Almost always, wireless mouse makes use of the USB port to connect its base/receiver. Depending on the exact model of the Dell desktop, there would normally be USB ports at the rear of the computer. Some others have 2 USB ports at the front or side.
Have you tried changing the port in which the USB wireless receiver is plugged?
Or is the receiver internal to the notebook?
If the receiver is internal, try updating the drivers for your machine by navigating to the manufacturer's support site.
If you plug a wired mouse into the machine what happens? If you get the same result, it may indicate a problem with the USB settings on your machine. I would, again, suggest updating the drivers for your machine.
If that's the case, try plugging another USB device into the machine and see if it works properly.
If none of those options provide results, I recommend you return the mouse for a refund or a replacement, especially if you have the receipt.
try this: plug in the USB key & check for the green light. Then go to start, control panel, & double click mouse (with whatever mouse works). Check the hardware tab and see it the computer is recognizing that the mouse is there. If it is there, it should be working fine. If not, then perhaps you need to reinstall the USB port drivers. Sometimes this will happen when you've upgraded from 1.0 to 2.0 USB ports.
Nothing other than the port that they plug into. New mice will typically use USB ports and older mice typically use a PS/2 port. Careful buying a new PC or Mouse, make sure that your computer has the port that is needed for the Mouse to plug into.
Okay, a coworker had this problem and it was a fairly easy fix, first, plug the USB reciever into a direct USB port, then pess the connect button on the underside of the mouse, when the red light starts blinking let go and then press it and hold, and at the SAME TIME press and hold the connect button on the receiver until both the receiver light and the mouse light turn on steadily, and voila!
ya..there is a small button on back side of the receiver..plug the receiver to the USB port and press the button for few secs and red light will start blinking..then a similar button is there for the mouse below it..press it and it will work fine.
Did you register the mouse to the receiver? There should be a button on the receiver, the bottom of the mouse or both used to connect the wireless mouse to the receiver.
Also, if you do not have a red light on the bottom of your mouse it may have a battery problem.
