    My keyboard and mouse have stopped working.Both at the same time !

    I Booted from a recovery disc, then both worked ok.But couldn't actually achieve anything with the disc although it proves that there isn't anything wrong with the keyboard or mouse themselves.

Keyboard and mouse both? Are they USB? Have you tried restarting the computer? If you have restarted already, how long before your keyboard and mouse become unresponsive? Immediately? Note: NEVER unplug your mouse or keyboard (unless they are USB) if your computer is turned on. Doing so may damage your motherboard. Always make sure your computer is comletely shut down before unplugging them.

My keyboard in my revo rl100 doesn't work


Sounds like the battery in the keyboard is dead. Also make sure you have the wireless doggle that came with the keyboard and mouse plugged into the usb port. You might try plugging it into another port.

I'm thinking your keyboard is dead because of the battery or a virus has hijacked your keyboard.

Try booting up in Safe Mode to make sure it's not virus related. Turn the computer off, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different because the icons are bigger and the screen is darker, this is normal. If your keyboard works in safe mode then you might have a virus that can't function in safe mode.

Hi!

I want to help bu I need more details. Does your PC have PS/2 connectors for mouse and keyboard? If YES than connect one PS/2 keyboard and get into BIOS setting and check if USB keyboard and mouse are active. Please post again as a comment to your initial post and give more details.

I have a Dell PC and I unplugged the mouse and the keyboard temporarily to clean it. When I plugged them both back into the tower and turned on the computer, neither one worked. I tried to restart, shut...


To try to resolve the issue:
1.) Will a different keyboard and mouse work (PS2 is the name of these connections)
If they will, damage to the keyboard and mouse is likely)
2.) Will a usb mouse and keyboard work?
If they do, then the problem is with the controller on the mobo, unlikley but MAY have been casued by static.

If the USB keyboard and mouse do not work, you have some problems with the motherboard

Try switching off and unplugging the computer, remove the coin shaped BIOS battery and plug in the keyboard and mouse, wait 2 minutes or so and put the battery back, replug in and power on, see if the bios detects the keyboard and mouse (you will see the bios screen flash up a message). If the computer does nOT detect the keyboard and mouse it will (or should) flash a message on the screen saying "no PS2 keyboard or mouse detected".

If this fails to detect the mouse and keyboard and you get no message or beeps, then there may be damage to the connector ports.

If you can get a USB keyboard and mouse to work, use them, Effecting a repair to the motherboard will not be a viable option

All in one computer and mouse and keyboard are not responding.


Check your keyboard is working or not by accessing your BIOS by pressing del or Esc or F12 (usually) or whatever your boot up screen says. If your keyboard works there then the problem lies in the operating system.If still your keyboard doesn't respond then replace the keyboard.

only if keyboard work, you can fix mouse opearting system problems.

For windows Vista & 7, expand "Mice & other point devices".right click on Microsoft Ps/2 mouse" select uninstall and restart the system.If your mouse is still working the system will automatically installed the mouse driver.And your mouse will work again.

Otherwise get a new mouse.

Note: Check you have wrongly insert the mouse 7 keyboard port at the back too.

Remember : Green for Mouse
                   Purple blue for keyboard

Wireless mouse and keyboard issues


If you have both sets of keyboard and mouse plugged in, turn off the computer and remove the old mouse and plug in the new mouse. Reboot and if necessary use the keyboard to login. Once windows is loaded let it detect the new mouse and then shut down again. Take out the old keyboard and reboot. You should now be able to use both new pieces without problems.

Wireless mouse all of a suddon stoped working. everything is plugged in fully charged , have tried the connect button along with many others. 7 button centrios laser mouse.


Nice mouse.

I've had some problems with wireless mice in the past, so I will just list the causes and see if one fits the bill for you.

1. Did you move the USB transceiver (this is the device that communicates with the mouse) from one USB port to another? If so, uninstall the mouse and reinstall it using the CD that came with your mouse.

2. Do you have any other wireless devices in the vicinity of your mouse that use a radio frequency rather than infrared, such as a wireless keyboard? If so, you may have a conflict.

3. Were you provided instructions on resetting the RF channel and/or ID code of the mouse? There is a small chance that the channels/codes between the mouse and the transceiver were scrambled and you may need to sync them again.

Hope one of these helps!
