My computer here is not functioning as when I log in, the keyboard just turn off and could not function.It turns on when you switch on the CPU but then all of a sudden it turns off again. It seems funny as the mouse is functioning but not the keyboard.Both the mouse and keyboard are USB cables.I have tried the other keyboard but still no change.

Look on your keyboard. On most laptops there is a function key that will lock the keyboard. You would need to pres the [Fn] key and the appropriate [F#] key. In mine the combination would be [Fn+F1] keys. If she shuts down to re-activate the keyboard she looses whatever she is working on.
Or...do a hard reset: turn off computer, remove ac adapter and battery, hold down power button for 20 seconds, put battery and ac adapter back on, then turn on computer.
If the keyboard has a round purple connector, power down the computer then unplug and then plug in the keyboard. Power on the computer. If it works your done if it doesn't replace the keyboard. If this is a USB keyboard, with the computer on, unplug and plug in the keyboard if it works great, if it still isn't working replace the keyboard. NOTE if this is a multi functional keyboard (special keys at the top) make sure you install the driver and any software associated with the keyboard.
1 Follow the steps mentiond below:
•2 Leave your current wired keyboard plugged into the computer. Many computers will cease to function if their keyboard is removed.
•3 Make sure that the computer is on and is functioning properly.
•4 Plug the USB wireless adapter of the wireless keyboard into a USB port on your computer. If you don't have a USB port, then your computer is probably too old and likely won't support a wireless keyboard.
•5 Make sure that there are batteries in your wireless keyboard. Oftentimes, the consumer is responsible for putting the batteries in, and they don't come with the keyboard when it's purchased.
•6 Turn the power on for your wireless keyboard. The method of doing this varies depending on the model you've purchased, but the power switch/button is generally located on the bottom of the wireless keyboard.
•7 Wait for the keyboard to download it's driver software. If you don't have a connection to the Internet, use the software that was included with your wireless keyboard to install the driver manually.
•8 Use the wireless keyboard exactly as you would a wired keyboard.
You can activate the usb function from your computer bios. Turn on your computer and enter your bios by keep pressing the del key on your keyboard. The go to Advance setup and look for usb function settings and turn it on.
Cant remember the exact location for this, but you need to access the CMOS config when starting up. Dig around a little and you will find the settings that will allow you to start you system with a usb mouse and keyboard. Hope this helps. If you have any idea where I can get drivers for my motherboard (EPoX EP-4PDA5) that would be great. I already tried EPOX's website, and no joy.
Hi, Make sure that the keyboard wire is plugged in to the keyboard port and mouse wire is plugged in to the mouse port. Remember that you need to restart the system once after you plugged into the motherboard. if that doesn't work then replace the keyboard / mouse and check. if same thing is happening then there is a problem in your motherboard. Thank you.
