I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My computer has developed a lock-up problem (Keyboard and Mouse Freezes)
It can happen randomly but it will also happen when I go into the "selection" process in Photoshop and I have tried to download the SP2 windows update and it locks up every time.I have changed from windows XP home to Pro,
put in all new memory,purged and reinstalled all programs. For a while it seemed OK, but gradually it started to do it again and is becoming more frequent. What causes lock-ups and what is likely doing it to me.

PLEASE HELP ME!!!

My mouse and keyboard lock up like every 20 seconds. and sometimes they lock up completly and don't come back.
in between being locked up they run smoothly no jerky movment or anything. And when it locks up completly the stuff on the screen keeps going on as normal. eg. game keeps moving, movie keeps playing.

When they lock up temporarily everything I did with the mouse in the mean time happens right after I regain control.

The problem is not overheating.
I updated my mouse drivers so that is not problem.
I ran system monitor and the computer spiked to about 60% usage every time it happens.

I don't know is this is relivent but I tried to run scan disk and it restarted every time that happened.

I checked for viruses using McAfee and it found nothing

Believe it or not, video drivers can cause mouse issues. Do you have the latest drivers for your video. You can also test to see if it's a video issue lowering hardware acceleration on the video card
This may take a while. Right click on desktop>properties>settings>advanced>troubleshoot tab at top. Now lower the slider one notch and click ok until out of the windows. You may have to reboot. Test and see if it helps, if it does then it's probably a driver issue.

I've been running into problems as of late and i'm not quite sure what is wrong. I use a microsoft optical mouse and for some reason it stops working after a little bit of time. No power to the unit at all, red light doesnt come on. Less than a minute after it locks up on me my keyboard locks as well. When I reboot everything is fine for a bit then it happens again. I tried the mouse in the ps/2 port and usb port and same thing happens. I was thinking it might have been the psu that was replaced early last month but I have no clue heh. A normal ball mouse works fine in the system no lock ups as of yet.

Any help is appreciated.

About 1 month ago I did a clean install of Windows 10 for the first time.

All has been well, until recently when my PC went to sleep, and when I woke it, the screen wouldn't wake up, so I had to hard reset it. At this point Windows installed some updates and it seemed to be ok.

Today I cold booted and when I got to the Windows 10 lock screen, the keyboard and mouse do not work. I can confirm that they do work at POST and in Windows 7 on my other drive. When I get the Windows 10 boot screen, the num lock light on the keyboard goes out as does the optical light on my mouse. Both are USB.

I've done some googling and so far I can only see options to reinstall windows, or restore it.

Windows 10 seems to be unusable now, can anyone help get this working?

A:Gaming keyboard and mouse questions

The mouse buttons can come in handy for things like reloading during gameplay. Hitting the mouse button with your thumb can certainly be quicker than hitting it with a finger on the keyboard.

The sensitivity and the acceleration (measured in G's, for g force) can be quite important, but so is having a good quality mouse mat to go with it. Ultimately speaking the higher the rating the more accurate the mouse is, and how sensitive it is to movement during gameplay.

Having adjustable DPI settings can be useful for things like sniping, where you can knock it down a touch to make the scope sight move slower. I use my Logitech G9 mouse at the highest setting all the time, but the option to reduce it on the fly can be handy some times.

As for the keyboard, those extra buttons could be used to perform multi-button actions during gameplay, or just used to perform certain functions in replacement of the existing keyboard buttons in use.

I must admit that having owned many gaming keyboards, I've ever really used the macro functions, so someone else would probably be better explaining this.

The backlit keys are indeed very helpful, especially in late night gaming sessions.

A:Wireless keyboard/mouse and gaming...

My advice, get one with a rechargeable mouse, there is nothing worse than your mouse not working because the batteries have died, other than that, I doubt you'll notice a difference between wired and wireless as long as you have the only set in the house.

Hi. First post here, so please excuse me if I've posted this in the wrong subforum.

When playing games, I can't use the keyboard and click on the mouse at the same time. I have to first stop using the keyboard, then wait a few seconds, then be able to click with the mouse.

