Ubuntu :: The Mouse And The Keyboard Will Stop Responding And The Screen Sometimes Get Divided Into 4 Smaller Quadrants?

Jul 15, 2011

My ubuntu session will freeze and stop working. For example, the mouse and the keyboard will stop responding and the screen sometimes get divided into 4 smaller quadrants of the current screen.The only thing I can do after it freezes is reboot the machine.Would anyone know what is causing this?Also, I keep having to move my optical mouse from the usb slot into a ps/2 slot.And the same thing with my keyboard. I have 2 keyboards, so I can plug in the old ps/2 keyboard instead of the new usb keyboard. (the devices keep flipping)My machine is an AMD 3400 with an Epox mobo. Nothing like this has ever happened before, and I have been using ubuntu for more than 4 years without any problems.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Freezes Randomly - Keyboard And Mouse Stop Responding

Feb 4, 2011

I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on other machines before and have not experienced this problem. Occasionally, the system will lock up. They keyboard and mouse stop responding (my keyboard status lights no longer respond, but my optical mouse light is still on). I can ssh to the machine, and it seems to work as normal. I kill processes that are open on my desktop through ssh, (i.e., Firefox), and I notice when I switch back, I still have the same frozen image on my screen. I have looked at the following files to determine any issues with the GPU:

Ubuntu :: KDE Apps Stop Responding To Mouse/keyboard But Plasma Still Works?

Jul 30, 2011

Hey folks. I'm not sure how to describe this properly but periodically Kubuntu 11.04 will stop responding to my mouse and keyboard EXCEPT that Plasma, or what I assume is Plasma, still responds to mouse events. I can launch and exit the desktop cube and desktop grid but can't access my panels or any application controls. The only fix I've found is to do a hard power cycle.

Does this behavior ring any bells for anyone? This is the last hurdle I've got between me and using Kubuntu 11.04 full time on my Samsung RV515.

Fedora Hardware :: Keyboard / Mouse Stop Responding; Replugging Isn't Registered?

Jan 23, 2011

Today my keyboard and or mouse repeatedly stop responding some minutes after boot. Currently the mouse stops responding after a few seconds of movement immediately after boot. Yesterday I used the machine most of the day, yet this issue didn't arise. Today I used it for a few hours before the issue developed. I did a full system update from the fresh install yesterday night. It's therefore possible that this issue has arisen as a result of the update, and that today the onset was delayed for some reason.

Earlier today I had the same problem with the keyboard. I replaced the batteries thinking that this was the cause. Now it looks like both keyboard and mouse are affected by the same problem. When the mouse stops functioning and the keyboard remains active, I unplug the mouse and replug it in, but it still does not respond, and only the unplug, and not the replug, are detected and logged in dmesg. I noticed ever since I installed Fedora yesterday that plugging in new usb devices after boot did not result in them being recognised, and that if I unplugged a mouse or keyboard and plugged them in again they would not work (requiring a hard reset). Currently the machine isn't usable as I cannot use the mouse for more than a few seconds. I haven't tried a PS2 connection, and currently I have keyboard access.

Hardware:

Fujitsu LZ945230BH1 USB Mouse
Microsoft Arc Bluetooth Wireless USB Keyboard
Running Fedora 14.

I haven't tried PS2. My keyboard and mouse appear to be working again (25 mins and still responsive).I unplugged all USB devices except for the keyboard, mouse, and wifi dongle. This appears to have solved the problem. Other devices that were plugged in were a USB to SATA external HDD caddy (powered off), and a serial USB connection to a Sheeva Plug computer (mini server). how I can use all my USB ports in future without this issue arising?

Fedora :: Fedora 11+KDE - Login Screen Not Responding To Keyboard And Mouse After Update?

Nov 10, 2009

It's two days now I'm in deep troubles after my last "yum update". The system boots as usual, the graphical login pops up the normal way but no input is handled by either the internal keyboard (the system is a laptop), the mouse pad, the external USB mouse and keyboard.

The hardware itself seems to be working as I can pop up the BIOS menus and even edit the GRUB booting line. But, after GRUB there's no possible input. I've tried to boot the system with the Fedora 11 DVD, rescue menu and then chroot. This in order to run a "yum update" in the hope that the problem was in some broken update. No chance: there's no update.

My questions are:

1. Is there a way to boot Fedora withou any graphical interface from GRUB (or anything else to skip the KDE)?

2. Is there a way to have the (cabled) network activated at boot *before* the graphical login?

3. What the he** is happening to my otherwise pefectly working laptop?

Slackware :: Windows Stop Responding To Keyboard (13.1)?

Jun 1, 2010

I upgraded to 13.1 from 13.0 a few days ago. I have a Toshiba Satellite L3655D that I leave on constantly. Twice now, I have woken up to windows (urxvt and firefox) that don't accept keyboard input. I can paste into them and they respond, clicking is fine, but the keyboard either barely sends or is completely ignored - if I tap a bunch of keys, one or two might go through, eventually. New windows work fine, so I have to replace everything I have open.

edit:I switched to XFCE for 2 days and the issue didn't appear, but my other laptop with the same fluxbox settings also did not have any problems. I switched the original laptop back to fluxbox (and happened to upgrade the ATI drivers around the same time) and haven't had it happen since. If this happens to you, try restarting X.

