    My dell wireless mouse suddenly stopped allowing me to drag anything. I noticed it playing solitaire then when I tried to highlight a section to copy and paste. It will let me click on something but then drops it before I am done. I have changed the batteries and disconnected the blue tooth to re-pare it but nothing is working.

    The batteries are two weeks old, the switch on the bottom is "on". I looked in device manager and it told me there was a problem with the driver. I did a system restore. Opened device manager again, says it actually recognizes the mouse with no driver problem, but the pointer on the screen still does not move. I've pressed the blue button on the bottom. I've pressed and held the blue button. IT STILL DOES NOT WORK.

Ya..there is a small button on back side of the receiver..plug the receiver to the USB port and press the button for few secs and red light will start blinking..then a similar button is there for the mouse below it and it will work fine.

Check the manual to do the pairing of the receiver and mouse again. That'll probably fix it

Mouse only works for a few seconds and then stops.

have you changed the batteries recently? Wireless mice seem to eat batteries faster. I have a Dell wireless mouse. It will work fine for months and then nothing. That's when I know to change out the batteries. If your batteries are fresh, make sure they are seated in their slots securely.

GE Wireless mouse & keyboard

are both keyboard and mouse communicating with a single wireless devices, or each has it's own? sometime you need to sync the signal to the wireless device. but do this first... ask your sister if the mouse was working before she gave it to you, there is a possibility that the mouse is broken/no working. if it's an optical mouse, the mouse that has lights sensor, make sure it lights up...
