A couple of days ago i bought a Belkin mini wireless optical mouse (Model F8E874). Today i connected it for the first time but i had problems making it work. I plugged the USB wireless reciever and then turned the mouse on but the arrow pointer does not move at all. Connecting a ps2 mouse i could find that Windows XP detected it, as it appears in Device Manager.

Did i miss something or is that the mouse is broken?

On most wireless mouse devices there is a set button , ( very small ) on both the receiver device and on the bottom of the mouse.

After connecting the wireless mouse and starting up the computer you may need to press both set buttons for the device to work. The set buttons are what helps the device detect and work.


Hope this helps...

Thanks. That was it. I had to press the button on the reciever to sync and now it works like a charm!.
