    Yeah, same thing. I wonder if it is just dead. Not the batteries, the whole keyboard I mean.

The keyboard doesn't work, even though I just changed the batteries. Now what?


>when wireless keyboard or mouse runs out of battery, you need to re-establish the bluetooth connection in order for them to be functional again. To do so, you need to press the connect button on the keyboard and the USB dongle connected to the computer at the same time for about 8-10 seconds to establish connection. After that, you can try typing again. Same thing applies to wireless mouse.

there are three reset buttons one on the bottom of the mouse and one on your keyboard's backside and there is a reset button on the receiver that plugs into the USB press all at once untill lights flash and try to get it to connect again.

2-use "Reset" (in you case it might be "Connect") buttons on your mous's backside and also on receiver.

If all the above did not work do open the keyboard it self and make sure the areal (a wire beside the frame going all around the edge of the keyboard inside) is connected to the circuit board if not reconnect.

Mouse not responding


Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch. Hope this helps you. Bud

Are the batteries good?

Try
Normal 0 Press the Receiver button (and the lights will start flashing.
Then if the Keyboard isn't working, press the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back of the board to connect the keyboard to the receiver.

If the MOUSE isn’t working, push the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back of the mouse to connect to the receiver. Then they should work okay.
Hope this helps. Bud

Microsoft wireless keyboard stopped working (mouse still works)


I have been fighting this same problem for about 5 months.

I have the Wireless Optical Desktop 3.0 (Wireless Comfort Keyboard & Wireless Optical Mouse 2.0). Three or four times a week it stops working at random intervals. The driver DLLs simply disappear. I can see this by going to Control Panel -> Keyboard Properties -> Hardware -> Properties -> Driver -> Driver Details. The two dll files are there when it works and the dll files are gone when it stops, gone, no drivers at all. An old PS2 will still work in a pinch.

I wonder if the problem may be caused by my Windows Live OneCare or by a Windows Update that keeps reinstalling itself and failing. Alternatively, could it be that some malware is trying to gain control of the PC?

Reinstalling the software & rebooting fixes the problem --for about a day.
