MS wireless notebook optical mouse 4000

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X, Version 10.4.11
Trackpad works
However:

  1. MS wireless notebook optical mouse 4000 - Will not move cursor
  2. Mouse receiver - does not light up "green" when plugged directly into USB Port

I have tried:
  1. Replacing battery in mouse
  2. "Connect" on receiver and mouse
  3. Downloading and installing driver software
  4. Using receiver and mouse on a different computer
  5. Working "on/off" button under mouse. It seems o.k.
  6. Working "connect" button under mouse. It seems o.k.

Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Mouse Receiver from the USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When the program asks you to connect the Mouse Receiver to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

I have a Toshiba LapTop Windows 7 My granddaughter pushed keys and now i can't get the cursor to move. I have tried shutting down and it is still frozen in the middle .


Are you using the trackpad to manipulate the cursor, or are you using an external mouse?

If you're using the trackpad, it may be as simple as using the Fn keys and the corresponding F keys at the top of the keyboard to enable the trackpad feature again. If that doesn't work, try plugging in an external mouse via USB port to see if that works.
If you're using an external mouse, then try to see if the cursor moves while using the trackpad.

Hopefully one of these options will give you control back over your cursor again.

New MacBook Pro, getting use to it, has Snow Leopard. For some reason at times when using the mouse it zooms out, making everything smaller. What's up?


Click the Apple menu (upper left corner). Click System Preferences. Click Mouse. Un-check "Zoom using scroll wheel while holding control." See if that fixes the problem. I assume you're using the mouse, not the trackpad. If you're using the trackpad, click Trackpad in System Preferences instead. Un-check "Pinch open and closed" under Two fingers.

Good luck. Let us know if this solves your problem.

Hi - I have a macbook and seem to have locked the keyboard - if I plug a mouse in at the USB it works but the mouse on the macbook isn't responded, nor are any of the other keys - is there a simple...


Hello sarahscarah,

I've repaired a fair share of Macbooks with the same issue, but just to make sure it is what I think it is I'll need you to do a few things.

This issue is thought to be caused by a bent/warped ribbon cable that is located under the battery. This cable is what connects the trackpad and keyboard to the rest of your computer. To test if this is the problem do the following.

  1. Verify that an external keyboard and mouse will work with your Macbook when plugged in to a USB port.
  2. Connect your Macbook to your power adapter and plug into wall.
  3. Unlock your battery by turning the dial on the bottom of your Macbook with a coin.
  4. Remove the battery and set it aside.
  5. Press down on the exposed trackpad cable with your finger.
  6. While pressing down on this cable try typing on your Macbook's keyboard and moving the cursor with the trackpad.

If this works then you've solved it, you can place a piece of "Kapton Tape" over this cable to hold it down, but this is a temporary fix. You will probably need your trackpad and keyboard replaced. If your macbook is still under warranty take it to an Apple store, show them the problem and have it fixed or replaced. If its out of warranty you'll be looking at a $200-$300 repair to have the trackpad/keyboard replaced by a technician.

Here's a picture of the exposed trackpad cable for reference.

Hope this helps, if so please leave positive feedback. Thank you.

I have microsoft bluetooth optical mouse 4000 it suddenly stopped connecting to the receiver, as I cannot move mouse anymore


Just to clarify, this is a wireless optical mouse, right? Please try the steps below:

1. Use fresh batteries.
2. Make sure that the mouse is turned on.
3. Check if there's a connect button on the wireless receiver and underneath the mouse. If there is, try holding down the two connect buttons at the same time for five seconds and then release them both.
4. Try moving the mouse.
5. Make sure that there are no possible wireless interference between the wireless receiver and mouse like the base of a cordless phone, cell phone etc.

If same problem occur after doing the steps below, then you may want to contact the manufacturer for RMA. This Microsoft 4000 has a three year limited warranty.

Thank you!

Tap feature on MAcbook 2.4Ghz 2GB


I am running mac OS 10.5.5 and Win XP using parallels.  You need to make sure the system preferences in the mac OS to allow two fingers for secondary click using the trackpad. This allows you to right click in Win XP.
I find using two fingers and clicking the button works more reliably in windows xp.  I usually have to try two finger tapping a few times.

To right click by tapping: Go to System Preferences and choose Keyboard & Mouse.  Select "Clicking" and "Tap trackpad using two fingers for secondary click". This allows you to tap the trackpad with two fingers side by side to get the "right click" effect.  You can also right click without tapping with this setting.

To right click without tapping:
Go to System Preferences and choose Keyboard & Mouse.  Select "For secondary clicks, place two fingers on the trackpad then click the button". This allows you to right click by placing two fingers on the trackpad and then clicking the mouse button. 0acf97a.png
