Ok my problem is that when i try to install ubuntu or even 'Try' Ubuntu on my computer the mouse will turn on for about 2-3 Seconds then turn off. The keyboard is wireless and doesn't work either. I am using an old logitec keyboard for now that works its using the purple plug (Don't know name) and it works but i can not finish the install because i need to mouse to do something. I have tried multiple mice and keyboards only the keyboard with the purple plug (Don't Remember name) works. None of my mice work i have Razor Tapian and these El-Cheapo mouses none of which work.

Purple plug is circle and has holes in it. I found out it was called ps/2 port.

Thanks for the help.

First install the drivers:

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-all

If it already installed, reinstall it.

sudo apt-get --purge autoremove xserver-xorg-input-all && sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-all

(ALL OFF MY MEMORY) I tried the first one and it said it worked but 0 things were changed/instilled and the second one said cannon't connect to archives.ubuntu.com or something. Thanks for your help but the internet isn't working. My internet is not working it says disconnected, it retry's and disconnects again (Im using ethernet cable) i can ping locally and it works but nothing outside of my house. –  Mooocowgaming Jul 8 at 6:52
