Past couple of days Ive noticed both my mouse and keyboard not functioning properly. The mous suddenly started zooming instead of scrolling and the click doesnt always open links or emails. But the real problem is the keyboard which will not type a single letter and when I press any keys random things open up like search function windows & stuff or I just the ping noise.Its just useless to use.
I use separate wireless keyboard & mouse. Ive tried:
(1)Unplugging usb adaptors
(3)Using 2 different keyboards(one usb lead, one wireless)
(4)System restore always says failed to restore(tried 3 diff points)
(5)Scanned with Avast & Malwayrebites nothing found
Nothing works so Im completely stuck. Right now its randomly working again but I know it will stop again soon for long time. Theres clearly something very wrong and its not the devices as Ive tried others.
Any suggestions besides re-install which Im trying to avoid?
Tried many things including a re-install of windows which was traumatic. Then crushing when the problem persisted afterwards! Thought it must be hardware fault in PC so was ready to look for new one. Then I unplugged the tiny usb receiver for the keyboard and finally problem was solved! Because it was so tiny Id just left it in all the time even when trying other keyboards & mouses. But seems it was corrupting my usb devices. so problem solved. My problem now is buying a new keyboard....still cheaper than new PC.
