Re: mouse not weracking

Could this be a problem with the USB on the PC? Check that USB is enabled in BIOS. Give some more info, there may be more things to try.

Mouse freezes

This sounds most like a driver problem.
Make sure you have the correct driver for your particular mouse.
Do a web search for you model (on bottom of mouse usually), uninstall the current driver, install the new one, and then manually run Windows Update to make sure you have the latest (mouse drivers would be listed as Optional updates if available).

Laptop keyboard mouse not working

Toshiba has released a few different advisories related to its Satellite line of laptop computers having keyboard problems. Remember that damage caused by liquid or physical damage is not usually covered by warranty.

Bios Fixes
On Satellite models 1955-S801, 1955-S802, 1955-S803 and 1955-S804, the BIOS (system utility setup program) had trouble reading the firmware for the wireless keyboard. BIOS version 1.40 repaired this problem. The BIOS flash program can be downloaded from the Toshiba website. b> Satellite 1955 Text Anomaly b> Toshiba reported a strange, software-specific problem between the Satellite 1955-S801 and S803 computers and Microsoft Word and Excel. Users who held down the shift key for more than five seconds while using the arrow keys would see their highlighted text disappear. The only provided solution was to use an external keyboard attached with a PS/2 connection or to release the shift key if pausing while highlighting in those programs. General Troubleshooting for Satellite Keyboards b> For general concerns about the keyboard -- if it doesn't appear to be working -- try these few steps. Use the keyboard before Windows loads: hit F1 on the first screen that appears after turning the system on. If they keyboard works here, it's probably a Windows problem. Try attaching an external keyboard; if it works, the internal keyboard is likely broken.
Toshiba Laptop Mouse Problems
Some symptoms that occur with Toshiba laptop mice include jumping and vanishing pointers. These situations have occurred after software upgrades have been made. The problems can often be solved by following basic mouse troubleshooting methods. Overall, Toshiba laptop mice contain the basic functions characteristic of the USB variety.

Function b> The mouse device is used to move, open, delete and otherwise connect with items available on and through the computer monitor. In Toshiba laptops and many others, the mouse pad replaces the point and click USB mouse device. This enables the mobile computer laptop to be more compact, portable and ready to use. b> Features b> The mouse pad on a Toshiba laptop is located in the middle, directly below the keyboard. The control buttons, both primary and secondary are situated below it. The primary key, on the left, represents the left-click button on an USB mouse device. The secondary key on the right represents the right-click button on an USB mouse. This button is used to pull up the short menu of an item after selecting it. Update Keyboard Driver b> Many Toshiba mouse issues can be solved by updating the driver. The driver enables the mouse to function properly. Update the keyboard driver first to increase mouse and keyboard device compatibility. To complete this task, click "Administrative Tools," accessible from the Start menu. Next, click "Computer Management," and then select "Device Manager." Click the "Keyboards" expansion node to bring up the list of installed hardware, and then right-click on the keyboard that is in use. If the "Update Driver" option is available, click on it. Otherwise, select "Properties," go the "Driver" tab and press "Update Driver." Device Manager is a useful tool to update, rollback or uninstall incompatible drivers. b> Update the Mouse Driver b> Update the mouse driver by following most of the instructions in the above section, "Update Keyboard Driver." However, after selecting "Device Manager," click the expansion node next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Select the current mouse device in use and right-click on it. If the "Update Driver" option is available, click on it. Otherwise, select "Properties" and go to the Driver tab and press "Update Driver." b> Check BIOS Fixes b> Some older Toshiba laptop models require BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) fixes. Most of the downloads are available from their website. Since, the BIOS chip is the liaison between the hardware and software, any issues should be addressed promptly. Symptoms, such as erratic mouse behavior or the pointer disappearing, are signs of a need for a BIOS fix or driver update. b> Compatibility b> Toshiba and most Microsoft Windows products are compatible. This is vital when it comes to updating necessary drivers needed for continual operating system function. The service packs they approve of are listed on their website. Hope this helps.

PS/2 Mouse and keyboard do not work at login screen.

If would be a driver issue if it was USB. Clean the connectors in the PC. It may be an issue with internal drives. But I m pretty sure an update caused the trouble if you did so. If you find the update you can use MS website to find a solution. Or you can remove the update. It happens often. Other reasons. It may be caused by a virus as well (or bad ram). It happens rarely though. If you have connection sharing setup (a network) you can check the the other HDD for viruses (or plugging in as a slave to the other PC, but do not open the drive). Check your RAM using Computer B.
Have you tried to plug in ComputerB's Key board and Mouse? Do they work? If they do do the following after login in. Get RUN box in the Start menu. Type Eventvwr.msc and hit enter. Go to System and check for errors. If there are please list here. (Check for Application errors also.) Thanks for contacting Fixya

My hp-compaq-510 mouse driver is not working.whenever i connect mouse it will not detected as a hard drive.only procees can done by touchpad.

You might try going to the manafacturers web site to see if there is an updated driver available for it.
From HP's website,( ),
it does not show that a external mouse was available. Is this a mouse that was purchased seperately?? If so you will need to go to the manafacturer of the mouse itself.

What are the basic drivers i need to install to my computer?

Video, audio, system board (esp. if not in WinXP's release set), about 300 patches from Microsoft Update on those even after the SP3 update, plus anything special you want to use like a particular mouse driver (Logitech, say) or webcam. You'll want some optical drive utilities too, so just install a Nero suite.

WinXP is deprecated by M'soft, so if you're talking about installing an OS you might want to pick Ubuntu or something.
