Re: Mouse and Keyboard wont work after booting system?
First thing I would try is System Restore.
Start Programs Accessories System Tools System Restore
And go back to a date before this morning. This should take care of your problem most of the time.
Now when you say the monitor was black... do you mean because of the screen saver/power settings turned it black? Or did it go out on its own? If on its own, sounds like it might be overheating. See if it works once cold.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Which mouse are you using? Is it the integrated mouse or the USB mouse?
If you are using the USB mouse, then try checking if it's plugged in correctly.
If it's your integrated mouse, then restart the computer and when it's up. Try moving your mouse. Restarting it usually does the trick.
If restarting it won't fix the problem, then restart and boot to safe mode. While restarting, tap F8 until you see the options to boot to safe mode. Highlight safe mode by using the arrow keys and hit enter. When you are in safe mode, try moving your mouse. Works or not - update the mouse driver. You can use RadarSync. If no go, then you might need to do a system restore. If worse comes worst, do a complete operating system reinstallation.
No signal at the monitor indicates (if you know the monitor is working ok) a failure of the graphics chip or graphics card, The lack of indicator light on the num lock LED and the lack of power to the mouse would indicate that there is a major issue with the motherboard. you can try using another monitor to confirm the problem lies with the graphics, and in the case of the keyboard and mouse, swap them for a usb version, if they work, the Ps2 ports are probably damaged. I'd be thinking of replacing the motherboard
Try the ALT + Tab or Windows key + D button a few times, then it should start / be able to click icons... Alternately : you can restart your system in safemode by repeatedly pressing the F8 button on the kbd while the system is starting (boot up screen), you should be at an advanced boot menu that should take you to safe mode - once you are in safemode the mouse should work well.

First try changing the batteries, reconnect the dongle or the connection device of your wireless keyboard and mouse, then restart your computer. If the step wont work reinstall the Bluetooth/Infrared software driver the wireless keyboard and mouse then restart the computer. If this fails still look under Ad/Remove programs if you have a Setpoint installed then remove it and restart computer, both or at least one of the devices should work. If one or both wont work then you need to contact the manufacturer and have the defective device/s be replaced. Just a heads up, they may ask you to reinstall your operating system / do a reformat of your computer so you need to back up your data ahead of time using a wired keyboard and mouse. Have a nice day ahead!
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.
Check your keyboard is working or not by accessing your BIOS by pressing del or Esc or F12 (usually) or whatever your boot up screen says. If your keyboard works there then the problem lies in the operating system.If still your keyboard doesn't respond then replace the keyboard.
only if keyboard work, you can fix mouse opearting system problems.
For windows Vista & 7, expand "Mice & other point devices".right click on Microsoft Ps/2 mouse" select uninstall and restart the system.If your mouse is still working the system will automatically installed the mouse driver.And your mouse will work again.
Otherwise get a new mouse.
Note: Check you have wrongly insert the mouse 7 keyboard port at the back too.
Remember : Green for Mouse Purple blue for keyboard
Good morning! please check/review the cable connector connections of you're mouse & keyboard, it might be interchanged to its proper port terminal. If still not working, try to use another mouse & keyboard. best regards
make sure the mouse and keyboard are in right connections...if you look closely youll see icons next to ports.
try without mouse at first start up ,load windows and use key with windows logo on it to access start and scroll to shutdown tab and restart...plug in the mouse before restart.
if logo tab isnt assigned press ctrl + esc to access start menu.
Solution for the mouse. I have 8 KVM's. Most of my computers work with the KVMs. On 1 inland KVM the logitect and Microsoft optical mice do not work on one computer (but work with the other computers). They both are USB. I hook them up with a USB to PS2 adapter. If I use a ps2 ball mouse connected to the KVM the mouse works. All the Mice work if I directly connect them. Since I do not want a ball mouse I got a Frisby optical PS2 mouse. It works with all the computers on the KVM's.
I do not have a solution for the Keyboard yet. 1 computer (ASUS MB) on my trendnet or belkin 4 postion KVM does not recognize the keyboard.
