How To Connect Computer Devices?

Connect your PC to a wireless mouse and keyboard.

It's simple to set up a wireless keyboard and mouse. It should only take approximately 10 minutes, but it could take a little longer if you're unfamiliar with basic computer technology.

The procedures below are basic, but the particular actions you need to do will vary based on the Connect Computer Devices type of keyboard/mouse you're using.

01

Equipment should be unpacked

Unpacking all of the equipment from the box is the first step in the installation process. Keep the UPC from the box if you bought it as part of a rebate programme.

Wireless keyboard, wireless mouse, wireless receiver(s), batteries (if not, you may have to supply these), software (typically on a CD), and manufacturer instructions are all likely to be included in your product box.

If you can't find what you're looking for, contact the merchant where you bought it or the manufacturer. Different items have different criteria, so if you have them, read them carefully.

02

Set up the Mouse and Keyboard

Because wireless keyboards and mice do not receive electricity from the computer like conventional ones, they require batteries.

Remove the battery compartment covers by turning the keyboard and mouse over. Replace the batteries in the correct order (match the + on the battery to the + on the battery, and vice versa).

Place the keyboard and mouse on your desk in a convenient location. When positioning your new equipment, keep optimum ergonomics in mind. Making the right decision now will help you avoid future carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis.

03

Place the Wireless Receiver in the Right Place

The wireless receiver is the part of your computer that connects to it physically and receives wireless signals from your keyboard and mouse, allowing it to communicate with the rest of your system. While particular specifications differ from one brand to the next, there are two things to keep in mind when deciding where to place the receiver:

Keep the receiver at least 8 inches (20 cm) away from sources of interference, such as the computer monitor and casing, as well as other devices that could produce interference, such as fans, fluorescent lights, metal filing cabinets, and so on.

The receiver should be placed between 8 inches (20 cm) and 6 feet (1.8 m) away from the keyboard and mouse. (Many receivers are little more than USB dongles.) They simply plug into a USB port. With these, don't be concerned about interference or distance.)

04

Install the Program

Almost all new gear comes with software that must be installed. This programme comprises drivers that instruct the computer's operating system on how to interact with the new hardware.

The software that comes with wireless keyboards and mouse varies greatly between manufacturers, so read the instructions that came with your purchase for more information.

In general, though, all software installation is rather simple:

Place the disc in the optical drive. The installation programme should run on its own. You may need to download software from the manufacturer's website depending on your setup.

Read the directions on the screen. If you're unclear how to answer any questions during the setup process, accepting the default options is a safe bet.

05

Finally, power on your computer and insert the USB connector at the receiver's end into a free USB port on the back (or front, if necessary) of your computer casing. Your computer will begin configuring the hardware after you plug in the receiver. You'll probably notice a notification on the screen that says something like "Your new hardware is now ready to use" when the configuration is finished.

06

Take a look at the new keyboard and mouse.

Open some programmes and type some text to test the keyboard and mouse. Testing each key to ensure there are no issues is a smart idea.

Check for interference and that the device is within range of the receiver if the keyboard or mouse won't work. Also, look over any troubleshooting information that came with your manufacturer's instructions.

If the old keyboard and mouse are still connected to the computer, disconnect them.

Check with your local electronics store for recycling information if you plan to dispose of your old equipment. If your keyboard or mouse is Dell-branded, we recommend sending it back to them for free recycling (yes, Dell covers the postage).
