Step

Turn off your computer, and unplug your current keyboard and mouse.

Step

Plug the receiver into an open USB port. If you don't have an open port and your computer has PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports, plug the receiver in there, keeping the colors matched: green for the mouse and purple for the keyboard.

Step

Remove the cover of the mouse, and insert the two AA batteries that came with the kit. Remove the battery cover of the keyboard, and insert the two AAA batteries in the slot; then replace both covers.

Step

Turn the computer back on.

Step

Establish communication between the receiver and the devices. Push the connect button on the receiver and then the connect button on the mouse. Then push the connect button on the receiver again, followed by the connect button on the keyboard.

Step

Test to be sure that both the keyboard and mouse work. If they don't, repeat Step 5 for the device that doesn't work.

Step

Put the disc in the optical drive, and run the setup program by following the prompts to take full advantage of the capabilities of the keyboard and mouse.
