Keyboard And Mouse Non Responsive / Freezes When Play Games


When i start playing a game, especially an fps, about every 1-2 mins the mouse becomes non responsive/freezes and sometimes the keyboard "joins in", for about 5 seconds. I haven't updated any drivers before the problem. Its really annoying when playing css i have fixed the crosshair on someones head an not being able to shoot. Looks like it happens randomly. - Vista 32-bit

Mouse And Keyboard Cut Out At Random Times When Play Games

This just started recently, but when i play warcraft 3 on my computer, my mouse and keyboard cut out at random times for 2-3 seconds and my master volume turns up and down randomly as well. It's really *bleep*ing annoying and i really wish i could find some way to fix it without having to reinstall the game (can't find my cd keys). I've already updated my drivers, restarted multiple times, turned the computer off and walked away for a couple days and nothing.

Computer Freezes, And Is No Longer Responsive

I've bought a new set up about 2 months ago and i have yet to get it working properly, as it always likes to freeze. The specs are:

- Gigabyte ga-p35-ds3l lga 775 intel p35 atx all solid capacitor intel motherboard

- Evga 256-p2-n751-tr geforce 8600 gt 256mb 128-bit gddr3 pci express x16 sli supported video card

- Intel core 2 duo e8400 wolfdale 3. 0ghz lga 775 65w dual-core processor model bx80570e8400

- Thermaltake tr2 w0070ruc 430w atx power supply

- Hynix 512mb ddr2 ram x2

I've never seen the cpu temp go over 39c, even right after a freeze up. What i mean by freeze is that the computer is no longer responsive (no i/o works) and the screen displays the last thing that i was doing, and i have to use the power button to restart the computer. The computer boots just fine, no beeps. I reformatted the hd and installed windows xp, but with windows installed the computer freezes either when "loading personal settings" or 10 minutes after loading windows. It was rare that it would get past loading personal settings w/o freezing though. (I had all of the new drivers for my hardware reinstalled as well).

Then i decided to just try a fresh install of ubuntu linux to see if the problem was just with windows. Ubuntu boots up just fine and if i don't move the mouse that much and just let the computer sit, it won't freeze for days, but after using the computer (just installing stuff, or browsing the internet) for half an hour or so, i'll get a freeze. I also get a freeze when i am in the bios, but only if i go into the menu to switch the vcore to something else. Just going into the menu, not actually changing anything in the menu. Anywhere else in the bios is just fine and won't freeze at all. I ran memtest86 and i always get a freeze (not an error) in test #5, no bsod's have popped up at all, only freezes. Can't think of anything else to say about it, if anyone has any ideas.

Intermittent Keyboard Problem - Keyboard Is Non Responsive

I bought a compaq presario sr1630nx a few months ago and i've noticed an intermittent keyboard problem for the last month or so. I don't know if it's a hardware or a software problem or how i would tell. The keyboard has a ps/2 connector. I have not changed any of the default hardware. Symptoms: i sometimes try to type and no keys on the keyboard do anything. The mouse works fine. I am not aware of performing any particular action before i notice that the keyboard is non-responsive.

Rebooting makes the keyboard work again. This problem occurs with a frequency of 2 times a day to once a week. I've installed more recent keyboard/mouse drivers for this machine (posted on the compaq site), but that's hasn't helped. Does anyone have an idea what the problem might be? Is there a utility that i could run when the problem happens that would give me more information?

Keyboard And Mouse Freeze When Playing Games

I have got a problem with my mouse and my keyboard. When i press both of them at the same time (and i always do this because most of the time i am playing crappy games like wow counter strike etc you know you cant play without pressing both your keyboard and your mouse ) they freeze i cant do nothing for 1-2-3 sec and the pc starts beeping (tititi pipipi the sound u know). Ive changed 3 keyboards 3 mouse bought new etc updated drivers all such things even reinstalled windows. The problem is still there. 4-5 months ago i had the same problem i added 1gb ram to my pc and the problem was gone but here it is again. I have tried with both wireless and non wireless keyboards mouse.

Mouse And Keyboard Will Lock Up For A Sec When Playing Games

When playing games online i notice a wierd occurence. For example, in cs:s or cs 1. 6, when i am running around, for a second my mouse and keyboard will lock up and continue to go the direction i was going. I think this is due to the fact that i am using a wireless mouse and keyboard and just want to confirm this. Nothing goes wrong with the graphics or the gameplay.could it be anything else?