Ubuntu :: Keyboard And Mouse Not Responding?

Jan 17, 2011

Kubuntu 10.04 all updates until today.

All of the sudden my keyboard and mouse are not working any more. At login window keyboard is working OK so I can login (mouse is not working), but after login, keyboard is not responding unless I press the key for few moments (perhaps a second) until a keyrepeat begins. Only then key is accepted and echoed on screen.

Funny thing is, if I login as some other user, everything works as expected.

I have already ran Xorg -configure as su, but it didn't resolve the problem.

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard & Mouse Not Responding 11.2?

Nov 12, 2009

I just installed the new OpenSuSE 11.2 release and after coming up in graphical mode the keyboard and mouse are not responding at all.

After that via a remote login force the machine back to runlevel 3 and this makes it able to login to the console and trying to start sax2 to make a new X configuration.

Well it doesn't read the old configuration but gets stuck as well.

The install was an update from OpenSuSE 11.1.

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard And Mouse No More Responding?

Feb 5, 2010

On our SuSe 11.1 PC keyboard and mouse are no more responding although it did work properly until yesterday. We shut down the computer yesterday evening and today they do not work anymore. But it is not a hardware problem, we can use keyboard and mouse until Grub bootloader, but as soon as we start a Linux session (doesn't matter if normal or failsave mode) the keyboard and mouse are disabled, we can see that because the NumLock and CapsLock LEDs are switched off immediately.

We have no idea what happened. We booted from CD into rescue mode and mounted the hard disk manually and checked some logfiles, but the boot.log tells us that USB keyboard and mouse are detected, as well as the Xorg.0.log file. And we found no indication that keyboard or mouse are disabled or something like that.

Ubuntu :: Mouse And Keyboard Responding Very Slow Via Synergy After 11.04 Upgrade / Fix It?

May 2, 2011

Is anyone else having issues with their mouse/keyboard responsiveness via Synergy after upgrading to 11.04?

If I plug mouse and keyboard directly into the desktop the issue goes away. But when I connect via QuickSynergy and share my mouse/keyboard the mouse is very slow and has low sensitivity.

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard & Mouse Not Responding At Login?

Mar 7, 2010

I recently installed suse 11.2 on my system and during the install the keyboard (Microsoft internet keyboard PS/2) and mouse (Microsoft optical mouse USB with scroll wheel) worked perfectly, but once I reached the login screen they both became unusable.

I also tried rebooting into failsafe mode but once reaching the login screen the same happened again, the only key that seems to work is the 'F Lock' key and the optical light appears on the mouse.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Mouse And Keyboard Stop Working?

Jun 7, 2010

I was having a problem with the mouse and keyboard randomly failing to work after upgrading to version 10.04. I tried both the 32 and 64 bit versions. The problem went away after I edited the file /etc/default/grub and changed the following line:

from
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
to
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash noapic nolapic"

If you are unable to open a terminal window, try doing the following

Ctrl+Alt+F1
Log into you account.
sudo nano /etc/default/grub

After saving your changes and exiting nano you can reboot by using the halt command.(FYI Ctrl+Alt+F7 gets you back into X server -- but you need to reboot for the change to take effect) Update: problem recurred. I had to do Ctrl+Alt+F1 to log into a console. I executed 'ps aux | more' to find the PID for X.Using the PID I restart X with 'sudo kill -S SIGTERM <PID>'.Once it started up again it was fine.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mouse And Keyboard Stop Working With 9.10 AMD 64 Bit?

Jan 11, 2010

System was running fine under 8.04 but decided to update. The live CD works fine but after install, the Mouse and Keyboard stop working under 9.10. Even the keyboard power button is off. Disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard or the mouse does not . AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ PS/2 Keyboard and PS/2 mouse

Everything else seems OK but how would I know without the keyboard or mouse. The keyboard turns off right before the first Ubuntu screen. The Numlock will go off and then nothing. Tried to run dpkg - fix broken packages after booting to repair. All I get is fail to fetch http: (whatever )Could not resolve us.archive.ubuntu.com. Update: Alt-F3 ... then Booting to terminal mode does not disable the keyboard.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Keyboard And Mouse Stop Functioning With ODT Docs

Nov 3, 2010

Keyboard and sometimes mouse stops functioning whilst using oowriter - it only happens with writer. I lose control for up to 30 secs and then it comes back - but it keeps happening. This is on a 10.10 machine with standard install. I have changed keyboard from wireless to wired and back to wireless with new batteries. I have uninstalled Office, rebooted and re-installed but it is still happening on native odt docs. Is this a common recent issue?

Ubuntu :: Mouse And Keyboard Stop Working When X Server Starts?

