My Iogear mouse wont work

I purchases a wireless Iogear keyboard/mouse set. The keyboard works perfectly but I cant get the mouse to work. I guess it is not connecting to the wireless emitter. I read some other places that it takes time for it to connect, but I've tried about ten times (following the directions in the instruction pamphlet). Does anyone have any suggestions??

In order for you to make the mouse work with your computer, please try the steps below:

1. Make sure that you're using fresh batteries.

2. Make sure that the mouse is turned on.

3. Hold down the connect button on the receiver (the mouse cradle) and hold down the connect button under neath the mouse at the same time for five seconds and then release the buttons.

4. Try moving the mouse around and that should work.

On the receiver for your wireless keyboard and mouse there should be a button that says Connect. What you need to do, is press that button, then press the button on the back of the keyboard that says connect. Depending upon your keyboard, you may have to then connect the mouse afterwards.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Hello, i currently use a IBM desktop with IBM keyboard and mouse but i just bought a microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse which i just installed into my desktop using the installation CD. They are both...


Hi Tony,
It appears that you have an IBM desktop whose BIOS isn't capable of booting off of a USB keyboard and mouse device. Older computers used to require that a PS2 mouse and keyboard be attached before booting, to prevent you from booting a machine without any way of controlling it. You have 3 options:

1. leave the corded mouse and keyboard attached and never use them
2. update the BIOS for your desktop to the newest one in hopes that the updated BIOS will allow for USB mouse and keyboard operation
3. go to a computer store and get a PS2 to USB converter/adapter. They're small and relatively inexpensive. It plugs into the PS2 port, and makes your computer think that there's a PS2 device connected, when it's actually a USB device.

The GKM531RA comes with a USB dongle which is connected to the computer.

Since you mentioned that the batteries are okay. Locate the small button on the dongle (connect button) and look for the connect button underneath the mouse.

Hold the connect button at the same time for 5 seconds ONLY, and release them both. The mouse should work.

If that did not help, try to use the keyboard and mouse in a different computer.

Last, contact IOGEAR and have them RMA the device. Meaning that the mouse has a hardware defect.

Thank you and good luck!
