key board and mouse locks


ok so title says it. my mobo is an asus a7m266-d both lock unexpectedly at times latel;y seems like once a day. i'm not sure if its slack thats causing the problem. when it happens i hit the restart button and it stays locked. itll go thru the memory test continue to boot the system but they are still locked unless i hit the power off button. what can i do about this? or where should i start to look? do i need to update the bios? if so i never done that before. but slack even tho keyboard and mouse is locked everything up on my screen still runs. if i have a d/ l goin on it continues. i can also hear buddies siging on and off when it happens.
