    Are the batteries in your nouse still good? When plugged in, does the mouse appear in your hardware list in the preferences section in your settings?

Try another wireless MAC mouse to check to see if it has failed. If the new one does not work, then the wireless receiver in the computer is not responding and will need service.

I am assuming that you checked to see that the mouse set-up is enabled.

Mouse and keyboard will not work


Does your imac have the proper bluetooth? If this is a new issue with existing equipment open the bluetooth menu and find devices. You may need a wired mouse to get the proper fix set.

Imac screen moves around with cursor


Is your screen image also magnified?
It sounds like you accidentally zoomed the screen, which you can do by holding down the control key at the same time you are rolling the wheel on the mouse. When you do that, the screen will follow your mouse so that you can access portions of the screen that have "zoomed off."
Hold down the control key and roll the mouse wheel until you have zoomed all the way back in. Alternatively, visit System Preferences / Universal Access and modify the Zoom options to suit yourself.

IMac G4 completely dead!


Well if a new power supply and battery and board reset didnt work you have hit all the stuff it might be other than the board itself.

Best way to retrive your data is get a external enclusure put in the hard drive and plug it into the new Imac.

I have found sometime people have bent or unplugged some ribbon cords in the Imac and they are finicky after that but since yours just happened I am not sure.

Hope this helps. Sorry your Mac isnt playing nice.

No output from Keyboard


Hello, Please reboot the computer in "safe mode" holding the shift key at startup. This will deactivate temporarily your extensions. If the keyboard works in safe mode, then go to the apple menu, system preferences, and accounts. Add a new account, reboot and log into your new account. If it still works, then that means that you have a corrupted preference Best regards

IMac bluetooth mouse won't move cursor


Did you seperately setup the mouse? Even if you have, go into the Bluetooth preferences under System Preferences. Select the mouse & delete it. Setup a "New Bluetooth Device" and select "Mouse." Be sure to press the Reset button for 2-3 seconds to get the mouse into "Discoverable" mode. Your Mac will then setup the mouse automatically.
If this does not work, the Bluetooth chip in the mouse may be defective.

Keyboard and Mouse don't work anymore


Hi, Sorry you are having problems,
Well Marcelo, the first thing to do in a situation like this is to restart your Mac or even better, shut down and restart. So, if you have done this, and still the keyboard and mouse don't respond, and, as you have mentioned, you have tried the other USB ports on the back of the Mac, it sounds like somehow, unexpectedly, your iMac motherboard got a shock of some kind and it killed the USB controller....
Last thing to try is to unplug the iMac completely of everything and let it sit for 10 minutes and then plug just the keyboard and mouse back in and try to see if that does the trick..
Otherwise, Apple will cover this if it is still under warranty.
Good Luck.
