Question about Belkin F8E874 Mini Wireless Optical Mouse

1 Answer

Mouse inop. had a microsoft wired mouse installed prev.. could that be the problem?

I had a Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical installed previously and tried to replace it with this Belkin MiniWireless. The control panel sees a Samsung Mouse USB Mouse and says it's working properly. The minimouse isn't working however! I have reset it and tried all 3 USB ports and it still doesn't work. It doesn't work with the other laptop I had installed the MS Wheel Optical mouse and I'm wondering if MS has something to do with the Belkin not working right.

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated!

    HI Tom,

    Thanks for your advice... we've been gone so I have not had a chance to try very hard to fix the mouse... about to give up really.

    I have not been able to remove the old mouse from the device manager... guess I'm not smart enough.

    Niether my laptop which is running windows XP or my desk top running windows 2000 recognize the Belkin F8E874 wirless mouse. At leas the XP machine says the mouns in inoperative. The 2000 machine just sits there fat, dump and happy.

    On the laptop I use the touch pad mouse, which works fine business. On the desk top I use a non usb wheel mouse. Which also works fine business. Any ideas how I can get the Belkin mouse to work. I reall hate to remove the wheel mouse before I get the Belkin working. May be that is not possible, I don't know.

Can I use a new MS wireless mouse to replace my existing MS wireless mouse. Currently my mouse and keyboard connect together on the same wireless USB device. Could the new mouse be detected and be used...

I suppose there is a reset button on the keyboard or the software provided so I suppose it could be possible, I don't know.
I use a Microsoft Wired Keyboard...

Hi again,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me" and the repeat use of FixYa.

Interesting concern, should be pretty straightforward. Anyways, pls try to:
  • update/re-install the driver from Microsoft Download page;
  • alternately, disable the "Allow the computer to turn off..." in the Power Management tab of the USB Root Hub Properties in your Device Manager.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you again for using FixYa.
