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.

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

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.

Wireless mouse


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.
