Dear Client,

thank you very much for your question. My name is***** and I will try to help you as quick possible.

Can you please let me know what exactly that device is and what you want to do with it? This will make it easier to understand what the actual problem is with it. There should be a name / model number on it.

Thanks for your patience and best regards,

Lorenz Vauck

Well, it's a MS something that I thought was to enable a wireless mouse.It looks like a small thumb drive.There is a p/n # and a PID #. Do you want those?

Thank you, ***** ***** you send me these please? In any case, I guess the mouse is not working as intended, is this correct? And just to make sure: there are batteries in the mouse already, right?

The problem is that when I inserted it in the USB port, it began setting up a device. Unfortunately, the setup got interrupted and now it won't do anything when I insert it, not even restart or continue the setup. Anyway, the p/n # is x820594 008. The PIN # is 01***-***-****916 11018

Thank you, ***** ***** should not really matter, as it silently re-installs next time you plug it in. Just to make sure: are there batteries in the wireless mouse?
