Re: my PC cannot see my mouse. please help.
Turn the mouse over and find the small
rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it.
This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly.
If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on
the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or
Hope this helps you. Bud

A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Disconnect the printer from your computer, reboot your pc, and unplug/re-plug printer into the power source to reset it. When everything turns back on, reconnect the printer into your computer. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. Try to print again.
I dont know if u have tried this or not. Unplug all the cables from the back of the pc. Make sure not a single cables is connected(power cable too). Then press the power button and hold it for 30 seconds and let it go after that. Then reconnect the power cable, the monitor, keyboard and mouse and restart the pc. Check if it is working or not. If it does not try a different mouse and if the different mouse also does not work I think a format will be required.
Clean the PC Mouse 1. Unplug the mouse, turn it over, then twist the retaining ring counter clockwise to remove it. Remove the trackball inside the mouse.
2.Clean the trackball with warm water and dry carefully. Clean the rollers inside the mouse with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol. Replace the trackball then secure it with the retaining ring.
3.Clean the outside of the mouse with rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball. Use a small amount on one area at a time. For an optical mouse, clean the bottom of the mouse and the surface it sits on with a damp cloth. Fix PC Mouse Problems
1.Plug the mouse back in. 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, then carefully plug it in making sure the connection is secure. Reboot the computer, and then test the mouse.
2.Connect the mouse to another computer. After the mouse is connected to a different computer, reboot the system, and then test the mouse. If your mouse works on another computer, the problem is most likely with your PC or operating system
3.Check for device conflicts. When you install another device on your computer it can sometimes cause conflicts with a PC mouse. Remove any new hardware and drivers you may have installed then reboot the computer.
4.Reinstall PC mouse drivers. In Windows, open "Control Panel" then "System." Select the "Device Driver" tab then scroll to and select your mouse. Uninstall any drivers that are listed. Unplug the mouse then reboot the PC. Reboot the system again, plug the mouse back in, then allow Windows to reinstall the drivers if prompted.
Here's a few troubleshooting steps. If it's a USB mouse, unplug it and plug it back in. If serial, reboot the PC. You can also unplug the USB mouse and try a different port. Try plugging in a different mouse as well.
Finally, hit CTL+ALT+DEL and check your applications tab to see if any program is not responding. Check Processes to see if anything is eating up your CPU. Do this by clicking on CPU once, then again. The most processor intense programs will be at top. If so, you may choose End Process at the bottom.
