Ah. Well I have a Logitech Wireless K/M too. Mine has a button on the IR antenna. Just hold it down first then push the buttons on the keyboard and mouse and it's set. But if yours does not have buttons then I dunno?

I hate wireless keyboards and mice, I just don't get the point, unless you have a 20 foot screen then your hardly going to have to sit far enough away to need it and the things always run out of power when your doing something important.

a 20 foot screen would be SWEEET! If you could afford a 20' screen then you could afford lots of batteries.

Windows 7 has sometimes problems with usb device's,had the same problem with a mobile,what i did was go to control panel:

1 In Device Manager, double click to expand "Universal Serial Bus controllers", right click on the Host Controller, click "Uninstall" and click "OK".

2 Repeat the step 1 to uninstall all items under "Universal Serial Bus controllers".

Then restart your computer windows 7 would install all the usb device's.

Hope it works.

I would check the basics... fresh batteries and check for a "connect" button as another poster stated.

Also, there might be some wireless interference causing the issue. Most wireless keyboard/ mice run on 2.4 GHz signal which can be interrupted by even a microwave oven.

Additionally it is not going to far to say that the one you purchased was defective.

If it says windows 7 compatible, disconnect your computer from the internet, then plug in the usb device, forcing it to use built in drivers.

I find windows 7 sometimes searches windows update and gets stuck, and will never install the driver. Manually letting Windows 7 do this later, works great.

I have a logitech wireless mouse that I use with Windows 7, on the bottow of the mouse is an on/off switch to save the battery life, have you checked that?

Don't know about the keyboard but it may also have an on/off switch.

We bought a wireless mouse a few years ago. Damn thing runs the battery down in two days. Got it sitting in a box of parts now, can't give the thing away. Junk!
