Open the battery compartment on your mouse or keyboard and make sure the batteries are inserted correctly inside the battery compartment, and then see if it works. If it doesn’t, replace the batteries with new ones.  

Note: For devices with rechargeable batteries, use the USB cable that came with the mouse or keyboard to recharge them.
