Keyboard Unresponsive at Boot, Keyboard/Mouse Randomly Fail

My keyboard started being unresponsive at boot-up after I had to repair it using a passkey supplied by the computer after the batteries died.

Before this instance, I have been dealing with both the keyboard and mouse intermittemntly becoming unresponsive for minutes at a time before working again for a year now. It acts like a background task is pre-empting console input.

Dell suggested I update to the latest drivers for my mouse/keyboard and latest BIOS for my XPS 420... No joy.

SOURCE: Inspiron 1525 Touchpad has a mind of its own

I have had the same problem.  This may sound strange, but try the following:
Switch off the notebook.  
Remove the battery and keep the on off switch pressed for >5 seconds.  
Replace the battery and start the computer again.  

The problem should then be resolved.

SOURCE: kennsington 72214 mouse is unresponsive in XP Pro

Hello friend,
You must either reconnect your mouse or just install the hardware again all together because some how either your signals are being crossed or blocked.

SOURCE: Have a Dell Dimension. rebooted

First, I would try booting to Safe Mode and see if that gets you to Windows. If it does, then it's a driver issue that can be relatively easily fixed by "Uninstalling" the keyboard in the Control Panel/Device Manager, then rebooting and letting the system reinstall the driver.

If that doesn't do it, then it sounds like the (assuming you're using a PS2 keyboard) PS2 keyboard plug port may be compromised (ie., damaged). Try using a USB keyboard instead and see if that solves your issue (as trying to repair a PS2 keyboard port is not practical).

Hope that's helpful.

Floppy disk fail (40) CMOS Checksum Error Defaults Loaded & Keyboard Unresponsive


Unplug the floppy drive cable from the motherboard and test.
Problem still there??
Check the leads of the 3 integrated circuits starting with the one directly to the right of the LAN connectors, and working down and to the left to the other integrated circuits.
The problem you are looking for is two leads shorted together or a lead broken by somebody who was careless with a card, and hit the IC during assembly.
There can also be a short caused by trash or loose components, but that is not as common.

Keyboard unresponsive only 5's on screen


Sounds like your keyboard has been hijacked by a virus. Try booting into safe mode and see if the keyboard acts the same way. Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal. If it is ok in safe mode then run your virus scan.

Unresponsive keyboard + mouse pad


I guess you have a mechanical problem, sounds like the mother board have some issues on starting all devices.

If you could use keyboard to go in the bios, and see the screen, if would be the OS that need to be repaired.

I have an Hp Pavillion a1547c and when I boot up the keyboard is unresponsive. I can use esc to get into the boot menu and f1 to enter setup but once those screens load the keyboard is no longer...


Hi,
Go into the Bios utility and enable all the USB controllers, then save the changes, exit the bios. The computer will restart, plug the keyboard into another USB port and let the computer boot up, wait about 5 minutes before trying to use the keyboard because the drivers maybe trying to install themselves.
If you get no luck you will need a standard PS/2 keyboard, connect that and boot your machine, log into your account and install the drivers for the USB keyboard.



Good luck.

Keyboard won't repond during the boot process


The motherboard is clearly perfectly fine, if it tries to start up windows, are you using a USB keyboard? if so try the old Style PS/2 oval or round shaped connector type keyboard and see if that works.
Let me know how that goes so can continue to diagnose the problem.
