Make sure the battery is good ((has full charge))also you make sure the usb device for the mouse is inserted correctly into the usb port (if applicable) or if its a lead
make sure the lead from the mouse has a secure seating and the lead is not bad/faulty
((if applicable)) if this fails to fix the problem you could try it in safe mode

restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to mice and other pointing devices you might see a yellow exclamation mark ! or question mark ? or a red x right click to update driver
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the driver could be on it
hope this helps you

Visit the system manufacturer web site. Make sure you have noted the Model Number (or serial number) of your system to speed up finding the right drivers for you.

You should try first the "Chipset Drivers" for your system to properly identify and detect your hardware.

Mouse quit working


Logitech wireless mice operate in a slightly different technological sphere to wired mice.
Wireless mice need batteries, they need to be turned on and they need an interference-free radio environment.
One advantage of wireless mice is that they tend to function with laser or optical parts rather than a ball and wheels, so there are fewer moving parts to go wrong.
However, optical and laser wireless mice have considerations to take into account.
Change the batteries in the mouse if the mouse doesn't work.
Remove the battery cover and insert new batteries.
On the underside of the mouse could be plastic sticker with a phillips head screw (star) under it
Turn the Logitech wireless mouse on with the switch on the mouse.
Plug the USB receiver into a USB jack on the computer.
Try to use a free jack that's actually on the computer rather than one that's in a hub.
Test the jack first.
Try plugging in a printer and see if the printer is recognized--that way you know the USB jack is good.
USB jacks are notorious in that you frequently get a bad jack on a computer.


Turn off devices that are in the same frequency range as the mouse.
Logitech wireless mice operate at 2.4 GHz, which is in the same area as Wi-Fi routers and older cordless phones.
Start by turning those devices off and see if you can eliminate any causes of interference.
Test with wireless speakers too, then computer power supplies, monitors, cellular telephones and garage door openers.

Place the mouse on a flat surface that doesn't reflect. Avoid metal surfaces too.

How do yoou connect a wireless mouse to your computer


Connecting a wireless mouse to your computer is a great way to reduce clutter around your workplace.


Also, it is an alternative to using your laptop's directional pad.

Wireless mice work just as well as wired mice for most computing needs.


The only detail that wireless mice lack compared to wired mice is the DPI (dots per inch) and the frequency rate, which is essential to the "fast twitch" movements in gaming.


However, most people do not need highly responsive mice; therefore, wireless mice are perfect for any other computing activity other than gaming.


Insert batteries into your mouse.

If your mouse is rechargeable, charge it in the docking station provided with the mouse.


Buy a wireless adapter that works with your mouse. If your laptop is enabled with wireless technology or Bluetooth, skip to the next step.


Install the drivers for your mouse.

Reboot the computer to apply the changes.


Power on the mouse and let the computer recognize the new hardware. If you are using a mouse that requires software to run, enable the mouse in the software that is provided to you.

Hope this helps

USB mouse doesn't work.


Some USB devises are not compatible with USB hubs. They usually specify that they must be plugged into a main USB. This may be the case with your mice.

No mice work on my computer!I installed a wireless mouse, and now no mice work, the wireless, and normal keyboard does. How do I fix the mouse socket?


if it is PS2 then you need to reboot your computer in order for the computer to detect the PS2 device ( the PS2 device needs to be plugged in before rebooting )

If USB then try a different USB port and also check bios settings to ensure all usb keyboard and usb mice settings are all enabled.

You could go into device manager and delete usb hub etc and let windows re detect and re install otherwise go to
