Motherboard problem

By sirhc316 ·
I have a Gigabyte P4 Titan Series motherboard that is working perfectly ok(the pc boots up normal and everything) except for the fact that the mouse and keyboard are not responding.I tried different keyboards and mice and still nothing. And strangely enough there are no error messages.Does anyone know what to do with it?

The BIOS default should be stop on all POST errors which would include no keyboard present.If by chance this board supports USB keyboard, which some do, you might want to run out and get a PS/2 to USB adapter and try that.

If you bought this new, check Gigabytes web site for their FAQ on these boards.

All else fails, send it in to them under a RMA.

You didn't say what kind of mouse and keyboard? Wired? Wireless? P/S2? USB? Have to have more info.

Look in Both the M'Board Manual and BIOS to see if the PS2 Ports are disabled. With Gigabyte M'Boards there is generally a jumper near the back of the board that can be removed to disable the PS2 ports and you can also do this in BIOS by telling the unit that you are using USB input devices.

Flash the BIOS to the latest version available and then reset the BIOS after clearing it as per the instructions from Gigabyte. All you should need do is to set the date & time and then leave everything else alone if that doesn't cure the problem and the M'Board is under 3 years old RMA it to the vendor from whom you bought it as it is faulty.

It could be hardware or software. If the hard disk is fine; and it boots to DOS; try running this command:

fdisk /mbr

Be gentle with fdisk though. :) With the wrong parameters you could erase the hard drive.

Please ignore this answer. I was (obviously I hope) answering the wrong question.

Ran into something like this, mouse went south (forever I think). Used keyboard (old style - before mouse) until I replaced it with a USB mouse. Not an answer you wanted to hear, but tried the USB styles ? I received no errors thus the mouse output appeared to be fine, for testing, but it did not work !

BTW - Mouse works perfectly on a Win 98 box !
