Hi right i have a cordless keyboard and mouse made by labtec.

When you get your cordless keypad and mouse read up on it first.

Follow everything that it tells you to. putting the battery's in etc.

Then insert the CD-ROM first and let it install the drivers etc.

Once that is done then insert the leads in where the mouse and keypad normally goes, let the wizard find it, and once it has finished telling you that the hardware is installed and ready to use you will now find you should be able to use it.

What you want to make sure off is that you either use rechargable batteries or have a good supply as the mouse will use 2 every 5 or 6 days.

Hope this helps you.
