Preferred Solution: Registry Keyboard response

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.)

Hello Forums,

I am having a problem that has appeared after no problems with Crysis or any other games so far. I booted up Crysis, and I noticed that everytime I pressed the "w" key to move, it would respond about .5 seconds later. Moreover, if held down for extended periods of time (like 5 seconds), after releasing the key, I would still be moving in the same direction for anywhere between 5 and 10 seconds. During the time that it moves without me pressing it, no other keys on the keyboard respond. The same "sticking" of keys happens with any key on the keyboard, but not with the mouse.

I have checked the keyboard outside of Crysis, and it works fine (like in Word, forums, etc.). However, I tried Far Cry, and the same issue like with Crysis occured. now, I highly doubt that there is anything wrong with my keyboard, as I have played many PC games on it for a long while (inlcuding Crysis) with no problems

Btw, I have a wireless keyboard, with the latest drivers installed. I would greatly appreciate any help somebody could offer.

Sorry I forgot to mention that my keyboard is a Microsoft Dual Receiver Wireless Comfort Keyboard, if that helps anything.

All of a suddent today, my keyboard response became sluggish. Seems like I have to click on a link twice ... sometimes more ... before I get a response. This also happens on non-internet explorer apps such as windows explorer. I've been using Symantec Anti-Virus, Zone Labs Integrity Firewall, and Adaware for some time now. Just ran Adaware and rebooted. No difference. Can someone please take a look at my HijackThis log? Thank you very much in advance!

I see you are requesting assistance from Caslte Cops also.:

It's not wise to have different forums working the same log. It confuses you, and waste one or the other's time, since you'll choose either TSF or CC (or any other forum you have posted your log at).

If you're happy to take assistance from TSF, then request for your log to be closed at CC. Alternatively, you can take assistance from CC and we'll close this thread here.

I have noticed a delay in keyboard response when posting forum messages with Opera 11 for Mac. Opera 11.00 has some delay, but in Opera 11.01, that delay is extreme. If I type a sentence, I have to wait more than a minute before all the characters appear. Would it be the interaction between Opera and the operating system causing this, or would it be due to a particular setting in Opera?

A:Mac Opera 11 keyboard response

Being it changed with an update of the program, I'd be blaming the program. But why it would do that is beyond me, unless the program is doing something else in the background.

Situation as follows...

1) PS/2 keyboard works perfectly in DOS and LINUX (Knoppix)

2) After starting Win XP to the login screen, only "s" and arrow keys work. So does the mouse. That means I can only Restart / Shutdown. Same thing happens in SAFE mode.

3) Booted from Win XP CD, and tried Recovery Console - 1st attempt prompted me for Administrator password ( which I forgot and had to restart computer ). Then 2nd attempt at Recovery Console does not respond to the "R" key. Only allows "F3" function key for me to exit.

Would appreciate if someone can offer me a solution other than reformat and re-install
Win XP.

This is my first time using this forum, and i can only but prey for a quick response!

I rebooted my computer after installing bootvis (as i had problems with slow imapi and other important applications during boot). Suddenly my keyboard stopped working, and as i couldnt get past login screen (password) i had a big problem.
Tried a USB keyboard, but same problem.
I can enter bios and all just fine, but when login screen comes no buttons, not even num lock, caps lock or scroll lock responds (no lights).
Mouse works fine though... :suspiciou

PC specs :
MSI P965 Platinum socket 775.
PowerColor Radeon X1950XT 512MB
2 GB kingston ram DDR2 PC5300
1x 300 GB sata2 seagate hdd
1x 200 GB IDE seagate hdd
420W PSU
Labtec media keyboard
Microsoft habu

I thought it might be an Bootvis error (as it was the last thing i installed), but have find no indicators of this. The comp. should be malware and virus free, as i have gone through it often and kept safe.

Any suggestions?

My computer was working perfectly fine till yesterday. My wife was loading up Rosetta Stone when she realized the mic wasn't working. I told her to reboot the computer. The next thing you know, my mouse and keyboard have no response. In fact, the mouse and keyboard aren't lighting up at all now after Windows XP starts its boot sequence.

However, the keyboard does respond and the mouse lights up PRIOR to the XP boot sequence. For example, I can access my BIOS and boot to Safe Mode. But once I select Safe Mode, the keyboard and mouse immediately die once you see Windows XP drivers loading.

