Hp touchsmart 300


From the User Guide at... http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=4174137&

The wireless keyboard and mouse are pre-synchronized, for your convenience, to work with your

HP TouchSmart PC. The keyboard and mouse should work immediately after you pull the battery tabs to

activate the preinstalled batteries, and then turn on the mouse (A).

You may need to manually synchronize the wireless keyboard or mouse if they are not functioning.

To synchronize them:

Make sure the keyboard and mouse are next to the HP TouchSmart PC, within 30 cm (1 foot) and

away from interference from other devices.

Keyboard: Press the Connect button on the bottom of the keyboard (B) for five seconds. The blue

activity LED on the wireless receiver illuminates when the synchronization command has been received

and turns off when synchronization is complete.

Mouse: Press the Connect button on the bottom of the mouse (C) for five seconds. The blue activity

LED on the wireless receiver illuminates when the synchronization command has been received and

turns off when synchronization is complete.

If this does not work, remove and then re-insert the wireless keyboard and mouse receiver from the back of
the computer and then synchronize the keyboard and mouse again.

How to reset wireless keyboards and mice


A wireless system consists of a receiver plugged to the USB port of the computer, a mouse and a keyboard. The function of the receiver is to "listen" to the signals sent by keyboard and mouse. As there might be other wireless equipment operating within range of the receiver, ALL systems, independent of brand, have many different channels in which they can operate, without interfering with other devices. The mouse and the keyboard, separately, have to know which channel the receiver is working on, in order to transmit on that particular channel.
Most system failures (other than depleted batteries) can be attributed to the receiver " listening" to a different channel than the mouse/keyboards are transmitting on.
Resetting the system, to work on the same channel, may vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, but basically all work with a button on the receiver that changes / resets the operating channel, and within a short period of time, similar buttons on the back of mice and keyboards that must be activated in order to "learn" the new channel set by the receiver.

Gateway wireless keyboard detection


Insert the installation CD that came with your wireless keyboard set into your computer's CD-ROM drive.

Use the CD to install the drivers for the wireless peripherals.


Insert batteries into the keyboard .

Use a screwdriver to remove any screws that hold the battery bay covers closed.


Connect the wireless signal receiver to your computer.

Receivers for wireless keyboard and mouse sets usually use a USB connector.


Your computer will automatically detect the receiver.

Turn on your keyboard if the devices have power buttons.


Press the "Sync," "Connect" or "Pair" buttons on the keyboard , depending on your model.

If present, press the "Connect" button on the wireless signal receiver as well.

Your wireless keyboard set is now connected.


hope this helps

The microsoft wireless mouse stopped working after a power failure. I get a message that says the USB device is not there. But I cannot navigate my computer w/o the mouse


The Microsoft wireless mouse comes with a wireless receiver, right? Before you do anything, the first thing that you can try is to replace the batteries with fresh ones.

If same problem occur, try to connect the wireless receiver into different USB ports of the computer. Then check if your wireless receiver and mouse has a connect button. If it does have connect buttons, briefly press the connect button on the receiver, then hold down the connect button on the mouse for 5 seconds. Then release the connect buttons.

If you get the same problem, hold down both connect buttons (receiver and mouse) at the same time for 5 seconds.

Last, try to connect the wireless receiver into different computer. If you get the same problem, send the receiver and mouse to the manufacturer for repair.

Thank you and good luck!

The mouse or keyboard does not work at all
If your wireless mouse or keyboard is not working properly, check the following:
  1. The mouse is designed to enter a suspend mode after 20 minutes of inactivity. Try to reactivate the mouse by clicking the left mouse button.
  2. If the underside of the mouse has an on/off switch, make sure to set the switch to the "On" position.
  3. Restarting the computer may resolve the problem, at least temporarily, so that other troubleshooting steps can be applied.
  4. Make sure that the keyboard and the mouse are within 100 centimeters (39 inches) of the receiver. If the receiver is attached to a cord, position it so that it is on the same level surface.
  5. Verify that the batteries are correctly installed in the keyboard and mouse. If possible, use a fresh set of alkaline batteries.
  6. If the receiver is a USB receiver, unplug it, wait for five seconds, and then plug it back in. Wait about five more seconds and then test the mouse and keyboard again.
  7. Reset the keyboard and mouse connections :
Note: The following connection sequence must be completed within 60 seconds.
With the receiver plugged in, press and hold the Connect button on the receiver until the activity LED flashes.
Note: Some HP computers have receivers built into the front of the computer; such as TouchSmart 700 Series PCs and Digital Entertainment Centers. Look for a small Connect button built into the case. If you have a TouchSmart 500 or 800 Series PC, the receiver plugs into a USB port on the underside of the case and does not have a Connect button - skip this step.

Mouse works, but not keybord. Had to elace batteries on keyboard now it doesn't work..I am using 'On-Sceen Keyoard'.Please help.


Presumably you have a wireless keyboard? I would suggest buying the cheapest USB keyboard for now and then try to get the other keyboard working.
Are batteries OK, any lights from keyboard, is wireless receiver in computer working (presuambly yes if same one as the mouse - if so then suggests the problem is with the keyboard).
Try removing and replacing all batteries - try new batteries.

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.

I have a micro wireless keyboard, and I neeed a wireless mouse to match. Where can I buy one?


You could go to the place you bought the keyboard and see if they have a mouse too. If you want to use the same receiver though, the receiver (the part that plugs into the computer and communicates with the keyboard) you might consider purchasing a complete set, keyboard and mouse new. This has the advantage of using one USB connection on your computer. If you purchase a wireless mouse now and your receiver is not designed to support two devices, then you will use two USB connections.
