Oh look technology failures for Granyaski again....

There was a powercut earlier, just one of those spli second ones. So I turned on my pc again but this time neither the mouse or keyboard will work, they do not light up or anything no matter what usb port I put them in or fiddle them around. I have tired them both on my sisters laptop (which I'm using now). The problem is the screen will not turn on unless the mouse is moved and just stays in standbye so I can't see anything.

WTF do I do?

Are they working on your sister's laptop or not? [QUOTE=Granyaski;5524323]The problem is the screen will not turn on unless the mouse is moved and just stays in standbye so I can't see anything.

The screen of your computer or the screen of your sister's computer? Details, please.

Do you have the legacy PS/2 connectors for mouse and keyboard on the motherboard?

I am afraid I have no idea what you just said.

Ports themselves are useless without the PS/2 adapters for USB hardware, though.

If you have those adapters, you can try connecting your keyboard and mouse to PS/2 ports to see if they'll work there, if your motherboard even has PS/2 ports, of course.

Are you sure it's the keyboard and not the monitor? That's an extremely strange configuration that puts the computer in standby after booting until you move the mouse. Did you try the touchpad? (I'm assuming a laptop has a touchpad...)

Try a different mouse/keyboard in your computer.

D3matt;5524337Are you sure it's the keyboard and not the monitor?[/QUOTE] This part of his post suggests it's the keyboard and mouse:
Granyaski;5524323So I turned on my pc again but this time neither the mouse or keyboard will work, they do not light up or anything...[/QUOTE] Computer checks keyboard and mouse during the boot up sequence, causing their lights to turn on and off. Since they apparently fail to light up, it's unlikely the monitor is the problem.
D3matt;5524337That's an extremely strange configuration that puts the computer in standby after booting until you move the mouse.
:agreed I was thinking the same thing. Could it be that Windows don't even load due to lack of keyboard and mouse and the computer gets stuck at the black screen, making it seem like it's in the standby mode? [QUOTE=D3matt;5524337]Did you try the touchpad? (I'm assuming a laptop has a touchpad...)
He didn't specify whether his computer is a desktop or a laptop. I assume it's desktop, though. [QUOTE=Mr. Pedantic;5524407]Try a different mouse/keyboard in your computer.

:agreed If you can get your hands on another set, of course.
