I hit something on the keyboard that made my monitor go blank


The specially colored "Fn" key is intended to work for extra functionality. Try combining the Fn + Function keys where key symbols vary from system manufacturer so I can't tell how which key will work to re-enable your screen back (try Fn + F7).

Dell mouse not responding; diagnostics results says test passed. mouse works on other PC


Hello,
There is a very good chance it's one of two problems. First, while theoretically you can connect tons of USB products, sometimes USB ports can be kind of hinky... Try unplugging something else USB based and plugging in the mouse or try several different ports. Also be sure it's not plugged into a USB hub and is going directly into your computer. If this works play with the arrangement of your USB devices until you find a configuration that works, maybe you'll have to switch out a printer or external drive while using your USB mouse...
If this doesn't provide a solution the next thing to do is to uninstall the pointer device driver in device manager and allow it to re-install.
If you don't have an alternate mouse to complete the task, here is the keyboard shortcuts for Windows although depending on your version of Windows it may be slightly different.
-First hold the windows key and hit the r key (win+r)
this will bring up the run menu
-Next type mmc this will bring up a management console
-Next press the ALT key and hit the down arrow key
(this should drop down the file menu, if it doesn't please try ALT+F)
-Use the arrow key to scroll down to Add/Remove snap in and hit enter.
-Use the arrow key to scroll down to Device Manager and hit ALT+A to add the device manager to the console. Hit enter.
-Make sure local computer is selected if this menu comes up and hit enter.
-Hit enter one more time bringing you back to the console with the device manager added.
-Hit tab to get to the center console and scroll down to mouse.
(If tab isn't doing anything please hit the ALT key once.)
-Hit enter to open the tree if it isn't already
-Scroll down to mice and other pointing devices (or something along these lines) and hit the right arrow key to expand the tree again.
-Select the USB mouse with arrow keys
-Hit the alt key again then the down arrow (not together) and then the right arrow key until you get to the action menu and use the arrow key to go down to uninstall and hit enter.
-Wait a moment and then go back to the action menu (you may have to hit tab just keep trying tab and the down key (not together) until a menu opens. Go over to the action menu again and choose scan for hardware changes. The computer should recognize the mouse and now work.
I hope this helps you. Thank you.

Nothing happens when I hit the ''enter'' key on my keyboard - can you help? I use a laptop with an external keyboard - the enter key on the actual laptop works as it should - but for some reason the enter...


If it is still dormant after you power everything down, you probably have not mistakenly hit something. There may be something physically wrong with the key. Try the keyboard on another computer. If the enter key works reliably there, you have quite a puzzle. But if it fails there as well, see whether the enter key moves as smoothly as the other keys. If it is a larger key, it may have an "equlaizer bar" to make it move smoothly that may have become detached. In that case, look at similar keys to figure out how to reassemble it properly. Also look for dirt of any kind under it or between it and nearby keys.

I cannot use my keyboard and mouse. Something is wrong with my devices


Make sure the keyboard is working in bios. When you boot the computer hit f2 or Del. key to make sure the keyboard is working. Also make a note that the keyboards light blink while turning on the pc.

If you are able to go to BIOS that means the keyboard is working fine.

Boot your computer in safe mode by tapping F8 key while the computer is booting. Select safe mode and check if the keyboard and mouse is working in safe mode.

If it is working in safe mode. Do a system restore to a date where everthing was working fine.

Please revert with the result of above .

Keys on keyboard not working properly


go control panel, hit mouse and find default settings. hit default, ok and do a reset on your computer.
If you have a special install disk for your mouse when the system starts back up ,test your keys then install the disk(or CD). if this does not correct your problem , check to see if someone changed the language on your pc. If english, buy a new keyboard.

Not all keys on keyboard work properly


Not likely, if the regular alphabet and numbers don't work then there is something sticky spilled under the keys.
you can remove the back and the membrane and wipe it clean. takes a bit of work.

This might sound very obvious, but have you replaced the battery?

Have you tried resetting the mouse and the USB receiver?
