Replacing keyboard and mouse

I am trying to replace the wireless keyboard and mouse combo on my HP506Q Touchsmart with a Microsoft wireless combo. No matter what I do, the system will not respond to the new ones. Neither the new keyboard nor the new mouse will work. I have down loaded the newest drivers from Microsoft and installed them. I have tried the connect switches on both mouse and keyboard. I have removed and reinstalled the batteries from both. Amy suggestions?

Re: Replacing keyboard and mouse

Did you disconnect the little blue USB receiver under the body?



You should aslo be able to go into Control Panel -> Uninstall Programs and uninstall HP Keyboard. You can get your keyboard software back by Start -> PC Help & Tools, Recovery Manager.
