I don't know what "Wall" he was talking about. Try with a USB cable mouse. This will isolate the laptop hardware from the equation. It could be that when the memory was upgraded, the mousepad connector became undone. It can easily happen.

Hi! For about a year now Ive had an ongoing problem with my mouse pointer. Online, the mouse pointer changes to a hand icon and will not "do" anything. Kathy

Go into Windows Control Panel - Add Remove Programs. Look for Logitech software and uninstall it if it is there.

Go into Hardware and look for Mouse, Delete the icon, ignore warnings. Reboot the computer. You may have to just pull the wall plug. When the computer reboots, it will find the mouse and load the generic Windows Drivers.

Just have the mouse- wont work. have batteries in, have receiver plugged in. computor say working correctly. but isnt working

Try this;
Go to (>) Start>Control Panel>Bluetooth
A window will open showing you all the wireless devices that are already recognised by your computer. If the icon for this mouse is shown there then highlight it and click 'Remove Wireless Device'. Then click "Yes" (Sometimes removing a device and then reinstalling it fixes the problem)


Click on Add Wireless Device ( a new window will open and the computer will search for the device. When it finds the mouse an icon will appear. Highlight the icon and click Next
The computer will load the driver for the mouse.
Once this is done the mouse should be working OK.

Also check this:
Go to (>) Start>Control Panel>Bluetooth
Click on "Bluetooth Settings"
Place a tick in the box next to "Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer > Apply > OK

Trying to install my copy of word on netbook without cd

  • Insert a blank memory stick or card into a USB port of a computer that has a CD drive.
  • Place your Microsoft Word software CD into the CD drive of your computer.
  • Hold down the "Shift" key as you close the CD drive. This will prevent the CD from automatically installing Microsoft Word on the computer.
  • Open the CD drive. The files that are on the CD will appear in a window. Click on the first file that appears. Then hold down the "Shift" key and click on the last file so that you select all of the files.
  • Release the "Shift" key. Then hover your mouse over any file and right-click. Select the "Copy" option from the context menu.
  • Open the memory stick. Hover your mouse over the memory stick window and right-click. Select the "Paste" option to copy the files onto your memory stick. Close the memory stick and right-click on the memory stick icon with your mouse. Select the "Eject" choice from the menu to safely remove the memory stick.
  • Insert thememory stick into the USB slot of your netbook.
  • Open the memory stick . The top of the screen should have an Setup.exe icon. Double-click on this file to begin the process of installing Microsoft Word.

    How to get the pairing code of my microsoft mobile memory mouse 8000?

    I have windows vista,
    you don't need a pairing code, this is what worked for me:
    Go on control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Bluethooth Devices, then click on Add Wireless Decive. It will open a window and you will see the mouse there (if you dont' see it, click on the pairing button of your mouse). Then, don't double-click on the icon because it will ask you to enter the pairing code! Instead, right-click on it and choose ''properties''.
    It will open the properties, then go to ''Services'', it will search the services you device offers. When the service appears, select the check box. It will install you mouse on your computer!! then click ''OK''.
    There you go!
    I worked for me, hope this helps!
    Goodluck ;)

    On the bottom bar by the clock, if your computer is newer there should be a small icon that controls your mouse. Simply right click on it and check the box "tap to click" or similar. Hope this helps!
