Sorry about the spellings mistakes and at the end it should say "keyboard and mouse combo and i would be happy for some advice on how to fix it"

Pressed and held in the connect button on the mouse (usually underneath) it's small, like a little reset button. It establishes the connection for the mouse, the keyboard should also have one on the bottom, If that fails I would return it...(unless the batteries are flat in the mouse?)

What if i delete the keyboard and mice device then re-connect it in a different USB port, would that work if not il just take it back and get another one.

Batteries and connect switch have been tried, and you are sure that the batteries in the mouse are ok, then trying it in another port won't hurt....You don't need to delete the devices, just plug it into the port on your pc (a different one) If that fails return for refund / replacement.

I had a wireless mouse and keyboard supplied with my Advent computer.
Keyboard was fine but the mouse(ball would you believe) ate batteries faster than a real mouse eats cheese!!
