How do I know if my laptop is compatible for a wireless mouse ?

Q: How do I know if my laptop is compatible for a wireless mouse ?

I'm going to the store today to try to find a wireless mouse for my laptop for gaming .. There doesn't seem to be any ports on my laptop compatible with the wireless mouse I currently have ... I have a Logitech wireless mouse..[not sure of exact model].. it does not have a USB signal device .. It has green and pink circular connectors which I used for my desktop comp along with the wireless keyboard ...

I'm thinking maybe I have some kind of Bluetooth in my laptop, and there may be a wireless mouse I can purchase that is compatible with my laptop's Bluetooth? But my question is, how do I find out if my laptop even has this so that I know what to look for at the store?
It's a new laptop .. an HP Entertainment PC with Vista .. So I don't see why it would be impossible to connect a wireless mouse to it ...
Thanks in advance to anyone kind enough to help me out

From the way it looks, you'll have to keep your hands on it fully to use it.
Not the way I do like I'll rest my hand on my mouse pad and use 1 or 2 fingers for the buttons.

After using it without problems for over a year, my wireless mouse stopped working on my laptop a few weeks ago. I changed the batteries, still nothing. I figured it was time for a new mouse so I bought one today, installed it, checked for updated drivers, etc. Still nothing. My computer is showing that the device is installed correctly, not sure what to do next. Windows 7, Toshiba laptop. I disconnected the mosue, uninstalled the drivers, rebooted the computer and reconnected the mouse. Drivers reinstalled automatically but mouse still won't work. Any ideas?

What Bastille security researcher Marc Newlin discovered was this. If you can send out a wireless signal that pretends to be a wireless mouse, most wireless USB dongles will happily latch onto it -- no questions asked. Then, you can have that fake wireless mouse pretend to be a wireless keyboard -- and start controlling someone else's computer.

With a laptop and a cheap wireless USB antenna called a Crazyradio, Newlin found he could do that from up to 200 meters away. Of course, you can't easily see someone's laptop screen from that far out, but that doesn't mean the hack isn't dangerous. A sequence of keyboard shortcuts is enough to wipe a hard drive -- or open a browser, navigate to a website, download malware and install it on a computer.








Many of the dongles that come with mice and keyboards from Logitech, Microsoft, Amazon, Dell, HP, Lenovo and Gigabyte are at risk. Here's a list of the affected devices that Bastille has found so far.

A:Use a wireless mouse? This $15 hack could compromise your laptop

Great, my keyboard and mouse are vulnerable. Thankfully UAC with password prevents serious attacks.
An attacker could remotely download malware, but without admin rights and scripting, he can not do much.
I have seen some strange behaviour lately, a browser started by itself and other things like it, maybe it is related.

EDIT: Thankfully Logitech provide firmware update, so users do not have to buy a new device like with other brands.
But it is a bit complicated, they say to simply update it, but it does not work, the firmware update button is greyed out.

You have to download and install Unifying Software.

Then download the firmware update and run it (I put it into the same folder).

Hi, everyone,

I just bought a wireless lap top mouse on Ebay and I am starting to regret that I did. The package does not have a model # or name but after some search I found that it was made by Tonzo Industrial Co.,Ltd. It appears to me, and this is just a guys but I believe this company is no longer in business as their site is down and the contact email is a hotmail address. I'm not going to email a hotmail address. I am including a link so that you can see what it looks like. http://tonzo168.en.busytrade.com/products/info/710089/Wireless_Optical_Mouse.html

Here's the problem - simply put - it doesn't work. It worked at first and then suddenly it would no longer move the cursor. I have done everything I could find in trouble shooting of other wireless mice. Including holding the button underneath the mouse, holding the button on the receiver, holding them both at the same time (to sync them) Checking properties in Device Manager (plug and play). Rebooting etc etc. The batteries are fine. Sometimes I can get it to move and inch and then it will stop again. I have taken the batteries out as well and reinstalled them. I've also tried several different surfaces with it. I don't want to spend the money to send it back as it was cheap in the first place. I think I might just buy a non wireless mouse for this laptop. This is too much pain for a company computer. Thanks for any help in advance.

