Hi again,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me" and the repeat use of FixYa.

Interesting concern, should be pretty straightforward. Anyways, pls try to:

  • update/re-install the driver from Microsoft Download page;
  • alternately, disable the "Allow the computer to turn off..." in the Power Management tab of the USB Root Hub Properties in your Device Manager.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you again for using FixYa.

I have a presario 2500 and was having trouble with my Genius Traveler 600 cordless mouse. The problem was eventually fixed by choosing a different USB port. For further discussion (since I don't come here often) you may write to me.

I had the same problem.
Press the button on the underside of the USB, the green light will flash. Now press the reset button on the underside of the mouse. Your mouse should now work.

My USB is not recognizing my wireliess mouse divice.

try to check if is it properly installed not just the hardware but as well as the software. Basically when we plug in a usb deice especially first time you inserted that device it sometimes need allowable time to install its driver. Also try to check if you computer supports plug and play device such as USB cause sometimes not all USB device are supported in all different types of hardware.
