Microsoft wireless mouse and keyboard-batt. condit

Son sets up new computer, connects my existing wireless mouse and keyboard to it. With previous system I got warning of battery about to fail, now with this lot I don't. Any suggestions to cure this problem, please? Answers in simple terms please, to suit an old twit long past it.CP.

I'm an old twit too so I have a wireless mouse and keyboard. is the software installed on your new machine or did you/he just connect the mouse and keyboard? Sorry if it's a stupid question.

There's plenty of us old twits around!

I can't help your problem directly, but I can tell you that my wireless keyboard and mouse (Logitech) don't have any kind of low battery warning. But it isn't a problem - if one of them stops working, I replace the batteries and all is well.

I sometimes have to resynchronize with the base station, but that only takes a second.

looks like the software as not been loaded for the hardware. Windows is using a Generic driver

Thanks for replies; I didn't think it would work without the special drivers, I have now something to work on. CP.
