Recently built a new desktop and switch over my logitech wireless desktop over from my old to the new computer. The wireless desktop worked perfectly on my old computer. But then after hooking it onto the new computer, sometimes the SOME OF the keys (usually the same few ones) would not respond until I press a few dozen times. But sometimes they will work fine. I've tried switching the wireless desktop to different usb ports, but same deal. I first thought my wireless desktop might be failing. But when I hooked it back onto my old computer, it works perfectly fine for hours. I was wondering could it be that the USB devices on my new computer are having problems or could it be really be other causes? Or is it really just the wireless signaling (though it won't explain it working perfect on my old computer)?

Are both machines running the same OS? It could be an OS or driver issue, example some products work fine on XP but do not on Vista.

Hate to say it but try a USB/PS2 adapter for the USB cable end and hook into PS/2 port.
Had the same problem with an Athalon system. :thumbsup:
