Wireless mice and combination mouse and Keyboards come with a driver disk. I don't think WinXP will have drivers included.

If you think you are going to connect and boot that isn't how it works. USB devices normally require you to install the drivers BEFORE connecting the device. Then WinXP should pick up on the hardware and install it.

does it recognize the device?? if so then you have to
synchronize the mouse with the receiver..... to communicate

Go to device manager and remove it, then shut down. Disconnect the mouse and reboot. After you are in WinXP then reconnect the mouse.
