Your unit is wireless so the most likely is the USB Wifi receiver has lost connection. Unplug the USB receiver and plug it into a different USB port.
It is possible the unit battery has run down. Replace it with a fresh battery.
If your unit also has a wireless mouse with it and the mouse is still working, you may just have a faulty keyboard. It happens.
Please add more information to get specific assistance. Are these wireless devices? If wired, do they use USB or PS/2 connections.
For wireless devices, try replacing the batteries and resynching to the receiver. (You may want to check putting the receiver in different USB ports.)
For wired devices, disconnect and reconnect. For PS/2 devices, you will need to restart the computer to check if the devices work. For USB devices, try connecting to different USB ports.
Next step, try using a different keyboard and mouse (that work on another computer (stick to USB or PS/2 to match the current pair)). Try a wired set if the problem is with a wireless pair. If those work, continue diagnostics on the wireless keyboard and mouse. Check if the mouse and keyboard work on another computer. If they don't work with another computer, replace them.
If another USB keyboard and mouse pair don't work in any port, your USB ports may have failed. Check if even one port works enough to access the Device Manager. (Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager (Win7); similar directions in other versions of Windows) Check for a problem with the drivers (For USB ports, scroll down to the USB drivers and look for a triangle with a yellow exclamation point or red x). Try to update the driver or roll it back. If that doesn't help and one USB port works, a USB hub may solve the problem.
Otherwise if the USB or PS/2 ports do not work with any devices and the driver fix doesn't work, then I'd suspect a problem with the ports on the motherboard. Replace the motherboard/computer.
Flip the mouse over and with the with the USB receiver detached ( which it should be anyway) remove the access cover by pressing in the outside edge of the cover to access the battery compartment. In there, you will find two AA sized batteries. When replacing, make sure you orient them with the right polarity as shown on the small tag inside the mouse.. Hope that helps...
If this is a wired mouse, try connecting it into different USB port or different computer so that you would know if there's a problem with the USB ports or with the computer or with the mouse.
If this is wireless, try the following:
1. Replace the batteries of the mouse. 2. Make sure that the mouse is turned ON. 3. Try connecting the USB wireless adapter of the mouse into different USB ports. 4. Connect also the adapter into different computer. 5. Make sure that there's no interference between the adapter and the mouse such as wireless phones, cell phones and other wireless devices.
Wireless mouse, cordless phones and cellphones are all running at 2.4Ghz frequency, so if there's a wireless device that's running on the same wireless freq, then it would interfere with the mouse that would cause the mouse not to work.
If same problem occurs after checking everything, then contact the manufacturer of the mouse for RMA (repair).
Is this a wireless mouse? If yes, you need to isolate the problem. Please follow the steps below:
1. Use fresh batteries. 2. Connect the wireless receiver/dongle into different USB ports of the computer. 3. Make sure that the mouse is turned on and then try to reconnect the mouse to the receiver by briefly pressing the connect button on the receiver and then hold down the connect button on the mouse.
Your wireless mouse must have come in two pieces, the USB connector the mouse itself. Insert
the USB connector of your wireless mouse to your laptop and
press simultaneously the button in your USB connector and the button in
the wireless mouse. This is done in order to pair the mouse to the USB
Try disconnecting the Mouse Receiver from the
USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When
the program asks you to connect the MouseReceiver to the USB
port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