Worth noting is that after I boot into XP, I have disconnected my mouse and keyboard. XP will "beep" notifying me that devices have been disconnected. When I reconnect, the same "beep" will occur, notifying me that devices are being connected. So it's obvious that XP is detecting the devices.

I have tried the following:

1. Discharging static - I have unplugged all peripherals and the power cord and held the power button down for 30 seconds while unconnected. I then rebooted with only mouse, keyboard, power, and monitor plugged in. Still I get no response from keyboard or mouse.

2. Removing peripherals - I disconnected all non-essential USB connected devices, including my external hard drives, printer, speakers, and ethernet. The only devices now plugged in are my keyboard, mouse, monitor, and power cord.

3. Booting to Safe Mode - As stated above, my mo... Read more

A:USB Keyboard and Mouse No Response in XP Bootup

After tampering with it a little more, it seems that I'm experiencing some USB port errors. When I try plugging devices into the top 4 USB ports in XP, I hear a repetitive "beeping sound" that's not the correct one indicating a successful device detection.

When I plug my mouse and keyboard into the last two ports, I hear the "beep" of a successful device connection.

On my Dell Optiplex 745 I am having similar problem (http://forums.techguy.org/malware-r...s/716287-slow-performance-quad-core-xeon.html).
The computer stops responding to keyboard or mouse inputs for few milliseconds after every few seconds. Its not that the response is slow, wherein I expect whatever I type to appear after the momentory system hang. It actually either eats up couple of letters that I typed and takes double input for some other letters. I suspect it is because of patchlink update, but even after killing tth pddm.exe process from the task manager or machine restart I aam having same behaviour. It becomes exttremely difficult to type more than 2 sentences. It typically happens in the afternoon.
Even the mouse response is veery poor as the mouse moves in jerks and doees''t select the actual item I wish to select.
The computer is in company intranet with Symantec anti-virus corporate edition with very regular updates. So II dont suspect any virus attack.

The old computer's hard drive at our local Humane Society failed, so we opted for a rebuilt from our local computer shop in order to save money; we simply can't afford to buy all new software for a new computer.  The replacement is a Dell, running Windows Vista, and it has only USB ports. 
It would not respond to the USB keyboard that came with it; we had to haul it on back to the shop.  There, we tried a different keyboard and it worked.  That was about 45 days ago.
Yesterday, we moved some stuff around, and again all of a sudden the computer is not recognizing the keyboard.  All the USB ports are active; we determined this by plugging the mouse into each one.  The mouse lights up and responds.  I went to "Control Panel > hardware > USB wired keyboard and Windows Vista did not detect any problems.  We don't get any kind of error code; we simply can't type anything in.  (I am typing this request from my computer at home.) 
I know this issue has probably been addressed here before -- but I simply don't have time to browse through thousands of posts by the keyword "keyboard."  So how do we fix this?  Thanks in advance.

A:No keyboard response in Windows Vista

Download USBdeview. Remove the keyboard. Remove any vendor specific device that was previously attached including printers you do not recognize and USB flash drives. If this was a clean install of Vista you may not have many vendor specific devices. Do not remove any network or mouse driver but do remove any keyboards listed. Highlight the device and press the red X. You will need to do this using only your mouse. You should still be able to use the onscreen keyboard if needed. Reboot with the keyboard attached.

This is annoying me to no end.

I've gone ahead and leveraged the nice feature of keyboard shortcuts, so I can quickly access commonly used applications without having to "hunt and peck" with the mouse. I've got about 6 different applications linked with shortcuts.

However, I find that often when I invoke a shortcut, the response by Windows is VERY slow. First, the task bar becomes "busy" and unresponsive. Second, the application takes a relatively long time to launch. If I click on a desktop shortcut for the application, it launches within a second or two at the most.

Why this strange difference in launch time?

I have my network connection icons present in the system tray. Low and behold, I see them become very active when invoking my shortcuts. Is XP sending some "user" information to Microsoft? Is XP scanning the Internet for upgrades as a byproduct of a shortcut invocation?

I am wondering if there are steps I can take to reduce the shortcut response time. I usually don't have a "Start in" folder specified. Should I define one? Also, I define shortcuts on quick launch shortcuts located on the "All Programs" menu (and subgroups where appropriate). Is it better to have the keyboard shortcut defined on a quick launch shortcut in a specific location, like the desktop?

