Question about Sony VAIO PCV-V210P PC Desktop

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.

Not sure if it's a wireless connection issue or a keyboard hardware issue


Did you replace the batteries in the keyboard? Usually wireless keyboards or mice are powered by AA or AAA batteries. I would replace first to see if that is your problem

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.

How to install wireless Keyboard and Mouse?Along with the development of the computer world, various brands of wireless keyboard and mice sets appear, you can purchase them from website or regular computer stores as well. Whatever your case may be, the directions for getting them ready for your computer are all basically the same. So, if you've bought a wireless set recently and you're having some trouble getting it to work, just follow these instructions and you'll be well on your way to wireless bliss!
First of all, wireless keyboards and mice aren't able to receive power from your computer like the wired ones do. Therefore, they need batteries to operate. And that's the first thing you need to do. Turn your keyboard over and you'll see a battery compartment. Take the cover off and insert the batteries according to the + - (plus, minus) compatibility. When you're done with the keyboard, you can go ahead and do the same thing for the mouse.
Once you've got the batteries in place, find a spot on your desk where you'd like to place both the keyboard and mouse. You won't have to move them around anymore, so make sure you find a place you'll be comfortable with. Now, while you're doing this, you'll also want to keep in mind where the wireless receiver will go. If you recall, a tip on that was in yesterday's newsletter.
The next thing you'll want to do is install the software that came along with your keyboard and mouse. Now, keep in mind that if you have Windows XP on your computer, you more than likely won't need to deal with the software at all. You can just plug the receiver into your computer and XP will automatically recognize the new hardware for you. On the other hand, if you're using an older version of Windows, you will need to install the software. To do so, just insert the disk into your CD ROM drive and follow along with the on-screen instructions. That's all you have to do!
The next step is connecting the wireless receiver to your computer, but again, if you have Windows XP, you've probably already done this. If not, it's likely that the wireless keyboard and mouse set you have works via a USB cable. So, all you have to do is find an open USB port on your computer and plug the receiver in. Once you plug it in, your computer will configure the keyboard and mouse so you can start to use them. You'll see a message that says something like "Your new hardware is now ready to use." (In XP, you'll get a pop up message that says "New Hardware Found"). Either way, that means you can now start using your new hardware!
Now that you've got everything set up, the next thing you'll want to do is test the keyboard and mouse, just to make sure everything's working properly. Go ahead and open some programs with your mouse and type some text in with your keyboard. Run through all the keys on your keyboard to make sure there are no problems with any of them and make sure all the buttons on your mouse work right.
Now, go on and enjoy your new wireless keyboard and mouse. Wireless really is the best way to go!

Wireless keyboard wont work!


Once the batteries are replaced, you need to "reconnect" your devices. Under the keyboard, there's a "Connect" button. Press it, then press the "Connect" button on the receiver that connects to your computer. That should get it going again.

Keyboard loses connection to computer


Is it a usb, ps2 or wireless keyboard? your keyboard doesn't require a driver since it is a plug and play device.

If you're using a usb or wireless keyboard, then might as well update the chipset driver of your computer. If updating the chipset driver fails, they try your computer on a difference computer to see if there's a problem with your keyboard already. If another keyboard works fine with your computer then it means to say that the computer is working fine.

If you're using a wireless keyboard, changing the battery helps.

Wireless Keyboard not connecting


I opened up the Logitech Mouse and Keyboard Settings, turned my keyboard off, changed out the batteries and turned it back on. It then detected the Keyboard and asked for a password, I entered in the password, it said it was rebooting it and asked for another password which I entered (both passwords were given to me in the Settings). Now it is working just fine! Not sure if you have tried this but it might work for you.
