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.)


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)

A:I want to turn my laptop keyboard and trackpad into an all-in-one keyboard and mouse

I purchase this Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series 15.6 Inch Laptop last December and it was great to allow me to interchange the use of touch screen and keyboard with mouse. Suddenly a couple weeks ago, the keyboard and mouse were not recognized by the system when I turned on the laptop. I got the touch screen working but I need to use keyboard and mouse most. Any advice on how to fix it?
Many thanks! Jade.

I am new to this forum. I have a HP dx2200 desktop with Windows XP SP3. Two weeks ago the problem starts. For the first time mouse and keyboard will get freeze for some time and will be fine soon. Later when the mouse connect then both will get struck. Now i tried to repair, but couldn't; so i formatted the PC and still now the problem exists. Now i connected the old IBM ball mouse, and is working fine. But i can not connect the Ps2 optical scroll mouse. Even USB ports also not working fine on my system.

Expecting a good reply.

Go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager are there any devices with yellow flags? If so, these devices need to have drivers installed. Regardless, download the Chipset driver from the HP site and any other drivers that are required in Device Manager.

Hello, this is my first post on these forums

My problem is that after using my dell mouse and keyboard for upwards of 2 years now, my keyboard has stopped working - despite changing batteries and ensuring they are properly working. My mouse is working fine wirelessly.

I have Googled my problem a dozen times, so far i have found that i need to access something called a 'BIOS' which i have no idea how i can find this, or what to do with it.

Please help!!

I am a complete computer novice, please don't ask for my system's details (without pointing me in the right direction to find them), because i simply won't know them!

It's a pretty specific problem.

For some time I've had issues with windows forgetting or losing connection to both the mouse and keyboard about a minute after windows started up. It would usually work after restarting, but would show up again about once in every 10 startups.

Tried to fix it by uninstalling all USB components through the device manager, but now this (other?) issue hits me instead.

Whenever my mouse and keyboard are both connected in the back of the PC, they screw up each others functionality. I can have the mouse plugged in and working, but when I plug in the keyboard, they both start flashing their lights, and stop working, and vice versa with the keyboard plugged in and then connect the mouse.

Neither of them seem to mind the USB headset, which is also plugged into the back of the PC. Also it doesn't matter if I use the USB 3 sockets or the regular USB 2 ones - I've tried all possible options: Headset disconnected, mouse and keyboard still hate each other. 1 in USB 3 and the other in USB 2. Both in USB 3, and so on and so fourth.

I have a temporary workaround in using the USB port in front of the machine for either mouse or keyboard and the other still plugged into the back. That's the only way I can get them to play nicely with each other.

However, I prefer not to use the front, cus I'm afraid I will damage the port and/or cable, if I hit it with my knee or something.

I've attached a DxDiag file for spec and system information.

A:Can't connect both mouse and keyboard in USB ports in back of pc

It sounds like your USB ports are suffering from "power starvation", meaning that the real or resultant voltage exceeds the ports capability."Each USB port is capable of delivering 500mA @ 5Volts max and each port has built in semiconductor fuse that disconnects when external device power drain exceeds rated power output. This fuse will heal itself once the offending device disconnects. This fuse inherits tolerance of 5-10% of 500mA plus or minus. That means it could be disconnecting either on 450mA or 550mA of current drain."
Now a standard keyboard and mouse would not normally draw anything close to the limit. But some gaming keyboards and mice could draw more than normal.

More likely, one of those two devices could be defective - a short circuit say - and the result is the system thinks the current is exceeding the limit. Separating the two devices to 2 different USB controllers isolates the problem.

This is not necessarily the only problem, just the first that comes to mind.

You could test to prove or eliminate this idea by borrowing a standard keyboard and mouse from another (known working) system. Test to see if your system works with both 'new' devices, then with all the different combinations of 'new' and old devices.

Hopefully it is that, because otherwise we will have to start suspecting the motherboard.

