I have recently upgraded to windows 8. I was previously using a logitech mk320 mouse/keyboard and experiencing the same issues. So I purchased the new K330 setup that is windows 8 compatible, but again same issues. A little less frequently, but same issues.
Basically the keyboard will randomly have a 3 to 15 second delay when typing. To make it worse when it does finally pick up it leaves out letters making it very hard to type anything. Secondly the mouse will also randomly be very choppy. Not completely unresponsive, but skip over large sections of the screen. It's almost like the batteries are dying, but I have replace them 2 times now with fresh ones.
I just bought my new PC, and i got a problem with it: My Logitech K350 Wireless Keyboard randomly stops responding or sending keystrokes to the PC, its likes it lags or disconnects randomly, its very weird. I installed latest drivers, did plug in/out the receiver from different ports to others with no luck.
I've tried three mice, Logitech G400, Razer Deathadder 3.5 and a random Logitech wireless but the problem remains.
I haven't found any coincidents when i run a specific program or game. Sometimes it goes a day or two without incident and sometimes multiple times a day. I have run several Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Avast scans but they did not find anything.
I have also ran a "sfc /scannow" and the "DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth" to fix. I have tried the current drivers for every mouse, tried without drivers and tried to uninstall all drivers all let Windows install them itself.

After installing Windows 8 over Windows 7 on a Dell computer all worked well except for the Logitech wireless keyboard. When the shifted number keys were struck they printed an ASCII letter rather than their normal character. I substituted a USB keyboard with the same result. I have found no way to make the shifted number keys work correctly on this computer with Windows 8 installed. After restoring Windows 7, all worked correctly again. Am I alone with this problem? I would like to reinstall Windows 8.
Ok I finished up my PC Build i74930 K Asus Rampage IV Black Ed mobo 16Gb DDR 3 ram Samsung 840 EVO ssd 2 TB WD HDD
My mouse or Keyboard or both suddenly without warning will stop functioning. Sometimes one or the other sometimes both. I tried running a game for a small bench test and it dropped the mouse and keyboard so I had to use the reset button to get out.
On PC, has a problem with the PS2 keyboard and mouse staying on after the PC is turned off...the lights are still on.
The only thing different when I had it was the keyboard and muse and the OS....I use a logitech G510 and a Razer DeathAdder, both USB and the OS was 7 Ultimate 64 bit. My sons system is running 7 Pro 64 bit and using an old OEM HP keyboard/mouse.
Installed windows 8.1 preview last night and after installing i get stuck at the lock screen, cant click or punch keys to log in. Since the powers that be decided to change how you boot into safe mode is my only option to format?
I have a new Dell Inspiron 2350 windows 8.1 for the last week or so the usb wireless keyboard and mouse do not work when the system is booted or after coming out of deep sleep mode. I have to unplug the usb dongle and plug it in again for them to work.
I have already checked the powering saving settings for these devices, and it is disabled. There is no setting in the bios that I can see which would cause this. I have re-installed the drivers. I have tried different USB port. Dell have even replaced the keyboard and mouse and batteries, same problem.
Just updated from windows 7 to 8, on a Mac using bootcamp. Now my logitech wireless keyboard won't work - windows seems to recognize it but I can't type anything. My wireless mouse is being recognized and works fine. Can't find any updates or fixes on any site, including logitech.
I have a problem with keyboard and mouse. Every day when i playing some games my keyboard randomly stop working (backlight on keyboard still light but LED on num lock is off and buttons don't work) after few seconds my mouse also stop working. Plugin to another USB doesn't work. Only when i disconnect keyboard and connect mouse to other USB mouse work. After restarting system all works fine. Im sure keyboard and mouse is good (testing it on laptop when this happens and its work normal). I have updated drivers and BIOS.
PC spec.: Windows 8.1 AMD Phenom II x4 940 Gigabyte ga MA790x UD4P GTX 660 2xHDD+1SSD
No keyboard or mouse by attempting to add safe mode with networking. What is UEFI? Where do I find this USB viewable option as I am connected by USB?
I went to set up (F2 at boot) > and then searched around for anything that relates to USB and found that USB is enabled and on high speed. Hope that is not it and I am missing something, because I still have no mouse or keyboard.
