My mouse keeps dying even though it has fresh batteries

I have a Dell wireless keyboard and mouse. The keyboard works fine, but the mouse keeps dying, even though it has fresh batteries. It works for about 20-30 seconds and then dies. I have to keep pressing the green button to get it to "wake up". Please help.

SOURCE: Dell optical mouse quit working

I found the solution!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had the same problem and I had an idea of what it was and sure enough i was right......Check your updates/installs from microsoft. Look for "Update for window Vista (KB938371)"....this update will disable your mouse! If its installed you cant uninstall it by going into control pannel and uninstalling it. The way I found to get rid of it if its installed is to do a "Restore Point". Restore to an earlier date. You may have to "restore" a day or two earlier from when it was installed. I tried a "restore point" on the same day but an hour earlier, didnt work...took me two days prior (restore) for my mouse to work again. Dont forget to turn off "automatic update" so as it doesnt install again and your back to this. Im going to spread the word as much as possible and contact Microsoft of this, hopefully they put out an update for this B.S. I went through a lot of research to figure this out and a lot of trial and error, please pass it along

SOURCE: Mouse Stopped then Keyboard

You need to synchronize the connection again. there should be a reconnect button on the bottom side of the mouse and keyboard. mostly green in color. press that and within 30 sec. press the reconnect button on the receiver. that should fix the problem.

SOURCE: Dell Wireless Keyboard stopped responding, please help.

The keyboard should have a button underneath it. Press the button on the usb controller first and then the button on the keyboard. Repeat a few times to see if it connects. If you are still having trouble try another set of batteries as some batteries are not designed for wireless products.

Mouse keeps turning off


Hi if the the mouse keeps turning off then there might be a prob with the power source on the mouse (i.e battery),change the battery if havent done that or check the contacts for the battery inside the mouse. If all this fails and issue doesnt affect the keyboard,it might be the prob with the mouse itself. Hope this will help you. Cheers

Wireless keyboard and mouse not working, battery in receiver?


The receiver should not have a battery. It gets its power from the USB port. Try uninstalling both keyboard and mouse via (Control Panel...Device Manager) and reinstalling them. Sometimes the drivers get corrupted and reinstalling them will fix that. Also there are on/off switches on the mouse and maybe the keyboard. Check that someone hasn't turned them off to save batteries when not in use.

Mouse only works for a few seconds and then stops.


have you changed the batteries recently? Wireless mice seem to eat batteries faster. I have a Dell wireless mouse. It will work fine for months and then nothing. That's when I know to change out the batteries. If your batteries are fresh, make sure they are seated in their slots securely.

Dell wireless mouse


I had this problem, but only when my batteries were dead. Check the contacts on the batteries to make sure they're working. Are all the buttons failing too? It might be a broken microswitch (or whatever they use these days). It sounds like you're looking at a new mouse if it's not contacts. Unless someone else on this forum has different ideas.

It looks as if the mouse is kaput, as it does the same on another computer, and the other mouse works fine on this computer..

Keyboard not responding


The keyboard has probably died. (It happens often). Here's a great inexpensive combo to replace your current one. https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-MK270-Wireless-Keyboard-Mouse/dp/B00BP5KOPA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1491364851&sr=8-1&keywords=Logitech-MK270-Wireless-Keyboard-Mouse

Dell Wireless Mouse does not track and skips


Could be radio interference. I tracked my similar mouse problem down to emissions from the ethernet adapter that connects over the house mains wiring.
