Keyboard and mouse not working

I got my computer off a friend and once I set it up, it only goes as far as the Green Acer screen which on the right bottom corner says:
Del: Start Set up F12: Boot Manual
But my keyboard and mouse won't work so I can't any further. Their both USB and I've tried them in all ports but nothing. Thing in when I went to pick it up, it was already set up and the Mouse was working. Not sure about the keyboard...

Does anyone know who to help?? Its got Windows 2003 installed..

Hi,

Just passing by, and i saw your concern about your pc.

sounds like you might have a posible glitch on *********** board.
the message "start set up 12" means the mother board supporting soft ware may be encountering issue.

a simple reset on what we call BIOS might solve this.

Locate the mother board manual and look for the BIOS reset jumper, in some cases just carefully remove the battery then leave it for 2 or 5 min to tottaly reset the bios. its alittle risky cause you might break the battery holder, so go with the jumper setting. and dont forget to place it back to its original position.

Hope it helps!

Make sure the batteries are inserted correctly and have charge if applicable
usually located on the underside of the mouse there might be small plastic sticker with a phillips head screw under it rub your fingernail over the top to see if it has a screw or make sure the usb device is properly inserted for wireless the usb or Ps2 connection are secure with a dust free connection
or it might be the usb for wireless mouse or lead connecting to the usb port or even a faulty mouse if this does not fix the problem Restart you computer tap the f8 key repeatedly to enter safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you an attempt to repair your computer If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen. Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option: Safe Mode

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

Got a used Compaq Pressario SR1303wm and need to set up correctly


Monitor into Small Blue connector at back.
If Mouse and keyboard are Round and not Rectangular in shape then that's a PS/2 Mouse and keyboard. Purple goes into Keyboard slot at back. Green goes into Mouse at back. Watch for the design as the pins inside each one need to be inserted accordingly.
If they ARE rectangular then that is a USB connection. On the back connect the keyborad and mouse to the top two. Again, only going to insert one ways.

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.

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.

Acer Desktop doesn't boot


I have had the same problem than djlimit.
I have contacted ACER service on line (in France, were I live) . They propose a quotation for repair against 60 Euros.
I shipped the product through (prepaid) express parcel service. I got it back 10 days later. They simply exchanged the main PCB.

Monitor won't come on


When you say the pc is working fine, it's hard to tell if there is no visual from the monitor. Are you getting the 2 usual spaced beeps when your pc boots up, is your keyboard ps2(normal pin type plug or USB)check you have keyboard and mouse in their correct connectors (mouse-green plug, keyboard-purple plug) I'ts more than likely had a bit of banging about in storage and especially if it's been in a cool area, then placed in your house, there may well be condensation points inside which may take a few days to dry out. Try your monitor in a friends pc to eliminate that first.
