Question about Computers & Internet

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.

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.

Toshiba Canvio 2TB USB 3.0... wireless mouse problem


Get a USB 3.0 Port hub at walmart or any place that sells electronics. They normally have 4 usb ports on the hub and that should allow you to have both the mouse and the hardrive running since the hub would be plugged into your usb 3.0 port on your computer.

Hallo i can not get my new wireless mouse to work


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.


Make sure you restart your computer with the mouse cradle / base plugged into the mouse port.
Then be sure to connect the base and the mouse by pushing the button on the base unit, then the small button on the underside of the wireless mouse.

Also try using a different mouse pad. Some work better than others with certain brands of wireless mice. And also make sure there is not another wireless mouse being used in close proximity. The two can often interfere with each other.


Thank you and good luck.

Mouse pointer appears. but not working


Try to restart your computer. Since the mouse isn't working you will need to press and hold the power button. If the mouse is wireless, then check to ensure that it has good batteries or is charged. Also, if it is wireless, try pressing the button to "link" it to the base station. The base station will also have a button to push. If it is not wireless, check to ensure that it is connected to the computer. If it is connected to a USB hub and not directly to the computer, then try connecting it directly into the computer and restarting once again. Sorry to hear of this problem. Best Wishes!

My mouse doesn't work with my mac for some reason. I tried new batteries and i tried putting it on my friend's mac and it worked and i tried switching the USB hub and still it doesnt work. it was working...


Try bypassing the USB hub and plugging the receiver directly into a USB port on the computer. Sometimes devices won't recognize properly if they're going through a hub.

The USB ports all share a single power source. It may be that the Ipod being added overloads the connections.

You might want to consider purchasing a USB hub, but make sure you get one with a Power Adapter to boost the current to your devices.

Wireless mouse and keyboard


Push the connect button on the wireless base, then push the connect button on the keyboard or mouse, that is supposed to reconnect the device. Make sure the wireless base is close enough to the keyboard.mouse, and nothing metal is blocking the path between the keyboard/mouse and the base.

KVM GCS1734 with microsoft wireless mouse/keybrd 4000


The MS keyboard & mouse receiver is effectively a USB hub with two devices connected to it. So, plugging it into the keyboard socket on the KVM switch may well work, depending on how that particular switch implements USB. If it just passes things through, it should be OK. On the PC side you should only need to plug in the USB cable from the switch's keyboard port.
