Hi,

are you using a usb keyboard? A lot of systems require a ps/2 (purple round connector) keyboard to access the bios settings and anything on the startup screen unless you have set usb on boot in the bios settings. I would try connecting a ps/2 keyboard and see if it helps.

Mouse & keyboard not working


You're "stuck" -- if the circuitry for the PS/2 keyboard and mouse is not working, and if it does not recognize a USB keyboard, the motherboard must be replaced (by an identical moetherboard, if you can find one, or a "newer/better" motherboard that takes the same CPU and RAM as your current motherboard).

My computer won't start up and my mouse and keyboard are not working. Do I need to replace my CMOS Battery?


Yes turn off your computer and replace the Cmos battery. It seems that your keyboard and mouse is connected into the usb port of your computer, the usb function in the Cmos setup is disabled that's why your keyboard and mouse is not working. Upon checking the Cmos setup enabled the usb function and save the changes and restart the computer to take effect.

When I start my pc it gose as far sa the page with icons and then stops cant load anything keyboard and mouse dont work


Unplug both the KB and the Mouse. Look at the pins inside at the end of the cord to make sure they are not bent. If they are, straighten them and try again. If NOT, try using a USB keyboard and Mouse. If that works, the PS2 connections on the MoBo are bad.

My Acer Aspire T310 won't go past the Acer screen and the Keyboard and Mouse don't work


Yours may be a little old computer and the cmos battery (on the mother board)is drained out. Replace this battery. You need a working keyboard.

Gateway 610 k/b & mouse unrecognized..CMOS problem??


It's not the K/M, there probably was a surge that went through, and effected the motherboard in the computer. so you can take it to your local computer shop. But, before you bring it there, back up your important files because they might have to format your HD.

Gateway Flexatxstc BRO Essential 700c

The picture shows PS/2 ports the one closest to the edge is the keyboard port the one next to it is for mice. Your best bet for an operating system is to purchase XP Home, you may need to upgrade your memory to keep up with XP. But price it out first it might not be cost effective.
