    I installed the Microsoft Laser desktop 4000 keyboard and wireless laser mouse 5000 and now my microphone will not pick up any sounds at all. The funny thing is that the mike was working BEFORE I installed the keyboard.

The microphone doesnot work, when i plug one or even the built in if it has one

Install the latest drivers. Many people forget that the computers need help to recognize what you are plugging in. Also, go into system controls and check the Sound settings. Your mic volume may be set too low.

Targus usb optical mouse not recognized by windows

Hi there!

The Targus WIreless Mouse with Power management is supported by Windows and does not require additional drivers. To confirm that Windows has loaded the drivers:

Click Start>Right-click My Computer>Select Manage

Select Device Manager

Expand the Human Interface Devices section.

You should see an entry for USB Human Interface Device. If you don't see an entry, right-click on the Human Interface Devices entry and select Scan for hardware changes.

If you don't see any results, look for any yellow question marks or exclamation marks underneath the Unknown Devices category. You may find the mouse listed there. If so, right-click on it and select "Update Driver". Select "Yes, this time only", then click Next, leave the default selection as is and click Next. If the update fails, try again except this time, after the first "Next", select the advanced option, "Install from a list or a specific location", then click Next.

Select "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install".

If a default selection appears on the screen that follows, click Next and it should install. If successful, I recommend you restart your machine for any changes to take effect. If the installation isn't successful, you may need to submit a ticket on Targus' support site.

I hope this helps you! If you have any questions, feel free to reply.

Dynex wireless mouse DX-PWLMSE won't work

The mouse should be Plug and Play. Did you install the drivers before plugging the mouse's receiver in? The PC has to have the drivers first in order to take advantage of the Plug and Play capability. If you plugged the mouse's receiver in before installing the drivers, unplug the mouse receiver, uninstall the driver, reboot your PC, reinstall the driver, then plug the receiver in and you should be fine.

Otherwise, press the Connect button on the receiver first, and then the Connect button on the mouse, and that should establish the connection. You don't need to disable your touch pad in order to use the mouse.
