The keyboard is a device, which uses an arrangement of buttons or keys, to act as electronic switches.
A keyboard typically has characters engraved or printed on the keys and each press of a key typically corresponds to a single written symbol. However, to produce some symbols requires pressing and holding several keys simultaneously or in sequence. While most keyboard keys produce letters, numbers or signs (characters), other keys or simultaneous key presses can produce actions or execute computer commands.
The mouse is a pointing device that functions by detecting two-dimensional motion relative to its supporting surface. Physically, a mouse consists of an object held under one of the user's hands, with one or more buttons.
The mouse sometimes features other elements, such as "wheels", which allow the user to perform various system-dependent operations, or extra buttons or features that can add more control or dimensional input. The mouse's motion typically translates into the motion of a pointer on a display, which allows for fine control of a graphical user interface.
Common Microsoft Drivers Problems
Common Causes of Failure...
- The driver is out-of-date
- The driver is missing or corrupt

- The device is damaged
Hopefully, your device is not damaged and all that needs to be done is to simply uninstall and remove all components of the old driver and replace it with a newer or working driver. This process, while not too terribly difficult, can be tedious and time consuming (especially if you have more than one device that is out-of-date).
If you’re going to manually find the drivers for your specific system, be sure to take the proper steps to identify the correct hardware on your Windows PC.
