Connecting a wireless mouse to your computer is a great way to reduce clutter around your workplace.


Also, it is an alternative to using your laptop's directional pad.

Wireless mice work just as well as wired mice for most computing needs.


The only detail that wireless mice lack compared to wired mice is the DPI (dots per inch) and the frequency rate, which is essential to the "fast twitch" movements in gaming.


However, most people do not need highly responsive mice; therefore, wireless mice are perfect for any other computing activity other than gaming.


Insert batteries into your mouse.

If your mouse is rechargeable, charge it in the docking station provided with the mouse.


Buy a wireless adapter that works with your mouse. If your laptop is enabled with wireless technology or Bluetooth, skip to the next step.


Install the drivers for your mouse.

Reboot the computer to apply the changes.


Power on the mouse and let the computer recognize the new hardware. If you are using a mouse that requires software to run, enable the mouse in the software that is provided to you.

Hope this helps

prior mouses were cable connection required to acheive functionalities.

The microsoft wireless mouse stopped working after a power failure. I get a message that says the USB device is not there. But I cannot navigate my computer w/o the mouse


The Microsoft wireless mouse comes with a wireless receiver, right? Before you do anything, the first thing that you can try is to replace the batteries with fresh ones.

If same problem occur, try to connect the wireless receiver into different USB ports of the computer. Then check if your wireless receiver and mouse has a connect button. If it does have connect buttons, briefly press the connect button on the receiver, then hold down the connect button on the mouse for 5 seconds. Then release the connect buttons.

If you get the same problem, hold down both connect buttons (receiver and mouse) at the same time for 5 seconds.

Last, try to connect the wireless receiver into different computer. If you get the same problem, send the receiver and mouse to the manufacturer for repair.

Thank you and good luck!

Wireless USB works, but mouse itself doesn't


Sir/Mam good day,

Is your mouse device also wireless? you need to resync it with it's receiver,
you may follow the methods below to make your wireless usb mouse works.

You need to press the button on your wireless mouse receiver, and make sure that the light on your wireless mouse
receiver blinks. But you need take note that some newer model of microsoft devices are permanently fixed to their receiver
and can't be reset. If your devices don't have a button, here's what to do:

If a dialog box appears on the screen in how many seconds, you need to follow the instructions from it. Or else, you need
to do this:

press and release the connect channel button on your wireless mouse, and make sure that the light from your receiver works
and the status on it's light is steady. If this happens then the synchronization is successfu. But if the problem is still
the same you need to repeat the previous steps once again.

As for the wireless mouse for notebook, this problem come out when the micro switch on the underneath of the mouse was not
released. You can use a pencil or anything with a sharp point to released it.

There are a lot of options why your wireless mouse receiver won't work, and a lot of solutions. Here's some of them:

*Try different ports on your computer, if the connection to some usb ports are not working you can connect to other ports
and see if it will work.

*And also the cables that are included with the wireless receiver, try to use another cables if the
device is still not working.

*If you're device is connected to a usb hub, disconnect it from the usb hub and directly connect it to
the available ports on your pc and see if it will work.

*When fixing this type of problem you need to have only one usb device
connected to your computer, which is in this case, your usb wireless mouse.

*When you have other usb devices, you need to
plug it out.

*If the methods mentioned previously still won't work, you need to reinsert your
wireless mouse batteries or install a new one.

*Another possible remedy to this problem is checking the interference, your wireless
usb mouse together with its receiver should be a distance away from anything that
transmits signals such as cellphones, radios or other similar devices. And also
any metal objects. because such things might interfere with the signal of your
wireless mouse.

* If the problem persists after doing all of the above steps, maybe it's time to update
your wireless mouse drivers, For installing latest driver update with your wireless
mouse, see the documentation that is included in your wireless mouse.

* If all of the methods above did not solve your wireless mouse problem. You can
connect your wireless mouse to another working computer to see whether the problem
lies with your wireless mouse or to the computer which your wireless mouse is
connected.

Final instruction:

If all of these methods fail, you better have your wireless usb mouse be check
by a professional computer technician in order not to further damage your device.

Hope this helps. Good luck and God bless

I have an hp wireless mouse, and it doesn´t work!! Tried everything...


Wireless device like the mouse needs a wireless connectivity to a computer like a bluetooth or a wireless receiver. Make sure that your mouse batteries are all working and the wireless receiver is properly plug into the USB(Universal Serial Bus) port of the computer. The wireless receiver don't need battery so you don't have to worry about it. The two both have a push button, press both buttons to activate the connection. Wireless connections has limit in distance so make sure that you are not too far away from the receiver while using the mouse and that is 9 feet or 2.7 meters so keep that in mind. When the cursor moves when you move the mouse, you have connected the mouse properly. If the cursor doesn't move, try repositioning the receiver. If it still doesn't work, you may need to restart your computer (if you haven't already) or reconnect everything.

Hope this could help you a lot..:-) Thanks..

My case logic optical mouse will not link up


Is this a wired or wireless mouse?

If this is a wired mouse, try connecting it into different USB port or different computer so that you would know if there's a problem with the USB ports or with the computer or with the mouse.

If this is wireless, try the following:

1. Replace the batteries of the mouse.
2. Make sure that the mouse is turned ON.
3. Try connecting the USB wireless adapter of the mouse into different USB ports.
4. Connect also the adapter into different computer.
5. Make sure that there's no interference between the adapter and the mouse such as wireless phones, cell phones and other wireless devices.

Wireless mouse, cordless phones and cellphones are all running at 2.4Ghz frequency, so if there's a wireless device that's running on the same wireless freq, then it would interfere with the mouse that would cause the mouse not to work.

If same problem occurs after checking everything, then contact the manufacturer of the mouse for RMA (repair).

Have a great day!

You can also contact microsoft (if its less thana year) and they will send you a new one.
