    Are you talking about a computer? I have been working on computers since 1985 and I have never seen a keyboard with a battery.
    Some motherboards have a keyboard fuse . It looks like a resistor and is soldered on.

If your keyboard is "wireless", it would have batteries under a removable slot on the underside of board. You also may just need to press the reset button on the bottom of the board or on the reciever hooked to your tower. Make sure your connections are good and/or try a different USB port. You can check to see it's operation by clicking on "start". Then click on "control panel". Find and right click on "device manager". Click on the box with + next to "keyboards". Do you see a warning, ?, !, or a yellow triangle? Click on that and follow proceedure. Right click on your device and in the list you should see "disable". If you see "enable" click on that and exit. Right click on it again, then click on "properties" tab. You should see "this device working properly".

GE Wireless keyboard #98615 instructions say to turn the ON button in the bottom of my keyboard. There is no on/off button


As far as I know there is no ON button on the GE 98615 Wireless Thin-Profile Keyboard. Unless is the ON configuration for the NumPad which you will find it in the BIOS.

I Hope this might help you with your GE 98615 Wireless Thin-Profile Keyboard.

1.- Plug the USB receiver into an available USB port of your PC, no required batteries.
2.- Insert the batteries with correct orientation into the battery compartment of the keyboard

Please NOTE:

(a) This wireless keyboard provides factory preset connection channels and enables Plug and Play function. (b) This keyboard does not require changing connection ID as there is no ID button on the receiver. (c) When this wireless set encounters radio interference, keyboard will automatically change to a clean channel respectively. (d) Manually changing connection ID is not necessary.

The keyboard is not working. Nothing comes out


I don't know your level of technical experience, so some of these may seem obvious. These may not be in the best order, I've added them as I thought of them.
1) check the batteries in the keyboard and mouse. They can go through batteries in a big hurry sometimes. If just changed double check polarity.
2) check the connection(s) for the receiver. If you have pets check for chewed wires.
3) have you added any new USB devices. They may be using to much power from your USB ports
4) have you added any other wireless devices, includes non-computer devices.
5) have you tried resetting the keyboard and receiver signal.
6) check USB power output. You can plug in a different USB device and see if it works.
7) does your receiver require batteries (very rare).
8) you may need to reinstall your keyboard drivers and software.
Most wireless keyboards operate in the 400 Mhz range so do most wireless networks and many phones, these can all interfer with your signal.

I have a logitech which used to work with window vista home premium 64 bits version. Today it is not connecting although i replaced the batteries and the light in the back of the mouse is dim and sometimes...


THE MFG MAY HAVE A CERTAIN BATTERY REQUIRMENT, NEED TO GO LINE AND LOOK UP THAT INFORMATION, DEPENDING ON THE MFG AND THE BATTERY COMPANY THEY WANT YOU TO USE IF YOU DONT USE THERE BATTERY REQUEST THAN YOU WILL END UP BUYING A NEW KEYBOARD OR MOUSE WHEN THE BATTERIES RUN LOW.

LOOK FOR A LITTLE PIN HOLE ON THE BOTTUM OF THE MOUSE ALSO EVERY TIME YOU CHANGE THE BATTERY YOU LOOSE THE FREQUENCE THE MOUSE USES, SO DEPRESS THE BUTTON UNTIL THE COMPUTER SAYS IT HAS FOUND A NEW PIECE OF HARDWARE, THAN THE MOUSE SHOULD WORK FINE.

GO ON LINE AND SEE IF THERE ARE ANY NEW UPDATE FOR THE MOUSE

Wireless keyboard is blinking a blue light but nothing else is working


Normally Dell keyboard require a wireless uSB plug in that connects to your computer and there is usually a small button on both the keyboard and the end of the connector. Press them both. Normally preplacing batteries causes the connection to be disrupted.
