I hooked Mac Mini to my Sharp t.v.  I use the wireless keyboard and flat pad mouse; I can't tap the mouse to get into set up. I'm stuck on Language. I can move the mouse around on the screen, but tapping on arrow to continue doesn't work. I can tab on keyboard, but the return doesn't get me to the page. For some reason, they don't seem to recognize that entry? This is my first MAC, so let me know if its an operator error...lol...

    Hi, & a warm welcome!


    Do you have a USB KB and/or Mouse to try?

  • McGann Level 1 (0 points)

    Hi BDAqua, I don't have a USB keyboard to try, however, maybe i can plug a conventional mouse into the back of the mini. I'm not in front of the computer right now. I'll try that and let you know. I just purchased the Mac Mini, I-Wireless keyboard, I-track pad.


    thanks for the quick respose, i will post again once i try the regular mouse...

    Hi BDAqua, i will let you know when i try the conventional mouse. if the conventional mouse works to set up the Mini; will i be able to use the wireless mouse? It seems like it should work because the arrow is moving, just doesn't recognize when i click.


    Anyway, I'll get back. It may take me a day or so to get back; i'm all jammed up right now at the office.

    Well, we need to see if a wired obe works before trying to figure this out.

    Problem solved, operator error.

    OK, great news to hear you figured it out, thanks!


    Any clue you could give to help others?
