For some reason, my personal desktop is creating problems.That is, when I turn it on, it works fine but after sometime it does not take any input from the mouse and keyboard. Sometimes it works  and sometimes it does not.  Can anyone tell me what I should do with this??

Hi Quazi,

If the computer cannot get input from the keyboard or the mouse, you can just unplug and plug them again, though sometimes you may be forced to restart the computer (in the case where it has completely frozen, in that you cannot even use the keyboard).

If the problem persists, then the contacts of the mouse and  keyboard may be worn out.  This is if you have been using them for long. Or the system could just be freezing due to running many processes, which is not an unusual thing.  Therefore you might consider going to the task manager and clearing some processes that you do not think are necessary for now.

Hope this helps.

Your computer could be (and in most likely) having an overheating problem. When the processor overheats, the system freezes and cannot accept inputs from the keyboard and/or mouse. You need to do a few check ups to identify the real cause of the unresponsive behavior in your computer.

The first would be to open the casing of your pc and feel the temperatures on the processor by use of hands. If you find that the processor is extremely hot, there lies the problem. You will then either need to replace the processor fan or clean it off any dust and also check that it works (rotates) fine. Clean all other openings and the entire interior of your pc to make sure that all is well and there’s plenty of room for free flow of air.

The next thing to make sure that is fine is your hard drive. Connect it to a working pc and perform a surface scan using the check disk utility. Regards.
