If you want to check if the software is installed correctly and the keyboard is working fine try using the multimedia key. If you are able to use the multimedia keys for reducing and increasing the volume or mute the sound that means it is working fine.

If you are trying to configure the Favorite keys then you will have to select the buttons from the software and link it to the particular program of your choice.

Open the software application

Select the button that you want to configure

Click on the browse button to select the program of your choice to open with that button.

My wireless mouse and keyboard have been working fien. When i switched on today, I got a "usb device not recognised" and they no longer funtion. ihave tried to check for new drivers, restarted...


I had that problem when I reinstalled my OS. I went to the Microsoft website and searched for the software for the keyboard and mouse, Intellipoint, for the mouse I think. It comes as a package for the mouse and kb based on the model you have. Pretty simple to find. Just load it and it should install without a problem and be recognized by PC. If your USB drivers are OK, this should be all you need to do.

The wireless mouse works but the laser 5000


press connect on the wireless device...let go and then within 5 seconds press the button on the bottom of the keyboard. Repeat the same steps for the mouse whther its working or not. The problem usually is that the keyboard and mouse are on the same "Wireless Channel" and only resyncing them puts them on a seperate channel, hope this helps.

I suppose there is a reset button on the keyboard or the software provided so I suppose it could be possible, I don't know.
I use a Microsoft Wired Keyboard...
