syncronize them it should work.
press and hold the blue button on the bottom of the mouse and then keyboard...

My mouse and keyboard occassionally fail....The problem is that a USB connection (internal within the computer) has failed and the only way to fix it is to uninstall the bad USB port using the control panel/device manager. The problem is that you have no way of communicating with the computer since the mouse and keyboard are dead. Fortunately I had a bluetooth mouse and keyboard connection on another computer which I was able to borrow. Plug in the bluetooth dongle and check that the temp mouse/keyboard now work when you start up the HP. Uninstall the failed USB device. Restart.
Replace the original HP mouse/keyboard. Everything works.
