This is a dpi problem, you may have to uninstal the driver and re install or download the latest drivers from the manufacture web site. All mice work on dots per inch in conjunction with your screen, so you can try a different refresh rate and see if that makes any difference.

Usb receiver broke on my kensington pilotboard desktop set, any ideas

You can contact Kensington's customer service and see whether they will ship you a replacement. As an alternative, you could buy another Kensington Wireless Pilot Board mouse and use its receiver. As a third alternative, you could buy another Kensington wireless mouse or keyboard and see whether the receiver for that will pick up the Pilot Board keyboard. Finally, you could buy another wireless mouse or keyboard (not Bluetooth) and see whether its receiver will pick up the Pilot Board.

Kensington PilotMouse 72129 Erratic movement across the screen, even with reset and new batteries

Microsoft has a knowledge base article on erratic mouse pointer movement that may help. As you can see in this article, there is more to it than uninstalling and reinstalling the mouse driver. Microsoft Support on Mouse Problems.
As I've said, it's possible that something has corrupted your mouse driver. You can either 1) re-install the driver, or 2) roll back the driver. Either one of these may help. To roll back your driver in Windows XP, go to Start --> Settings --> Control Panel --> Mouse. Click on the "hardware" tab. Select the appropriate pointing device, and click "properties." Click the driver tab, then select "roll back driver."
Under the "hardware" tab, there may be more than one mouse. If this is the case, select the one that is not used, follow the settings above, and then select "uninstall." Or, you can go into Control Panel --> System --> Hardware --> Device Manager, and remove the device under "Mice and other pointing devices

I need a USB flash drive for mouse/keyboard. I have a Kensington Pilot Board Laser Wireless Desktop Set. PN K64390. I can't find the USB drive to make it work. Can I order one somewhere? Or go buy...

you are not looking for a Flash Drive. you are looking for the radio receiver dongle. You will have to contact Kensington to purchase one but they may not be able to, you will be better off replacing the unit.

if the unit is Bluetooth, you can buy any bluetooth receiver to connect it.

I have a kensington wireless mouse. the wireless keyboard works, but the mouse does not. The red laser light is on, but it won't move

Have you tried to resync the mouse with the receiver. Usually,you need to press the button on the reciever first, then quickly hit the button on bottom of the mouse.
