Hardware - Microsoft Windows 95/98/Me


Removing the mouse and keyboard drivers in Windows 95/98/Me:

Occasionally someone will call in and say when they connect to the Internet their mouse or keyboard stops working.  A possible cause for this is that the modem is sharing the same IRQ as the mouse or keyboard.  The simple fix is to remove the drivers for the mouse OR keyboard and reboot.  The following screenshots explain one way of doing this:

On your Desktop, right click on My Computer and select Properties from the menu.


The System Properties window appears.

Select the Device Manager tab.

Expand the Keyboard OR Mouse menu and highlight the driver.

Towards the bottom, click the Remove button.

Yes, you're sure you want to remove the drivers.


Windows should reinstall the drivers and assign the hardware to a different IRQ.
