleaned my PC of dust >_>.
- Made sure temperatures are in range.
- Set back CPU to default frequency (OCd it to 3.0 from 2.5 GHz / core, but this happened one or two years ago, everything went fine until now)
- Tried underclocking my GPU
- Tested with Prime95 FFT Test, PC hung up.
- Made sure ... Read more

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.

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.

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)

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 working with a Dell Dimension C521 PC. It came with a PCI-Express video card which apparently has failed, yet the motherboard itself has on-board video. The system will boot using this video output (as opposed to the card which produced nothing) but when it finally gets to windows the auto-detect driver routine kicks in and begins to detect the video card, prompting the user to "Continue Anyway" to finish installing unsigned drivers. Unfortunately this event takes place in front of the installation of the USB keyboard and mouse (times like these I wish it had PS/2 ). Anyway, whether I boot up into Safe Mode or normal a prompt comes up about installing drivers for the on-board chipset. I can't interact with it because the driver install routine for the keyboard/mouse becomes interrupted.

A:Dell Dimension C521; USB key/mouse driver load interrupted by video card driver load

Bump. I've been thinking... the only way I think this can be fixed is if I boot from a Linux CD or something similar and delete a particular set of drivers for this video card. It can't prompt you to install any drivers if they don't exist, right? But I don't know where to go to delete such files and prevent them from automatically trying to install themselves. Any ideas?

I already have the issue that when I put my E5570 to sleep and wake it up again that the keyboard and touchpad do not work. So I have disable the sleep options in the BIOS.
Now I run into different issues.Yesterday I booted the laptop and it hang on the DELL logo, After a while it stated that my EFI file would not be correct. Force reboot and it booted straight to Windows.
What's more annoying is the fact that the laptop boot, the DELL logo is shown and then the screens go's black, as if it's not connected. SO it looks like it hangs.BUT an external monitor through HDMI does work and show the windows logon.The keyboard and touchpad also do not work.External mouse and keyboard do work.
So pretty much I got a brick when I do not have external display/keyboard and mouse available.
When I reboot the laptop it works fine again.Am I the only one with this?Loads of issues with the laptop and wondering if I just have a faulty laptop...
Clean Windows 10 Pro install is done 5 times.Used the  DELL Command Update to install all drivers and patches.Issues keep existing...

I have been spending a lot of hours in troubleshooting this week.
Diagnostics are 100% ok.
Reinstalled Windows 10 about 15 times.Installing drivers by hands, installing drives trhough the dell update management application.The issues keeps existing.
To sum the them up:- Cold boot (laptop is off) to Windows. Keyboard/Touchpad do not work. (Reboot and they work again)- Resume from sleep. Keyboard/Touchpad do not work. (Reboot and the work again)
After I got the laptop I installed 32Gb of RAM and an 512Gb Samsung 950Pro PCIE M.2 NVME drive.The drive should be support as Dell states on the product page and in the manual that PCIE with NVME is supported.
"Advanced features, like industry-leading M.2 SATA and M.2 PCIe/NVME solid state drives, provide data transfer speeds up to 4x faster over traditional hard drivers. "
In order to get the drive visible and running on PCIe I had to disable the sata controller in the BIOS.This way the drive is detected in Windows as an PCIe NVME capable drive.
Just to verify if the issues I went back to default with the delivered 256Gb M.2 sata drive and 8Gb RAM.To install Windows I had to turn the Sata controller back on.
Installed the drivers manually updated WIndows and tested.The issues do NOT occur.
Retested by installing the drivers using the Dell Update Application.The issues do NOT occur.
So I figured out that the SATA controller somehow is the guilty part for all the issues.I mean when enabled to ACHI or RAID the sleep and non... Read more

I just ran my Microsoft Windows Update a couple of days ago which included Microsoft - Keyboard - Microsoft USB Dual Receiver Wireless Keyboard (Mouse and Keyboard Center). I think this is the culprit causing my problems. Now both my mousepad on my laptop and my mouse are active at the same time and I am unable to uninstall or turn off the mousepad. I've tried uninstall two different ways and neither worked after restarting and shutting down as per instructions. It is driving me crazy because it is extremely hard to type as the cursor will jump on the page and insert my typed letters into the wrong place. I have to get it uninstalled! Typing this is a nightmare and I am not dragging my thumbs on the pad or touching it in anyway. Any suggestions?

Also, when I go to Device Manager and I right click on the mouse and keyboards it says that I have the most up-to-date drivers.  I tried to do a System Restore, but Windows says that I do not have have any restore points created.  
Is my only option to reinstall windows?

