Question about Logitech Cordless Desktop S 510
My keyboard and mouse have worked flawlessly for about a year. Just this week the mouse started sticking and jerking, and I noticed sometimes I would have to hit a key twice to make it work. Sometimes, when I hit a letter a different letter shows up, like hitting an 'R' and an 'L" will appear. Or hitting a 'G' and it would do a backspace. When I tried to go online to see if I could figure out a solution, any webpage I try will automatically zoom in the maximum amount. I can zoom out again, but as soon as I take my finger off the button it zooms back in. Web surfing from that computer is now impossible. My mouse is unstable, hesitant and needs to be clicked repeatedly; the numbers pad on the keyboard is sometimes not responsive. I have had this keyboard and mouse for over a year but the problem began recently. Could it be a Vista glitch? I spoke with their Tech support and they referred me to Logitech. They say it is not a Vista issue.

Try reinstalling the software and get back to me. Also make sure there is no source of interference, like a strong electromagnetic field nearby (speakers,etc).

There are some basic steps that you can take to make sure that your wireless keyboard and mouse have the best chances of working.
First and foremost, replace your batteries.
This is the leading cause of failure. Strong batteries are vital if your wireless keyboard and mouse, including Microsoft, Logitech, and other brands, are to work correctly.
Weak batteries can be frustrating to deal with. Sometimes the mouse or keyboard will work fine, and sometimes they start acting odd.
This is where the jerky and slow motion problems can show up. The problem is that Alkaline batteries can provide plenty of energy at first, even if they are worn down.
After a few minutes or hours of use, however, they lose their capacity and the jerky problems can start up. You may even deal with it, then walk away from the computer for the rest of the day (such as leaving your office).
While you are gone, the batteries regain some of their capacity. The cycle repeats itself until eventually the keyboard or mouse do not work at all.
Another common problem is that the receiver for the wireless keyboard or mouse can be too far away for them to work. I have personally seen cases where the mouse works if used on one side of the mouse pad, and not the other.
This was due to the distance of the mouse from the receiver being too great when on the far side of the mouse pad.
The same can be true of a keyboard.
This will also cause the same jerky motions to a mouse, and missed keys on a keyboard.
The solution to this problem is to move the receiver closer to the keyboard and mouse. If the receiver is of the USB fob type (similar in shape to a USB memory stick) then you can buy a USB extension cable and place the fob closer.
Perhaps placing it next to the monitor would work best. If the receiver has a tendency to fall behind your desk, a small, clear piece of scotch tape will hold it down, and will be one hundred percent removable if you decide to move it later.
If your wireless keyboard or mouse have a desktop receiver, try moving it a little closer.
You may also need to press the "connect" buttons on the receiver and also underneath the keyboard and mouse.
If they have an on/off switch you should turn them on and off.
Hopefully this article will help you to fix your Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse slow, **** or lockup problems.
If not, check with the technical support and Frequently Asked Questions sections of your manufacturer's support website.
hope this helps
