Hi bobbii1968,

  1. Try replacing the batteries. Do not use alkaline batteries. Use ordinary Eveready battery.
  2. Check polarity when placing battery in mouse
  3. Ensure red infrared light is on. If on, there is hope in getting the mouse to work
  4. Plug in USB wireless receiver.
  5. Press button on receiver and below the mouse.
  6. This should work fine.
Update us again if the above does not work?

Thank you for taking time to read this.

Will this mouse work on a wndows rt surface tablet


You should have a receiver which looks like a USB dongle that is getting plugged into the tablet, unfortunately they don't offer any drivers from Windows 7 onwards. To sum up all this the mouse might not work because they do no provide the drivers for Windows 8

Purchased new laptop and wireless mouse, first day worked great, after a week tried to use mouse again.....just not working have replaced battery no luck


I would try unplugging the usb receiver and restarting the computer.
Then plug it back in.
Sadly, with these, along with replacing the battery, that's the only option.

I purchased a HP laptop, Windows 7. I installed


You have to install the software that came with the wireless mouse. I have several, and some will and others won't work without the software. That is 90% what it is.

Usb mouse not working on new laptop, was then all of sudden just quit


Is this a wireless mouse? If yes, you need to isolate the problem. Please follow the steps below:

1. Use fresh batteries.
2. Connect the wireless receiver/dongle into different USB ports of the computer.
3. Make sure that the mouse is turned on and then try to reconnect the mouse to the receiver by briefly pressing the connect button on the receiver and then hold down the connect button on the mouse.

Hope this helps and have a great day!

New hp wirless mouse quit working


Oh, you need to buy a new one or pay for repairs. You should have kept the warranty receipt for free replacement. Also, check the expansive HP Support online. It is just great. It has helped me personally out of many troubles.

Mouse thinks its alive (GE wireless optical 97990 rev.4)


Could be signal interference or overloaded usb port. Move receiver around to get a more direct signal, and notice any other devices in use like phones. Use alone without other usb devices plugged in and/or buy usb hub with power adapter. DO NOT buy passive usb hub with no additional power.

New mouse, still has problems


Some mice eat batteries like they are nothing. I myself have a logitec wireless mouse and i must replace the batteries every two weeks. I would suggest getting another mouse.
