Pair to a Bluetooth Device (new and re-pair)
Locate the Bluetooth icon in the lower-right corner of the computer screen, and compare the status to Table 1.

Enabled - The Bluetooth adapter is ready to pair with another Bluetooth device.
Connected - The Bluetooth adapter is already connected to a Bluetooth device (if the desired device is not the one its connected to, it will have to be re-paired).
Disabled - The wireless switch is off. For information on how to turn the wireless switch on refer to the Online User's Guide.
When no icon shows the Bluetooth driver needs to be installed, refer to Dell Knowledge Base Article: "How to Download and Install the Latest Dell Wireless Bluetooth Driver"

you may need to first add a bluetooth device to ur pc/laptop.
There's usually a "synch" button on the mouse..check underneath where the batteries go..it may be larger, if built to follow the design of the mouse or it may be smaller if its "clearly a button".
You need to attach the bluetooth dongle to ur pc/laptop, then after the drivers install, press the synchchronize button on the mouse.
I think you may have to ask Dell about this. Change bios to english - if available Have you tried using the language bar? Reloading software and selecting it to use English? The keyboard will be a prob if in french. Use an external keyboard to install software? English keyboard may be available for replacement.
Yes you can get a ps2 connector to usb. They sell them at Radioshack and some Walmarts. What computer are you using the brand and model? The ps2 connector should fit into the one on the tower, unless its a really old computer.
