Default Keyboard Problems

Hey guys, my father purchased a bluetooth wireless keyboard and mouse set to go with his old computer (about 4-5 years old at LEAST if not more like 7 or 8) anyways, it says it should work on a P II with at least 233 Mhz and 128 MB of ram, he has a P III of 1 GHz and 512 ram so it is not a hardware issue. Here is the problem:

He installs all the drivers and it correctly sees and installs the bluetooth mouse and keyboard, BUT it refuses to allow them to work, even if we remove the wired keyboard/mouse it just will NOT work, this is our second set to try.

Now I have never used bluetooth, so what could the problem be? (it is Windows XP also)

Thanks guys.

Oh and can anyone suggest any cheap (80-130 max) wireless keyboards with wireless (non of the IR things that have to be in view sight of the keyboard/mouse) that would work with his setup?

No it does not, but I could get an adapter for it.
