Microsoft Wireless devices giving you issue? Screensaver doesn’t pops up?

February 13th, 2007 by Jabez Gan [MVP]

There is an issue when you have a Microsoft wireless devices and Windows XP/Vista’s Screensaver doesn’t work. Does that sound familiar to all of you hardcore Microsoft hardware fans?

Wait no more as Microsoft has released a patch to fix this issue.

From Jason Tsang’s [MVP for Media Center] blog:

My contact at Microsoft reported the following to me:

If you have your 27 Mhz wireless device connected to the system when you go to Windows Update, it will give you a HID update that corrects the problem where the screen savers don’t work with our 27 Mhz wireless products plugged in. This will fix it on both Vista and XP.

You will see this on Windows/Microsoft Update in the ‘Hardware, Optional’ category if you have your Microsoft 27Mhz Wireless device plugged into the USB port (27Mhz wireless devices basically mean any keyboard/mouse product that doesn’t use Bluetooth). It will show up as ‘HID Non-User Input Data Filter’ from Microsoft.

For those of you who are wondering, the update consists of four files.

  • NuidFltr.inf
  • NuidFltr.sys (v
  • WdfCoInstaller01005.dll (v 1.5.6000.0)

Hopefully this update will fix the issues that some of you have been having.
