Keyboard or mouse problems

Use this information to diagnose and resolve keyboard and mouse issues.

To check for keyboard or mouse problems, complete the following steps until the problem is solved:
  1. Make sure that:
    • Both the blade server and the monitor are turned on.
    • The keyboard/video/mouse select button LED on the front of the blade server is lit, indicating that the blade server is connected to the shared keyboard and mouse.
    • The keyboard or mouse cable is securely connected to the active BladeCenter management module.
    • The keyboard or mouse works with another blade server.
  2. Check for correct management-module operation (see the documentation for your BladeCenter unit).
    Note: Some BladeCenter unit types have several management-module components that might have to be tested or replaced (see the Installation Guide for your management module for more information).
  3. Replace the keyboard or mouse.
  4. Replace the management module (see the documentation for your BladeCenter unit).

If these steps do not solve the problem, it is likely a problem with the blade server. See Keyboard or mouse problems.
