  1. Hi all!
    Since couple days ago I have noted a problem on my system boot up.
    Well, when I start the pc everything is fine. So when I restart the pc the keyboard and mouse just stop responding! Then I need to reset the pc to the periphericals back to normal.
    I already did clear cmos and re-configurated the bios but nothing changed.

    mobo: fastfame 3ief
    cpu: p3 1000@1140
    256 ram
    chipset i815

    thanks in advance for any help! :grinthumb

    are your keyboard and mouse USB or PS/2?

    If your keyboard and mouse are both USB, or even if just one is, make sure your BIOS is set to enable legacy USB devices, and to enable USB keyboard.

    I remember that was a time when i faced a rather similiar problem like yours. I changed my p/s2 mouse an everything is ok now. Perhaps your mouse might be faulty. Try to swap mice and keyboards(workable ones) from other pc and test it on your pc.

    Have you changed the PS/2 report rate by any chance?

    Its a Logitech optical mouse. A couple days ago I opened and cleaned it. I'll right now make the tests without the mouse then I'll be back here to post the results....

    Bingo!!! :grinthumb
    the problem is the mouse!
    It works fine in windows/linux but is just bugging at rebooting time :(
    May I buy another mouse? ( :( here in brazil I'll pay a lot for it)
    I shouldn't opened it.

    "Periphericals"should be a word in my opinion, but it is not. I think you mean "peripherals". ;) Being that you are probably Brazillian, you type English very well so I'm not picking on you - Just thought I should let you know.

    Glad you found the source of your problem. :)

    You guys won't believe: I switched the plugs LOL
    I put the keyboard plug in mouse spot and vice-versa LOL
    But how did it worked? :D
