Generic Usb Mouse Driver Windows Xp ##TOP##
I talked to Logitech tech support today, but that didn't go anywhere. We determined that Windows is finding the devices and installing the drivers appropriately, because they show up in the Device Manager. My PS/2 Keyboard works fine, along with another USB mouse that I am using in the meantime, so she really had no idea where to direct me.
Generic Usb Mouse Driver Windows Xp
Well, solved it myself. The problem had nothing to do in the end with the fact I am on an ASUS motherboard, it stemmed from the fact that I had MotionJoy drivers installed for using a Playstation 3 controller over USB. That works fine, however, the MotionJoy driver package also contains drivers for internal and USB bluetooth dongles, and Windows randomly decided to use the MotionJoy drivers for my mouse and keyboards USB receiver.
Let me restate, this is only applicable if your USB mouse or keyboard is not working, and you have the MotionJoy drivers installed on your system. I didn't look for a workaround, because I do not use my PS3 controller on the computer anymore.
Just thought I would pass this on, especially since I think this is an issue that is really not necessarily dependent on the hardware type, and/or the the HID drivers. It is just a guess but I am thinking that it may be a combination of anti-virus/malware software people run that is possibly corrupting the drivers and or services for HID touchpads and or HID mouse.
It can be especially useful for cases where:you want to access a device using a libusb-based application
you want to upgrade a generic USB driver
you want to access a device using WinUSB
I recently bought a Lenovo USB keyboard and would like to use the native keyboard driver in my (virtual) Win7 x64. My understanding is that the Host OS "grabs" mouse and keyboard and VMWare Fusion provides a generic mouse and keyboard to the virtual guest with vmware tools providing the appropriate drivers for it.
The Host OS doesn't 'grab' the mouse and keyboard, they're just controlled and installed by the Host OS and as far as the Guest OS it supplies its own keyboard and mouse drivers without VMware Tools installed although using Windows XP as an example the keyboard drivers, i8042prt.sys and kbdclass.sys are provided by the Guest OS not VMware Tools nor does installing VMware Tools change the keyboard drivers used by the Windows XP Guest and the mouse drivers mousclass.sys and mouhid.sys are provided by Windows XP not VMware Tools and if VMware Tools are installed it adds the VMware Pointing Device using the vmmouse.sys driver however installing VMware Tools is not required to have a working keyboard and mouse in the Guest OS.
Are there any USB or driver programmers here that can help create a simple Intel USB 3.0 xHCI driver for XP? Looking for some basic functionality first to detect and connect a USB keyboard and a USB mouse. Intel was lazy and didn't bother making one so looking for some brilliant minds out there to help accomplish this so XP can remain functional many years to come.
Are they making a pure Windows XP 32 bit compatible driver? Newer motherboards only use xHCI starting with Skylake. I would need Windows XP xHCI driver for testing and modifying myself to work on as many systems as possible. I didn't see any downloadable links to any USB drivers. Can you link? I don't need full mass storage device detection functionality since that would take a lot more code most like to build. Just basic USB keyboard and USB mouse input support for now is good enough.
I don't know who Alex Ionescu is but if he's coming out with a generical USB 3.0/3.1 driver for Intel xHCI controllers that's a huge step in the right direction. But one step at a time. Even limited USB mouse and USB keyboard functionality would be fine right now instead of a full USB driver stack.
If he's truly your mentor and you "physically" know him unless you don't and just call him your "mentor" as Yoda would be the mentor of Star Wars fans, however if perhaps you physically know him then you can urge him to work on having a limited xHCI XP driver that can at least activate the USB mouse and USB keyboard and possibly other game controllers. The idea is to able to slipstream this xHCI driver with XP SP3 installation. And get an idea of how long this might take. After your initial message and time that has elapsed it seems unlikely to happen any time soon so again lifting hopes and then smashing them.
Another type of KVM switch uses emulation technology. This prevents the OS from having to re-enumerate your devices every time you switch ports, but what it does is it feeds generic keyboard/mouse info to the computers at all times. That means the OS doesn't know exactly what your devices are, it just considers them to be generic devices. Special functions, like volume controls, etc.. may not work. Sometimes this may work fine for your needs, and it's fast and reliable.
The other type uses Dynamic Device Mapping, or some similar technology. This one maps your specific keyboard and mouse to each connected system. This is kind of the best of both worlds, because the computers see your keyboard and mouse for exactly what they are - it doesn't use a generic profile. The computers think your devices are always connected too, so there's no re-enumeration / re-detection, every time you switch ports. Connectpro has the kvm switches with dynamic device mapping - and that should provide the stability needed, since your computer wouldn't have to re-detect those devices every time you switched ports.
I was experiencing the exact same issues and found this post in my search for an answer. After making the recommended adjustment to Power Management the device was still not working. I was hoping to avoid a reboot so on a whim I simply unplugged my mouse ( I have a mouse and keyboard plugged into my KVM - one identical to the picture above) and plugged it into a different input (USB Console) port. The computer immediately began a search for the driver for the mouse, installed what it needed and it worked fine. I then switched the KVM to the other computer. That computer executed the same search and it worked again as well. This is added simply as a suggestion for avoiding reboot after the power adjustment change. We shall see said the blind man to the deaf dog.
I had the same problem, at first I thought it might have been the cable. Today I thought to give it another try. One on Linux Mint and the other on my Win XP workstation (Yes, I'm old school like that). It started searching and installing the drivers (which I had to click to continue as you already know. Oh, BTW, I had my default PS2 mouse installed for the installing). After the 3rd or 4th driver both my keyboard and mouse worked. BUT it had more drivers to install. So I continued. After everything was installed, my mouse worked, but not my keyboard. I plugged the cable USB into another port for a fresh start on driver installation and continued installing until both the keyboard and mouse worked and cancelled the rest. Can all this then be driver and type related as @Spncr592 pointed out for us?
I was having an issue with KVM switches not finding the keyboard and mouse when then went to login after restarting the computers. We had to unhook the cables to the switches and then when we hooked them back, windows 7 would find the keyboard and mouse and then they were good to login. This was a big problem. It was happening on the Lenovo M73 computers that they were just upgraded to. This fixed the login issue and I believe it will fix the issue of them switching from the PCI compliant machine back to the windows 7 machine not recognizing the mouse and them not being able to finish the information they had on the screen.
tl;dr it was a driver issue for me. Plug a second mouse directly into the computer and reboot to see if that gives it the kick it needs to reinstall the driver. Or try to find the appropriate driver from the KVM manufacturer.
The last thing I tried which finally seemed to do the trick was plugging another USB mouse directly into the computer (while the KVM was still attached) and restarting. When I logged back in, Windows gave me a Driver Software Installation window and said it was installing the driver for a USB 2.0 Hub. After it installed this two more devices suddenly popped into the window to get their drivers installed -- one for the mouse and one for the keyboard.
