You have to first turn off the device, elsewhere you wouldn't be able to remove the battery compartment.
After that, pull it hard and it will get off.

My Logitech LX3 optical mouse has stopped working completely. If there is a battery in it where the heck is it? I don't see anywhere on the mouse where a battery could fit in it. Please help! Francine

The LX3 is a wired USB mouse so it doesn't have a battery. So the next issue: is the mouse plugged in directly to the computer or into a USB hub? Try changing the port that you have the mouse connected. Check that the USB ports are active (not disabled for power savings or security) For Windows, the first is under the Advanced settings for the Screen Saver. The second is in the device manager. Try the mouse on another computer if possible. Try a different mouse on the computer. Check if other USB ports work with known working devices. For a Windows machine, you might try uninstalling the USB device and then reinstalling the drivers after a reboot. For laptops, try resetting the unit. On my HP laptop, I lost all USB devices at once for a part of the day. In that case, unplugging the AC charger and removing the battery was required to recover the USB ports.

If you have an older OS, make sure the drivers are installed. (This mouse is not compatible with Windows 95.) If you use a USB to PS/2 adapter, try a USB port and reboot the computer.

Wired mice frequently get damaged cables so I'd recommend replacing it. There was a 5 year warranty on the mouse when purchased new.

I hope this helps.

How do i connect my wireless optical mouse model MWO03 to my eee laptop windows 7?

Follow these steps :
Check to see if your laptop supports wireless technology (Bluetooth, 802.11 or other). If it doesn't, you will need a wireless receiver. If it does, verify that your laptop is compatible with your wireless mouse, which could use either Bluetooth technology or a radio signal.
Unpack your mouse and open its battery compartment. The wireless mouse won't receive any power from the laptop, making batteries necessary.
Add new batteries to the compartment. Make sure that the + battery end is inserted into the + niche in the compartment.
Place the mouse where it is easy to use and least stressful on your fingers.
Place your wireless receiver appropriately if your laptop doesn't support wireless technology. The receiver should be kept at least 8 inches away from the laptop or any other object that would cause any interference.
Place the wireless receiver anywhere from 8 inches to 6 feet from the mouse.
Insert the driver CD into your laptop and follow the instructions to install the software for running the mouse.
Connect your receiver to the laptop by plugging in the mouse's USB connector to the USB port of the laptop. If you do not have a free USB port, simply use an external USB hub for more ports.

Toshiba Satellite A505 usb ports fell off inside. how are they held on? how to fix?

This info is about replacing a Harddrive in a Satellite A505, but I wanted to show you what is entailed in order to access the USB ports in order to repair, or replace them.

Page 2, Step 18. (You can enlarge the photos by clicking on them)

ALL power removed from the laptop! AC adapter (Charger), and Battery. Buy and wear an ESD wrist strap, connect the alligator clip to a good ground source. Average cost is around $3 to $8.

Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws, mark each compartment for where the screws came out of. DO NOT mix them up.

Cannot get mouse to work

If the underside of the mouse has an on/off switch, make sure to set the switch to the "On" position.
Restart the computer. This can resolve the problem, at least temporarily, so that other troubleshooting steps can be applied.
Move the mouse or keyboard closer to the receiver
The receiver is the hardware that receives the wireless signals from the keyboard and mouse and communicates the data to the computer. Most receivers connect to a USB port, either directly or by a cable, but a few types of receivers connect to the PS/2 ports.
. Make sure that the keyboard and the mouse are within 100 centimeters (39 inches) of the receiver. If the receiver is attached to a cord, position it so that it is on the same level surface, close to the mouse and keyboard.

4. Replace the batteries with a fresh set of alkaline batteries and make sure they are correctly installed. If the mouse or keyboard is not working, then replace the batteries, even if the mouse/keyboard software indicate the batteries still have a charge.
Remove the battery cover to access the batteries. For keyboards, the battery access cover is found on the underside of the keyboard. When replacing the batteries look for the positive symbol (a plus sign +) imprinted near the battery compartment or battery cover. Make sure the positive end of the battery is oriented to the positive side of the compartment.

If you have a USB receiver, unplug the USB receiver, wait 10 seconds, and then insert it into another USB port - preferably into a USB port that is closer to the mouse and keyboard. For example, if the USB receiver was plugged into a USB port on the back of the computer, unplug it and plug it into a front USB port.
Resync the wireless keyboard and mouse connections.

Resync the keyboard and mouse connections for receivers with a connect button .
Resynchronizing the keyboard and/or mouse causes the devices to reconnect to the receiver using new identification numbers.
NOTE: The following connection sequence must be completed within 60 seconds. If the sequence is not done in 60 seconds, start over.

Battery wont recharge-

Below are some things to check for when charging your Sansa player:
USB Cable Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable that came with your player. Make sure the computer isn't entering hibernation or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be ON in order to charge your player. USB Port 2.0 Make sure the player is connected to a USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems). USB Port location Try plugging into different USB ports (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); occasionally the front USB ports have limited power to charge up the device. Battery Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery. Latest firmware Depending on what Sansa player you have, make sure it's up to date with the latest firmware. AC charger (optional) AC chargers (sold separately) have a 500-1000 milliamp max output, which provides much better charging ability than a USB port. These accessories are available on our online store.
To Remove the Battery... 1. Remove the back on the e200 by removing the 4 screws. 2. Lift off the back by using a finger nail or a small flat head screw driver. It will not take a lot of force to remove. NOTE: When replacing the e200 battery be sure that the contacts on the battery line up with the contacts on the player. 3. The battery has three gold contacts on one end of the battery, which is near the words SanDisk Sansa. Be sure these contacts match up with the three gold contacts on the back of the player. 4. Lightly push the lined up battery up against the contacts of the player until the bottom end of the battery can be pushed into place. 5. Replace the lid to the back of the player and then plug the player into the computer using the Sansa cable. 6. Once the player has connected to the computer and is ready to be used or says "Connected", unplug the device.
NOTE: If the device goes directly to a black screen after unplugging it, then the battery has been replaced incorrectly. Take the back off the player once again and flip the battery around and the e200 device should work properly.
