Plug-and-play mouse I have just recently bought an optical wheel plug-and-play mouse for my laptop but it doesn't want to work. Why is this happening?

    I have the same problem, i have a XP machine and it reconizes the mouse but then starts loading everything, and brings up a warning if i continue with the installation it will seriously damage my system. This also happened when we tried to conect an external keyboard. I have tried the mouse in my laptop and it worked perfectly.

Hey there Sash Marie,

I suggest you leave the mouse plugged in, and turn off your computer completely. Wait a couple of minutes and restart. Upon restarting it should rescan for all connected peripherals, and get things going. Alternately, if you are running vista, your mouse may not be vista compliant. Also there is the chance your mouse is faulty. I suggest you rule this out by plugging into another machine to test if it works.

Good luck and let me know howit goes.

this may not be a plug and play device - you probably need to download software that either came with it if you bought at a store or download online if not.

Cant get the optical mouse to work on my laptop.


Usually a mouse is all plug and play, once you put it in you can use it immediately. If its a wireless mouse you have to install a driver(cd allong with the mouse when you bought it) if its not supported by your Operating System.

Dynex wireless mouse DX-PWLMSE won't work


The mouse should be Plug and Play. Did you install the drivers before plugging the mouse's receiver in? The PC has to have the drivers first in order to take advantage of the Plug and Play capability. If you plugged the mouse's receiver in before installing the drivers, unplug the mouse receiver, uninstall the driver, reboot your PC, reinstall the driver, then plug the receiver in and you should be fine.

Otherwise, press the Connect button on the receiver first, and then the Connect button on the mouse, and that should establish the connection. You don't need to disable your touch pad in order to use the mouse.

I have the same mouse. What you have to do is first power off the mouse, then push on the green-lit button on the transmitter that you plug into your USB. (It doesn't feel too much like a button but you will see that it starts flashing.) Hold it down for about 15 seconds. Then power on your mouse and you will see that it should start working. I was frustrated too but got mine working.

USB optical wheel mouse not detected by XP


Hi, You can try to: Right click on "My Computer", click on Properties, click on the Hardware tab, click on the Device Manager Button, expand your Mice and other pointing devices. verify that you 2 entries. One is the Sony builtin (Alps in my Vaio) and a HID-compliant mouse. The latter is your external optical wheel mouse. Make sure it does not have any red or yellow mark. Double click on the HID and verify that the next window says "This device is working properly." If not follow on screen instructions to enable or activate. Hope this be of some help. Good luck and pls post again how things turn up or if you need further information. Kind regards.
