This is a definite driver problem that Logitech is guilty of. They install their driver and remove all aspects of any other driver but their's. This is wrong but they do it anyway. (This solution I rank for the NOVICE troubleshooter at least!!)
First, make sure that the driver for the mouse is completely removed by uninstalling it from the"Add or Remove Programs"section of your Control Panel. Doing it this way should make the right changes to your registry, but Logitech is known for NOT doing this. Next, reinstall the touchpad pointer driver software from the CD that came with your PC. There should be a Driver directory or driver install program on the CD. If not, go to the Toshiba website and, making sure that you use your model number and style type locate the drivers section. They are located under downloads or Tech section or something similar. Then find the latest driver listed for your touchpad. Usually, the driver is an executable and there are instructions offered to run the install.
After you install the driver and the pad works again, go to your registry (Run/regedit) (after backing up of course) and go to (edit/find) and type
Logitech into the box (Just Logitech). Then click "Find all".
an entry should appear that has Logitech in it. either delete the entry, or change its value to 0 if a value exists. (I would write down where the value is located in the directory tree). click "find next" to see the next listing, and remove it the same way and so on and so on until all values for Logitech are removed. Exit the registry, and reboot the computer. You should be all set at this point. THIS IS OF COURSE, THAT YOU HAVE NO OTHER LOGITECH DEVICES ATTACHED TO YOUR COMPUTER!!! IF YOU DO, THAN DON'T TOUCH THE REGISTRY AT ALL AND HOPE THE DRIVER INSTALL ALONE DOES THE TRICK !! If you are afraid to edit the registry, than find someone who is familar with it and let them remove the values. I never recommend anyone who is unfimilar with how the registry works to go into it and make changes. It is easy to edit the registry, but one wrong typo can keep you from booting your PC. Changing logitech entries won't cause this to happen, unless you have other devices from logitech attached, and even the most that can happen is these devices won't work. Your PC itself should be fine though

    Make sure that the startup file has had all logitech entries removed. Go to "Run" , type "msconfig" (No Quotes of course) and click the "Startup" tab. Deselect any entry relating to Logitech that you can honestly remove. Click "apply changes". It will ask you to reboot, do so. Select the "Don't show this box again" when the PC (laptop) reboots and there you go.

Mouse touchpad not working


try installing the drivers for the mousepad

I cant get the mouse to connect to my laptop


Desktop or Laptop ?What type of mouse ??...
Enable a Mouse for a Laptop
Without the ability to drag and drop and point and click, a laptop computer is merely a desk ornament.
Most laptops are manufactured with a built-in mouse in the form of a touchpad.
If the touchpad fails or if you just prefer working with a mouse, it is easy to enable a mouse for use with your laptop.

Purchase a mouse that is compatible with your laptop.
You can find compatibility information on the manufacturer's website.
If the mouse is wireless, make sure that the USB receiver is included, or purchase it separately. The mouse will not function without the receiver.
Insert the batteries in the mouse if you are installing a wireless mouse.
The battery compartment is generally located on the bottom of the mouse.


Connect the USB mouse to the USB port on the computer.
If you are using a wireless mouse, connect the USB wireless receiver to the USB port.

Turn the computer off and then on again if you are enabling a standard mouse with a wire.
This will instruct the computer to run the "new hardware" wizard, which will walk you through the installation of the mouse, and your mouse will be enabled.

Turn the wireless mouse over, and locate a small indentation with a button.
You may need to use the tip of a pencil or pen to depress this button.
Simultaneously press the button on the mouse and the small button on the USB receiver.
This will initiate communication between the mouse and the receiver.
Hold the buttons down for about 5 to 10 seconds until the light on the mouse comes on.

Test the connection by moving the mouse.
If the cursor moves, you have successfully enabled the mouse.
If not, check that you have the batteries installed.
Try pressing the buttons independently of one another.
Press the button on the receiver until the light blinks and release it.
Press the button on the bottom of the mouse until the light on the mouse is lit.
This should enable your wireless mouse.

Wireless Mouse to Your Computer & Laptop
Connecting a wireless mouse to your computer is a great way to reduce clutter around your workplace. Also, it is an alternative to using your laptop's directional pad.
Wireless mice work just as well as wired mice for most computing needs.
The only detail that wireless mice lack compared to wired mice is the DPI (dots per inch) and the frequency rate, which is essential to the "fast twitch" movements in gaming.
However, most people do not need highly responsive mice; therefore, wireless mice are perfect for any other computing activity other than gaming.

