Yes, it can be done. just purchase the compaq mouse and plug it into your system. almost all mouses are plug and play. so you dont need a driver for it since you are not running old version of windows operating system.

Should be an easy swap (esp if it's USB). Simply remove one and insert the new one from the USB port.

If it's an older style PS/2 port, you'll want to power down the machine first, make the swap and boot up.

Shouldn't require software beyond what Windows has built in (assuming you're running Windows).

How do i install a wireless mouse


Kathy, There are two items that you have. A wireless mouse and a sensor for it. The sensor is attached to the PC while the mouse stays with you. And of course you must have received a CD with the drivers in it. Insert the CD in the drive and let auto read and install the drivers. Once done, then insert the sensor and allow the Windows to detect and load the drivers. After that happens then only you would be able to use your mouse. Please follow these steps.

Number key pad giving symbols rather than the numeric number


If you haven't installed the software which goes with this wireless mouse, then it's time you did.

1 - First, remove the mouse and replace it wih a normal, wired mouse.
2 - Restart your PC
3 - Insert the CD or DVD which contains the Wireless mouse software, from Micosoft.
4 - If you don't have it, download it from www.microsoft.com/hardware - at this location, look for the software and download it.
5 - Install the wireless mouse software only and, when it tells you to do so, remove the wired mouse and replace it with the wireless mouse from Microsoft, along with the transceiver.
6 - Now, run the Microsoft software and choose the keys you want when you press certain buttons.
7 - As you get use to the software, you will also get used to the way the buttons work with the mouse's buttons and what they will do for you.
8 - When you have gotten used to what the buttons do, then you can start working alone, without the software.
9 - It will all become like second nature to you as you use it more and more.

Enjoy!

Mouse completely dead


Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done when ever you change batteries or glitch. Hope this helps you. Bud

Microsoft Wireless Mouse and Windows Vista


I'm having pretty much the same problem with my Microsoft Wireless 4000 mouse and my hp-compaq 8510p laptop. If I shut my machine down, or restart, my mouse no longer works. I have to uninstall/reinstall the Intellipoint software. The synaptics touch pad continues to work, but the mouse fails.
