I had the same problem several times, the light basicaly means that there is power reaching it. Try reinstal ur usb drivers. If nothing, unplug it and look into the part of the plug that goes into the computer. I alway had problems with those little pins bending or breaking. If one was bent I would get a pair of pliars and gently straighten it. If it were missing i would attempt soldering a new 1 on (the latter only worked once). However this can distroy equipment and it would b advisable to contact profesionals

That is a Bluetooth Mouse. Your computer MUST have a bluetooth adapter or capability (Usually a laptop). You will use the Bluetooth control panel (not the add hardware wizard) to search for this device.

You need to install the drivers that came with this GE optical mouse so that windows can properly install and identify the new mouse. Pop the driver cd that came with the new mouse into the cd drive and follow the instructions. If you need more help, let me know ok?

My ge wireless mouse will not work. Everything lights up and I push the links and turn on but it does not work. I have a dell and have newest windows.

just to be sure, make sure you have new batteries in the mouse. Then go ahead and unplug the usb adapter for that mouse and then plug it back in and see if windows detects it properly.

If it does see if it works then, if it still doesn't work then the mouse is bad and would need to be replaced. Also if windows detects it but can't find the drivers, you'll need to use the disc to install the software for it.

Mouse only worked for a couple of hours

Do you access the internet? Go to Control Panel->Add Remove Programs and remove this mouse. Reboot. Then install the mouse drivers again and after a reboot attach the mouse. Allow Windows to detect the mouse and loadup its drivers.

Computer will not start after hooking up mouse

Try disconnecting the mouse and start again, I suspect a driver issue but with windows Vista that should not happen. But remove the mouse boot up, and try installing the drivers for the mouse before you connect it the the computer. This is a unusual case since Vista normal would detect the drivers automatically for you. Give me more info on this problem.
