Hi, I have dug out an old wireless belkin mouse, giant rat by todays standards but it does everything I need and I find it more comfortable to use than something the size of a matchbox. It also does not send the cursor into hyperspace as soon as I touch it. Tried on 2 XP machines and no problem but can't get it working with W7 for some reason.
I can’t find a driver on the Belkin site. The mouse and keyboard came as a set referred to as a combo (F8E846ukBNDL-DB). I have installed the drivers from the disk that came with it and the keyboard works but not the mouse although they both work in XP. I don’t want to use the keyboard anyway but there was no option to just install the mouse. I am not really bothered if I can’t get it working just though I would give it a try expecting to just plug it in and use it.
Quickbeam & Aitchbee, thankyou for your constructive input. I think that I may have now found the cause of it's early demise. In the instruction manual after the bit about disposing of the batteries which are presumably Plutonium it does clearly state "Not to be stored with Rentokill products"
Aitchbee "You might have a loose moose." or maybe you a screw loose. I still think it is an anti-mouseware issue. Unless you and QB are prepared to ratify this then I suggest that you Minnie mize your cheesy comments and stop taking the Mickey.
