Laptop going fritzo! when hooked up to wireless mouse
My laptop has had a wireless mouse attached for months. Suddenly last night my computer starts going fritzo... I just knew it was a computer virus. Ran an update and a virus scan... nothing! I kept playing around with things, even changing out the batteries in the mouse, then decided to try to unhook it and see what happened. After a few minutes my computer began acting normal... no more problems. Until I hook the mouse back up again. Then it goes fritzo. Unhook it and after a few minutes computer is back to normal. Has my wireless mouse had it? What is up?

Your wireless mouse and Keyboard work with the same wireless transmitter that is plug in into a USB port.of your computer. You can use the wireless mouse with that USB transmitter and dont use the wireless Keyboard. If you need a keyboard you can get one to be plug in into a USB port with the wire attach to the keyboard.
Hello, have you tried changing the batteries in your mouse? They are probably dead or dying and that is why it is not working. Also, try restarting the computer. If you cannot even use a regular wired usb mouse, there may be something going on. Try changing the batteries, restarting the computer, and using a regular usb and a regular PS/2 mouse.
1. press the black link button on your puck or key that connects to the PC usb port.
2. turn the only switch on the bottom to ON (to the right)
3. press the link button on your mouse on the underside.
4. double left click your mouse to make sure it will wake up and run
5. check it on another USB port
6. look for damaged pins in your usb port on the laptop
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.
Screen saver mode, as you know, is entered when the computer senses no activity (including mouse) for a defined period of time. for some reason, the computer thinks there's been some kind of activity. If you have an extreamly sensitive mouse, vibrations could be being picked up "tricking" the computer into thinking there is activity.
The other possibility is that the computer might not be able to respond to the mouse if it went into screen saver mode (perhaps a preference setting with the wireless mouse) and has decided that while operating using a wireless mouse screen saver will be deactivated. Look into your preferences or settings relating to the wireless mouse.
The BenQ M310 mouse needs to "sync" with the USB receiver. Need to push the two buttons at the same time, or maybe the one in the mouse first then push the button in the USB receive so the two can "sync" to each other. This may solve this problem. Good luck!
