Computer Can't Detect Keyboard When Mouse Is Connected


I always get a "cannot detect keyboard, press f1 to continue" error msg during startups unless i disconnect my usb mouse; but i'm free to connect my mouse again when i boot into windows. This first started when i replaced the old pci graphics card i had with an agp graphics card while the old card is still in the system; so i thought it might have been an irq conflict issue (i had alot of ide devices connected to the computer). I have since tried removing either the pci card or the agp card and other extra ide devices, but the problem still persists. I've also tried switching the cmos battery from another computer, didn't help either.

Keyboard And Mouse Freeze - Must Unplug Computer

Nearly everyday my iq504 will suddenly just freeze up. The mouse and keyboard are completely unresponsive as well as the touchscreen. Ctrl-alt-del does nothing. The only choice i have is to unplug the computer (basically crashing eveything i may have had open at the time) and then restarting it up. Sometimes this happens while i am in the middle of using internet explorer, sometimes using microsoft money, sometimes using ms-outlook, etc. I have also had instances where everything was fine, i get up to get a soda, come back and i am frozen up. I wasn't even touching the computer and only left it for a couple minutes and this happens. Is this happening to me uniquely or do others here experience this as well. If so, has anyone found a solution? I've already downloaded the latest drivers from the hp website. I don't know what else to try at this point.

Message: No Mouse Is Connected - Mouse Stop Working

Every 30 minutes or so of using my pc causes my mouse to stop working. When this happens everything else continues to work. Also on occasions when the mouse is connected normally a message appears on start up telling me that no mouse is connected. These problems have occured with 3 different mice and with mice connected to both usb and the normal mouse port. Therefore i think the problem is my computer rather that dodgy mice.

Computer Can't Detect Hdd

I have a very weird problem, once i boot my computer the memory shows and all is ok, then it gets to the drive detection (hdds, cds etc. ) It writes the line "detecting ide drives. " And just gets stuck, i tried:

- Only plugging my dvd writer without my hdd - the computer detects it, all is ok and it keeps on booting. - Plugging nothing at all - the computer just writes:
Master - none
Sec. Master - none
Slave - none
Sec. Slave - none
And keeps on booting. - Changed the ide cable - didn't help. - Changed the ide port from the motherboard - didn't help. - Put a different hdd - didn't help. - Reset the bios, meaning, cleared the cmos by removing the battery, switching the jumper back and forth - didn't help. - The jumpers are ok (hdd is on 'master or single' and dvd is on 'slave')

I don't know what to do, maybe it has something to do with the bios? I don't know much about the bios. Does anyone have any tips? I really don't know what to do anymore.

Computer Cannot Detect Usb 2.0 External Hdd

My computer cannot detect my usb 2. 0 external hdd, it was working only a few minutes ago, then i removed it through "safely remove hardware" after that i realized i forgot something so i plugged it back on. The light of my external hdd is on, but my computer isn't responding, it isn't showing any signs of another hdd in "my computer" and also in the "safely remove hardware" thing. I tried in my other computer and it's the same. I've scanned through for viruses previously, and cleared 3 trojans. Shouldn't be of a problem tho. Is my newly bought external hdd faulty ? Or has my computer gone mad?

P/s i also got this common problem that my external hdd couldn't be read directly, i have to - rightclick - explore. I believe this is a common n00b mistake i have done to my hdd or something.

Computer Wont Detect Pci Video Card

I recently tried to install a pci video card on a friends computer but when i re-booted the computer it was not detected. I dont have detailed specs on the computer but here are a few things:

He has a celeron cpu, diamond multimedia internal modem, his video card was manufactured by aopen, intel motherboard. If this makes a difference the computer is about 3-4 years old. The computer was givin to him from his former employer so i dont have the manuel to the motherboard to see if it has something to do with the bios settings. I tried to find his motherboard manual on-line but had no luck. I advised him to return the pci card and get a agp video card instead.

Whats wrong with it?

Computer Suddenly Won't Detect Hard Drives

Ok, so i was installing a new dvd-rw drive i got and it was going good, windows xp recognized it, i was burning stuff. Then nero gives the error "connection interrupted".

