Logitech LX8 Mouse back button quit working on AOL
Have had no problems with wireless mouse on IE, Firefox, or AOL until this weekend and the back button quit working with AOL. Had earlier removed Windows Search from taskbar, but mouse still works with IE and Firefox. Have downloaded new Setpoint drivers and and contacted Logitech who said it's an AOL problem. So I'm hoping to get advice from the experts here.
Re: Logitech LX8 Mouse back button quit working on AOL
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.

Unfortunately,these devices(and I mean optical/wireless mice of all brands) are prone to failure because of tolerances.That's why,for the majority of them,they go for such low prices(in the big outlets).It may be that the very small contacts inside have given up the ghost. Better to get a new one than spend $ to figure it out.
To fix the problem, please press the connect connect button on the bottom of the mouse and the connect button on the reciever and relaese both the buttons together. this would rest the wireless connection and then the mouse should work fine.
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.
