Try to reconnect your mouses.
turn your computer off. while he's is on press the 'connect' button on the wireless receiver then press the 'connect' button on the mouse - give it time to connect. Test it.
Now power off his computer and turn on yours - do the same, 'connect' button on receiver, 'connect' button on mouse, wait, test.
Turn on his computer and see if one mouse will interfere with the other.
Connecting the mouses like this should assign them a unique/security identity that has the receiver acknowleging only the one mouse. But, should you bump the receivers 'connect' button while the other person is using their mouse, it is likely to change.

NOTE:: You may need to turn off the other mouse as you connect one - if there's no off switch, pull the batteries.

Can i get the wireless keyboard n mouse without the 2.4GHz usb receiver


The wireless mouse works by sending a radio frequency (RF) signal between the mouse and a USB receiver on the computer. Unlike a wired mouse, it needs batteries and it also needs to be switched on.

This problem is likely to be a lost connection. The connection between the mouse and the USB receiver can be lost due to several reasons such as:

  • Low battery
  • Moving the USB receiver from one USB port to another
  • Moving the USB receiver to another computer
  • Plugging the USB receiver into a USB hub or other unsupported device such as a KVM switch (your Unifying USB receiver must be plugged directly into your computer)
  • Using your cordless mouse on metal surfaces
  • Radio frequency (RF) interference of more powerful wireless devices such as:
    • Wireless speakers
    • Computer power supplies
    • Monitors
    • Cellular telephones
    • Garage door openers

Eliminate any problem sources mentioned above that might be affecting your device.

My iPhone 4 (4.1) doesnt get connect with Mobile Wireless Keyboard? (Mexico)


It looks like the type of keyboard and mouse you are using is not bluetooth. You can't use the iphone 4 with just a wireless keyboard. It has to be a BLUETOOTH keyboard.

The Keyboard/Mouse combo you have from verbatim is most likely using Radio Frequency (RF) like the same frequency a TV remote control would use. Bluetooth is a different type of wireless technology that has to be paired with your iphone for it to work.

It may not be any other interference; simply the distance from the mouse to the receiver. Also, check the bottom of the mouse, to make sure that nothing is blocking the optical sensor (the red light).

It's possible the Firefly remote is interfering. It's also possible the mouse is going bad (G7s have been around for a while). I'd contact Logitech and see what they can do for you - their warranty support for mice is terrific.

I have model CE 0560. New batteries are in. Pressed the dricer button which lights up. The redlight on the bottom of the mouse is on and flashing. The controls on the mouse do not respond.


You will need to follow the manufacturers instructions on setting up the mouse. Here is a copy of the instructions for download (Below is a viewable copy). Based on what you indicate, it is possible that the drivers are not loaded for the usb reciever or that one of the installation steps was not done correctly or completely. Please review the instructions and start from the first step.
Here are the instructions:

System Requirements To use the RF mouse, your computer must meet the following hardware requirements and run one of the operating systems listed below. Hardware • PC with a Pentium® processor or equivalent • USB interface • Mouse • Receiver • 2 AAA batteries • Three inch USB extension cable • Carrying pouch Targus Wireless RF Mouse Operating System • Windows® 98/Me/2000/XP NOTE: The third button and the scrolling wheel only work with the operating systems listed above. If you use the RF mouse with a different operating system, it will lose its enhanced features and function as a standard, twobutton mouse.

Connecting the Mouse Receiver To connect the mouse receiver: 1 Plug the USB receiver into an available USB port on your computer. 2 Your computer’s operating system identifies the receiver and begins installing the default driver. Follow any on-screen procedures to complete the default driver installation. Using the RF Mouse Installing the Batteries 1 If the mouse is on, slide the on/off switch on the bottom of the mouse to the “off” position. 2 Remove the battery cover from the top of the mouse by pressing the battery cover hinge located on the bottom of the mouse and sliding it off. NOTE: The battery cover is also the top cover of the mouse.
Targus Wireless RF Mouse 3 Insert the supplied batteries, making sure that the positive (+) and negative (-) ends of each battery match the polarity indicators inside the battery housing. WARNINGS: When replacing the batteries, you may use alkaline or other heavy-duty NiMH batteries. Never use an alkaline with a NiMH battery in a device. Avoid mixing new and used batteries in a device. 4 Slide the battery cover back into position until it “clicks” firmly into place. 5 Turn on the mouse be sliding the on/off switch on the bottom of the mouse to the “on” position. The optical sensor, located on the bottom of the mouse, glows red. Establishing a Communications Link The RF mouse has 256 identification codes that allow the mouse and its receiver to operate without interference from other radio frequency devices. After your computer detects the USB receiver and the driver software is installed, you must establish a communications link between the mouse and its receiver BEFORE you can use the mouse. To establish this link, you need to set the identification code so that the mouse works properly. To do this, follow the instructions below: Make sure that your computer is turned on and has detected the USB receiver before you establish a communications link. 1 Press and release the link button on the receiver.

Targus Wireless RF Mouse Receiver The USB connector rotates 90 degrees to facilitate easy connection to your computer. The receiver’s status light blinks when the receiver is activated. 2 Press and release the reset button, located on the bottom of the mouse. You are now ready to use the RF mouse.

Targus Wireless RF Mouse Operating Hints For optimal performance and RF reception: • Place the receiver at least 8 inches (20 cm) away from all electrical devices, such as your monitor, speakers or external storage devices. If necessary, use a three-inch extension cable to keep the receiver away from the computer. Plug the receiver into the extension cable, and the extension cable to the computer. • Avoid using the RF mouse on a metal surface. Metals, such as iron, aluminum or copper, shield the radio frequency transmission and may slow down the mouse’s response time or cause the mouse to fail temporarily. • The RF mouse will enter a suspend mode at the same time your computer does. To activate the mouse, touch the sensor strips on the side of the mouse. • If your computer has a metal case that contains aluminum or magnesium, use the RF mouse to the side. The display panel may interfere with the radio frequency signal if you use the mouse directly in front of the computer. • Never use the RF mouse on a glass or mirrored surface as these surfaces will cause the mouse to fail temporarily. • To maximize battery life, use the RF mouse on a white, or light colored surface. Dark surfaces cause the mouse’s light emitter diode (LED) light to glow brighter, which causes the battery to discharge more rapidly.
Targus Wireless RF Mouse Sleep Mode • The mouse’s sleep mode feature activates after 8 minutes of non-operation. • To wake the mouse from sleep mode, touch the sensor strips on the side of the mouse. • When the battery charge is running low, the battery indicator light at the end of the mouse glows blue.

Targus Wireless RF Mouse Troubleshooting What do I do if the RF mouse does not work? • Make sure that the polarity of the batteries is correct. The positive (+) and negative (-) ends of each battery must match the positive (+) and negative (-) connections in the battery housing. • Check that the receiver’s USB connector is firmly attached to the USB port on your computer. • Verify that the device drivers are installed. • Make sure you have established a radio link between the mouse and its receiver. See “Establishing a Communications Link” in sections above

Try cleaning the battery contacts inside the mouse with cotton and isopropyl alcohol, be careful not to spread liquid, or leave hair.
