I had the same problem with my compaq armada e500. I've been using an external PS/2 mouse for over a year and just now fixed the built-in touchpad buttons. In the mouse settings applet in control panel there is a setting for click speed. In Win 2k there is a little jack-in-the-box test icon. I moved the click speed slider to the slowest setting and my mouse came back like magic. I've searched and found lots of people with this issue, I can't say this is the only solution, but it certainly was easy. Of course, first I downloaded all the original COMPAQ Armada e500 notebookPC touchpad software from http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=96717&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=96231&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=181

BTW, I appreciate the workarounds offered by posters here and on other tech support sites, but when someone wants to fix something, it doesn't help to say, "Oh, just give it up and spend money to get around the problem."

If you are still out there, dave, Instead of a USB hub, may I suggest (if you have the resources) picking up a PCMCIA card with at least two more USB ports? They are less than $100 and it really saved my neck when my onboard USB died. Don't be offended, but just in case you haven't noticed you have them, the slots are on the right side of your E500, just to the left of the headset and mic ports. The e500 has two slots and the cards come in different sizes for different laptops, but ours is (luckily) pretty standard. I bought my card at BestBuy.

You could do this with a usb hub, where you can plug up to 4 devices. I recommend a powered hub, to compensate for device signal issues. Go to google, and search for USB hubs..there are many good ones.

got backup?

How to connect to laptop


Using a wireless mouse with a laptop is a convenient way to avoid using the laptop's built in mouse.

Moreover, even if you use an external mouse, carrying a wireless mouse is easier than the wired version.
Here is how to use a wireless mouse with a laptop.

Ensure that your laptop is compatible with a wireless mouse.
Most wireless mice use Bluetooth technology.
Any Bluetooth enabled laptop can connect to a Bluetooth wireless mouse.
Unpack your mouse and insert batteries to the battery chamber.
While doing so, make sure that the positive side of the battery is inserted into the positive niche in the compartment.

Place the mouse in a way that makes it easy for you to use and less stressful for your fingers.
Use a wireless receiver if your laptop does not have an built in wireless receiver (either Bluetooth or 802.11b).
It should be kept at least eight inches away from the laptop or any other object that would cause any interference.

Insert the drivers, if any, for the mouse to function properly.
Connect your receiver to the laptop by plugging in the mouse's USB connector to the USB port of the laptop.
If you do not have any free USB ports, simply use an external USB hub for more ports.

How do i connect my wireless i.t.works optical mouse model MWO03 to my eee laptop windows 7?


Follow these steps :
1.
Check to see if your laptop supports wireless technology (Bluetooth, 802.11 or other). If it doesn't, you will need a wireless receiver. If it does, verify that your laptop is compatible with your wireless mouse, which could use either Bluetooth technology or a radio signal.
2.
Unpack your mouse and open its battery compartment. The wireless mouse won't receive any power from the laptop, making batteries necessary.
3.
Add new batteries to the compartment. Make sure that the + battery end is inserted into the + niche in the compartment.
4.
Place the mouse where it is easy to use and least stressful on your fingers.
5.
Place your wireless receiver appropriately if your laptop doesn't support wireless technology. The receiver should be kept at least 8 inches away from the laptop or any other object that would cause any interference.
6.
Place the wireless receiver anywhere from 8 inches to 6 feet from the mouse.
7.
Insert the driver CD into your laptop and follow the instructions to install the software for running the mouse.
8.
Connect your receiver to the laptop by plugging in the mouse's USB connector to the USB port of the laptop. If you do not have a free USB port, simply use an external USB hub for more ports.

Yes.

Most wireless mice come with a small wireless USB dongle that you plug into a USB port.

If your laptop supports bluetooth, you can get a bluetooth mouse, and you wont need to plug anything into your USB port.

Have a look at the logitech nano mouse.
