can you see any activity from your pc when the keyboard and mouse stop responding, is there a chance it has actually frozen? what type of mouse and keyboard are they i.e usb, ps2, at, serial?

Default the usb mouse works

i put a usb mouse in when the ps2 mouse got stuck, this worked.
does this mean that the problem is with the ps2 ports.then why does the ps2 mouse and keyboard continue working once i restart the machine?please tell me.

its an odd problem and the beep from the computer seems to suggest its a hardware problem rather than a software problem, perhaps a USB keyboard and mouse are your only solution
