Keyboard and onboard-mouse problem

Postby constantine768 on Wed Nov 28, 2007 8:58 am

Hi all,
I have got problems with keyboard/onboard mouse.
When I start Mint, the keyboard does not respond.(till the boot sequence and GRUB, it is working, at MINT LOGIN screen, it does not work)
The external ps2 mouse works fine but onboard mouse does not work.So I have to always work with external mouse.

Keyboard problem is too specific and funny.
If I have put my vista in hibernate mode and then log to Mint, keyboard does NOT work.
So I go back restart Vistaa and then come back.
Keyboard works fine(funny:)).

Please help me...

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Which laptop do you have?
I don't trust hibernate and suspend - but they are useful for laptops - and my knowledge of Vista is zero.
But I think the keyboard problem is not unexpected.

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Sorry for being late.
But linux mint on my lappy is now just not ready to recognise the mouse as well as the keyboard.
I cant do a single task in mint.

I tried all different patterns
I thought earlier that if windows is in hibernate then it is not letting other OS to use.
But then i am starting linux fresh with no other OS on hibernate or anything
Still no use
No keyboard all the time

Hi

Have you tried going into Bios and "Disable USB Keyboard", if it is there, and also "Disable USB legacy devices"

Also disconnect any USB devices you are not using at boot.
