Hi all,

Recently I bought a new MS Wireless desktop to go along with my new computer.

The new computer is next to another one, which has another MS wireless desktop (different model though).

The problem is the wireless mouse from the older set seems to sometimes conflict with the new one, ie. the new mouse is "frozen" on that computer while the other one works.

They are a Wireless optical desktop 1000 and 3000 series.

Is there any wa to resolve this conflict issue? I've tried located the receiver on the one thats being "take over" closer to the mouse, but that doesn't help that much. Have also tried resetting the connection but to no avail.

If this is it:

Switch to a different channel
Note This does not apply to the Bluetooth mouse. 1. Press the button on the base unit. The green light should start to blink.
2. Watch the computer monitor for several seconds. If a dialog box appears, follow the instructions that appear on the screen. Otherwise, go to step 3.
3. Press the Connect Channel button on the bottom of the mouse.
4. Watch the green light on the base unit. It will be steady green if the synchronization was successful. If not or if the mouse still does not work, try the procedure again before you continue with the next section.

Yes I have tried that, but unfortunately it did not help.

Many thanks again.
