Dell wireless mouse

I have Dell wireless mouse that's been working fine for a couple of years and now stops working after a few seconds of use. Naturally I've tried fresh batteries multiple times...it's not batteries. The LED just stops working. I can push the green button and it will work for 10 to 20 seconds and stops again.

I have this problem when I use Kirkland batteries from Costco. I don't get it but when I placed brand new batteries in the mouse it worked and then stopped. Hit the reset button, it works and then stops. I replaced the batteries with Energizers, no problem.

I had this problem, but only when my batteries were dead. Check the contacts on the batteries to make sure they're working. Are all the buttons failing too? It might be a broken microswitch (or whatever they use these days). It sounds like you're looking at a new mouse if it's not contacts. Unless someone else on this forum has different ideas.

Most wireless keyboards and mice have their own wireless receivers (one that should be connected to the computer). The wireless receiver usually has a connect button that you need to press in order for you to connect the keyboard or the mouse. Try holding down the connect button on the receiver and on the keyboard at the same time for five seconds and release them both after five minutes.

If that work, do the same for the mouse.

Hope this helps and have a great day!

Mouse only works for a few seconds and then stops.


have you changed the batteries recently? Wireless mice seem to eat batteries faster. I have a Dell wireless mouse. It will work fine for months and then nothing. That's when I know to change out the batteries. If your batteries are fresh, make sure they are seated in their slots securely.

Dell Wireless Keyboard stopped responding, please help.


The keyboard should have a button underneath it. Press the button on the usb controller first and then the button on the keyboard. Repeat a few times to see if it connects. If you are still having trouble try another set of batteries as some batteries are not designed for wireless products.

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.

Wireless mouse quits working after a few seconds


Did you replace the batteries? This sounds like it may be the problem. A year is a lomg time for batteries depending on how often you use the computer.
After changing the batteries, you may have to do this:
Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud
