Hey guys --
So I wanted to throw out a bluetooth compatibility problem to see if anyone else is having the same problem. I am using a Dell Studio XPS laptop that DOES NOT have built in Bluetooth built in, so I added a dongle. I had a few problems with getting the dongle to work, but eventually got it all set up. I am not using a Microsoft 5000 bluetooth mouse and an Apple wireless bluetooth keyboard. The laptop is only about 2 months old, and the mouse and keyboard are even newer. On several occasions, I have left my computer on and went out for lunch, or whatever, and come back to a blue screen that seems to cite hardware compatibility problems. It says that if I have recently installed new devices that I should remove them or whatever.

The last thing I thought I would have compatibility problems with is a Microsoft product. I think it is the mouse causing the problems. I did not have any of these problems with XP.

Any ideas?

I have used many wireless mouses and key boards. I even keep new unopened backups. I have found that for what ever reason with a M/S system M/S wireless (BLUE TOOTH) mouses and keyboards seem to work the best. M/S likes M/S. It's not a right or wrong thing; it's a what is thing.