Any ways to fix this? It's really irritating when playing, especially with those shooter games. Sniping isn't really my speciality

I recently bought a HP Pavilion 15 n083sa, All is well with the system until I load an 3D games.

When moving using the WASD keys, I am unable to pan using the mouse pad, this makes it impossible to play many of my favourite games.

I've looked in the control panel and mouse settings and can't find any obvious solution, (I was hoping for a tickbox saying Disable mousepad while typing but there isn't one)

Am I missing something? I need these things to work simultaneously for gaming.

Thanks all!

Hiya,

I debated for about 5-10 minutes whether this would be a hardware or a games thread... Whilst technically the thread is concerning hardware advice it's more to do with their correlation to games?

Plus I figured regular Games forum go-ers might have slightly more experience in this field

Simple question really, I'm looking for a decent gaming mouse and keyboard, as all my life I've had boring simple keyboards and mice and this bottom of the line wireless Logitech is just embarrassing now!

Looking to spend about £70? Maybe a little more if the cost:quality ratio is higher, not necessarily looking for a definite combo, ie, if you can recommend a mouse and then a separate keyboard for the same price then go ahead

Thanks in advance,

Apologies if this is the wrong forum xD

I need a new keyboard and mouse for my pc.
It is a windows 10. The specs are on my profile.

I am going to get a gaming mouse and keyboard. Under ?100 if possible.

Can I get any sort? Are they plug and play?
Any recomendations? Any to avoid?

I've not found much information while conducting a search here on LogiTech Drivers. From what I understand LogiTech isn't creating drivers for Windows 7 Beta, should I just use the Vista versions despite getting a Compatiability Message?

A:LogiTech, G5 Gaming Mouse & Wave Keyboard

Yes. Vista drivers work on Windows 7. There should be no fear at all.
Also, if you want to help the drivers, install it in compatibility mode :
Right click on the install file, then properties.
Then, click on "Compatibility" tab then check "Run in compatibility" mode and select Windows Vista SP1
Click OK.

Hi Rick, the good news is all of your BSODs point to one culprit, the bad news is your CPU is likely going bad, probably the L2 Cache.

There are only a few things to rule out before we point all the blame on your CPU

1. Ensure you are not overclocking in any way until we have a stable system. Check the inside of the PC and make sure you have proper airflow. Clean the inside out with a can of air or low powered vacuum to remove any built up dust. Monitor temperatures

2. Restore your BIOS settings to default
Note: This is not your PC but the instructions are similar to load BIOS defaults.
How to Reset the System Setup (BIOS) back to Default on the Alienware X51 | Dell US

I would consider removing Norton and enabling Windows Defender

Use Revo to uninstall Norton
Completely Uninstall Programs And More With Revo Uninstaller

Enable Windows Defender
Windows Defender - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

With nearly all of your crash dumps pointing to the same problem, if the above doesn't work, I would replace the CPU

After about 1 minute the mouse scroll and keyboard stop working until I left click mouse. Tool bar on browser also greys out but comes back after left click. Video and sound also are choppy. Not sure if this is related. Flash keeps crashing. Any ideas whats wrong? Windows 7 pro. Asus desktop. This occurs on Firefox, Chrome and IE. This seemed to start after Microsoft update and Flash updates

A:Mouse scroll and keyboard stop working until left click of mouse

Hello mpmckee,

First run Antivirus, Malware, and Spyware scans. Remove anything the programs find.

Note: if you need some suggestions on which tools to use, let me know.

Afterwards, test functionally of mouse and keyboard.

If no change, run System Restore, choose a Restore point before the issue started.

Again test behavior of mouse and keyboard.

If the issue has been resolved, go ahead and reinstall windows Updates.

I got a wireless mouse Penguin Ambidextrous Vertical Mouse | Posturite. It is supposed to use generic windows 2.4 Ghz adapter. However, windows 7 is unable to find any drivers. The screenshot of device manager is appended. I tried various other ways e.g. take out other USB devices, reboot etc. I tried sfc /scannow . But the error persists. There is no usb.inf file in the C:\Windows . It works in Windows 8 machine but not in windows 7. other 2.4 Ghz mice work. The manufacturer says that they don't provide the drivers because the mouse uses generic drivers
Please advise what can be done.

