Turn the computer off. Find the reset button on the keyboard & the other on the mouse. Sometimes they list the button as "calibrate" or even "Sync". Some models require that you push both buttons at the same time and hold them down to reset them to working order. Others only have one button on the mouse or keyboard to reset the calibration.

Reseting the mouse and keyboard has nothing to do with the pc. You can reset them with commands from your computer.

After you push the reset buttons, turn your computer on and see if your keyboard and mouse are now available.

This should solve your problem.

You may need to reload the drivers for the mouse. Is it a wireless mouse? If not you can navigate with your arrows, enter, tab and backspace to get to where you need.

I cant get the mouse to connect to my laptop


Desktop or Laptop ?What type of mouse ??...
Enable a Mouse for a Laptop
Without the ability to drag and drop and point and click, a laptop computer is merely a desk ornament.
Most laptops are manufactured with a built-in mouse in the form of a touchpad.
If the touchpad fails or if you just prefer working with a mouse, it is easy to enable a mouse for use with your laptop.

Purchase a mouse that is compatible with your laptop.
You can find compatibility information on the manufacturer's website.
If the mouse is wireless, make sure that the USB receiver is included, or purchase it separately. The mouse will not function without the receiver.
Insert the batteries in the mouse if you are installing a wireless mouse.
The battery compartment is generally located on the bottom of the mouse.


Connect the USB mouse to the USB port on the computer.
If you are using a wireless mouse, connect the USB wireless receiver to the USB port.

Turn the computer off and then on again if you are enabling a standard mouse with a wire.
This will instruct the computer to run the "new hardware" wizard, which will walk you through the installation of the mouse, and your mouse will be enabled.

Turn the wireless mouse over, and locate a small indentation with a button.
You may need to use the tip of a pencil or pen to depress this button.
Simultaneously press the button on the mouse and the small button on the USB receiver.
This will initiate communication between the mouse and the receiver.
Hold the buttons down for about 5 to 10 seconds until the light on the mouse comes on.

Test the connection by moving the mouse.
If the cursor moves, you have successfully enabled the mouse.
If not, check that you have the batteries installed.
Try pressing the buttons independently of one another.
Press the button on the receiver until the light blinks and release it.
Press the button on the bottom of the mouse until the light on the mouse is lit.
This should enable your wireless mouse.

Wireless Mouse to Your Computer & Laptop
Connecting a wireless mouse to your computer is a great way to reduce clutter around your workplace. Also, it is an alternative to using your laptop's directional pad.
Wireless mice work just as well as wired mice for most computing needs.
The only detail that wireless mice lack compared to wired mice is the DPI (dots per inch) and the frequency rate, which is essential to the "fast twitch" movements in gaming.
However, most people do not need highly responsive mice; therefore, wireless mice are perfect for any other computing activity other than gaming.

Insert batteries into your mouse. If your mouse is rechargeable, charge it in the docking station provided with the mouse.
Buy a wireless adapter that works with your mouse.
If your laptop is enabled with wireless technology or Bluetooth, skip to the next step.
Install the drivers for your mouse.
Reboot the computer to apply the changes.
Power on the mouse and let the computer recognize the new hardware.
If you are using a mouse that requires software to run, enable the mouse in the software that is provided to you.

Laptop computers generally have built-in pointing devices such as touch pads that you can use to navigate the operating system on the go.
However, touch pads and pointing sticks are small and generally far from ergonomic.
At home, you might like to connect a full-sized mouse for greater comfort.
Computer mice connect in a variety of ways, and you should be able to find a mouse what works with whatever peripheral ports your laptop has.
As a general rule, any mouse that works with a desktop computer also works with a laptop.Laptops use the convenient touchpad and integrated scroll mouse that allow you to use just your finger to navigate Web pages, documents and open files and programs.
Just like all other hardware, the laptop's integrated touchpad and mouse can experience errors and problems that cause you to lose functionality for a length of time.
Whether the laptop's mouse is not working because of internal errors or conflicts with another device, several "tricks" can work to restore it.

Locate the function "Fn" button on your laptop in the lower left corner of the keyboard.
Look in the keyboard's upper row (the F1 through F12 buttons) for an icon of a touchpad or computer mouse.
This keyboard button acts as the toggle switch to enable and disable the built-in mouse and touchpad function.
Press and hold the "Fn" button together with the mouse icon button.
Look for the disable/enable symbol that briefly displays on your screen.
Slide your finger over the laptop's mouse and attempt to use it as normal.
Press the Windows keyboard key if using Windows 7, type "main.cpl" in the search box and press "Enter."
Press the left arrow key to navigate over to the "Device Settings" tab.
Press the tab key to reach the "Enable" button in this section.
Press "Enter" on your keyboard. Press the tab key to reach the "Disable internal pointing device" check box.
Press the space bar to remove the check mark.
Put your finger on the touchpad, and move the pointer down to the "Apply" button.
Click "Apply" to save the settings. Close the mouse "Properties" box.


Press the keyboard "Windows" logo key to open the "Start Menu."
Press the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate to the "Shut Down" or "Turn Off Computer" menu. Press the up or down arrow key to highlight "Restart."
Press "Enter" to restart your computer and attempt to use the laptop mouse as it should normally function.

Open the "Control Panel."
Go to the "Add and Remove" or "Uninstall" programs section.
Highlight any secondary mouse devices in the list that you have installed for your laptop, such as an external USB mouse.
Select the "Uninstall" option to remove any software and settings associated with this secondary mouse.
Restart your computer and attempt to use the built-in laptop mouse as normal.
Check to see if the mouse is working properly.

Press the keyboard's "Windows" button to open the "Start Menu."
Press the keyboard's arrow keys, "Enter" button and "Tab" to navigate to and open the "Control Panel."
Go to the "Hardware and Sound" section, and press "Enter." Navigate to "Device Manager," and press "Enter" to open it.
Find "Mice and other pointing devices from the list" and open its "Properties" dialog box.
Select the "Driver" tab and choose "Update Driver."
Allow Windows to search the Internet for drivers and to update them automatically.
Restart your computer after the drivers are updated, and use your mouse as normal.

My Kensington 72216 mouse makes selections automatically.


Have you installed the drivers for your mouse? Sounds like you need to install the drivers. I looked on there site and they don't have separate drivers for each mouse. I'm guessing you need to download the mouse works program and install it. Here is the link to the website to get that software. After you install that software for the operating system your working on, your mouse should work fine. If i helped please leave me a rating. If i didn't help, comment and ill try again.

Cordless mouse works only with the right click side and can't go


You may need to go ahead and remove the driver for the mouse and reinstall the driver.

You will first need to remove the program by going to "Add/Remove Programs". Once you have found the driver there, then do "uninstall". After the program uninstalls, remove the wireless dongle if one came with the mouse, restart the computer, then use the same disk that came with the mouse to reinstall the driver on the computer. During installation, make sure to re-insert the wireless dongle so that it can communicate with the mouse.

If that process is unsuccessful, then you may want to look into returning the mouse as it may have hardware malfunctions taking place which will require an expert to remove certain aspects of the mouse in order for it to function correctly. Without ruining your manufacturer or store warranty, I would highly recommend taking the mouse back at this phase to ensure you can get a replacement for the product without making the problem worst.
