SOURCE: Logitech wireless keyboard doesn't respond

I also had a non-responsive keyboard that worked for a couple of days after installing. I purchased the unit over a year ago due to a great price. Since it was most likely out of warrantee and new batteries did not help, I open the unit and found a cracked solder connection on the positive battery terminal. I re-soldered the connection and it now works great.

SOURCE: can i slow down my mouse cursor

Open the Control Panel. Select "Printers and other Hardware". Select "Mouse".

(Note: If you open Control Panel and it is in Classic View, just double-click "Mouse".)

Select the Pointer Options tab. (The exact tab name may differ.)

There should be a slider button to adjust the speed of the mouse. Click OK.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Dell Wireless Mouse - new batteries - red light flashing - mouse on screen will not move. Have re-booted several times to try and clear problem with no results. Mouse on screen frozen


There should be a wireless receiver to plug into your USB port. THis has an LED on it which will flash when it receives data from the mouse. If the LED is not flashing then it is not receiving. There may be a button on the mouse to reset or change the transmission channel. Try unplugging the USB receiver and plugging it into a different USB port.

Wireless keyboard and mouse not working, battery in receiver?


The receiver should not have a battery. It gets its power from the USB port. Try uninstalling both keyboard and mouse via (Control Panel...Device Manager) and reinstalling them. Sometimes the drivers get corrupted and reinstalling them will fix that. Also there are on/off switches on the mouse and maybe the keyboard. Check that someone hasn't turned them off to save batteries when not in use.

The 2 red lights on the right side of the mouse receiver are on.


Hi,

usually the receiver is powered via the connection to the pc. ( ps2 style sockets usually green and purple ) dependant upon make/model of wireless. i would suggest replacing the batterys. on the mouse. these do use more power than the keyboard. roughly 5 to 1 or more.
after replacing the batteries. ( 2 x AA Or 2 x AAA ) press the button on the bottom of the mouse, and should have a button on the reciever. to syncronise the pair together.

In regards to your question, you may have 2 lights on the receiver. 1 for transmit, and 1 for receive.

new batteries should solve this problem.

Thankyou for using Fixya.

Dell optical wireless mouse locking


If your mouse is "locking" the two most likely causes are either due to a battery issue or a connection issue. The first is unlikely since you're saying it started just after you replaced the battery, but you might want to try again if you have other new batteries around that you can use. Also you could try Re-Pairing (if you have the bluetooth wireless keyboard/mouse combo that dell offers) the keyboard and mouse after reboot. step by step Instructions for re-pairing or fixing a corrupted are should be available on the Dell support website and vary depending on the exact model you have.
