My Wife's Medion computer (XP Home OS) has a wireless mouse/keyboard that operates with a USB connection. The LED's on the wireless receiver do not light up although the USB ports are OK. On switching the computer on , windows stars to load until the user choice requires selection. The on screen white arrow does not move.There is no PS/2 connection on this machine. I have tried another USB wireless mouse(LED's illuminate) but it does not activate the on screen arrow.
I appear to have no way of communicating with the computer. Is there a solution to this problem?
Thanks Woodchip and Hawy for your help. Whatever I try (wired mouse 2 types!) I can't get a signal into the computer. This prevents me using F8 or accessing the device manager. I phoned Medion support again today and their suggestion is a failure in the motherboard. I tend to think that they are correct! The machine is over 3 years old and the cost of repair is not worth it. At least all three of us have advanced our knowledge<g> Thanks for your help
