Hardware keyboard and mouse needs fixed

I am sure that when I recently fixed my AC port on my laptop I somehow pulled the bands connecting my keyboard and mouse to the motherboard away just enough that they no longer work. How would I be able to remove them completely and re-install them? Or is there another way of pushing the bands back into place that I have not thought of yet?

Cannot get mouse to work


1.
If the underside of the mouse has an on/off switch, make sure to set the switch to the "On" position.
2.
Restart the computer. This can resolve the problem, at least temporarily, so that other troubleshooting steps can be applied.
3.
Move the mouse or keyboard closer to the receiver
The receiver is the hardware that receives the wireless signals from the keyboard and mouse and communicates the data to the computer. Most receivers connect to a USB port, either directly or by a cable, but a few types of receivers connect to the PS/2 ports.
. Make sure that the keyboard and the mouse are within 100 centimeters (39 inches) of the receiver. If the receiver is attached to a cord, position it so that it is on the same level surface, close to the mouse and keyboard.

4. Replace the batteries with a fresh set of alkaline batteries and make sure they are correctly installed. If the mouse or keyboard is not working, then replace the batteries, even if the mouse/keyboard software indicate the batteries still have a charge.
Remove the battery cover to access the batteries. For keyboards, the battery access cover is found on the underside of the keyboard. When replacing the batteries look for the positive symbol (a plus sign +) imprinted near the battery compartment or battery cover. Make sure the positive end of the battery is oriented to the positive side of the compartment.

5.
If you have a USB receiver, unplug the USB receiver, wait 10 seconds, and then insert it into another USB port - preferably into a USB port that is closer to the mouse and keyboard. For example, if the USB receiver was plugged into a USB port on the back of the computer, unplug it and plug it into a front USB port.
6.
Resync the wireless keyboard and mouse connections.

Resync the keyboard and mouse connections for receivers with a connect button .
Resynchronizing the keyboard and/or mouse causes the devices to reconnect to the receiver using new identification numbers.
NOTE: The following connection sequence must be completed within 60 seconds. If the sequence is not done in 60 seconds, start over.

Sometimes not detect my mouse and keyboard ..so i changed mouse and keyboard..its now same as problem..keyboard is LED blink in starting only..i can't change even bios without work keyboard...what this...


It sounds like some problem could be in the bios.

Make sure you are connected to the right ports.
In the newer boards the mouse and the keyboard port appear to be same and can plug in as well.
Both ports are PS/2 type and can be confusing...
The problem you are stating seems to be that is what is wrong.

On the back where you connect the keyboard, make sure it is in the right socket...port.
And the mouse as well.

Usb Trouble


The USB ports all share a single power source. It may be that the Ipod being added overloads the connections.

You might want to consider purchasing a USB hub, but make sure you get one with a Power Adapter to boost the current to your devices.

Mouse trouble


start (button) select control panel / system / hardware / device manager / mice & pointing device / double click, select wheel mouse (or whatever mouse you have) right mouse click, properties, select use this device (enable) - But I'm surprised you are having trouble with it.. Have you changed anything recently? Have you always used a ps2 mouse? Try connecting the mouse & re-booting the pc.. Also make sure it's plugged into the correct port, not the ps2 keyboard port.. Especially checkif you are using a usb keyboard.. Rgds

Keyboard and mouse not working


After Pressing the Power On button... Hold the F12 key or on some models it is the Delete Key.. to get you to Bios Setup Utility..
Look there in Advanced Settings or Similar to See if your Keyboard And Mouse show up..
Option 2: The Ribbon cables that connect your Mouse and Keyboard are Located Underneath the Keyboard.. Remove the Keyboard and check to see that the ribbon cables are Secure in the ports..
Changing the CMOS battery is probably not going to fix your problem.. IF your CMOS battery was bad, you would be experiencing The System Time Changing .. your Clock would Show a Different Time Year and Date...... Pulling the CMOS battery for 30 seconds or so then resetting it might Reset it, This resets the BIOS and Resets Any Connected Hardware.... On Some Laptops Doing this Is not enough, You will also need to short the J1 Jumper pin...
and Some other Laptops have an affixed CMOS battery that cannot be removed unless Unplugged OR unsoldered From the Mainboard...


Hope this info helps..

Cannot connect wireless keyboard and mouse


I am assuming that this is an INFRA-RED device, with
plug and play capability.

1) Make sure that the infra-red port is turned ON on your PC,
in the BIOS and in Windows (using control panel)

2) Make sure that the infrared driver is working:

My Computer ==> Right Click ==> Properties ==>
Hardware ==> Device manager ==> ....

Find the Infra-red device and check its status.

Some laptops have a mechanical switch witch controls all
wireless ports. If you shut-off the Wi-Fi, the blue-tooth and
the infra-red will also be disabled.

3) Check for tiny reset buttons on the keyboard, mouse and
the receiver. Press them repeatedly.

4) If the device is communicating, and infra-red ICON
should appear on you taskbar (RHS).

Right click the icon and make sure you enable IR
communications AND plug and play.

5) Make sure you have installed any drivers that came with
the keyboard, if any.

6) Again, make sure that infra-red communications are enabled
in the control panel.

5) Failing that, it is possible that the keyboard is defective,
or the infra-red port on your laptop is NFG, it would not
be the first time.

6) You may want to take your keyboard to a computer
shop, and ask the staff the try it with a different PC.

Alternately, try a different keyboard with the laptop.

My acer 5100 will boot up but the keyboard or mouse pad will not work


first thing you want to try and find out if this is a hardware or software problem. Try connecting an external keyboard and mouse (USB if you don't have mouse and keyboard ports)...then go into the device manager (On XP its control panel, system, hardware tab, device manager)...and see if your laptop keyboard and mouse is registered there. If so then uninstall them and reboot...there is a slight chance that they will reinstall and work, but may be more complicated than this. If they do not show in the device manager, then there is most likely a hardware failure and they may need to be replaced or check the connection.

Wide vertical black and white bands


Hi, You may want to try and unplugging the power and video connectors of the Dell monitor. Check for anything out of the ordinary with the AC plug and the video connector. If none, plug them back in making sure that they are snug and fitted properly. If problem persist, see if it is possible to rotate the way the AC plug is connected to the mains (sometimes this works and can be done if you are not using 3-prong or the uneven 2-prong AC plug. Sometimes, this can also be done on the other end of the AC plug). Check your docking station (though unlikely but possibly). If still a no go and your laptop works ok, then your external monitor needs some looking at. This would involve circuit analysis and component level repair. Perhaps your best bet is to have a qualified professional take a look at it. Good luck and pls post back how things turn up or if you need further information. Kind regards.
