Question about Computers & Internet
Try these three steps:
1. If your Laptop has more than one USB Slot, you might want to try that second USB slot and have the mouse connected to it.
2. Try the mouse on a different PC or a Laptop. See if it works on there. Sometimes it takes about 10 seconds for a PC to identify the new device thats just connected to it. So you might want to wait a bit and see if the mouse is accepted on the new PC your going to try it on or .... not.
3. If none of the above worked. Go back to your Laptop, then go to your Control Panel>System>Device Manager> double click Mice and other pointing devices>Check and see if your mouse is on there, if it is there, see if it is disabled or not. If it is disabled, just right click on it there and enable it. If its not there move to the next step.
4. Now its time to check the USB Slots, find any other device that you can get hold of, like a desktop USB keyboard, or a different mouse from anywhere just to test your Laptop hardware. See if it'll work! If they did, well!! You know what you have to do next!!. lol

From the Jasco website, some other options to try: Batteries: Tracking can be affected by low or dead batteries. Try replacing the batteries with a fresh set and test the tracking. Although you can use rechargeable batteries, alkaline batteries have been found to have the longest battery life. Interference with other electrical products: Other electrical devices may interfere with the radio signal that the mouse uses to communicate with the receiver. Try placing the receiver in a different location, away from the monitor, zip drives, and other electrical devices. Also, try rotating the receiver so it is on its side (or back). Range of the receiver: GE cordless pointing devices can transmit a signal up to 2 meters (appr 6 ft). Make sure the receiver and mouse are within the 2 meters of each other.

SOURCE: wireless mouse not functioning
Being a guy, I started years ago rapping things a couple of times to get them to work - until I destroyed an expensive digital camera!
To my surprise however, I gave my MSK1056 a few gentle taps and, voila, it works.

SOURCE: Retractable Cord won't lock
When fully extended (you have to hold the cord in place since it won't lock), slide the rectractable device down the cord until it is butted up against the USB connector. You can use the mouse with no problems like this. When you are done, slide the retractor back to the middle of the cord and the ends will wind back in. It's not a perfect solution but at least makes the mouse usable.

Gaming mice are not cheap,sell for $30 - 130. The cord on my RAZER DIAMONDBACK mouse went bad, I opened the mouse & repaired the broken wires.You have to unplug cord from inside mouse,the connection plug has very small barbs,so you have to pry the socket open a bit to unplug it.Once the cord is out cut the rubber part on the cord that connects to mouse that reinforces the cord.Cut it off on both side,pull out the remaining bits of wire.You have to enlarge the hole in the rubber grommet to reinsert the cord threw it,a heated wire the size of the cord works well to enlarge the hole.Run cord thew grommet splice wires,solder wires if you have a soldering iron makes the best repair,splice wires offset from each other,so they are not all sliced at same location.Use a good tape to isulate the spliced area on each wire,about 1/2 of tape per splice,Scotch Super 33+ Premium Vinyl Electrical Tape. Once you have taped each wire, tape all the wires together, for better isulation.Reinslall wire harness & test mouse.
