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!

try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making sure that there is no moisture in the air line dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems or control panel keyboard/mouse hardware troubleshoot

Hi Tony,
It appears that you have an IBM desktop whose BIOS isn't capable of booting off of a USB keyboard and mouse device. Older computers used to require that a PS2 mouse and keyboard be attached before booting, to prevent you from booting a machine without any way of controlling it. You have 3 options:

1. leave the corded mouse and keyboard attached and never use them
2. update the BIOS for your desktop to the newest one in hopes that the updated BIOS will allow for USB mouse and keyboard operation
3. go to a computer store and get a PS2 to USB converter/adapter. They're small and relatively inexpensive. It plugs into the PS2 port, and makes your computer think that there's a PS2 device connected, when it's actually a USB device.

Keyboard & mouse will not register while cpu is booting up but works fine once windows is started


This is likely due to your computer not loading the USB drivers until after windows starts.

You could do a BIOS browse at start up to see if there is a setting for this, but I doubt it.

I cannot use my keyboard and mouse. Something is wrong with my devices


Make sure the keyboard is working in bios. When you boot the computer hit f2 or Del. key to make sure the keyboard is working. Also make a note that the keyboards light blink while turning on the pc.

If you are able to go to BIOS that means the keyboard is working fine.

Boot your computer in safe mode by tapping F8 key while the computer is booting. Select safe mode and check if the keyboard and mouse is working in safe mode.

If it is working in safe mode. Do a system restore to a date where everthing was working fine.

Please revert with the result of above .

Hello There,
This problem is not common,
Try these:

1) Re-install the software - see what happens.

2) Un-install the software if 1) doesn't work and try using keyboard.

3) Read about common problems in the software and keyboard:


http://support.microsoft.com/kb/258826



4) If all these fail then call Microsoft about this problem and let them diagnose it. They are the makers so they should know what to do.

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.

Connection


There is usually a "Connect" button on the devices (Mouse & Keyboard) and on the receiver the unit connected to the computer. Hit the "Connect" button on the receiver then the ones on the Mouse and Keyboard.

Hopefully that works...

If not comment back.