Aug 28, 2009

I randomly started up my laptop one day and the mouse and keyboard stopped responding once GDM's login screen came up. Everything works fine from the console, but even if I run startx from the login shell the mouse and keyboard do not work, even though everything else in GNOME runs perfectly.

I am using an HP dv6426us laptop running Ubuntu 9.04 (i686 architecture with the 2.6.28-15-generic kernel). Below is a copy of my xorg.conf file, just in case there might be something wrong with that. I will try and put more information on, but seeing as I have to use a different computer to post this thread, copying over log files and stuff is difficult for the moment (though I am going to try and copy them over to a flash drive).

Code:

Identifier "Configured Monitor"

Ubuntu :: Commands - Sudo Kill -9 -1 - Screen Became Blank - Keyboard Not Responding

Jul 11, 2011

I am learning linux commands. I just wanted to see what happens when I type

Code:

The screen became blank. Keyboard was not responding. I couldn't do a proper shutdown. I switched off computer by pulling out the plug. When I restarted, I heard a series of beeps (approximately 10 beeps). Then I was dropped to the grub prompt. The problem now is I can not type anything into the grub prompt, because the character 'c' is continously printed across the screen like this:

Code:

I couldn't stop the character 'c' from printing (I tried pressing Esc, Ctrl+C)

The solution is easy. I can reinstall grub from a livecd. Or even reinstalling the entire operating system wouldn't take more than 30 minutes. But I want to know:

1) What exactly happened to grub? What stage does this error belong to (1, 1.5 or 2)? What is the error number?

2) How can running "sudo kill -9 -1" affect grub?

Software :: USB Keyboard And Mouse Randomly Stop Working In Fedora 12?

Jun 17, 2010

I'm running Fedora 12 on a Shuttle SN78SH7. Updates are all current from the Fedora repositories. I'm using the Nouveau driver for the Shuttle's on-board Nvidia graphics adapter. At random intervals (1 to 5 times per day), my USB keyboard and the buttons on my USB mouse stop working and the desktop freezes (i.e. GKrellm graphical data stops updating, partially painted windows don't complete). However, I can still move the mouse pointer around the desktop. This only seems to happen when I am actually using the computer from the console. It has never happened while the system was turned on, but not being used.

When the mouse and keyboard stop working, I can log in from another computer via ssh. Once the computer gets in this state, the only way to fix things is either to reboot remotely using ssh or to cycle power. I've run low level hardware diagnostics - everything checks out OK. This computer only has USB and firewire inputs. No PS2 jacks.

Ubuntu :: Keyboard And Mouse Will Not Work Once Get To The Login Screen

Jan 22, 2010

I have a Logitech Wave keyboard and mouse for my computer. I am not sure which version of Ubuntu I am running on but I think it is 6.10. When I boot up my computer I can go into the BIOS and earlier today it would even let me press escape to seee which operating systems I could boot. Now it no longer lets me see the operating system I have (which is why I cant say which version of Ubuntu I have). It takes me to the log in page and asks for the username and password but I cant type and I cant move the mouse. Earlier I could also use Alt+F1-F12, but this is no longer working either so it just sits at the login page and nothing works at all. The computer that is having this problem is very old it is a Proteva and when I opened up the actual computer the processor says:

At startup the computer says that the processor is a: AMD K-6

I know that the BIO's are to old for Ubuntu to run properly because at startup it also says that: "ACPI :
BIOS age (1998 ) fails cutoff (2000), acpi=force is required to enable ACPI" it also says that: "ACPI : unable to load the System Description Tables."

I have'nt used this computer for about a year or two, but the last time I used it it worked perfectly fine. I have been seeing questions on the forums similar to mine, but their problems are on other versions of Ubuntu and their mouse's are said to work fine. I cant try any of the solutions for the problems I have read about because I cant open the prompt that you get when you are at the log in screen and press F2. I have no idea what to do.

Debian :: No Keyboard And Mouse On Login Screen?

Jun 30, 2011

As the title says i have this error on both my main computer and my laptop. For my main computer see this post, that is when it happened. viewtopic.php?f=30&t=65743

I run the updates on my laptop a while ago and decided to restart it to check if everything went okay. It seems not.

The only way i can get on the desktop, is to choose the recovery mode, su to user and startx.

This is a common error during booting on both computers. Starting the hotplug events dispatcher: udevderror binding control socket, seems udevd is already running

It seems a little strange, same error on both computers.

Ubuntu Networking :: Mouse And Keyboard Working But Screen Does Not Refresh

Feb 14, 2010

First I tried VNC. Easy install through Ubuntu GUI, but I could only see a still picture of the Ubuntu-desktop that wouldn't update. I could see on the Ubuntu monitor that the cursor was moving and the keyboard did work, but on my Windows computer, the screen didn't refresh. Then I read a bit on the forums and people seemed content with nomachine NX or freenx. After a bit of hazzle I finally managed to get a connection between my Windows and Ubuntu-machine. But the same thing happened here. I get to see a still picture of the Ubuntu desktop, mouse and keyboard working, but the screen doesn't refresh..!
