Could you be more specific? What is the info on the manufacturer's label on the computers. What kind of mouse and keyboard do you have... PS/2 or USB? Start by unplugging and plugging in both, if you haven't tried that yet. Larry

It is usually the motherboard and it is often caused by someone pushing the computer against a wall and breaking the solder connections on the motherhboard. I didn't appreciate "dont give me that man" as reseating the keyboard or mouse plugs is the first step one does when troubleshooting this sort of problem. I may not have overlooked ps/2 if you wrote in clear-understandable English instead of chat room gibberish. Larry

>everyone checks

That is not been the case many times in my considerable experience and that instruction has fixed the problem many times, in fact, most times. I have also had to tell people to plug the power cable into their computer, turn on the surge protector, plug-in the monitor, turn-on the printer, put paper in the printer, turn on the speaker amplifier, plug the speakers into the sound card instead of the MODEM, which key is the “any” key (had to throw that classic one in), and many other things obvious to other people. As I did not know who you are and what your experience was, I started at step one and will continue to do so. Thanks for making your post easier to read. Larry
