Logitech Wireless mouse Without USB

Is there any additional driver or software used to work with the built in bluetooth.
Thank u

Yes, there are drivers and software involved in getting it to work. The software may be optional depending on your hardware. I didn't setup the laptop so I'm just going by what he told me. I just purchased a Logitech Wireless Trackball with a Unifying Receiver. My desktop doesn't have Blue-tooth so I have to use the supplied wireless receiver. Windows 7 installed the driver when I plugged it in. I installed the latest driver from Logitech anyway. By itself the Unifying driver/software will let you manage and connect compatible wireless devices. Logitech also offers Setpoint software to manage some of the custom extra keys on their keyboards and mice. You don't need it installed to use the hardware, it just adds extra features. I have it installed to make use of some features on my keyboard that wouldn't work otherwise. In the case of my fathers laptop, I believe one of the devices is Unifying and the other isn't. They are both made by Logitech but bough separately at different times. I have a very limited experience with Blue-tooth devices so your mileage may vary.

He used the software bundled with his Acer laptop to setup the built in Bluetooth. I think it was his mouse that worked with the built in, and the keyboard that wouldn't. I know we e-mailed back and forth quite a bit trying to get it to work. Not having a laptop myself or anything Bluetooth I wasn't really much help.
