I'm hooking up my Memorex wireless keyboard and mouse. I hooked up the two pieces coming off the wireless receptor to the computer and now I can't get the mouse and keyboard to work. Do I press the button on the wireless receptor?

There should be a connect button on both the receiver unit that is plugged into the usb port, and on each device (Mouse, and Keyboard) you will have to press all of these again to reconnect the devices to the computer.

Most wireless mouse and keyboard combinations require that you "authenticate" the mouse and keyboard to the receiver.

Ensure that the batteries in your mouse and keyboard have enough charge in them. Once you have the PC on, hit the button on the reveiver and then under both the mouse and keyboard there should be a connect button also. Ensure you have pressed both of those.

If your receiver runs via USB you will need to wait for windows to recognise it first before the above.

I have a zx4351, touch sreen wireless gateway desk top computer , i had cable co. today to hook it and now my screen does not turn on and has no power going to it what is it?


Your desktop tower/cpu tower has to be turned on to give those hardware power. If you can't turn on your computer then that means you have an internal problem with your motherboard etc. If everything else powers up except for the screen/monitor your video is dead. Find someone you know that has an extra monitor and hook it up to your tower, if it works then it's not your video but the monitor instead.

I have a Dell Inspiron ONE Desktop. My wireless mouse is working properly. However, my wireless keyboard is not functioning at all.


First, make sure that all of your batteries are good and working in all your wireless devices. I am assuming that this is a wireless mouse and keyboard combo. You may have to hook up a corded keyboard at first. Is this a usb wireless device or ps2 (round kind)? Once you have made sure that all your batteries are in good condition, plug all devices in before you start your computer. and be sure that they are in a good distance from the receiver. wait till your operating system has loaded and is either at the desktop or sign in with password window. Hold down the button on the receiver and keep it pressed down while you press the connect button on the keyboard then the mouse. Do not let go of the receiver button till you have connected both devices. Did this work? If keyboard still does not work, with the corded keyboard plugged in, first make sure you have all the software for your brand of keyboard and mouse combo. Once that is done, install it. Go to control panel..keyboard or if the software takes you to a set up area. Follow their prompts. This should work.

Are you using a wireless mouse or keyboard? If so try using one that you plug in. As for the cd rom and hard drive all you need is one cable for each device hooked to seperate connectors on the motherboard. Ususally the hard drive will be sata which is a red cable and can only go onto one connector on the motherboard. the cdrom is an ide cable(grey usually) and there is a seperate connector for that on the mainboard.

HI,
Go into the BIOS utility and set the BIOS to defaults, hit F10, save the changes and exit the BIOS, the computer will restart, see if that helps.

To get into the BIOS hit the Esc or Del key when the computers just starting up.


Good luck.

Wireless mouse and keyboard issues


If you have both sets of keyboard and mouse plugged in, turn off the computer and remove the old mouse and plug in the new mouse. Reboot and if necessary use the keyboard to login. Once windows is loaded let it detect the new mouse and then shut down again. Take out the old keyboard and reboot. You should now be able to use both new pieces without problems.

Computer remains in sleep mode to conserve electricity


This is a known issue in Vista. Computers going into hibernation and then not waking up. I believe it was fixed with the Service Pack 1 distribution, but I'm not 100% certain.
I would recommend that you go into the power options from the control panel and disable hibernation. You can tell the computer to turn off the monitor and the hard drive after a period of time, but just don't leave hibernation enabled.
