HP Expansion Base - Wireless Keyboard & Mouse Set-Up

I purchased my hp expansion base on ebay, and I have never used the keyboard and mouse. Now I have a new lcd tv and want to use this system, but I don't know how to get the mouse and keyboard to work. Is there a part that I may not have received? (the unit was used when I ipurchased it)Thank you

    I do not have the receiver with a usb connector on it, unless you are referring to the usb connector that is part of the expansion base itself.

    Thank you jrbay. I think I may have that part somewhere, but when I opened the box I couldn't figure out what the one separate part was. I don't recall that it had a usb connector on it. I wonder if there is somewhere that I could take a look at one, or if you know where I may purchase a replacement.

    There should be a small module with a wire attached to it (separate from the base unless it is already plugged into a USB port and dangling off to the side somewhere) that has a "connect" button on it somewhere. That is the receiver that communicates with the mouse and keyboard. If it is missing then I think we have found your problem.

    There should be a keyboard (no wire), a mouse (no wire) and a receiver with a USB connector on it. Are these the three parts that you have?

Any Radio Shack or Best Buy for sure and even Staples and the like will have wireless devices that should help you figure out how to hook up what you have. For that matter a new set might be so inexpensive as to save you the hassle.

Good luck,

I cannot find the wireless base to my wireless mouse and keyboard kr0401. Can I get another wireless base?

You can buy a wireless mouse and plug the dongle or base into a usb port . Most are Plug & Play so as soon as your pc starts up it should find the program on the wireless base unit and identify it for use . Try ebay.

O/s will not recognise keyboard/mouse


maybe it did not recognize it because the system has not yet installed the drivers or maybe the keyboard and mouse is faulty.

Get an external keyboard, as this will help to know where the problem is coming from.

I wish you all the best.

It won't recognize the keyboard

I tried forever to connect the keyboard & mouse, then realized that I didn't have to hold the connect buttons on the receiver & keyboard for so just wouldn't connect...until I figured out that you should only press the buttons for a second then immediately let go...both keyboard & mouse (while both cheap looking) have been working great since! Love the hot-buttons/keys!

Wireless mouse and keyboard

Push the connect button on the wireless base, then push the connect button on the keyboard or mouse, that is supposed to reconnect the device. Make sure the wireless base is close enough to the keyboard.mouse, and nothing metal is blocking the path between the keyboard/mouse and the base.

Receiver seems not working

I'm pretty well sold that the technical support at HP is completely worthless. They have some tree they look at for answers but have no actual technical ability, making them about as useful as an extra **** on your elbow
