Magic Mouse not pairing in Windows 7 after pairing in OSX.

Despite what you may think from reading the title I HAVE searched google for a couple months now and I have not seen any similar situations with solutions.
Backstory: This mouse originally was used on a Clevo M590KE (HyperSonic AX20) with Windows 7 64bit which died after 6 years. I got handed down a MBP 3,1 and tooled around with OSX a bit(fresh install of 10.7) and of course connected my Magic Mouse. But being a windows user I quickly got frustrated with OSX for various reasons. It's now wiped and boots only Windows 7 64bit with Bootcamp 4.0 for drivers.
Now: I cannot pair my Magic Mouse. I turn it on, go into window's bluetooth pairing dialog, It shows "Mouse" or sometimes "admin's Mouse" (the username from OSX), I double click that to pair and it just sticks at "Connecting..." and of course the Mouse turns off from pair mode because it took too long.
Questions: Obviously the mouse remembers the Mac it was connected to. Is there any way to reset the Magic Mouse itself? I've tried a lot of things including leaving the batteries out for a very long time(at least a week) but I assume its written in non-volatile flash because that didn't work.
Thanks so much for any help.
