Windows 7: USB Wireless Mouse and Keyboard freezing

USB Wireless Mouse and Keyboard freezing

Hi there

I have a problem with my Microsoft Wireless Desktop 3.1A, running an Optical Mouse 2000 and a Multimedia Keyboard 1.1. The driver is the latest from Microsoft.

I get random freezeups - it seems like the receiver stops working as both mouse and keyboard stop responding simultaneously.

It tends to happen soonish after boot (within a few minutes) or not at all (cross fingers).

I've tried putting the usb in other ports, same result. I've looked in Device Manager, no conflicts. I've looked at system reports but nothing ever shows up - except that I've had to force a reboot.

Any ideas?

@mbalax I have had the same problems with these wireless keyboards. Your best bet is to use a Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse. I have yet to have any issues with them. Just my 2 cents.
