Why my Keyboard/Mouse is not working?
If your device stops responding, confirm that the device or USB receiver is working properly. The steps below will help to identify if the issue is related to the USB receiver: 1. Open Device Manager and make sure your product is listed. 2. If the device or USB receiver is plugged into a USB hub or extender, try plugging it into a port directly on the computer 3. Windows only — try a different USB port. If it makes a difference, try updating the motherboard USB chipset driver. 4. Try using the device on a different computer. 5. If it’s still not working on the second computer, check Device Manager to see if the device is recognized. 6. If your product is still not recognized, the fault is most likely related to the USB receiver rather than the keyboard or mouse.
My keyboards keys/ mice buttons are not working correctly. What is the reason for this?
• Clean the button/key with compressed air. • Verify the product or receiver is connected directly to the computer and not to a hub, extender, switch or something similar. • Unpair/repair or disconnect/reconnect hardware. • Upgrade firmware if available. • Windows only — try a different USB port. If it makes a difference, try updating the motherboard USB chipset driver. • Try on a different computer. Windows only — if it works on a different computer, then the issue might be related to a USB chipset driver. • Replace with new batteries (wireless product with dry batteries) *Pointing devices only: • If you’re not sure if the problem is a hardware or software issue, try switching the buttons in the settings (left click becomes right click and right click becomes left click). If the problem moves to the new button it is a software setting or application issue and hardware troubleshooting cannot resolve it. If the problem stays with the same button it is a hardware issue. • If a single-click always double-clicks, check the settings (Windows mouse settings) to verify if the button is set to Single Click is Double Click. NOTE: If buttons or keys respond incorrectly in a particular program, verify if the problem is specific to the software by testing in other programs.
My cursor is not working. What can I do?
Check whether you are using the mouse on any reflective, transparent or uneven surface, if yes, not to use the mouse on these operating environments. • try to replace with a new battery. • Check the setting to verify if the DPI is set at a proper value. • Check whether it is connection issue. • Try on a different computer. If your cursor does not move or the buttons or keys don’t work: 1. follow the syncronization method mentioned in the manual of the receiver you buy; 2. contact with local service center to get the syncroization method. .

If you have wired devices follow the next steps: 1. Plug the device into a different USB port on your computer. If possible, don't use a USB hub or other similar device. If using a different USB port works, try updating the motherboard USB chipset driver. 2. Windows only — Disable USB Selective Suspend: • Click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Options > Change Plan Settings > Change Advanced Power Settings > USB Settings > USB Selective Suspend Setting. • Change both settings to Disabled. 3. Update firmware if available. 4. Try testing the device on a different computer. If you have wireless devices follow the next steps: 1. Verify the product or receiver is connected directly to the computer and not to a hub, extender, switch or something similar. 2. Move the device closer to the USB receiver. If your receiver is in the back of your computer, it may help to relocate the receiver to a front port. In some cases, the receiver signal gets blocked by the computer case, causing a delay. 3. Keep other electrical wireless devices away from the USB receiver to avoid interference. 4. Unpair/repair or disconnect/reconnect hardware: 5. Update the firmware for your device if available. 6. Windows only — check if there are any Windows updates running in the background that may cause the delay. 7. Mac only — check if there are any background updates that may cause the delay. 8. Try on a different computer.
