Good Morning:


Hope that you are wellJ

If you mouse is an older model that does not have an on/off switch, this could be a continuing problem. Be sure that that is an available option with your next purchase.

If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

And, remember; always include the type of Operating System and the type of computer you own, when you submit your questions. It simply makes for much faster solutions.

Have a wonderful week.

My wireless Logitech mouse stopped performing. I changed batteries. the red light comes on even before I changed the battery. I have had it about 3 months. Wal Mart told me to look on the back of mouse. ...


So much for Wal-Mart tech support.
If your mouse is not working, first check the batteries to be sure they are good.
You wireless mouse has a USB "antenna" or sending unit. It may have a button on it that says "connect." If so, push it.
The mouse itself has a little button on the bottom that says "connect."
Push that one next. It should now work.
If it doesn't, switch USB ports and try again.
And no, we don't charge for this answer.

The wireless mouse needed replacement batteries almost every day for a couple of weeks. Today it won't move at all.


Sounds like it was draining batteries at a rapid pace. If you were having to change batteries everyday for a while, that tells me that there is a problem with the board inside of the mouse and since you can't buy those parts for the mouse, it would need to be replaced.

Only other suggestion would be to make sure your using quality batteries like Energizer, Duracell, etc and if its still draining to much then you know for sure at that point the mouse is bad.

Pointer on laptop jumps to a different line while typing.


This may be caused by weak batteries, or interference by some nearby appliance (the worst case is another wireless mouse, of course: happened all the time in an office with six identical workstations, even to the two that were beyond a wall. But also wireless - not cellular - phones may interfere). Also the positions of receiver and mouse may play a part. Once sure the batteries work, try placing the receiver and mouse in different positions and see if it helps.
Otherwise, the receiver antenna could be defective.

Wireless Mouse on a laptop with built inTouchpad on the keyboard


No need to disable the touchpad they should both work at the same time. Have you tried both the mice on another PC?. The first mouse should have the correct software already installed but you will most probably need to install software for the microsoft mouse. I hope you have tried resetting by hitting the button on the receiver then while its flashing the button on bottom of the mouse? If all this fails do have any other USB devices you can test on laptop?......good luck

PS I hope its not the batteries

Can't open my optical wireless mouse to insert new batteries.


usually on the bottom of the mouse there is a little door with two notches or a single vertical notch which you need to carefully pry open and then insert your batteries as shown inside with + and - denotions.

Couldn't find the answer to the right click mouse button not working.


Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it to Reset/Connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly.
If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud

Warning: receiver channel changed - wireless keyboard and mouse


I contacted Gaeway Support. They quickly answered and suggested that I change the batteries in my wireless mouse and/or keyboard. I did. It was the mouse. As soon as the new batteries were in, the popup went away and stayed away.
