the other day my mouse stopped functioning, it didn't seem to be a mouse issue since the indicator light on the reciever still worked so i closed everything and restarted my computer.

problem persisted so i plugged in a generic optical mouse as a test. the problem continued.

i unplugged my keyboard and the problem still continues.

at this point i'm certain its in my software, but unsure where.

problem:

mouse commands suddenly don't function or lag.
internet will randomly go back pages when i attemt to click on something.
computer acts like there are ghost inputs even when using on screen keyboard.
computer just freezes up when more than one program is open.

specs:

windows 7 64-bit, updated last night
pentium processor
4 gb ram
currently using ie, problem noticeable in firefox and chrome, too
kaspersky antivirus, out of license

any more info provided at request

right now struggling to submit problem as my computer won't accept ledt mouse click on post new topic, but will accept left mouse button on onscreen keyboard allowin me to type. will try alt+tab to make this forum window active. no progress will try just tabbing

Testing keyboard on a family member's computer. Unfortunately, I am not testing on the same operating system, this is a 32-bit Windows XP computer.

I did find that my PS/2 keyboard did have a bent pin, which I straightened using a mechanical pencil. I will now look at the port on my computer and try the keyboard there. I'm unsure how the keyboard pin got bent, since the only time I've taken it out was long before the problem began and that was to move the computer to another room. I will test if there is still a problem on my primary computer.

still doesn't function on my win 7 machine. ps/2 port might be bad since no lights even. problem is persisting and now causing my mouse not to wake up when it goes to sleep. i have to turn it on and off to restore functionality.

edit: computer acts as though keyboard is connected. turning on onscreen keyboard and using it today was a problem as i repeatedly have to turn on and off mu=y mouse to do so.

I hadn't turned my computer on in a week. During that time I found a USB keyboard that I had used with my old computer (my new one came with the PS/2 keyboard I had been using). I cleaned up my old keyboard and plugged it in.

So far it seems to work. The real test will be after I leave it on and idel for a couple of hours. I'm starting to believe that the problem may actually be with my PS/2 port. Since switching windows seems to work fine. To give it a really good test I loaded a large Excel spreadsheet that I have and it didn't even bat an eye.

I'll edit this comment in about three hours with info on whether or not it's truly fixed. If so then it was probably that port.

Hi -
Have you checked in Device Manager for any red or yellow ( ! ) or ( ? ) marks beside the keyboard , mouse , USB devices , or any other devices ??

Thank You -

If the problem persists and you don't want to try a complete OS reinstall, as long as the keyboard and mouse wasn't super expensive you can find a cheap keyboard and mouse almost anywhere, it will probably save you more time.

My mouse isn't a cheap mouse. But the keyboard that I'm currently using is a different one.
