I have Dell XPS M2010. Windows Vista 32 bit. 350 bluetooth module The mouse connects and works well. The keybboard won't pair. I put it into discoverable mode and the three lights next to the power...


The solution is to formn a class action suit against DELL for this overpriced piece of junk. I went through 3 of them and they all failed.

DELL left these dogs out there in the market until the warrenties expired on all the M2010 machines and now they will charge you for their failure to build a solid product.

The Bluetooth Access Icon is nowhere to found in the control panel, so the manual is wrong as well.

DELL is acting irresponsble and needs to be punished. Let's form a Class Action Suit today.

Bluetooth Notebook 5000 Mouse will not connect. The green light comes on and then goes off. The bluetooth light on the laptop is on. Just changed the batteries. What to do?


You may just need to re-PAIR it. You need to press and hold the Pairing button until you get a solid blue light then it is in pairing mode, you can then discover it on your laptop and complete the pairing.

My bluetooth mouse used to connect but now it doesn't...When I press the blue button, the blue light does not blink like it used to. Is my bluetooth mouse dead? (fresh batteries, and it turns on).


Mostlikely you need to repair the mouse with the computer. open your bluetooth utility or the keyboard/mouse utility and follow the pairing instructions. this should solve your problem

Hi.
Before starting, make sure the keyboard and mouse are ON and with batteries.

Whit the PC already ON:
* The first step is to plug in the USB Bluetooth adaptor.
* Once the Bluetooth adaptor is inserted, allow Windows to install the drivers.
* Once Windows gives it the OK, the USB dongle should have a light or even a button. (If you don’t see a button the "yellow" light is the button).
* Press the USB dongle button....this will tell the dongle to start looking for a Keyboard or mouse.
* On the underside of the mouse (and keyboard) should be a a small button.
* Press the button(s) for ~5 seconds, then release.. this tells teh keyboard (or mouse) to look for a dongle.

This should show a connection between the dongle and the keyboard (or mouse).


Or
With the PC Off:
* Just connect the dongle
* Do the button sequence as described above, unit the dongle light goes “solid” again.
* Start the PC and keyboard and mouse should work perfectly.


Cheers,
Ed

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!
