Gateway SX2850-33: Both the wired keyboard and mouse lock up for no apparent reason sometimes after several hours. Reboot corrects the problem until next occurance.

are you sure the keyboard and mouse locking aren't a symptom of another problem? use your computer until it locks again, once it does restart the machine and when it loads press the windows key and the R key at the same time, in the run dialogue type eventvwr, look at the system and application events and look for red X's which are hard errors. then copy/paste the results here

L100 is stuck on the startup menu (black and white screen)Not ready my keyboard so cany reboot

What Startup Menu? Exactly what is on the screen? Has the computer completely booted to your Windows Desktop so that you see your icons and the Start Menu at the bottom left portion of the screen? if so why are you trying to use the keyboard? I think you should be using your mouse to point an click on something, then use the keyboard if needed.

Maybe your keyboard has gone bad and needs to be replaced. What type of keyboard connection do you have PS2 (serial) or USB? A USB keyboard has the square flat end that plugs into the computer, it can be pulled out and plugged back into the computer anytime because it is Plug and Play. The PS2 (serial) keyboard has a round end that plugs into the purple port in the computer. IT IS NOT PLUG AND PLAY. If you unplug it while the computer is on, your computer will freeze and not recognize the keyboard.You have to reboot anytime you unplug the PS2 (serial) type of keyboard.

Anyway, if your keyboard is frozen then maybe a virus or infection has hijacked it. Try booting into Safe Mode and see if it works.

Go to and in the search box type:"" (without the quotes). Click the link to goto the site and look on the left side when the site opens up and you will see agray area that says FIND SOFTWARE. In the white search box under FindSoftware type: "Virtual Keyboard" (without the quotes) and click themirror to search. When the search results come back look for FREE VIRTUALKEYBOARD. Download and Install it. It's totally FREE. Alsouncheck anything that pops up other than the license agreement during thedownload and installation. You only want the Free Keyboard and not theother junk.

You can use it to solve your keyboard problem. Just open up whatever it is youwant to type on such as the web address in an browser, a word document, etc.,then open the Free Virtual Keyboard and it will sit on top of whatever you weredoing. You can move it around so that it is not in your way also.

Keyboard might be bad or you might have a virus that has hijacked the keyboard.

Make sure the keyboard is plugged into the computer good. Then reboot the computer into Safe Mode and see if the Keyboard works.
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.

Keyboard freezes while typing

My computer does the same thing. I figured out, however, that rather than shutting the computer completely off and rebooting, I can just close the top. When I reopen the computer and go back to the document on which I was typing, I am then allowed to continue. Hope this helps.

Have a GCS634U KVM that keeps failing to switch. acts like it lost the keyboard

This GCS634U was designed to work with USB keyboards and mice.

First, you need to make sure that your using a direct USB keyboard (no PS/2 to USB adapter).

Second, connect the keyboard directly to the computer and make sure that it's working correctly.

Third, check the connection between the KVM switch and the computers. Try to connect the USB cables of your KVM into different USB ports of the computers.

Last, try to use different USB keyboard to see if the issue is the KVM or the keyboard.

Try to power cycle the KVM switch. Disconnect the KVM from the computers and make sure that there's no even one cable connected to the computers.

Leave the KVM switch disconnected for 10 minutes, then plug it back in. Reboot one computer first and wait until it's fully rebooted. Turn on the second one untill all computers are fully booted up.

If same problem occur, then you need to contact IOGEAR and have them RMA the device.

Thank you and good luck!

My monitor won't stay on every time I reboot the computer

might be the connection from your computer to your monitor. the cord may be malfunctioning. that's where the "analog" is coming from.

the video card could be bad.

or, the monitor itself could have a short.
when you mess with the buttons, it's "moving" something inside the monitor that is keeping that short from being a problem.

Usually computer keyboards are not locked. The problem which you're facing it due to the non-recognition of the keyboard by your computer. You should shut down your computer, switched off the power supply then remove the keyboard connectors and plug them again. Then you should on your computer and your problem will be solved.
If you'd still face problem then go to My Computer>Control Panel>Keyboard>Hardware settings> Troubleshoot. And your problem will be solved.


Remove any special drivers for your keyboard/mouse (if you have any drivers other than the normal windows drivers), then remove keyboard and mouse from the device manager.

Reboot the machine and let windows refind them and install the default mice/keyboard drivers. Don't mess with any other fancy drivers to support extra mouse buttons or anything until you know you are working at this "basic" level.

Leave it like this for a few days to see if it works ok. If this works, then my guess is its a driver very careful if you install additional drivers. If it still does not work ok, since you say you've tried the keyboard on other computers, then I might suspect the ps2 port has gone south. That would be bad, because that would require a motherboard RMA/change.
