A Belkin Mini Wireless Optical Mouse frees you from the restriction imposed by the limit of the wire that your mouse uses to connect to your computer. The Belkin model works up to three feet away from the receiver and operates on a 27 MHz frequency. It's smaller than a regular mouse, making it easy to add it to a laptop case or desk drawer without losing much space in the process. Before you can use the Belkin Mini Wireless Optical mouse, you must install it. The receiver and the mouse should sync automatically; if they don't, you must perform the sync manually.
Press the bottom release tab on the top cover of the mouse. Insert the batteries included in the package and replace the cover.
Turn on your computer. Plug the Belkin USB receiver into a USB port on your computer. The drivers will install automatically.
Press the sync button on top of the USB receiver and then press the sync button on the bottom of the mouse to connect the two devices.
close Before you can install the Belkin mouse, remove drivers for other wireless mouse types on your computer.
If by successful installation you mean that you plugged in the USB dongle and it installed then I would suggest putting in the disc that came with your mouse and going through that installation process to make sure mouse is properly and full installed.
If that doesn't work then I would try to restart the whole computer with the USB dongle attached which will let the computer finish installing the USB driver that was installed when it was first plugged in
Would try going into the device manager in the control panel and make sure that the usb dongle is being identified correctly by windows. Also, would unplug any other usb devices so that they are not interfering.
If you have a usb extension cable try plugging it in so you can place it on a firm surface when you press the sync buttons. Have heard of some issues with activating both mouse and fob buttons at once because of difficulty in reaching the fobs sync button.
keep the dongle for possible future use. YES! you can use the built in bluetooth card on your computer, just right-click the bluetooth icon at the bottom right corner of you screen on the system tray and choose add device, then a wizard should pop-up. follow the on screen instruction (very straight forward) you might have to press the bluetooth buttons on the keyboard and mouse for the computer to locate or find the devices. then just add them up.
Hate to say this without sounded silly.. but we had these problems, and could not sync mouse with PC. THEN.. I read directions slowly, again.. and figured out.. it is the BOTTOM of the mouse we were not doing. There is a button UNDER the mouse you push.. not the bottons on top. (BOTTOM LEFT side it says). We were clicking the top, bottom of the button. Anyway.. just make sure you turn mouse over. :)
There is a button on the bluetooth dongle that needs pressing to get the mouse & keyboard operating, I think I got them to work when the little long blue light on the dongle (there is one) it flashes for a brief time when pressed. I think if the mouse or keyboard button is pressed while its flashing it picks them up. Good luck, it was very tedious, I agree.