I've read this is a common problem, but nothing has lead me to a conclusion. I'm working on a computer (Dell E310 with WMCE 2005) and my USB mouse and keyboard will not work (no PS2 ports ). I have made sure the USB ports are turned on in BIOS and have tried multiple mice and keyboards. The customer reports that theirs had worked fine, but mine will not. The weird thing is...they will work fine if I load a BootCD and run off of that. I have tried Safe Mode (every one), Debugging Mode, Last Good Config., everything I could think of and nothing works. I can't get to the Device Manager to even uninstall the USB devices in case they are corrupt. I am desperately in need of help here, thanks!!

A:USB keyboard and mouse-Dell Computer

Do you have PS/2 ports on your computer already? If so, all you may need is a very inexpensive PS/2 keyboard. I'd go to some mom/pop store and get the cheapest one available (or just borrow one). Be aware that some boards do not enable the PCI bus until after the system boots past the CMOS setup.

When you are able to get into the BIOS, enable legacy USB support.

Per thread title, i installed the usb 3.0 driver from the asus website and now my mouse and keyboard wont connect. I tried plugging them into every usb port on my motherboard and it just wont work. I noticed beforehand (Before i tried installing any drivers) when i looked in device manager they were set up automatically as PS/2 ports which i thought was strange. I cannot log into windows at this time since my keyboard and mouse wont connect. I am able to use the keyboard and mouse in my bios though. Is there a way i can uninstall the driver i installed using command prompt without logging into the computer? The only fix i can think of is reinstalling windows but i wanted to check with the forum before doing so. Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi everyone this is my first post so please go easy on me :)

I have in my office a Dell Dimension 5150 that had a faulty motherboard (blown capacitors x 8) so I got a new one exactly the same off the Bay.

My problem is that when booting into windows xp the found new hardware comes up to install everything this got so far and is stuck at audio device asking for me to click next which i cannot do because the keyboard or mouse does not work yet because they are not getting installed before everything else!!!

they work in the bios
they work using UBCD4win

there is no legacy support for usb option in the bios :(
there are no PS/2 on this tower and no serials either.

This problem existed before the replacement motherboard as the only keyboard and mouse that would work was the original ones in the original usb ports (already installed) any new usb ones tried to install but needed to click next at found new hardware wizard, catch 22

safe mode is exactly the same.

the only thing i can think of is a pci = ps/2 card if they exist but i want to get this dell out of my office quicker than waiting weeks for it to arrive.

Does anyone know why xp is insisting on manual installation of every device even my monitor apparently needs installing.

I have tried a few different usb keyboards and mice but same result.

I have the original dell ones here but they are so far down the cue or being installed

please any ideas help would be greatly appreciated.

I have tried deleting/re-installing devices and drivers, ran AVG & Malwarebytes programs, disk check, verified and updated bios, deleted all windows updates since problem, verified all programs are enabled in MSCONFIG.  
I do have this machine running both Windows XP and 7 as a dual boot.  WIndows XP works just fine.  I cannot get the devices to work in safe mode.  I believe that there is a registry issue but of coarse I have no backup.

Hi Lee247,Thanks for posting.It sounds like your USB drivers have not completely installed.  Be sure you are plugging your keyboard and mouse into the USB ports on the back side of the CPU and not the front. If neither are working, you will need to uninstall the drivers and reinstall them.

Also, if this is possible, is there anything similar I could install so it believes I have a mouse plugged in as well? Thanks!

Hi there, this is my first time posting, sorry if this is the wrong place for this kind of query!
My main set-up is a Dell latitude e4300 on a dock, with a wireless Bluetooth mouse and keyboard combo (also both Dell branded). This was all good until one day I was advised to update some drivers, some of which were to do with the Bluetooth equipment. After having done this, some of the programmable functions of the mouse and keyboard have stopped working (the multimedia buttons at the top of the keyboard, and the scroll wheel/side buttons of the mouse).
I checked the "Bluetooth Devices" in control panel and it is blank (all of my devices have disappeared, not just the keyboard/mouse). It can't seem to find any devices anymore, which is bizarre seeing as I wrote this entire post using the Bluetooth mouse and keyboard... I tried a program from Dell called "Setpoint" to try and solve this, but that doesn't recognise my mouse/keyboard either. I tried a system restore, but for some reason I was given an error message telling me the system restore couldn't be performed and that nothing was changed.
Any advice please? :(

Hi all,
I have a dell XPS2720 and so here is what happened.  
I installed PS Now app in my PC and i wanted to get my wireless controller to work so I downloaded and installed SCP driver installer. I ran it but then the computer stopped responding so I decided to do a hard reset.  I held the power button to restart then once the computer and windows started, i am unable to do anything anymore since I am stuck in the home screen.  This is the screen wherein when you press any key or click the mouse, the system prompts you to log in your password to unlock the screen.  
My mouse, keyboard and touchscreen are all not responsive.  To isolate the issue, i tried my unifying receiver on another PC and it is working.  I am thinking my drivers perhaps got messed up.
Can you help me?  What can i do given that i can't even log back in to the system.

