Wireless mouse won't work, have replace battery, rebooted laptop removed and replaced mouse connection etc. Was working fine until yesterday


Is it not working at all or is it moving erratically across the screen? If it doesn't seem to be working at all, turn off your mouse then unplug the receiver's USB cable from the laptop for about 5-10 seconds then plug it in to another USB port. It may detect a new device, just let it do the automatic installation if it asks. You should here a 'tada' or ding sound when it is plugged in. When installation is completed or about 10 seconds after you hear the sound, turn your mouse back on.

If it still doesn't work, try shutting down your laptop completely instead of just rebooting it.

If it still doesn't work after that, make sure you have a spare USB mouse available then uninstall the software for your wireless mouse or mouse/keyboard combo then reinstall it.

Welcome to FixYa!

Here's a quick checklist to resolve your wireless mouse connection.

Solution 1.
1. If the underside of the mouse has an on/off switch, make sure to set the switch to the "On" position.
2. Make sure that the battery of the wireless mouse is placed correctly and is not drained.
3. After checking the first two steps, the optical lens on the underside of your wireless mouse should be flashing once in a while. If not, there is something wrong with the battery, the wireless mouse switch, or the wireless mouse itself is defective.
4. Connect the USB dongle in the USB port and let it install automatically.

Solution 2.
5. Connect the USB dongle in another USB port and let it install automatically.

Solution 3.
6. Restart the computer with the wireless mouse turned on and the USB dongle inserted in the computer.

Solution 4.
7. Download and install the drivers from here http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&softwareitem=ob-47909-1

I hope that this will help.
Thank you for using FixYa and keep me posted!

How do i connect my hp wireless mouse to the computer


The first step is to install its driver, after taht you can connect the wireless dongle into a free USB port of your computer, then put the batteries inside the mouse and turn it on, in the most of cases, the wireless dongle and mouse sinchronize automatically, if they don't, there's a small botton in both devices press it in each one to synchronize them manually.

I can't get my hp wireless mouse workn


Hi there,
The first thing to determine is whether or not you are getting a connection. Check to see if there is power on the device that is plugged into your computer. (The device which plugs in via USB). If you are not getting power to that, try a different USB port. If you are getting power to that device, follow Step 2:
The next thing to try is to look underneath the mouse. If you see a red light, it means the batteries are fine. If you don't see a red light replace the batteries. If that doesn't work, follow Step 3:
The next thing to check are the drivers on your computer. You will probably need a wired mouse to do this though. Unplug the wireless mouse, then plug in a wired one. Since I'm not sure on the model of your mouse, go to HP's website and click into the Drivers and Downloads section. Locate your mouse model number underneath the mouse or wireless transmitter, then search for the drivers. Once you have located the drivers, download them to your Desktop, but don't install them. Once they are downloaded, unplug the wired mouse from your computer, then plug in the wireless mouse and proceed to Step 4:

Before you install the drivers, go Start > Control Panel > Device Manager > Mice and Other Pointing Devices, then uninstall each mouse driver listed in here. You're doing this in case another mouse driver is conflicting with your current one. Reboot your computer. Once the computer is rebooted, go on to your Desktop and install that driver you downloaded from HP's website. Press the sync button on your wireless receiver (if there is a sync button), then try your mouse again.

1. Go to manufacturer's website and download the driver for the correct MODEL of the mouse.

2. Install mouse driver. Go "Control Panel" to configure mouse software.

3. o/s XP, right mouse click "My Computer" go Properties, Hardware tab, Device Manager, scroll down to "Mice and other Pointing Devices" to see if it is registered, and also check "USB Human Interface Device" in the same window to see if your usb connections are functioning. There should be NO YELLOW question marks in this window pertaining to USB and Mice Pointing Devices.

If it was a wired mouse with no name or model, you can just plug it into the ports and it will work. Unfortunately, since it is wireless, you MUST have the correct drivers(software that allows your computer to communicate with the device), and the only way you can get the correct drivers is through the manufacturer and choose the right model.

ALSO
The USB device has what appears to be a circle with dots connected to it facing the port. The dots are actually the word "Connect" in infintessimally small letters. Plug it in, then use your thumb to press down on the circle while using another finger to press up on the device's underside - in effect, squeeze it between your fingers where the circle is. You'll see a red light blink. At that point you can push the "connect" button on your mouse and it will work.

I tried the buttons but that doesnt seem to work


Are you able to view the red light on the bottom of the mouse? If not, your batteries are installed backwards. It's counterintuitive. The left batter is installed with the negative end exposed. Typically the sign displayed is what you should insert. Reverse the direction of your batteries, make sure the infrared light is visible and then click the green button on your mouse along with the connect button on your USB device.

HP 3 button optical wireless mouse


It is normal because the mouse is still picking up the "stand by" power of the motherboard.
It will very very slowly trickle away any charge you have in the laptop battery, but over such a long time you would probably not notice.
The mice on my desktop machines do the same thing, as I live in an area prone to electrical surges I shut down my machines and power strips every night and as soon as I do the laser light in the mouse goes out.
On my laptop I have a wireless optical mouse and when I finish using it, I remove the USB adapter, the USB adapter then slides into a receptical in the mouse and automatically switches the mouse off saving the mouse battery.
If it concerns you just unplug the mouse when it's not in use

MS wireless notebook mouse 3000 not working?


A friend of mine brought me this problem with exactly the same problem. here is what I found. The small notch in usb device socket under the mouse was malfunctioning. If you press this notch you will find the mouse red light blink. If you further try pressing this notch at some point the mouse red light comes on constantly. Thats it, hold it there and try to connect first by pressing the usb device connect switch and then the mouse connect switch. The moment the connection is made the usb device stops blinking and the red light on the mouse starts blinking. Wow, it works now. Some one might just open the mouse and fix this microswtich for a permanent solution.

Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse Not Connecting


After reading on Microsoft about replacing the batteries, down loading drivers and "press the button on the receiver and the connect button the receiver" - I got frustrated and almost gave it flight. Then my wife stepped in and realized that there was a green reset button on the USB connector as well. (who knew?) SO.... you press the green light (which is a button) and release it.... should blink. Then go to THE MOUSE portion and press the connect button for 5 seconds or so.... and wala...... One mouse that plays again! This ones gonna cost me! :) I hope this one works for ya!
