Mouse Input Not Responding
So, I've played Skyrim perfectly fine for quite some time with and without mods installed. Recently, however, when I start the game I cannot move the cursor in any of the menus and I cannot turn the camera when in-game. I have been at it for hours trying to resolve this issue but I can't figure it out. I've messed with the SkyrimPrefs.ini in my documents and made sure that bGamepadEnable is = 0, I've turned off all mods, ive reset all control settings to defaults, I've reinstalled the game, and I've disabled my second monitor to try and fix it. I can see my windows cursor when I move the mouse to the top left hand side of the screen and when I move it into my second monitor and if I click while the cursor is cisible it minimizes the game. I'm not sure if anyone else has had an issue quite like this one because I can't find any help for it, but I was hoping someone here could help me.

I'm having the exact same issue. Have you fixed it, by any chance?

I had an issue like this yesterday.

I fixed it by deleting the config files and rebooting ny PC.

I haven't fixed it yet. By the config files do you mean the two pref files in the my documents/my games/skyrim folder?

I tried what Vaemer-Riit suggested and deleted the SkyrimPrefs.ini and Skyrim.ini in Documents/My Games/Skyrim and then rebooted my computer. I can confirm that the fix works for this particular problem. Thanks Vaemer.

Fixed for me! I just deleted the .ini files in my documents and completely restarted Steam and now it's working fine! ; )

If deleting the .ini files doesn't work and you play Watch Dogs there is apparently an issue with Watch Dogs where the mouse won't work in any Bethesda games. I'm guessing Watch Dogs doesn't relinquish control of the mouse properly when you close it or something... Usually a reboot fixes the issue.

I'm a little confused at what you're saying as Watch Dogs isn't Bethesda, its Ubisoft. but your solution probably still works cause during my fix I still had to reboot, so thanks for the response

If i leave my control pad plugged into my PC whan I am playing things like Watch Dogs and then go to Skyrim, I have to unplug the controller to get the mouse responding.

I always play 3-rd person character action games on controller and then first person stuff on M&K. It's a pain remembering to unplug my controller between games. More inconvenience than a problem.

Watch_Dogs (Ubisoft) causes errors in gamebryo engine games (Bethesda)
as I said I'm not sure if there is some issue with Watch_Dogs giving up control of the mouse when you close the program or something like that, which causes gamebryo engine games not to gain control of the mouse properly.

That makes pretty good sense. I never had this problem until I played Watch Dogs.

Spookily enough, I have the same issue and have also recently been playing Watch_Dogs..... Conspiracy? Maybe..... maybe.... now let's see if the 'fix' works.....
KoolZoid Jun 11 @ 4:09pm 
Back again - deleted the two .ini files, shut down Steam, restarted everything, had it Autodetect my settings again, started it up..... no mouse input.

Am I missing something here?

Sorry for late response, but when you say you restarted everything, you meant you restarted your computer as well, right?
