Default wireless keyboard and mouse

hi i have a wireless keyboard and mouse combo, and recently the keyboard wasnt working while the mouse was, so i fiddled and now the keyboard works and not the mouse. the thing that dosnt work dosnt even make the reciever flash (it normmly does when does when anything is touched)

any ideas!!! they are both on different channels so there shouldnt be any conflicts there.

p.s they always used to work in the past!!


thanks alot alex

Batteries? Plug in? Re-install drivers? Try them

I have a wireless mouse. It sometime gets screwed up when I either take it out of the mouse slot or when the batteries are low. I'm guessing you haven't tried resetting your mouse? If you mouse is like mine.... the little round wireless device (the thing you plug into the computer) should have a button on the top you can push and it will blink until it is syncronized with the mouse. Then turn your mouse upside down. There should be a small round button somewhere underneath of it. Press that button firmly with a pencil or whatever object that will go in there. Make sure the round wireless device is blinking while you do this. After you press the button on the mouse, the small round device's blinking should stop and your mouse should be ready to be used.

Does the mouse even show any signs of life?

There are certain models that use different channels, too. Make sure everything is on the same channel or it won't work.

I doubt the I.R on the mouse has had it, if the keyboard can work and the mouse doesn't, and then you can switch back.

There must be some sort of conflict going on

Ever notice that stupid warning that says something like this: This device may not cause harmful interfereance and this device must accept any interference recieved including interference that may cause undesired operation.

Somthing is conflicting between your mouse and your keyboard. Do you have any other wireless devices? At my friends work they use wireless equipment and if you take a wireless mouse to another computer that has the same device you can control the PC with the mouse you have instead of the mouse that is supposed to be for it. LOL... I remember the story of when they first got the equipment. Everything went nuts because all the mouse/keyboards where in a 30 ft radius and people could control eachothers computers.

Default Important warning

It's in the manual by Logitec
Don't put the receiver near the pws or monitor.It's very tempting to put in on top of the case near the pws.
Use ps2 mouse connection option.New alkaline batteries require a reset not drivers.
