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.

My optical mouse KU916AA isnt connecting to the USB receiver. I have fresh batteries in it, but im not sure what button to push.


Hi,

Go to this Microsoft article and read through: Microsoft kb838398

The steps here includes all troubleshooting you can use for response failures in wireless keyboard and mouse.

If the steps did not resolve your issue, try unplugging the receiver first and reboot the computer. Plug back the receiver and reboot again. This is to refresh the cmos of your wireless keyboard and mouse settings.

If all of these fails, your mouse is deemed defective.

Hope this works for you.

LOGITECH MX 3200 CORDLESS MOUSE & KEYBOARD MOUSE IS NOT WORKING BATTERS NEW, LIGHT IS ON BUT NOTHING WORKS KEYBOARD IS WORKING FINE HOW DO I BUY A NEW MOUSE TO WORK WITH MY KEYBOARD?. M/N:Y-RAV80 ...


There are several different methods in resolving this issue. Before you perform these methods, make sure that the battery of your cordless mouse is fresh. Then, try this first method..
Method 1: Resynchronize your device with the receiver loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); 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

Method 2: Install the latest software loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Download and install the latest Microsoft IntelliPoint and/or IntelliType software. For more information, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category

I hope these works for you. Should you need the other methods, kindly reply for follow up. Good Luck!

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!


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

    The keyboard does not work at all, the mouse works fine


    Did you try restarting your computer to see if it re installs it? Also there could be a driver issue, or maybe the keyboard died.
    Maybe go to Dell website for driver check or any upgrades.
    Hope it helps a little.

    The ps2 ports for both keyboard and mouse do not work. i got around that by hooking both up with a usb connector. BUT when the computer is on with no mouse activity for a while, the mouse ''dies.'' Then...


    HI,
    Go into the BIOS utility and set the BIOS to defaults, hit F10, save the changes and exit the BIOS, the computer will restart, see if that helps.

    To get into the BIOS hit the Esc or Del key when the computers just starting up.


    Good luck.