Ok, so here is my issue.
I have a logitech M325 wireless mouse that has worked perfectly fine for a while....until all of the sudden it stopped responding. So I replaced batteries (which did nothing), then went ahead and got a new mouse. When I plugged that one in, there was no response either . So I got my friends wireless mouse (which has been working fine on his computer) and plugged it into mine, which, no surprise, didn't work. When I gave him his mouse back, he was shocked to find that it no longer worked on his computer either!! I am a PC gamer and could really use some help!!

Hi, I'm new here and I really need some help with my laptop.
I have a Dell Inspiron 6400, running Windows XP Media Center Edition (I've had the laptop for almost 3 years) and recently I've been having problems with my wireless mouse, the laptop's keyboard and touch pad.
Recently (since last Tuesday) whenever I use my laptop's keyboard it lags very badly. It sometimes doesn't pick up letters and to type anything without missing letters I have to hold down a letter for a few seconds. Also my laptop's touch pad lags very badly as well. And lastly my wireless mouse lags, nowhere near as bad as the touch pad (a short pause every 2-3 seconds), but it's enough to be annoying, but the wireless keyboard is absolutely fine.

I've already done a few things, I've checked to see if any processes are using a lot of the CPU (none are), there's no unusual processes running either, I ran a virus scan and it found nothing, I ran chkdsk (/p and /r, neither found anything), and I replaced the ntoskrnl.exe file in my system32 folder (I was randomly getting errors saying that it was corrupt or missing when I turned on my laptop, but I think that fixed it), I've also plugged in a wired mouse in to my laptop and got the same lag as the wireless one.

Can anyone help me with this? I really need help

Thanks
 

A:Wireless mouse lag and laptop keyboard and touch pad lag

Can't anyone help me?

Here's a little update.
The lag with the wireless mouse is gone, but the lag with everything else is still there.
I had to repair my windows install because I was randomly getting an error at start up saying that windows couldn't start because the ntoskrnl.exe file was missing or corrupted. Then it would only come up with a screen asking if I wanted to start safe mode, start windows normally, etc.
It came up with the ntoskrnl.exe error came up again after the repair, but it can start up now.
Please, someone help.

Our mini-size wireless Microsoft Mouse has been in use with our laptop for six months or longer with no issues other than an occasional battery change. Last night it stopped working all together, despite a laptop reboot, et al. I ended up plugging in my Microsoft optical wired mouse from my office PC and that is working fine.

Just to check, I plugged the receiver for the wireless mouse into my PC and the lil' bugger is working fine there, but still won't work on the laptop.

Does this make any sense to anyone?

The laptop is running via a Netgear wireless network card, the machine is running fine for the most part, I see nothing out of sorts on a HijackThis scan, the Avira antivirus scans have been clean, and yet the wireless mouse won't work on the laptop but will on the desktop PC.

Any ideas would be appreciated!
 

A:Solved: Wireless Mouse won't work on laptop, but does on PC?

my idea is that after time files can corrupt and so a file in your drivers for it may have corrupted what i reccomend is plug both the mouse's in and use ur wired one to go to device manager look under mice and other pointing devices remove that driver and remove both mice then plug in the receiver again and it should auto re install the driver. this may work or it may not depends if its something more indepth. as to it working on ur pc when u plugged it in it installed the drivers new so it would work but if the drivers are corrupt on your laptop then it wouldent.

Yesterday, after restarting my PC to finish updates from Windows, and installations from Autodesk and MATLab, my keyboard, touch pad and wireless mouse stopped working.After checking the drivers, I found that the keyboard and mouse drivers had a code 32. So I did a system restore before all the updates. Did nothing for the drivers.I tried uninstalling, updating the drivers; didn't work.Then I used CCleaner to clean up registry errors. No changes.Next, I went into the registry and deleted the UpperFilter values for the keyboard and mouse drivers. Code 32 was gone for HID keyboard driver and the HID mouse driver. But now the ps/2 keyboard driver and the synaptics smbus driver now had a code 10.After removing and reconnecting my wireless mouse's usb, I noticed that fixed drivers come and go with it, so I tried to find the drivers for the mouse to try a manual reinstall for my mouse. Couldn't find them, (Logitech's website was of no help).So I got Driver Booster to help me. The program said my PC had a lot of outdated drivers, so I decided to let the program update them all in hopes it would fix both the code 10 and let my mouse work again.And that's how the touchscreen stopped responding. Driver Booster had paused while downloading the driver for the Bluetooth as Windows Defenders stopped it.

