Re: how do I open the receiver for my wireless mouse to...
The receiver is plugged into a USB port and doesn't use batteries. The keyboard and mouse use batteries and they need to be replaced ever so ofter. to do so, follow thes instructions.
Are your batteries in the Keyboard and mouse good?
Press the Receiver button (and the lights will start flashing, then if its the
Keyboard isn't working, press the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back
of the board to connect.
If the MOUSE isn't working, do the same except push the small RESET?CONNECT button on the
back of the mouse to connect. Then they should work properly. Hope
this helps. Bud

Cutting down on the number of wires
that must be tolerated in a work station adds to maneuverability and
ease of location. For all their convenience, though, wireless
accessories bring with them a number of issues not present in their
wired counterparts, most significantly battery change. Instructions
Turn off the mouse.
Remove the top of the top of the battery compartment. The button that releases it is located toward the rear of the mouse.
Remove the old battery and place the new one in its place. Replace the cover and turn the mouse back on.
Press the "button with the star symbol" while prying up the top cover of the mouse's body to replace the batteries. If the batteries have power, the LED on the underside of the mouse will illuminate.
Plug the receiver component into an open and working USB port on your computer. Your computer should make a noise when the receiver is connected, and the system tray will show that you have connected new hardware. Some USB ports may not be compatible, so it is important to try several ports to find one that works.
Press and hold the "connect" buttons on the underside of the mouse and on the receiver for several seconds to refresh the connection. An interrupted connection will cause jerky or inconsistent on-screen performance of the Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000.
Follow these steps : 1. Check to see if your laptop supports wireless technology (Bluetooth, 802.11 or other). If it doesn't, you will need a wireless receiver. If it does, verify that your laptop is compatible with your wireless mouse, which could use either Bluetooth technology or a radio signal.
2. Unpack your mouse and open its battery compartment. The wireless mouse won't receive any power from the laptop, making batteries necessary.
3. Add new batteries to the compartment. Make sure that the + battery end is inserted into the + niche in the compartment.
4. Place the mouse where it is easy to use and least stressful on your fingers.
5. Place your wireless receiver appropriately if your laptop doesn't support wireless technology. The receiver should be kept at least 8 inches away from the laptop or any other object that would cause any interference.
6. Place the wireless receiver anywhere from 8 inches to 6 feet from the mouse.
7. Insert the driver CD into your laptop and follow the instructions to install the software for running the mouse.
8. Connect your receiver to the laptop by plugging in the mouse's USB connector to the USB port of the laptop. If you do not have a free USB port, simply use an external USB hub for more ports.
I had the same problem. This mouse came with my Acer Revo which was still under warranty. Tech support basically says to check the obvious (batteries, USB connection, RF interference). Their obviously canned answer goes on to detail a manual reconnect procedure that does not apply to this model. And when all else fails, get a new mouse. This is what Acer tech support emailed me: If you are experiencing issues with your wireless mouse not working properly, perform the following steps to troubleshoot the wireless mouse.
1) Ensure that the receiver is 8-inches from other electrical devices. Avoid placing the cordless devices on metallic surfaces.
2) Verify that the USB connector from the receiver is properly plugged into a USB port on the computer. Try plugging the receiver into a different USB port to ensure that the USB port is working properly.
3) Remove the batteries and then reinsert the batteries into the mouse, making sure that the battery polarities are correct.
4) Test the batteries to ensure that they still have a charge.
5) Try the manual connect procedure.
Manual connect procedure:
1) Press and release the Connect button on the receiver.
2) Within 30 seconds, press and release the Connect button on the mouse.

Wireless device like the mouse needs a wireless connectivity to a computer like a bluetooth or a wireless receiver. Make sure that your mouse batteries are all working and the wireless receiver is properly plug into the USB(Universal Serial Bus) port of the computer. The wireless receiver don't need battery so you don't have to worry about it. The two both have a push button, press both buttons to activate the connection. Wireless connections has limit in distance so make sure that you are not too far away from the receiver while using the mouse and that is 9 feet or 2.7 meters so keep that in mind. When the cursor moves when you move the mouse, you have connected the
mouse properly. If the cursor doesn't move, try repositioning the
receiver. If it still doesn't work, you may need to restart your
computer (if you haven't already) or reconnect everything.
The receiver should not have a battery. It gets its power from the USB port. Try uninstalling both keyboard and mouse via (Control Panel...Device Manager) and reinstalling them. Sometimes the drivers get corrupted and reinstalling them will fix that. Also there are on/off switches on the mouse and maybe the keyboard. Check that someone hasn't turned them off to save batteries when not in use.
try installing the software that came with the mouse. if none came with it then go to the manufacturers website and down load the drivers. if none available then there might be something physically wrong with the mouse and you replace it.