Keyboard and mouse are the ones that came with the Dell XPS 7100 system. I'll try different USB ports and report back...didn't make a difference.
I've started getting the message Microsoft Mouse & Keyboard Center has Stopped Working (see error report below) when Windows 8 starts. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing the latest version of the Mouse & Keyboard Center but still have the same problem.

I've been constantly having problems with random freezes on Asus N76Vz notebook @ Windows 8.1 x 64 with latest updates. I don't remember updating any drivers or installing any software that could be capable of doing that, so it has begun out of sudden.
Freezes are actually pretty weird. It starts with a partial freeze, i.e. I can still switch between opened programs, I can still open new tabs in Chrome (it won't open any new sites though, just rotating circle icon), winamp will keep playing music etc., actually all programs will freeze only partially, nothing like I've ever seen before. But I can't close any currently opened programs or open new ones, including task manager. Explorer (+Classic shell) will freeze (become completely non-responding) as well, so sooner or later, I will have to force shutdown computer and turn it on again.
Where to look at because there's not a single minidump report. S.M.A.R.T status is telling me that SSD (with latest firmware) and HDD (0 bad sectors) are completely fine (checked with Hard Disk Sentinel). Computer is not infected nor have ever been (Comodo Internet Security for active protection, also scanned with malwarebytes, hitmanpro, TDSSkiller and adw cleaner). I have the latest BIOS and the latest drivers from official ASUS support website.
There are no other problems with Windows, except a lot of times I can't reboot Windows normally - it will stay at reboot screen forever. I've already tried turning off hybrid shutdown.
And another problem unrelated to Windows freezing mentioned above. Sometimes I can't close an application (Winamp and iTunes mostly) and killing in task manager from Processes tab also won't do anything. But if I try to kill it from Details tab, I get "The operation could not be completed. Access is denied." error. I've Googled about that one as well, most solutions were solved by unplugging USB devices, but I don't have any connected at all, so dead end here too. I've also tried with Unlocker and FileAssasin and they can't do anything as well in that case.
Since there are no minidumps, I've collected system, application and administrative events around occurrence of random crash. I'm also posting system summary and hardware report from AIDA64.
I am having a strange problem on Windows 8 as of late. Just in the middle of work the mouse pointer freezes in its tracks and there is nothing doing, but to restart. And then all goes on well as if nothing' happened. Today, I had the same problem, but this time the the mouse seems to revive after a minute so and after a while it again freezes up.
I looked it up in the Event Manager and find a constant error which seems to have been going on for sometime. The error is always Event ID: 16385
I wonder if the error has anything to do with the mouse freezing up the works or is it unrelated. The mouse battery is fully charged and the drivers are are the latest (according to Microsoft) and the manufacturer says this is only version, therefore neither of these can be the problem.
OS: Windows 8 Mouse and Keyboard Set: SilverCrest (wireless)
I installed Windows 8 standard package a few weeks ago on a AMD FX-8350/Asus MBO, 16 GB RAM, 128 GB SSD, 2x 1TB Seagate Barracuda configured as one 2 TB drive with Storage Spaces. It initially worked fine. Then when I installed a SSD optimization software from the SSD manufacturer, Samsung. I believe it was called Magician or something like that. It was a problem in that it slowed down my SSD, according to Samsung's own software, and it seemed to be the cause of keyboard freezing and/or major delay. I uninstalled it and the problem went away.
Now it has come back again. It seems to happen almost at random in any application. The mouse works fine, and never freezes, but the keyboard either has a large delay and the first character typed is lost, or it just does not respond at all. Closing the app, like IE10 and opening it again does not resolve it. Often the keyboard is still frozen.
I updated the graphics card driver to the latest from AMD. It is a Radeon HD7770. It seemed to work for a while, but it is back again. I can't think of any significant software I have installed, except perhaps the monitor calibrator, Spyder4Express. However all it should do is create a new monitor ICC profile.
The sad part is I had nearly this exact same problem with another computer years ago, and I cannot remember how I resolved it. I was using McAfee AV and ZoneAlarm, and I may have given both of them the boot. Currently all I am running is the default MS Defender AV. I've reset the Security in IE10 to default.
