My keyboard doesn't work on my dell computer, mouse does. I think it has something to do with the bluetooth I tried new batteries in keyboard also. any ideas


Have you set up the connection between the bluetooth and the keyboard? You have to tell the computer to look for a new bluetooth device and while the computer says looking for it, turn the keyboard on and keep it close to the computer, range is very limited during discovery, also know thew password to enter when the computer finds it and asks for it. Hope this helps

Keyboard locked or not working. three lock lights blinking blue


This isn't a fun solution - the best thing I've come across is to hit both reset buttons (on the computer, and on the keyboard) until both are flashing - pull up your bluetooth settings (from control panel (I've got mine shortcutted into my task bar)), then disconnect the keyboard, and search for a new item - after the computer finds a new keyboard, connect using a new pairing code.

While this might not be the best solution, it works for me, and I don't know of a better one, or quicker!

Dell wireless mouse and keyboard-no instructions


Most Bluetooth keyboards and mice are just Plug-n-Play and does not require any driver installation. You need to isolate the problem, please follow the steps below:

1. Make sure that the wireless adapter of your wireless KB and mouse is properly connected to the USB port of the computer.

2. Make sure that the USB ports of your computer are working.

3. Use fresh batteries for the KB and mouse.

4. After connecting the wireless dongle to the computer, turn on your KB and mouse (there should be an ON/OFF switch underneath).

5. Briefly press the connect button on the wireless dongle and then hold down the connect button underneath the mouse for five seconds and then release it.

6. Do the same steps for the KB.

Have a good day!

(That is the the Num Lock indicator, nothing to worry about.) If it is not working it is likely because USB keyboards can time some time to be recognized by windows, let the computer boot up with the keyboard connected and let sit for up to ten minutes.

Sometimes if other hardware is detected at the same time which requires drivers to be installed, windows will never proceed to installing your keyboard, however you cannot install the other drivers until you have a working keyboard. To solve this, you will need to use an older style PS/2 keyboard to get everything installed and working as they do not need to be detected.
