Question about Keyboards & Mice
I replaced the batteries on my wireless keyboard and now it will not work. I am at a different computer now. My wireless mouse works.
Turns out when I stored the keyboard, the batteries leaked. I had to unscrew the back plate and clean out the residue left from the batteries so the contacts worked properly. It was not exactly easy but I did get it working. You have to be careful opening the back as the rubberized cutouts that back the keys will want to fall out. Make sure you replace everything just right or else your keys will not operate properly and you will have to undo and redo the whole thing over again! Watch out especially for the rubber backing the upper keys (numbers and specials). Hope this helps.

You need to reset the keyboard by turning it over and pressing on the reset button. If it still doesn't work, press on the receiver button then press the button on the back of the keyboard. It resets and connects the keyboard to the system. Hope that will fix it. Bud
