- Keyboard only in my case; never the mouse. both PS2
- W2K Professional.
- it can happen when it's 52 degrees Farenheit in the room
- unplugging and replugging the keyboard always fixes it in my case.
- no firewall
Could be, or just the keyboard. I also think that a more modern BIOS might reset without plugging and unplugging.
I think you might be right.
In my experience, if you can't solve the driver problem by disabling and enabling a component or some such thing, you have to do so by rebooting. Unplugging and plugging my cable back in would not qualify.
That said, there is one thing that makes me think you are right - I think that when I plug back in, it may be a different driver. The repeat speed when holding down a key comes to crawl after replugging. To fix that I need to reboot.
