Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Not sure how helpful this will be to a lot of people but one of the common questions seems to be how to reconnect after changing batteries IE changed batteries and now my mouse/keyboard won't work at all.
Seems that most of the time people forget that they have to
1- push the connect button on the usb receiver and that should be right on top of the unit since these ones are not usually hidden and are easy to push without the paperclip
2- push the connect button on the mouse/keyboard (needs a paperclip)
Once that is done the devices should find each other and establish the connections to each other again. These connections should remain in effect until the batteries die on you again at which point you will need to do this procedure again.
Should also note that the connect buttons on either your mouse or keyboard are small buttons and usually recessed in the bottom of the devices, this keeps them from getting hit or pushed all the time, so a paperclip is usually recommended to push the buttons with. Also as a final thought connections need to be made fairly quickly so check out your devices to see where the buttons are located at and get your paperclip ready, you only have somewhere between 5-15 seconds to make the connection or else you have to start the whole thing all over again.
Hope this helps some of you
