Problem with USB keyboard and mouse


Hi,

After a while, my mouse become jumpy - not smooth when I move it - and the keyboard misses characters as I type. The only way to fix it is to reboot the machine.
It's annoying because I have to reboot while I'm coding all the time. Is there any know issues with USB keyboard and mouse?
I have Microsoft Fingerprint Keyboard and wireless optical mouse.

Thanks,

Eddy

check the batteries, and make sure the mouse is by the keyboard, and if the keyboard is wireless, try it with the keyboard on the computer, check if the signal stregnth is a problem.
