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

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

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.

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'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 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'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?

So far I have tried to reinstall the Synaptics drivers from Lenovo, reinstall USB drivers from Lenovo, download a BIOS update, and update Logitech setpoint. None of those worked.  
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?
Thanks in advance!!

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?

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

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

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"..

That should just be the num lock light thing. Mine does that too; I set it to off in BIOS, but the light does still turn on until the login screen, only after which it turns off.

There shouldn't be any problem, unless it's not happening consistently.

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.

I have had some problems with my desktop computer running slow, so I ran some reg. cleaners, deleted out cookies and the history, deleted some old programs and ran a defragmenter on the computer. Now here is the Problem, when I restarted the computer everything seemed normal until I got the the screen where I needed to put my password to log in. My keyboard and mouse no longer worked. could someone tell me how to fix it?

A:Mouse and keyboard

Being a Desktop, this is odd. Are they both USB or PS/2? Additionally, are they both plugged into the back of the PC? Try plugging both into the front USB ports and check to see it they respond after a minute or so.

Let us know!

My mouse and keyboard have suddenly stopped working. I am currently stuck on the Dell Bios revision black screen with just f2-setup, and f12-boot menu options. I cannot enter either as like I said my mouse and keyboard are not responding.(these are connected via usb on the back of the desktop in the usb ports) My descktop is a dell inspiron 530s only 3 years old and I cant believe dell have told me its already out of warrenty.

I have disconnected everything, released the static etc, pluged it all back in, tried the other usb ports, this still doesnt seem to work. The mopuse and keyboard work on my laptop fine.

Any help to get at least the keyboard to work would be much appreciated :)

A:Mouse and keyboard

You could try a usb to serial converter (available from your local big box or online for a few dollars) to allow your kb to plug into the "old style" round (purple, green, I forget which one) port on the back of your puter. Then boot up into CMOS (hit delete as booting) and make sure "legacy USB" is set to AUTO or ENABLE. <-- checking this setting is the primary goal.

If you are familiar with the internals of your box, you could reset your CMOS first to see if a restoration to factory seetings allows you to get into CMOS. But if you're not familiar with how to do that, then don't =)

Good luck!!!

Im building a gaming rig and was trying to decide on a keyboard and mouse and wanted them wireless, I've never used a wireless keyboard or mouse and wanted to know if any of them are good for gaming, I've read in reviews that they can have delays (thats not good for gaming...LOL) Are there any out there that do not have delays? Anyone have this mouse? http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16826105157 And does anyone have a good suggestion on a keyboard?

Hello, I have been searching for help all over the internet for a while and cant quite find out what is wrong with my mouse & keyboard.

My mouse is plugged into the USB port and my keyboard is in the keyboard port.

Every other 30 seconds my mouse will start to move really laggy and my keyboard doesnt register till around 4 seconds while my mouse is lagging.

This problem doesn't occur while my modem is unplugged, my mouse and keyboard run perfectly with no internet connection.

Please help.

Is this a broadband USB modem? Can it also connect via ethernet?

Upfront, I have to admit its just a guess, but my hunch is that your keyboard is set up to move the mouse. The keyboard can be used in lieu of the mouse, in emergecy and maybe even years ago. Here is a link on how to set up the feature. I can only assume that this will give you a lead on how to change it back. Get back to us, its fun to guess and see if I am right.

As a present this year I am getting a Logitech G9 Laser Mouse and a Logitech G15 Keyboard, but I am not sure how I am to install this stuff, I had problems last time with a different mouse in that, on reboot the pointer would not work and I had a hell of alot of bother, resulting in a format, some will remember this, this time I want to get it right.

So when I get the goods, do I install the software off the disk for both the mouse and keyboard? or do I get the latest from the Net? and what gets installed first, hardware plugged in or software first?

The answers may seem obvious to most, but not to me as I am scared of cocking things up yet again, and I want things to go nice and smooth

I saw both the mouse on a leaflet that was in the box of the Crysis Game and only noticed it the other night and loved the looks of them and what it said they do, but installing hardware with software is not my strong point at all.

A:New Mouse and Keyboard

I would download the latest software for the mouse and keyboard cause the disc software would be old and the new software has fixes that the disc wouldn't. I plugged in my mouse before I even installed the drivers for it windows will install the generic drivers so you can use the keyboard and mouse.

My daughter has a real old compaq cp, recentley I brought it to my home and deleted a lot of unessary files and had it working pretty good. She took it home and the mouse and key board will not work. I brought the mouse she had been using plus another old one I had.
Today I could not get eight the mouse to show up or the keyboard working. I brought the 2 mouses home with me and while I could get the arrow to show up on one and the arrow and hour glass to show up neither would function. I am sure both of the mouse's are kaput, but do not understand the keyboard not working Any thoughts or clues would be appreciated.


