Hi,
I have a Microsoft Wireless Keyboard and Mouse. My system is Windows XP Professional Version 2000 Service Pack 3. The keyboard is working OK, but i cannot seem to get the mouse to operate. I am using a wired mouse to a USB port at the moment. I have downloaded http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/downl ... ategory=MK and selected the mouse which says "Wireless Optical Mouse" on the back of my mouse. The batteries are OK. If i go to Control Panel and select Mouse, It is now showing a picture of my wireless mouse. I tried unplugging the wired mouse, but the wireless mouse still does not work. Under the picture it says Connection device: and under that it says Wireless Optical Mouse. There is a tiny button on the back of the mouse, which says Connect at the side of it. I would appreciate any help.
Regards.

Hi,
Thanks for your reply. The mistake I was making was not to press the Connect button on the mouse, and the button on the receiver simultaneously. The mouse is now working fine. Many thanks.

Thats what I assumed
However its easier for you to see it on the Microsoft support pages than for me to reproduce it here!

logitech G700. wireless mouse with ZERO LAG. and the battery issue isn't an issue as it works like the mamba in that it can be run wired or wireless. razer mouses have always been poor imho due to reliability and i wouldn't go for a RAT. i had one and it gave up the ghost after just 5 months.
