Question about Dell Wireless Keyboard Optical Mouse w0147
My Dell wireless mouse has developed a problem in that it does not track and skips so much that I have had to resort to using my old Logitech USB mouse. The Dell wireless has brand new fresh batteries and is being used on the same "optical friendly" surface that I have always used and no new wireless devices have been installed. I did not see anything on the computer control panel that would help me. Is this thing just simply being repair or is there something else that I could try? Thanks!
Your cursor is drifting when you - yes you - are inline (between the mouse and the Bluetooth receiver). Keep your body (hands, arms, legs, etc.) out of this transmission path and it will work fine. Your body has capacitance and this screws up the signal. Is this a poor system? You bet ya. I want to send mine back to Dell and tell them where to put it.

Could be radio interference. I tracked my similar mouse problem down to emissions from the ethernet adapter that connects over the house mains wiring.

Tips for a great answer:
Connecting a wireless mouse to your computer is a great way to reduce clutter around your workplace.
Also, it is an alternative to using your laptop's directional pad.
Wireless mice work just as well as wired mice for most computing needs.
The only detail that wireless mice lack compared to wired mice is the DPI (dots per inch) and the frequency rate, which is essential to the "fast twitch" movements in gaming.
However, most people do not need highly responsive mice; therefore, wireless mice are perfect for any other computing activity other than gaming.
Insert batteries into your mouse.
If your mouse is rechargeable, charge it in the docking station provided with the mouse.
Buy a wireless adapter that works with your mouse. If your laptop is enabled with wireless technology or Bluetooth, skip to the next step.
Install the drivers for your mouse.
Reboot the computer to apply the changes.
Power on the mouse and let the computer recognize the new hardware. If you are using a mouse that requires software to run, enable the mouse in the software that is provided to you.
Hope this helps
