PC stops responding to mouse or keyboard inputs

PC computer, microsoft XP, boots up easily and no problems unless I stop working (mouse or keyboard inputs) FOR 10-15 minutes. Then no response to mouse or keyboard inputs. I can only turn off by interupting power input. When I restart everything is OK again. This aplies to Google functions and microsoft word functions.

    Google is open using 3% of storage and microsoft word is open with 90% open memory capacity. This situation occurs even when google is not open (not connected to the net) and only word is operating. As long as I keep working it is ok. If I quit using the keyboard and mouse for about 10-15 minutes then the computer will not accept inputs and the screen strays as it was.

    When this situation occurs the computer does not respond to ctl+alt+del direction to go to task manager

My e-machines laptop (XP) will not boot-up, black screen. I have tried starting in safe mode without success and via BIOS without success. As last resort I have tried using the restore cd and get as far...

You didn't say what happens when you try to start in safe mode or enter the BIOS. Because you say that you can't make a selection when you insert the restore disk, I suspect that either your mouse or keyboard have stopped working. Try a different mouse or keyboard. If that doesn't work, then suspect a bad motherboard.

All in one computer and mouse and keyboard are not responding.

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

Could be a problem with your system BIOS, enter the setup while your computer is booting (before it gets to windows) by hitting the F12 key probably. Make sure that the boot order is HDD first, not something else.

Foxconn MoBo 947p7aa & keyboard lockup

Check if the processor temperature. ... sounds like that could be the problem. It would cause the computer to FREEZE the moment you start "working" on it because then the processor must do it's thing but it instantly overheats because either the processor cooler fan is'nt functioning correctly or the thermal paste has hardened and no longer offers a "connection" between the processor and the fan

No audio sound after installing the keyboard software

when you loaded the software for the keyboard, the buttons on the keyboard for functions will be active, have you made sure that the mute key on the keyboard is not pressed 'on' to mute the sound?
