POS Dell work computer with windows 2000

I got a brand new work computer to take home to use. For some reason, the stingy company i work for wont upgrade to a newer OS and still has windows 2000 NT on every computer they buy even though they came preloaded with XP.

Anyways, so i buy a nice logitech wave wireless keyboard and mouse to use with it. I have my home computer and office computer connected to one monitor/keyboard/mouse thru a KVM switch. Everything works perfectly with my home computer but when i switch over to the work Dell computer, the keyboard and mouse dont work.

Even if i bypass the KVM switch and plug the wirless receiver directly to the dell, still nothing. So i figured maybe windows 2000 doesnt have a driver for it, but i cant find anything online for windows 2000 and i cant download anything to my work computer anyways since i dont have administrator logon/options. Also, if i use the cheapy dell wired mouse/keyboard, it doesnt work through the KVM switch. It only works when directly connected to the Dell.

Any clue to what i should do to get this pos to work?

Is it YOUR puter or works puter?

Think you need to format/reinstall your OS(XP), read this first.

You can't install anything unless you have Admin rights - this would also include plug & play drivers for that mouse and keyboard.

Talk your IT guys into granting you Admin rights on that box...then you'll be fine. Otherwise it's never going to work.