I was just thinking this. Ive been using wireless laptop mice for my laptop for 6 months and sure its great not having to drag the cord around or it pulling your mouse down the desk. But its alot more work than a simple laptop mouse with say a retractable pull out cord. You have to worry about the batteries for one, and your mouse all of a sudden becomes 2 parts - the mouse itself and the USB receiver. Then you have to worry about interference and whether the mouse glides well enough on certain table tops when commuting with the laptop. I just got a mini laptop mouse with a charger and it came with it and AAA NiMH batteries, but im contemplating if its even worth the money, and maybe just go back to the standard wired mouse.

For laptop, a wired mouse, just untangle and plug in, simple as that. Wireless mouse, you have to plug in the USB dongle, turn the mouse on, put mouse pad under neath etc.

Hi, first post. I can get the exact message in the popup, if requested. The USB piece has been confirmed to work on two other machines (Win. 7, Win. XP). I started looking this some ways back but then put it on the back-burner for maybe a couple years until recently. Here's what I remember trying since:
Removing and reinserting the laptop battery.Trying different ports.Restarting without USB piece, then plugging it in.Downloading drivers for the mouse, "Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000," which I couldn't do because only Win. 7 and Win. 8 were offered.Running some "Fixit" software by Microsoft.
This might've partly worked. It seemed to do nothing at first but I reinserted the piece after running the program and for the first time the computer seemed to install the software and the mouse was working... for a few minutes, then suddenly stopped.. lol? Since then I've reinserted it a few times, with it working one time. I ran Comodo antivirus in the middle of that... only possible variable I know of.

I tried a couple other things too but can't remember. Thanks in advance!

Hi there! I have a Labtec Wireless Desktop Keyboard/Mouse Combo. Now, I know it says "Desktop" in its name for a reason, but I'd like to use this combo for my laptop if it's possible. The combo comes with a 25 Ghz wireless receiver (2 PS/2 Port), a wireless keyboard, and a wireless mouse. I connected the wireless receiver to my desktop which is very close to my laptop. Then, I connected my mouse and keyboard with the receiver. On the receiver, there is a light called "Act". Whenever I press any key on keyboard or click my mouse, that light blinks so we know the combo is connected to the receiver;however, both keyboard or mouse don't work. I have Windows 7 on laptop and Windows XP on desktop if that helps

Also, my Desktop is very close to where I usually use my laptop so frequency range shouldn't be a problem (right?)

Is there additional steps to be taken next?

Hi,
I recently purchased a Microsoft cordless keyboard and mouse which I am quite happy with.
I had to download stuff from the Microsoft website to get it up and running properly, but there were 2 download options. The first one I clicked was the PS2 compatible mouse, but this came back with an error report 'cannot install this' etc. So I tried the other option without a problem.

Ever since then my PC starts up with a Wizard installation hardware report ' cannot install PS2 compatible mouse' which wastes times and is annoying. I have searched everywhere I can think to find where I can remove this object, but since it did not install it is difficult to locate. I can only locate it under hardware installation, but this leaves me no option to delete and only offers to try to install whilst reminding me that this could damage my existing driver!!!

I do not want it. How can I make it and its annoying pop up reminder go away?

I have a Microsoft 5 button optical trackball with a broken wire than can't be repaired. When I looked online to buy a replacement, only then did I lean Microsoft stopped making/selling their optical trackball's (WTF?), so there are no replacement parts out there to be had. They are so rare now, even broken trackballs fetch a premium.

I opened it up to see if I could fix it, and the cable ends in a simple five-connector plug, so fixing my trackball couldn't be easier. If only I could find a replacement cable!

Microsoft still makes/sells their 5 button optical mice (but doesn't sell parts). If it uses the same cable, I figure I can buy a cheap one just for the cord and use it in my trackball.