UPDATE: Bah! I went ahead and tried my suggestions. I put a quick launch shortcut on my desktop, specified a "start in" ... Read more

I bought a Sony Vaio E-Series SVE17812BCXB running Windows 8. After the last major windows update that occurred in Feburary '13, the keyboard/mouse stop responding once the fully loaded splash screen is presented (With the time and date, ect).

I know the keyboard and mouse are fully functioning as I can use them when I access the boot menu before the OS is loaded. Also, only the keyboard 'functions' work when the OS is loaded, such as adjusting the brightness of the monitor (fn+F5) and such, but nothing else.

I try to do a system restore and it fails on all available restore points. I try to do a manual repair using a bootable USB drive, and it just loads windows like normal. I'm at a loss on how to get this fixed and as of right now, I purchased an $800 paper-weight.

Has this occurred for anyone else?

Hi, I'm new on the forum, I've been searching through the various topics and can't seem to find anyone having the same problem as I am, so any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

The Problem:- My keyboard response slows down after I have been using my machine for a couple of hours. It gets so bad that typing anything over 8 characters long causes the comp to loose characters and then beep. Even after a restart the problem seem to there unless the machine is off for a long period of time, which seems a little odd! I have tried 2 different types of keyboard and both suffer from the problem.

I have re-installed Win XP recently so there isn't a lot of software on the machine at the moment and I still experience the problem.

The machine has the following specs:
Asus A7N8X Deluxe
AMD Barton XP2500+ (Bios settings FSB 166MHz Multiplyer 11.5)
1GB TwinMOS DDR PC3200
Radeon 9200 SE 64MB

The Notebook mentioned in the title has a very annoying problem. After boot it works fine. After a while it suddenly starts delaying the typing. Words will appear a second later after you "hacked" them into the keyboard.
So, I'm already trying to figure out the problem:

- it's not a problem occuring in only one app e.g. Word 2010. When it starts you will have it everywhere, even in notepad or in the browser address field.

- killing the explorer.exe and starting the process again makes the problem disappear again!

- The notebook was usually on batteries and in a powersaving mode called OFFICE, when it happened. I don't have enough data yet to say it wouldn't happen in ECO OFF mode either. Also I saw there were a bunch of new updates for windows 7 for the Intel HD 3000 graphics, yesterday. I'm a little afraid that it's due to powersaving. In OFFICE mode it gives maximum powersaving to the graphics.

I'd like to know what you guys think. I didn't try a bios update yet. But I could do this as one of the steps to narrow down the problem. What would be the most professional way to narrow the problem down? Do I have to study system or application logs right when the problem occurs?

Ah, maybe it's helpful to mention that the cursor/touchpad response and system performance stays fine, while the keyboard lags.

Thx for help,

Windows 7 freezes randomly (mouse and keyboard no response)
TAGS: Windows Windows 7Mice KeWindows 7 Share

This happens randomly. When the Windows freezes, my mouse can't move and my keyboard's cap lock is not functioning(both input devices have no response). Every time I am forced to shut down the PC by pressing the power button (restart button no response as well). After reboot, the Windows is running properly(rarely require to reboot more than once).

This problem is quite annoying and I do want to know the cause of this problem. In my opinion, I wonder if my Windows is infected by some kind of virus. However, there's no virus found after scanning by AVG Anti-Virus free and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

it would be appreciated if this problem could be solved. Thanks in advance!

A:Windows 7 freezes randomly (mouse and keyboard no response)

Can you post the make, and model of your computer. Also is it a laptop / desktop.

Have you tried running in safe mode, to see if the "freeze" still happens.

Somethings to look at, and, or try. Go to Start > Search then type compmgmt.msc double click on compmgmt.msc, look through Event Viewer for any errors, or warnings.

You might consider testing your hardware, RAM, and Hard Drive. To test your RAM, go to Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool download the Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip) extract the .zip to a folder, then burn the .iso using software like The Official ImgBurn Website if you don't have a program that burns .iso images. To a CD, then boot from CD Run Memtest on one stick of RAM at a time, any errors then the stick is bad, and needs to be replaced.

