Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

I have iMacG4. It has 3 hubs on back of pod. I switched to a wireless mouse. If the base is plugged into one of the three hubs on the back, the mouse works. If it is plugged into the Belkin 6 port hub attached to the computer, it does not work. If the mouse with the wiresis plugged into the keyboard, the sound works. Does this mean I have to go back to a mouse with a wire? I'm going out of my mind with this situation and am ready to throw the damn thing out. Your help would be gratefully appreciated.

It depends on how the mouse operates.check the instructions to see what port it operates from.may not be suitable for the belkin 6 port.

I cannot find the wireless base to my wireless mouse and keyboard kr0401. Can I get another wireless base?


You can buy a wireless mouse and plug the dongle or base into a usb port . Most are Plug & Play so as soon as your pc starts up it should find the program on the wireless base unit and identify it for use . Try ebay.

I have a Medion wireless mouse and the mouse pointer keeps freezing intermittently. The operating system is windows vista home premium.


Make sure the mouse batteries are fully charged.

Also make sure the mouse is not too far away from the base / cradle and there is nothing blocking the sensor on the front of the mouse cradle.

Make sure all the cables are fully inserted. Check both ends of the power adapter plug going into the back of the mouse cradle and the plugs leading to the back of the computer.

Try cleaning the little red LED light under the mouse with a QTip to remove any dust.

Finally try using a different mouse pad. Some work better than others with certain brands of wireless mice.

Also make sure there is not another wireless mouse being used in close proximity. The two can often interfere with each other.

Good luck and please comment back and RATE if this was helpful.

I have an Averatec all in one and how do you connect the wireless mouse?


Wireless mice have two parts. The mouse which needs regular battery charging and the receiver. The receiver is a USB device that plugs into any of the USB ports on the back (near the DVI port) or on the side below the audio jacks. Plugging into a USB hub is an option but can give an extra area of trouble-shooting when it fails.

If the port doesn't work, try a different one. Check that the USB ports aren't disabled for security or power-savings. Make sure the receiver is showing that it is active and that the mouse has good batteries.

One of the biggest issues can be waking from sleep with a USB device. This is changed in the advanced power savings in Windows.

I hope this helps.

(since my wired mice need to be replaced every few years, I suspect wireless mice have similar failure issues.)

Use wired mouse and keyboard (not wireless) and change the USB port you are using to another one.

Connect them directly to the computer, do not use USB hubs.

If no joy reboot in safe mode: turn on your computer and immediately press F8 repeatedly until you get the Advanced Boot screen. Select "SAFE MODE" and press ENTER. After that, restart in normal mode.

Thank you

Two devices stopped working after plugging them into a powered usb hub: a laser usb mouse and a wireless network adaptor. Both were working fine when plugged into a regular usb hub. Got the powered hub...


the two device wont have any issue. but i would suggest to connect the ext. hdd directly to the sys. and it requires more power, and hub does not provide that much power which is required for ext hdd. you can try to connect only the ext. hdd to hub and check.

Frozen computer and mouse problems


I am assuming you use Windows XP.

Try deleting the mouse's drivers in your computer and let it re-detect them.

Right-Clickie MyComputer and drop down to the last option of Properties.
The 2nd Tab should be HardWare. On that page, click Device Manager. Scroll down the list to find the Mouse Driver, or MICE.
Expand the list. Highlight the Mouse and right-clickie it. Select UNINSTALL.

Reboot your computer.

When it all comes back up - if you mouse is still being dorky - then it is either your USB driver [same as above, only delete the USB Root Hubs (all of them) and let that re-detect upon reboot] -
OR
You mouse is dead. Try a friend's mouse.

If the friend's mouse works - Buy a new one. They are $10 at WalMart.

You can do this in any order ... Try a friend's mouse, delete USB hubs & reboot, delete mouse drivers & reboot.
One of the three is your problem. :)
(There is a very small chance that your USB hub has actually suffered a HARDWARE failure.)

Activation of keyboard


Did you receive a install disk for the keyboard and mouse. typically you need to run the install disk and then plug in the usb hub for the keyboard and mouse to be recognized by the computer. If tha does not work, restart the machinew/the usb hub and keyboard and mouse ready. Are there good batteriesin the keyboard, mouse and usb hub?
