Memory / ps/2 problems

After 2 RMA's i finnally got my board to work. But, now when i try and boot with a mouse plugged in it will not boot at all. This can be easily fixed by using a usb mouse and is not a big problem. But i am having trouble with my memory. I have 3 sticks but i think that only one of the slots works. When i try any other combination of memory and slots besides a 512 in the first slot, it will still boot but no picture will appear on the screen. Any help is greatly appreciated thank you.

    Yes the board is new so the memory may be the problem. I have a 512, a 256, and a 128 all of which i think are different speeds. I know this is not a good idea but i have tried the 512 and the 256 in another computer and they both work. But when i try and boot the new motherboard with the 256 alone is does not work. I will see if i can borrow some memory from a friend and try his sticks. Thank you any more help is greatly appreciated.

    To sandrew, I am not very experienced as this is my first attempt at my own built, but i will try clearing cmos thank you

If it boots then you would get the bios check then windows boots up, if your's not getting a picture then it may be only getting as far as the bios then stopping, it sounds as if the memory may be the stumbling block as if i remember the board is new, unless this is a faulty unit as the ps2 port should work i think there is a stress break on the motherboard somewhere.

    can i add you may be wise clearing the cmos again if not already and trying again, on motherboard locate the J2H1 terminal and put jumper on pins 1-2 to clear then back to pins 2-3, then start pc up and press F2 or Del on start up and set the time and date, if you are able to get that far that is!

Supermicro x8sax memory bank issues

The X8SAX motherboard has 6 memory slots. Try booting with one memory stick in each slot to identify which memory bank (dimm slot) is giving you issues. If you are able to boot off of a good slot, check the BIOS version to make sure you have the latest installed (R 2.0b). It can be downloaded here: Super Micro Computer Inc Products Motherboards Xeon Boards X8SAX

If you are unable to get into the BIOS at all, check the warranty status and submit an RMA request to Supermicro:

Even though the mouse is plugged into the CPU, the curser isn't moving on the screen. The mouse was removed from an old desktop a couple of years ago to be used on another desktop and was working fine...

First of all what kind of mouse is it? USB (metal retangle) or PS/2 (round plug with small pins)
USB is plug and play (meaning you can plug it in anytime even with the computer on and it should start working)
PS/2 The computer needs to be off before you plug it in.
Also some computers you will need to enter BIOS and enable legacy support for PS/2 mice/keyboards
To enter BIOS, while the computer is first booting up press the key it asks for to enter setup/settings, generally it is F10, F11 or del. Look for legacy support and make sure it is enabled. Save and Exit BIOS.
Let me know if you need further assistance

A lot depends on where the keyboard and mouse are plugged in. I have seen in the past that the USB in the back works better than the front. Are these the original keyboard and mouse? If not, use the original until after Windows loads the desktop.

Dell Dimension 3100 e10 ...usb won't work

Does the system respond to boot keys (F2, F12) when the DELL logo appears? If so the problem is with Windows drivers and probably can be resolved by reinstalling or rolling back the drivers, but how? Do you have access to another keyboard? Does the system have PS/2 ports? Do you have access to a PS/2 keyboard or adapter? If boot keys work, you could also choose F8 for Last Known Good Config (XP) or System Restore (Vista).

Have you tried different ports (front if using back or visa-versa)?
Try using just keyboard or mouse to see if one has somehow shorted. Also check the ports for any sign of damage.

Keyboard want light up but mouse works

The buttons on the top (silver) are linked to your "Favorites" folder in Internet Explorer.

The buttons to the right of that are used for your media player (To skip tracks and adjust volumes, play pause etc)

The buttons on the left (from top to bottom) are:

1) My documents folder will open
2) MSN or Windows Live! Messenger will open
3) Your E-Mail will open (whatever your default email program is)
4) Calculator Opens
5) Windows Update will open

Now... In order for these you HAVE to have the drivers installed. If you didn't get a CD with your keyboard, you can download the drivers directly from Microsoft here:

Just fill in the drop-downs and press "Go", it should show you a link the the exact driver you need to install. Once it's been installed you can set up your favorites with the software that it installs.

