I have two desktop computers each running Windows XP with a switch to change the Keyboard and the mouse from one computer to the other. It has worked perfectly since it was installed two months ago. Now when I change over the mouse cursor freezes when selected to the one machine but when switching back to the other machine the cursor again moves correctly. Any suggestions ?
When you start up, have to mouse on the one that freezes and then switch off that one. (turn on the one that freezes first and have the mouse set it. then once it is on boot the other one and then switch mouse.

First try changing the batteries, reconnect the dongle or the connection device of your wireless keyboard and mouse, then restart your computer. If the step wont work reinstall the Bluetooth/Infrared software driver the wireless keyboard and mouse then restart the computer. If this fails still look under Ad/Remove programs if you have a Setpoint installed then remove it and restart computer, both or at least one of the devices should work. If one or both wont work then you need to contact the manufacturer and have the defective device/s be replaced. Just a heads up, they may ask you to reinstall your operating system / do a reformat of your computer so you need to back up your data ahead of time using a wired keyboard and mouse. Have a nice day ahead!
windows xp info. go to start, control panel, systems, hardware, device manger, click on x at keyboard see your keyboard there right click delete keyboard shut down and reboot leave keyboard plugged in...and it should find and reload the keyboard.
if this does not fix the problem..shutdown the computer unplug the keyboard and mouse...reboot the computer and let load all the way...I know you can't do nothing about signing in or working on it but let load all the way after finished loading push button to power it off are unplug it...then replug the keyboard and mouse and boot it back up should fix it...
Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button
on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to
the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button
and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you
change batteries or glitch. Hope this helps you. Bud
There must be interference on the signal from the mouse by the second PC
Make sure that there are no power cables close to the mouse or receiver, I have seen this cause problems many times.
You could also try changing the channel in the router settings in case this is causing the problem, it may be on the same channel as the mouse but only interferring when the second PC is turned on, ta, HPC
Make sure batteries are good in both the Keyboard and Mouse. Then press the button on the Receiver.
Press the Receiver button (and the lights will start

If the MOUSE isn’t working, push the small RESET/CONNECT button

should work okay.
Hope this helps. Bud
First download and run regscrub xp and ccleaner to clean up your system then try uninstalling and reinstalling the logitech setpoint software and try the keyboard and mouse again. Let me know if this works.
