You should install the mice driver or uninstall the current mice driver and reinstall it back after restarting. if this not help, something wrong with your mice and you'll need to replace it.

How can i unlock my keyboard

Recognize that you have a locked keyboard.

If your PC computer is not responding to keystrokes or is responding very slowly, you could have a locked keyboard.

Use your mouse to move the pointer over the "Start" button.

Use the left-click button to bring up the "Start" pop-up menu.

Position the pointer over "Settings" and use the left-click button to select. T

hen select "Control Panel." On some versions of PC operating systems, you can select "Control Panel" directly from the "Start" menu.

Select "Accessibility Options" to bring up another menu, then select "Keyboard."

You'll see three options that have check boxes.

Make sure each check box does not have a check mark in it.

The three options are "StickeyKeys," "FilterKeys" and "ToggleKeys."

Note that these options can become checked if the keyboard operator has repeatedly depressed the "Shift" key in rapid succession--or if the "Shift" key is held down for longer than eight seconds.

If the keyboard is still not responding, the problem could be that the computer has lost communication with the keyboard.

Turn off the computer.

Disconnect the power supply.

Remove and then reconnect the keyboard cable, then reconnect the power supply.

Turn the computer on.

This will reboot the computer, allowing it to recognize the keyboard.

hope this helps

Mouse cursor jumping problem, how to fix it?

A mouse is a vital component of your computer and allows you to control certain functions on the screen. When the mouse is not functioning correctly, it can be frustrating. There are a few different reasons why your mouse pointer may jump on the screen. You need to work through the possible causes and troubleshoot the problems to fix your mouse and get it working properly again.

Examine the batteries if you have a wireless mouse and the cursor begins to jump. A low battery may be the cause. Change the batteries and check the mouse again. If it is still experiencing the same problems, proceed to the next steps to resolve the issue.

Switch the wireless transmitter to a different USB port on another computer if possible. There could be problems with the port, causing the cursor to jump. This will resolve the problem if the issue is with the USB port. If the mouse is still jumping, move on to the next steps.

Click on the "Start" menu in the bottom left corner of the screen. Right-click on the "My Computer" menu and click on "Properties." Click on the "Hardware" menu and click on "Device Manager." Locate the mouse entry in the list. Right-click on it and select "Update Driver" from the menu. Allow a few moments for the operating system to locate and install an updated driver for your mouse.

4. Remove dust or debris from the mouse pad and mouse with a soft cloth. Dust or debris could prevent the mouse from operating smoothly and cause the cursor to jump. Add a small amount of isopropyl alcohol to the cloth before you begin. Wait for the alcohol to dry on the pad and mouse prior to using.
5. Go to the "Start" menu and click on "Control Panel." Double-click on the "Mouse" icon and click on "Mouse Pointer." Decrease the speed of the mouse pointer. This could be causing the cursor to jump.
I hope you find it very helpful.
Thank you.

You can remove the roller for cleaning by untwisting the locking cap on the bottom of the mouse. Usually you have to clean the shafts that are turned by the ball. There are two, one for left-right, one for up-down, and there is a spring loaded roller. There is a gummy buildup on these that prevents smooth operation. I use a sharp knife to gently scrape it off. If the shafts are still sticky you may have to dissassemble the entire mouse. Hardly worth the effort unless you have some kind of high powered mouse with special features. BUT, this is not a symptom of a new mouse.

If it is new and does not work, you should consider returning it.
Also, consider an optical mouse. They do not have this problem.
