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.

Keyboard and mouse not working


is your mouse and keyboard wireless?

If so your connection may not be set up right.

If your keyboard and mouse are wired with USB port plugs then you could have either a faulty cord or USB ports in your system. Try using the keyboards on another PC and see what happens. Also you cannot connect a keyboard and mouse after the system has booted into windows and expect it to work. Either way your system will think nothing is attached until you reboot. Try this out and see what happens.

Hi Tony,
It appears that you have an IBM desktop whose BIOS isn't capable of booting off of a USB keyboard and mouse device. Older computers used to require that a PS2 mouse and keyboard be attached before booting, to prevent you from booting a machine without any way of controlling it. You have 3 options:

1. leave the corded mouse and keyboard attached and never use them
2. update the BIOS for your desktop to the newest one in hopes that the updated BIOS will allow for USB mouse and keyboard operation
3. go to a computer store and get a PS2 to USB converter/adapter. They're small and relatively inexpensive. It plugs into the PS2 port, and makes your computer think that there's a PS2 device connected, when it's actually a USB device.

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.
