    wireless mouse will not work

    I have a wireless mouse that installs on my computer running windows Vista
    Ultimate but won't install on my laptop running Vista Home Basic. All I could
    see why is because of the different Vista for the reason. Any input on how to
    fix this problem ? Thanks

    Any difference between the security programs you're running?

    How are you setting up the mouse? Are you attaching the transmitter to a
    hub or to a usb port on the lappy?

    no difference in the security between the computers and the transmiter is
    attached to the USB on the laptop
