    my GE 98763 wireless mouse is not working, where can i get a driver for it? Is it supported by Windows Vista?

  • puppymommo Jan 08, 2008

    Same product, simliar problem. Bought mouse GE wireless 98763, installed it and it worked fine. Yesterday I had the motherboard on the computer replaced and now I can't get the mouse to work properly. I have gone into control panel and tried to reset the mouse properties but it will not allow me to set the left button for double-click. I tried the jasco support site and there is no driver listed for this model.

    I have a targus wireless notebook laser rechargeable mouse. My computer no longer recognizes it after it crashed unexpectedly for the first time. Other things don't work also, like my touch pad driver is said to be corrupt, and that I have to uninstall it to access my mouse settings. If I do, then I will not even be able to seach for a targus mouse driver. HELP!?!?

I kept hold about 30 seconds the blue light button on the USB controller device and it worked!. I guess that's the way to sinchronize both the mouse and the USB controller of the mouse. Ramón.

Ok my sister just told me her mouse in not working tried 2 other mouses still not working...any ideas

Posted on Nov 22, 2009

I had the same problem with my new optical mouse. I have a wireless USB mouse, but was tired of changing batteries on it and so I bought a new corded optical mouse that uses a PS2 port. The new mouse didn't work and I searched the entire web endlessly looking for a solution and almost giving up on it.

Any way here is the solution I found that fixed it for me:

1) Control Panel -> Systems -> Hardware -> Device Manager

2) In Device Manger window go to the View menu and select Show hidden devices

3) under Mice and other pointing devices, for me, there was a yellow question mark next to PS2 port. After I right click and uninstalled the PS2 port (with the yellow question mark next to it), my computer automatically shut down and rebooted. I was able to use my optical mouse in the PS2 port afterwards.

I got the solution from another site. It may or may not work for you.

I guess your optical mouse is Ps/2 type optical. I had the same problem.

I bet your new mouse is of 1000 dpi.

Then simply change the DPI settings of your screen:

right click on desktop
go to settings
Go to advanced settings.
Change the dpi setting

and restart the system.

Try this for different DPI settings and one will definitely work.

Hope this helps.

I moved the computer, which worked fine, and unplugged all cords. When I reassembled the computer and plugged the mouse cord into the port on the tower I realized that the holes for the prongs on the back are very battered. The mouse will not work on the computer now. Any solutions to get it to fit snug?

How do I use mouse instead of touchscreen on Samsung laptop

Do you have a mouse connected by cable or a USB dongle? If so, then your computer's Plug and Plug (PnP) capability to detect, install and activate peripheral device drivers will have recognize the mouse and made it accessible to you. If the mouse in not usable, look in Start, Computer, System Properties, Device Manager, Mice (etc.). If you have a Yellow Triangle, click on the mouse then the Driver Tab to Update the driver. This should solve you problem. You may have to Restart to gain access. If that doesn't work. Unplug the mouse connection, Restart the computer, then plug the mouse connection in again. Watch to see if PnP detects the connection and installs it.

First thing you need to do is to know that the USB ports of your laptop is really working. Insert another usb devices or storage such a flash disk. If the flash disk being inserted is not recognized by the system then the usb port you had inserted is malfunctioning or it is defective. But if the other usb devices like the flash disk is working then your new bought mouse is defective. Try to plug the usb mouse to the other ports available in your laptop.

This sometimes happens because it appears that the USBs develop some type of memory and it fills up the USB register. Uninstalling/deleting the USB ports and rescanning for them may resolve this.
Unplug all USB devices except for you Keyboard/Mouse. If you have a spare or your mouse is already a round PS2 instead of USB, this is better.
First thing I would go to my Device Manager. (XP - Right-click My Computer / Properties / Hardware tab at top / Device Manager *** Vista - just click your start button and start typing 'Device Manager' and it should show in your list.) Scroll to the bottom of the list where you see 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers'. Start right-clicking and deleting each individual one. If you have a USB mouse, when you lose control of it, plug it into a different port. You can also unplug your keyboard at this point. Continue until finished.
If your mouse was USB, you will have to push your power button for a moment to restart your computer and redetect all USB ports. If it is PS2, use your mouse and click on the 'Scan for hardware changes' icon at the top of the Device Manager screen. Hopefully this works.

Ps2 port doesn't recognize Microsoft Optical mouse

You might think about a USB hub for all your USB devices. ps2 port is more or less dedicated for mouse, which is why your mouse pointer is stuck in the middle of the screen. Go ahead and get an externally powered USB Hub to power other USB devices. To answer, ps2 for mouse needs just a mouse, not USB device.

I have a gigabyte wireless mouse, and have charged the batteries and tried to sync the mouse, but nothing is happening

Look in device manager and see if it recognizes the device.. should appear as a human interface device and under the mouses. If not then unplug the mouse from the usb port and plug it back in. If it still doesn't recognize the device then search for new hardware or find a driver on the internet.
