New wireless keyboard and mouse problems

My new Advent ADE-AD2 keyboar and mouse do not work;
The software installs okay and the PC recognises this with "New hardware installed and ready to use".
The toolbar shows features such as CAPS lock etc. in reference to the new keyboard.
The new batteries are correctly in and the switch on the underside of the mouse is in the on position, but the red LASER on the underside of the mouse does not show any visible signs of being on.
The USB reciever is directly plugged into the PC tower.
Niether the new mouse nor the keyboard work, though my old ones obviously do. How do I get these products to work?
many thanks.

    You don't want to look into a laser, and it's infrared anyhow, so you can't see it w/o a particular fluorescent tag.  

    Things sound pretty good...perhaps there's a step in installation such as hitting recessed buttons on the transmitter on the PC, then the keyboard or mouse to pair them up (so you can type)?  Perhaps instead the mouse driver preferences have a little bluetooth pairing setup screen where you type a password on the PC and mimic that on your new keyboard before it lets you go forth?

Okay, it was as simple; hold the button on the reciever dongle for a couple of seconds, and the the same with the keyboard or mouse.

Why can't they just make the instructions clearer

many thanks Saigua

No light on mouse (ie the laser underneath)

Maybe your laser is very tiny, like mine.

Advent ADE-AD2 drver for vista SP1?

I ignored the "doesn't support your OS" and rebooted. I then got the information icons (scroll lock, num lock, caps lock) on the taskbar. I'm happy with that.

you can't get rid of the PS2 because thats where it looks for the mouse, being usb it's not listed in dxdiag, there should be a mouse menu from your mouse and keyboard driver, or in control panel to tweak the Dpi

Advent ADE-AD2 Wireless keyboard and mouse

I've actually just bought a new keyboard and mouse (Today!) because I could not get my advent ade-ad2 to work at all on vista, (Previously had it on my xp).
Thought I'd give it one last try as PC world were no help this morning and previous internet searches were no help either.

Soooo. after the usual on/off...push in little button on underside etc.etc...the only thing that I did different was press the "wake" button on the keyboard.

Bloody hell, it worked!

New keyboard going back tomorrow!

Advent ade-ad2 keyboard an mouse problem

do you have an Infra Red device that is installed on your main PC. Because most laptops have infra Red devices and as well with bluetooth connectivity to function your wireless keyboard and mouse.. Go to my computer icon, right click on it then left click properties then go to device manager then check for additional devices.
