  • USB mouse and keyboard stop working after I have install Windows Update KB2913431

    After installation automatic Windows Update KB2913431 (Win 7 Enterprise), the computer seems to work very well, but my mouse and keyboard stop working.  The option of automatic repair after that start with F8 does not work.  He said that the error is "unspecified".

    The fool is that it has created a constellation of intermittent problems when I try other options to get these devices to function after the update.  The questions I will of unpowered USB ports, grateful Windows and install the drivers for USB devices, but then do not recognize their (and are not), random BSOD, restore points invalid system, random boot failure, which causes discs to randomly stop working properly, closed randomly , à... I think you get the idea.

    I think it must be a driver problem.  I passed through the Device Manager and uninstall all hidden devices.  I have updated the drivers for everything that has an update available.  I tried to disable all, but Microsoft services at startup and in the list of "services".  I've always been unsuccessful; However, when I can get it to successfully restore to a point before the update (none of the automatic restore points work correctly) it seems ok.  It will sometimes seem to work after I applied the update, but then go haywire shortly after.  I am convinced that it is not a hardware problem, given that the prior update restores (when they actually cross without failure) work very well.

    I went through countless articles in the knowledge base and tried all the suggestions I've seen, other than registry cleaners because I had a bad experience with this earlier.  I tried so many things that I lost count and the memory of some of them.

    I reached point is never install the update (an option that I prefer not to use) or creating a clean Windows install on another drive (an option that I prefer not to use, but I'm a little more friendly to).  I already started to back up files to prepare a clean install, but I reach out one last time before I pull the trigger.

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions you have!

    Original title: code 10


    Read this link which has also a few solutions:

    Description of errors related to the 10 Code that generates the Device Manager in Windows on computers


    Step 1: Please do all the same underneath if you did some before as is often total
    a process that solves the problem.

    Try this - Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click on the device - driver tab.
    Click on update drivers (this will probably do nothing) - RIGHT click ON the drive - uninstall.
    RESTART this will refresh the default driver stack. Even if the reader does not appear to continue

    Then, work your way through these - don't forget the drive might be bad, could be a coward
    cable or slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

    Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then make sure that the cables in both

    Some DVD players do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the manufacturer of system and
    manufacturer of device to see if there is a firmware or drivers for your drive if necessary.


    Step 2: You have disc problems as the CD/DVD is actually 4 discs in 1 case (CD & DVD
    Burn and CD and DVD read). So it is not unusual for 1 or 2 operational so that other parts
    do it right.

  • Satellite Pro A210 - keyboard and touchpad stop working after hibernation

    I installed Windows 7 (32 bit) on my Satellite Pro A210 and have a similar problem. When it starts OK but after hibernation the keyboard and touchpad stop working after 3 minutes. The only way to fix it is a re-boot of the force.

    Anyone have any ideas?


    You have installed all the drivers for your laptop? I mean especially the chipset driver.
    Check this box!

    If you have yellow exclamation points in Device Manager, you must install all the missing drivers.

    Last but not least don't forget to install all Windows 7 updates available that you can get thorugh Windows Update.

    Sorry, but that's all I can say at the moment

  • WiFi connected but browsers and mail stop working

    Here's the situation:

    iMac, 4 years, OS X 10.7.5

    WiFi connected but, browsers and mail stop working sometimes recently.

    Checked the wifi & browser settings.

    Do not remember something like what happens when connected online cat5.

    Curious to know what is happening.

    Say local store card is perhaps go wrong.

    The machine is only 8 ' of router.

    Another pc on the network does not appear to be a problem.

    Any help appreciated.

    You can remove them later if you want using the [---] button.

    If this does not work, it could mean that your router is having problems.  Most routers act as the local DNS server, make a cache and especially fair bet as a DNS server provided a front for the access provider.  If the router begins to act, it can often be cleared by power cycling the router.

    And once again, if you provide your own DNS server works, then it could be DNS servers of the ISP, but less likely that they would be getting a lot of complaints from their customers (assuming that customers thought it was DNS servers).

  • HP ENVY Phoenix 810: Tiles and charms stop working

    Tiles and charms stop working. When the tiles stops working (by clicking tile on causes Office Office window to scroll) and I could still access the charm of the research, I ran sfc/scannow as administrator. He showed a couple of corrupt files, he couldn't fix, but on reboot, the tiles and the charms worked again. Have experienced this on four times at this point.

    Seems to have started with the last Windows 8.1 update and is somehow related to the engine OneDrive of synchronization.  I hadn't used onedrive; started using it, and this mess. I disabled all settings onedrive pc and laptop and stopped using it. However, the message "Synchronization engine OneDrive" appears for no apparent reason, and then the tiles and charms stop working.  If I have Outlook and Foxfire open apps, they still work, and their open windows always appear in the toolbar at the bottom. All other app shortcut links that have normally pinned it disappear.

    When I try to shut down the PC, if I can do this via the charm of power, I get a message that it cannot be closed because the "Portrait Display Inc. app prevents close.» There is no such program indicated in the list of installed programs in Control Panel. I understand computer Googling there somehow integrated in the HP PC.

    It is a HP Envy Phoenix 810, with a monitor (not touch) HP, both purchased December 2013. 8.1 Windows running automatic updates; using McAffee All - Access AV, up-to-date. Standard desktop applications. No software of Dingo.

    I see that many other people have had this problem, used the approach of the sfc/scannow, with little lasting effect.

    Plnjmw, welcome to the forum.

    If you have configured the Windows system restore, I suggest go back to a restore point before you started having the problem.  This will tell you if the update is the problem.

  • Weather gadget and currecny stopped working - failed to connect


    I just noticed that my weather gadget and currency has stopped working today.  The only change on my computer was the Assistant to upgrade Windows 8 I used to download the new Windows 8.  I have not installed, just burn the ISO.  I tried to restore my computer to a previous point before that, but it still does not work.  All gadgets except for gadgets weather and currency.

    Is there a setting that has been changed?  I tried turing off LAN and on, tried to turn off the function gadget and on again and nothing helped.  IE is set to work online also.  So, I don't know what happened.

    Help, please!

    Thank you!

    Microsoft has DISABLED the weather gadgets and currency via a recent update of security, because of worries about the vulnerability associated with these gadgets running on your computer. You can read more here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2719662 . Adjust the settings of your computer and all these other 'suggestions' people are, will NOT work. The function has been REMOVED from the operating system. It has also been removed from Windows 8 operating system. There are "theorists" who agrees that there is a security problem in the gadgets or Microsoft just doesn't support gadgets (usually from third party software) and has therefore disabled them in Windows 7 and eliminated in Windows 8.
    Thanks to DaveNYC for the Info. Pass the word, because a lot of people is facing this problem just like you.

  • Mouse and keyboard stop working

    I have windows 7 64 bit edition Home premium.  Intel I5 6 GB of Ram chip. Had this system for 3 years and no problem.  Today, when I myself post on someones facebook page all of a sudden my keyboard stopped entered the words I typed. did not work.   The mouse was working. I rebooted and it worked for a few minutes.  Then he stopped again.  I plugged in the keyboard to a different usb port and it started working, but then the mouse has frozen completely.  I put the mouse on a USB of Hung and it works for now.   My anti virus is so far - I even ran the Norton Patrick gum aggressively looking for problems and he came back with no risk not found.   Is there any type of virus which would attack the keyboard and mouse?  Did someone had experience with in the past?  I have not downloaded new software in a year so nothing new has been added unless there is an automatic update of windows.  Just checked and the last updated 2/15, a few weeks ago and today is the first time with the problem.

    Hi Carl,

    1. What is the brand and model of the mouse/keyboard/computer?

    2. do you get an error related to the question message/code?

    This problem might be caused by the virus, but this usually occurs due to drivers of bad/corrupt keyboard/mouse/USB host controller.

    I suggest you follow the troubleshooting steps for the mouse and keyboard from the Microsoft KB article and check if it solves the problem.
