I am glad I purchased my Toshiba Satellite because I have learned to never purchase another Toshiba laptop. Their support is useless and my laptop has been in the shop twice.

This, the latest problem with my dear Toshiba was created from purchasing a USB wireless mouse that is not recognized by the device (yes it appears in device manager as any USB device is expected to, but the Vista OS does not recognize it). Toshiba support says it is "beyond their scope" to assist me with the problem.

The mouse works on all my other laptops and desktops when tested. I think their BIOS is buggy. I finally got mine to work by taking these steps.

1) unplug the power chord
2) unlatch (disconnect) and replace the battery pack
3) install the USB dongle transmitter on the left rear USB port
4) push the power ON button
5) now you have about 5 seconds after the blue "Satellite" LED comes on to sync the dongle and mouse by pushing the buttons - you must sync on both buttons before the Toshipa "inovation ....." boot-up screen appears

This works every time for me and unless you break the connection or power down the laptop, the mouse keeps working, even when the mouse goes to sleep from none-use. I also found I had to plug the USB dongle in the left USB and toward the back of the machine.

I hope this helps and a note to potential customers, give their support a call and ask a few simple questions to see what you think before buying anything from them. I'll let everyone form their own opinion.

Choose the option "let windows detect the driver ' or something to that effect. Or you can manually select the 'windows' folder in the c: drive and let windows search for an appropriate driver there...

I have a presario 2500 and was having trouble with my Genius Traveler 600 cordless mouse. The problem was eventually fixed by choosing a different USB port. For further discussion (since I don't come here often) you may write to me.

How do i connect the mouse with my computer please?

Connect the USB to the port of your PC. Now the PC must detect the new device and install the device to your PC unless the OS is of older version. Now the mouse which has the battery inserted will be detected on the PC.
If this wont work you must download the drivers and install them from the microsoft website .. optical mouse drivers link for your OS.

Batteries ran down in the optical mouse. I put in new batteries and now I can't get the mouse to work. it's frozen

Remove the battery off and keep aside from within the mouse. Now disconnect the USB - optical detector to the PC. Shut down the PC . Replace battery once again and power the PC, then connect the USB to see if the mouse is detected.
If not remove off installed software of the optical device and reinsert once again so that it gets detected.

Can I use a new MS wireless mouse to replace my existing MS wireless mouse. Currently my mouse and keyboard connect together on the same wireless USB device. Could the new mouse be detected and be used...

I suppose there is a reset button on the keyboard or the software provided so I suppose it could be possible, I don't know.
I use a Microsoft Wired Keyboard...
But Best of luck.

Optical usb mouse cursor frozen

If it is a USB wireless then your operating system will not need any additional drivers. The USB port takes care of that. Windows XP and Vista support almost 100% of any USB wireless mouse including Logitech..I own three of them, never had a problem. The only problem would be the USB port itself. Which is a totally different subject. You can still also go into control panel and make mouse adjustments if needed.

Please rate solution.
