Question about Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop 5000 Keyboard/Mouse

1 Answer

Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 5000 keeps opening and closing the windows start menu once connected

Hi,

I have this very strange problem. Yesterday I've bought the wireless keyboard & mouse set, connected it to my laptop and everything worked fine. Today I connected it and suddenly the keyboard repeatedly and automatically opens the start menu. Once I disconnect it is over again. It is a new set so I find it hard to believe that the button hangs or something. I've installed the latest intellipoint drivers from MS but that didn't help. I really hope you guys can help me out on this one.

Greetz,

Wouter

Did you try the following.
Normal 0 Press the Receiver button (and the lights will start flashing.
Then if the Keyboard isn't working, press the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back of the board to connect the keyboard to the receiver.

If the MOUSE isn’t working, push the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back of the mouse to connect to the receiver. Then they should work okay.
Hope this helps. Bud

Now, imaginge the mess if the dongle of your keyboard should control the mouse of another 9 usrs.
Now, it's competely different with bloetooth keyboards and"mice"

The wireless mouse works but the laser 5000


press connect on the wireless device...let go and then within 5 seconds press the button on the bottom of the keyboard. Repeat the same steps for the mouse whther its working or not. The problem usually is that the keyboard and mouse are on the same "Wireless Channel" and only resyncing them puts them on a seperate channel, hope this helps.

Go to start and run then type services.msc or if using windows 7 just go to start and type services.msc in the search box. Once open find the service "Human Interface Device Access". Change it from manual to automatic and make sure that it is started.
