Keyboard and mouse work only intermittently

I just bought a keyboard a few weeks ago, plugged it into my imac G3 and it worked fine. Now sometimes the mouse doesn't work, sometimes the keyboard doesn't work, and sometimes they both stop working. I plugged in my old keyboard and it worked fine. Do I have a defective keyboard?

We bought my daughter a Netbook for Christmas and she has been using it for a month. This morning the keyboard is not functioning. We've tried powering it off and back on again and the keyboard will work...

It's clearly a hardware problem. It looks like as soon as the temp of the computer rises, internal connections for keyboard and mouse fails. You must take it to warranty. In the meantime, you can workaround the issue plugging external usb keyboard and mouse.

A few weeks ago I bought an iMac, I've been using my LX6 without any issues and this morning it quit, cursor won't move and it's a fairly new unit. Changed batteries, hit the reset button and on/off. ...

open mouse folder inside control panel and check everything in all tabs.... definitely you have to work with keyboard to reach there , use tab and alt buttons to choose option,to check in acheckbox you have to press the alphabet which is underlined in a sentence near checkbox.

Gateway cordless mouse intermittent connection model MR-0610T ,,, came as a set with keyboard. keyboard connects fine, no problems, but mouse has to continually be reset after a few commands/minutes.

I was having the same problem then I ran across something on the Gateway sight saying to hold the connect button on the transmitter for 5 seconds, then the connect button on the mouse for 5 seconds. I just did this about 5 minutes ago but it seems to have fixed the problem.

Keyboard/Mouse Freezes System Sporadically

Wireless routers generally are 2.4 Ghz, as well as the wireless keyboard and mouse. I think there is interference from the router that causes the keyboard and mouse to hang. I had the same problem with my 2.4 Ghz cordless telephones and my new wireless router. Went to 5.8 Ghz telephone and the problem stopped. I'm not sure yet how to work around the keyboard/mouse issue.
