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?

Xp/vista/w7/w9/w10/ linux ,what.... must we guess?
is your internet connection working? it must or PNP will be near brain DEAD ,do that first.
ok guess w10.
why not see if OTHER USB works first
barrow a real mouse not that battery dead wireless wonder mouse?
get a real mouse
make sure that works
then put in a new battery in your wireless mouse
RTM it tells you how
USB tests, all so obvious.
use real desktop key board , that work
or USB memory stick , add file to it, see other files you have there>?
only clues here is USB dead, 2 months old.(means new? or new to you?)
go to CP
then go to device manager
see yell or red error there that driver stack?
bingo bad driver
reload any that are bad.
google how to reload a windows 10 driver, be like 10,000,0000 hits.
Make certain the driver for your touchpad is running- usually it is synaptic- would be found under syntpenh.exe in your task manager. Make certain it is enabled in the mouse properties. If that does not work, then connect an external mouse and then disconnect it... sometimes that kicks the service back into starting correctly
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.
reset the network settings both on the computer and your router and start again. go to the website for your router and enter the ip or mac address for your wirless card and enable it on your network. to get your computer to recognise the network, turn off wireless, plug it in the local area connection first then for a few minnutes then enable the wireless and unplug the wire and it should recognise.
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!
First turn off your computer let it rest for about 5 minutes. Then restart it again. Usually this is all what systems need. Next try checking the usb attached to the computer before turning it on again. Plug and unplug it. If there is no major problem on your mouse. This should do the trick. Please dont forget to rate me. Thanks!!!
I puzzled over this for months, and then discovered it was because my thumb, normally attached to a mouse, was touching the board. Easy smeazy. Either wait until your habits can change, and not touch the touchpat with your thumb, or get a plug-in mouse.