A:2.4 Ghz wireless keyboard mouse driver not found (Penguin mouse)

Did you do a Search of the Windows Folder including subFolders and hidden Files? My Win7Ult has several such files but only 2 that are usb.inf only in subFolders of Windows, others have longer names but most appear to be associated with my AMD CPU/Gigabyte Motherboard setup.

A:black screen hard lock crash during fullscreen gaming

Mesososo, Was this a past issue even before the installation of Windows 7?
If so, this issue could be caused due to the fact your graphics driver does not fit the needs to play the game in full screen. This issue could be resolved by upgrading your graphics driver in your pc.

If games worked fine before the installation of Windows 7, Then you could be missing drivers and I would recommend you to locate drivers for your specific graphics card and download/install them.


Past Experience

I've had this issue before running Windows XP, which was due to the fact my graphics card did not fit the needs to play the online game. I had to upgrade the graphics card which did cost money ($$$) but is worth it if you would like to play the games in full screen.

A:How do I lock the keyboard?

I have never had an occasion to do this but you can try this.

Just hold down the windows logo key and press L and it will take you straight to the logon screen, then it doesn't matter what anyone presses unless they know the password.

If this doesn't work go to Google.com That is where i found this.

My view is that the F-Lock key is a hardware toggle on the keyboard electronics, not a state of a registry key. While I sympathise, I have doubts you could accomplish it in the PC registry.

Whenever I lock my pc either manually or Windows+L the keyboard gets stuck on the last key I press (I think). This means that if I want to unlock my pc, the letter L (when locking with Windows+L) gets spammed on the password box. On the other hand if I lock manually my pc and unlock it the Enter keys gets stuck.
I also noticed that when I lock my pc, the mouse starts moving slower. I currently use a Razer Blackwidow keyboard (with Synapse) and a Logitech G600 (with the corresponding software). Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Guys,

Since yesterday afternoon I have been having the same problem. Whenever i press the 5, 6, - or \ keys the main part of my laptop keyboard or 5 & 9 on the num pad the whole keyboard stops responding. Pressing any particular key does not fix it but mashing the whole number row will let me use the keyboard again.

I am running windows 8 on a HP ENVY dv6 Notebook PC. I have tried to update keyboard drivers and done a system restore to before the problem started but nothing has fixed the problem yet.

I am posting this for a friend who has problems with his keyboard.

He has Windows ME and a Hewlett Packard keyboard (SK 2501K). The keyboard keeps locking up and he is unable to type anything. This occurs when for example using MSN Messenger. When he goes from the first window to the second to type something the keyboard will lock up.

Does anyone knows his problem and how to repair it, he just bought this keyboard after his old one started to do this, so I think it is a windows problem.

Sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum.

First have your friend download and reinstall Microsoft VM from the fourth post listed in this thread.

Hello and welcome to TSG!

It could be the way the BIOS was set up. Check your BIOS settings -- reboot your computer and press either DEL or one of the F keys (the BIOS screen on start up should tell you) to get into the BIOS.

Scroll through it and one of the choices may be about Number Lock upon start up and "Enable" it.

Check the actual settings in your bios against peculiarities that you hardware might have or need ,eg. apic,
You might try a different slot for your ethernet card .

Hello,

I am having a strange problem. I have a laptop and a wireless keyboard. When I hit the Caps Lock button on my laptop keyboard it freezes all the other keys and I am unable to undo the Caps Lock or type anything. However, with my external keyboard I can turn off the Caps Lock and everything goes back to normal. Any clue what could be going on here?

Thanks

My guess is that this is an OS issue where it's getting confused between the built-in keyboard and the wireless keyboard. This could be an issue with driver used for the wireless keyboard, but it's not a hardware issue.

The arrow keys mostly used for games have suddenly started scrolling and I can't seem to stop it. Scroll lock does not seem to work. I have looked up every potential solution I could find and none of them work. I have finally tried another keyboard but it happens on that one as well. What have I done, and how can I fix it? Thanks for any help you can give me.

