One day while operating my computer it suddenly went off but the power supply was O.K.
After that I tried to switch it on but It never started.
Later I unplugged all the ports except the power cable. When I switchedon, it started. Then I started connecting all the ports. But as soon asI plugged in the mouse port again my PC went off. So I started my PCwithout mouse. After windows appears, when I connected my mouse, againit went out and never started. This is a very serious problem ofoperating without mouse.
Please help me out with these. My PC is "PCS ORION", not a very good brand.
Earlier the mouse sometimes stops working while playing games. But the CPU never went off.

Hi sambi,

If you are currently, working on PS2 mouse port which is the error occurred as stated in your problem. Try to used other PS2 mouse which working on the other pc maybe there was a short circuit on your old mouse. If the problem persist, You can use the alternative way by using USB port to plug your optical mouse.

Try to look for ps2 to usb port converter in the computer stores maybe you can still used your old mouse.

Hope this will be helpful to you.

Best Regards,

Belkin wireless mouse won't connect on power up of PC

A Belkin Mini Wireless Optical Mouse frees you from the restriction imposed by the limit of the wire that your mouse uses to connect to your computer. The Belkin model works up to three feet away from the receiver and operates on a 27 MHz frequency. It's smaller than a regular mouse, making it easy to add it to a laptop case or desk drawer without losing much space in the process. Before you can use the Belkin Mini Wireless Optical mouse, you must install it. The receiver and the mouse should sync automatically; if they don't, you must perform the sync manually.

1 Press the bottom release tab on the top cover of the mouse. Insert the batteries included in the package and replace the cover.
2 Turn on your computer. Plug the Belkin USB receiver into a USB port on your computer. The drivers will install automatically.
3 Press the sync button on top of the USB receiver and then press the sync button on the bottom of the mouse to connect the two devices.
  • close Before you can install the Belkin mouse, remove drivers for other wireless mouse types on your computer.

Can not connect my wireless optical mouse

Most new wireless mouses or mice will connect automatically. some earlier models connect differently depending on the make and model. Usually by holding down the conect buttom on the bottom of the mouse at the same time holding down the connect buttom on the wireless device that plugs into the PC. This usually works, if not you will need to download the operator instructions or find the one that came with the wireless mouse.

Good Luck

Microsoft wireless notebook optical mouse quit working

You may have a bad mouse.

Try the mouse on another computer. Since it's a microsoft product it should install automatically just fine. It'll either work or it won't If it doesn't call Microsoft. The mouse has a warranty and MS will replace it. I was in a similar situation with a MS mouse and they sent me a new device. I did not have to send the bad device in and I got the replacement in a couple of days.

My wireless mouse (new batteries) and keyboard all of a sudden do not work. Checked all of the connections. Devices are about 5 years old.

It seems as though your driver has become corrupted. Use your "System Restore" to go back a few days to when it was operating correctly.Thanks, Dana
