ok. i will try to explain better.... when i turn the computer on it stops at the boot screen and says no keyboard connected when i have my wireless mouse and keyboard plugged in. so i plugged my old keyboard into the keyboard slot and the computer boots up. once it boots into windows the wireless keyboard and mouse works properly.

I ran into this issue with my USB keyboard as well. Heres the fix

1)reboot your PC and enter the BIOS
2)In the settings somewhere there should be a section that says Halt on all change it to halt on all but keyboard
3)Save settings and exit

Use the adapter provided with the keyboard and mouse to connect it through the PS/2 connections instead of the usb connections. You should have full functionality throughout the boot cycle. (this works on the wireless combo made by Micro Innovations AKA MI) I just had a customer with this problem and thats how I solved it.