Can't think of more to do. I have Process Explorer and tried running it. I am not very familiar with this software, but from what I could see the processor is not loaded nor is any significant memory used when it the keyboard is locked. I can't seem to catch it doing anything bad. I checked the batteries on the keyboard as it is wireless and they are good. I have a faint recollection of having a wireless phone system that was conflicting, but since this new computer install I am using the same wireless router, same wireless phone system, and same wireless keyboard. It would seem unlikely out of the blue for them to start conflicting.
I'm running Windows 8.1, and never had problems with my wireless mouse ad keyboard. But my keyboard has a real problem, and I tried with a normal PS2 keyoard. But it wasn't recognized. I read, that when we use a USB mouse or keyboard, the PS2 is disabled. I tried the following:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHIE/CurrentControlSet/i8042prt and edited the value of "START" from 3 to 1.
But it didn't work. Is there another way to enable PS2 keyboards again?
I'm using a ASUS Notebook K53E Series laptop computer running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Service Pack 1... I'm using a HDMI to project onto a HD TV I have a USB keyboard and mouse hooked up, both Logitech... The problem I'm having is, both the mouse and keyboard keep disconnecting on me... The mouse will go first' I'll move it from one USB port to the other, and it will work, but then stop working again... The keyboard will just stop working, even if I move it I can't get it to reconnect... I have to shutdown my computer to get everything to start working again, but it will only last about a half hour before they stop working again after the reboot...
I've went into the device manager, under Universal Serial Bus controllers > Generic USB Hub > properties > Power Management, and unchecked "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power... This does not work... I then uninstalled it, and rebooted my computer, still doesn't work... I then tried to system restore, I couldn't because I had no restore points, I then look if there was any system updates, there was, but minor updates, I updated them anyways, still no go... I'm only having problems with the USB mouse and keyboard... My laptop touch pad and everything else works fine...
today I was makeing an essey in microsof office and suddenly my mouse and keyboard. stopped working, replugging the devices didn't worked (did it for 5 times ) , after this I tried to restart the pc I found out that rr button doesn't do anything , after I stopped the power going to pc and open power + pc they worked for only a few seconds and then stopped again . After a few force shutdown( by stopping the power) the pc closes itself after the windos 8 img dissapear . I have a desktop dual core 3.1, 4gb ram , mouse is usb and the keyboard is with Ps/2 .

I have an Acer Aspire M computer with a touch screen that runs Windows 8.1. I was having issues with the touch screen, so I went to download the drivers from the Acer website. However, when I restarted my computer to complete the installation, it wouldn't allow me to use either the mouse, touch screen, or keyboard.
Normally, after loading, a personalized picture will appear on the screen, displaying the time, connectibility, and strength of the network. The user is then supposed to swipe up, click on, or press space to move the picture, at which point the login screen appears. My computer loads normally when starting, but won't allow me to use the mouse, touch screen, or keyboard to move the picture out of the way, so I cannot access the login screen.
I have already contacted the Acer company support and attempted to use the battery reset pinhole, but to no avail. Is there anything I can do, besides a factory reset or using it as a cat bed?
I Defraged my comp to Optimize. After defrag, my mouse and keyboard no longer worked. I tried restarting, unpluging and switching to a wired mouse and keyboard. I can't get the comp to recognize them. I also switched between back and front ports.
I bought a Sony Vaio E-Series SVE17812BCXB running Windows 8. After the last major windows update that occurred in Feburary '13, the keyboard/mouse stop responding once the fully loaded splash screen is presented (With the time and date, ect).
I know the keyboard and mouse are fully functioning as I can use them when I access the boot menu before the OS is loaded. Also, only the keyboard 'functions' work when the OS is loaded, such as adjusting the brightness of the monitor (fn+F5) and such, but nothing else.
I try to do a system restore and it fails on all available restore points. I try to do a manual repair using a bootable USB drive, and it just loads windows like normal. I'm at a loss on how to get this fixed and as of right now, I purchased an $800 paper-weight.
