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

Visit Microsoft website. You can get direction there to make it a legal copy. But, you might have to pay. To say more, there is no online updates for WinXP now. Microsoft have stopped it by April this year. In my opinion, it will he best to work with Win-7 or higher. Contact any vendor to install a legal copy to your system. Electro help

My mouse and keyboard are not working so there is no curser. do i need software installed for it to work?

No, you don't. The software to drive a keyboard and mouse are included in Windows.
You didn't say if your have a wireless mouse & keyboard. If so, change the batteries, push the "connect" button on each device and also on the antenna if it has a connect button.

Netware Authentication Failure

There is a Windows XP service that often causes this problem, called "Routing and Remote Access". (C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs )

Try to disable this service and see if your problem disappears.

  1. Right-click "My computer"
  2. choose "Manage"
  3. look for "Services" (you might have to expand "Services and Applications")
  4. scroll down to "Routing and Remote Access"
  5. left-click "Routing and Remote Access"
  6. click "Properties"
  7. click (in the General tab) "Startup type" and select "Disabled".
  8. If the service is running, select "Stop".
  9. Try to log in again or (better) restart the machine and you should be good to go.

If you have any more questions or this did not solve your problem, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
