Why mouse stop working

There could be several reasons why a mouse doesn't work

- Does it move the cursor at all? if the movement is jerky, or ok in one direction and not another then it might just need cleaning (if it has a ball and rollers inside - although not if it has a laser light shining from the bottom when you turn it over)

- Does it connect to your PC using a cable - USB or PS2 (older round connector)?

- If USB, try unplugging it from one USB port and plugging it ito a different one on the PC/Laptop

- If PS2 these have to be plugged in when the PC/Laptop boots up - You can't swap them while the PC is running - try connecting it and rebooting

- If it's a wreless mouse, it will have a battery inside - has this run down and need to be replaced? - Try swapping the USB receiver from one port to another on the PC

- Or It might actually have a hardware fault - It's quite rare but not unheard of - Mouses are often very cheaply made

The mouse won't work at all. I've plugged the usb into all the ports and it just won't work. It won't move scroll or click. The green light comes on then gently fades away. The batteries are new and I've...

The light is supposed to go dim after few seconds. it's not lit all the time. So it works propperly.

2 of my arc mouses stopped working too after 6-12 months and i got new ones but now after 4 months with the new ones, they failed too.

The problem is within connection between USB-device and mouse. the USB device gets overheated and destroys it self in extensive use.

Get it back to store and swap it to new one.

The mouse is no working correctly, it is just working the arrow but not the enter

firstly, have you tried using an external mouse yet?

I think it's the mouse left clip faulty, one of the common problems that most people face.

try using external usb mouse and see if it solve the problem.
if not then re-install the laptop itself.

USB works only for KBD not USB mouse...all work on other PC's but not on XPS400. Chipset update and reinstalled drivers from Dell. Must be MOBO. Warranty out in 3 weeks. Dell support resisting mobo...

If you swap the usb mouse to another known good working usb port does that work. If it does then great, if not then here is what you will need to do. Go to device manager > Universal Serial Bus Controllers > Delete any usb root hub devices, reboot windows and it will automatically redetect the drivers. You will notice that during this process your other usb devices will stop working, this is temporary until you reboot. If this is a logitech mouse uninstall the setpoint software through add/remove.

Mouse stops working

Hello sir/maam, try to swap another mouse, but to work properly, you need to shutdown your pc first if you are using the PS2 version. if your mouse is the USB version, no need to shutdown.
As you swap, you will know if your mouse is defective. if confirmed bad, buy a new one.

The mouse on the laptop has stopped working. I have changed over the mouse itself thinking it was a problem with the mouse, but it worked for about 30 minutes before it stopped working again.

check to see if it's a driver issue:
check in device manager for a ? or a ! next to the pointing device: go start>right click my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look for a yellow symbol with a ! triangle or a yellow "?"sign... if you find this under ponting device you have most likely a driver issue,

check the manufacturer's website for an updated driver for you pointing device and reinstal the driver.

Aspire 3610 USB ports

I think you might have a loose cononection for the data ports. Try putting a little bit of force on the usb device. Up, down left right. NOT ALOT. If it starts working when force is used, i tihnk you should try to take it apart and resolder the connections. If it dosen't work, uninstalling the driver and installing.
