Ideacentre mouse and keyboard lockup


There are some basic steps that you can take to make sure that your wireless keyboard and mouse have the best chances of working.


First and foremost, replace your batteries.

This is the leading cause of failure. Strong batteries are vital if your wireless keyboard and mouse, including Microsoft, Logitech, and other brands, are to work correctly.


Weak batteries can be frustrating to deal with. Sometimes the mouse or keyboard will work fine, and sometimes they start acting odd.


This is where the jerky and slow motion problems can show up. The problem is that Alkaline batteries can provide plenty of energy at first, even if they are worn down.



After a few minutes or hours of use, however, they lose their capacity and the jerky problems can start up. You may even deal with it, then walk away from the computer for the rest of the day (such as leaving your office).



While you are gone, the batteries regain some of their capacity. The cycle repeats itself until eventually the keyboard or mouse do not work at all.



Another common problem is that the receiver for the wireless keyboard or mouse can be too far away for them to work. I have personally seen cases where the mouse works if used on one side of the mouse pad, and not the other.


This was due to the distance of the mouse from the receiver being too great when on the far side of the mouse pad.


The same can be true of a keyboard.

This will also cause the same jerky motions to a mouse, and missed keys on a keyboard.



The solution to this problem is to move the receiver closer to the keyboard and mouse. If the receiver is of the USB fob type (similar in shape to a USB memory stick) then you can buy a USB extension cable and place the fob closer.


Perhaps placing it next to the monitor would work best. If the receiver has a tendency to fall behind your desk, a small, clear piece of scotch tape will hold it down, and will be one hundred percent removable if you decide to move it later.



If your wireless keyboard or mouse have a desktop receiver, try moving it a little closer.

You may also need to press the "connect" buttons on the receiver and also underneath the keyboard and mouse.


If they have an on/off switch you should turn them on and off.

Hopefully this article will help you to fix your Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse slow, **** or lockup problems.


If not, check with the technical support and Frequently Asked Questions sections of your manufacturer's support website.


hope this helps

Moved my GATEWAY KR-0401 wireless keyboard & now won't work!


  1. Check and see if batteries are in keyboard and that they are still good and working.
  2. If the batteries are good and ready to go then make sure that the adapter for the wireless keyboard is plugged into the correct USB port in the back of your computer and that it's working.
  3. If none of the above works then what you'll need to do is go buy a wired keyboard and attach that to your computer and log into your account and find out what's going on with the wireless keyboard. Once you have figured out what is going on with your wireless keyboard then you can take the wired one back to the store and continue using the wireless keyboard. If I were you though I would keep the wired one around just in case.

The wireless keyboards & mice work on batteries, try replacing the batteries first, if that doesn't work you may try with an USB(or PS2) replacement keyboard/mouse.

Mouse works, but not keybord. Had to elace batteries on keyboard now it doesn't work..I am using 'On-Sceen Keyoard'.Please help.


Presumably you have a wireless keyboard? I would suggest buying the cheapest USB keyboard for now and then try to get the other keyboard working.
Are batteries OK, any lights from keyboard, is wireless receiver in computer working (presuambly yes if same one as the mouse - if so then suggests the problem is with the keyboard).
Try removing and replacing all batteries - try new batteries.

I spilled coffee over keyboard and now the keyboard is not working properly is there a way i can fix this i have left it for 24 hours and it seems worse


No, keyboards are too cheap to justify opening up a keyboard and attempting to clean it, especially if you drink your coffee with sugar, the sugar works at the etchings, and when you attempt to clean the traces, you wipe them away rendering the keyboard useless.

Logitech mx3200 keyboard doesn't work any more. The dynamic search & zoom (slider) at the left of the keyboard does work however. The mouse is ok. I already tried new batteries.


Sounds like a wireless keyboard, so pressing the connect button on the keyboard and receiver at near the same time should connect the keyboard again.
Good luck and let us know how it goes so we can get that keyboard up and running. If that doesn't help you can go to logiteck support site here: http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/support_downloads/&cl=us,en, locate you specific device and update the latest driver for it.
Good luck, and keep us posted.
