Re: Mouse only works for a few seconds and then stops.
Have you changed the batteries recently? Wireless mice seem to eat batteries faster. I have a Dell wireless mouse. It will work fine for months and then nothing. That's when I know to change out the batteries. If your batteries are fresh, make sure they are seated in their slots securely.

To find out whether it is the mouse or the laptop do a system roll back to a time when the mouse was working well
Say a week ago.
If it does not work after wards and is still faulty you will need a new mouse.
To overcome the issue in the short term, try pluggingit in with an USBcable if it has such a port
This has worked for others:
First, power off the mouse, then push on the green-lit button on the transmitter that you plug into your USB. (It doesn't feel too much like a button but you will see that it starts flashing.) Hold it down for about 15 seconds. Then power on your mouse and you will see that it should start working.
Check with fresh batteries.. Did you sync the mouse with transciever? Push tiny button on transceiver, (maybe hold for few seconds) light flashes quickly.. then push tiny button under the mouse, light stops flashing. Try few times, maybe otherway round. If still not work consider defective.
Hook up a second mouse.Uninstall the device completely after disconnecting. Reboot twice. With the second mouse still installed, run the software to install the IRock, only using the new driver if possible. Leave the other mouse hooked up and reboot. It should work from there.
Try disconnecting the Mouse Receiver from the
USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When
the program asks you to connect the MouseReceiver to the USB
port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
I had this problem, but only when my batteries were dead. Check the contacts on the batteries to make sure they're working. Are all the buttons failing too? It might be a broken microswitch (or whatever they use these days). It sounds like you're looking at a new mouse if it's not contacts. Unless someone else on this forum has different ideas.
