Hi! For about a year now Ive had an ongoing problem with my mouse pointer. Online, the mouse pointer changes to a hand icon and will not "do" anything. Kathy


Go into Windows Control Panel - Add Remove Programs. Look for Logitech software and uninstall it if it is there.

Go into Hardware and look for Mouse, Delete the icon, ignore warnings. Reboot the computer. You may have to just pull the wall plug. When the computer reboots, it will find the mouse and load the generic Windows Drivers.

Just have the mouse- wont work. have batteries in, have receiver plugged in. computor say working correctly. but isnt working


Try this;
Go to (>) Start>Control Panel>Bluetooth
A window will open showing you all the wireless devices that are already recognised by your computer. If the icon for this mouse is shown there then highlight it and click 'Remove Wireless Device'. Then click "Yes" (Sometimes removing a device and then reinstalling it fixes the problem)

NOW

Click on Add Wireless Device ( a new window will open and the computer will search for the device. When it finds the mouse an icon will appear. Highlight the icon and click Next
The computer will load the driver for the mouse.
Once this is done the mouse should be working OK.

Also check this:
Go to (>) Start>Control Panel>Bluetooth
Click on "Bluetooth Settings"
Place a tick in the box next to "Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer > Apply > OK

How can i remove my cd ?


In the Finder (on your Desktop), you can usually remove your CD by
  • simply dragging the icon for the CD to the Trash (Trash icon will turn into an eject icon).
  • You can also right-click (Ctrl-Click) on the CD icon and Select "Eject" from the dropdown menu.

If your CD doesn't eject,
  • shut down your laptop;
  • press and hold the mouse key (press the click on the trackpad);
  • while holding the mouse key (pressing and holding the click on the trackpad), press the power key to restart the computer;
  • let go of the click on the trackpad after the CD ejects.

I want to remove some icons on screen


Assuming this is a Windows OS, just put your mouse cursor on the icon you want to get rid of, then right click on the mouse. Select the "Delete" and click the mouse again. The icon will be removed and placed in the "Recycle Bin". Keep in mind the underlying program is not removed from you system. Hope this helps.

Running horse icon constantly running on computer screen


The running horse icon that you are referring to is most likely the mouse cursor in "loading" mode. You can change this icon by going to your control panel, and accessing the mouse options. Select the "Pointers" tab and find the horse icon in the list of set cursors. Select the horse icon, and change what cursor is being used.
Alternatively, shut down some of your unused background programs, like any instant messagers and things like that. The idea is that your computer is constantly working on something. If you remove all that background work, then the horse will not appear as often.

My wife was trying to remove unwanted programs. Now the DVD player does not work. In the my computer icon, the DVD icon is not there. What can be done to repair this?


That icon is present whenever the _hardware_ is connected to your computer. So, removing "software" should _NOT_ have removed that icon.

Right-mouse-click on My Computer.]
Click Properties.
Click Hardware.
Click Device Manager.
Expand the 'DVD/CD-ROM' branch of the tree.
Your DVD-drive should be listed.
If not, shutdown your computer, and open the case.
Check that the "power" and "data" cables from the computer to the DVD--drive are connected.
If they are, it's possible that the drive itself has "failed", independent of the "clicking" done by your spouse.

Hello, The mouse for my Dell XPS 440 is problematic. The computer boots OK and the mouse's red light stays lit. When I use the mouse to select an icon, the pointer moves, but when selecting the icon with...


Hello,

its not a system problem, but a mouse problem.

The mouse is beginning to develop some faults and in no distance time, the mouse might not function again.

Go to Control panel of your computer and click on the Mouse Icon, check the settings and see if you could do some adjustments to make the mouse function perfectly.

But if the mouse still malfunctions, then I would advice that you get another mouse straight away.

I wish you all the best.

Logitech mouse problem


I assume there is no second mouse on the system and you are using keyboard commands. Try the following in the device manager..
  1. Press Control-Esc or press the Windows key on your keyboard to bring up the Start menu.
  2. Using the up arrow key, highlight "Settings."
  3. Right arrow key to "Control Panel" and press the enter key.
  4. Use the arrow keys to highlight the System icon and press the Enter key.
  5. Use the right arrow key to select the Device Manager tab. (For Windows XP/2000 , use the right arrow key select the "Hardware" tab. Now use the tab key, select the "Device Manager" button and press the enter key.)
  6. Use the "Tab" key to select the "Computer Icon" at the top of the list of device icons.
  7. Use the down arrow key to highlight the Mouse icon.
  8. Use the right arrow key to open the mouse icon and verify there is a mouse icon that states, "HID-compliant mouse," and another entry that states the name of your USB device.
  9. If there are any errors reported on these icons by exclamation points or red X's, highlight these icons using the arrow keys and "Tab" to the "Remove" button and press the enter key. (For Windows XP/2000 , highlight these icons using the arrow keys and then press Alt-A keys. From the "Action" menu, highlight "Uninstall" and press the enter key.) When the "Confirm Device Removal" box appears, press the enter key.
  10. Once these icons have been removed, use the Tab key to get to the "Refresh" button and allow Windows to re-detect the pointing device. (If u r using Windows XP/2000 , press the Alt-A keys. From the "Action" menu, select "Scan for hardware changes" and press the Enter key.)
  11. Use the arrow keys to open the Mouse icon again and verify that there are no errors reported.
  12. Power down the computer system and restart Windows.

Liquid on the electrical circuits, causes bad things to happen.
Do not replace the computer, until you exhaust all of your options.
Did you try the most simple solution of replacing the mouse?
Have you tried starting in safe mode? (with new mouse)
Otherwise: When you get the computer to start
Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on ‘My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "Human interface devices", if there is one). If there is some kind of a "Warning" icon superimposed on the 'Mouse' icon or any other icon, there is your problem!
If no "Warning" icons then try...
One at a time...
Double click on any of the devices that have 'Mouse' in the listings.
Click the "Properties" tab; look for any "Warning" icons
Un-install the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only. See instructions below.
Click on the faulty device and hit the remove button, follow the instructions given by the program.
Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.
