    ok ive been using bootcamp for 2 months now, so i was playing a game and everything was fine and then my imac shut off to install updates and when it turned back on my mouse and keyboard didnt work, i searched google and didnt find anything good except for one thing someone has the same problem as me and he said he found out the reason was cause of windows update. they both work on macosx so how do i fix on bootcamp?

    Not sure mate (some of the well informed solution providing forum members will come soon, I hope), but here's something I found for you:


    http://www.zdnet.com/blog/apple/making-apples-magic-mouse-and-wireless-keyboard-work-in-windows/5137

    from a Google search query:
    http://www.google.com/search?q=magic mouse and keyboard in bootcamp&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8

    I am using both with my bootcamp, but I honestly do not remember what I did to have the mouse/keyboard work.. Although I am sure that I did something.. Apologies.. I just can't remember :(

    I had the same problem, my magic mouse just stopped working today

    I tried but it doesnt work at all. Should I reinstall my window?

    Mate, I am really not sure... But, based on my rather limited knowledge of the computer things my general policy can be summarised in the following lines:

    When in doubt, restart.
    When the restart doesn't work, re-install.
    When the re-install doesn't work, cry and swear.
