Ideacentre mouse and keyboard lockup


There are some basic steps that you can take to make sure that your wireless keyboard and mouse have the best chances of working.


First and foremost, replace your batteries.

This is the leading cause of failure. Strong batteries are vital if your wireless keyboard and mouse, including Microsoft, Logitech, and other brands, are to work correctly.


Weak batteries can be frustrating to deal with. Sometimes the mouse or keyboard will work fine, and sometimes they start acting odd.


This is where the jerky and slow motion problems can show up. The problem is that Alkaline batteries can provide plenty of energy at first, even if they are worn down.



After a few minutes or hours of use, however, they lose their capacity and the jerky problems can start up. You may even deal with it, then walk away from the computer for the rest of the day (such as leaving your office).



While you are gone, the batteries regain some of their capacity. The cycle repeats itself until eventually the keyboard or mouse do not work at all.



Another common problem is that the receiver for the wireless keyboard or mouse can be too far away for them to work. I have personally seen cases where the mouse works if used on one side of the mouse pad, and not the other.


This was due to the distance of the mouse from the receiver being too great when on the far side of the mouse pad.


The same can be true of a keyboard.

This will also cause the same jerky motions to a mouse, and missed keys on a keyboard.



The solution to this problem is to move the receiver closer to the keyboard and mouse. If the receiver is of the USB fob type (similar in shape to a USB memory stick) then you can buy a USB extension cable and place the fob closer.


Perhaps placing it next to the monitor would work best. If the receiver has a tendency to fall behind your desk, a small, clear piece of scotch tape will hold it down, and will be one hundred percent removable if you decide to move it later.



If your wireless keyboard or mouse have a desktop receiver, try moving it a little closer.

You may also need to press the "connect" buttons on the receiver and also underneath the keyboard and mouse.


If they have an on/off switch you should turn them on and off.

Hopefully this article will help you to fix your Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse slow, **** or lockup problems.


If not, check with the technical support and Frequently Asked Questions sections of your manufacturer's support website.


hope this helps

Hi elizabeth,

It seems that you are selecting the quick format option when installing Windows XP.
Try running the XP setup again and choose the option to format the hard drive with the NTFS option, but use the standard option & NOT the "quick" option.
Let me know if this solves the problem.

Best wishes,
Graeme

How to restore my Dell Optiplex 170L without losing my XP professional OS


Try CTRL + F11 when powering up.

What this does (or should do) is initialize Dell's System recovery utility. It will restore the system back to it's factory original state (the state the system was in when it left the factory). This won't remove the operating system, but if you've upgraded the OS or made significant custom changes to the computer (software wise) you may lose all the changes. If XP professional is the original OS on the system when you bought it, the recovery will leave the OS on the system. If you've upgraded to Pro, and you still have your install disc, or have access to an install disc and your XP Pro product key, you can reinstall XP Pro after the recovery.

If the mouse does not work after doing a clean boot and reinstalling Windows on top of itself does not work, then you may have to reformat the HD and do a clean Windows installation.

I've used the 62150 black combo (not 62150N Deluxe silver) on XP Pro for years with no problem. Manual said to sync, press ID button on receiver and LED will blink fast, then slower. While blinking, press ID button on keyboard and mouse (need pen or something to press mouse button). If receiver LED blinks whenever you move mouse or hit keyboard, it is receiving. If OS doesn't recognize, may be connectors. I had 2 separate PS2 ports and had to use an USB adapter for the keyboard cable.
