  1. HI everyone,
    I wsa trying to install a Wireless Optical Travel Mouse on my Laptop and the instructions said to disable my onboard pointing device. Now I have no way to navigate since the the wireless mouse won't work either. I'm just stuck. Any suggestions? Thanks, Mark

    Have you tried restarting the computer with the Wireless mouse receiver in the usb port? If you are using XP it will recognize it automatically.. I use a wireless travel mouse and I never disabled the onboard pointing device. The mouse might also have a little button on it that sends a signal to the receiver. Or just click one of the mouse buttons..Sounds silly but it might work.
