SOURCE: Mouse not responding

Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch. Hope this helps you. Bud

Replace batteries in keyboard and re-sync the devices

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>- --> Synching Mouse or Keyboard with Wireless Optical Desktop trnsp.gif Question My mouse or keyboard doesn't work with my Wireless Optical Desktop (Model Number: 64373). What's wrong and how do I fix this problem? trnsp.gif Answer Your mouse or keyboard has lost its sychronization with the Wireless Optical Desktop, which can occur after changing the batteries, for example.

To synchronize your wireless device with its receiver:

  1. Move the device within three (3) feet of the receiver.
  2. Press the button on the receiver.
    If the receiver has an LED, the light blinks.
  3. Within ten (10) seconds, press the button on the underside of your wireless device.
    If the receiver has an LED, the light glows solidly when synchronization is successful.
Early production units of some wireless devices may require repeating the above instructions two or three times.

Timing, distance, and objects impeding the wireless signal may influence your success. While usually unnecessary, some customers have reported better results by:
  • Holding the wireless device very close, within three (3) inches of the receiver.
  • Entirely ignoring the receiver's light.
  • Simultaneously holding the buttons on both the receiver and the device for from ten (10) to twenty (20) seconds.

SOURCE: I loaded an older version of the Kensington

Ok, well this is a fairly common thing, so try this below, remember you WILL have to re-install every USB device again, so have the drivers at hand, whenever you plug the USB device in again for the "First Time" again. Use a NORMAL PS/2 keyboard, and try booting up in safe mode too...or one can navigate with TAB and Arrow keys to perform the task, tedious but doable.
Remove and reinstall all USB controllers To remove and reinstall all USB controllers, follow these steps: Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl in the Open box, and then click OK. Click the Hardware tab. Click the Device Manager button. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers. Right-click every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers node, and then click Uninstall to remove them one at a time. Restart the computer, and then reinstall the USB controllers. Plug in the removable USB devices, and then test to make sure that the issue is resolved.

Now i find that to install anything USB, it is imperative that the software be installed FIRST before plugging in ANY USB device, ONLY plug the device in, either, when asked to by the install program, or at the end, and after a reboot, then and only then, should you plug in your USB device, here it may or may not ask for drivers if so, show them where the drivers are so it can install them, if this happens, at the end, reboot, with the USB device still attached, and at next desktop, all should be working, if not, unplug, and replug it in again, and it should work. If it doesn't then most likely the device itself is faulty, to test this try to install on another machine.

How to connect/sync the mouse and keyboard to the receiver?


On all wireless keyboards/mice there is a button on the bottom of each device that sends a signal to the receiver. I grabbed an image from google that shows where this button is on your model.
Press the button on the receiver then press the button on the keyboard. If that doesn't work I would try the other way around just in case.

Hope this helps.

If you still have problems with it I would try unplugging the receiver and plugging the receiver into a different usb slot and try pressing the button again after the receiver is connected.

Can i get the wireless keyboard n mouse without the 2.4GHz usb receiver


The wireless mouse works by sending a radio frequency (RF) signal between the mouse and a USB receiver on the computer. Unlike a wired mouse, it needs batteries and it also needs to be switched on.

the problem is that most Wireless Keyboard and Mice combos use Composite USB, the KVM however is expecting one signal on each entry port (one for mouse, and one for Keyboard).

replace yoru wireless Combo for a standard Keyboard and Mouse to make this work.

A work around would be using a MS Wireless Mouse and a different brand of Wireless Keyboard using both Wireless receivers and plug them into different ports on the KVM

What is a receiver for a wireless keyboard?


Hello.

A receiver is a small usb stick included with your wireless keyboard and mouse. It receives the wireless signal from your mouse and keyboard and send it to your computer.

Sometimes it looks like a usb flash drive or a plastic thing with a usb cable to plug in your computer.

Hope it helps!

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.

  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.

Cannot get mouse to work


1.
If the underside of the mouse has an on/off switch, make sure to set the switch to the "On" position.
2.
Restart the computer. This can resolve the problem, at least temporarily, so that other troubleshooting steps can be applied.
3.
Move the mouse or keyboard closer to the receiver
The receiver is the hardware that receives the wireless signals from the keyboard and mouse and communicates the data to the computer. Most receivers connect to a USB port, either directly or by a cable, but a few types of receivers connect to the PS/2 ports.
. Make sure that the keyboard and the mouse are within 100 centimeters (39 inches) of the receiver. If the receiver is attached to a cord, position it so that it is on the same level surface, close to the mouse and keyboard.

4. Replace the batteries with a fresh set of alkaline batteries and make sure they are correctly installed. If the mouse or keyboard is not working, then replace the batteries, even if the mouse/keyboard software indicate the batteries still have a charge.
Remove the battery cover to access the batteries. For keyboards, the battery access cover is found on the underside of the keyboard. When replacing the batteries look for the positive symbol (a plus sign +) imprinted near the battery compartment or battery cover. Make sure the positive end of the battery is oriented to the positive side of the compartment.

5.
If you have a USB receiver, unplug the USB receiver, wait 10 seconds, and then insert it into another USB port - preferably into a USB port that is closer to the mouse and keyboard. For example, if the USB receiver was plugged into a USB port on the back of the computer, unplug it and plug it into a front USB port.
6.
Resync the wireless keyboard and mouse connections.

Resync the keyboard and mouse connections for receivers with a connect button .
Resynchronizing the keyboard and/or mouse causes the devices to reconnect to the receiver using new identification numbers.
NOTE: The following connection sequence must be completed within 60 seconds. If the sequence is not done in 60 seconds, start over.

Key board not working plz help me


First, try to replace the batteries and make sure that the switch is turned ON. Then, check the wireless USB adapter if there is a small button that you use in order to connect the keyboard or mouse.

Briefly press that connect button, then hold down the connect button on the keyboard for five seconds. If that did not hep, try to connect the USB receiver into different USB ports of the computer, or might as well, try different computer just for isolation.

If the keyboard still does not work, but the mouse does, then there's a problem with the component on the keyboard that transmits signal from the keyboard to the USB adapter.

You may need to send the keyboard and USB adapter to the manufacturer for repair.

Thank you and good luck!

I bought a logitech keyboard and mouse how do i connect to my computer and turn it on


It looks like a wireless keyboard and mouse. My Logitech keyboard and mouse have a USB 2.0 receiver, which plugs into any USB 2.0 port. Some have small USB receivers that look like memory sticks. It might be mounted on the bottom of the keyboard or the mouse. My receiver is a small box with a wire that runs to the back of the computer and plugs into the USB port. The receiver has a connect button to send a signal to the mouse and keyboard. Once they are installed you can use the button to make the mouse and keyboard recognized, by the OS.