I was wondering if any of you had any idea what is going on with my computer. In bios it has a whole list of keyboard errors that happen all the time. When I am typing an "s" will type "sasasasasasasasasasa" forever, a "w" will be "wqwqwqwqwqwqwqwq" and an "x" will type "xzxzxzxzxzxzxzxz" infinitely. Even If i don't type anything it will repeat "sasasasasasasasasasasasa". I've tried 3 keyboards with the same problem happening, and my mouse randomly quits working and I have to unplug and replug it for it to work. I have formatted my computer twice and still get the same problem, so it's not a virus. It does it even in setup. Also, even more annoying is the windows On-Screen keyboard I have to use to type, as it has the SAME problem and even opens random windows and programs with certain letters. At first I thought it was my USB controller going out, but if it was, then how come the windows On-Screen Keyboard still does this?

Any help would be amazing, this is so damn annoying. Have any of you heard of this? Should I just get a new motherboard since it might be a bad controller of some sort?

I recently installed Windows 7 on my friends computer. After several upgrades to his computer in order to bring his computer up to the Windows 7 requirements, Windows 7 will not load.

It installed fine, but after the bios loads, a weird screen with a multitude of symbols appears for 5 seconds, followed by an eternal black screen.

Strangely though, I have figured out that if I unplug the mouse and restart the computer, it starts fine, but as long as any mouse is plugged in, that screen appears. I have tried both my friends ps/2 mouse, a ps/2 mouse I have and my usb mouse, and when any of them are plugged in, that screen appears. I can start the computer with no mouse and plug my usb mouse in after Windows 7 loads and use the computer this way, but since my friends mouse is ps/2, it has to be plugged in when the computer is started in order to work, but this will cause that screen to appear again.

Computer specs:
Intel Pentium 4 @ 2.8Ghz

Some months ago I started noticing an issue, at certain times when the PC was under load, the mouse would start lagging briefly, for example when I would open Chrome. Sometimes I would get a brief stutter when playing Overwatch. The issue was never serious enough for me to investigate. Since that time I have made a fresh install of Windows 10.

Today I bought and tried playing the new Playerunknown's Battlegrounds. I suspect that this game is putting a cpu/memory stress on my computer that I haven't encountered before, and the mouse stutter is so severe the game is unplayable. I started investigating the issue.

Using an app to stress-test my computer, the CPU and the MEMORY stress tests are producing mouse stuttering that you can see in this video.

Since I was planning to upgrade my RAM, I went and bought a new kit of 2x 8GB Kingston memory (was 2x 4GB before), so I could safely rule out any problems with my memory.

This is my configuration:

OS: Windows 10
Motherboard: MSI Gaming z170i
CPU: Intel Core i5-6500
GPU: MSI GTX 960 Gaming 2G
RAM: 16GB Kingston HyperX DDR4 2666 Mhz
HDD: SSD Kingston HyperX FURY 240GB (60 GB free)
PSU: Corsair VS550
Mouse: Logitech G403

System is well cooled and temperatures are good. My dxdiag file

This problem appeared after I installed IE7. Basically any CPU intensive task, such as starting applications and running multiple CPU heavy tasks at a time makes my mouse stutter very badly. It's very difficult to steer the mouse. What makes things worse is that it appears also in CPU intensive games. So in FPS, I get jerky movement because of my mouse. I had an Logitech MX700 which I recently switched for an Razor DeathAdder, and both mice have exactly the same problem. It is definitely windows related.

I'd appreciate any ideas how to fix this problem. I wouldn't want to reinstall the whole system as I'll anyway do that in two months when I get a new pc, but until then this jerky mouse is terribly annoying.

My setup specs are:
Windows XP Pro SP2
Athlon Thunderbird 1,4GHz

Why are you unable to access the BIOS; is your computer not allowing you to?

Your BIOS is where you'll change the settings from "USB detect in Windows" to "USB detect in BIOS"..

I have looked in the bios everything is enabled, I tried to boot into safe mode and that doesn't work either, as soon as windows starts loading the mouse shuts off.

I tried repairing windows and when it reboots to re-install, the mouse light goes off again. Later, an error pops up looking for a file iaStor.sys, which i cannot locate because my mouse does not work.

A few things i did the same day:
1. Install avast anti virus, ran it on startup which found a couple obfus viruses that were deleted.
2. Installed advanced windows care V.
3. Used a USB device to copy these files on and off the computer

I installed both of these programs on the laptop I am using now with no problems.

The computer is a dell XPS 410, they will not support it because its a couple months out of warranty. I have seen this problem on my old dell and I reseted the CMOS to fix it. This did not work on this new problem. The forums of dell are no help either. I have seen many other forums on this issue but no answers that i could find.

