    Thought I would be considerate and post this as the other thread (marked solved) is closed and isn't solved.

    Anyway....

    My symptoms were - wireless keyboard worked but wireless mouse didn't. Tried pressing the sync button on the mouse but to no avail.

    My fix:
    1. Take USB stick out.
    2. Take batteries out of the keyboard
    3. Plug USB back in TO A DIFFERENT SLOT. This causes windows to find the mouse and re-install drivers.
    4. Once mouse is working put batteries back in keyboard

    Worked for me.
