    Sorry for the basic question, but does your laptop have a bluetooth card installed in it? On my Inspiron 9100, the bluetooth card was an optional accessorie I had to purchase separately and install.

    If you do have one, determine if it's enabled. On mine, I can do Function+F2 to turn the radio on and off.

    Have you installed mouse bluetooth drivers yet? and how windows detected device (check in device manager).

    This doesn't seem to be a question of drivers for the mouse. Unless I read it wrong, the question was in regards to enabling bluetooth on the laptop.