A:Annoying mouse lag - Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500

Erratic behaviour from wireless peripherals, especially keyboards and/or mice, particularly where they were working correctly before, generally points to a dying battery in the peripheral. Have you tried replacing it? If it is rechargeable, it may no longer be holding charge and will also need replacing.

Hey all,

I just installed Windows 7 earlier today. The install went fine, until right near the end. I had to click 'next' to a question, which I had already done a few times, but this time the tab was not responding. I tried again and again, then finally just hovered over the tab and pressed enter on my keyboard which did the trick.

Now that the OS is up and running, everything is working fine but I just have one problem. My left mouse button is doubling up as a 'back' button. So if I am in a folder and want to double click a new folder, or even if I just left click on empty space, it will take me backwards one folder. A nightmare in internet explorer aswell.

For the time being Ive switched the two buttons around, so I have an action button, but no right click (on the left mouse button now) anymore.

Ive tried installing the original drivers, and in compatibility for Vista, but nothing seems to fix the problem. Anybody have any suggestions? Id be real grateful to hear them

Cheers,

Oh and the mouse is a Logitech LX7 wireless.

Been experiencing some BSODs, mouse freezes and reboots. Reading lots here in the forum (thanks) and trying to understand what is happening and why. Read 'before posting in the BSOD forum' and hope I got it right?

I got a new MS wireless KB & mouse for Christmas and I can't be sure but I think problems started about then. I reverted to the old wired ones and problems still evident.

I really think I experienced a mouse freeze in safe mode.

New Samsung SSD a while ago and 64bit OS & will provide any info that may help.

I have been searching/reading to no good and looking for help please

I was reading about PC freezing up and discovered Event Viewer.. (screen attached)

In event viewer see lots of errors and warnings that I don't think are quite right and not at all sure if they are causing BSODs.WLAN Extensibility Module has failed to start.

Module Path: C:\Windows\system32\Rtlihvs.dll
Error Code: 126
I initially tried Malwarebyte and AVG software but no improvements.

I tried Driver Verifier and got a BSOD but don't seem to have a dmp file(?) so will continue reading here, and please let me know if you need other info.

I have a customer who swears up and down that 30% of the time during the day when he is working, the left click function of his mouse does not work. To make this even stranger, it only occurs in the upper right hand corner of the screen when trying to close applications or minimize.

I have not been able to reliably duplicate (although I have had it happen to me), but I do not sit in front of the computer all day either.

He has a Logitech wireless mouse (which I have updated the drivers for). We also tried new batteries.

At this time we are trying a standard corded Microsoft Mouse to see if that solves his issue. I will post back in a few days if that resolves the issue.

Has anyone else ever heard of this issue, have a solution?

I told him to drink after work, not before.... not sure if that will help or not .

Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks.

John

I want to buy a new router, the dlink wireless N Broadband router dir-635. First question: is it possible that wireless is faster than cable because it says that the speed is 300mbps? Second question: is the wireless N router compatible with all wireless adapters? because we now have allready a lot of wireless stuff and it all works at the moment. but i should be stupid to buy a new router if nothing works on it. please help me
 

A:Are Wireless G and N compatible with each other?

Save yourself some money and headaches. Stick with the G series routers. The N standard has not been finalized yet, to my knowledge.

Besides, you know the speed they are touting is your internal LAN speed only.

Hi
I got windows seven about a week ago and i have yet to find a compadible wireless adapter.

Are there any windows seven compadible wireless adapters on the market? If so are there any pci express wireless adapter cards that are compadible with windows seven?

A:Compatible wireless adapter

It's safe to assume, matter of fact extremely safe to say that if you run to a reputable shops now and buy one brand new for your machine and chipset, it'll work.

Which wireless ''N' usb adapters are compatible with Windows 7 64-bit. The linksys WUSB600N ver. 1 will not connect any faster than 54mbs.

A:Wireless 'N' compatible adapters.

Put the router in N only mode and try as a test. Take things from there.

