INTRODUCTION Congratulations and thank you for purchasing the MiniWireless Optical Mouse from Belkin. You are about to experience a whole new world of computing convenience with superior input features and navigating accuracy. The MiniWireless Optical Mouse provides a great radio frequency (RF) wireless input solution for the mobile professional. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS PC 486 or higher Windows® 98 SE, Me, 2000, XP USB port CD-ROM drive PACKAGE INCLUDES MiniWireless Optical Mouse USB Receiver User Manual 2 AAA Batteries OVERVIEW Before starting the installation of the hardware for the Mouse, please remove any drivers or software from any mice that were previously installed on your computer. This is to avoid any conﬂicts they may create, which could result in an improper installation of your Mouse. Please consult the documents that came with your previous mouse for proper instructions on how to uninstall the software and drivers. MOUSE SETUP 1. Remove the top cover of your Mouse by pressing and holding the bottom release tab. (Fig. 1) Fig. 1 2. Insert 2 AAA batteries. (Fig. 2) HARDWARE INSTALLATION 1. Make sure your computer is turned on before installing the Mouse. 2. Connect the receiver into an available USB port on your PC. (Fig. 3) Navigate your notebook computer with optical precision and wireless freedom Fig. 3 3. Your PC should automatically find new hardware and install necessary drivers. Note: Windows 98 SE may require you to insert your Windows 98 SE Installation CD into your computer’s CD-ROM drive to complete the install. 4. Switch on the power of the Wireless Mouse located on the backside of the Mouse. The Mouse syncs with the receiver automatically. (Fig. 4) User Manual F8E874 P74749-A Fig. 4 Note: If the Mouse does not sync with the receiver automatically, please see the section entitled “Synchronizing your Mouse to your Receiver”, below. Note: While traveling, please switch off the unit to save battery power. SYNCHRONIZING YOUR MOUSE TO YOUR RECEIVER If the Mouse does not automatically sync with the receiver, press the connect button on the top of the receiver. The light on the receiver will blink rapidly. Then sync the Mouse to the receiver by pushing the sync button on the bottom of the Mouse. The light on the receiver will stop blinking and light brightly. (Fig. 5) Fig. 2 3. Replace the top cover and close. Note: Be sure to check polarity (+ or – sign) and insert battery properly. MiniWireless Optical Mouse Fig. 5 Note: Each time you repeat this step, the Mouse randomly selects a new ID. This allows multiple wireless mice to work in the same location without cross talk. If you experience cross talk with another wireless mouse, repeat the synchronizing steps to change the channel. SETUP FOR MULTIPLE USERS When using more than one MiniWireless Optical Mouse in the same location, set up one Mouse at a time. You must complete the setup for each Mouse before beginning to set up the next Mouse. ENVIRONMENT To avoid environment interference, which will shorten the effective operation distance, please note the following: 1. Do not put the Mouse and receiver on a metal cabinet or desk. Metal creates RF interference, which may impair the RF communication and shorten the communication distance. 2. Keep a distance of more than 4.9 feet (1.5m) between your Mouse and another operational RF device to avoid interference. 3. The optical sensor of the Mouse will not work correctly if placed on a mirror, glass, or on any reflecting or half-tone painted surface. TROUBLESHOOTING The cursor doesn’t react when I move the Mouse. 1. This is probably because the distance between the receiver and Mouse exceeds the working range of 3.3 feet (1m). Adjust so that the Mouse is closer to the receiver. 2. Make sure that the Mouse is not placed on a reflective surface such as a mirror, glass, half-tone painted surface, or on a 3-D mouse pad. When using the wireless device on a metal table or near metal furniture, use a non-reflective, thick mouse pad to reduce the potential for interference. 3. Your synchronizing setup may not have worked properly. Please repeat the synchronization setup process. Why don’t the scroll functions work with my notebook computer? Check to be sure that you have disabled your notebook computer’s trackball, touch pad, or J-Key in the Control Panel. Then enable the external port so that all your Mouse’s functions will be available. My USB Mouse was not detected by the system and won’t work. What should I do? Please do the following: 1. Ensure that your USB Mouse is completely plugged into the USB port. 2. Check the functioning of your system’s USB port in the “Device Manager” page of System Properties. If there is a circled exclamation point through the USB port’s icon, the USB controller has a problem. Please try to uninstall and then reinstall the USB driver, or contact your PC manufacturer’s technical support department. 3. Check the version of your operating system. If you are not running Windows 98 SE, Me, 2000, or XP, please update your operating system to one of these, so that the USB device can be enabled. 4. Make sure that the USB port is enabled in the BIOS setup.
