Erm guyz.... I need an urgent response on this one plz... So I bought this microsoft wireless desktop 5000 wich is just great... was! Two days ago, my mouse starting acting up... Basically, my mouse pointer doesn't follow the trajectory I draw up on the monitor... For example when I move the cursor from one side of the screen to the other, the arrow will stop at half the distance... Until then, I haven't installed any drivers, since this was working fine as a plug'n play device... After this, I also installed the driver, but it was of no use... I also attempted to re-establish the connection between the mouse and the receiver... No good.... Didn't change anything... Yet my keyboard works perfectly and all the batteries are fresh... Please guyz.... I am really desperate.... At one point the arrow wasn't moving on the screen at all though I was heavily moving the mouse...

Did you couple the Keyboard with the receiver (press and hold on the keyboard)

Ok I just recently got the same problem AGAIN for the 5th time. Don't worry this is very possible to fix.
There are several ways in which you could fix this.
The number one suggestion that I would suggest is plug the USB receiver into a different port. (while the computer is off). Keep trying all your ports and make sure you press the connection button after each attempt.
If all is wrong and all USB ports seem not to work but you're signals are still strong...
*I would highly recommend trying to get into your windows desktop with the malfunctioning keyboard and the functioning mouse along with an extra functioning keyboard plugged in.
Turn off your computer and plug in an extra keyboard that will 100% work (i.e a cord keyboard)
Turn on your computer and follow this directory: Start -> Run -> devmgmt.msc
A device manager should pop up.
Now expand the 'Keyboards' section
The device should read the EXTRA keyboard name but that is not what you want.
What you want is for it to say 'Microsoft USB Dual Receiver Wireless Keyboard (intelliType Pro)' this is the name of your malfunctioning keyboard which is probably not there.
If that name is not there expand the 'Human Interface Devices' section
Scan the names and look for the icon that has a 'Yellow Exclamation Mark' meaning an error or a problem. Right click it and select properties.
Under device status, it should say 'this device is not working properly because its incomplete' or something along those lines. This generally means that while windows was trying to install the driver for your keyboard, a problem occured in the process of it.
To fix this right click the errored device and select uninstall.
Once uninstalled, select the action tab at the top and select 'scan for hardware changes'
If you have windows XP there should be several icon pop ups on the bottom right of your screen saying a device has been successfully installed etc. Which means only one thing. Your keyboard now works.
As extra... you can see your device now installed by expanding the keyboards section or opening microsoft keybaord intellitype and selecting hardware.
BTW my operating system is windows XP 2000
