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?
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.

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" USB Dongle for Microsoft Wireless Keyboard and Mouse 5000
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.
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
I'm not sure can I help you, I had same issue with logitech, I couldn't solve issue, until I found program (app) that had option to connect them, search on hp for application. Logitechs one is called SetPoint.
no, unless if your mouse is a bluetooth one you could on the internet search the internet and find a bluetooth USB dongle, buy it and open it`s software if it comes whith any and search for bluetooth devices and select your mouse
- 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.
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 usbblue-toothadapter. 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.