Anyone recommend a good wireless adapter for Windpws 7. I have to have one for downstairs since there is no accessable wall outlet near the pc. I would prefer N standard since I will be upgrading my router soon. I was looking at this one but wasn't sure about it:

LINKSYS WUSB300N IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE 802.11n Draft USB 2.0 Wireless-N Network Adapter 256-bit WEP, WPA andWPA2 Encryption

Newegg.com - LINKSYS WUSB300N IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE 802.11n Draft USB 2.0 Wireless-N Network Adapter 256-bit WEP, WPA and WPA2 Encryption Security - Wireless Adapters

Thanks in advance.

A:compatible wireless apdapters

In theory, any adapter designed to the 802.11n standard will work - that's what standards are for. That said, there have been issues where mixing brands in a wireless network was not so successful. However, now that the 11n standard has been finalized, that "should" not be a problem. BUT - I note you will still see "draft" versions on the store shelves.

My advice is to decide on a router first, then buy the same brand adapters.

Hello. The spec sheet from HP and the retailer said X2 10-N013DX is wirless-ac compatible, but it even couldn't see 5Ghz wireless signal at all. It is equipped with RTL8723BS which is used in a lot of baytrail system, but it doesn't seem to be wireless-ac compatible.

A:X2 10-N013DX, is this really wireless-ac compatible?

 I will have to ask my internal contacts. The adverts I looked at showed the 802.11ac in both versions of the convertible notebook.  Please be patient. Did you purchase it online from HP or at a land based store or online vendor?

I am still having issues with my current internal laptop Atheros Qualcomm Wireless device. It is picked up by Windows 8 but it keeps saying that it's not working or there is a problem with the access point. I happen to know that my access point and my router is working fine as everything else is connecting fine to the wireless network. I am at a loss to what to do to fix it. I've uninstalled and re-installed the drivers and still the wireless card doesn't work.
So now I am thinking of using a USB wireless modem? Should I give that a try as last resort?

I'm just wondering if there are any differences between the two. I have integrated bluetooth on my laptop, so I won't need a dongle for it. I also know bluetooth is slower than wireless usb, but does this have any effect for a mouse?

In terms of performance and accuracy, are there any advantages or disadvantages to either format? Why are bluetooth mice seemingly much less popular with manufacturers?

Thanks a bunch.
 

A:Any difference between a wireless usb mouse or a bluetooth mouse?

Here's some advantages and disadvantages

Distance
Bluetooth you can expect 30 feet distance from the EEE. Wireless IR you can expect from 4 to 6 feet.

Easy to setup and configure
You plug Wireless in and it just works. With Bluetooth , you have to use the command line to set things up, and you have to script it or else every time you boot you'll have to give it all the commands.

Ports
The Bluetooth wins this one. The wireless keyboard and mouse use a USB port and do not give you anything else. The Bluetooth adapter uses the same port, but also lets you connect Bluetooth stereo headphones, your mobile phone, etc.

It really depends on what your needs are. If your living room is 12 feet and you want to hook your EEE up to your PC and surf from your lazyboy at the other end of the room, infrared won't do it. If you want the keyboard in front of the standard EEE screen and just want a better one, then the wireless IR is fine.

Recently I installed a Microsoft wireless mouse and it is working. But the wired mouse is now sporadic and at times freezes. I have unplugged the wireless mouse and rebooted several times. Even did a system restore.
Also an Excel spreadsheet stopped working with the wired mouse just freezing the screen completely. Even after rebooting, the Excel will open and eventually I will get a cross hair image. I have tried to update the driver on the wired mouse but it says I already have the most uptodate one. I am running Windows 10 64 bit. I scanned with Malware antimalware and it eliminated over 300 items. I am not sure what is going on.
I hope I don't have a virus. I have Norton 360 with my Comcast subscription but now I cannot even see it in my taskbar. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall but nothing happens in Control Panel when I try to uninstall.
I have a Dell XPS desktop. As I write the wired mouse is not functioning. If I unplug the mouse and put it back in the mouse port it works for a minute or so and then just dies. I don't even see the red light at the bottom of the mouse sometimes. I just unplugged the wired mouse and now it is working. So it is very odd behavior. I imagine by the time I post this the wired mouse will freeze again as has been the case. In the interim while I wait for a reply, I'll contact Comcast and see if they can help me with the Norton virus software issue.
