Unresponsive mouse XP unable to initialize device driver for Logitech LX8 laser mouse

Went to Logitech site downloaded Setpoint 4.60.122 driver install. When install finished, I received this error message: "Windows unable to initialize device driver." I uninstalled and then reinstall still the same. Used Logitech connect utility. It said mouse is connected. Mouse properties window still says: "Unable to initialize device driver."

    Thank you for your kind and very fast reply. No this mouse is not new, it has worked before. The driver was uninstalled as well as the setpoint software. But when the driver and software were reinstalled I received the error message. Windows error code 37.

    What mouse do you actually have?

    Is this mouse usb only or did it come with a PS2 adapter in the box?

    Have you tried just installing the generic Logitech or MS mouse driver? They will almost certainly give you mouse support.

    Does
    your mouse have a usb adapter for the wireless connection and do you
    have to sync channels and or have you sync'd channels for the mouse
    successfully?

    LX8 Laser cordless w/usb adapter. No PS/2 adapter. Have not installed generic, but, will try now. Not sure what is meant by sync channels.

Your best course of action would be to use System Restore, based on your response above. Go back to the point where everything worked for you and don't attempt to update your driver again. If it works, don't fix it.

After that if there was something you wanted to accomplish, let us know and we can help you.

    Hello,

    When you have a cordless mouse, the attachment that inserts in the USB port is the transceiver and the mouse itself is also a transceiver. The two devices operate on a clear channel for communications. There is normally a small recessed button on the bottom of your mouse. (sometimes there is one on the unit that attaches to the USB port too.) On older cordless mice, these two has to be sync'd by pressing and releasing the small button on both the unit on your PC and the cordless mouse too each and every time you booted up. A real pain and something Logitech/MS strove to resolve.

    So, assuming you checked the batteries, the next best thing to do is press the reset comm button on the mouse. You hold this in until the mouse lights up, that then indicates you have communication with the transceiver.

    Should that not work, its always a good idea to take this to Logitech Support by going onto their web site and asking them for help. The point of that course of action would be to have your mouse replaced if it is defected for some reason. Being a little radio transceiver, it can go bad and for no apparent reason.

    Let us know, how you make out or if you are back in business, it helps us to know what you did do in your case to resolve this.

    Thanks,
    Worldvet

Logitech LX8 Mouse back button quit working on AOL


This has been a long time problem with Logitech and Aol. If your mouse software allows you to edit your mouse buttons, change the back button to "keystroke" and enter the back arrow key on your keyboard as the command. Alt left arrow also works. While you don't appear to have a forward button, Aol users who do, would change it to "keystroke"...Alt right arrow.

Mouse not working


First try uninstalling the Setpoint software. Xp should have a native driver for your mouse. If that does not work check to see (at the Setpoint website) if they have an undated driver. Download and do it again. You might also want to run scandisk just to make sure you do not have a cross linked file before going anything else.
