Wireless Keyboard and Mouse problems on new system

Hey everyone,

I recently built a new system and have been having problems with the wireless keyboard/mouse combo. They stutter after a few minutes of the system being on. Everything starts up fine, but after about 3 minutes the keyboard will begin typing repeating keys and the mouse will become jumpy and not predictable in movement. I RMA'd the first keyboard/mouse and the second one does it too, so i think i can rule that out.
Also, a wired PS/2 mouse and keyboard work fine.

I've been trying to think what could do this, but im at a loss right now.

Thanks for any input

  1. what brand is your keyboard and mouse and what OS are you using. Did you load the cd that it came with. If it is a logitech or a microsoft they should work within a few seconds after windows recognizes it, assumming that you using windows.
  2. The keyboard and mouse is a microsoft optical wireless combo v2.1 and the OS is windows xp. The system does recognize everything and i did run the cd that came with the product. Everything will work fine for 3 or 4 minutes, but then it becomes very jumpy...almost like a loss of power or some sort of interference on the frequency...

    Any thoughts appreciated.