A:Scroll Lock key not found on my keyboard

Some smaller pc keyboards DO NOT HAVE A Scroll lock key. In the end, i ended up purchasing a new keyboard that was not the HP brand one i had above... to solve this issue. Im suprised you guys don't know about the smaller keyboards that you make yourself not having a scroll lock key on them.

Hi when I had this trouble with my Toshiba I found the BIOS needed updating and Drivers as well
Since having that done have had no trouble.
Go to the Toshiba Site type in your model as see if you have the latest Software and Drivers installed
If not then get it all from the site

I look at the keyboard when I am typing and not at the monitor, so it is annoying, after I have unknowingly pressed the CAPS LOCK key, to look up and see that my work is in uppercase. I am sure that I have read, somewhere, that an audible warning can be fixed to a keyboard's CAP LOCK key.

Am I right?

Best wishes, whatapalaver.

A:Keyboard Caps Lock Alarm ?

You are right whatapalaver.
Control panel>accessibility options>keyboard>toggle keys. Check toggle keys to play audible warning when caps lock, num lock and scroll lock are pressed.

Hi I have a problem with an Advent Laptop partial! on: Numeric lock keyboard only running Vista I loaned this spare laptop to my year old son whilst his Dell was away being repaired now he has returned the laptop back to me with what to me seems to be an unusual problem the numeric lock is permanently on most of the toggles F pads enter and scroll are not functioning It is impossible to get into the bios Numeric lock on: keyboard only partial! via F as this is also not functioning I note that Numeric lock on: keyboard only partial! during the boot the numeric lock is off and only comes on when current user is selected for windows I have been into regedit current user control panel and keyboard and the keyboard setting is set to and I have then reset it to however when the machine is rebooted and you go back via regedit to check the setting for the current user the keyboard has reset itself every time to I have also gone to default under regedit default control panel keyboard and reset the default from the long numeric string to and this remains constant however when I try to log back on as my normal password and current user the numeric via Regedit is seen to have reset itself again to The entire keyboard was replaced about months ago as it had a broken key pad I suppose the moral of the story is to not loan spare machines to sons who seem to treat laptops like mobile phones i e little respect and throw them all around the room I should also add that the combination Fn Numeric is also not functioning Using a mouse I am able to get into the front end screen and all of my files are intact but with the numeric locked and no enter pad then programs such as word are inoperable Any thoughts appreciated hardware software problem before I kick laptop and older son into a tidy bin

Where is the number lock on the KG-1450 keyboard?  On my keyboard there is clip board key where the number lock is found on most keyboards.

Hi there @Coel5?,Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel.I understand that you are looking for a num lock key on your keyboard. I am happy to help with this. I have a similar keyboard attached to an All-in-One, which also has a clipboard key, in place of the numlock key. The other functional keys that often share the numeric keypad, such as the arrows, home , pg up, pg dn, are all immediately to the left of the numeric keypad and the numeric keypad functions solely as a numeric keypad. So a numlock is unnecessary. Test it out and let me know, and if it does resolve your concern, then please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

The number lock and side keyboard on my hp dv7t-1000 doesn't work. What gives?
I also had the synaptics &#8211; input &#8211; synaptics ps/2 port touchpad update failed. How do I get it to go again?

Thanks in advance
 

A:Number lock and side keyboard

I have been able to use a usb keyboard when the keyboard on my laptop was giving me problems. If you can't borrow a keyboard to try, you should be able to buy one for $10 or less. You can then determine if the problem is the keyboard and not the computer or an OS problem.

BTW I replaced the faulty keyboard on my laptop with relative ease and at an economical cost.

You need to go into your CMOS settings (sometimes called "Setup"). This is when you first start your computer. Usually, you hit the "del" key right when the computer is first starting up. Pay attention when it first starts and it should tell you how to access the "Setup". Go to either "Standard CMOS setting" or "Advanced Settings" (I can't remember which one right now) and it will let you set it to the way you want it.
