Sorry everyone, I have xp pro. and it is a wireless microsoft keyboard and mouse, I also have my updates set to automatic. As I said, I just linked them to my laptop and the both workded fine. But not with My PC.
I'll have a look at the links and come back. thank you.
I also have XP Pro and a wireless mouse and keyboard; whenever the rechargeable batteries in either the mouse or keyboard need replacing, I have to undertake the simple routine afterwards of reassigning the channels.
have you installed the software and drivers for the mouse and keyboard on your PC? as with more expensive mice and keyboards they tend not to always work properley when first conected to a computer untill the software is installed
