    Wireless Keyboard and Mouse - Frustration!

    Hi all,

    Just purchased a new keyboard and mouse to replace an exsisting wireless set. BUT the new set will not connect as all. There is nothing wrong with the keyboard and mouse because they work fine on my laptop. They will just not connect on this machine. (Vista Home)

    any ideas or suggestions, Ive tried everything.

    Cheers

    The problem with lots of these wireless KB and mice sets is that they require special drivers to operate. The ironic thing (in some cases) is you're required to install a CD-ROM before you can actually use the KB and mouse This wouldn't be so bad if it was automated but at the very least you still need the function of a mouse to click - Next > Next > Next > Finish.

    You can't beat a standard PS2 KB and mouse, they just work
