It has probably lost its Blue Tooth connection. I will attempt this one from memory...

The easiest thing is to push the connect button on the mouse, usually on bottom somewhere and see if it picks it back up.

If that does not work, the connection to the computer might have gotten reset.

If you look in the bottom right of your screen and see a little Blue icon (should say bluetooth if you hover your cursor over it), right-click on that and choose properties. This should bring up a window with a lot of tabs, look for one that says "Devices" (or something similar). You should see the mouse listed as a device, and connected. If not, you can choose to add a device.

Go through the steps to add the device, when it asks if your device is discoverable press the connect button on the mouse again so it can be found. It should then prompt you for a passkey to sync the devices, this should be labeled on the bottom of the mouse somewhere, typically it is pretty small. It is probably 0000 (four zeros). Once it goes through all those steps, the mouse should show up in the devices and hopefully should work.

Hope this helps!

I have a Dell Studio Laptop. I have to move the curser at the right hand corner to scroll the page?

Find your way into control panel and check mouse settings I believe the middle mouse button is adjusted there. The details are different with each brand of mouse but this should point you in the right direction.

Driver for Dell BT Travel Mouse

If it is a dell mouse, it should automatically work after a few things. Simply locate the button on your mouse to power it on, open your bluetooth settings on your computer and scan. It will then add the drivers as a HID (human interface device). If that fails go to, search for drivers & downloads under support and search for the drivers & documentation.

When I move my finger along the Touchpad it does not do what it's supposed. The pointer either doesn't move or responds in a delayed fashion. I have a dell studio 1735 laptop. Thanks.

Try updating first the touchpad drivers from the support website . If updating wont fix the problem try adjusting the mouse sensitivity to your preferred settings on control panel. Hope this helps

I can't operate the mouse. its not working.

Install fresh batteries, turn it on and make sure your bluetooth dongle is installed and active. If you have never paired this mouse with it's receiver, then you will have to put them both into pairing mode, and once paired you should have no problems.

Logitec V270 bluetooth mouse freezes

I found no solution but plenty of similar complaints on the V270 on other than just Vista machines. I will suggest finding another model mouse and check it for Vista compatibility before buying.
I am using a Logitech M-RBB_DEL4 mouse made for Dell, it's bluetooth and works flawlessly on my XP machine along with the keyboard it came with. I will try the one I just ordered on my Vista machine when the BT Keyboard and Mouse arrive.
