Usually this happens whenthe software for the usb ports' controller is not as current as it should be.
check your computer manufacturers' website for and updated driver. USB 2.0 is what you are looking for. This can work in reverse also , if you are using a legacy USB device (mouse) and try to use USB 2.0 devices on the same controller it can cause problems as well. A new USB mouse is inexpensive, but always check the BIOS and make sure all USB ports are running and that the controller is enabled for them with current drivers.
If you post the computer make and model number i can be more specific with my advice.
Please post again if you need further assistance & thanks for using fixya..

Keyboard stopped working


http://www.ascendtech.us/emachines-kb-0705-ps-2-keyboard-black_i_kbdemkb0705bps2.aspx

Things I see here.
1) The second Keyboard you plugged wasn't any good either.

2) The PS/2 port for your keyboard on your motherboard, isn't any good anymore.
Computer off, plug it into the Mouse PS/2 port, and use a USB mouse.
BIOS will reset the I/O address for that PS/2 port, and set it for the Keyboard, when the computer is turned back on.

You may have to;
A) Turn the computer off
B) Unplug from power.

C) Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go of the Power On button. Do this same procedure two more times.

What you are doing is draining residual power, clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.

Keyboard plugged in, USB mouse plugged in, plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Still no?
Motherboard replacement.

You didn't unplug the old Keyboard, WITH the computer on, and plug the new Keyboard in, did you? It isn't a hot-swap device. The computer must be off when unplugging a mouse, or keyboard.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

I am having a problem with my computer (e-machines T5082). I does not recognize any devices plugged into the USB ports. Printer, cameras, Zune, ect. They have power because my speakers draw power from a...


This sometimes happens because it appears that the USBs develop some type of memory and it fills up the USB register. Uninstalling/deleting the USB ports and rescanning for them may resolve this.
Unplug all USB devices except for you Keyboard/Mouse. If you have a spare or your mouse is already a round PS2 instead of USB, this is better.
First thing I would go to my Device Manager. (XP - Right-click My Computer / Properties / Hardware tab at top / Device Manager *** Vista - just click your start button and start typing 'Device Manager' and it should show in your list.) Scroll to the bottom of the list where you see 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers'. Start right-clicking and deleting each individual one. If you have a USB mouse, when you lose control of it, plug it into a different port. You can also unplug your keyboard at this point. Continue until finished.
If your mouse was USB, you will have to push your power button for a moment to restart your computer and redetect all USB ports. If it is PS2, use your mouse and click on the 'Scan for hardware changes' icon at the top of the Device Manager screen. Hopefully this works.

Keyboard intermittent


There might be a problem with the keyboards PS2 port. You can bypass the PS2 port all together by buying a PS2 Y-adapter to usb port. This Y adapter will allow you to plug your PS2 mouse & keyboard into it and than you plug the other end into a free usb port. You do not have to plug the PS2 mouse in if you do not want to. Just plug in the keyboard. If your keyboard functions than there is a prolem with the keyboard's PS2 port. The PS2 Y-adapter to USB runs about $12.00 to $15.00. You can find one at Wallmart.

Power failure after connecting the mouse


Hi sambi,

If you are currently, working on PS2 mouse port which is the error occurred as stated in your problem. Try to used other PS2 mouse which working on the other pc maybe there was a short circuit on your old mouse. If the problem persist, You can use the alternative way by using USB port to plug your optical mouse.

Try to look for ps2 to usb port converter in the computer stores maybe you can still used your old mouse.

Hope this will be helpful to you.


Best Regards,
