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

Hi, Dell Studio 1535 cooler always starts, even if the system is not warm up. Plus mouse and keyboard work slowly. shut down computer, wait (2h.), but still the same. Checks the system load and temperature...


Hi,
Try running the diagnostics on the computer to check if all the hardware is working fine. The diagnostics would take atleast 2 hrs to complete but would do a through check for the same. I have come accross the same issue on the said laptop and we have ended up replacing the system fan for the same.

To run the diagontics
1. Shut down the system
2. Press and hold the FN key on the keyboard and press the power button to start the system
3. Follow the screen prompts to run the diagnostics.

Note and post back any error codes if any

Thanks for using fixya

Monitor and mouse shut off.....


Call Dell for support. Looks like something in motherboard detects something (like temperature) then shut down your system.
Probably only need cleaning up inside.

My laptop is goin really slow and i dont know why. i downloaded my favorite game world of warcarft and it was fine but now everthing on my laptop including world of warcarft is goin realy slow please help...


Did you install many more things after you downloaded the game and before the game had gotten slow?
Sometimes games take a tremendous amount of resources from the computer, and anything else that can be running in the background such as anti-virus software can really bog the system down. If you game crashes to the desktop, this can be a sign that other programs are running and taking up to much of your resources. If you game plays fine, and then slows down after a few hours, and only a reboot will speed it up, than this can be a lack of RAM. I would suggest that you start by turning down the frame rates, and details on the game and see if this helps. Generally, games have the options to do this from the main menu. If this doesn't work, I would suggest that you turn programs off that aren't needing to continually run on the computer.

Overheating and sporadic shutdown - does this follow screen freezes and fan stopping?


I would suggest you have the fans/heat sinks cleaned as soon as you can. it is most likely shutting down because of heat (thermal shutdown). on some laptops the fan doesn't come on till close to melt down (my inspiron laptop is great for that). If you are at uncomfortable with taking the bottom of the laptop off to clean out the dust and dirt from the fan take it to a shop and have it done.
you may want to invest in one of those laptop chillers... basically a stand with fans on it. they make usb ones that get there power from the usb connection. abit ruff on the battery if you are not using a/c but better then replacing the cpu.

Make sure everything in side your computer is in all of the way. Push down on all of the cards and the memory to make sure nothing came loose. Make sure all of the cables are securely fastened and give it another go to see if it powers up.
