Question about GE Wireless Optical Mouse
My mouse just suddenly stopped working. I have changed the batteries and I have tried to re-link the mouse. Nothing has worked. I have unplugged things and plugged them back in, hit the link button simultaneously along with pushing the mouse button and nothing has been successful
From the Jasco website, some other options to try: Batteries: Tracking can be affected by low or dead batteries. Try replacing the batteries with a fresh set and test the tracking. Although you can use rechargeable batteries, alkaline batteries have been found to have the longest battery life. Interference with other electrical products: Other electrical devices may interfere with the radio signal that the mouse uses to communicate with the receiver. Try placing the receiver in a different location, away from the monitor, zip drives, and other electrical devices. Also, try rotating the receiver so it is on its side (or back). Range of the receiver: GE cordless pointing devices can transmit a signal up to 2 meters (appr 6 ft). Make sure the receiver and mouse are within the 2 meters of each other.

Check the curly wire that butts the battery. I have had to pull it out a bit to ensure a snug fit. It seems that it is a silly millimeter off, and that is what causes it to stop.
However, I just dropped my laptop, and bent the usb .... can you buy just that?