I have a wireless keyboard and mouse (combo) plugged into my netbook (acer aspire one 522) and can't get the netbook to wake from sleep mode with either of them when the lid is closed (i always keep it closed other than this for this workaround).
I had set the power options to 'do nothing' when the lid is closed (only for when it's plugged in), and when i try to wake from sleep, the power and WLAN lights on the netbook flash whenever i move the mouse or press keys but nothing else. i have to open the lid, then press a key to wake from sleep, then i close the lid again. i checked Power Management settings for both keyboard and mouse and they both have the check box ticked for 'Allow this device to wake the computer'.
I use a Gateway NE56R49u Windows 8 laptop, which I sometimes use to connect to a Dell computer monitor via VGA and an external keyboard and mouse using USB. I want to be able to use the monitor with the ext. mouse and keyboard while the lid of the laptop is closed, however, everytime I close the lid the system goes to sleep and won't turn back on even if I move the mouse or press a key on the keyboard. I've tried going to Device Manager and enabling the mouse and keyboard to wake my Windows 8 laptop but that seems to have no effect on what happens when I try to wake my laptop when the lid is closed. I am able to do this on a Windows 7 laptop (HP Pavilion g6), but how can I configure my windows 8 laptop so I can do the same on my Windows 8 laptop?
I updated win8 pro for synaptic, windows instruct me remove previous driver to install the updated driver, after so and after restart I could not use now my KB and pointing device, I can't login to win to reinstall drivers...
I uninstalled Intel Smart Connect Technology after experiencing a BSOD that seemed to be caused by a related driver. When the uninstallation tool asked if I wanted to restart now/later, I chose to restart now, which was followed by another BSOD.
Now I can boot into Windows just fine but neither my mouse or my keyboard are working. They work in the BIOS but as soon as Windows is loaded, they stop functioning. I've tried resetting my CMOS but this did not solve the problem. I've also checked that they are enabled in the BIOS.
I would try a system restore but Windows 8 doesn't seem to allow me to boot into repair mode without actually going into Windows first, but I can't do it from Windows because of my malfunctioning peripherals.
I can't use the Windows 8 installation disc to repair because as soon as the message that says "Press any key to continue" comes up, my keyboard stops working. However, it seems I can force the PC to boot from the CD which after a bit of a wait gets me to the Windows installation screen, with my only option being to completely reinstall Windows.
I am able to enter Windows Repair Mode with the Installation disc, but there is no option for Safe Mode and when I attempt to System Restore, I get this error message: "To use System Restore, you must specify which Windows installation to restore. Restart this computer, select an operating system, and then select System Restore."
Laptop Keyboard and Mouse is not working properly now. Last time this occurred which was about 3 months ago, I reset-ed Windows 8 and it was all working again. When this occurs, in both incidents, I can't go to bios, can't enter password to login, can't open on-screen keyboard(except sometimes), and even if I get open, using it is same as using the keyboard.
Mouse errors: LMB changes to Select all thing so I can't click anything. This issue is same at least most of the time.
Keyboard errors: This varies a lot from time to time.
I reset-ed OS this time too and the problem still exists unlike before.
Ex: I'm not sure this key is this or not, but it was I think Z is ctrl, x is alt, a don't work, ctrl, alt, shift don't work. Then, keyboard itself keep on pressing space or opening windows support.
And then I updated my BIOS and now the problem was a little bit solved or I think it would be best to say the problem changed bit.
Now z,x,a, spacebar, ctrl, alt, shift, everything working,except ! and maybe a few other keys, but now It keeps pressing caps lock, shift and opening up windows support.
Then I restarted, and now I pressed F2(BIOS) and it let me in. I tried changing the boot priorty order but those keys F5/F6 aren't working, so I restarted, now again I can't press F2.
And sometimes laptop beeps for some reason on booting up.
There are no keyboard drivers except the default one and sticky and filter are all off.
The task manager was showing processing was a little high so I ended tasks I thought shouldn't be running like the store and then I ended what i thought was internet explorer, but it was windows explorer and it black screened and when I restarted it the mouse stopped working and I kept trying to do stuff i thought would work and restarting and then the keyboard also stopped working.
