Re: keyboard/mouse not working

You need to restore to a previous date before you installed the wireless mouse / keyboard.

If that dont work then your only solution is to format and reinstall since it might be you could have damaged a few vxd files window's needs to use those devices


if that wasnt done

shut down compuer

2.) plug mouse into green ps2 port and keyboard into the blue one

3.) turn on computer

Wireless mouse won't work, have replace battery, rebooted laptop removed and replaced mouse connection etc. Was working fine until yesterday

Is it not working at all or is it moving erratically across the screen? If it doesn't seem to be working at all, turn off your mouse then unplug the receiver's USB cable from the laptop for about 5-10 seconds then plug it in to another USB port. It may detect a new device, just let it do the automatic installation if it asks. You should here a 'tada' or ding sound when it is plugged in. When installation is completed or about 10 seconds after you hear the sound, turn your mouse back on.

If it still doesn't work, try shutting down your laptop completely instead of just rebooting it.

If it still doesn't work after that, make sure you have a spare USB mouse available then uninstall the software for your wireless mouse or mouse/keyboard combo then reinstall it.

Keyboard has stopped working. have replaced batteries, tried to reconnect wireless channel and still nothing. I then rebooted and still nothing. Is is time to give up? Also, a side note the keyboard...

I have had the same problems on an XP configuration. You need to completely uninstall the Logitech drivers and first connect a wired keyboard.
Then reboot and follow the installation instructions for the Logitech keyboard/mouse combi. This probably means running the installer and then connecting the USB device.
It can actually take a few reboots before everything works, very annoying stuff.

Microsoft wireless desktop receiver 3.1. All 3 light stay on!?!?

using a manual keyboard and mouse, make sure the driver is installed. then, remove and reinsert the wireless receiver, and wait for windows to find it. Next, on the wifi devices, scan for signal. If that fails, reboot and try again. Sadly, this is typical of any blue tooth kb and mouse set. it either works very well, or not at all. Thats why i put my money into standard wired equipment.

Keyboard and mouse stopeed working

make sure that you put the keyboard and mouse back in the same usb ports you took them out of and it will work, but if in different usb ports than before you will have to install the drivers again.

KB985W mouse works but my keyboard doesn't

Did you use the CD software program that came with the Keyboard and mouse to install the Keyboard?
Also try connecting the Receiver to another USB port to ensure that you don't have a bad USB port.
Hope this helps. Bud
