:o

I have a "Cordless Mouseman Optical" and "Logitech Cordless Keyboard".

Both work fine under Linux (and indeed in GRUB/DOS/BIOS) - I'm posting this from Ubuntu.

But under WinXP, the keyboard no longer works - tried removing drivers, reinslling CD, downloading new drivers, leaving bateries out, connect button many times, but as soon as I press a key on the keyboard, even the mouse freezes up. The computer is still fine - if I plug in my handheld, windows connects to it etc.

Anyone seen this before?

Gettin' desperate!

Uninstall all drivers and software which might relate to previous keyboards or mice which have been installed.

When removing the devices from Device Manager, make sure you check 'Show hidden devices' to see if entries of 'phantom' devices exist and remove those which do.

Tried that, but forgot about the hidden option, will try again.

More info -

There is an I/O conflict (Obviously both these devices use the one wireless receiver - is that normal?):

Under Logitech Compatible Mouse PS/2:

Under Easy Internet Keyboard

But will go and try that above...
