I was wondering if the mouse I have is compatible with my new Vista operating system. I have the wireless mouse that is bluetooth, but nothing I do seems to work. I have bought everything to make it work, but it still doesn't.Is there an update for the software that I can get so it will work.
Please check up the cell status. If it is to be replaced please replace and check up Vista if any software update for wireless mouses is available. and give me the model of the mouse so that further help may be provided

The wireless dongle plugged into the computer is on a specific frequency and you wont be able to peer it with a different mouse. However if it is a Bluetooth and not wireless, you can pair another Bluetooth mouse no problem.
Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(making a program work with windows 7)
Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is
for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like
you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from
other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before
installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use
"troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program
installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will
allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run.
Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:))
install mouse software then restart
right click my computer properties
hardware and then devices
then right click mouse driver and click update driver
if mouse does'nt work after that then it won't be compatible
I found no solution but plenty of similar complaints on the V270 on other than just Vista machines. I will suggest finding another model mouse and check it for Vista compatibility before buying. I am using a Logitech M-RBB_DEL4 mouse made for Dell, it's bluetooth and works flawlessly on my XP machine along with the keyboard it came with. I will try the one I just ordered on my Vista machine when the BT Keyboard and Mouse arrive.
If your mouse manufacturer does not supply a driver for Vista you are pretty much out of luck for now. Vista is radically different from previous Windows operating systems and some hardware manufacturers are having a hard time adapting to it. If you have to have the mouse I would suggest you switch back to Windows XP till working drivers are released.
