There should be a sticker under the keyboard with some sort of information on it.
If not then it's cheap and nasty anyway and is probably why you are now experiencing problems.
In general, the mouse will start to do that if you get even a small amount of dust/dirt in the optical hole (where the light comes out underneath). Give it a good hit of air. If it is cordless, then check the batteries as well.

How to switch from keyboard to mouse and back


Most PCs these days allow you to plug in and use both a keyboard and a mouse at the same time. To use the mouse, you just move it around; to use the keyboard, you just press the desired key. Unless you have a very unusual (e.g., homebuilt) PC, there's no "switch" to change from one input method to another. Look at the cords on both your mouse and the keyboard. If they both end in a small rectangular plug, then both use what is called "USB" to talk to the PC. Look for corresponding sockets on the PC (front and rear) and make sure both the keyboard and mouse are plugged in. If your keyboard does not have this style plug, it likely will have a round plug called a "PS/2." Look for a matching socket on the PC and make sure the cord is plugged in. Note the PS/2 plug has a flat side that must be lined up with the flat side on the socket.

Ideacentre mouse and keyboard lockup


There are some basic steps that you can take to make sure that your wireless keyboard and mouse have the best chances of working.


First and foremost, replace your batteries.

This is the leading cause of failure. Strong batteries are vital if your wireless keyboard and mouse, including Microsoft, Logitech, and other brands, are to work correctly.


Weak batteries can be frustrating to deal with. Sometimes the mouse or keyboard will work fine, and sometimes they start acting odd.


This is where the jerky and slow motion problems can show up. The problem is that Alkaline batteries can provide plenty of energy at first, even if they are worn down.



After a few minutes or hours of use, however, they lose their capacity and the jerky problems can start up. You may even deal with it, then walk away from the computer for the rest of the day (such as leaving your office).



While you are gone, the batteries regain some of their capacity. The cycle repeats itself until eventually the keyboard or mouse do not work at all.



Another common problem is that the receiver for the wireless keyboard or mouse can be too far away for them to work. I have personally seen cases where the mouse works if used on one side of the mouse pad, and not the other.


This was due to the distance of the mouse from the receiver being too great when on the far side of the mouse pad.


The same can be true of a keyboard.

This will also cause the same jerky motions to a mouse, and missed keys on a keyboard.



The solution to this problem is to move the receiver closer to the keyboard and mouse. If the receiver is of the USB fob type (similar in shape to a USB memory stick) then you can buy a USB extension cable and place the fob closer.


Perhaps placing it next to the monitor would work best. If the receiver has a tendency to fall behind your desk, a small, clear piece of scotch tape will hold it down, and will be one hundred percent removable if you decide to move it later.



If your wireless keyboard or mouse have a desktop receiver, try moving it a little closer.

You may also need to press the "connect" buttons on the receiver and also underneath the keyboard and mouse.


If they have an on/off switch you should turn them on and off.

Hopefully this article will help you to fix your Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse slow, **** or lockup problems.


If not, check with the technical support and Frequently Asked Questions sections of your manufacturer's support website.


hope this helps

i assumed that you use device PS2 (Mouse & Keyboard), this rarely situation, but you haved installed and not more better, because the problem not with your system, but with your hardware, maybe you can change with USB Mouse Device and for Keyboard PS2 is better than USB Keyboard.

Keyboard and mouse not working


On the bottom of the mouse is a tiny little button that says connect or reconnect...press that to finish the connection process. Sometimes that very same little tiny button is on the bottom of the transmitter, look to see and press. You can best push the button with a pen or pencil.
Check to see that your batteries are in correctly also.
I hope this helps and does the trick for you.
Good luck and please leave a rating, thank you kindly...

My wireless keyboard seems to be selective about which letters to acknowledge whenI type any faster than a two year old despite new batteries It is the one that came with the hp iq 775 touch screen desktop...


Wireless keyboards do have some delay, especially when the batteries are low, are you sure the batteries have a charge? Sometimes even new batteries are dead or very weak.

Some wireless keyboards only have a range of a few feet, but, moving it closer kinda defeats the purpose of having one in the first place.

Have you tried to go to (classic view): start>settings>control panel>keyboards... to make adjustments?

Myi keyboard and mouse are not working the keboard is new i tried to put in the software but you have to press an arrow or use your mouse to do it and neither is working


make sure that you plug in the mouse/keyboard before you turn on the computer and ensure that you have new batteries in both if they are wireless.

You may also need to pair your keyboard and mouse if they are wireless. You can do this by pressing the button on the wireless receiver then pressing the button that is typically on the bottom of the mouse and keyboard. you may need a paper clip to do this because sometimes the button is very small.
