This is sort of general but it just may help.
Make sure your batteries are in correctly.
Make sure the transmitter dongle is in the USB.
Look on the transmitter and the mouse and keyboard
itself (bottom) for a little tiny button that says connect
or reconnect. Move the mouse about six inches away from
the transmitter and press both the transmitter and the mouse.
That should reestablish the signal twixt the two.(or three KB)

My optical mouse KU916AA isnt connecting to the USB receiver. I have fresh batteries in it, but im not sure what button to push.


Go to this Microsoft article and read through: Microsoft kb838398

The steps here includes all troubleshooting you can use for response failures in wireless keyboard and mouse.

If the steps did not resolve your issue, try unplugging the receiver first and reboot the computer. Plug back the receiver and reboot again. This is to refresh the cmos of your wireless keyboard and mouse settings.

If all of these fails, your mouse is deemed defective.

Hope this works for you.

Microsoft wireless mouse model 1007 , will not work

  • Put in the batteries Find the battery covers and slides it off. Insert the appropriate batteries. The wireless receiver that plugs into the computer runs off the computer's power and needs no batteries.
  • Plug in the receiver to the computer. Usually the receiver will plug into the USB port, but some plug into the mouse port. If all of your USB ports are filled, see if the mouse came with a USB adapter. The adapter fits into the mouse port. Be careful not to accidentally force the mouse adapter into the keyboard port.
  • Connect the mouse once you have it plugged in. The receiver should have a visible button that is easily push able by the average human finger. The mouse will usually have a very small hole with a button inside it that can only be pushed by something like a pencil or paper clip. Push both buttons at the same time with the receiver and the mouse relatively close to each other for about 5 seconds or more.
  • Position the receiver in a place that isn't far away from the mouse. Depending on where you are, you can place it on the monitor, on the tower, on the back of your laptop (if you are installing the mouse to your laptop) or on the desk. The furthest a wireless mouse can get away from the receiver without working very well is about 9 feet (2.7 meters), so keep that in mind.
  • Test your new mouse.

If you plugged into the mouse port, restart your computer manually.

If you plugged it into the USB port you may begin using it.

When the cursor moves when you move the mouse, you have connected the mouse properly. If the cursor doesn't move, try repositioning the receiver. If it still doesn't work, you may need to restart your computer (if you haven

I have a microsoft wireless mobile mouse 3000 and i cant get it to connect. i have pushed every connect button in everyway i can think of and it still wont work

There are two possible reasons for this.
1. You may be having an issue with your USB receiver. The receiver may be not be seated properly in the USB slot or the slot you've plugged it into isn't working well with your receiver. Try moving the receiver to a couple of different USB ports and try reconnecting.
2. Your mouse may not be operating correctly. I think the simplest reason for this is that the battery is dead, which is extremely common when using wireless keyboards/mice. Check to make sure the batteries are fully charged.

I have a mini laser mouse says its connected but mouse wont work

You may have to push the search button on the underside of the mouse or change batteries and also puck both the reset for the mouse and computer so it can read from each other make sure that there is no laptop other than your around move any wireless components away from the device or wireless phone. Make sure that nothing is blocking especially metal or objects that could deflect the sensor from reading back and forth. If none of this seems to work. Get another mouse? Thanks for using FixYa!

I have a microsoft bluetooth keyboard and mouse but cant connect them up to get the cursor moving. What can I do?

Read the instructions. You have to install the drivers, batteries, and hook things up in the right order for everything to work. There are usually buttons on the undersides you have to push to get the pieces to talk to each other.
