My mouse cannot select text in word 2007 documents. i uninstalled the program and reinstalled but the problem persists. when i tap the mouse or drag or try to make a right button menu selection i get no...

First, try to start it in safe mode. To do that, go to start, run, and type in WinWord.exe /safe. From there you have the option to go to the Office button (the one with the office logo in the top left corner) and go to Word Options. Then go to Resources, and click on the Diagnose button. If that doesn't help, you can also go to start, settings, control panel, add/remove programs, and choose to repair word specifically. If that doesn't work, do a FULL uninstall. After it uninstalls, don't reboot yet. Go to My computer, C drive, Program Files, and COMPLETELY DELETE the Microsoft Office folder. Then empty the recycle bin. That usually gets all the stubborn pieces out. In extreme cases, you may need to go to start, run, type in regedit, and do a search for all "office" entries in the registry and delete, them, but this is often taken care of with the reboot and highly advised against to play in the registry unless you know what you're doing. After you completely turn your computer off and turn it back on, reinstall the program and after that HOPEFULLY it works!!

Stoped functioning

Normal 0 Turn the Keyboard over and locate the small reset/connect button on the back of the keyboard and press it. Then try to see if it is working. If not try pressing the button on the receiver and then on the keyboard.
If your having trouble with the mouse also,
turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps. Bud
