Default Keyboard will not work.

Last night my Mouse failed so I put a new battery in it and it still wouldn't work. As it was old and I happened to have a new very smart Sandstream I set that up but found there was a small short USB plug which I had to place in the back of the computer tower then it worked.


I then found that the Keyboard wouldn't work so I checked the batteries with a meter and found they were very weak but I had no spares so had to wait until this morning. I bought some new batteries but whatever I do the Keyboard will not act so can anyone suggest what I can do. I'm using my laptop to send this.

Resolved the problem here is what happened.
Last night my Mouse failed. I replaced the batteries but still it didn't work so I opened up a spare one, a Sandstrom which had a small USB gadget with it. It didn't work so I removed the one at the back of the tower replacing it with the one that came with the Sandstrom which then worked perfectly. The only problem was that then the Keyboard wouldn't work. I changed the batteries but it still wouldn't work and then I had a brainwave, I stuck the small USB gadget taken out from the back of the tower last night and stuck it in a USB socket on the front of the tower.
I know that I have exposed my complete technical ignorance and I will now do it again by asking, why do the experts who build computers create them with the need for two USB gadgets?
