    1. Check your Keyboard-Video-Mouse (KVM) switch. If the system is connected to a monitor, mouse, and keyboard through a Keyboard-Video-Mouse (KVM) switch, or console selector switch, then disconnect the switch and connect monitor, mouse, and keyboard directly to the system. If this solves the issue, please contact your switch manufacturer for support and compatibility on the switch. Some switches can have a firmware update applied to resolve common problems.

      Note: BladeCenter Telco chassis - The KVM module contains keyboard port, mouse port, Power LED, Location LED, Critical Telco Alarm LED, Major Telco Alarm LED, Minor Telco Alarm LED and a video port. The PS2 keyboard and mouse connectors are standard 6-pin Mini Din. The Telco alarms mirror the Telco alarms located on the front panel of the media tray because they use the same signal lines. The KVM module allows the connection of a VGA monitor for system maintenance and control. The video connector is a standard 15-pin VGA. The KVM module is hot-swappable. It is docked into an edge card connector located on the backplane:

    2. If you have your system daisy chained for KVM capabilities using the C2T port (e.g. xSeries 330),
      then you must flash the C2T firmware after flashing the system BIOS, in order for the mouse and keyboard to work. Otherwise, after a BIOS flash, you will lose keyboard/mouse capabilities unless you walk up to each machine and push the select button.

    • If you are using NetBAY Advanced Connectivity Technology (ACT) CAT5 cabling in your rack server, instead of KVM cabling, click here for ACT information.

    1. Check for POST/startup errors. If you are getting a POST/startup error on the keyboard and/or mouse:

    2. Verify that all items are firmly connected to the correct ports, and that the cables are undamaged with no bent pins. The PS/2 style mouse and keyboard ports look identical, but are not interchangeable. The mouse and keyboard must be attached to the correct ports in order to be recognized by the system and to function correctly.
    3. Swap each item for known good units. If a new item works where the original did not, then the original component must be faulty.

    4. If the keyboard works during the POST/BIOS screens, but not in the operating system, check software logs for device driver errors. Contact your software vendor for more support in configuring the I/O devices.

    5. Check the F1 Setup error logs for system component failures or errors. These are found under Event/Error Logs. Troubleshoot suspect components further to determine if the hardware is faulty. If an IBM component is determined to be faulty, please contact your local IBM Support Center for warranty replacement of the part(s). Please have the Field Replacement Unit (FRU) / Customer Replacement Unit (CRU) part number and Machine Type, model and serial number ready.

    1. Run hardware diagnostics. Replace any parts found defective.

    Download the latest diagnostics for your system
    1. If you can down the system, check the keyboard cable connector on the system unit for proper voltage.

    2. Power off the system.
    3. Disconect the keyboard cable form the system unit.
    4. Power on the system and check the keyboard cable connector on the system unit for the voltages shown:

      PIN Voltage (Vdc) 1 +5.0 2 Not used 3 Ground 4 +5.0 5 +5.0 6 Not used
    5. If the voltages are not correct, replace the system board. Otherwise, replace the keyboard.

    6. If these steps have not solved your problem:

    Tip

    USB devices not recognised or not working properly?


    Try these steps to reinitialize your usb ports on your pc

    1. Unplug ALL USB devices connected to the computer. If you are using a USB mouse and keyboard, temporarily use the older type PS/2 devices if you have them, if you don't then just leave them connected.

    2. Hold down the windows key and press r

    3. Type devmgmt.msc into the run menu and press ok

    4. Click on the + sign next to the Universal Serial Bus Controllers

    5. You might need another mouse to do this if you have a usb mouse.. I recommend you get a ps2 connector mouse which goes into the green round connector in the back of your pc.
    0a245dd.jpg
    6. Right click and uninstall first the usb root hubs. all of them then uninstall the rest of the devices you see under Universal serial bus controllers

    7. Ones you have uninstalled everything you should see the Universal serial bus controllers there at all.

    8. Now go ahead and restart your pc.

    9. Ones you have restarted the pc your usb ports will reinstall in a moment stand by while it installs all of them. If you get warning messages click ok or continue installation.

    10. Now go ahead and plug the usb devices back in. Install software if required, all usb devices if not faulty or broken should work now. Also note the error code if you get one?

    This solution doesn't fix all usb problems so if you have a yellow ! mark there and device status reports a error code. Then it might not be a problem with your usb ports.

    Thank you for reading, do leave suggestions, comments, feedback below.

    Unable to start in Safe Mode with Command Prompt in XP Media Center 2005


    Hi there. My name is Alex and I am here to help solve this problem

    Depending if the BIOS has legacy USB support for keyboard and mouse enabled, you should be able to run safe mode by pressing F8 before the computer boots into windows. I would not recommend going into the BIOS if you do not have much knowledge to the computer as one wrong configuration could cause some behaviour problems or even damage to the pc's components

    I recommend connecting a keyboard and mouse that have cable and the PS/2 connectors (purple and green) which can be found at back of the computer at the top. Then restart your computer, hold down F8 and you will be able to run safe mode. The mouse and keyboard will then work

    Keep both the keyboard and mouse plugged in and boot windows. When you get into windows, plug in the USB keyboard and mouse into a USB slot and wait whilst it detects it. After a couple of minutes you should be able to use your USB mouse and keyboard and take out the PS/2 keyboard and mouse

    I hope this has helped. Please let me know if you have any questions or need further assistance.

    Motherboard is getting 12V, 5,2V from power supply. Probably 5,2V is dead. If you have a friend who will give you a power supply. Put in your computer and you will see that is the problem.

    USB mouse won't work under XP in a dual boot Ubuntu GRUB 1.5


    It has the latest mouse driver (logitech setpoint 4.0). Before installing Ubuntu the setup worked w/ SUSE/XP using GRUB dual boot. After installing Ubuntu XP does not see the usb mouse. Even Logitech setpoint does not have the mouse setup/configuration option. It appears that at boot it does not recognize the mouse or disables it. The BIOS has the usb keyboard and mouse enabled. Currently, I have two mices one for xp and either mouse will work under Ubuntu.

    Computer restart


    yes the problem as you discussed was the processor's overheating. first, you need to open up the side cover of your casing then switch on check vissually if the fan of the processor is spinning if not then you need to replace this. and if this is spinning upon power on, the power supply will be checked its voltage.
