Step 1

  1. Check to be sure your "Number Lock" or "Function Lock" keys aren't lit. These can lock out certain parts of your keyboard. If either of these is lit, press them to unlock the locked portion of your keyboard. These can be found at the top right on a laptop and between the number pad and main keys on a desktop keyboard.
  2. Step 2 Save all open programs using your mouse. Use your mouse to restart your computer. This will only work if your computer isn't frozen. If your mouse doesn't move, press the power button on your Dell until the computer turns off. Press it again to restart. If the issue was lack of memory or a locked program, this will unlock your keyboard. Continue to Step 3 if the keyboard is still locked.
  3. Step 3 Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.
  4. Step 4 Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.
    For desktops, disconnect the keyboard from the desktop. Reconnect after one or two minutes.
  5. Step 5 Reconnect the power adapter or AC cord. Start your computer.
  6. Step 6 If your keyboard is still locked on a Dell desktop, disconnect the keyboard. Restart your computer and reconnect the keyboard after the system boots. Allow your operating system to recognize and reinstall the keyboard.

Connect an additional wired keyboard to your pc. And when the freeze happens check if the pc responds at all, using the wired keyboard. If its not responding , its an indication of a faulty PSU or motherboard.

Mouse Stops Responding


You need to reset the mouse and keyboard to the sensor. On the sensor(base) you should have a button and under the mouse you should have also a button. Press the sensor(base) button first and quickly the one under the keyboard and mouse. If the doesn't work shut down the system, unplug the mouse and keyboard sensor(base) and re-plug it back in . Start the system and try the process again.

Keyboard's keys sometimes don't respond


It is not a driver it is a keyboard that is having troubles itself unfortunately, you can try to find new one on eBay since that ones printed wires sort of are broken. What happens is that your keyboard pops out a little and disconnects some letters so you need to press in the middle to get it back to work, the same thing was happening to previous one.

Keyboard wont respond


Often this is simply because the radio link between the receiver and the mouse/keyboard has been broken. Some possible reasons for this are: flat batteries, insertion of new batteries, connector to the computer removed, etc.
In the first instance, you should restore the Logitech devices to a defined status (reset). To reset the device:
Remove the batteries from the mouse/keyboard for approximately ½ hour.
Press and hold the "Connect" button on the receiver for 15-20 seconds. Make sure that the receiver is connected, the PC is switched on and that there are no batteries in the devices. After resetting, insert new batteries and restore the connection as follows:
  1. Press and hold the "Connect" button on the receiver for 1-2 seconds.
  2. Then immediately press the "Connect" button on the bottom of the mouse (locate this button before you start, all cordless mice have a "Connect" button)
  3. Move the mouse around to check that the connection is working correctly
  4. Press and hold the "Connect" button on the receiver again for 1-2 seconds.
  5. Then immediately press the "Connect" button on the bottom of the keyboard (locate this button before you start, all cordless keyboards have a "Connect" button)
  6. Use the keyboard to check that the connection is working correctly
  7. Both devices should now be working correctly
If one or both of these devices is still not working, try them on another compatible PC system to ensure that the fault does not lie with your PC system.

Mouse stops responding randomly


The issue may not necessarily be with the mouse. Are you able to use the keyboard once the mouse freezes? If you not even able to use the keyboard, there is some application installed on your computer or a virus due to which the mouse freezes. If, in case, the keyboard works even though the mouse is stuck, try changing the USB port or try a different mouse. Please revert back with any other observations. Good Luck
