hehe, sorry it made me giggle. When you pick up an optical mouse it blinks trying to establish a reading on the surface it's on. Since it's in mid air and there is no surface, it will continually blink until you put it down.

This definately sounds like dirt over the optical lense (given that you are certain the batteries are "good" not simply "unused"). Take a paint brush with about 150 bristles and thuroughly clean inside the hole on the bottom of the mouse that emits the light.

Hp pavilion a705w. no peripheral response


The fact is *********** board is very likely the matter. See all devices that do not need the motherboard to respond are all working (cd/dvd tray opens and closes, fans are on etc). On the other hand all devices that need the motherboard to respond are not working (keyboard, optical mouse, etc). It is more or less conclusive.

Wireless mouse will not connect or respond


Insert the new batteries, making sure that the positive(+) and negative (-) ends of each battery match the polarity indicators inside the battery housing.
When replacing the batteries, you may use
alkaline or other heavy-duty NiMH batteries. Never use an
alkaline with a NiMH battery in a device.
Avoid mixing new and used batteries in a device. Slide the battery cover back into position until it “clicks” firmly into place. Turn on the mouse be sliding the on/off switch on the bottom of the mouse to the “on” position.
The optical sensor, located on the bottom of the mouse, glows red.
6 Just somethings to check, One other thing to take a peek at, on the transmitter look to see is there is a tiny button that may say connect or reconnect. You may need a pen if you have chubby fingers like me.
Hope this helped, please leave a rating,
thank you kindly

Wireless mouse not working


Try to replace the batteries in it. It may be acting strange due to low batteries. If this does not help you try testing out on another system and post results.

My wireless optical mouse is no longer working


You replaced the batteries. Okay. Did you install drivers for the mouse from a CD? Are you using Windows XP? Do you notice any change if you use the mouse on a darker surface as opposed to lighter surface? If the computer installed the drivers for you, then you might want to delete them in Device Manager (might be called something like HID-Compliant Mice. Single click on that entry, press the delete key. You might have to reboot your PC after that. From there you might have to unplug, then plug in the mouse again and you should notice the driver reinstalling. Give it a second and all should be good.

*Access the Device Manager by right-clicking on My Computer, select Properties, go to the Hardware tab and select Device Manager.

When you say you pressed the connect buttons on both the keyboard and mouse, do you mean you pressed the connect button on the receiver, and then you pressed the connect buttons on the mouse and keyboard? If not, then that's what you have to do. The 30 seconds of blinking on the receiver is normal, as it gives you time to find and press the buttons on the mouse and keyboard.

I hope this helps, and good luck!
