Re: Keyboard and Mouse
Try pricewatch.com.....if it exists you can probably find it there. But..is it essential you have a square one? The only determining factor for a keyboard or mouse is the connection....that ranges from wireless (in which case you must also have a receiver), to usb to serial. Look at the end of your keyboard and mouse and match it..they have pictures. By the way I recently bought several mice and keyboards on sale at Gearxs.com.....paid $2.44 and $3.68. They were new and logitech and worked. Tango.

This "can" be malware, but is most likely your pointer device going wonky. First unplug the mouse, trackball, or whatever it is you are using for a mouse. If you are still using an old PS2 connection (round plug), consider getting a USB mouse to replace it.
Plug your mouse back in and see if it solves the problem.
Try a new mouse.
If it's not the mouse (you just said the cursor is moving) it could be that the left arrow on your keyboard is stuck. In that case, rake your keyboard, tap ******* the arrow keys, turn over the keyboard and shake out any large Cheeto crumbs, use compressed air (if possible) to blow the dust out.
Unplug your keyboard from the computer and plug it back in. If you are still using the old PS2 keyboard (round plug), consider getting a USB keyboard to replace it. *** warning
*** warning, do NOT throw out the old PS2 plug keyboard if you replace it. You may need it to get into the BIOS some time in the future if the electronics don't recognize a USB keyboard on boot.
check in device manager its driver is there also check the fn key for the mouse is switched on on key board there is fn number cannot remember of had looks like a square with round edges press fn on keyboard and then while its pressed press the F key with the symbol on it, then check touch mouse. if the driver is there click on it and go to update driver.
If your mouse and keyboard work properly with another computer or laptop the problem could be :
A) if devices are USB :
- defective USB port : chose another USB port;
- USB port inactivated in BIOS : check and activate;
- motherboard defective : replace motherboard.
B) if devices are PS/2 :
- damaged PS/2 ports : buy a PS/2 to USB adapter for your mouse/keyboard or buy USB mouse and keyboard;
- motherboard defective : replace it.
sounds like a ps/2 connection. it should have 5-6 pins and possibly a plastic tab. Most computers have a connection for this on the back of the tower. IF your computer is too new, I would take it back and get a regular USB style mouse. Otherwise, you can always get a PS/2 to USB adapter for a few dollars.
look at the side on the right of the keyboard just beneath the grey area. Its a round grey button with no labelling. Press the connect button on the IR module or the itouch icon on your system tray then press this button.
First, put charged batteries into your keyboard and/or mouse. Then, plug the adapter into the USB port. Then, press the big, round button on top of the adapter and the CONNECT button on the bottom of the mouse (not simultaneously). Then, press the big, round button on the adapter, and the connect button on the bottom of the keyboard (not simultaneously). Once the computer is on, click the mouse once, and everything should be working fine. If the mouse and/or keyboard do stop working, then either click the mouse once, try the connection process above again, or change your batteries.
P.S. The connection process is only meant for whichever part is not working (i.e. If the keyboard works, but the mouse doesn't, then only do it for the mouse.)
Check your Keyboard-Video-Mouse (KVM) switch. If the system is connected to a monitor, mouse, and keyboard through a Keyboard-Video-Mouse (KVM) switch, or console selector switch, then disconnect the switch and connect monitor, mouse, and keyboard directly to the system. If this solves the issue, please contact your switch manufacturer for support and compatibility on the switch. Some switches can have a firmware update applied to resolve common problems.
Note: BladeCenter Telco chassis - The KVM module contains keyboard port, mouse port, Power LED, Location LED, Critical Telco Alarm LED, Major Telco Alarm LED, Minor Telco Alarm LED and a video port. The PS2 keyboard and mouse connectors are standard 6-pin Mini Din. The Telco alarms mirror the Telco alarms located on the front panel of the media tray because they use the same signal lines. The KVM module allows the connection of a VGA monitor for system maintenance and control. The video connector is a standard 15-pin VGA. The KVM module is hot-swappable. It is docked into an edge card connector located on the backplane:
If you have your system daisy chained for KVM capabilities using the C2T port (e.g. xSeries 330), then you must flash the C2T firmware after flashing the system BIOS, in order for the mouse and keyboard to work. Otherwise, after a BIOS flash, you will lose keyboard/mouse capabilities unless you walk up to each machine and push the select button.
If you are using NetBAY Advanced Connectivity Technology (ACT) CAT5 cabling in your rack server, instead of KVM cabling, click here for ACT information.
Check for POST/startup errors. If you are getting a POST/startup error on the keyboard and/or mouse:
Verify that all items are firmly connected to the correct ports, and that the cables are undamaged with no bent pins. The PS/2 style mouse and keyboard ports look identical, but are not interchangeable. The mouse and keyboard must be attached to the correct ports in order to be recognized by the system and to function correctly.
Swap each item for known good units. If a new item works where the original did not, then the original component must be faulty.
If the keyboard works during the POST/BIOS screens, but not in the operating system, check software logs for device driver errors. Contact your software vendor for more support in configuring the I/O devices.
Check the F1 Setup error logs for system component failures or errors. These are found under Event/Error Logs. Troubleshoot suspect components further to determine if the hardware is faulty. If an IBM component is determined to be faulty, please contact your local IBM Support Center for warranty replacement of the part(s). Please have the Field Replacement Unit (FRU) / Customer Replacement Unit (CRU) part number and Machine Type, model and serial number ready.
Run hardware diagnostics. Replace any parts found defective.
If you have the PS2 mouse and keyboard (round plug-in) instead of USB this is an easy install. however if you have USB you will need adapters to make this work, but I do not recommend it since more problems could occur. If you have the PS2 ends first shutdown both computers. remove your monitor, mouse, and keyboard from your computer and attach them to the single end of the switch. Mouse goes to Green, Keyboard to Purple. Take the other ends and connect the first group to your first computer mouse, keyboard, and monitor (same colors as above) and repeat for 2nd group of wires on 2nd computer. turn the computers on. you should get display, keyboard, and mouse for 1st computer. after both boot hit scroll lock 2 times within 2 seconds and then arrow up or down key to change between computers.
Did you use the CD software program that came with the Keyboard and mouse to install the Keyboard? Also try connecting the Receiver to another USB port to ensure that you don't have a bad USB port. Hope this helps. Bud
