Dell XPS M1530 bluetooth wireless mouse

I have had my new laptop for about a month, the mouse worked fine for about two weeks.One day it wouldn't work at all. I would cut it off, try to reconnect, nothing worked. I spent about an hour on the phone with technical assistant. After they tried everything to make it work and failed they shipped me a new mouse. I had to get on technical support again when it came it. Got it going working great after the first day it has stopped working again. All the trouble shooting I know hasn't worked.Is this a common problem. What should I do now?

Bluetooth operates on the crowded 2.4GHz spectrum. Microwave ovens, cordless phones, wireless networking equipement can all interfere with the mouse. Try moving the mouse and laptop away from any sources of possible interference and try again. Even try it out in the car as cars are great insulators.

Also it could be the surface you are using, if the surface you are using the mouse on is reflective or too smooth the sensor on the mouse will not pick up properly and maybe not at all.

Otherwise, get on the horn with Dell and get them to fix the notebook, it's probably not the mouse at all. The bluetooth chip in most laptops is on a small add-on board that is easily replaced. It could have even come loose. You may be able to access the bluetooth board by removing a small plastic panel under your battery, or under the panel covering the memory or wireless networking card. If two mice do the same thing it's probably not the mouse.

Good Luck!

Since it is a wireless bluetooth mouse, you should make sure that each time you restart your system make sure that the bluetoth is enabled nd working. Also see the battery check on the mouse. if you are having more than one USB port, make sure you try on them too. Hope to hear from you.

Thankyou

Hi, two points of failure that I can see on your issue. First could be the BT software, 2nd could be the BT card which is a hardware issue. My first suggestion is to go to Control Panel, then Add/Remove Programs, look for and application named SetPoint then remove it. Most likely you're probably using a DELL computer, if so go to http://www.support.dell.com/ go to Drivers and Downloads choose your correct Computer model maybe laptop or pc; then choose your correct Operating system and platform if its 32 bit or 64 bit. Next update your Chipset driver, System Utilities - Notebook System for laptops and Dell System software for pc, then update your Input device driver - Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard and mouse Bundle, then update your Quickset under Applications and Synaptics driver under Input device drivers if it's a laptop you have, after doing everything restart your pc. If all is done correctly and still won't work work contact the manufacturer to replace your Bluetooth card since it's already a hardware failure. Thanks and have a nice day! =)

Mouse will not work at all


Try plugging in your device then rebooting the computer. And when you plug them in does it properly install the drivers?

My dell xps one keybooard is not working


first, uninstall it completely. Change your batteries. Turn off your computer. Boot up, log on as administrator. Install the software for the keyboard, now plug it in and the add new hardware wizard should see it. If that doesn't work take it back to the place of purchase for an exchange. It is a hardware issue at that point.

Dell wireless mouse and keyboard-no instructions


Most Bluetooth keyboards and mice are just Plug-n-Play and does not require any driver installation. You need to isolate the problem, please follow the steps below:

1. Make sure that the wireless adapter of your wireless KB and mouse is properly connected to the USB port of the computer.

2. Make sure that the USB ports of your computer are working.

3. Use fresh batteries for the KB and mouse.

4. After connecting the wireless dongle to the computer, turn on your KB and mouse (there should be an ON/OFF switch underneath).

5. Briefly press the connect button on the wireless dongle and then hold down the connect button underneath the mouse for five seconds and then release it.

6. Do the same steps for the KB.

Have a good day!

Mouse only works for a few seconds and then stops.


have you changed the batteries recently? Wireless mice seem to eat batteries faster. I have a Dell wireless mouse. It will work fine for months and then nothing. That's when I know to change out the batteries. If your batteries are fresh, make sure they are seated in their slots securely.

XPS One Keyboard's Characters not functioning


Try to re-sync the keyboard to the computer. Here’s the procedure:
1) Turn the computer on.
2) Turn on the keyboard
3) Press the sync button on the rear of your computer’s left speaker.
4) Press the sync button on the keyboard. ( I believe it’s on the bottom of keyboard)

The sync button has a symbol next to it, (2 arrows going in clockwise direction).
Ensure that the keyboard battery has not run low.

If that doesn’t work, look for a Bluetooth icon in the lower right hand corner of your desktop and double click on it to open the Bluetooth configuration utility. See if there’s a configuration file for the keyboard. If there is, delete it and then re-detect Bluetooth devices.
Hope this helps.