Insert batteries into your mouse. If your mouse is rechargeable, charge it in the docking station provided with the mouse.
Buy a wireless adapter that works with your mouse.
If your laptop is enabled with wireless technology or Bluetooth, skip to the next step.
Install the drivers for your mouse.
Reboot the computer to apply the changes.
Power on the mouse and let the computer recognize the new hardware.
If you are using a mouse that requires software to run, enable the mouse in the software that is provided to you.

Laptop computers generally have built-in pointing devices such as touch pads that you can use to navigate the operating system on the go.
However, touch pads and pointing sticks are small and generally far from ergonomic.
At home, you might like to connect a full-sized mouse for greater comfort.
Computer mice connect in a variety of ways, and you should be able to find a mouse what works with whatever peripheral ports your laptop has.
As a general rule, any mouse that works with a desktop computer also works with a laptop.Laptops use the convenient touchpad and integrated scroll mouse that allow you to use just your finger to navigate Web pages, documents and open files and programs.
Just like all other hardware, the laptop's integrated touchpad and mouse can experience errors and problems that cause you to lose functionality for a length of time.
Whether the laptop's mouse is not working because of internal errors or conflicts with another device, several "tricks" can work to restore it.

Locate the function "Fn" button on your laptop in the lower left corner of the keyboard.
Look in the keyboard's upper row (the F1 through F12 buttons) for an icon of a touchpad or computer mouse.
This keyboard button acts as the toggle switch to enable and disable the built-in mouse and touchpad function.
Press and hold the "Fn" button together with the mouse icon button.
Look for the disable/enable symbol that briefly displays on your screen.
Slide your finger over the laptop's mouse and attempt to use it as normal.
Press the Windows keyboard key if using Windows 7, type "main.cpl" in the search box and press "Enter."
Press the left arrow key to navigate over to the "Device Settings" tab.
Press the tab key to reach the "Enable" button in this section.
Press "Enter" on your keyboard. Press the tab key to reach the "Disable internal pointing device" check box.
Press the space bar to remove the check mark.
Put your finger on the touchpad, and move the pointer down to the "Apply" button.
Click "Apply" to save the settings. Close the mouse "Properties" box.


Press the keyboard "Windows" logo key to open the "Start Menu."
Press the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate to the "Shut Down" or "Turn Off Computer" menu. Press the up or down arrow key to highlight "Restart."
Press "Enter" to restart your computer and attempt to use the laptop mouse as it should normally function.

Open the "Control Panel."
Go to the "Add and Remove" or "Uninstall" programs section.
Highlight any secondary mouse devices in the list that you have installed for your laptop, such as an external USB mouse.
Select the "Uninstall" option to remove any software and settings associated with this secondary mouse.
Restart your computer and attempt to use the built-in laptop mouse as normal.
Check to see if the mouse is working properly.

Press the keyboard's "Windows" button to open the "Start Menu."
Press the keyboard's arrow keys, "Enter" button and "Tab" to navigate to and open the "Control Panel."
Go to the "Hardware and Sound" section, and press "Enter." Navigate to "Device Manager," and press "Enter" to open it.
Find "Mice and other pointing devices from the list" and open its "Properties" dialog box.
Select the "Driver" tab and choose "Update Driver."
Allow Windows to search the Internet for drivers and to update them automatically.
Restart your computer after the drivers are updated, and use your mouse as normal.

Yes, the mouse most likely uses Bluetooth to communicate with your laptop and is independent of your wired/wireless connection to the internet. The mouse should have come with an adapter that plugs into one of your USB ports. Plug it in and once the drivers load (automatically), your new wireless mouse should be working!

Activating COT2 wireless mouse


Your ACME COT2 wireless mouse must have come in two pieces, the USB connector the mouse itself.
Insert the USB connector of your wireless mouse to your Toshiba Satellite and press simultaneously the button in your USB connector and the button in the wireless mouse. This is done in order to pair the mouse to the USB connector.

My mouse has stopped working on my acer laptop


Hi,
Do you mean the touchpad or a USB mouse? if its a usb mouse try another usb port, is it wireless? if its wireless check the battery.
if its the touchpad it may be turned off, to turn it on hold down the blue FN button and look at the F1 to F12 keys, one of them has a touchpad icon and it will disable and enable the touch pad, don't worry if your not sure try them all if you wish. You will probably learn something new while your doing it :-)
