View Full Version : [ubuntu] Keyboard and mouse problems in ubuntu 9.04

July 30th, 2009, 08:00 PM

I installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my acer 5500 laptop last week. I am now facing a problem with keyboard and mouse randomly. Please help!

Problem 1
Keyboard stops responding at random times

While I am typing, keyboard suddenly stops responding.
Since I can do anything further with the keyboard at that point, the only way I can get the keyboard to respond again is to suspend and restart.

While typing this text, I had to suspend twice to finish.

Problem 2
A key I pressed suddenly starts repeating at random times. When this happens, none of the keys work. So the only way to come out is to suspend and relogin.

Problem 3
I copy some text and paste it to any application. The copied text start repeating. Keyboard stops responding.

Are these problems known? Is there a solution I can apply? My laptop had become almost unusable. Please can someone let me know if there is a solution?
