I bought this from a car boot sale for £1.00 with no instructions, discs of any kind -(perhaps one of the previous unhappy users!!)
I just plugged in to the USB hub and the green LED light came on but nothing happened with the mouse. After a couple of minutes I noticed the grey button on the bottom of the mouse and pushed it in with a pen. Mouse worked. No problems what so ever. Nice size mouse and good weight in my hand… Read Full Review

Packard Bell C - 3UP Cordless - I bought this Packard Bell C -- 3UP Cordless Mouse because of the low price from Dixons. The installation instructions are lousy and I cannot get it to work on my 2-year-old computer bought from PCWorld.
I went back to Dixons and a helpful store assistant showed how it worked with his instore laptop (Windows XP) without needing to install via the floppy, but I cannot make it work on my home computer.
I have wasted several hours trying to get the damn thing to… Read Full Review

Packard Bell should do the only right thing left to do and that's refunds for all those that bought there damn wireless mouse and who have the newer PCs without floppys (yet another tragic mistake by the PC manufacturers) and then try and get real...fire their technical requirements engineer for the product and the marketing manager who must have his head up his bottom… Read Full Review

This is the second Packard Bell C -- 3UP Cordless mouse I have bought now and I find them excellent, no problems at all and very easy to set up, didn't even need the drivers at all, plugged it in and was instantly recognised by my computer. I dont know what windows you all use, but I use windows XP and no drivers were needed. Had to buy a new c-3up due to the fact that I actully wore the bottom of the old one to a Hi gloss shine and took a few mil off it causing the ball to touch the top of its… Read Full Review

If you have problems with connecting this Packard Bell C - 3UP Cordless mouse, you basically need to do the following (in this order!):
1. Press the black button under the receiver so that the LED is flashing
2. Press the grey button under the mouse.
After steps 1 and 2, the mouse should be synchronised and work perfectly.
Good luck :)… Read Full Review

I bought this Packard Bell C -- 3UP Cordless Mouse because of the low price, and it was a good size for my hand (not too large). The instructions in the booklet were not much help (did Packard Bell actually read them?!)in fact, they make no sense at all, but after trial and error I got the mouse to work initially. Went away for a few minutes, and when I came back the thing had stalled on me. No amount of button pressing, uninstalling/installing has helped. Sorry, but its gotta go… Read Full Review

I think that the Packard Bell C -- 3UP Cordless Mouse works really well.
I had the problem with instalation at the begining, but I must honestly say that it was just my fault - I did not read the whole instructions, which are appearing while installing the drivers.
If you need the driver for this mouse - send me an e-mail, and I'll send you back compressed content… Read Full Review

I have the same issue as JccanCarroll. I can't install the software as it comes on a floppy and I don't have a floppy drive! CD, DVD OK, but no floppy. Tried the website to try and download the appropriate software but couldn't even find a mouse referenced, let alone the software for it. No wonder Dixons were selling them cheap!… Read Full Review

Have tried the so-called Packard Bell support on-line but can't find an e-mail address for them, if anyone can help with this, I would be very grateful… Read Full Review

This Packard Bell C -- 3UP Cordless Mouse is a very good quality product let down by pathetic installation instructions.
Even though I am a very experienced PC user I followed the instructions to the wire and could not get it to do anything.
I took it back to the shop who straight away said "did you press the buttons in the right order? they forgot to put it in the instructions"
Apparently, you first have to press a small "learn button" on the base of the receiver which starts the LED… Read Full Review
