Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse and Keyboard Cut in and Out

I recently received a Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 v2.0 and Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 6000 v3.0 for Christmas. After installing the software accompanying the mouse and keyboard, the mouse, and occasionally the keyboard as well, will cut in and out without warning for 3-4 seconds, and sometimes as long as 10 seconds. The frequency of this seems to vary with the amount of of work I'm doing - if I'm typing a word document, it seems to work relatively well, only cutting in and out maybe every 5 minutes. But if I'm running a game that is taking up most of the memory, they will have perhaps 10 seconds in between 3-4 second glitches. I have seen this problem mentioned in a couple of customer reviews as well, but no solution. I switched mouses and keyboards with my mother, who has an identical set, and I still had the problem on my computer. I've also tried my mouse and keyboard on my laptop and they worked perfectly.

This is what I have tried all to no effect: Changing the port of the USB receiver, rebooting my computer, uninstalling the software, reinstalling the software, and replacing the batteries.

    I have the same exact problem. Vista 64, Quad-Core w/ 6GB of RAM - so it *can't* be a resource/memory issue. However, I have noticed it dropping out during somewhat CPU-intensive tasks.

    Mouse works fine for a minute or two, then freezes. unplugging/replugging the dongle fixes it for another couple of minutes (sigh).

    Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 v2.0 just freezes up on me. It happens 3, 4, 5 times every half hour. Pretty annoying. I've replaced the batteries, updated the driver, and restarted. Nothing helps. I shake the mouse, and tap it down on the mousepad, and it unfreezes. Help??

One thing to note is that the receiver operates on the 2.4GHz band, as do most wireless networks. I have found that this is a cause of my intermittent issues with this device. Operating in the 5GHz band for wireless (N) should fix this.

I had the same problem wth the mouse. In desperation I moved the USB sender from the back of the PC to an unused USB port on my HP L1940T. Lo and behold, problem has gone away, but I suspect more by luck than judgement. David.

Hi, I'm not positive but it sounds like your memory needs to be incr4eased. How much memory do you have installed now? This effeminately would cause the problem. Bud

Microsoft wireless laser keyboard 6000 v2.0 keyboard not working

You have to press the button on the receiver that is directly connected to the computer. While doing this, press the connect button both the mouse and the keyboard. I did this and now my keyboard is working, despite the battery indicator turning itself off a few seconds after I install it.

Hope this solves your problem.

did you make sure you resynced the mouse and/or keyboard to the wireless receiver. usually you do this by holding down the button on the receiver until the light starts flashing then you press the button on the bottom of the mouse/keyboard until the flashin stops or changes. you have to repeat with each additional device.

hope this helped.

Set up of a Microsoft wireless keyboard & mouse

The devices probably came with a USB cable and a receiver, or just a USB equiped receiver, that you need to plug into your computer. Go ahead and plug the cable and receiver into the computer so that your wireless mouse and keyboard has a means to communicate with the computer. Next, Here is a website address where you can download drivers for your mouse and keyboard. You must first choose either mouse or keyboard, then the exact product and model, then the operating system, and finally the language. repeat the process for the other device (mouse or keyboard, whichever you did not choose first). Good Luck! And let me know if there are any further problems.
