    Hi all,

    I just wanted to give all of you a heads up that there seems to be a serious compatibility problem with the new Bluetooth mouse from Microsoft. Certainly, the mouse does not seem to work with the Bluetooth stack that comes with the Asus laptop.

    I'm still working on it, but I'm about to call it a day and return the mouse. It's interesting to see this:

    Strangely, they link to Toshiba for a solution. But it's not working for me.

    More later. Ideas appreciated.

    It works!

    It takes a LOT of messing around to get it to go...I would have liked to have documented the process, but what seems to work is to install the mouse software, then REINSTALL the BT drivers supplied by Asus.
