Using a wireless mouse with a laptop is a convenient way to
avoid using the laptop's built in mouse.
Moreover, even if you use an external mouse, carrying a
wireless mouse is easier than the wired version.
Here is how to use a wireless mouse with a laptop.
Ensure that your laptop is compatible with a wireless mouse.
Most wireless mice use Bluetooth technology.
Any Bluetooth enabled laptop can connect to a Bluetooth
Unpack your mouse and insert batteries to the battery
While doing so, make sure that the positive side of the
battery is inserted into the positive niche in the compartment.
Place the mouse in a way that makes it easy for you to use
and less stressful for your fingers.
Use a wireless receiver if your laptop does not have an
built in wireless receiver (either Bluetooth or 802.11b).
It should be kept at least eight inches away from the laptop
or any other object that would cause any interference.
Insert the drivers, if any, for the mouse to function
Connect your receiver to the laptop by plugging in the
mouse's USB connector to the USB port of the laptop.
If you do not have any free USB ports, simply use an
external USB hub for more ports.
The keyboard is also paired with a wireless mouse. They both use the same USB wireless receiver. If the wireless mouse you are using is not from the set then no, you can not use the same receiver for both.
To change mouse settings in XP for left-handed users: Click Start and click Control Panel. Double click the Mouse applet. Verify that the Buttons tab is selected. Select the Switch primary and secondary buttons option is selected. Click OK.
Any Radio Shack or Best Buy for sure and even Staples and the like will have wireless devices that should help you figure out how to hook up what you have. For that matter a new set might be so inexpensive as to save you the hassle.
Ref wireless mouse. Not sure if you have a solution yet but it seems there could be 2 sources to the problem. First a weak or decaying laser. Second, something you have introduced recently that could interfere with the wireless signal eg mobile phone, another wireless device, cordless phone, telephone wires close to receiver or maybe something else. Not sure what you do if the laser is failing other than clean the lens. You might have to get it checked or try a friends mouse to see if it is better. There s also a setting than can change the sensitivity of the mouse. Have you looked at those settings.
