Connect wireless keyboard and mouse to lenovo b550


There should be a small wireless dongle that cam with the mouse & keyboard, generally a small plastic piece on the end of a USB connector. Plug this into one of the USB ports in the back of the computer.

I have a Phillips Freevemts PC, that came with a wireless keyboard, mouse and dongle. The dongle no longer works, can I get a replacement?


The dongle probably has an USB connector. It is very common for
the connector to become bent, after numerous plugging and
unplugging, causing a solder disconnect between it and the
PCB board inside the dongle. Someone with the know-how
in soldering can help you resolder it, then it will be good as
new. Sorry, but such dongles are not for sale separately from
a keyboard and mouse combo.

  • If it is a wireless mouse then it requires batteries.

  • In case if the advent mouse is a wired mouse then it doesn't require batteries.

Wireless keyboard & mouse will not connect


Would try going into the device manager in the control panel and make sure that the usb dongle is being identified correctly by windows. Also, would unplug any other usb devices so that they are not interfering.

Wireless keyboard & mouse will not connect


Then your problem is most likely driver-related. The chances are nill that both mouse AND keyboard are defective. Looks like it is down to one of two scenarios. Either the driver is incorrect or corrupt, or the dongle itself is malfunctioning. The driver would be first choice since it would be a free fix to rule out.

try uninstalling the driver first, then reboot. Next go to mfg website for the keyboard/mouse/dongle and download a fresh driver. Then reboot. Note that preferably, the correct protocol would be to install the driver first, before plugging in the dongle. Hope this helps. One question I can think of regarding the dongle is whether or not the dongle lights up when plugged in - some do. If yours is supposed to but does not, it could be the dongle itself. The bottom line now is between the dongle and a driver really. I'd be willing to bet the mouse and keyboard are just fine they just can't interface because the dongle is the gateway and you know the rest...good luck.

I have an Advent ADE-WLOI1 wireless mouse. Recently moved house and packed up my pc and mouse - now mouse won't work. Tried reset button - no go. My pc is virus infected and am trying to clean it - without...


This seems to be a generic mouse, usb / ps2 connectivity. User needs to press the connect / reset button on the receaver and on mouse. generally.. no drivers or cd required.

mouse has battery.

-check battery

-reconnect (receaver and mouse, if receaver doesn't have button, make sure its connected to pc and power is on, then reset.

try ps2 instead of usb or another usb port, might require adapter. (if im not mistaken it comes with the mouse)

-try another pc

= possibly faulty mouse if still not working? It should work with windows drivers, so no cd required.

you can't get rid of the PS2 because thats where it looks for the mouse, being usb it's not listed in dxdiag, there should be a mouse menu from your mouse and keyboard driver, or in control panel to tweak the Dpi
