Windows 7: Win7 won't detect any wireless device, I think....

Do both the reciever & mouse/keyboard have reset/connection buttons? You may have tried already but press both the reciever & mouse/keyboard at the same time.

Also, what about batteries? (yes, i know, very lame question but you never know)...

First, only plug in one keyboard at a time. DO NOT plug/unplug PS/2 devices while the PC is on.

Now, on the USB receiver, press the homing (whatever name) button. All lights startcycling. Now, push the smal homin button on the bottom of the mouse or keyboard. Keep pressure until the cycling lights on the receiver stop and one goes steady.

Thanks for your suggestion but I am STILL having no luck. The lights start cycling, I keep holding down the keyboard or mouse button, and eventually after about a minute they stop cycling and just the power button is lit up. Still no response from the keyboard or mouse.

Both receiver and keyboard and mouse have these buttons. I have tried your suggestion but still no luck.

And I have tried with about 4 sets of fresh batteries too...

This was an eBay purchase from a reputable seller. They accept returns but only if the product is proved faulty. I would really like to find a solution to this, rather than fork out 5 just to post it back...

You have attempted the solution.

You did not mention if either device lights up when you put in "fresh" batteries.

And just to certain, I must mention that you should use a small pointed object to push the buttons - not your finger.

Also, the maximum effective range of this set is about five feet.
