I BOUGHT A NEW COMPUTER AND TRIED TO CONNECT MY OLD WIRELESS KEYBOARD AND MOUSE TO IT, BUT IT COULD NOT RECOGNIZE IT. I DONT HAVE ANY HARDWARE FOR INSTALLATION OR MANUALS. HOW DO I GET THAT HARDWARE IF ANY, PLEASE HELP.

    I'm having exactly the same problem, got a new computer, used the original installation disc for the keyboard and mouse and it just won't work. The receiver's lights flicker for a while then just stops completely.



    I only got a new computer tower and am using my old monitor so it won't be interference from the monitor.



    Any help would be appreciated.

You will note I had the same problem, I left the receiver plugged in and after a month and a power blackout the computer recognised the keyboard and mouse. Go figure!!

Hi there,
Underneath the mouse and the keyboard will be buttons labeled "Connect", you will need to resync with the receiver plugged into your computer. Press the connect button on each device in turn and it will attempt to resync.
If this does not work the next thing is to test with fresh batteries, however it is unlikely that both the keyboard and the mouse would run out at the same time.
Finally try with the receiver right next to the keyboard/mouse, sometimes other devices can interfere with wireless signals (WiFi networks, microwaves, vacuum cleaners etc...).
Good luck!

Keyboard not working


To connect the keyboard or mouse to the computer, you must connect the wireless device through the USB port and get it to hold a good connection. You do not have to install any devices to use these products, they automatically work when you plug them in. When it says that the device is recognized, you are ready to use it! If you have a desktop, you can also plug the wireless device to the mouse port. The keyboard and mouse work properly up to 5' away from the connected wireless device. If you can get the wireless device to work properly, you should have no troubles with the product.

Keyboard


If the keyboard has a reciever, make sure you press the button on both. also you may try to un-plug the USB cord from the computer for the reciever, turn the computer off, plug the reciever back in and turn the computer on again. it should say " New hardware found" or something to that effect. if it asks you to install it , try that. the omputer may simply nee to recognize the keyboard.

Keyboard and mouse


How old is this mouse since it was made?  It may need a driver update, if you'll just go into the manufacturer's website and look for downloads and drivers, this may solve your problem to recognize the accessories from your hardware.