To test your hard drive, download Seatools,
SeaTools for DOS | Seagate
Burn to a CD, using imgburn, or other .iso burning software, then boot from CD run both short, and long tests

I just got a new toshiba satellite C55-A5302 laptop and I immediately encountered a problem. The keyboard was not responding but I noticed that if I held down the key long enough then it owuld respond. I was wondering if this was a problem with the drives or if it was a factory defect or if there was any easy fix for it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone,
I've been reading other posts and trying different things, but I am unable to stop the pop-ups. Also, after my pc has been on for a short time the mouse reaction becomes very slow. I have run Adaware and spybot, with no improvements. Here is my latest HT log:

A:[Solved] Pop-up troubles, coupled with poor keyboard and mouse response

Read other 16 answers

Great that I found this site!

Since two days ago I have had a strange trouble with IE 6.0: Entering data to form fields (including this message box) and scrolling pages up/down is extremely slow. Characters show approx. 2 - 5 seconds after when you have actually pressed the keys. Scrolling webpages especially ones having pictures (such as Ebay search results) is paintaking.

Typing web address on top of the screen and the connection work just fine. I have Windows ME and AntiVir 9 + Zonealarm running. I run IE's internal "repair process" but did not help here at all.

Please let me know what should I do to get rid of this trouble.

Thanks all, in advance.

First off, I am using a Samsung NP305E5A-A07US Laptop with Win 7 Home Premium.

I have been using EaseUS Todo Backup for awhile now, and I really like it, because it is so simple to make partition images, and then to restore them.

This morning, however, I went to restore my last good image, from the Boot Disk, but when it brought up the initial screen, I got no response when hitting the Enter Key to select the restor function.

I tried shutting down and booting into windows, then shutting down again, and booting back to the Boot Disk, but still not response from the keyboard in the initial screen.

It seems that possibly my keyboard is not responding when not in Windows, as all works fine there.

Any ideas????

A:No keyboard response when booting with EaseUs Todo Backup boot disk.

When you created the boot disc, did you boot with it and check to see if you could actually do a restore?

You might want to make a new boot disc and see if it works.

I have had problems with image boot discs not being able to restore an image even though they would boot.

My HDD had failed in my other desktop PC a few weeks ago so contacted my friend who I remembered was taking one of his old PC's apart.

He told me he had a spare HDD which he removed from the PC he was taking apart, which had XP on it & I was welcome to it if I wanted.

I installed the HDD into my PC and everything ran fine etc until it got to the Windows XP login screen. At this point I had no response whatsoever from my mouse & keyboard, so couldn't log in or anything.

I was just wondering whether anybody had any idea what is causing the keyboard & mouse to not respond.

P.s. The keyboard responds at the part where you can press F8/Delete to access the BIOS so it's not a faulty keyboard.


A:[SOLVED] No Response From Keyboard & Mouse When Setting Friend's HDD As Primary/Maste

Windows has to be set up on the system it's going to be used on. The drivers in your "new" HDD will have drivers relating to the other machine. Your best bet is to reformat this new drive and reinstall Windows.

Hello all, I am attempting to clean a 5 yr old netbook running Win 7 Starter for a friend.   I suspect a virus or something has disabled the required files; however, can not rule out that I was overzealous in cleaning out the registry manually a few nights ago. Have attempted to do 'Userinit' registry fix, failed.
Currently can boot 'F8', keyboard works fine doing anything there or in BIOS (F2). Dell factory Recovery Fails, (No System Restore points avail as they were corrupt)  until Windows booted and User Pw is required. I have limited command prompt knowledge as it has been years since using DOS.
* No keyboard/touchpad response when attempting to enter User Pw after booting normally or 'Safe mode' any of the options.*
Had run M$ Memory Diagnostics during recent operations (my attempt to possibly clear out anything hanging around).
This morning during boot 'F12' displayed Diagnostics for the 1st time I ever recall, so it is still running! {I was hoping to boot to a M$ Windows 7 install disc to try Startup Repair from the DVD-never got there yet.}
His email habits are to just open the next mail w/o looking to see if there are any attachments. Little box is also used for his online banking; checking statements (not sure if there were any $ transfers or not; however, I think he uses USPS MO or cash withdrawn from ATM).
Long story of cleaning out old junk, last Win Update was late 2013, same w/ Win Defender. Last M$ Def runs also ~ 2 1/2 years ago... Read more

Any help would be much appreciated

Hello Techspot!!!!

