Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have purchased a Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop 700 (Keyboard & mouse). I have plugged the wireless receiver in, and get a flashing green light when I press the button on the front. The green light goes off after about 30 seconds. The mouse has power & worked for 30 seconds when I furst plugged in, then stopped responding. I couldn't get the keyboard to work at all. I have pressed the connect buttons on both the mouse & the keyboard - nothing happens. I have Windows XP so it should be compatible. Help!!

When you say you pressed the connect buttons on both the keyboard and mouse, do you mean you pressed the connect button on the receiver, and then you pressed the connect buttons on the mouse and keyboard? If not, then that's what you have to do. The 30 seconds of blinking on the receiver is normal, as it gives you time to find and press the buttons on the mouse and keyboard.

I hope this helps, and good luck!

I have a Labtec multi media keyboard & mouse, MN Y-RAC66 & one MN Y-RB6.Neither have the "transmitter". Part no longer available from Labtec.


Most of these are brand specific. If the unit is bluetooth (I don't think this is the case) , you can buy a dongle, no problem. If not, you can try to find a used on for sale. You can buy a basic wireless keyboard and mouse new for under $30.

Keyboard & Mouse not inputting..Dell OptiPlex GX280.. OS, XP. Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3000 (keyboard/mouse) new.. Dell boots up and desktop appears, the cursor (arrow head) remains in middle of...


Check that batteries are charged and installed properly.--make sure driver disc is installed if applicable- check instructions as some wireless suites need you to push a small connect button to initialise them . Also try shifting the usb conector into another USB port if it is notm getting reconised.

Make sure the mouse is linking to the wireless receiver on you have plugged into the computer (there should be a reset button on the mouse to establish a new link).

I bought a Microsoft wireless key board and mouse Model 700. I have the keyboard working but the mouse won't work, what can I do?


Most wireless accessories have buttons so on them to sync one to the other. One on the mouse and one on the receiver.Try pressing these buttons at the same time.That should put you in business.

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.