My OS is Windows 10. My PC is an Averatec All-in-one. Both the mouse and keyboard came with the PC. Its pretty old but it still does what I need it to. Okay. Let's get this straight from the start. What I did was stupid. Okay now to the problem. I woke up this morning and started my computer. It started up just fine but when I tried to put in my password on the login page my wireless keyboard would not behave properly. I hit shift and It would print out a long string of capital L And so l tried putting in New batteries. And after that the keyboard would not work at all. So I tried rebooting. And still it wouldn't work. So I decided to go to settings then to, Bluetooth and other devices, once there I clicked on what I thought was my keyboard it said: USB RF Combo Device. Here comes the stupid part. It gave me the option to remove it. And so I did it. Now my wireless mouse won't work either. Thank God that I have an older mouse for backup and thank Windows for having an On-screen keyboard. I looked in the Device manager but I couldn't find them. Why did I do this? Because I was thinking that removing them, and reinstalling the keyboard would make my keyboard work. Well I can't figure out how to reinstall them. If any one could help me it would be greatly appreciated.

I recieved a call asking why the PC was beeping. I suggested it was overheating and to put a fan on it. A side panel was removed and the fan stopped the beeping.

This pc with win 98 came to me to install an additional cooling fan. I put the fan in, booted the PC and it does not detect either the mouse OR the keyboard.

It is a P2 and the cooling fan on the heat sink was also shot so I put another one on it although while it works it is not as "robust" as the original. Meaning it is physically not as "tall" (read thick) but the external dimensions are the same.

Both fans work fine but you can see my problem. I cannot even get into the BIOS setup although through out the boot process the lights on the keyboard do blink on two separate occasions.

I lost my computer to a blue screen. An IT guy got it running, but the
first time I booted from home, It went into this boot loop. I was
able to get to a command prompt and run some type of diagnostics.
This got me out of the loop, but when I now boot and get to
the password screen, my mouse and keyboard don't work and I can't
get any further.

I can boot from a separate diagnostic program and the mouse and keyboard work as long as the diagnostic program is running. Once I
leave it and continue the boot process, the mouse and keyboard quit
working again. They both plug into a usb port.

Any suggestions? Thanks

My son is having this issue with his computer, I think I am going to reload it, but you might want to try getting a PS2 mouse and keyboard. In the device manager he is missing the mouse drivers, by the way his keyboard does work. I tried to run SFC /scannow, but nothing changed. Hope this helps.

I am using windows vista and when I started the pc desktop the tower came on but the lcd screen did not, I noticed the light on the lcd monitor was orange and not green, I then noticed the mouse and keyboard were not on. It was working previously. I tried the mouse and keyboard in another tower and they worked. I then tried another mouse and keyboard in mine and they did not work. I cant seem to get the lcd monitor on without the mouse or keyboard. Any help please????

A:mouse and keyboard.

You confirmed the mouse and keyboard works in the other tower, but you didn't advise if you connected the monitor to the other tower to see if it works.

It's my guess it does work in the other tower.

As the title says I am in the market for a new keyboard and mouse. What I am looking for is to be able to use this mouse for gaming, web browsing, and anything else that you would use a mouse for. I would like a mouse that has great comfortability and this is one of the main importances that I need but don't forget that i'd like it to be good for FPS games.

Here are some of the current mice that I am looking at:
1. Razer Copperhead
2. Logitech G5

What I am looking for in a keyboard is also comfortability. In both of these that is one of the greatest things I want. I also would like a keyboard in which the keys feel good to type on. I would prefer that the keys not be extremely noisy and would be a joy to type on.

Here are some of the current keyboards that I am looking at:
1. Razer Tarantula
2. Logitech G15
3. Logitech G11
4. Saitek Gamers Keyboard
5. Saitek Eclipse II
6. Saitek Eclipse

The things I am looking for in a keyboard and mouse to consider greatly:
1. Comfortability
2. Browsing
3. Gaming
4. Feel of the object and joy to use

Any reply would be greatly appreciated and I am happy to be a new member in this forum and plan to come here for all of my computer related needs. Any other suggestions on products would also be greatly appreciated along with a reasoning behind why you suggested that product.

A:New Mouse and Keyboard Help

None of us could possibly tell you what is comfortable for you. It is your hands and ears!

Also, are you really that good of a gamer that the mouse/keyboard would make a difference?

Go to a store and try out different mice/keyboards. Once you have found a couple that feel and sound good enough for you, come back and ask if they are good for gaming.

Umm. Switch them back? I don't think that putting them to wrong ports should damage them in any way. But, if it really seems like something has broken, try another mouse ot keyboard to see if the ports are broken or the mouse and kb.
