    External keyboard/mouse not working on Macbook with OS X Lion

    I don't think I need additional drivers to be installed on my macbook in order to use an external keyboard/mouse, the reason for this attempt is am having issues with the shift key on my keyboard and also issues with trackpad so am trying to manage with external keyboard and mouse but no success.

    Dear Friend...

    I can understand the problem in your MacBook device. The life of the trackpad is not so long and after a particular point of time, you need to replace your trackpad.
    Regarding this, there are so many solutions but as you want to replace both the things with external keyboard and mouse for MacBook, so you can fix it.

    If your external device are not working it means the mouse and keyboard might have some compatibility issue because MacBook is an Apple product and for this, you must buy external keyboard and mouse of Apple as well.




    These are the compatible device for MacBook which are manufactured by Apple. If you connect both the device, you will not face any problem and they also connect easily without any driver.

    Rest of the details about these products are available on this web:-

    Thank you...

    Hello Friend

    1.Verify that your configuration is compatible with HP auto wireless connect.

    2.Your computer must be running windows vista.

    3.Your computer is connected to an 802.11 wireless router.

    4.Your computer's OS is in control of the wireless adapter.

    5.Your computer uses a wireless connection to your network and the operation system.

    6.You computer uses a dynamic IP address not a static one.

    After you having above one next you will need to download the latest printer software from HP.

    Next run the Installer.

    Try for the basic troubleshot:-


    -> Launch the device manager.

    -> Then locate the keyboard and mouse driver location.

    -> After that right click on the select driver and navigate the properties.

    -> Then update the driver so that your keyboard and mouse will work fine.

    -> Also try to connect the mouse and keyboard to different USB port.

    -> Else reboot the Mac and then reset the NVRAM.

    Well friend if this type of problem is coming then i can find some reasons for that and that is it may be because your keyboard and mouse is not working properly or the keyboard and mouse drivers are outdated.
    So to fix these issues you need to go through these steps:
    <>first you should connect your mouse and keyboard to other device,if they are not working then you have to replace them.
    <>if mouse and keyboard is working properly then you have to update the drivers.go to device manager then to the mouse and keyboard driver,after that right click and then go to the update option.now these drivers will be updated.
    Thank you

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say...............

    1.Firstly check that your Keyboard and Mouse are working or not.

    2.You can check it by connecting them to the another system or mac.

    3.If that is not the problem then the problem may be with the power connection of your Mac.

    4.The cable connections inside your Mac may be damaged.

    5.If that is also not you problem then the problem is with your drivers.

    6.I hope by following above steps your keyboard problem will fixed.

    7.So now you have to update only the Mouse drivers.

    All the best..........
