The light of the optical mouse is used to calculate it's location on the screen. But, if you use the mouse on a shiny surface, it bounces back the signal to the mouse, making it impossible to calculate the position. Use a carpet or else, but not shiny.

My Gigaware optical mouse's cursor won't move


Sounds like the laser failed. Return it for replacement.

Mouse keeps scrolling through pages


This sometimes happens to optical mice when they are used on a reflective surface. Do this:

1. Make sure there are no dust inside the mouse sensor
2. Use a proper non-reflective mousepad

If the above does not work, then there may be a hardware fault with the mouse. You may need to have it fixed or replaced.

Yes, this is a result of the wireless mouse. If that mouse moves a hair, it could cause your computer to wake up. I recommend you placing the mouse in a more sturdy location between uses, or simply turn off the transmitter/receiver that controls the wireless keyboard/mouse. Sometimes a better mouse pad is all you need to reduce glare or to provide a surface with more friction to better prevent small bumps from moving the mouse round.

Have you tried the Mouse with another computer?
If you did and it worked, my guess would be a driver issue.
If you did and it didn't work there may be a problem with the mouse.
If you haven't the please do so and let me know what your results are so I can try to help you further.

Thanks

Mouse stopped working, but appears ok, batteries ok, can't determine problem


Hope this helps others. My mouse stopped controlling cursor but buttons worked. Problem was it would not work on a black table. Slip a piece of white paper under it and waaala! It works. I'm thinking optical mouse and dark surface might be an issue.

First, change your batteries. Next, make sure that after you push both link buttons (try to press them as close to simultaneously as you can) that you click the mouse button. Otherwise it won't actually link.

Mouse stopped working


I had the same problem. I find that a multi colored mouse pad seems to solve the problem. Actually the best ive found is a wood grain or striped mouse pad.
