Re: wireless mouse quit working
Hi, does the usb port work with anything else? sounds like it does not, if you bought a new one and it still does not work. usb if this is a desktop buy a new pci usb card-if a notebook get a pcmcia or express card with usb, this has been a solution for me and others in the past. good luck, hope this helps you!

Does the mouse and/or keyboard have a "connect" button on the bottom of either? Try restarting your PC, then, if you have installed new batteries, and the mouse/keyboard is still not connected, try the "Connect" button if any.
This may seem weird and maybe not what you're looking for but- I have the same problem with my logitech mouse occasionally. The only thing that I have found that works is, I unplug the mouse and plug in my spare wired mouse. Usually after I use the wired mouse for about 2 hours I can plug in the logitech mouse and it works again. Sorry I don't have better advice for you but I know how aggravating it is and this works for me. Gook luck.
I think you said you changed the batteries. if so try the following.
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