A:Mouse/Keyboard and other?

Good Morning Java, that sounds like a pain!
What are the specs of that compaq, like is it a Pentium 100 or that era and does it have both keyboard and mouse as PS/2 type connectors. What operating system?
It was common for these devices to be plugged in the wrong holes.

Are you trying these mice in a different PS/2 machine to evaluate them.

Check the keyboard plug pins and the machine socket for corrosion, some of that era were very prone to it.

Cheers, qldit.

OK I have been using Windows 2000 for the past month on my Dell R400 , I got the latest drivers for my keyboard , logitech mouse, video card etc , all are windows 2000 drivers now.

Windows works great however when I boot up my mouse and keyboard do not respond and I must reboot upon which they work , this is annoyin as every time I boot up I have to reboot to get the mouse and keyboard to work.
Interestingly I installed windows 98 on the 2nd HD and it boots up fine evertime with no problem like that.

I checked to ensure all plugs are inserted properly

Do you have any suggestions I could try?

I attached a new mouse and keyboard--they came with the Dell Inspiron but I used the old keyboard for two years until now. Now, when I hit the windows10 icon in the lower left of the screen, nothing happens. I have to right click to shut down and the windows 10 screen does not appear. I appreciate any ideas.

Ive been using these cheap-as-chips microsoft standard wireless mouse keyboard for a while now.

When I built the PC these were only supposed to be used for a month or so. However, I found they werent actually as bad as I thought they would be so I ended up keeping them for quite some time (getting close to a year now)

Anywho, the mouse is starting it act up and one of the pegs on the back of the keyboard has snapped and I just want a new pair.

So, Im looking to spend about 60 (or less where possible) on a new mouse and keyboard.

Im completely lost as there seems to be so much choice on the market. Have you got any tips regarding mouse/keyboard buying or even better do you know of any particually good deals?

I do game, although Im no that serious (however schools almost out so Ill have 3 months in which im planning to play WoW for the majority ) so some additional buttons on the mouse would be useful. Optical ofcouse aswell. Prefribally wireless but not essentual.

Thanks alot,

Hi I got a problem.....suprise!!!

Recently, as I use my computer my mouse starts acting funny. At first it's fine but after awhile it acts weird. Sometimes the cursor will jump across the screen and I can only move it vertical on one side of the screen then goes back to normal. Then the scroll button won't work for a while..... then starts to work. When I play my Shooter games the guns switch on thier own as if I'm using the scroll button or the 12345 keys to change them. Sometimes my character can only look up or down for a while or I spin uncontrolably. THEN almost guatanteed when the above starts to happen (in a game or not) the Keyboard and Mouse DIE! I can't get them back. I have to restart.

Here is my spec.
- Windows XP, 3.5 GHZ P4, 1.5 GIG RAM. 120 Gig HD.
USB/ P/S2 Logitech wheel optical mouse (wired) not in USB slot P/S2
Microsoft Multimedia Keyboard (wired) in the keyboard slot P/S2

I have downloaded the latest drivers.

Any Sugs??? Has this happened to you?

A:Mouse and KeyBoard DIE!!!! Help!

I would delete the keyboard and mouse from Device Manager and reboot. XP will discover them and use XP drivers that normally work. But it sounds like you really should consider getting a gamepad for the PC that is designed for hard game use.

Hey all,
I have a friends PC, a gateway P4 2.6, winxp home. The mouse and keyboard up and died. He had a kvm switch, the electronic kind when it stopped functioning. I have tried usb, ps2 everything. The keyboard works on bootup, so I can get into bios etc... but when it gets to the windows screen, nothing. No mouse or keyboard. Safe mode is the same thing. Nothing. I have no idea wtf could cause this besides a fried MB. But that is unlikely. Ive reset bios by pulling the battery.... Really dont want to format and reinstall windows. On that note, I did try a repair, when it asks for admin password it wont accept it. Says invalid admin password.. The password IS windows admin password though. So I dont know what to make of it. Virus??? Im going crazy here. With no mouse even in safemode, and windows not accepting my admin password during repair, I am at wits end... ANY ideas?


A:No keyboard or mouse


I am using knoppix to get here... mouse and keyboard work fine in linux... so must be something corrupt in windows. But why not in safe mode? I cant figure that one out...

My mouse won't activate the slider up arrow and certain buttons on websites e.g. search. How can I use keyboard keys instead? (It does activate the down arrow). Have tried replacing the mouse.

A:Mouse or keyboard

For scrolling up/down, the up/down keys should do it anyway, without changing any settings or pressing any special key to activate it. If they don't, it's more than just a mouse problem - it's a keyboard problem too.

Your going to find it very hard to to perform any other functions on a website (or even in Windows) without a fully-functioning mouse and keyboard.
