Connecting wireless mouse and keyboard to new system

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 trouble with my wireless mouse and keyboard on my existing system. Geoff Stokes, melbourne Australia.

    Thanks for your quick and helpful response. However, I do not have a wired keyboard/mouse that I can use. I realise I can go out and buy one. I have tried connecting the wireless keyboard/mouse before the VDU is connected but this doesn't work. cheers! Geoff.

    Hi Tech 8
    Thanks for your advice but to get into the cmos screen I have to press and I don't have a keyboard to do this. A "catch22" situation if ever there was one! Both neghbours have laptops! However, tomorrow (Monday) the local school will lend me a wired keyboard/mouse. Again thnks for your advice. Geoff.

    Hi everyone
    OK, I managed to borrow a wired keyboard and mouse from the local High School and within five minutes I was up and running. My Wireless keyboard and mouse are now installed and I am enjoying my CPU update. Thank you to everyone who helped me, and your thoughts and advice are very much appreciated. Thanks again; who knows, maybe I can help one of you one day in return. Cheers. Geoff.

Just plug in a keyboard/mouse while upgrading sound like the best bet

    If you are setting up a new Box hard drive and all, or even just changing major hardware you will need wired control because wireless device drivers are searched for after basic config is reached
