Hey! I'm in need of some help for my Dell BT Travel Mouse.
I just bought a MacBook Pro about a week ago, and installed WinXP SP2 through Boot Camp. Everything has worked fine up until this morning when my BT mouse suddenly stopped working on both Mac OS X and Windows.

I fixed the problem on the Mac OS X by trashing a preference file, and the mouse now works perfectly.

It still does not work on Windows, though. When I try to install it, it locates the mouse, connects, but the system tray displays the following message: "A problem occured during hardware installation. Your hardware might not work properly".

I have a feeling it is a software problem. I tried reinstalling the Boot Camp software, but it didn't work.

Does anyone have an idea what I should do?

Thanks!

I'm having the same problem, which preference file did you delete? Have you solved it on Windows?

Thanks!
