Question about Sony VAIO PCV-V210P PC Desktop

1 Answer

I can't connect to my computer with my wireless keyboard

I was prompted to change the batteries in my keyboard and now it seems like I've lost the connection to my computer. The wireless keyboard icon is gone from the bottom right corner. I have checked to make sure the batteries are the right kind (plain vanilla AA's) and that they are good batteries. Is there something obvious that I'm missing, like an on/off switch?

There is actually a CONNECT button on the bottom of the radio frequency receiver (a circular or rectangular box connected to the pc with usb cable) .

First, you must have the keyboard within 11 inches of the radio frequency receiver; the next step has two parts and must be done wihtin 10 seconds of each other. Press the CONNECT button on the radio frequency receiver first, now press the CONNECT button on the keyboard (should be on the top right - look underneath if its not on the front)

Communication should now be established.

How do i connect my wireless keyboard to my toshiba dx735?


The wireless keyboard should have come with an adapter that plugs into one of the usb ports of the computer. The wireless keyboard also needs a battery.

If you ask me the wireless keyboard and mouse are a waste of money because just when you need them to work, the battery goes dead at a critical time. Also, if I've got to be sitting right next to the computer to use them, why not use a dependable wired product?

Just make sure you know where the wired keyboard is, because you're going to need it.

I have a Dell Inspiron ONE Desktop. My wireless mouse is working properly. However, my wireless keyboard is not functioning at all.


First, make sure that all of your batteries are good and working in all your wireless devices. I am assuming that this is a wireless mouse and keyboard combo. You may have to hook up a corded keyboard at first. Is this a usb wireless device or ps2 (round kind)? Once you have made sure that all your batteries are in good condition, plug all devices in before you start your computer. and be sure that they are in a good distance from the receiver. wait till your operating system has loaded and is either at the desktop or sign in with password window. Hold down the button on the receiver and keep it pressed down while you press the connect button on the keyboard then the mouse. Do not let go of the receiver button till you have connected both devices. Did this work? If keyboard still does not work, with the corded keyboard plugged in, first make sure you have all the software for your brand of keyboard and mouse combo. Once that is done, install it. Go to control panel..keyboard or if the software takes you to a set up area. Follow their prompts. This should work.

Cannot get mouse and keyboard to connect


Use a Wired one to troubleshoot your wireless ones. Thats about the best you can do. It may simply require the driver re-installing. But units such as this go faulty all the time for no good reason.

Wireless keyboard will not reactivate when battery was replaced.


Besides replacing the batteries, you need to resynchronize the wireless connection for the keyboard to your computer.

To do this, press the "Connect" button under the keyboard, then press the "Connect" button on your receiver that connects to your computer. That should bring the keyboard back to life.
