Make sure the batteries are good.
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 whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud

Bud's got it. The buttons on the mouse and usb controller must be pressed at the same time and the mouse held close to the controller for them to sync.

Belkin wireless mouse won't connect on power up of PC

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.

1 Press the bottom release tab on the top cover of the mouse. Insert the batteries included in the package and replace the cover.
2 Turn on your computer. Plug the Belkin USB receiver into a USB port on your computer. The drivers will install automatically.
3 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.

I have a wireless Belkin mouse F8E825, I can't find the software to put on new acer laptop (windows 7).(used it on my desktop windows xp.

You would have to go to Belkin and ask them for a driver. Likely you might find they dont care to make one if the mouse is older. Then if you are like me you never buy a belkin mouse again.
But seriously, check with them and see if they have new drivers available for download.

Please connect the mouse to another computer to rule out if the device has failed. If it works on another system you may be dealing with a messed up driver. Please comment this posted on your test results to receive the best answer.

I have a new HP Pavilion laptop and a new Belkin wireless mouse. I have plugged in the driver and the red light is on. I have also turned on the mouse. The mouse will not move the cursor. What is wrong?...

Did you press the reset button on the bottom or inside the mouse. That resets the mouse to the usb wireless you plugged in. And, make sure the batteries are good and orientated correctly in the mouse.
