MOUSE AND KEYBOARD FROZE UP


I'm assuming that your keyboard and mouse are wireless versions. You should therefore have a wireless controller plugged into one of the USB ports, probably at the back of the PC. Try removing the wireless controller and install it in a different USB port. The Windows operating system should detect it as a new device and attempt to install the drivers automatically.

When switch on desk top computor it bleeps saying unable to detect mouse/keyboard but mouse lights up


This can be caused by loose connections or a failure on the main computer motherboard. With the computer off pull the keyboard and mouse connections off and then reinsert them. Boot the computer and see if it finds them. Also try a differant keyboard and mouse.That will tell you if it is one or the other that has the problem. If you still cant use the keyboard or mouse then you have a more serious problem and are most likely looking at replacing the motherboard. Check to see if you have any warrenty either from IBM or the store you bought from.

Hi sdd555,

Restart the computer after plugging the USB keyboard into a different USB port, or remove the keyboard in Device Manager and then refresh the system to work around the issue. This will cause the device to be re-enumerated and the driver will be reloaded.

Good Luck,

.the mouse moves randomly across


Hi,
If mouse is moving randomly across the screen then you may have to change the mouse or the mouse pad. If system freezes automatically that is your software problem. Please install a fresh copy of windows xp or vista whatever. Hopefully it should work . thank you.......
