Re: ISB Port

You mean, USB. USB's have 5.0 volts power supply with current limit and protection. this means that up to certain extent, if you encounter a short circuit from the USB device, the port is well protected. However there will be instances when a defective USB device is plugged in the port will damage the port. There is most probably a small PCB mounted fuse that needs to be replaced. This will be difficult to find and should be sent to a qualified service center. On the other hand, you can buy a PCMCIA (cardbus) USB adaptor for less than $30 and you will have 2 or even 4 ports in your machine.

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.

Hi, Ausus Laptop Gaming. Use to use Logitech wirelewss keyboard and mouse over 3 years no issue. Just today only the mouse stop working, change battery, restart comp., not even the laptop mousepad...

Make sure your mouse and keyboard are close to the receiver (the thing you plug into a usb port). Also make sure you plug the receiver into another usb port because maybe some of those ports are incompatible with the receiver or some ports may be failing. Last, make sure you install the driver (program that came on the cd for your equipment) on the computer.

I have the power cord plugged in all time when using it because battery no good. I then plug in the mouse and things are fine. If i pull the power cord too far or wrong way it comes unplugged from laptop...

Well, if you have a faulty battery and the your power source is lost, the USB obviously won't work either. Sometimes when there's a sudden loss of power, the computer's devices won't function properly. A hiccup in the programming will mess them up. I would suggest getting a new battery. I hope this helps.

Hello how do i get the wireless mouse to work on my laptop? i have it plugged in but it doesn't work

1. Put in the batteries Find the battery cover and slide it off. Insert the appropriate batteries. The wireless receiver that plugs into the computer runs off the computer's power and needs no batteries.

2. Plug in the receiver to the computer. Usually the receiver will plug into the USB port, but some plug into the mouse port. If all of your USB ports are filled, see if the mouse came with a USB adapter. The adapter fits into the mouse port. Be careful not to accidentally force the mouse adapter into the keyboard port.

3. Connect the mouse once you have it plugged in. The receiver should have a visible button that is easily pushable by the average human finger. The mouse will usually have a very small hole with a button inside it that can only be pushed by something like a pencil or paper clip. Push both buttons at the same time with the receiver and the mouse relatively close to each other for about 5 seconds or more.

4. Position the receiver in a place that isn't far away from the mouse. Depending on where you are, you can place it on the monitor, on the tower, on the back of your laptop (if you are installing the mouse to your laptop) or on the desk. The furthest a wireless mouse can get away from the receiver without not working very well is about 9 feet (2.7 meters), so keep that in mind.

5. Test your new mouse.
- If you plugged into the mouse port, restart your computer manually.
- If you plugged it into the USB port you may begin using it.
- 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 help. Goodluck!

My retractable mouse just stopped working in the plugged usb ports on my laptop. I plugged into another usb port and it worked then I unplugged it to try putting it the other ones that worked before and...

Leave it plugged in and reboot the system...See if that works. Usb ports can be finicky sometimes, but they are reset when the system is booted up. Otherwise, check to make sure you have an adequate power supply to the laptop.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
