Wireless Keyboard & Mice Testing
Only keep wireless keyboards and mice that have USB dongle type recievers. Just like anything else, if it looks particularly nice keep it.
You will need:
- Bag with USB dongles - these can be found in the hardware test area in the small drawer next to the research laptop
- AA and AAA batteries - tested batteries can be found in the receiving area
Do a Visual inspection for breakage, dirt, etc.
First open the keyboard tester:
- terminal> wx-keyboard-tester
Most dongles, mice, and keyboards will have a "connect" button on them. After pluging the usb stick into the computer you will press the connect button on the USB stick. A light should flash. Now press the connect button on the keyboard and/or mouse.
The keyboard and/or mouse should now be paired and can be tested in the keyboard tester.
All keys should be lit green in wx-keyboard-tester. With the exception of print screen, and any FN keys.
If keyboard and/or mouse tested good affix a "tested by" sticker and secure dongle and mouse to keyboard.
- Any keys do not work
- Keyboard or mouse is extremely dirty
- uses PS2 inputs
