Toshiba Wireless Laser Mouse

I have a Toshiba Wireless Laser Mouse. Everytime i start up windows, the mouse is not recognised unless i reinsert the usb dongle provided with the mouse. Is there any way where i can prevent this? I have installed the relevant software, and tried searching for settings to change this but maybe im not looking in the most obvious place. Any suggestions?

    Hello

    I have exactly the same problem. Your answer does not entirely solve it. I leave the USB dongle permanently fitted but the laptop still won't recognise the mouse when I boot it up in the morning. I have to remove and re-insert the dongle for it to see the mouse. There must be another way? Doing this will wear out my USB port!

I have now found the answer to this problem. You need to wake the mouse up before turning on the PC. - Double click the left mouse button and wiggle it around on the desk, then boot up the laptop and it will recognise the mouse.

How to connect a microsoft mouse to a microsoft 1447 dongle


The thw wireless mouse is paired from fabric wirh USB dongle for same mouse. You can't connect a wireless keyboard to it because they are no different frequency. Actually it's hightly improbable that you even could connect the USB dongle of a mouse with another different mouse. Explanations is logical: presumeyou are in a big office whate another 1 users have wireless keyboards or "mice". Now, imaginge the mess if the dongle of your keyboard should control the mouse of another 9 usrs.
Now, it's competely different with bloetooth keyboards and"mice"

How to connect mouse to Toshiba laptop


First of all, I am assuming you are using a current laptop with USB connectors. For a corded mouse, insert the USB plug into a USB socket. After the computer recognizes the mouse, use the computer control panel software to set up the mouse. For a USB wireless mouse, insert the dongle into a USB socket. After the computer recognizes the dongle, use the computer control panel software to set up the mouse.

Must I keep the other mouse I already hve plugged in b4 the connection of the Logitech M-RCE95 Cordless Optical Mouse, or do I hve 2pull out the mouse usb cord straight away, 1st b4 I do anything?


Hi
Generally speaking the operating system will recognise both mice if the wireless dongle and the wired mouse are both plugged in, but I would recommend unplugging the wired mouse and plugging in the dongle for the wireless mouse before powering on the computer.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Mouse highlights everything


Your left-click button on the mouse sounds like it may be broken. A few things to try before buying a new mouse:

- If it is a wired USB mouse, unplug it from it's USB port. Wait 10 seconds and plug it back in.

- If it is a wireless mouse, unplug the small USB Dongle from it's USB port. Wait 10 seconds and reinsert the Dongle.

- If wireless, check the batteries in the mouse itself.

- Try another mouse. ( If the problem persists with a different mouse, it is a software issue and should be addressed in a new question. )

- Try another USB port. ( If the problem persists while using a different USB port, it is a software issue and should be addressed in a new question. )

Purchased new laptop and wireless mouse, first day worked great, after a week tried to use mouse again.....just not working have replaced battery no luck


I would try unplugging the usb receiver and restarting the computer.
Then plug it back in.
Sadly, with these, along with replacing the battery, that's the only option.

My trust mouse is new and it isnt working it recognises it well so the usb device works but the mouse aind working... :(


- Try using fresh batteries.
- Make sure that the switch is turned ON.
- On the USB dongle and underneath the mouse, check if you will see a small connect button. If there is, hold down the connect button on both dongle and mouse at the same time for five (5) seconds and release them both.
- Try moving the mouse.
- Make sure that there are no possible wireless interference like base of a cordless phone or any other wireless devices such as cell phone. The wireless signal of these said devices might interfere with the wireless signal of your mouse.

Have a great day!

Windows vista which USB cable do I need to use a


As far as I am aware the mouse you are talking about is NOT blue-tooth but a regular wireless mouse.

It came with a small wireless dongle that plugs into ANY regular usb port and does not need a cable.

Blue tooth does not usually use cables either as it is a wireless format but different to regular wireless

If your mouse is blue-tooth then you should ensure that your laptop or pc also has blue-tooth.

Should it not have blue-tooth then to use the mouse you would need to purchase a usb blue-tooth adapter. this is not a cable but is classified as a "dongle" you that's true !
This dongle plugs into any regular blue-tooth port on occasion windows will detect and install the required files but some blue-tooth dongles will come with a cd that you need to install.
