Renaming of mouse and wireless keyboard

I bought a used A1314 and Magic Mouse apple wireless keyboard to use with a Power Mac G5. Both are discoverable and paired and working very well but when I go into the preferences system and then select keyboard and mouse in the status area that opens both name boxes are empty and it does not show battery levels. I am not able to rename either if I go to Bluetooth and open it. This isn't really a problem because they work very well, it's just I want to name them. Someone at - it arrived through this to know how to fix?

Thank you


Open BlueTooth preferences, select the input of the unit, then CTRL - or RIGHT click and select Rename from the context menu.

  • ARC mouse and wireless keyboard to stopped working after update

    On Tuesday, my keyboard Microsoft's ARC mouse and wireless are busy to my desktop HP running Windows 7 Ultimate.  Since then, there has been a number of updates installed and the ARC keyboard and mouse are no longer works.  I got out my old clumsy Laser Keyboard 6000 and plugged in and it does not work this is how I write this.  But enter the Device Manager or the installed Microsoft keyboard application does not show the ARC keyboard or a mouse as even installed.  I plan to do a system restore, but I probably need security updates installed on 4/14.  Ideas?


    Thanks for the suggestions.  I would have thought than to simply unplug it disconnected and reconnected the cause would detect automatic to reinstall drivers, as suggested by @cookie7746 - but it was not detecting the keyboard and the mouse at all, even at the start of the system when only the BIOS is running.  Who told me I could have a hardware issue not only a software driver problem.  I followed him there down to a faulty USB Extender.  Not related to the software, but a hardware problem.  When I replaced the USB Extender that the connections for the mouse and keyboard of the CRA is well connected, everything works.

    So suggestion for those who encounter it: try restarting and during switching on, press the function keys that you use to enter the BIOS settings screen - it is usually CTRL/A or F10 or something - it will usually tell you in a message is displayed briefly that you start.  If it works, you know that you have a good physical connection and the problem is a Windows driver issue.  If this does not work, the problem is not with Windows - it's a hardware connection problem that can be caused by low batteries or dead in the camera (I had this happen to me) or something with USB connections.  Best suggestion at this point is to start eliminating things (like me) by unplugging it the USB Extender, I had these connected directly to USB ports on the computer.  With this process of elimination, you should be able to narrow down the problem.  Good luck!

  • Pavilion 550-122nd: mouse and wireless keyboard do not work before Windows starts (10)

    The wireless keyboard and mouse (that came with the computer) do not work until Windows is started.

    I want to make a (ghost) image of my hard drive using the boot CD Norton ghost 15.0 (but it also applies to other bootable devices).

    When the CD boots and the program starts I have to click a button (OK / accept) to continue. At this point the wireless keyboard and mouse are not active jet. This is why I can't continue.

    Use a USB keyboard gives the same result (also not active at this point).

    Is there a solution / work around for this?

    Thank you.

    On the pilots seems plausible. Especially because on my laptop (older) with Windows 10 CD bootable (like Norton Ghost) don't Duke keyboard and mouse.

    I'll have a look at the new version of the BIOS and start looking for new tools that will accept my keyboard (and mouse).

    Thank you.

  • USB mouse and wireless keyboard/touchpad cursor, lags and freezes

    Original title: cursor lag / freeze

    a system slow, very slow or cannot manage not to load the devices & printers, his noisy hard drive, excessive heat, mouse and keyboard lag / freeze

    constantly fight my wireless mouse and it's not the mouse itself. Tried to open my DEVICES & PRINTERS TO SEE what WAS PRINTING, and after waiting forever to make it load, it is still impossible to open? > NOTE: for the moment, my main concern is to understand what is happening with the mouse and keyboard on board pointer device


    Help, please! Any help at all will be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you very much!



    Your main concern maybe the mouse, but I'd be worried that all of the computer is about to fail. The hard disk should not make any noise and should not be excessive heat, or the slow loading of applications. Frankly, this looks like a pending hard drive failure.

    Not exactly the answer you wanted, but its my best advice. Back up your data and programs and seek to replace your hard drive. At the very least, I would have the computer checked out by a good reputation for service Tech. Sorry, but this seems to be hardware problems and not software problems, we are dealing with here.

    Let me know if this helps you.

    Kind regards

  • Firefox continues to update. However, when I approve it, it keeps telling me its incompatible with mouse and wireless keyboard.

    I have a Logitech K520. I think that Firefox wants to upgrade to version 12.

    Due to the fact that I have not updated, my browser keeps freezing.

  • I deleted the driver for the mouse and the mouse and the keyboard has stopped working.

    I had installed an updated driver mouse and mouse keep locking up. The Windows troubleshooting information indicates that I have to erase the disc from the mouse, and then reinstall the new mouse driver. When I deleted the mouse driver, the mouse and the keyboard no longer works.

    The computer is running Windows XP with Service Pack 3.

    The computer is one that I built several years ago.

    I tried the things:

    1. I tried the ALT, left SHIFT + Number Lock which is indicated as mouse keyboard operation who has worked in the past.

    Well it does not either from the keyboard is dead.

    2. I tried PS2 Mouse and a keyboard.

    3. I tried a keyboard and a USB mouse. The system shows new hardware found and he wonder then click NEXT to load the driver. No mouse, no keyboard, so no click.

