This morning my keyboard and mouse started acting erractically. The keyboard pops into Caps without the Capslock being put on and letters also go missing as I type. Instead of numbers popping up weird symbols appear on screen.
When selecting items on the desktop my mouse selects multiple items. The scroll wheel is also not working. This is also happening on a regular keyboard I plugged in. My mouse is a Logitech M 325.
I tried to roll back to a previous restore point and got a message:
SYSTEM RESTORE FAILED. THAT DRIVE MAY BE CORRUPT AND AN UNSPECIFIED ERROR OCCURRED DURING SYSTEM RESTORE.
It was recommended that I run chckdsk. I did so and no errors were detected.
First, try clearing the CMOS to see if that resolves the issue. The clearing of CMOS can be useful in resolving some hardware conflicts. Just follow the steps below:
1. Unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Remove the battery. 3. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 4. Re-install the battery, plug in the charger / adapter if needed and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
If the clearing didn't work then next uninstall the mouse / keyboard driver, reboot the computer and then install a fresh copy. The link below is for a download of the available driver....