Pc Restarts Instantly When Play Games

When i play games like quake 4 sometimes my pc restarts, just instantly. No warnings or any type of 'blue screen of death', just restarts, literally instantly when i least expect it. Now i've checked my 3500+ and the temps are fine at about 39c idle and my 7600 gt at about 51c idle. The much i can say is my antec 420 watt power supply was making really worrying noises lately and stinks of radiation. Sometimes i hear little sparks. My ram the crucial ballistix dd400 at 2-2-2-5 and i hav'nt really tested them yet for temps. My pc has been running just fine for months until my games started to bust up like this. The motherbard im using is the a8n-e rev2. The crappy power supply is the antec 420 watt. I cant even find its real name on the net so it must be cheap. It orginally came with a case. But if needs be i'm more than happy to buy an enermax liberty 500watt.

Pc Freezes When Play Ut2004 Game

I did a clean install of xp32, installed and updated all the drivers fine, avoided installing the swe ide driver for the nvidia chipset, and the comp is running smooth. Whenever the pc reaches 100% cpu usage, it takes a while to drop down, and the pc gets super laggy. The main problem happens when i try to play ut2004, w/ all the settings cranked up. The main menu loads fine, but after about 30 seconds, everything gets laggy. The mouse even lags like ***. If i don't exit out, the pc freezes. I remember when i first upgraded my comp to this setup, i played ut all the way cranked up just fine. Also hl2 all the way. I don't know what happened since then that caused this problem. I defragged my hdd, ran antivirus. I tried testing both sticks of my 512 ram, that's not the problem. I tried switching around the psu cables so there's nothing else attached to the wires that's attached to my gfx cables. I tried using forceware coolbits2 to make the 2d and 3d clockspeeds the same. The only thing i didn't try yet was changing my psu. My 400w antec is 20 pin, but my mobo takes 24 pin. But i plugged in the 4pin ez-plug on my mobo, which is what users of 20pin psu have to do.

Computer Goes Down To 4 Bit Colour When Play Games

My modem can only connect once. If it is disconnected or the computer has been on for a while, the moden gets an error 50: request not supported. Unless i constaintly have music playing while i dial up to the internet, the sound will not work while i am on the internet, but sometimes works after i disconnect. Occasionally when i play games with high graphics, the computer goes down to 4 bit colour and has a "serious error". I would prefer not to have to re-install.

Pci Video Card To Play Flash Games

What's the best pci video card to play flash games?

My girlfriend plays farmville, farmtown, and various other flash games. Running a dell with older 478 mb with 2. 4ghz p4. Thing is pegged at 100% usage and chokes. Thinking the best idea is to stick in a card that flash can be offloaded to. Looks like the 8400 gs has some anomalies and the 9400 is a little high. Any input is appreciated.

Screen Flicker / Strobe When Try To Play Games In Sli

I recently got a second gtx280 gpu. I now run it in sli with my other card. Thing is when i go to play battlefield 2142 i get a flickering or strobing of color. When i disable sli it goes away. I also had this problem with battlefield bad company 2 beta. I am wondering if anyone knows why this is. Is it perhaps that one card is an evga ssc and the other is a stock leadtech? I have the current driver. Not the one that nvidia messed up but the one right before it.

Setting Up A Two Computer Lan To Play Multiplayer Games

I want to connect two computers to each other so i can play multilayer games with friends, without worrying about pk'ers, crackers, and idiots. I went to best buy and got a cat6 cable, thinking all i needed to do is plug the two computers together and start playing. I was wrong. I went back to best buy and then they told me that i needed a "crossover cable" because the kind of cord i got needed a hub and another cable. So i traded my cable for a crossover one. I then came home with the notion that all i needed was to plug the two computers together and to know each other's ips to play. Again, i was wrong. After struggling for hours on end in the network connections and calling around for people who might know, we (me and my friend) wasted the whole weekend when we could've been death matching in a halo, half-life 2, and postal 2 binge of all binges. I come to you for a very simple, very short step-by-step instruction in the connecting two computers with one crossover cable. I'm talking so short that i could print the entire thing on one piece of paper. Thrice.

Monitor Doesn't Adjust To Scale When Play Games

When i play games, my monitor doesn't adjust to scale there are certain games that while i play, do not resize and adjust to my crt monitor. This was never a problem until i installed my new ati radeon 9800 all in wonder. Before i used an ati radeon 7000 and most of my games, such as diablo 2 and starcraft would resize accordingly. Now, there are tons of games that i want to play that for some reason, wouldn't readjust to my monitor. Text would sometimes be stretched out or squashed or that the screen would stretch out completely to the point i cannot see the icons on the side. At the moment, the only games that i've tried so far that adjust to my monitor/resize is warcraft 3, diablo 2 and unreal tournament. I'm having problems with starcraft. The image tends to look squashed.

