Using HP Wireless Optical Mobile Mouse (VK479AA) with NB305-N440 Netbook

[ Edited ]

Can anyone tell me how to use this mouse with my NB305-N440 netbook?  Are there specific drivers for this?  I know HP's site says that it shouldnt work for non HP/Compaq products, but there has to be a work around.  I have Windows 7 Starter.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

mini notebook NB305-N440BL - the blue one

 

 

There is no Bluetooth built into that computer. You would need to add it. Here's what Toshiba sells.

No, the mouse comes with a usb tranceivor to connect the mouse too.  Also my net book is the White one or NB305-N440WH, not that it matters.  Any pointers?

 

Here's a link to the mouse product description (HP address):

Try installing its driver.

This one says it's for Vista or XP, but try it anyway.

Ok I installed the driver but still no luck... Do I need to install the driver for a specific version of windows listed and try and make it compatible withh Windows 7 starter?  Any other tips on how to get this to work?
