Dell bluetooth wireless mouse pointer misses the mark

I have the Dell bluetooth wireless keyboard/mouse bundle.

When I point the mouse to a command, for example: when I try to close a program by pointing to the X in the top right corner, nothing happens until I move the mouse around till it finds the exact spot. In other the words the mouse just misses the mark. Sometimes even though I am pointing to a command, it will open the one below it. This problem is worse in some programs than others. New computer, Vista and all programs are Vista compatible. Any suggestions appreciated. thanks Judy

    I've been experiencing a similar problem. I'm finding that I'm unable to control the cursor with the kind of precision I experienced when the mouse was newer (mine is close to 3 years old). When I move the mouse, the cursor typically has trouble keeping up, requiring me to move the mouse around to reestablish control of the cursor. Sometimes the cursor appears to be pointing at the target, but when I click on the left mouse button nothing happens. I thought perhaps my mouse pad had worn out, so I replaced it with a new one. That doesn't seem to have helped much. The only other possibilities that occur to me is that the mouse needs to be cleaned in some way or that it has simply exceeded its life expectancy.

Hi, two points of failure that I can see on your issue. First could be the BT software, 2nd could be the BT card which is a hardware issue. My first suggestion is to go to Control Panel, then Add/Remove Programs, look for and application named SetPoint then remove it. Most likely you're probably using a DELL computer, if so go to http://www.support.dell.com/ go to Drivers and Downloads choose your correct Computer model maybe laptop or pc; then choose your correct Operating system and platform if its 32 bit or 64 bit. Next update your Chipset driver, System Utilities - Notebook System for laptops and Dell System software for pc, then update your Input device driver - Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard and mouse Bundle, then update your Quickset under Applications and Synaptics driver under Input device drivers if it's a laptop you have, after doing everything restart your pc. If all is done correctly and still won't work work contact the manufacturer to replace your Bluetooth card since it's already a hardware failure. Thanks and have a nice day! =)

Re toshiba techra 8000


Some laptops have a touch pad between the keyboard and the edge of the laptop. This works like a mouse except you slide your finger around the pad to move the mouse pointer and the buttons next to the touch pad are the left and right buttons.
Other laptops have a small round button in the middle of the keyboard which is a mini joystick and it is used to move the mouse pointer around, it will have a couple of mouse buttons at the botom edge of the keyboard.
You can connect a normal mouse to your laptop, it is mush easier than using the laptop's touch pad or mini joystick.

Check in control panel under pointing device or mouse and see if the computer realizes it has a mouse or a touch pad. You can also test the buttons and function in that modele

Dell wireless mouse and keyboard-no instructions


Most Bluetooth keyboards and mice are just Plug-n-Play and does not require any driver installation. You need to isolate the problem, please follow the steps below:

1. Make sure that the wireless adapter of your wireless KB and mouse is properly connected to the USB port of the computer.

2. Make sure that the USB ports of your computer are working.

3. Use fresh batteries for the KB and mouse.

4. After connecting the wireless dongle to the computer, turn on your KB and mouse (there should be an ON/OFF switch underneath).

5. Briefly press the connect button on the wireless dongle and then hold down the connect button underneath the mouse for five seconds and then release it.

6. Do the same steps for the KB.

Have a good day!
