You need to plug in the USB reciever load windows till desktop appears, hold down the reciever button until it flashs then quickly turn over mouse and press connect button in. and you should see the reciever flicker, and it should start working. if it dont try swapping the batterys as they dont last long...and repeating the same process Hope this helps John

    I read other solutions that said the same thing but this one was in detail. I didn't know the usb receiver would flash. I held it down for a few seconds and seen the flash, then hit the connect button under the mouse and it worked. Thanks.

Throw this mouse against a brick wall. It's a piece of junk. It's not even worth 2 dollars, I cannot believe I spent 15 dollars on it. Now take the other piece, and go around wacking people in the head with it.

I have #97990. The batteries are done within a half of a day, even when I switch it off

Replace the rechargeable batteries. Even rechargeable batteries only can be recharged so many times and then they will not hold a good charge.

GE Wireless "Malfunction" "Unknown Device"

Does the mouse and/or keyboard have a "connect" button on the bottom of either? Try restarting your PC, then, if you have installed new batteries, and the mouse/keyboard is still not connected, try the "Connect" button if any.

Normal 0 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 glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud

Mouse thinks its alive (GE wireless optical 97990 rev.4)

Could be signal interference or overloaded usb port. Move receiver around to get a more direct signal, and notice any other devices in use like phones. Use alone without other usb devices plugged in and/or buy usb hub with power adapter. DO NOT buy passive usb hub with no additional power.

GE Wireless mouse 97990 Rev 4 stopped working

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.
