I am attempting to install a Logitech LX8 wireless mouse to my desktop computer. I removed my old mouse and connected the LX8. However, my computer does not recognize the new mouse. The arrow head appears on the monitor, but will not move. I have tried both ways, (1)plugging the receiver directly into the USB port and(2) using the USB stand.

Re: Logitech LX8 will not work
When you pllugged in the receiver, did you push the little button on it? Once you did that, did you turn the mouse over and push the little "connect" button? I'm assuming, of course, that you put new batteries in it! Also, I'm assuming that the USB port is working. You could always go into the device manager and see if the device shows up. If it does, delete it and try to connect it again. If all that fails, you have a dead mouse.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Check to ensure that the wireless receiver is plugged into your computer. Press the "Connect" button on the bottom of the receiver to attempt reconnecting your mouse and keyboard to the computer. If your mouse and keyboard use Bluetooth, ensure that your computer's Bluetooth is active and detects the mouse and keyboard.
Check to see if the keyboard and mouse are turned on. If the power indicator lights on the keyboard and mouse are not green, press the "Power" button to turn the keyboard and mouse on.
Check the batteries of the mouse and keyboard. If the batteries are dead, replace them with fresh batteries and reconnect the mouse and keyboard to the computer by pressing the "Connect" button on the bottom of the wireless receiver attached to the computer. If your mouse and keyboard use rechargeable batteries, let the batteries recharge before using the device again.
Uninstall and reinstall your wireless keyboard and mouse drivers. Sometimes, the Logitech drivers are at fault for a bad connection. Use the Control Panel to uninstall the old drivers, then visit the Logitech website and install the latest drivers for your keyboard and mouse.
Search the Logitech Support Database. If your keyboard and mouse are still failing to function properly, visit the Logitech Support website and browse the support page for your product for specific solutions.
This has been a long time problem with Logitech and Aol. If your mouse software allows you to edit your mouse buttons, change the back button to "keystroke" and enter the back arrow key on your keyboard as the command. Alt left arrow also works. While you don't appear to have a forward button, Aol users who do, would change it to "keystroke"...Alt right arrow.

Is your mouse new? if new maybe got factory defect. did you try your mouse to other pc? if not please try. if encounter same problem then, mouse is really defective. if not then, maybe your pc cannot support the mouse to run in the system.
I followed the manufacturers instructions and made sure I did each step as per installation leaflet. Following the instrustions is always a good idea ! Sure the mammy told me that 50+ years ago.. . . but was I listening.B.W
