Hello everyone.

I have a problem. My mouse and keyboard keeps freezing randomly and the only way to 'fix' this issue is to hard restart my PC, so obviously I want to fix it. My specs are:

Processor: Intel Core i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz, 3401 Mhz, 4 cores, 8 Logical Processors.

Graphics card - AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series

Driver - AMD Catalyst driver (14.12 AMD Catalyst Omega Software)

Wired or wireless?

Are you sure its the keyboard & mouse and not the PC thats freezing?

If the PC is freezing there will be no disk activity light and the clock on the taskbar will stop.

If the PC is OK then plugging in a flash drive should cause some response.

FReeezing PC

  1. Overheat due to faulty / blocked fans

  2. PSU voltages

  3. Household power surges fridge etc switching on/off

It's completely random when it does freeze. It's not my PC freezing itself, considering if I have music playing or watching a video, they continue to play just fine.

However, I did update my driver to the recommended AMD Catalyst Driver 14.12 AMD Catalyst Omega in early/mid December, around the same time I started experiencing these issues. Maybe that's what's causing these issues?

try rolling back the driver.
