Well, it's 2:30 a.m. Eastern and finally after having my GX-7 for about 3 weeks, my MX900 is up and running without the hub!!!! Holy Cow, what a frustrating time this has been. I refused to stop trying even after the Tech's at Hypersonic said Logitech stated they would not work. Here's what I finally did to make it happen.
I uninstalled the Billiontion software through add/remove software and then went to the Sager support site. Ended up using the Model 4760 drivers page and the 1.42 version for bluetooth. Ran the install and after a little troubleshooting, everything started working. Here's the link to the page and if 4760 is clicked on a new window will open up with the drivers.http://www.sagernotebook.com/pages/tech_sfwrdls.html#1
Once I downloaded the new version, the initial attempt still didn't work, then I checked the device manager and sure enough, all of our favorite Big Yellow Question Mark was in the USB column. I right clicked on it, went to properties and hit "reinstall driver" and like magic the Billionton bluetooth popped up in it's own column and it was resolved. Then I went back and doubled clicked on the Billionton bluetooth module and ran the device set up. This time the MX900 pic looked like a mouse and no "?" over it. When I hilighted it, proceeded with "next," all of the software started installing and when it was done, the mouse is working flawlessly! The only two buttons which don't work are the scroll buttons above and below the scroll wheel (which is kinda redundant with the wheel right there anyway). Man is this mouse smooth and fast.
I don't know if it matters, but, this time while I was playing around with the whole process, I didn't have the USB hub to the MX900 anywhere in site. It's currently hooked to one of my desktops in another room. Before when I had it present, I couldn't even get the lappy to recognize the mouse at all. Not even detect that it was present. For some reason when I started attempting to connect the mouse to the lappy this time prior to the new 1.42 version, it would show the MX900 with a question mark in the pic and not let me connect without a pin link.
Well, I hope this helps at least one person get theirs up and running. If nothing else it shows it's possible on the GX7. Now I'd better create a restore point while everything's working since I don't know what will happen on the reboot. Oh yah, just a footnote, I also have both the wifi and bluetooth running together without problems. Technology ROCKS........when it works! I'm going to bed now!
