Keyboard and mouse won't work

I booted up my computer this morning (basic E-Machine) and it was fine until I touched the mouse and got static electric shock. It didn't seem to affect the hard drive (?) because it had already automatically established an online connection and that was fine. But the mouse and the keyboard would not respond. I tried rebooting a few times but to no avail.

Is this fixable? Did the electrical charge do something awful to the computer itself?

Your help is much appreciated!

My Lenovo mouse won't work. It connects and registers but won't move? Is there any help?


Hello,

Try booting to safe mode and check if your mouse works inside safe mode.

Restart the computer and tap F8 until you see the options to boot to safe mode. Use the arrow keys to highlight either safe mode or safe mode with networking. Hit enter.

Once you are inside safe mode, check if your mouse works. If it works, then you just need to update the mouse driver. You can use RadarSync to search and install the update into your computer. You better use Safe Mode with Networking because RadarSync needs the internet or even the manual updating process needs an internet connection.

I hope this helps!

You need to go to the manufacturer of both the keyboard and the mouse web sites and download the windows 98 drivers for both of them and install them.

Keyboard not recognized


I'm assuming it's a wireless keyboard?

Have you tried "ReSyncing" the keyboard?

1) On the base unit for the keyboard/mouse plugged into the computer press the button on it.
2) Press the button on the bottom of your keyboard.
3) Try to use the keyboard.

You might have to try it a couple of times. That'll fix the problem 99% of the time. The other 1% means your keyboard is dead.

Problem with KVM switch and Vista


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.

Make sure your BIOS can handle an upgraded CPU. I would go into bios, check the "default" or "fail safe" boot option and then power down. Lift keyboard or access your CPU and change out. Remember to touch something metallic before you operate so you discharge any static electricity (killed a CPU and a video card by not doing this ONCE) Boot up and notice any BIOS messages, may want to start in safe mode just to get a basic working config going, then power down, access BIOS and start getting it back to your best config, maybe stepping one item at a time, rebooting and continuing until you get a stable platform.
