Question about Computers & Internet

Not sure if it's a wireless connection issue or a keyboard hardware issue

Keyboard connects to computer via USB dongle that is exclusive to the keyboard (other items cannot connect to computer using the keyboard's dongle) Some keys are either slow to respond to input or completely non-responsive. I've misplaced the original owners manual and have no idea what trouble shooting steps I shoulod be taking

    I have placed new batteries in the keyboard. It's one of those flexible, soft roll up type keyboards, so I'm wondering if maybe some wiring has been pinched or something

Did you replace the batteries in the keyboard? Usually wireless keyboards or mice are powered by AA or AAA batteries. I would replace first to see if that is your problem

SOURCE: keyboard not responding

Solution. My wireles keyboard stopped working except for the F-Lock key, the Media key and the sleep key. It wasn't batteries, even though I tried, communication was there because the above keys were working. Remove the batteries from your keyboard and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Press the red connect button a few times and other various keys every few minutes during that time. This may be the whole "capacitor discharge" trick, but I tired that with someone elses instructions and my keyboard did not work after 2 minutes of key pressing. I think it just needed more time to clear out the secure settings. Good luck, I was about to trash this keyboard until I tried again

Seems like new batteries did the trick. Should start simple.

But I am not totally convinced. I will keep an eye on it.

How to install wireless Keyboard and Mouse?Along with the development of the computer world, various brands of wireless keyboard and mice sets appear, you can purchase them from website or regular computer stores as well. Whatever your case may be, the directions for getting them ready for your computer are all basically the same. So, if you've bought a wireless set recently and you're having some trouble getting it to work, just follow these instructions and you'll be well on your way to wireless bliss!
First of all, wireless keyboards and mice aren't able to receive power from your computer like the wired ones do. Therefore, they need batteries to operate. And that's the first thing you need to do. Turn your keyboard over and you'll see a battery compartment. Take the cover off and insert the batteries according to the + - (plus, minus) compatibility. When you're done with the keyboard, you can go ahead and do the same thing for the mouse.
Once you've got the batteries in place, find a spot on your desk where you'd like to place both the keyboard and mouse. You won't have to move them around anymore, so make sure you find a place you'll be comfortable with. Now, while you're doing this, you'll also want to keep in mind where the wireless receiver will go. If you recall, a tip on that was in yesterday's newsletter.
The next thing you'll want to do is install the software that came along with your keyboard and mouse. Now, keep in mind that if you have Windows XP on your computer, you more than likely won't need to deal with the software at all. You can just plug the receiver into your computer and XP will automatically recognize the new hardware for you. On the other hand, if you're using an older version of Windows, you will need to install the software. To do so, just insert the disk into your CD ROM drive and follow along with the on-screen instructions. That's all you have to do!
The next step is connecting the wireless receiver to your computer, but again, if you have Windows XP, you've probably already done this. If not, it's likely that the wireless keyboard and mouse set you have works via a USB cable. So, all you have to do is find an open USB port on your computer and plug the receiver in. Once you plug it in, your computer will configure the keyboard and mouse so you can start to use them. You'll see a message that says something like "Your new hardware is now ready to use." (In XP, you'll get a pop up message that says "New Hardware Found"). Either way, that means you can now start using your new hardware!
Now that you've got everything set up, the next thing you'll want to do is test the keyboard and mouse, just to make sure everything's working properly. Go ahead and open some programs with your mouse and type some text in with your keyboard. Run through all the keys on your keyboard to make sure there are no problems with any of them and make sure all the buttons on your mouse work right.
Now, go on and enjoy your new wireless keyboard and mouse. Wireless really is the best way to go!

Logitech mouse frozen up we changed batterys in


If the mouse is freezing up though the batteries are fully charged, here's what you need to do:

1. Try to use different batteries just to make sure that it's not a power issue.
2. Connect the wireless USB dongle into different USB ports of the computer.
3. Try to connect the USB dongle in different computer and try to use the mouse (to make sure that it's not a computer issue).
4. Make sure that there's no cordless phone, cell phone and other wireless devices that might interfere the wireless signal.

The Logitech wireless mouse is running on 2.4MHz frequency, same frequency as the other wireless devices. Any wireless device might cause the mouse to freeze.

If same problem occur, then it's a hardware problem. Contact Logitech and RMA the mouse.

Thank you and good luck!

Dell wireless mouse and keyboard-no instructions


Most Bluetooth keyboards and mice are just Plug-n-Play and does not require any driver installation. You need to isolate the problem, please follow the steps below:

1. Make sure that the wireless adapter of your wireless KB and mouse is properly connected to the USB port of the computer.

2. Make sure that the USB ports of your computer are working.

3. Use fresh batteries for the KB and mouse.

4. After connecting the wireless dongle to the computer, turn on your KB and mouse (there should be an ON/OFF switch underneath).

5. Briefly press the connect button on the wireless dongle and then hold down the connect button underneath the mouse for five seconds and then release it.

6. Do the same steps for the KB.

Have a good day!