Windows Xp Freezes While Playing 3d Games

My system freezes up whenever i play a 3d game, mainly everquest. It used to do it rarely, than it became more and more common. Now i can't go a few minutes without it locking up. At first i thought it might be heat, so i cleaned out every bit of dust from my system, took off side panel and had a fan blowing on the case, it didn't help (than i monitored the system temp, i idol at about 40*c, and when it froze i was at about 44*c). I tried switching the slot of my ram, didnt fix it. I tried upgrading my sound/video drives, didnt fix it. I took out my soundcard, didnt fix it. I formatted and installed my os again, didnt fix it. I reinstalled the game, didnt fix it. I tried underclocking my fsb, didnt fix it. I disabled my sound drivers, didnt fix it. The only other thing i could think about doing is getting a better power supply, but i don't want to waste my money if i'm not guarenteed its gonna fix it. I have an athlon xp 1800+, windows xp professional, 30gig hd, geforce 2 mx400 vid. Card, soundblaster live! 5. 1 soundcard, k7t266 pro motherboard from msi (got it around october), and 256 mb of ddr crucial ram. I am very frustrated at this point, and i am very close to taking a hammer to my computer. I recently downloaded 3dmark to check if the freezing was sucluded to eq, but 3dmark also froze on me.

Total Loss Of Control - Computer Freezes When Play Game

I just recieved a new computer and it seems to do normal things like desktop work or internet browsing fine, but if i try to play a game, it locks up. I do not over clock anything. When it does this, there is a total loss of control, the sound goes into a loop, and the only thing i can do is a hard shutdown. It did this with everquest2 within the first 10 to 15 mins. I lowered all the graphics way down, and it then happened while zoning my character in. The computer came with age of empires 3, so i tried that. It lets me play for maybe 20 minutes and then would do it. Now, it will not even get past the intro movie. I installed the drivers for an amd dual core processor on a 32 bit windows system from amd and this did not help. I reduced the power management settings to the minimal settings per amd's website. I did all the windows updates it would give me, i upgraded dot net to 2. 0. I upgraded directx to the newest version 9c. I ran the dxdiag and it didnt show any issues. I ran a memory test using the windows program and it did 2 passes with no errors. The video cards were set for crossfire mode when i recieved it. I have tried to install the most recent radeon driver for xp multimedia edition with no luck. Right now i have set it back to the driver that came with the cards, which says it is 8. 24. I tried one of the omega drivers too, and it had no effect (was 6. 7 i believe). I tried updating the sound driver because the sound was looping during the freeze, and that didnt help so i installed an audigy gamer card and disabled the onboard sound. This gave me the same result so i uninstalled it. I called the tech support and he said it sounded like a video or hard drive issue and wanted me to try one card at a time, moving them to different pci-e slots and seeing if it would happen then. I tried each card alone in each slot and age of empires would go for about 20 mins and then freeze. (One of the pci-e slots looks slightly warped, but even if i dont have a video card in there, it still freezes, and i was also able to play agoe of empires for 20 mins with a card in that slot) i have tried playing with the side cover off and a fan going as well to see if it was heat related. The cards seem to hover in the 45-51 degrees.computer specifications:

Gamer fire 1600 (from ibuypower)

Msi Nvidia 6600 Freezes On Games And Restarts

I have a msi nvidia 6600, and a couple days ago i was playing video games without a glitch in sight. Than all the sudden i try to play my game, and little tiny red dots and other colors appear all over, than my computer restarts. After an hour of all these dots and glitches my computer usually goes back to normal. But i can't play computer games without it glitch up. I'm almost positive its the graphics card because i have tried getting new drivers, reinstalling old drivers, the works. I'm just not sure what to do from here.

New Macbook - Keyboard Freezes

I bought a new 'santa rosa' macbook on 11-2-07 and have been enjoying the process of setting it up and getting familiar with leopard. One thing disturbs me though: periodically as i have used it for the last two days, the keyboard will freeze, allowing no text input. I can still move the mouse, click on windows and start/stop programs, but the keyboard acts as if it's dead. The caps-lock light won't even come on. This condition lasts for a minute or two and then normal operation resumes. It happens every few hours (three times in six hours of use yesterday, two or three times today). I haven't been able to correlate this with any particular thing i'm doing, either when it begins or ends. What's going on?