    4. I can't get into the bios, because I can't hit keys to vector in the bios during startup.

    5. I tried to load the Windows XP disk, but the startup routine ask me to hit any key to boot from the CD.

    I have no mouse or keyboard control and therefore cannot respond to any action required by the system.

    Does anyone know a way to solve this problem?

    Solution of my wife - buy a new computer.

    Have a better solution for this problem?

    Thank you


    Always try a PS/2 keyboard.  Maybe your PC is not able to access the BIOS, because the keyboard is USB.

  • OEM usb mouse and usb keyboard Freeze, disconnect automatically w/eject Sound

    I have a 2.5 year old Dell XPS 8300 Windows 7 PC. Mouse usb from the factory and start of keyboard to eject and re - insert (Windows systems "thumb-thump" sounds) and its own without any intervention on my part. Initially it just, just momentarily freezes for a second, but it could be anywhere from 20 minutes to several hours and the same thing happens to 3 or 4 times, and finally and at the same time, the mouse and keyboard freeze. The "cursor" or "pointer" on the screen is totally inadmissible, and seizure keyboard is inadmissible. CTRL + Alt + Delete does not work yet.

    A few points:

    1 there is no drivers for the wired mouse usb and a keyboard wired usb on page download Dell and Driver for XPS 8700.

    2 when I arrived to the Device Manager, it says device keyboard HID and HID - compatible mouse.

    3. There is no drivers to roll back to, and if I update driver for each device, windows tells me I use the latest version of the driver.

    4. I tried a clean install of Windows 7 and it does not solve the problem. (Exaggeration, I know. "I have a lot of time).

    5. I'm tired a clean install of Windows 8.1 and it does not solve the problem. (Again, I know, exaggerated, but I was curious).

    6. in other words, I have exactly the same problem on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

    7. I tried to use all the different USB ports on my PC and the same problem persists. I don't think that it's a problem of USB hardware in any case, given that the freezing of the mouse and the keyboard are occurring simultaneously, and each device has its on usb port.

    8. this problem is new in the last month. Never had anything like this in the last 2.5 years.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi JJ,

    Thank you for your update. Much appreciated!

    Basically, for Windows 8.1, you will need to update the drivers more recent. So, you need to update the drivers for the chipset from the Dell Web site, and if it does not, you may need to contact the manufacturer for updated versions. Also. Please check in the Device Manager and uninstall the drivers of HID devices (under keyboard) and changes in the Update window to do not to install the updated driver. After uninstalling, restart the computer and then install the drivers for the devices and drivers chipset on the manufacturer's Web site. Check if the problem persists.

    Please post back your results for assistance.

  • Captivate 4 - use the mouse and the keyboard at the same time.

    Hello, good people.

    There is a way, in the C4, to use the mouse and the keyboard at the same time?

    An example, in the simulation software:

    "Hold down the SHIFT key and click with the mouse in the other object to select too..." »

    Your question is very clear to me, because I've been struggling with these problems not long there. You want to be the simulation as real as possible. But try to imagine how the user will see this simulation. You can ask him to hold the SHIFT key and select the last item in the range to select, but what makes Captivate advance to the next slide (where all the items are selected), it's really the 'click' himself. So in this case I should not worry the SHIFT but just create a click on this last point. And then you hope it will be in fact the SHIFT key, which will be the case for most users, and perhaps a few exceptions don't will be not pressed the SHIFT key and continue anyway. I hope you understand a bit what I just tried to explain. Is it really important for learning effect that you check the CHANGE itself?

  • T430s is not awaken from its slumber with mouse and USB keyboard Logitech wireless


    My T430s is hooked up with a monitor and a keyboard/mouse (Logitech LX710) wireless.

    I put the laptop itself under my desk since I did not take it with me that often.

    Now, when I hit the sleep button on my keyboard, the computer goes to sleep, as expected.

    -There is no way (it seems) that I am able to wake up.

    I am running Windows 7 (x 64).

    I tried different USB ports (to make sure I use a motor) for Logitech wireless USB adapter.

    In the BIOS Setup, I checked to see if the USB ports can wake the computer from sleep mode.

    In the devices tab Manager keyboard (and mouse), power management, I enabled "allow this device to wake the computer". I did the same thing for the "Human Interface devices".

    "Update driver software" for the keyboard and the mouse says I have the latest drivers to install.

    In power controls of Lenovo, under Advanced settings, USB settings, I tried the USB selective suspend allowed many people with reduced mobility. They are disabled for the moment. Under global settings of power, I enabled 'always on USB"and"even when the computer is turned off.

    Then... I'm slowly running out of options. So for now, I can leave the computer at any time (it's what I do, with an occasional reboot - that seems not so respectful), or I can crawl under my desk in the morning, take the laptop on the little stool that I put there, make attention to diet, USB and cables monitor and external hard drives, open the laptop , press the power button, close it again and carefully put it back. What is bulky.

    So... what someone has ideas on how to fix this and leave my wireless keyboard to wake the portable computer?

    (Oh.. and of course buy a wired keyboard is an option, but not one I prefer...)

    I only have the mouse, but I have a T430s and a Microsoft wireless mouse to wake it. I always use the blue (USB3) port on the left side for all functions related to the startup, because I learned that the always active port (on the back) is started later in the process of turning the power on. Use the right-click button to wake it up, which is the function that was originally defined as one to this end, even though I believe that this movement of the mouse as she wakes up on a wired mouse.
