Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 5000 keeps opening and closing the windows start menu once connected


Did you try the following.
Normal 0 Press the Receiver button (and the lights will start flashing.
Then if the Keyboard isn't working, press the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back of the board to connect the keyboard to the receiver.

If the MOUSE isn’t working, push the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back of the mouse to connect to the receiver. Then they should work okay.
Hope this helps. Bud

The Keyboard not working, MS Wireless, laser, desktop 5000


i don't like the sound of you taking the hard drive out of a old computer and loading it in your new one without reinstalling windows especially with windows XP your choice i guess.

Did you try and couple the keyboard and receiver by pressing and holding the button on the keyboard for a while?
