After restarting my computer the cursor stopped responding to the mouse.


You're probably running Windows, and that's a common problem, and usually very easy to fix. If you are using a wireless mouse, remove the USB receiver, wait 10 - 20 seconds and put it back in. If that doesn't work, remove USB rec. , shut off mouse and go through a restart. Try restarting with them removed, if it doesn't work, try restart with them in and turned on. You can use keyboard commands to do this next part If that doesn't work, go into the Control Panel, system, device manager, mouse, right click ( lined square to right of space bar ) then properties, reset to default - The windows symbol beside space bar is the start menu, the arrows control scrolling through options or moving the page, TAB changes what the computer is focused on, ALT and F4 closes whatever program you're focused on - pressing it twice will cause a restart. And if your comp ever jams up, press CTRL, ALT and DELETE at the same time, opens task manager and unjams,,, usually. Hope some of that helped. Grimm

I can't understand the instruction:Power on the mouse or keyboard. Where is the power


Restart your computer depending on the motherboard it may need to be turned off and back on to reset the fact the receiver for the keyboard was loose or unplugged. Older motherboards would get fried if you tried to plug a keyboard or mouse into a running system, they had to be shut down first and since technology has made modifications and this is one of them.

    I am getting a funny sound when i press any key on the keyboard. The keyboard is not responding even when i am typing in word. Just a beep sound when i press any key. The mouse is working fine. What might...


    most likely one of your keys got stuck down.
    take a close look at all the keyboard keys (most likely it is either the Shift, ALT, CTRL or spacebar)

    it is also possible the connection to he computer is not fully connected. try to re-plug it.
    lastly- did you try to restart the computer?

    Logitech mouse doesn't respond to my clicks


    Even though it does not make sense, if you are using a wireless keyboard that is part of a combo pack (mouse included) sometimes (some brands) you have to plug in all cords on the keyboard/mouse receiver.

    I had this problem for a very long time as well. Turns out this is an encryption issue. It's off-balance. You need to reset the encryption, and here's how:

    On the LEFT side of your wireless keyboard press and hold Ctrl+Alt, and press F12, then release all three buttons. Now push the Connect button on your Wireless Receiver, then the connect button on your wireless keyboard. Now press Esc. Try it. See if it works. It did for me.
