How to Troubleshoot a Dell Travel Mouse with Bluetooth


As the popularity of laptop computers increases, manufacturers have developed a line of peripheral devices to meet the demands of laptop users. Among the many devices available to laptop users are travel mice. Travel mice are easier to transport due to their smaller size. Dell has created a Bluetooth-compatible travel mouse, which allows users to wirelessly connect the mouse to their computer. Though the Dell Bluetooth travel mouse will work well under most conditions, there are occasions when the user will run into problems with the mouse. Troubleshoot your Dell Bluetooth travel mouse to return it to working order.

  • Remove the battery cover from the Dell travel mouse and check that the batteries are properly inserted. You may need to replace the batteries if they are exhausted.

  • Restart your computer. An error may have occurred in the connection between the mouse and your computer. Restarting the computer should fix the error.

  • Check to see if the Bluetooth function on your computer is on. Refer to your computer’s instruction manual for information on how to turn on the Bluetooth feature.

  • Reinstall your Bluetooth software if you are using Windows XP. If there was a problem with your Bluetooth installation, the computer will not connect with your mouse. Consult the documentation supplied with the Bluetooth software for information on installing the software.
