    Weird wireless keyboard and mouse problem

    Hi All,

    I have a strange problem with a new Pixxo wireless keyboard and mouse. When I first turn on the computer, the keyboard works to enter bios and move around. But when Vista starts, the keyboard and mouse do not connect. Pressing connect buttons, turning off and on don't seem to help. But when I unplug the receiver from the usb port, wait a few seconds, and then plug it back in, everything works fine.

    Pixxo tech support had me check power management options on the USB root hub entries in device manager, but that didn't seem to be the problem.

    Any suggestions?

    First new does not mean that it works. Try it with another computer and try another keyboard with your current computer. The results will be self explanatory
    If that does not lead to a solution. Go to search type device manager and make sure that the driver is up to date and no yellow warning markers near it.
