Keyboard and Mouse stopped working

I have a T5086 model, when I plugged in a USB cord for our GPS, both keyboard and mouse quit working, We have had no issues with the GPS and connecting previously, although I used a different USB cord this time. I've powered down and it does not fix the problem. I've connected them to my laptop and they work fine.

You have done an excellent job in test the components on a different system. If you want to use the items on the Emachine you may need to check with the manufacture of the GPS for any reported issues with certain manufacturers and find if they have any work around. You may also do the same with Emachine's. Personally, I purchased an Emachine unit when they first appeared on the market. I discovered that they had a tendency, like Dell, to build with proprietary rather than off the shelf hardware. I experienced compatibility problems with their hardware which I did not find elsewhere with either other manufacturers such as HP, Toshiba or from built-from--component PCs.
If you have found the workaround, ie. your notebook. You may be wise to save time and energy by limiting yourself to using these components on that unit.

How to switch from keyboard to mouse and back


Most PCs these days allow you to plug in and use both a keyboard and a mouse at the same time. To use the mouse, you just move it around; to use the keyboard, you just press the desired key. Unless you have a very unusual (e.g., homebuilt) PC, there's no "switch" to change from one input method to another. Look at the cords on both your mouse and the keyboard. If they both end in a small rectangular plug, then both use what is called "USB" to talk to the PC. Look for corresponding sockets on the PC (front and rear) and make sure both the keyboard and mouse are plugged in. If your keyboard does not have this style plug, it likely will have a round plug called a "PS/2." Look for a matching socket on the PC and make sure the cord is plugged in. Note the PS/2 plug has a flat side that must be lined up with the flat side on the socket.

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 have a Dell Inspiron ONE Desktop. My wireless mouse is working properly. However, my wireless keyboard is not functioning at all.


First, make sure that all of your batteries are good and working in all your wireless devices. I am assuming that this is a wireless mouse and keyboard combo. You may have to hook up a corded keyboard at first. Is this a usb wireless device or ps2 (round kind)? Once you have made sure that all your batteries are in good condition, plug all devices in before you start your computer. and be sure that they are in a good distance from the receiver. wait till your operating system has loaded and is either at the desktop or sign in with password window. Hold down the button on the receiver and keep it pressed down while you press the connect button on the keyboard then the mouse. Do not let go of the receiver button till you have connected both devices. Did this work? If keyboard still does not work, with the corded keyboard plugged in, first make sure you have all the software for your brand of keyboard and mouse combo. Once that is done, install it. Go to control panel..keyboard or if the software takes you to a set up area. Follow their prompts. This should work.

I have a Dell PC and I unplugged the mouse and the keyboard temporarily to clean it. When I plugged them both back into the tower and turned on the computer, neither one worked. I tried to restart, shut...


To try to resolve the issue:
1.) Will a different keyboard and mouse work (PS2 is the name of these connections)
If they will, damage to the keyboard and mouse is likely)
2.) Will a usb mouse and keyboard work?
If they do, then the problem is with the controller on the mobo, unlikley but MAY have been casued by static.

If the USB keyboard and mouse do not work, you have some problems with the motherboard

Try switching off and unplugging the computer, remove the coin shaped BIOS battery and plug in the keyboard and mouse, wait 2 minutes or so and put the battery back, replug in and power on, see if the bios detects the keyboard and mouse (you will see the bios screen flash up a message). If the computer does nOT detect the keyboard and mouse it will (or should) flash a message on the screen saying "no PS2 keyboard or mouse detected".

If this fails to detect the mouse and keyboard and you get no message or beeps, then there may be damage to the connector ports.

If you can get a USB keyboard and mouse to work, use them, Effecting a repair to the motherboard will not be a viable option

Wrirless keyboard


The mouse or keyboard does not work at all
If your wireless mouse or keyboard is not working properly, check the following:
  1. The mouse is designed to enter a suspend mode after 20 minutes of inactivity. Try to reactivate the mouse by clicking the left mouse button.
  2. If the underside of the mouse has an on/off switch, make sure to set the switch to the "On" position.
  3. Restarting the computer may resolve the problem, at least temporarily, so that other troubleshooting steps can be applied.
  4. Make sure that the keyboard and the mouse are within 100 centimeters (39 inches) of the receiver. If the receiver is attached to a cord, position it so that it is on the same level surface.
  5. Verify that the batteries are correctly installed in the keyboard and mouse. If possible, use a fresh set of alkaline batteries.
  6. If the receiver is a USB receiver, unplug it, wait for five seconds, and then plug it back in. Wait about five more seconds and then test the mouse and keyboard again.
  7. Reset the keyboard and mouse connections :
Note: The following connection sequence must be completed within 60 seconds.
With the receiver plugged in, press and hold the Connect button on the receiver until the activity LED flashes.
Note: Some HP computers have receivers built into the front of the computer; such as TouchSmart 700 Series PCs and Digital Entertainment Centers. Look for a small Connect button built into the case. If you have a TouchSmart 500 or 800 Series PC, the receiver plugs into a USB port on the underside of the case and does not have a Connect button - skip this step.

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.
