Specs: Windows Vista
I have a question I have a wireless keyboard and mouse, and now neither of them are responding. 1st the keyboard stopped responding them the mouse stopped working. I have changed the batteries and tried to reconnect it but neither 1 is working and the wireless piece that connects them both that piece the lights aren't even on. What's the problem and how do I fix it?

Try moving the part that acts a a receiver to a different usb port. I have to do this about every 3 months.

Don't know why though.

I changed the ports and the only thing that it did do was fix my mouse. Although my keyboard still is not responding. Do you have any other suggestions?

There may be a button on the receiver or Keyboard to re initiate the devices.

Yes there are these connecting buttons one ont the keyboard and one on the wireless piece. Which I actually tried that already but did not get a response. Do you have any other suggestions?

You havn't told what make and model, mine is Logitech and has a slider switch above the function keys that turns off the power to the keyboard to save the batteries, it's not easy to see in low light.
Maybe yours has something similar.

my keyboard is a hewlett packard. And I do not have a indicator light on my keyboard to let me know if the batteries are good or not but after it stopped working I put new ones in and pressed the connection buttons and it still was not working.

I can only assume that you mean that little connector. I see lights and some flashing so I 'd have to say yes.

Go into the Control Panel and delete it. Turn the computer off and reboot.