Mouse wont work

You mouse does not work? First few things I would check is make sure your mouse is plugged in all the way if its a ps/2 style mouse check to make sure none of the pins are bent ps/2 style is round. If your mouse is usb try moving it to another usb port also make sure the mouse drivers/software is installed

Wont boot or post

Did you say that you CAN plug in a mouse or keyboard and the machine boots fine, or are you asking if you can do this? If you computer is freezing up at the BIOS screen then most likely you have a failing memory stick.

If you are familiar and comfortable doing so, try removing both sticks (if you have two) of ram. Make sure you have the battery removed and the power cord unplugged. Then try to boot up the machine without the RAM and with only the power cord plugged in. See if you get any type of message or response. Then, hold down the power button to turn the machine off again, remove the power cord, and try booting with just one stick of RAM at a time.

TMOUSE (01) error - Win 98 bootup

Try booting using the step-by-step confirmation instead of safe mode. Skip loading the mouse driver that is causing the error. You won't have a mouse when you get booted up but you can use keyboard commands to navigate everything while you try to reload drivers.

Wireless keyboard

wireless keyboards and in wireless mouse devices, use the following methods in the order that they appear in.

Method 1: Try different ports loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Warning If you have to change a PS/2 connection, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. Do not plug a PS/2 device in the PS/2 port while the computer is running.

To determine whether the problem is related to the ports on the computer, use only the two cables that are included with the wireless desktop receiver, or the single cable that is included with a mouse.
USB keyboard and USB mouse loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); If the USB cable is currently connected to a USB hub, disconnect the device from the hub, and then connect it to a USB port on the computer. If your device is already connected to a USB port on the computer, try to connect the device to a different USB port if one is available.

Note Only one USB connection to the computer is required, even if your device has two USB plugs. If the problem persists, disconnect other USB devices and connect only the USB plug from the receiver to a USB port on the computer.
PS/2 devices loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); If your devices are connected to PS/2 ports on the computer, verify that you have the following configurations: • Verify that the USB plug for your mouse is connected to the green USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the mouse PS/2 port on the computer. The mouse PS/2 port on the computer may also be green. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the mouse PS/2 port, see the documentation that came with the computer. • Verify that the USB plug for the keyboard is connected to the purple USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the keyboard PS/2 port on the computer. The keyboard PS/2 port on the computer may also be purple. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the keyboard PS/2 port, see the documentation that came with the computer.If you have to change your configuration, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. If your mouse or keyboard has both USB and PS/2 connections, try using the other connection.
PS/2 keyboard and USB mouse loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); Verify that the USB mouse is plugged in a USB port on the computer and that the purple keyboard PS/2 plug is connected to the purple PS/2 port on the computer. If you have to change the PS/2 connection, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer.

Method 2: Install fresh batteries loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Both the wireless keyboard and the wireless mouse rely on AA alkaline batteries for power. If the problem persists, install a fresh set of batteries in the device that you are experiencing problems with.

Method 3: Resynchronize your device to the receiver loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To resynchronize the mouse or keyboard to the receiver, follow these steps.

Note When you synchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, put the device near the receiver and put other wireless keyboards and mouse more than six feet away. 1. Press the button on the receiver, and then verify that the light on the receiver starts to blink. 2. If a dialog box appears on the screen in several seconds, follow the instructions that appear on the screen.

Otherwise, go to the next step. 3. Press and release the Connect Channel button on the bottom of your mouse or keyboard. 4. Check the green light on the receiver. A steady green light means the synchronization was successful. If the problem persists, try steps 1 through 4 again.

Clean the mouse lens loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); This problem may occur if you are using an optical or laser mouse and the lens on the mouse is dirty. To clean the lens of an optical or laser mouse, follow these steps: 1. Use a dry cloth to clean the bottom surface of the mouse. 2. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 3. If you see dust on the bottom of the mouse, use a can of pressurized de-ionized air to blow away the dust on the lens. 4. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 5. If the pressurized air canister is not available, blow dry air on the lenses by using your mouth one or two times. 6. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 7. If these steps do not resolve the problem, use a cotton bud to clean the lens without scratching it.
