The mouse keeps getting erased from the Bluetooth Devices Menu
I?m using an IBM t42p laptop with a built-in Bluetooth radio which worked fine for several weeks with this mouse.
For some reason, now the mouse is detected by the computer, when I add it in the Bluetooth Devices Menu, but it is deleted from there immediately.
Meanwhile clicking the mouse?s buttons lights the relevant led in the computer?s dashboard, meaning that the computer detects the mouse.
The result is that the computer probably detects the mouse but I can?t use it.

The AMBO4US is a Bluetooth mouse. Many laptops have bluetooth capability built in. If you're does not, you need to purchase an inexpensive USB Bluetooth adapter. These can be picked up at any local electronics retailers such as Best Buy or Fry's. You can also order one online at Newegg.com or other similar sites.
If you're laptop has BT support onboard, then you simply need to "pair" the mouse with it. In the task tray (area near the clock in Windows" there should be a symbol that looks similar to an hourglass. Right-click on this symbol to bring up a menu. While this menu may vary, you're looking form something along the lines of "connect device", "search devices", "pair devices", etc. Once you've found it, a wizard should guide you throught eh steps needed to pair the mouse to your laptop.
<p>Want a better keyboard and mouse get? Look in the Bluetooth
receiver. Receivers can be internal (the motherboard) or external (USB).
Bluetooth signals span of 33 meters or 10 meters, so a mouse and keyboard
should be able to work anywhere in this area, while the receiver is not blocked
and there is no interference. <br />
<p>1. Find your Bluetooth receiver. Each computer is different.
Laptops have a small round recipient, either on the side or front of the
notebook base. Desktop computers, indoor or outdoor antenna or Bluetooth
"dongle" that plugs into a USB port. Check your manual if necessary. <br />
<p>2. Place your keyboard and mouse to the side when an
aluminum casing. Newton Peripherals recommend this step because before 2009
most Bluetooth receivers were on the side of notebook computers, and the cases
of aluminum and magnesium blocking Bluetooth signals. Newer laptops have one
receiver in front of the cabinet, allowing for better reception. <br />
<p>3. Avoid placing the mouse and keyboard directly to your
desktop computer. The components built in front of the computer can block or
interrupt the Bluetooth signal, so put your mouse and keyboard on the side or
at an angle to the computer. <br />
<p>4. Interference check and surface. Bluetooth uses radio
waves and FM radios can interfere with the signal. Make sure the devices are
not turned FM. Make sure you're not the keyboard and mouse on a metal surface
or reflective surfaces because both can interfere with transmission. <br />
Wireless mice usually work via radio frequencies commonly referred to as
RF.this is also the case with bluetooth technology.so if your mouse is a bluetooth mouse you may need to run the software to make the mouse communicate with your PC.another issue is pairing (coordinating your mouse's transmitter with your mouse's receiver. It
requires both parts to operate on the same frequencies, usually by using
the same identification code. Pairing takes place to try to eliminate
interference. Some devices automatically pair both devices at start up;
others need to be manually paired by entering the same codes on both devices.once both devices are paired they will generally communicate with each other.best of luck.
You didn't list an operating system but as I have a 6930 with Vista, I can give you what I know based on mine. If you go to Control Panel - Bluetooth Devices, you will find options to add bluetooth devices and a settings button for devices you have added. However, the 6930 does not come with bluetooth built-in, just the capability to turn it on and off. If your mouse did not come with a bluetooth adapter for the computer, you'll have to get one separately to use your mouse.
Please press ctrl+Alt+Del simultaneously and the task manager will be opened up.There you will get the option to shut down.
If the task manager itself is not openeing up then please press and hold the power button for 10 sec and it willlose then you may restart the machine in safe mode and restore it to a previous config.
0. Do you HAVE bluetooth? - there is a bluetooth light over the keyboard (of course probably not lit) - there is a bluetooth identifier on the bottom of the laptop - the FN+5 key brings up a menu of (possibly, wireless) and Bluetooth.
0.1 if NOT then you need to ADD a bluetooth USB adapter
Usage: 1. Use to synchronize a PIM or cell phone or other DATA connection - This should be fine; you need to solve (0) first (that you HAVE the hardware) then the driver, then have it running
2. Use a bluetooth headset to listen to audio. - this you can *NOT* do with the default IBM bluetooth stack - I tried, an "audio adapter" for the bluetooth was simply not supplied by IBM. It would require changing to some non-IBM bluetooth stack, and I chose not to do that so never got a bluetooth headset working with my T41.
Did you seperately setup the mouse? Even if you have, go into the Bluetooth preferences under System Preferences. Select the mouse & delete it. Setup a "New Bluetooth Device" and select "Mouse." Be sure to press the Reset button for 2-3 seconds to get the mouse into "Discoverable" mode. Your Mac will then setup the mouse automatically.
If this does not work, the Bluetooth chip in the mouse may be defective.
