Have you put the battery back in the laptop? Your laptop probably just needs charged. When it blinks it means it needs charged. Is the battery in the laptop correctly? Try putting it on charge. Hope this helps.

Nextech mouse through usb continues to install successfully, then freezes while trying to move about my laptop! No, it is not that the Lptp is working in the background, leaving the mouse to freeze th


Step 1:
For a standard trackball mouse, unplug the mouse, turn it over and then twist the retaining ring counter-clockwise to remove it. Remove the trackball inside the mouse. Clean the trackball with warm water and dry carefully. Clean the rollers inside the mouse with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. Replace the trackball, then secure it with the retaining ring. Clean the outside of the mouse with rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball. For an optical or wireless mouse, clean the bottom of the mouse and the surface it sits on with a damp cloth. Solve Hardware Problems Make sure the mouse is connected properly. The connector will either be USB or PS/2. A PS/2 connector is color-coded green and can only be inserted in one direction. Check for any bent or broken pins or damage, then carefully plug it in, making sure the connection is secure. Reboot the computer. Connect the mouse to another computer, then reboot the PC. If the mouse works after testing it on another computer, the problem is most likely with your PC or operating system. Also, try a different mouse on your computer. If there is no PC freeze, your mouse is probably malfunctioning. Switch to a different USB port. Sometimes mouse freeze will occur if the mouse is connected to a USB hub. Connect the mouse directly to one of the USB ports on your PC. Try different ports until you find one that works. Replace the batteries. If you have a wireless mouse, replace the batteries with fresh ones. Also, try using a different kind of mouse pad. Sometimes surface imperfections can interfere with the operation of a wireless or optical mouse. Install more RAM or memory. If your PC doesn't have enough memory, PC mouse freeze may occur when you are running resource intensive programs. Installing more RAM will help your PC run more efficiently. Solve Software Problems Check for device conflicts. When you install another device on your computer, it can sometimes conflict with a PC mouse. Remove any new hardware and drivers you may have installed, then reboot the computer. Reinstall PC mouse drivers. In Windows, open "Control Panel" then "System." Select the "Device Manager" tab, then scroll to and select your mouse. Uninstall any drivers that are listed. Unplug the mouse and reboot the PC. Plug the mouse back in, reboot the system, then allow Windows to reinstall the drivers if prompted. Remove viruses. PC mouse freeze and other serious problems can be caused by viruses lurking on your system.Set the program to run a complete scan every 24 hours. Also make sure the virus definitions are updated regularly. Turn off video acceleration. Sometimes video acceleration can cause PC mouse freeze. Go to "Control Panel," then click "Display," and then "Change Display Settings." Click the "Advanced Settings" button, then the "performance" tab. Set the acceleration slider to "None," then reboot. Repeat the process moving the slider up one notch until you have the maximum amount of acceleration with no mouse freeze

My wireless mouse has stopped working


Wireless mice require batteries, unlike many USB, products, which are powered by the USB port; a wireless mouse is one of the devices that are not. Manufacturers, such as logitec and microsoft, have cleverly concealed the batteries inside the mouse, either under the place where your palm rests (older models) whereas newer models may have a battery compartment door underneath.

The only part powered by your USB port is the transmitter (the 'dongle') that is plugged into the USB port . You have to change the batteries every once in awhile. Some models put themselves into a sort off standby/off mode if you don't touch them for a certain period of time; others have tiny On/Off switches underneath. If you have one of those, remember to turn your mouse off, overnight, or when you aren't going to use it for long periods of time.

The mouse does not work at all. I put in new batteries and still does not work. I had problems with my computer and since that is fixed the mouse does not work.


Hello, Allow me to try to figure this out here.

Your saying batteries and mouse so may i assume this is a wireless mouse for a moment?

Okay once you replace the batteries in the mouse you need to unplug the little transmitter from the computer, Reboot, Then plug it back in.

This would allow it to re-sync being that its infra red or otherwise.

So try that. Take out the little transmitter thob, reboot, plug it back in, the mouse should be working again.

1.Check the batteries are they in backwards?
2.Check the battery connectors inside,

Now if this is a IMAC or something like that quickly let me know!

Thanks for using fixya.com I hope this was very helpful.

Regards

My acer mouse model number mg-0919 stops working after about 2 minutes. I have to turn the mouse off then back on. This happens constantly. What is going on? Is it defective? My mouse is under...


I had the same problem. This mouse came with my Acer Revo which was still under warranty. Tech support basically says to check the obvious (batteries, USB connection, RF interference). Their obviously canned answer goes on to detail a manual reconnect procedure that does not apply to this model. And when all else fails, get a new mouse.
This is what Acer tech support emailed me:
If you are experiencing issues with your wireless mouse not working properly, perform the following steps to troubleshoot the wireless mouse.

1) Ensure that the receiver is 8-inches from other electrical devices. Avoid placing the cordless devices on metallic surfaces.

2) Verify that the USB connector from the receiver is properly plugged into a USB port on the computer. Try plugging the receiver into a different USB port to ensure that the USB port is working properly.

3) Remove the batteries and then reinsert the batteries into the mouse, making sure that the battery polarities are correct.

4) Test the batteries to ensure that they still have a charge.

5) Try the manual connect procedure.

Manual connect procedure:

1) Press and release the Connect button on the receiver.

2) Within 30 seconds, press and release the Connect button on the mouse.

If the issue persists, we can replace your computer's wireless mouse.

We will ship the new wireless mouse within 3-5 business days.

Before placing an order for wireless mouse we would like to confirm the following.

1) Complete shipping address:

2) email address:

3) phone number:

In order to place an order for wireless mouse, the computer must be registered.

The "mouse" on my Hp Pavillion laptop stopped working last night---it will not move the cursor. Can I fix this and if so, please explain in basic layman's terms so I can understand the instructions?


Is this a wireless mouse, or a wired one? If it is wired, there could be 1) so much dirt between the ball and the contacts inside the mouse housing that it won't move (usually there is a way to remove the ball and use tweezers to try and remove all the accumulated stuff); 2) the connection (plug) could have worked loose. Pull the plug out, reinsert it, and reboot. 3) the cord could have a bend or been steppedon and have a poor or no connection. A new mouse is in order. If it is a wireless mouse, batteries are the probable culprit. We put new rechargeable batteries in less than a week ago in ours, and even though our mouse goes in a charger when we are not using it, it would not work until I put new rechargeable batteries in. Remember - even new things can be bad.
