    Are you using a PS2 (small round) keyboard or the USB keyboard which is what most people are getting now? And what operating system are you using.

    have you tried another keyboard ?
    If the mouse has problems, you will not receive a message, but it simply won't work.
    If possible, can you please use another keyboard with another connector type (PS2 or Mini DIN/USB) ???

Under BIOS settings, check that the Mouse and Keyboard [may be worded differently] are enabled, and not disabled. Also, if your using Windows then check that the devices drivers under device manager, under system. Update them. If still not working, boot up in safe mode and see if they work in that mode. If they do, then your OS files are corrupt, if not, buy a new keyboard and mouse.

Keyboard failure


This may be an issue with your usb drivers. Update those first, then if that fails, I would try one of those adapters that goes from USB to the old school mouse and keyboard connections and plug that in to see if it works.

I have a dell wireless mouse and it used to connect with my computer and work fine. I've had it almost a year but now it will not connect to my dell laptop. The light on my laptop and on the mouse will...


Most wireless keyboards and mice have their own wireless receivers (one that should be connected to the computer). The wireless receiver usually has a connect button that you need to press in order for you to connect the keyboard or the mouse. Try holding down the connect button on the receiver and on the keyboard at the same time for five seconds and release them both after five minutes.

If that work, do the same for the mouse.

Hope this helps and have a great day!

Computer doesn't recognize keyboard


This is sort of general but it just may help.
Make sure your batteries are in correctly.
Make sure the transmitter dongle is in the USB.
Look on the transmitter and the mouse and keyboard
itself (bottom) for a little tiny button that says connect
or reconnect. Move the mouse about six inches away from
the transmitter and press both the transmitter and the mouse.
That should reestablish the signal twixt the two.(or three KB)

Dell PowerEdege 1600SC not recognizing IO devices


Just go into the bios and insert the correct parameters. you shut it off before it could save the settings. Or hit fi on boot and it should take you into the bios and you cand sort it out in there. If you want an easy way, just do a system restore. Start,Programs, accesorys, system tools, system restore, just go back a day or two before you had that issue, and you should be good to go, good luck

Problem with KVM switch and Vista


Your problem has nothing to do with the Operating System (Vista), it has something to do with the brand of your computer. I have similar problem before, I have Vista (Dell), but the time I connected another Vista (Sony Vaio), everything worked correctly.

This is what you need to do:

1. You have to make sure that you are using a standard USB keyboard and mouse.

2. Connect first the keyboard and mouse directly to the Vista computer to see if the USB ports of your computer are working properly.

3. You may power cycle the KVM switch by disconnecting it from the computers (including the keyboard and mouse) and leave it disconnected for 2 minutes.

4. Reconnect everything after two minutes and then reboot the computers.

5. Try using different USB keyboard if problem exist after power cycling the KVM switch.

Wireless keyboard doesnt work with switch


once you have switched pc you will need to re-sync the wireless keyboard and mouse with the new pc, because although you have switched pc the keyboard and mouse do not know this. there should be a reset/resync button on the bottom of both the keyboard and mouse
