Hey all-

Considering getting rid of my stock keyboard/mouse system. I've heard good things about bluetooth combos, and some other wireless setups as well. Remarks, recommendations, and concerns?

Thanks all,
Garret

My daughter recently bought me a Logitech wireless mouse/keyboard/calculator kit. It works flawlessly and certainly looks more modern in siver-black than my old beige-coloured kb.

However, I do have one gripe. I still have to plug my old PS2 kb in if I want to get into the BIOS settings or re-install XP from the Microsoft CD, as wireless devices don't work until Windows is up and running. Not something you need to do often I admit, but it does mean you have to store your PS2 kb somewhere safe and don't get rid of it, otherwise your well stuffed.

Hey pip22,

I'm not sure if you have tried turning on your Legacy USB Keyboard settings in your BIOS. If you do that, Wireless & USB keyboards should work for going into the BIOS and others. For my computer it works great since I have have dual boot Vista & Fedora
