That missing dongle can be found at codemicro.com as part number RG-0638 and the cost is high, $39.95 freight paid. You can also purchase

a Mouse/Dongle combo for about $5.00 more. Be sure to check the part number on you mouse if you want the same combo as you had.

Good luck. Mine died but, I refuse to pay $40 bucks for a $2 dollar item that HP should have in stock. Their part number is 5188-7334 but HP

does not stock it. After about 2 years they don't even know how to find one.

Thanks for your reply. It's probably more cost effective to buy the whole keyboard, mouse set than to buy the dongle, but I lucked out this time. While on  hold with HP parts, I fiddled around and found my mine in a hidden pocket on my pc bag. Whew!

I found them from  $12 to $30 for a freaking usb. Your better off just buy another keyboard Of I imagine that is the idea.

 Its sad to say but your best bet is to go to Walmart and buy a new keyboard. You'll save money.
