Optical Mouse
 
Hi all,

I invested in a wireless optical mouse 2.4G Wireless 5 key but my puter will not recognise it? Its brand name is PROSTATtm and the model for the mouse is MOUSE-PWM2.4G

Any help would greatly be appreciated. I had the same trouble with an acer mouse which was also brand new. Therefore I dont think its the mouse more likely my puter.

Vista ... sad but true yes Vista...

Cheers

Are you plugging it in a USB port on the back of the computer, not one on a hub, like a monitor USB or other?
Also check that USB is enabled and USB legacy is enabled in the BIOS.

Googleing for that mouse model only shows one hit, this post here at SysChat.

I have to ask the obvious, has it got fresh batteries in it?

Have you installed the Vista drivers for it?

You would be better off using a Logitech and / or a Microsoft optical mouse as they are fully supported by Microsoft operating systems. You can then install the software to further customize the various buttons etc...

I have tried everything possible except tried it on a different computer. I would return it to the store where I got it from but I have destroyed the package it came in trying to get it out! Will try it on a different computer tonight if no luck there will try to return it.

Hi again,

Tried the mouse on my daughters computer which runs xp. Guess what! works fine. Therefore not Vista compatible.
