Computer freezes, No Keyboard No mouse, but machine keeps on running
1 - 2 minutes after I turn on the Computer everything freezes, Mouse & Keyboard quit responding, However the machine keeps running most of the time. Sometimes It will shut Itself down. The only way I can shut It down Is by Unplugging machine. Sometimes It will automatically restart Itself when plugged back In. I've updated the BIOS (P4mpm613.bfb). I have an Intel Celeron D 360 Processor 3.46GHz, 512KB Cache, 533MHz FSB, Cedar Mill-512, OEM, Socket 775. I am currently using a 300W Power Source, I have also tried a 450W Power Source.

1) try to RESTORE to some point where the computer was working. 2) Update the BIOS +CHIPSET and RUN it. 2a) see if working. If NOT working go the step #3 3) update the USB driver from the supplier company. 4) updae the driver for keyboard +mouse , uninstall and reinstall. God bless you
Connect an additional wired keyboard to your pc. And when the freeze happens check if the pc responds at all, using the wired keyboard. If its not responding , its an indication of a faulty PSU or motherboard.
Hello sir, I have samsung 22in lcd monitor and nvidea fx5500 card. since last more than 6 months, my monitor goes blank If system remains idle (means I don't move mouse and don't touch keyboard) for 1 minute. After monitor goes blank I have to move mouse to brink it back to on. The power led keep on during this problem. I tried everything including power options in windows but could not fix it. Is it bios setting to be checked or could it be windows bug? Please help
Your problem has nothing to do with the Operating System (Vista), it has something to do with the brand of your computer. I have similar problem before, I have Vista (Dell), but the time I connected another Vista (Sony Vaio), everything worked correctly.
This is what you need to do:
1. You have to make sure that you are using a standard USB keyboard and mouse.
2. Connect first the keyboard and mouse directly to the Vista computer to see if the USB ports of your computer are working properly.
3. You may power cycle the KVM switch by disconnecting it from the computers (including the keyboard and mouse) and leave it disconnected for 2 minutes.
4. Reconnect everything after two minutes and then reboot the computers.
5. Try using different USB keyboard if problem exist after power cycling the KVM switch.
Solution for the mouse. I have 8 KVM's. Most of my computers work with the KVMs. On 1 inland KVM the logitect and Microsoft optical mice do not work on one computer (but work with the other computers). They both are USB. I hook them up with a USB to PS2 adapter. If I use a ps2 ball mouse connected to the KVM the mouse works. All the Mice work if I directly connect them. Since I do not want a ball mouse I got a Frisby optical PS2 mouse. It works with all the computers on the KVM's.
I do not have a solution for the Keyboard yet. 1 computer (ASUS MB) on my trendnet or belkin 4 postion KVM does not recognize the keyboard.
Does not sound like a memory problem. Usually the machine just crashes. You can run memtest86 to really exercise the memory on your machine. Download (for free) from http://www.memtest.org/#downiso. You have to burn the image to a CD-ROM then boot from the CD. Let it run for a couple of hours and you'll know if you have a memory problem.
When you start up, have to mouse on the one that freezes and then switch off that one. (turn on the one that freezes first and have the mouse set it. then once it is on boot the other one and then switch mouse.
Try re installing both, while in safe mode go to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and go down the list to keyboard,click '+' and right click on keyboard and select uninstall.
Re start laptop and see if it works ok.
Do the same for the mouse, but look for the line mouse and other pointing devices and uninstal and restart.
try also updating the drivers.
