Good Day Everyone,

running Windows 7

first i had my Microsoft Sculpt Bluetooth mouse hooked up to it and wanted to use my mouse on my laptop (windows 8 bluetooth ready) and did so. when i went to move it back i had a bleeping time trying to hook it up so i couldent doit. so then i said i would try it on my wifes laptop(windows 8 not bluetooth) with the dongle so i did the following.


right clicked on the windows 7  bluetooth icon to turn off

Removed the device

tried plugging it into the laptop and the laptop didnt even recgonized that it was connected.

so i tried it back in the windows 7 desktop and didnt work again.


so one of two things after the fact of me not being able to hook up my mouse.

1) somehow damaged the dongle with the moving it from one computer to laptop


2) by turning off this device and removing it made it some how locked untill a turn on call calls it.
