Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2000 stops responding

I've owned my Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 2000 and Wireless Optical Mouse 2000 for about 4 months now. I haven't had any problems with them up until about a week ago. Now, it seems that when I leave my chair and return minutes later... the mouse will not respond. The pointer doesn't move. And when you lift the mouse and check the red LED light... it's stuck in a "bright" shine mode. For those of you who own an optical mouse... you know that the LED alternates between bright and dim, based upon the movement of the mouse. The only way I'm able to return the mouse to operational condition is to remove the batteries and re-install them. Then, it begins to function perfectly. The keyboard is working fine, the receiver unit is within 12" of both the keyboard and mouse. There are no other devices within close proximity to the mouse or keyboard that might cause interference. I assume I'll just have to replace the mouse, but I thought I'd see if anyone else has experienced this exact issue.

    I have the same problem although my mouse only worked for a few minutes, then caused the buttons on the labtop to stop working and I had to restart the computer. The red light is on brightly on the mouse but it doesn't do anything. I have pressed the buttons to reset but it doesn't seem to work.

I had the same problem. I too thought it was the problem with the mouse itself but then just took a chance and changed the batteries. It worked. When the battery goes even a tad bit lower in its current supply ( I mean same voltage but lesser current) the mouse stops responding or is less responsive than usual indicating the need to change the batteries. Install the latest Intellipoint drivers from microsoft where it shows the battery level and change it as required.

MS Mouse Optical 2000, scrolls by itself, opens links and moves the cursor all by itself.

Interference from other wireless users was my problem. The signal coming from other offices around me interfered with my mouse/keyboard. I had to switch back to wired mouse/keyboard.

My optical mouse is working but not my keyboard

If all of the keys on your keyboard is not responding, then there's no connection between the keyboard and the wireless receiver.

1. Change the battery of the keyboard.
2. Make sure that the keyboard is ON.
3. Try connecting the wireless receiver into other USB ports of the computer. If same problem occurs...
4. Connect the wireless receiver into another computer to make sure that the problem is the keyboard and not the USB ports of the computer.

Otherwise, you may contact the manufacturer of the keyboard to verify if there's an additional driver that you need to install or if the keyboard needs repair.

Have a great day!

Replaced Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2000 doesn't work

I would have suggested opening up your old mouse and cleaning the right click button first.

Generally, wireless devices have a connect button that finds the frequencies of the devices. On the receiver press this button, then press the button on the bottom of your new mouse. the receivers lights will stop flashing once connected.

I'd like to suggest this. First, unplug the keyboard. Reboot your PC. Than plug in the keyboard and reboot the PC again. If the PC still doesn't recognize the keyboard, than the problem lies with the keyboard.
