Re: wireless mouse not working
Did you try
Turn the mouse over and find the small
rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it to
Reset/Connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly.
If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press
the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or
Hope this helps you. Bud

I use Logitech wireless mice and so does my wife. After a battery change you have to reconnect the mouse with the wireless receiver
. First push the button on the receiver, then push the button on the bottom of the mouse. It should connect and you will be ready to go. If this doesn't get the mouse working, you may have to unplug the mouse, then plug it back in the USB port, then reconnect to the receiver. Hope that helps.
Try this, take batteries out and the receiver, leave out about a half hour, then reinstall them, make sure after installing batteries to hold mouse in front of receiver and click to the light comes on. good luck!
You should be able to reestablish connection by pushing and briefly holding the connect button on the receiver until the light begins to flash. Once it's flashing you can push and briefly hold the connect button on the bottom of the mouse. Once they are synched the light on the receiver should turn solid.
Try to take off battery and next push and hold down the small button that protrudes where the receiver is placed in the mouse, put back battery and simultaneusly release the button,it might make the mouse operate correctly.
If you know that the battery is good then try this next.
There is a VERY tiny shark-fin shaped spring-loaded button on the bottom of the mouse that is pressed in, when you insert the receiver, while the mouse is not in use, that turns off the mouse to save the batteries. If you haven't used the mouse in a while, it can get stuck in the in position, so that when you pull out the receiver, it doesn't spring out and turn the mouse on (indicated by the red light on the bottom). If you notice that the light isn't coming on. Just try manually pushing in the little shark-fin thing a couple times to make it spring back out. After a couple times, you should be able to get it unstuck and the red light should come on.
do you have the CD that came with the hardware???
seems like the PC can't communicate with the hardware. although it see something out there, but it doesn't recognize what it is.
even the machine is says this device is working porperly, you still need to install the driver, and the configuration for the device. that's why the receiver doesn't flash.
try to install the drivers and the configuration application.
