My wireless keyboard/mouse combo keeps going into "free fall" where the contents of the window suddenly plunges down then back up again...then down and up and down. A bit like a yoyo and it's driving me nuts.I've tried relocating the receiver but it makes no difference. I'm fairly sure that it IS a keyboard/mouse issue be cause I have recently upgraded my motherboard and cpu and did a clean install of win xp pro.Please can anyone shed some light on this. :tazz:

Hi chippy56. Welcome to Geeks to Go. I would suspect you have some interference problem. It could be coming from any number of electronic devices nearby inside of your house or even from outside. This is one disadvantage of "wireless". Try changing the channel on the keyboard/mouse if possible.

My employer tried using wireless keyboards and mouses and sometimes my co-workers mouse would take over my computer. We also have lots of electronic equipment in the room and it was causing a problem too. I got so frustrated that I ended up going back to an optical mouse with a cord!

Hi austin
Thanks for your input. A friend of mine has voiced the same opinion. Gonna have one more go at siting the receiver and if that fails check e-bay sometime soon.
