There is a red indicator on the keyboard icon of the wireless receiver, and I am not sure what it indicates. I have changed the batteries, but it is still there. Any ideas?

I had the same situation and just realized that the keyboard has batteries also. I changed them and pushed the little green button on both the back of the keyboard and the wireless receiver. The red light went out and problem solved.

Exterior Wireless Switch
Step 1
Position the laptop so that you're facing the screen and the keyboard is in front of you.
Step 2
Check the front edge of the laptop's casing.
Step 3
Identify the wireless indicator light labeled with a wireless antenna icon. The "On/Off" switch to the left of the indicator light is the wireless switch.

Keyboard does not type


If all the keys on the keyboard have stopped functioning follow the instructions below to reconnect the keyboard.

This problem is likely to be a lost connection. The connection between the mouse and the USB mini-receiver or the keyboard and the USB mini-receiver can be lost due to several reasons such as:
  • Low batteries
  • Moving the USB mini-receiver from one USB port to another
  • Moving the USB mini-receiver to another computer
  • Plugging the USB mini-receiver into a USB hub or other unsupported device such as a KVM switch (your USB mini-receiver must be plugged directly into your computer)
  • Using your cordless mouse/keyboard on metal surfaces
  • Radio frequency (RF) interference of more powerful wireless devices such as:
    • Wireless speakers
    • Computer power supplies
    • Monitors
    • Cellular telephones
    • Garage door openers
Eliminate any problem sources mentioned above that might be affecting your devices.

Follow the procedures below to reconnect your mouse and keyboard.
  1. Make sure the USB mini-receiver is directly and securely plugged into a working USB port on your computer.
  2. Make sure the mouse is turned on. The on/off indicator on the bottom of the mouse should be green. If the on/off indicator is not illuminated, press and hold the red connect button on the bottom of the mouse until the on/off indicator is green.

  3. Press and release the red connect button on the underside of the USB mini-receiver. This will broadcast a signal to your mouse. This broadcast will last only a few seconds, so you must perform the next step quickly.

    Red Connect Button
  4. Quickly press the red connect button on the bottom of the mouse for 1 second, then release it. The power indicator will flash briefly and then turn green. The mouse is now connected to the receiver.

    Red Connect Button NOTE: Holding down the red button on the mouse for more than 2 seconds may cause your mouse to turn off instead of connecting. If this occurs, start again at step number 2.
  5. Move your mouse to see if the cursor moves. If the cursor follows the mouse movements, your mouse is now connected.
  6. Press and release the red connect button on the underside of the USB mini-receiver. This will broadcast a signal to your keyboard. This broadcast will last only a few seconds, so you must perform the next step quickly.

  7. Quickly press and release the red connect button on the underside of the keyboard.

  8. You will hear a short beep. The keyboard is now connected to the receiver.
  9. Test your keyboard to see if it is working. If the mouse now works but the keyboard still does not, see Knowledge Base article 9144.

How do i set up my hp laptop to wifi


Please Understand wireless network settings and setup:

Wireless networks depend on special-purpose radio receivers and transmitters that substitute the exchange of messages over the air for the exchange of messages that occurs over wired connections on conventional networks. When you power on your PC, Windows Vista automatically searches for available wireless networks.
The network icon in the system tray, shown in Figure 1, enables you to view a list of local networks that Windows Vista detects. Notice that the network icon in this figure is marked with a red X, which indicates no network connection is currently established.

hpsmb_laptoppcwireless-fg01.jpg
Figure 1: A red X indicates no network connection is active.
When you click this icon, a window opens indicating you're not connected to a wireless network, as shown in Figure 2.
hpsmb_laptoppcwireless-fg02.jpg Figure 2: The detail window for the network icon provides a link to create a network connection. The window also includes two hyperlinks: Connect to a network and Network and Sharing Center. Click the Connect to a network link to open the Connect to a network window, shown in Figure 3.

I have an iogear usb kva switch connected to two PCs (one desktop; one laptop). It used to work fine with a wireless keyboard (HP), but after I replaced it, it stopped allowing me to switch between PCs...


Hi ther. make sure that you connect them to the correct port. If using a wireless keyboard, connect the receiver to the keyboard port. check underneath for the keyboard icon. Make sure that the receiver is connected to that port.

Cannot connect wireless keyboard and mouse


I am assuming that this is an INFRA-RED device, with
plug and play capability.

1) Make sure that the infra-red port is turned ON on your PC,
in the BIOS and in Windows (using control panel)

2) Make sure that the infrared driver is working:

My Computer ==> Right Click ==> Properties ==>
Hardware ==> Device manager ==> ....

Find the Infra-red device and check its status.

Some laptops have a mechanical switch witch controls all
wireless ports. If you shut-off the Wi-Fi, the blue-tooth and
the infra-red will also be disabled.

3) Check for tiny reset buttons on the keyboard, mouse and
the receiver. Press them repeatedly.

4) If the device is communicating, and infra-red ICON
should appear on you taskbar (RHS).

Right click the icon and make sure you enable IR
communications AND plug and play.

5) Make sure you have installed any drivers that came with
the keyboard, if any.

6) Again, make sure that infra-red communications are enabled
in the control panel.

5) Failing that, it is possible that the keyboard is defective,
or the infra-red port on your laptop is NFG, it would not
be the first time.

6) You may want to take your keyboard to a computer
shop, and ask the staff the try it with a different PC.

Alternately, try a different keyboard with the laptop.
