    is the light on? if so is it flickering mildly or wildly?

    do you have any kind of blue tooth devices or other such things that may be causing interference?

Resynchronize your device with the receiver loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To resynchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, follow these steps. Note When you synchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, put the device near the receiver and put other wireless keyboards and mouse at least 6 feet away.

  1. Press the button on the receiver, and then verify that the light on the receiver starts to blink.
  2. If a dialog box appears on the screen in several seconds, follow the instructions that appear on the screen. Otherwise, go to the next step.
  3. Press and release the Connect Channel button on the bottom of the mouse or the keyboard.
  4. Check the green light on the receiver. A steady green light means the synchronization was successful. If the problem persists, try steps 1 through 4 again.
  5. For the Wireless Notebook mouse: This issue can occur if the micro-switch on the bottom of the mouse is not released. Use a pin or a pen to try to release the button if it is depressed.
Also if it is a USB then try: different USB ports.

Keyboard stopped working


http://www.ascendtech.us/emachines-kb-0705-ps-2-keyboard-black_i_kbdemkb0705bps2.aspx

Things I see here.
1) The second Keyboard you plugged wasn't any good either.

2) The PS/2 port for your keyboard on your motherboard, isn't any good anymore.
Computer off, plug it into the Mouse PS/2 port, and use a USB mouse.
BIOS will reset the I/O address for that PS/2 port, and set it for the Keyboard, when the computer is turned back on.

You may have to;
A) Turn the computer off
B) Unplug from power.

C) Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. Let go of the Power On button. Do this same procedure two more times.

What you are doing is draining residual power, clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.

Keyboard plugged in, USB mouse plugged in, plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Still no?
Motherboard replacement.

You didn't unplug the old Keyboard, WITH the computer on, and plug the new Keyboard in, did you? It isn't a hot-swap device. The computer must be off when unplugging a mouse, or keyboard.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Asus CS5111 keyboard stopped working


Try taking the batteries out of the mouse and let the receiver find the keyboard first, then once the keyboard is found put batteries back in mouse and let the receiver find the mouse.

Keyboard stopped working


Hi there.
Firstly check the battery compartment for any leakage from the batteries while you was away, if there is leakage clean it off and reinsert the new batteries.
If there is no leakage insert the batteries.
Now, does your mouse have a docking station? I am guessing you have because it sounds like your keyboard is wireless.
There should be a connect button on the mouse docking station, if there is press it and hit the connect button on the keyboard and then hit the space bar, hopefully your problem will be solved.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

My wireless optical mouse is no longer working


You replaced the batteries. Okay. Did you install drivers for the mouse from a CD? Are you using Windows XP? Do you notice any change if you use the mouse on a darker surface as opposed to lighter surface? If the computer installed the drivers for you, then you might want to delete them in Device Manager (might be called something like HID-Compliant Mice. Single click on that entry, press the delete key. You might have to reboot your PC after that. From there you might have to unplug, then plug in the mouse again and you should notice the driver reinstalling. Give it a second and all should be good.

*Access the Device Manager by right-clicking on My Computer, select Properties, go to the Hardware tab and select Device Manager.

Hi,

1)Verify that the batteries are correctly installed in the keyboard and mouse. If possible, use a fresh set of alkaline batteries. 2)Reset the keyboard and mouse connections : --With the receiver plugged in, press and hold the Connect button on the receiver until the activity LED flashes. --Press and hold the recessed connect button on the underside of the keyboard until the activity light on the receiver stops flashing. When you release the button, make sure it does not stick in the depressed position. --Press the Connect button on the receiver again until the activity light flashes. --Press and hold the recessed button on the underside of the mouse until the activity light on the receiver stops flashing. Make sure the connect button does not stick in the depressed position. --Make sure that the receiver is at least 20 centimeters (8 inches) away from other electrical devices (computer, monitor, keyboard, etc.). --Remove any other objects that are between the keyboard, mouse, and the receiver, especially speakers. Hope this should resolve the Issue. Thank you.

I have an Advent ADE-WLOI1 wireless mouse. Recently moved house and packed up my pc and mouse - now mouse won't work. Tried reset button - no go. My pc is virus infected and am trying to clean it - without...


This seems to be a generic mouse, usb / ps2 connectivity. User needs to press the connect / reset button on the receaver and on mouse. generally.. no drivers or cd required.

mouse has battery.

-check battery

-reconnect (receaver and mouse, if receaver doesn't have button, make sure its connected to pc and power is on, then reset.

try ps2 instead of usb or another usb port, might require adapter. (if im not mistaken it comes with the mouse)

-try another pc

= possibly faulty mouse if still not working? It should work with windows drivers, so no cd required.
