Pressing any button of the Bluetooth® mouse will stop the functioning of the keyboard. The simple method to resolve it is to wait for a little time and the keyboard will start to work again.
Mouse stops working
The Dell series Bluetooth® mouse can also have the same problem as with the Dell series Bluetooth® keyboard. It might stop working after a long time of work. If you press any key in the keyboard, then the mouse might stop working. Leaving the mouse free for some time and trying again can resolve the issues.
Users can face connectivity issues with keyboard and mouse. This can happen because the distance between the computer and the Bluetooth keyboard and mouse might be longer than the recommended one. This will create problems and hence distance between them need to be checked.
After you have installed the Dell series Bluetooth® keyboard as well as mouse, you will still not be able to use them. It might be because you have not installed the Bluetooth driver properly or can be caused because of certain compatibility issues. You need to check if the Bluetooth adapter is installed properly or not. If not, you need to plug-in the Bluetooth properly.
