    Bluetooth USB dongle showing as HID compliant mouse

    hi there,

    i have a lenovo G505 laptop running windows 8.1 and i am having issues trying to install my bluetooth USB adapter,
    a belkin F8T017,

    i have tried installing the drivers but it doesn't recognise the device during the installation, and when i check device manager it shows as a HID compliant Mouse, i have tried everything i can find on google, tried installing the vista drivers in compatibility mode, and repeatedly uninstalled the device in DM, even tried to update the driver software and pointing to the correct drivers but as the drivers are old it keeps saying the drivers installed are the most up to date (even though they are wrong) it does not recognise it as a bluetooth adapter, and it works in my fiancee's laptop and my desktop which both run win7 ultimate.

    i am wondering if anyone on here knows of anything i can try to resolve this?

    Perhaps there is no win 8.1 driver written for this device? I would search the manufactures website for an updated driver. I know my Asus G75 needed an upgraded Bluetooth driver to work correctly in 8.1

    F8T017 Its seems that win 7 win 8 or 8.1 are not listed in the compatibility list
