    Query re Blu tooth


    I have a Toshiba Satelitte L550 running 8.1 in 7 style and have just bought a Gigabyte M7700B laser tracking Blu tooth mouse.
    Now I used the Blu tooth set up for the machine but it finds no device. In Device Manager I see the Blu tooh connection has a yellow triangle. Now I have downloaded the Blu tooth driver for 7 which did not work and then went to download the 8.1 drivers but get sent to a Windows 8.1 page that only gives me apps and stuff like that.

    After two hours of very slow downloading and getting nowhere I am at a loss as to how to get the driver for 8.1 - any ideas would be welcome.

    You are "pairing" the device, right? I would try it on another computer to see what happens.

    Well I would if I knew how to do that. Pairing my phones etc in the car is a no brainer but I have no options (that I know of) to the same with this mouse. At least in the car I was given a menu to follow with this mouse all the instructions I had was to switch it on push the Blu tooth button and let it run.

    The machine searched for a device but returns a no device found.

    Now as I said before I have reinstalled the Blu tooth driver but it is for Windows 7 as the link from Toshiba for a 8.1 driver leads me nowhere and that has me a bit p****d off. So unless I can find how to pair the mouse looks like I have some extraneous hardware

    Now I am at home tomorrow and I will try it on one of my other machines only I am not sure if they have a Blu tooth capability.

    Did you read the 1 Page User Manual for your new mouse? Part 1 is inserting the mouse. Part 2, Step one refers to pairing.

    Yep went through that procedure only I didn't notice any indicating light on the mouse or any evidence of the laser actually working as it says not to shine it in others eyes.
    I am now at home and a bit pushed for time but I shall have to dig the thing out and rerun the procedure as I have machines here that might help work out how it is or if it is functioning.

    Thanks for persisting with me all the same
