I am helping someone with an odd keyboard and mouse issue.
Her keyboard and mouse will both stop working at random times. There is no pattern to it, just completely random. I can connect to her machine remotely, move the mouse, open new programs, and type. However, she can do none of these things, but she is able to see what I am doing.
I have done the following:
- Checked for updates on the mouse and keyboard drivers.
- Ran malware scans.
- Restarted the machine.
- Disabled the USB sleep option.
- Switch USB ports on the machine
Still no luck!
The keyboard is wireless, but the mouse is not and they both stop working at the same time. The Operating System is Windows 7 Pro x64, and the computer is a Dell Optiplex 3010
