Question about Dell Wireless Keyboard Optical Mouse w0147

1 Answer

I have a Dell wireless mouse that I never know when it's going to work and when it's not. It's not the batteries and it's not corrosion of the batteries. Also, I can never figure out how to enable it!

    The mouse is often not functional when the computer returns from sleep or hibernation modes.

Have you read the instructions for set up. The instructions explain how to get the transmitter, keyboard and mouse syncronized and talking to each other. On the Logitech units there is a button under the mouse that initiates connection. Under the keyboard there should be a button as well. The transmitter also has a button.

I have a logitech dell chordless mouse and keyboard with rechargable mouse, the keyboard is ok but the mouse is not communicating, any ideas


better check for corrosion on the battery terminals and see also if its properly placed.
make sure that the battery is not faulty. Fix any loosen connection inside the unit when you open it.
last thing to check is the driver of the mouse. i suggest you run again the driver software to install.

Dell wireless mouse M787C batteries are wired in Parallel not in series...


Hello All, I just received a Dell All in One Computer with the M787c wireless mouse. I installed 2 fresh batteries and noticed after 3-4 minutes one of the batteries was getting warm? I removed that battery and the mouse LED light was still working. SO the M787c mouse was working as it should with only ONE Battery!
I checked wiring of the batteries and found that the Batteries were WIRED in Parallel. Wiring batteries in parallel is not a very good Electrical practice, at all!
I am sure that many owners of this mouse have gone through many batteries because of the miss wiring.
If you mouse does not work with properly with one battery if you are mechanically inclined you can disassemble the Mouse and rewire the batteries in SERIES.
There are 4 screws on the bottom of the mouse, 2 in the bottom underneath the front gliders, and 2 in the top. Happy fixing. Rob

Wireless keyboard and mouse not working, battery in receiver?


The receiver should not have a battery. It gets its power from the USB port. Try uninstalling both keyboard and mouse via (Control Panel...Device Manager) and reinstalling them. Sometimes the drivers get corrupted and reinstalling them will fix that. Also there are on/off switches on the mouse and maybe the keyboard. Check that someone hasn't turned them off to save batteries when not in use.

Okay. Haha i just had same problem at work. Try moving the receiver right in front of keyboard and mouse. I found that the range for the mouse is a little greater than the keyboard. Remember the range on this thing REaLLY sucks, mine wont even go 2 ft. Give it a try and let me know.

Mouse only works for a few seconds and then stops.


have you changed the batteries recently? Wireless mice seem to eat batteries faster. I have a Dell wireless mouse. It will work fine for months and then nothing. That's when I know to change out the batteries. If your batteries are fresh, make sure they are seated in their slots securely.