I just received my 8910 two days ago, set up went well etc., but when I put it to sleep the mouse and keyboard (that came with the pc) will not wake it up. I have to push the power button and sometimes this will not wake it. Drivers and software are all up to date. Allow mouse to wake computer is checked in options. After spending 20 minutes on the phone waiting for tech service and being disconnected twice, I have almost given up. Thank you to anyone who might have a fix for this issue.

A:New Dell 8910 will not wake from sleep with mouse or keyboard.

Open Power Options by right clicking on the Start Button, select Change Settings of your Power Plan, Advanced settings and go through everything to set it how you like. Or even set up a new power plan. You can always set it back to the default settings. Read about Hibernation and other settings to decide how you want to set the plan. As you know, Hibernation and Hybrid Sleep requires a brief press of the power button to wake the computer. If a keypress won't work use the power button. I find that disabling Hibernation and never putting the hard drive to sleep works for me. I also set the power button to Hibernate so that is still available but not automatic. You decide how you want Power to work. If you use your desktop all day long, even turning off Sleep should be considered. You can always manually put the computer to Sleep or Hibernate.
Also change/check What the Power Button does and when to turn off the display.

I dusted off my old Dell Dimension 9200 desktop and put a fresh install of Windows 10 onto it...
All went well until the finish: at the Windows 10 login screen the USB keyboard and mouse are not recognized. They work fine at (and in) the BIOS -- it's Windows 10 that kills them. I'm guessing that W10 would install drivers once it launches but... I can't get past the login screen!
I've had a good old Google and peruse of these forums and I'm rapidly approaching the conclusion that the only way around this is to purchase a PS/2 add-in card and attach a PS/2 keyboard/mouse... but I obviously want to avoid that unless absolutely necessary.
So... anyone have any ideas? I can't find anything useful to enable/disable in the BIOS and I can't think of any other way around this chicken-and-egg situation, but I'm all ears!

Hi archibaldingtonb,
Thanks for posting.
Apologies that this computer is having difficulties with Windows 10.  Dell has not tested nor does it support running this machine with Windows 10, however some users have reported success. The problem becomes finding drivers.  Some users have successfully installed the Windows Vista or XP drivers and it has worked.  Other users have had better success with Windows 8.1.  Here is a blog from one of the Dell Community Rockstars which you may find helpful.

Other then replacing the batteries, trying to reset the transmitter, or seeing if you can go to where you got it and try to get a replacement you are probably out of luck. Might want to just verify you aren't too far away from the usb transmitter. as that can cause problems too.

I was on my computer last night and suddenly my keyboard and mouse stopped working.  I replaced the batteries on both and tried reconnecting to the receiver following the protocol (pressing the reset button on the device and within 15 seconds pressing the button on the receiver).  No luck.
1) I took the receiver, mouse, and keyboard and was able to use them on a difference computer, so they check out.
2) I tried different USB ports on the Dell and could not get it to work
3) I tried a wired USB mouse on the Dell and it did not work
Since I have turned the computer on and off trying to troublshoot this, I can only get to the initial login screen but I can't interact with the computer.  I think if I can interact with the computer I have a chance of troubleshooting and fixing this, but for now I am dead in the water.  thanks.

I have a Dell wireless mouse and a keyboard, both of which came with their own receiver. I would like to plug these two receivers into two different machines while being able to use both of the devices on them.  Ideally switching between machines(KVM like) would be nice but I am fine even by typing simultaneously on both of them. 

Is that possible?

