    You need to install the driver(s) and the software for them. What's the make/model of the wireless keyboard/mouse?

    Sounds like you may have faulty USB ports, as the mouse that came with the computer would need no drivers to be installed.

    I want to use my wireles mouse and keyboard
    The OP said he wanted to use his wirless mouse/keyboard. To my knowledge, you need drivers for wireless keyboard/mouse devices, whether they be generic drivers provided by the OS or from the supplied vendors website download section. As I suspect, the OP has a box set from a particular manufacturer, which is why they're not working as plug and play devices.

Hi Guys, so I've just finished a HTPC build and using HippoRemote on the iPhone to control Windows. Works great if I have a mouse plugged in but as soon as I remove the mouse the cursor hides itself.
