Re: bluetooth

Normal 0 Go to Control Panel and click on Sound.
Next click Bluetooth Devices.
Click Add button, lower left corner of the Bluetooth Devices window.
Insure batteries are installed.
Press the Connect Button on the Keyboard (Usually located on the under side of your keyboard) this allows Windows to see the keyboard so you can pair the keyboard to the computer.
On the computer choose My Device Is Set Up and Ready To Be Found.
Click NEXT.
The keyboard should appear in the Add Bluetooth Device Wizard Window.
Select your Keyboard and click Next.
When prompted, select Choose a Passkey For Me and click Next.
Windows will generate and display a Passkey.
Type the Passkey specified on the Bluetooth Keyboard
(do not use the keyboards keypad when typing the passkey)
No charters will appear on the monitor when typed, but if you make a mistake, you can backspace.
You must enter the Passkey within 30 seconds.
If you don’t enter the Passkey within 30 seconds, click Back and click Next again.
Once the Passkey is entered, the Keyboard should be connected to the computer.
Finish and follow any on screen instructiond.

Hope this helps. Bud

Just have the mouse- wont work. have batteries in, have receiver plugged in. computor say working correctly. but isnt working

Try this;
Go to (>) Start>Control Panel>Bluetooth
A window will open showing you all the wireless devices that are already recognised by your computer. If the icon for this mouse is shown there then highlight it and click 'Remove Wireless Device'. Then click "Yes" (Sometimes removing a device and then reinstalling it fixes the problem)


Click on Add Wireless Device ( a new window will open and the computer will search for the device. When it finds the mouse an icon will appear. Highlight the icon and click Next
The computer will load the driver for the mouse.
Once this is done the mouse should be working OK.

Also check this:
Go to (>) Start>Control Panel>Bluetooth
Click on "Bluetooth Settings"
Place a tick in the box next to "Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer > Apply > OK

I have lost my usb wireless adapter for my Belkin F5l017usbblk

The best route to take is to obtain another adapter for the mouse since it was wireless. However, if the mouse and your computer have Bluetooth capabilities then you can connect by Bluetooth.

Laser mouse

NOTE: This mouse never came with any software in the first place.

To get the mouse to work again proceed as follows:
Open Control Panel > Bluetooth Devices>Select VPG-BMS33 >Bluetooth Settings>Options> place a tick in the "Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer">Apply>OK then close the open window.
The mouse should now work.
If this does not fix the problem then try this:
Go to Control Panel click on Bluetooth devices. Select VGP-BM133 (your mouse) then select Remove Wireless Device. After it has been removed NOW Select Add Wireless Device ( your computer will search for the mouse) When it finds it and it appears in the window, select it and then select Next. The computer will load the drivers for it and after you close the window the mouse should work.
Note often when my mouse has stopped working it has been because the batteries were flat and all the above fixes would be to no avail.

Hi, I have an Logitech cordless optical mouse M/N: M-RCQ142, P/N:810-000452. I am trying for the 1st time to connect it to my new laptop running windows 7 and when I push the connect button on the bottom...

That is a Bluetooth Mouse. Your computer MUST have a bluetooth adapter or capability (Usually a laptop). You will use the Bluetooth control panel (not the add hardware wizard) to search for this device.

I have a Compaq computer and keyboard and a wired Micro Innovations (mini) mouse. I also have a Micro Innovations wireless optical mouse. How do I hook up the wireless to work?

For the wireless mouse to work with your computer, make sure that it has a bluetooth capability in it. This is how your computer will communicate with your wireless mouse. If it does not have bluetooth, see if your wireless mouse came with a bluetooth dongle. If it does, connect the dongle, download the driver and the pc should detect your wireless mouse.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hope this helps!

Does each mouse have a connector to pc? I have an HP @MG-0637T that was given to me without any connection (usb port). Does it require one?

Yes of course it has connector. There are two types of connection, wired and wireless connection. Since your mouse is wireless, it needs a bluetooth connection between your computer. Make sure that the computer you will be using has a bluetooth capable function.

Computer will not start after hooking up mouse

Try disconnecting the mouse and start again, I suspect a driver issue but with windows Vista that should not happen. But remove the mouse boot up, and try installing the drivers for the mouse before you connect it the the computer. This is a unusual case since Vista normal would detect the drivers automatically for you. Give me more info on this problem.
