Acer wireless mouse and keyboard connection problem
Hi. I moved my tower and and when I went to use my wireless mouse and key board they were not working? I don't know where the Set up disk is as I have moved house after the inital setup etc. I have an acer system. The wireless keyboard is a Y-RK56A and the mouse is a M-RAF95. It only came with the mouse and the keyboard. I have re booted the desk top but to no avail, and I have tried pressing the connect buttons, again with no response. Any ideas? Mandy
Re: acer wireless mouse and keyboard connection problem
Unplug the USB cable associated with the keyboard and mouse while the computer is still on. Plug it back in to a different USB port. This should cause Windows to re-detect them and reinstall the drivers automagically. Let me know if that works.

I recently put batteries in a wireless key board and when I went to use it---nada

try restarting the computer with the mouse switched on and see if the computer recognizes the mouse
The most important external device that connects to your computer is
your mouse. Used in coordination with the wireless keyboard, the mouse is
essential to using any current operating system. Many people are not
aware of the functions that mouse keys actually perform. They are rather
Decide where the keyboard will be placed, whether it is on your desk or a table. Spend a little time experimenting with positions and placement to make sure your wrists and arms will be comfortable. You should consider ergonomics before you set up the keyboard to avoid repetitive motion injuries later on.
Install the batteries (usually three AA) in your wireless keyboard. Replace the cover securely so the batteries are connected properly. Turn the keyboard on.
Get out the wireless receiver that came with your keyboard. Position it close to your computer, but not closer than about 8 inches, as the computer itself can cause interference with the wireless signal. You will also want to set the receiver away from other interference-causing devices, such as radios, TVs and telephones.
Ensure that your wireless receiver is no more than about 6 feet away from where you plan to set your keyboard.
Insert the CD containing the accompanying software into your computer. A dialog box should appear on your screen. If the install instructions don't pop up right away, manually access the CD by double-clicking its icon or selecting it from the Start menu.
Plug the wireless receiver into a free USB port on your computer. If you don't have any ports remaining on your computer, you can use an external USB hub instead.
To fix the problem, please press the connect connect button on the bottom of the mouse and the connect button on the reciever and relaese both the buttons together. this would rest the wireless connection and then the mouse should work fine.
make sure there is new batteries in both the mouse and keyboard. Also the wireless receiever that connects to the computer is responding as well.
After you get new batteries put in and also have the receiever plugged in. press the caps lock, num lock keys and see if they light up on the receiver. If they light up then things are working, if they don't then bring up the notepad and see if any of the keys show up in notepad when you type and also see if the cursor on the screen moves for your mouse.
Hopefully both of them will work once you change batteries. If both don't work after changing batteries then you'll need to get a new wireless keyboard/mouse kit.
Good morning! please check/review the cable connector connections of you're mouse & keyboard, it might be interchanged to its proper port terminal. If still not working, try to use another mouse & keyboard. best regards
you need to resync the mouse and keyboard to the wireless receiver. you hold the button down on the receiver until you see a flashing light and then you press the button on the bottom of the key board. then you do the same thing for the mouse.
