Windows 7: Weird problem with mouse and keyboard

Weird problem with mouse and keyboard

Hey guys. I'm having a problem with my mouse and keyboard in windows 7. I've been running W7 for nearly a month now without ever experiencing this problem. Just recently during a 4-5 hour long gaming session my game closed down without an error message and suddenly everything went haywire. My keyboard acted incredibly strange and so did my mouse. An example would be that all my numeric keys turned into their shift+number counterparts and my caps locks was off when the led glowed green. When I tried to start a program using the left-mouse click it highlighted several programs and upon double-clicking instead of running I recieved the properties of the program instead.

So far in attempt to fix this I've tried the following:
  • Twinkering with the keyboard and mouse settings
  • Twinkering with accessibility options
  • Uninstalling and installing the default ps/2 and mouse drivers
With no success Does anybody know what could be wrong or how I could solve this?

Thanks beforehand.

Have you tested a different keyboard and or mouse?
make sure they are plugged into the correct plug.
unplug the keyboard, move outside, gently tap on one corner,
how much crud falls out...
1. it simply might need cleaned.
Blow and see if any lint appears, (see #1).
check for frays.. the cable might be going bad.

This could be a heat-related problem. A lot of games run the system pretty hard. If this is the case, you may have a motherboard problem.

Thought so too, but the inside of my case was actually either cooler or equally cool to the outside temp. After leaving it off for 1-2hours or so the problem seemed to solve itself though o_o" I still find this incredibly weird considering I've never experienced problems like this from overheating and especially not when my hardware doesn't even feel remotely warm.

@the other guy, I tried that :s

Problem solved anyways.
