Microsoft Wireless Multimedia Keyboard 1.1 and Standard Wireless Optical Mouse Installation

I have connected the transmitter and the green light has come on I have loaded the software and the installation was successful When I select both in Control Panel - each is working OK and has good transmission yet neither of them work. I am using a IBM Thinkpad Tablet Laptop and the keyboard and both the pen and the built in mouse work. I have searched for them in Bluetooth but they do not come up - it says no devices found When I go into hardware installation it says they are both installed The keyboard and mouse are both less than 2 feet from the transmitter What is it that I am missing to have them be recognised? Thanks

I am having problem with setting up wireless natural multimedia keyboard, does it have a separate receiver transmitter

It shouldn't if the wireless keyboard and mouse came together as a set. Try reconnecting the keyboard first then the mouse.
Here is how....
Each should have a connect button on the under side of the keyboard and on the mouse. The receiver may have a button on the top to push to first then push the buttons on the keyboard and then the mouse.

Optical light on Mouse not working


maybe the battery?
follow the steps below to troubleshoot the mouse
Wireless mouse does not respond (generic instructions)

Try to Resynchronize your device with the receiver(connector)
Follow these steps.:
Note When you synchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, put the device near the receiver and put other wireless keyboards and mouse at least 6 feet away.
1. Press the button on the receiver, and then verify that the light on the receiver starts to blink.
2. If a dialog box appears on the screen in several seconds, follow the instructions that appear on the screen. Otherwise, go to the next step.
2. Press and release the Connect Channel button on the bottom of the mouse or the keyboard.
3. Check the green light on the receiver. A steady green light means the synchronization was successful. If the problem persists, try steps 1 through 3 again.
For the Wireless Notebook mouse: This issue can occur if the micro-switch on the bottom of the mouse is not released. Use a pin or a pen to try to release the button if it is depressed.
Try different port and restart your computer.
Reinsert the batteries or install fresh batteries
If you have the possibility check whether the problem is because of your computer or the device, try the mouse or the keyboard on a different computer.

I suppose there is a reset button on the keyboard or the software provided so I suppose it could be possible, I don't know.
I use a Microsoft Wired Keyboard...
But Best of luck.

My laptop won't read my wireless (but it used to) since i moved

This is sort of general but it just may help.
Make sure your batteries are in correctly.
Make sure the transmitter dongle is in the USB.
Look on the transmitter and the mouse and keyboard
itself (bottom) for a little tiny button that says connect
or reconnect. Move the mouse about six inches away from
the transmitter and press both the transmitter and the mouse.
That should reestablish the signal twixt the two.(or three KB)
