After Pressing the Power On button... Hold the F12 key or on some models it is the Delete Key.. to get you to Bios Setup Utility..
Look there in Advanced Settings or Similar to See if your Keyboard And Mouse show up..
Option 2: The Ribbon cables that connect your Mouse and Keyboard are Located Underneath the Keyboard.. Remove the Keyboard and check to see that the ribbon cables are Secure in the ports..
Changing the CMOS battery is probably not going to fix your problem.. IF your CMOS battery was bad, you would be experiencing The System Time Changing .. your Clock would Show a Different Time Year and Date...... Pulling the CMOS battery for 30 seconds or so then resetting it might Reset it, This resets the BIOS and Resets Any Connected Hardware.... On Some Laptops Doing this Is not enough, You will also need to short the J1 Jumper pin...
and Some other Laptops have an affixed CMOS battery that cannot be removed unless Unplugged OR unsoldered From the Mainboard...


Hope this info helps..

It is likely the keyboard or mouse is putting out erroneous data and windows is then ignoring the ports,
try disconnecting the mouse pad or the keyboard and run with only one connected at a time if re-seating them has no effect.

there is sometimes a combo of software that may also effect the keyboard mouse input.
click on run / type msconfig
uncheck load startup group items.
click ok,
restart , check don't show this again.
and test system.

Hi, Ausus Laptop Gaming. Use to use Logitech wirelewss keyboard and mouse over 3 years no issue. Just today only the mouse stop working, change battery, restart comp., not even the laptop mousepad...


Make sure your mouse and keyboard are close to the receiver (the thing you plug into a usb port). Also make sure you plug the receiver into another usb port because maybe some of those ports are incompatible with the receiver or some ports may be failing. Last, make sure you install the driver (program that came on the cd for your equipment) on the computer.

Plz help me i want connect wire less keybroad and mouse thnksvjtawale2gmail.com


There are 4 possible ways in my awareness...
Method 1: Resynchronize your device with the receiver To resynchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, follow these steps. Note When you synchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, put the device near the receiver and put any other wireless keyboards and mouse at least 6 feet away.
  1. Press the button on the receiver, and then verify that the light on the receiver starts to blink.

    Note Some newer Microsoft devices are permanently bound to their receiver and cannot be reset. If your device does not have a button, skip to Method 2.
  2. If a dialog box appears on the screen in several seconds, follow the instructions that appear on the screen. Otherwise, go to the next step.
  3. Press and release the Connect Channel button on the bottom of the mouse or the keyboard.
  4. Check the green light on the receiver. A steady green light means the synchronization was successful. If the problem persists, try steps 1 through 4 again.
  5. For the Wireless Notebook mouse: This issue can occur if the micro-switch on the bottom of the mouse is not released. Use a pin or a pen to try to release the button if it is depressed.
The following example shows the buttons to push to synchronize a wireless hardware device:

Receiver Bottom of the mouse: The connect channel button Different kind of receiver Collapse this imageExpand this image 838398_receiver.jpg Collapse this imageExpand this image 838398_mouse_bottom.jpg Collapse this imageExpand this image 838398_portable_receiver.jpg Method 2: Try different portsTo determine whether the problem is related to the ports on the computer, use only the two cables that are included with the wireless desktop receiver, or the single cable that is included with a mouse. USB keyboard and USB mouseIf the USB cable is currently connected to a USB hub, disconnect the device from the hub, and then connect it to a USB port on the computer. If your device is already connected to a USB port on the computer, try to connect the device to a different USB port if one is available.

Note Only one USB connection to the computer is required, even if your device has two USB plugs. If the problem persists, disconnect other USB devices and connect only the USB plug from the receiver to a USB port on the computer. PS/2 devices Warning If you have to change a PS/2 connection, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. Do not plug a PS/2 device into the PS/2 port while the computer is running.If your devices are connected to PS/2 ports on the computer, verify that you have the following configurations:
  • Verify that the USB plug for your mouse is connected to the green USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the mouse PS/2 port on the computer. The mouse PS/2 port on the computer may also be green. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the mouse PS/2 port, see the documentation that was included with the computer.
  • Verify that the USB plug for the keyboard is connected to the purple USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the keyboard PS/2 port on the computer. The keyboard PS/2 port on the computer may also be purple. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the keyboard PS/2 port, see the documentation that was included with the computer.
If you have to change your configuration, shut down the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. If your mouse or keyboard has both USB and PS/2 connections, try using the other connection. PS/2 keyboard and USB mouseIf you are using a wireless mouse with a USB connector and a PS/2 keyboard, verify that the USB mouse is plugged in a USB port on the computer and that the purple keyboard PS/2 plug is connected to the purple PS/2 port on the computer. If you have to change the PS/2 connection, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. Method 3: Reinsert the batteries or install fresh batteriesBoth the wireless keyboard and the wireless mouse rely on AA alkaline batteries for power. Remove the batteries, and then insert them again. If the problem persists, install a fresh set of batteries in the device that you are having problems with. Method 4: Check for interferenceItems such as wireless routers, radios, cell phones, desktop fans, fluorescent lights, and large metal objects like computer cases and metal furniture may interfere with the signal of the keyboard. Try to keep such items away from the keyboard, and check the behavior of the keyboard.

Do not put the mouse or the receiver near any electrical devices, especially transmitters such as cordless or cellular telephones or other wireless mouse devices or receivers. A distance of at least 8 to 12 inches is recommended. Do not put the mouse or the receiver on metallic surfaces or objects, especially long metallic rails or cables. We recommend that you keep the mouse and the keyboard a minimum of 3 feet from metallic objects.

How to unlock the key pad on a dell latitude D600 laptop


Hi. Please do troubleshooting steps below:

1. Check to be sure your "Number Lock" or "Function Lock" keys aren't lit. These can lock out certain parts of your keyboard. If either of these is lit, press them to unlock the locked portion of your keyboard. These can be found at the top right on a laptop and between the number pad and main keys on a desktop keyboard.

2. Save all open programs using your mouse. Use your mouse to restart your computer. This will only work if your computer isn't frozen. If your mouse doesn't move, press the power button on your Dell until the computer turns off. Press it again to restart. If the issue was lack of memory or a locked program, this will unlock your keyboard. Continue to Step 3 if the keyboard is still locked.

3. Shut down your computer using your mouse or power button. Don't restart. Unplug your Dell.

4. Remove the battery if you're using a laptop by turning the laptop over and sliding the battery release latch. Slide the battery out and replace after one minute.

Have a good one!
