Hi,

The wireless keyboard and mouse need batteries. There should be a small receiver that needs to be plugged in to a USB port. There may also be a software disk in the box which needs to be run so that the system is aware of the wireless devices.

Keep us posted

To add to what Dicke has said, I have seen a lot of battery powered hardware recently - phones, remote controls and so on - which are shipped with a small paper or plastic insulator across one end of the battery compartment to prevent the batteries being discharged during transit or storage. This has to be removed before the equipment will power up and start working. Worth a look.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
