When playing a game in Windows 98 (Half-Life), my mouse and keyboard locks up. The game continues running normally but i can't move, type or exit. I have to turn off my PC.

I have tried unplugging and replugging mouse and keyboard, which did not work.

Any ideas? Can i fix it?

Plugging in a PS/2 mouse while power is on can damage your controller chip. So, don't do that again


Does this happen with any other software? What video card is it?

No it only seems to happen with this particular game, and it has happened without a 3d card, and with 2 different 3d cards. I have looked into the game as the problem but there seems to be no one else with this problem.
The video card is a Diamond Monster 3D II 12meg.

I know half life has a lot of updates, and is very picky about video drivers and sound drivers... Maybe mouse drivers too.

Are you using a non-standard mouse driver?
