I have a "Cordless Mouseman Optical" and "Logitech Cordless Keyboard".

Both work fine under Linux (and indeed in GRUB/DOS/BIOS) - I'm posting this from Ubuntu.

But under WinXP, the keyboard no longer works - tried removing drivers, reinslling CD, downloading new drivers, leaving bateries out, connect button many times, but as soon as I press a key on the keyboard, even the mouse freezes up. The computer is still fine - if I plug in my handheld, windows connects to it etc.

Anyone seen this before?

Gettin' desperate!

More - There is an I/O conflict - both use 0060 and 0064 in the I/O range - any way round this? I've uninstalled and reinstalled both mouseware and itouch.

I have seen this on several Dell systems. Within those systems I have found that the reciever for the wireless KB & mouse has to be plug into the USB port under the RJ-45 port. The #1 USB port otherwise there is a confilict and the system doesn't pick up the wireless