Repeating Unresponsive Keyboard In Games

In various games like l4d2, tf2, resident evil 5 and dragon age, i've been having a problem where my keyboard presses repeat as though i were holding the key down. This is mixed with unresponsiveness, where i will press a key and not get a reaction in the game until a second later. This is despite high frame-rates and low latency. e.g. I am using wasd to walk around, i press w and there is no response, after a brief pause my character moves forward and after letting go of the w my character will continue walking forward a bit longer than i pressed. It happens with other keys too. Maybe it's linked to another problem i've been having, which is that in etw, things sometimes get quite choppy suddenly after playing for a little and i get some weird noises. It's not a case of stuff being stuck in the keyboard, since ordinary typing doesn't produce this problem. Oh and also, the problem will often go away temporarily when i restart my pc. I haven't established any kind of pattern for when it happens. I'm using an apple keyboard and windows 7 pro x64. I did about 3 passes of memtest86 and no errors turned up. It happens with or without a cpu overclock.

And like in fear to slide tackle someoen it requires you to use 2 keys. And i cant do that. Is that just the keyboard or is there a way i can fix this?

Edit, actually i jsut noticed i can push controll alt delete and it have task manager pop up. And i can push alt tab to get out of games. So idk whats wrong. It still doesnt work in game.

Ms Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 Locks Up In Games

I had a natural multimedia keyboard from microsoft connected through ps/2. Nice board, but loud. So i got the ms ergonomic keyboard 4000 that just came out. Its very nice but in bf2 it locks up when i press too many keys unlike my old keyboard. If i press 3 buttons at once, then let go of one and press another while still holding the other two, nothing happens, i have to let go of all buttons and press all again for it to respond. This is messing up my helicoptering. Can someone tell me what can be done? Is it the fact that this keyboard is connected through usb, or is it the software, or is it the keyboard? Is there anything i can do?

Keyboard Keys Stick When Playing Games

Since i upgraded to service pack 3 (winxp), i've been having some issues regarding my keyboard. I must notice that when i upgraded to sp3, i also upgraded my whole cpu. Whenever i'm playing, sometimes the keys "stick", but not physically. Example: i'm playing battlefield 2, and i'm moving around as usual, but then i release the left key, and my character keeps going to the left, when the key itself is in it's idle position. I need to press once again left to "unbug" the character. It happens with different frequencies. Although it's not constant, it does happens a moderate ammount of times whenever i'm playing. For some reason, this doesn't seems to happen in windows (messenger for example).

Mouse Intermittently Freezes During Gameplay

Here's what's going on, this system was running perfectly fine for about a year, then out of nowhere, the mouse would stop responding randomly while playing games. The rest of the system was fine. I could type, open applications and do everything with the keyboard while the mouse was locked up. I started by wiping the drive with windows clean, and installed just my drivers, wow and cs:s since those were the two games i was playing at the time. When that didn't work, i tried swapping out the usb keyboard and mouse for ps/2 keyboard and mouse, but the problem persisted. After a while of putting up with it, i noticed the northbridge chipset (nf4) fan was varying in speed. I replaced it with a thermaltake cooler with no luck. While i tried different things, i noticed that sometimes when my machine booted and listed the irqs for onboard devices, it would show usb with an irq, but most of the time it would show ' na ' for usb controllers. Then i gave up and picked up a cheapy ecs board with the same onboard periferals (nf4). I thought my problems were over and i started an rma for the board. Then while i was playing, the mouse locked up again and i could still use the keyboard and the system was responsive just like before. I borrowed a 7950gt from my roommate and tried that in the machine, but that didn't fix it. I noticed it wasn't that bad this time though. Trying to think of what it is that is different, i opened winamp and started listening to music. Almost instantly it got 10 times worse. That's it! So i pulled the x-fi sound card and fired up wow. I played for about an hour and a half when i started noticing it again. Only this time it wasn't nearly as bad. But i'm out of ideas. The os has no trouble booting, and had no trouble installing xp again. I let memtest86+ run overnight and it came up with zero errors. With that i ruled out cpu and memory. The only two things left in my machine are the psu and the hard drives. The drives are fairly old, but i'm hoping someone here has some advice that i could take before replacing the psu and hard drives.computer specifications:

Asus a8n-sli deluxe
Amd x2 4400+
Antec 600w psu
Seagate 120g sata i
Maxtor 120g sata i

2x1gb ocz dual channel ddr400
