    Keyboard and Mouse not working

    Hi
    I have a PC on which the mouse and keyboard no longer work, they both stopped in the middle of doing some work. I have plugged in a spare keyboard and mouse but they don't worj either.
    Would anyone have any ideas why and a possible fix.

    Thanks
    Dax

    Re: Keyboard and Mouse not working

    Wow, I don't think I have an answer, Dax. But I do have a question - are the mouse and keyboard PS/2 or USB? If PS/2, you did reboot or shutdown when you plugged in the replacements, right? I can't imagine both ports on a motherboard going bad at the same time, so maybe there's some other setting somewhere... Let me be thinking about this while we wait for another Lounger. By the way, is the machine running Win XP?