Computer Wont Detect Hard Drives When Raid Enabled

I've gotten them to work before in raid, recently i formatted my drives and i had set the bios to 'defaults'. Well, the drives are formatted. I can go to bios and my hds appear, i go to enable raid and save the settings only to return to bios and see they're gone. And when i hit f10 to go into the raid setup, it shows both of them but they are in red highlight. Ive been messing around in the settings see if i turned anything on last time but have had no luck. I've got a feeling its something simple i'm just not seeing. Edit: 680sli mobo|2x wd250 hd|geforce 8800gtx|2 gb corsair|core2 duo e6600

Print From Printer That Is Connected To Another Computer

How do i print off a printer that is connected to another computer? I have a modem that both computers are plugged into. The printer is plugged into one of them. I downloaded the driver for both computers. I want to print stuff from the computer that the printer isn't connected directly to. Answer:- let's call the computer that the printer is attached to, a, and the other computer as b. Enable file / printer sharing on a. Mark the printer on a as shared (put a password is better). Install the printer driver on b. Make sure a and b are on the same workgroup/domain/network (i.e. They can see each other in network neighborhood or whatever it's called nowadays). Browse to the network/workgroup from b, and find the shared printer, then connect to it. Now you should be able to print to it.

Computer Reboots When Connected To Internet

So, my brother has had several computer issues in the past, and all of them have been fixed by reinstalling windows and wiping his computer, great. Its getting a little old now though. His current issue now is that his computer will reboot the second it logs in to his user account, i let it run and reboot and just happened to catch it while it was working, went to the internet to download some stuff that might help fix the issue and it began rebooting again. I took out his wireless antenna and its working now but he needs internet, what could be the problem with it and how can i fix it?

I'm running avg, disc clean-up and disc defragger right now, just for the heck of it, not sure if it will help, and i've gone in and looked for weird processes and downloads and files, but that's about all i know how to do and it all looks normal, and avg hasn't found anything malicious.

Hack Into Computer That Is Not Connected To Internet

Is it possible to hack into a computer that is not connected to the internet? The reason i'm asking is because my best friend is going back to college in a few days and is dorming with one other guy. He's in the journalism program and is a bit paranoid that his roommate (who is in the same level in the program) might steal his documents and whatnot. There's wi-fi internet connection available in the dorm, but my friend does not utilize it; he says he 'only' uses his computer for typing up articles. I don't know how true that is, but whatever. So is it possible for the roommate to "hack" into my friend's computer (via another computer) even if my friend's not connected to the internet?

Printer On A Wireless Network Without Having It Connected To Computer

Okay so my family wants to buy a printer that can be used on our wireless network without having it connected to a computer (so the computer doesn't have to be on, they won't leave computers on). Anyways my father was wanting to get a fax/copier/printer combo. Do printers today have like a wireless antenna that can get on a wireless network? Is there an attachment that will put it on a wireless network? Or can we connect it directly to the wireless router? And, which way is the best way?

Cannot Access Printer Connected To Network Computer

Why can i not access a printer connected to another networked computer, even though i can access its documents? I have a desktop that has two printers connected to it via usb. The desktop is configured for network access, and is accessible by every computer in the house. I have three laptops with a wireless connection. All three can successfully connect to the desktop and see it's documents and connected printers. Only two of these three laptops can access the printer and print on it. The two laptops that can print have windows 7 and vista. The third laptop that cannot print has vista. It can see the desktop, it can connect to the desktop, it can see files, read files, and create files on the desktop. However, when i try to add the printer from the desktop to the list of printers on the laptop, it says access denied - however the other two laptops added the printer fine and can print without any trouble. Again, this one laptop that can't print seems to have full access to the desktops files. Any idea how to get this third laptop to add and send print jobs to the printer connected to the desktop "hub" computer? Because "add a new printer" button isn't working and continues to give me errors.

Sd Memory Card Not Show On Computer When Connected

I have a 2gb sd memory card but it did not show on computer whenever i connect it with my computer?

Answer:- sometimes they are hidden under one of the drives, in you media reader, open up in my computer. If each drive doesn't show the names like sdmedia or something like that, then open each drive one at a time, like if it says f, g, h, i drives, open each one one at a time then the card will show a misc file and another file, open that other file and it will have all your info on it. If you try all of them and it doesn't show up, then your card reader is too old to read it or your card is not compatible to the reader.

Scan With Scanner Connected To Mac Os X With Windows Computer

Is it possible to scan with a scanner/printer connected to a mac os x with windows computers? I have the hp officejet 6500 scanner/printer. This printer/scanner is connected to my imac. I am able to scan and print with this imac. And i am able to print only over my network. I am able to print with any windows computer in my house using bonjour. When i open bonjour on the windows computers, it sees the printer connected to the imac. And when i print with the windows computers, it sends the document or whatever were printing to the imac connected to the printer/scanner. But the only thing is, i want to scan the same way. If i go to system preferences on the imac and go to print & fax and then i click my scanner/printer and the box is checked that says "share printer over network" and then when i click scan at the top, i see a button that says, open scanner, and another box that is checked that says, "share scanner over network. " Is it possible to share my scanner the same way as i share my printer?

I also have this apple product called time capsule. And i haven't used the print over network feature with that. Can i scan over the network using the tc?
