After I shut my pc down the laser for the mouse is still on as is the numlock on the keyboard. Then only time they shut off is when I flip the main power switch on the back of the tower. Is there a away to keep these 2 items from remaining on when the pc is off? BOth are plugged into the PS/2 slots.

Re: power to mouse/keyboard when off
You will have jumpers near the PS2 and USB ports on the motherboard. They control if there is +5v standby running to the keyboard, mouse and USB ports to use as an alternate wake up for the system. The USB can also be used to charge things while the computer is technically off..so it's a handy feature when needed.

One or more of your USB devices connected to your PC are malfunctioned, remove any usb connection exept keyboard and mouse. Boot the PC , if the error still exists then reboot after removing your Mouse first and keyboard at second. Tell me what happens after these.
Please check with external usb keyboard and mouse.
If external is working fine.. then there is probelm
with mouse clicking multiple times when you click one time.
For keyborad, you are not given any more information regarding what is the character displaying when which key is pressed. Try to check with numlock, and other functional keys.
if external also not working, check with local laptop repair center.
Try connecting one at a time, if you connect the mouse don't connect the keyboard, and if you connect the keyboard, don't connect the mouse, reboot each time and check which one is the culprit. One of the port or device must be creating the problem. Good luck.
Is the laser mouse USB? If so there is a grouping of settings in your BIOS that has to do with USB storage devices, mice, and keyboards. It would appear that your USB keyboard controller is already enabled but the mouse and USB storage devices are both disabled. If you need help navigating through the bios let me know or look it up on google.
Unplug the the dsl & any other device except the keyboard & mouse. Double check the video cable at both ends monitor & PC. Boot up system. If the system starts shut down & connect 1 device. Boot the system. OK? continue to do this. On the dsl there is a reset button. With it unpluged from power use a pen & hold in the reset for about ten seconds. Reconnect the power & reconnect the Rj45 to the PC. Boot system.
Do you have a modem plugged into phone line - is a signal on phone line causing it (unplug phone line cable to try that). Could be faulty power switch on front of computer where the contacts are only a hairs breadth apart and the slightest movement/vibration causes it to contact (try this by disconnecting those two wires from the motherboard
I'd try disconnectng any communication cables from the computer first. That would be LAN and Modem cables. If it still restarts, disconnect the keyboard and power down the PC. If it still restarts, then power down again before it is fully off, remove the mouse. If it still does it get a priest to do an exorcism