I should clarify that both devices support Dell's "Dell Universal Receiver" technology, therefor I can pair both of them with only one dongle at a time. I can actually pair up to 6 devices per dongle.
I am not sure how I can keep them paired with both dongles at all times.

The DELL Inspiron 17R SE 7720of of my mother was used  since years and without problems with a wireless mouse and keyboard connected to.
But now, since I installed the drivers for a new "Brother DCP-L2500D" printer/scanner device, the wireless mouse and keyboard stopped working - more precisely: After a start/restart of Windows, the wireless mouse & keyboard are dysfunctional at the login screen. If then the printers USB connection is unplugged, the wireless mouse & keyboard are back operational after like 10 seconds.
I have tested all available USB ports and "permutated" the connections in all possible combinations - to no avail...
Any hint/idea how to fix this is highly welcome!

BTW: The laptops built-in keyboard and touch-pad are never affected and do work all the time.The OS is Windows 7 Home Professional (64bit).

I have a new laptop with a set up as such,
- lid closed, laptop on connected to external mouse and KB and large screen. This is for home working which I main use it for. Then disconnect and use as portable laptop when travelling.
I want to use the mouse or keyboard click to wake it up. All other LTs I have had do this.
There's a similar question but on a another series machine.
The obvious power mgt features do not seem to offer this.

I'm helping a friend with his laptop because since only a few days ago, the keyboard and mouse stopped working. I had him reboot it a few times but no effect.
I brought over a live linux CD and booted off of that, the touchpad mouse and keyboard worked perfectly.

So I'm guessing there is something with Windows that is stopping it from working. Laptop running Vista Home

Been searching the net and forums but haven't found a solid fix for this.

I occasionally wish I could plug other devices into my hp machine to use my hp laptop as a monitor, keyboard and mouse. I have a raspberry pi and it would be perfect for it. I wish my laptop had a toggle button/switch to change it from using as a laptop to using as a host for my pi. If the toggle was activated then the hdmi out would become an in and my usb would become an out to my pi.

A:Laptop reuse of monitor, keyboard and mouse

Yeah if only. HP does not make a curved all in one machine that is very cool and can be both a computer and a monitor. Has an HDMI in and an HDMI out. I am not aware of any other computer that does such a thing.

L​​aptop is sager np 2740. I connect my laptop to an external monitor and use an external keyboard and wireless mouse. ​​I have 3 usb ports in my laptop but 1 broke. B​​ecause of that, one of the ports i connect the usb for wireless mouse. ​​The other port is those port hub where i connect my keyboard and other things to it. thus i can connect few things to that usb one hub with multiple ports.

Hi, I'm new here and I really need some help with my laptop.
I have a Dell Inspiron 6400, running Windows XP Media Center Edition (I've had the laptop for almost 3 years) and recently I've been having problems with my wireless mouse, the laptop's keyboard and touch pad.
Recently (since last Tuesday) whenever I use my laptop's keyboard it lags very badly. It sometimes doesn't pick up letters and to type anything without missing letters I have to hold down a letter for a few seconds. Also my laptop's touch pad lags very badly as well. And lastly my wireless mouse lags, nowhere near as bad as the touch pad (a short pause every 2-3 seconds), but it's enough to be annoying, but the wireless keyboard is absolutely fine.

I've already done a few things, I've checked to see if any processes are using a lot of the CPU (none are), there's no unusual processes running either, I ran a virus scan and it found nothing, I ran chkdsk (/p and /r, neither found anything), and I replaced the ntoskrnl.exe file in my system32 folder (I was randomly getting errors saying that it was corrupt or missing when I turned on my laptop, but I think that fixed it), I've also plugged in a wired mouse in to my laptop and got the same lag as the wireless one.

Can anyone help me with this? I really need help


A:Wireless mouse lag and laptop keyboard and touch pad lag

Can't anyone help me?

Here's a little update.
The lag with the wireless mouse is gone, but the lag with everything else is still there.
I had to repair my windows install because I was randomly getting an error at start up saying that windows couldn't start because the ntoskrnl.exe file was missing or corrupted. Then it would only come up with a screen asking if I wanted to start safe mode, start windows normally, etc.
It came up with the ntoskrnl.exe error came up again after the repair, but it can start up now.
Please, someone help.
