Lost Keyboard (and possibly mouse)

#1
Hi,

I wonder if anyone could suggest something else to try.

I run a fairly generic PC with Windows 7 Home edition.

Last night I noticed my mouse acting strangly and nothing happening when I typed on the keyboard. I rebooted but the keyboard was not working so I couldn't even type in the password.

Eventually I unplugged the keyboard and found I could operate the on-screen keyboard to at least log on. When I plugged the keyboard back in the mouse froze.

REbooting again and using the onscreen keyboard to log on I restored from a time before the issue arose - no good.

Rebooting again I tried to install some keyboard drivers to make sure they were up to date - no good.

Anytime I plug in the keyboard to test functionality I lose the mouse function so I have to just reboot again.

can anyone suggest something else to try?

thanks
