labtec wireless mouse and keyboard install

  Newuser3605 23:09 17 Feb 2010

I was given a wireless labtec mouse and keyboard without any disks.
I put in new batteries and downloaded the drivers from the Internet site.
I cannot get either to work on restarting the computer.
Has anyone got any ideas? Many thanks.

There should be a "connect" button on both mouse and keyboard, possibly also on the transmitter unit that plugs into the PC. Have you pressed these?

The buttons are UNDERNEATH both mouse and kbd.

And do you have a stupid little base station-aerial thingy with it? Which may also have a button?

I forget now.

I bought a Technika combo set from Tesco last November. I wanted the Logitech set but they were out of stock.

While my previous Logitech w/less mouse worked all the time, without using the button, even after reboot and plugging/unplugging the dongle, the Technika set needed the reset buttons pushing all the time.

I took the set back and went window shopping in the PC World aisles.

ALL the combo w/less sets seem the same.

In the end I settled on another Logitech w/less mouse but a wired £12.99 kbd. (with the extra functions on the FKeys).

I am happy now. 4 months all just works 24/7.

For more info on yours, check the Labtec website or Google.
