Question about Targus AMW05US Mouse

Connecting wireless mouse and keyboard

I am upgrading and have a new CPU to install and I am using an existing VDU.
When I start up the CPU a pop-up screen on the VDU says, ’Detected new hardware’ (VDU). I have no way of cancelling this pop-up screen because my wireless mouse and my wireless keyboard are obviously not yet connected. I cannot connect them because the pop-up screen is frozen waiting for my decision to ‘Cancel’ or click ‘Next’. Can you help me please? I am using XP and have had no problems using my wireless mouse on my existing system. Many thanks Geoff Stokes. Melbourne, Australia.

How to install wireless keyboard and mouse drivers item no:kb5200w

  • 1 Check the information that came with your hardware for compatibility issues with the hardware specifications of the computer you are using or with Windows Vista. You can also check for compatibility issues online.
  • 2 Attach the "receiver" on the keyboard or mouse port at the back of your CPU. The receiver should come with the wireless keyboard or mouse upon purchase. Usually, it is roughly three inches wide and three inches long. The computer will alert you to install drivers once it has detected the newly attached hardware. Insert the installation CD that came with the receiver or follow the installation wizard that pops up to install the device. If you do not have the installation CD on hand, Open a web browser and navigate to the manufacturer's website for the latest driver. Download it from there and install it to your computer.

    The antenna that you found is purely for the Wireless LAN. The Keyboard and Mouse are already paired with the bluetooth receiver. This is "HIDDEN" in the mouse battery compartment. But not where you'll see it... it is in the LID of the compartment.

    I have a MX 3200 wireless keyboard and mouse. the

    The problem was that ther keyboard was encrypted for my protection. this sometimes prevents the keyboard from connecting to the receiver and therefore the computer. to stop encrypton: press the left CRTL + left ALT + F12 key at the same time. Press the connect button on the receiver (you only have a few seconds to then press the connect button on the keyboard. Press the ESC key. Now you must start the encrypton again. Install SetPoint software from after you save and run the program, then press left CTRL + left ALT + F12 keys. sometimes there is an encrytpion wizard that pops up to help you further encrypt the keyboard, but this does not always pop up. It didn't on mine. My keyboard just started working right after i re-sarted the encryption.

    hope this helps others that were in my situation.

    STEP 1 - Battery Installation:
    The first step in installing your Wireless Wheel Mouse is to install the batteries.
    1 - Locate the two AAA sized 1.5 Volt batteries that came in your Wireless Wheel Mouse package.
    2 - Remove the battery compartment cover located on top of your mouse by pressing the cover release button and sliding the cover backwards.
    3 - Install the two batteries into the compartment paying close attention to proper polarities.
    4 - Replace the battery compartment cover.

    STEP 2 - Connecting the Receiver:
    If you are connecting the mouse to a notebook that has an onboard pointing device or if you are using a keyboard with an onboard pointing device, you may need to
    disable that device before installing and using the mouse.
