Hello,
If your receiver shows up in Device Manager, you can try installing the driver manually.

Thanks for your response, but it wont show up in device manager. I've checked other forums and the advice you gave works for just about everyone, i have no clue why but when i plug the reciever in my computer wont acknowledge it, its almost as if. . . . it doesnt exist. Maybe its broke, i've taken great care of it and never had a problem. I've been troubleshooting for a few days now and dont want to buy a new one, what if it wont work either. Any ideas? Or am i just not seeing whats in front of my face?

Hi.
Can you not try it in another computer to see if it still works?
