Hello Sal,

Double check in your BIOS settings to make sure that you have a option like "USB keyboard Support" enabled. This is usually in the "Integrated Peripherals" area, but may differ from motherboard to motherboard though.

Also make sure that the wireless reciever is plugged into a USB port on the back of the computer. Sometimes it will need to be plugged into the first USB port on the back instead of just anyone of them.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
