Re: keyboard, mouse problem
Assuming that your keyboard stops working when its on (same for mouse) then it means your machine will be frozen
Try to give it time (around 3 mins) without doing anything letting it resolve the issue the keyboard should work on later. If this solve your problem then your computer is just slow bcoz of a virus, too many programs to load at start up, new software or hardware update.
Try using a different keyboard when yopu boot up preferably a PS/2 keyboard,if this one works well then its means you nmeed to load new drivers for your keyboard and mouse
Also try running chkdsk to clear your harddrive for errors.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

im not sure what volume sounds you are hearing every 20/30 sec if they are not beeps Restart your computer During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaultsor load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart or During the boot process tap thef8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer Hope this helps
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.
Do you get video at least?
Do you get keyboard during POST? (Try turning the system off, turn it on and keep hitting F8 until you get to a windows boot selection screen)
Does Windows boot all the way up but you just cannot interact with the laptop? Try plugging in an external mouse/keyboard/speakers, or remove it from the docking station if it is attached to one.
If you get keyboard/mouse before windows (able to move up and down the boot selection screen), then Windows may just need to be reinstalled for some strange reason.
If you still aren't getting anything, the motherboard may need to be replaced.
i would reset your keyboard and mouse settings to default then shut down pc.. unplug components and wait for 3o secs and then try again.. if the problem persists, you may just have some loose connections especially if your pc is older..make sure there is enough slack for your mouse and keyboard wire to move around.. i know sometimes we can ruin them if we have then stretched to far out.. hope this helps.. d
1- get yourself a PS2 keyboard 2- go to windows and install the S5100K-G keyboard driver 3- reboot the computer and go to the BIOS settings and make sure to enable the USB keyboard and mouse feature 4- shutdown the pc .. remove the PS2 keyboard and plug the S5100K-G keyboard then reboot
You need to synchronize the connection again. there should be a reconnect button on the bottom side of the mouse and keyboard. mostly green in color. press that and within 30 sec. press the reconnect button on the receiver. that should fix the problem.
