Normal 0 Press the Receiver button (and the lights will start flashing.
Then if the Keyboard isn't working, press the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back of the board to connect the keyboard to the receiver.

If the MOUSE isn’t working, push the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back of the mouse to connect to the receiver. Then they should work okay.
Hope this helps. Bud

How to install


Plug in the reciever into the computer and make sure the mouse has fresh batteries. Once you are in Windows, press the link button on the receiver. The indicator light should start blinking. Then within two seconds press the link button on the bottom of the mouse, the indicator light should quit blinking. After re-linking the devices move the mouse to see if it moves the cursor. If the cursor does not move, then move the mouse and see if the indicator light on the receiver blinks. If the device does not blink then try re-linking the devices again.

Hello, hope this isn't a silly suggestion, but have you pressed the 'connect' buttons on the mouse and receiver so that the 2 devices can synchronize?

Changing the batteries does not make the mouse work. the cursor is visible on the screen but will not move. what next?


Have you tried re-pairing your mouse? Should be a button on the bottom of the mouse and a button on the wireless antenna device. Or, If your using a bluetooth mouse make sure bluetooth is turned on, on your computer.
