Make sure you have new batteries and that there are no power cables close to the keyboard or receiver, I have seen this cause problems many times.

Try pressing the connect button on the receiver, then keep pressing the connect button on the keyboard until the receiver light stops flashing.

Sometimes the connect button is under the battery cover for the keyboard.

Do i need a keyboard and a receiver for the mouse to work and if not how do i hook it up

Your wireless mouse and Keyboard work with the same wireless transmitter that is plug in into a USB port.of your computer. You can use the wireless mouse with that USB transmitter and dont use the wireless Keyboard. If you need a keyboard you can get one to be plug in into a USB port with the wire attach to the keyboard.