I have had my laptop for nearly 3 years but I wouldn't deem it to be a poor performance laptop. Recently I have been getting slow internet, poor keyboard response and slow scrolling, and it is very frustrating!!! I share the BT 3 homehub with good connection speed which was checked and found fine! My housemates laptop has started having the same problem as mine and I really want to fix this issue. The internet, keyboard and scrolling speeds vary everyday but overall are slow performers. I have looked through some of the threads and have seen people posting long threads of code etc :/ Is there anyone out there who has the time and patience to help me fix this problem? It would be most appreciated!!!

Many Thanks

First, get us

make/model of all PCs

and any extra router attached.
Is this a rather new ISP for you and/or are the PCs newish or older ones?

Did you every have good response? HOW long ago?

Hi, I'm used to an apple keyboard layout but I use a pc at work. I like to use my apple keyboard but my brain can't handle switching between command and control so frequently.

Does anyone know of a way to remap the control key to use the command (windows) button without administrative rights or changing the registry?

I was thinking this could possibly be done with hardware (with a usb interface). Is this possible?

Dose anybody have any idea what registry keys are associated with the mouse or keyboard, or how i might find this out. I'm pulling a prank on my friend, he's always paranoid about his computer, so i though i might mess with him abit by disabling his mouse or key board by modding or deleting these certain registry keys.
(not permanently obviously, its just a joke, ill restore the registry when I've had my share of laughs)

A:What registry keys are associated with the mouse and keyboard?

Hi and welcome to TSG.
Id be interested in your definition of friend.
Altering the registry on ones own system is risky unless you know what you are doing.
But on a friends system..maybe a joke too far.

Hello, I did something dumb. My computer wouldn't read my diskdrive, and I found were I can delete a registry key to make it work. But while in there I think I also accidentally deleted another registry key. When I restarted my computer neither my keyboard or mouse will work. I have no way to get into my computer to fix the problem. If I put in my XP CD (if I can find it) won't I have to click on something to fix the problem? How can I do that when I have no input device. Secondly, I think it works, but haven't been able to check if my first fix to fix the missing D drive worked, so I may not have a disk drive on my puter anyway, and I don't have a floppy disk drive either. I do have a memory stick. I'm a mess and I have a game to play! So, can I fix this, or should I put my tail between my legs and run to my nearest PC fix it guy.

Happy Thanksgiving also.

Before we do anything, does the keyboard work enough to get you into the BIOS, if so then before windows XP boots to the splash screen, just after the post screen, hold down F8 to go into the startup actions screen and choose "last known good config" and see if that works, if not try "safe mode"


Boot from the XP CD and go to the recovery console, your mouse and keyboard will work as XP isnt using the damaged drivers at this point, once in the recovery console enter "SFC /scannow" without the pr... Read more

i reformatted my computer and well, i forgot what to search for because all the search phrases that i've been using have brought me up nothing. anyways, before i reformatted, i'm FOR SURE, theres a registry hack to make it so when u press the windows key (start menu key) on your keyboard (the one with the windows symbol), it won't bring up the start menu on windows.

i need this for gaming because i sometimes press it and the game minimizes and i lose sound or the game will exit.

if someone can post how to do it again that would help.

Hi, my Fujitsu Siemens crashed and I had a new "old" driver installed. All af a sudden my CD/DVD drive diissapeared. The light on the cd slot that opens doesn/t light up anymore. I tried to fix the problem and erase the registry-key HKEY-LOCALMACHINE>System>CurrentControLset>Control>Class>{4D36E96F-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}>uPPERfILTERS.
I went to regedit and erased Every Upperfulter under this number I could get. Could not find the lower filters they spoke of. After rebooting, the mouse and keybord are not working. I cannot log in in Safe mode. I tried the dubble click of the tab key. Tried the Ctrl/Alt and delete key. Nothing. I need help. Also, after reinstalling the new driver, my computer kept on giving me a blue screen saying windows detect a problem and needs to start over. I cannot use a cd, because the cd rom doesn't open and there is no response even after opening the rom manually and inserting a cd. Please help. I am useing my husbands laptop to post these questions

A:editing registry now mouse and keyboard are not working

Unless someone knows what they are doing changing anything in a registry isnt really a good idea as it can cause a lot more problems then solve them.If the registry is damaged enough by cleaners etc, the only thing left to do is do a repair or a reinstall.It might be that the cd/dvd drive is toast and needs replaced and altering the registry isnt going to fix that.When you said the computer crashed im going to assume that another harddrive was installed.Changing harddrives isnt going to make a cd/dvd drive disappear that i know of unless the driver for the cd player was deleted somehow by accident.
