    Optical HP mouse and Microsoft keyboard work fine reading a page. Newspapers on line or PDF document off line until I stop using the mouse or keyboard keys to scroll while reading.
    I load a full screen document then start to read.By the time I have read about half the page both Mouse and keyboard stop responding until I hit a mouse button.
    None of the navigation keys work till mouse button pressed. Scroll wheel does not work till mouse button pressed.
    Problem has only been with me for a couple of weeks. No changes have been made and in fact i just did a Recovery in hopes that would solve the problem.
    Problem is a pain but beyond that everything else seems alright.
