It should, as long as the wireless receiver recognizes the mouse. Just get a hardwire keyboard and give it a shot, should work.

There are common reasons why wireless keyboard and mouse fail to function. Here are some of the things that you should check.

For Keyboard: Try removing the batteries first then type on the keyboard for at least 10 seconds before reinsertingrt the batteries back into it. After getting the batteries back i the keyboard press Left Alt+Left Ctrl+F12 buttons at once then hold for a second. PRESS the Connect Button on Receiver without holding it then press the Connect Button on Keyboard again without holding it. Press "Esc" on the keyboard as the final step.

For Mouse: Connect Button on Receiver without holding it then press the Connect Button on Keyboard again without holding it.

Hope these tips will help!
