This can be a problem with the driver that controls your USB ports. Your drivers can be located here. Make sure they are up to date and try again. If it doesnt remedy the problem, it may be hardware related.

With most keyboards they cannot be adapted for USB if it is a PS2 type. It is possible to have a keyboard for very low in cost. I would suggest getting a USB keyboard.

With Windows 7, many of the older keyboards will not work. I have some old type high end Windows Keytronick type boards. These go back to before 2002. They will not work with Windows 7.

Ok, try this in the steps ordered
1 remove the receiver from the USB port
2 remove the battery from the mouse
3 turn on the pc
4 after everything is loaded on the pc, plug the mouse receiver into the USB port
5 put the battery back in to the mouse and let it "find" the receiver.
If these steps don't work, try doing the steps and use a different USB port. If that doesn't work try a different battery in the mouse.
If none of this works and the receiver hasn't been bent (happens allot in laptops), then it sounds like your mouse took a dump.

Fairly new mouse (new batteries also)not working. Solid blue light when plugged into USB port but cursor will not move at all when click mouse buttons or scroll bar. Rebooting system nor unplugging USB...


First make sure your mouse is installed properly. Go to Device Manager and see if it lists the mouse and has no conflicts. Also, try a different USB port, especially if it doesn't show up. If your receiver and mouse have reset or connect buttons on them you'll need to push those also. try alternate batteries. if none of these suggestions can solve your problem you may be looking at a defective mouse.

Mouse and keyboard have no power


If your mouse and keyboard work properly with another computer or laptop the problem could be :
A) if devices are USB :
- defective USB port : chose another USB port;
- USB port inactivated in BIOS : check and activate;
- motherboard defective : replace motherboard.
B) if devices are PS/2 :
- damaged PS/2 ports : buy a PS/2 to USB adapter for your mouse/keyboard or buy USB mouse and keyboard;
- motherboard defective : replace it.

KVM converter


Buy a usb hub and an usb extension, so that you can have 4 or 6 free usb at the front of your computer, and you can switch devices using usb rather then the mouse converter . Using the converter on mouse and keybord make easier for the plugs to slip out, and usb is better. Note some usb modem and some other device do not support usb hubs, you have to plug them straight into the free computer plug , if you have any.
