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.

    Thanks in advance.

How to install wireless Keyboard and Mouse?Along with the development of the computer world, various brands of wireless keyboard and mice sets appear, you can purchase them from website or regular computer stores as well. Whatever your case may be, the directions for getting them ready for your computer are all basically the same. So, if you've bought a wireless set recently and you're having some trouble getting it to work, just follow these instructions and you'll be well on your way to wireless bliss!
First of all, wireless keyboards and mice aren't able to receive power from your computer like the wired ones do. Therefore, they need batteries to operate. And that's the first thing you need to do. Turn your keyboard over and you'll see a battery compartment. Take the cover off and insert the batteries according to the + - (plus, minus) compatibility. When you're done with the keyboard, you can go ahead and do the same thing for the mouse.
Once you've got the batteries in place, find a spot on your desk where you'd like to place both the keyboard and mouse. You won't have to move them around anymore, so make sure you find a place you'll be comfortable with. Now, while you're doing this, you'll also want to keep in mind where the wireless receiver will go. If you recall, a tip on that was in yesterday's newsletter.
The next thing you'll want to do is install the software that came along with your keyboard and mouse. Now, keep in mind that if you have Windows XP on your computer, you more than likely won't need to deal with the software at all. You can just plug the receiver into your computer and XP will automatically recognize the new hardware for you. On the other hand, if you're using an older version of Windows, you will need to install the software. To do so, just insert the disk into your CD ROM drive and follow along with the on-screen instructions. That's all you have to do!
The next step is connecting the wireless receiver to your computer, but again, if you have Windows XP, you've probably already done this. If not, it's likely that the wireless keyboard and mouse set you have works via a USB cable. So, all you have to do is find an open USB port on your computer and plug the receiver in. Once you plug it in, your computer will configure the keyboard and mouse so you can start to use them. You'll see a message that says something like "Your new hardware is now ready to use." (In XP, you'll get a pop up message that says "New Hardware Found"). Either way, that means you can now start using your new hardware!
Now that you've got everything set up, the next thing you'll want to do is test the keyboard and mouse, just to make sure everything's working properly. Go ahead and open some programs with your mouse and type some text in with your keyboard. Run through all the keys on your keyboard to make sure there are no problems with any of them and make sure all the buttons on your mouse work right.
Now, go on and enjoy your new wireless keyboard and mouse. Wireless really is the best way to go!

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.

    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 www.logitech.com/downloads. 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.
