is your using usb mouse and keyboard, you may insert it at the usb ports at the back, if you attached it for the first time, just wait for it to be recognized by windows,takes about 3-5mins

Lost my set up directions...can't connect mouse or keybord...they only have usb ends.


Hi ebdaly...
Most all keyboards and mouse connections now are usb connected.
Just plug the usb from the keyboard or mouse into a usb port on the computer and you should be good to go.
The drivers for the keyboard and mouse are built in to your computer if you have XP/Vista/7,so they are "plug and play" items
If it does not work on your computer then you will have to have an adapter like the one show below for the mouse and keyboard, you can find these at Walmart,Staples,OfficeDepot,this one is from ebay.
Please take time to rate me

How do I setup my wireless mouse and keyboard


Need more information but normally you would hook up the infrared device or usb device to the laptop. Then you would make sure that the keyboard and mouse has new batteries in it. At that point windows should recognize the mouse and keyboard. You may have to push on the connect buttons on the keyboad or mouse to get the laptop to recognize them.
Other then that its not really hard. Just time consuming if it doesn't take right away. Most of the time you don't need software installed unless the manual tells you to install them because windows will recognize them.

I don't know how to hook my computer mouse and my key board up?


Since you didn't mention the keyboard or mouse connector type, i can't figure out what exactly mean, but if they are ps2 type connectors, then take a look at the picture below; and follow simple instructions..fc95c5b.jpg
Connect/plug in your mouse on the Green port with the corresponding connectors (pins) and connect/plug in your Keyboard on the Purpe port.
I hope this helps..
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

USB Keyboard and mouse wont work with PS2 KVM with adapter


Have you tried rebooting once it is connected? Not sure if it makes a difference, but I know you can not hook up PS2 peripherals without rebooting.

My ps/2 mouse and keyboard are not working togather when plughed in togather but individually ther work fine


It is possible the ports are going bad, But both at the same time is strange. I don ot know if you know that PS2 is not hot swapable, Which means that you need to completely shut down the system before pluging them in. USB, the system can be on. If you keep having problems i would switch to usb mouse and keyboard,,,Darren

Can't hook up mouse and keyboard


Okay, setting up the mouse and keyboard is very simple. The mouse should have a green end, and the keyboard has a purple end. They fit into the corresponding places in the back of the computer. Also both the mouse and the keyboard have flat sides. Try attaching them in the four different directions (e.g; up, down left, right). If that still doesn't work have them look at the wires to confirm that the wires are not bent, that could explain the problem, because the twisting could have caused bends in the PS2 Connector.

Newer monitor to older xp pc


If your monitors are displaying "no signal" they aren't receiving input from the video card. If your PC has two video outputs (onboard) try charging to the other output to see if it will come on. Also reseat your video card in its slot. Also, what can you see that lets you know the keyboard and mouse are not working?

I'm hooking up my Memorex wireless keyboard and mouse. I hooked up the two pieces coming off the wireless receptor to the computer and now I can't get the mouse and keyboard to work. Do I press the button...


There should be a connect button on both the receiver unit that is plugged into the usb port, and on each device (Mouse, and Keyboard) you will have to press all of these again to reconnect the devices to the computer.
