Batteries ran down in the optical mouse. I put in new batteries and now I can't get the mouse to work. it's frozen


Remove the battery off and keep aside from within the mouse. Now disconnect the USB - optical detector to the PC. Shut down the PC . Replace battery once again and power the PC, then connect the USB to see if the mouse is detected.
If not remove off installed software of the optical device and reinsert once again so that it gets detected.

Mouse switch off


On most mice, you cannot shut the power off to them without removing the batteries and they will run down rather quickly. There is really nothing you can do unless you buy a mouse with a shutoff switch like my Logitech or use rechargeable batteries or just shut the computer down. Sorry.

Take a q-tip and wipe the optical lens being careful not to apply pressure against the lens. This may or not help. Worth a try. Bud

Bought an optical mouse today when i turn off the computer it still stays lite. how do i fix this.item #81250NS


The model of mouse (SAKAR 81250NS) you have has fancy external lighting, but should get its power from the computer's PS2 port , so unless the mouse has its own internal battery for keeping itself lit up, your computer is not actually turning off, but perhaps just going into power save mode. I am not that familiar with that mouse brand, but to check if it has its own internal battery, shut down the computer all the way and then unplug the computers power cord. If the mouse still is lit up, then your computer is not the problem.

Network connection


It probably stops working due to the heat. The solder connection to the motherboard may not be up to par. To get round it I would purchase a PCI network card and use that instead. If the mouse bothers you, you can always unplug it, but it is something that you dont need to worry about.
