Question about Gateway PC Desktops

1 Answer

First let me say this is MY FAULT! I have a Logitech mouse, which I wanted to use with my new laptop. So I tried to install the software, and deleted the installed mouse/pointer. THEN I learned that the mouse would run with native VISTA drivers, but first you have to uninstall the Logitech drivers. I can't uninstall because I can't point at anything.

I would suggest that you borrow a generic mouse from someone and plug it in the vista and then do that. Another option is to boot your computer in safe mode and then uninstall the drivers there as the mouse will work with generic drivers in safe mode.

On a Windows XP home and the mouse canot be seen on the screen. When reboot it works for a while then disapears. Went out got a new Microsoft mouse USB and same results.


Sounds like either a Windows fault (may need to reinstall Windows, after saving your important data) or a USB fault if you haven't tried the PS/2 mouse socket at the rear.

I bought a Logitech Cordless Optical Mouse for Notebooks-V220 to replace my cordless Microsoft Mouse. The P/N is 630-000031 Rev.002, but it will not download it says it is already used?? How can I get it...


First U have to uninstall any programs installed by first mouse... control panel - add/remove programs.
Leave the new mouse attached.
Then U have to uninstall the old wireless mouse device...
control panel - system - hardware - devices
Reboot... when it detects the device, load the driver for the new mouse from the new mouse cd.
U can load any programs U want from the new mouse cd after insuring the mouse works.

Have you uninstalled it and then reinstalled it? Try downloading the most recent version software online. If you can't download the software, you might have other issues!

Hi Mary,

Just uninstalling the software won't help. You have to see whether or not your PC detects the mouse on startup. If not, go to the System Properties in the control panel and look for any conflict signs in the Hardware List. If so, you will see a yellow/red triangle with an Exclamation mark in it. This indicates that a hardware peripheral is either conflicting or not installed correctly or drivers missing. Highlight that by a single mouseclick and delete that & close the wondow. Now go to Add New Hardware in the control panel & try autodetecting the mouse. If your OS asks for drivers CD simply insert the Windows CD in your driver & direct its path to autodetect the .inf file and autoinstall the default drivers.

As far as I feel, an opticla mouse such as the one you have mentioned should automatically be installed if you are using Windows XP.

Anyway, try the above and let me know.
