Re: wireless mouse will not work with battery
Check the battery connections to make sure they are making contact and not corroded. Make sure you hit the reset button which is on the bottom of the mouse so it can reestablish contact with the USB stick.

Wireless mouses never made much sense to me since you have to be right at the computer to use them. I've had so many repair visits when the battery is dead just when you need it most to work. Save yourself the trouble and buy wired mouse.
maybe the battery?
follow the steps below to troubleshoot the mouse Wireless mouse does not respond (generic instructions) Try to Resynchronize your device with the receiver(connector) Follow these steps.: Note When you synchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, put the device near the receiver and put other wireless keyboards and mouse at least 6 feet away. 1. Press the button on the receiver, and then verify that the light on the receiver starts to blink. 2. If a dialog box appears on the screen in several seconds, follow the instructions that appear on the screen. Otherwise, go to the next step. 2. Press and release the Connect Channel button on the bottom of the mouse or the keyboard. 3. Check the green light on the receiver. A steady green light means the synchronization was successful. If the problem persists, try steps 1 through 3 again. For the Wireless Notebook mouse: This issue can occur if the micro-switch on the bottom of the mouse is not released. Use a pin or a pen to try to release the button if it is depressed. or Try different port and restart your computer. or Reinsert the batteries or install fresh batteries If you have the possibility check whether the problem is because of your computer or the device, try the mouse or the keyboard on a different computer.
What is the exact model of wireless mouse you have? You may have a laser wireless mouse, which may not emit any visible light. The red light on other wireless mice are either a different optical mouse technology, or a red light for the purpose of being pretty. Not all wireless mice have a red light that you can see. Does the mouse work (regardless of the light)? Have you hit the connect button? Have you connected the wireless receiver to a working USB port?
Look for a small button that protrudes where the receiver is placed at the bottom of mouse.
There are two possibilities for turning on the red light, one is that said button is stuck,if that is the case push it down a couple of times and see if the red light goes on, the other is that the button is broken at it's base.
Also check that battery contacts are clean and hold it firmly.
If you know that the battery is good then try this next.
There is a VERY tiny shark-fin shaped spring-loaded button on the bottom of the mouse that is pressed in, when you insert the receiver, while the mouse is not in use, that turns off the mouse to save the batteries. If you haven't used the mouse in a while, it can get stuck in the in position, so that when you pull out the receiver, it doesn't spring out and turn the mouse on (indicated by the red light on the bottom). If you notice that the light isn't coming on. Just try manually pushing in the little shark-fin thing a couple times to make it spring back out. After a couple times, you should be able to get it unstuck and the red light should come on.
