Specs: Windows 7
I just had a new hard drive installed in my laptop plus upgraded to windows 7. Now I can't get it to recognize the wireless mouse. I have tried installing a device but that didn't work. It doesn't even see it. I am not real good with computers so maybe I am missing something.

If you were upgraded to Windows 7, sounds like a driver issue. You need to look for a current mouse driver for that OS.

Here's a suggestion - AVOID wireless mice & keyboards. I simply cannot understand why anyone would use these. I mean, wireless mouse or keyboard does what for you...., besides costing you $ with batteries & giving you headaches? You have to sit close to the monitor to see whats on the screen, so, it's not like you can take your wireless mouse & KB in the next room and work on your PC.
WIRED mice & KB's - plug 'em in - snap - always works - all (majority) the time - no batteries - no resetting the bluetooth wireless connections - I just don't get why these bluetooth input devices are even used.

Just another stupid saying...

Thank you. Sounds like good advice. I will just use a plug in mouse.

I agree 200% ;-)
Just get a wired optical mouse (they have some nice small ones with retractible cords for laptops), if your laptop has Ps2 ports you can get that type of mouse and keyboard, saves your USB ports for other uses, if it doesn't, just get the usb ones, you'll be much happier. If you are limited on usb ports, you can always get a 4 usb port PCMCIA card real inexpensive
