Ask Computer Hardware Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hello, and thank you for using this service.
I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble. I will help you now.
Is this a Lenovo desktop or laptop?
Does the TRACKPAD work on the laptop?
the built in mouse on the laptop near the keyboard. i believe your laptop has a trackpad or another built-in pointing device (mouse).
touch to see if your cursor moves on the screen
ok. good. now, you say you have plugged in an external usb mouse (one with a cord/wire) and that does not work ?
was the bluetooth mouse working previously with this laptop?
Do you know the make and model of your bluetooth mouse? it may be on a label on the bottom of the mouse.
is it black with a stamp that says THINKPAD on it?
Please let me know the results of this test. I've also sent you an offer for remote services if you'd like me to connect to your computer and fix thing for you while you watch and communicate with me. Thank You.
Turn on your device and make it discoverable. This usually means pressing a button on the mouse for "pairing".
Turn on Bluetooth > select the device > Pair.
Follow any more instructions if they appear.
Are you able to see your mouse device on the screen?
ok, what is the name of the mouse device you see on the bluetooth window?
also, you do not have to accept remote services. it's just a much easier way for me to help you fix this, as I can connect and see what you see and communicate with you. i will help you either way you choose.
I believe that's the touchpad. what exactly do you see in the BLUETOOTH window?
I don't think you are in the right place. Did you want me to connect with you remotely to make this easier? Otherwise, I can try to send more detailed instructions with pictures.
a better approach, if i'm not able to connect to you, would actually be for you to send me a screen capture of what you see in your bluetooth devices window. you can attach that as a reply here if you'd like. i really need to see what you see on the screen. thanks.
