When the receiver is unplugged from pc or mouse batteries are changed, the receiver and the mouse may need to be "re-linked". Remember that this is a RF, not an IR, link and uses hundreds of codes to connect. When it looses its power, it can loose its code memory.

Use this link to see my re-linking info:

Altho wireless mice and keyboards seem like a good thing, after using many types, I have given up on the dam things. They are more of a problem than a solution, if only due to the battery situation.

GE Wireless "Malfunction" "Unknown Device"


Does the mouse and/or keyboard have a "connect" button on the bottom of either? Try restarting your PC, then, if you have installed new batteries, and the mouse/keyboard is still not connected, try the "Connect" button if any.

I have had this GE 97990 optical mouse for awhile now and it just stopped working. I changed batteries but nothing. Not sure exactly how to re-sync. What do I do, and what do I do if the re-sync doesn't...


You can get it working again. There is a button right here which is the connect button and the reset button. Usually if you press these two at the same time you can get it to working again

A couple of weeks ago we heard a pop on the computer and then our Dell mouse doesn't work at all. it started to at first then stops. the led light goes off and it stops. we tried plugging in other usb...


A 'pop' is usually the sound or arcing (a small lightning bolt) meaning its a wonder you didn't lose more than the mouse; With the hardwire mouse circuit damaged you will have to buy and install a wireless mouse.

Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it to Reset/Connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly.
If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud

You need to plug in the USB reciever load windows till desktop appears, hold down the reciever button until it flashs then quickly turn over mouse and press connect button in. and you should see the reciever flicker, and it should start working. if it dont try swapping the batterys as they dont last long...and repeating the same process Hope this helps John

First, change your batteries. Next, make sure that after you push both link buttons (try to press them as close to simultaneously as you can) that you click the mouse button. Otherwise it won't actually link.
