I have a Medion 8083 desktop with wireless mouse and keyboard that I am about to sell/giveaway. I took all of my data off and put the PC to one side and then decided to double check that that I had left no personal stuff on it. I switched it back on and found that neither the wireless mouse or the wireless keyboard functions,despite working perfectly for the last seven years. Batteries in both have been replaced with brand new ones and the rollers in the mouse have been checked for fluff etc. Connecting WIRED mouse and keyboard and everything functions as it should. Connecting the wireless mouse up again -the wireless receiver blinks at every movement of the mouse but there is no movement of the cursor on the screen. Could this be the drivers? Any suggestions gratefully received as I do not wish to advertise something that it is not.
