Microsoft bluetooth laser mouse 8000 , worked for about 6 months, now will not connect to the dongle on my PC or to my bluetooth enabled laptop. I have changed and charged the battery. I have pushed the reset button a million times. I have tried the reset 15/5/5 press sequence and nothing happens. The blue tooth devices shows it, but will not connect. And the system says it is working properly...??? Ya cept it doesn't do anything. Any ideas?

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.
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.
If there is no light on the Bluetooth keyboard it means there is a problem with it.
If the Bluetooth keyboard is not responding try to do the following:
1. Change batteries 2. Go to control panel 3. Click Bluetooth Icon 4. Delete the Bluetooth Keyboard 5. Click on Add new wireless device 6. Press the pairing device on the keyboard 7. Bluetooth keyboard will be detected 8. Follow the onscreen instructions
Hope this helps, Tried it several times and it works perfectly
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.
