Bluetooth Mice Issues

I picked up a Razer Orochi gaming mouse yesterday so that I can get rid of my crappy HP stock mouse when doing graphics work but I am having some issues with getting the device to pair with Windows 7 X64.

The PC itself is custom built and I did not build in bluetooth capabilities so I picked up a separate BELKIN USB BLUETOOTH DONGLE to take care of that issue.

I have uninstalled, reinstalled and updated all of the possible firmware and hardware and followed all of the other steps to try and get the device to be recognized but...no go.

Am I doing something wrong? Or any other suggestions? Thanks guys!

Re: Bluetooth Mice Issues

Goes without saying but did you check for the latest 64bit drivers for the mouse and dongle?

You mentioned both hardware and firmware but never the key "software" needed

Re: Bluetooth Mice Issues

I don't mind having it plugged in but its sort of aggravating because the usb cord for the mouse is only about 2 feet or so and it doesn't reach behind the computer so it is plugged in front and the cord is buggin me

Re: Bluetooth Mice Issues

if your mouse plugs in you can get some usb extension cables and run it to the back of your computer also.
