  1. It sounds like you need a driver for that mouse. You can Google the name of your mouse followed by the model number and the word driver.

    Something like this: "genius mouse 454-xyz driver"
  2. i cant find one for my mouse mouse/m-uk del3 thats it
  3. That seems to be one of the old Dell/Logitech mice. If the laptop has Windows 7 on it, i doubt you will find a driver for the mouse.

    Windows 7 uses a different type of driver than XP, so a lot of the old XP hardware will not work.

    I do not know about your locale, but where I live you can get good new mice for $10 and under.
  4. i have xp on it
