Firstly try and include more detail about laptop, such as O/S installed. You may need to go on line to the manufacturers site to get the latest driver for your wireless mouse. Just maybe a vista driver was not included on disc.
Hi! I hope somebody can help me as I am really frustrated by what's happened. I bought the above mentioned laptop with my Bar Mitzvah money last October. My parents gave me a corded mouse that I attached . It was working fine until a couple of weeks ago when I got a message on the computer that I should re-install the mouse and if that does not work, to replace it. So I did and it still isn't working. Tonight I bought a new mouse, its a Targus wireless mouse especially for Laptops. When my dad tried to install that one, we got a message to contact the hardware manufacturer because of some sort of missing driver, which didn't make sense. Anyhow, that's two mouses (mice?) that are not working so we decided to go to a previous restore point...but that's another problem because now all the updates have been uninstalled. We just seem to be getting deeper and deeper into who knows what here...
So, my question is this...what would cause my laptop to stop recognizing any kind of external mouse? I don't download on it and the only things I have done recently is install AVAST antivirus on it.
