Re: wireless mouse not working

1. have you reset the connection between it and the transmitter? There will be a button to press [at the same time] on both.
2. Is the transmitter close enough to the mouse or is there a barrier between it and mouse?
3. have you tried start>settings>control panel>mouse.pointer options? maybe it is too fast/slow etc Have a play with those options.
4. If it is not these maybe you have a virus????
5. Or it is a dud?

You probably have to "connect" the mouse to the wireless connector.

Usually under there is a "Connet" button on the button side of the mouse. Press and hold this button for three seconds.
This should sync the mouse with the wireless connector.

I have the same mouse. What you have to do is first power off the mouse, then push on the green-lit button on the transmitter that you plug into your USB. (It doesn't feel too much like a button but you will see that it starts flashing.) Hold it down for about 15 seconds. Then power on your mouse and you will see that it should start working. I was frustrated too but got mine working.

How to install 2.4Ghz wireless mouse with USB receiver?

Insert the batteries into the mouse. Turn the mouse over, find the battery cover, and slide it off. Insert the appropriate batteries-usually two AAs.
  • The wireless receiver that plugs into the computer uses USB power, so it needs no batteries.
Connect the receiver to the computer. If your computer has a USB port (as most do), plug your receiver into an available port. There will also be a green adapter supplied, in the event that your system requires the use of the mouse port. Caution-don't try and force the mouse adapter into the keyboard port!
  • The mouse receiver has a USB plug (left), but can also plug into the mouse plug through the adapter it came with (right). If your receiver plugs into the USB port it should look like the left. If it plugs into the mouse plug it should look like the one on the right, only connected to the receiver.
Connect the mouse to the receiver. Place the mouse in close proximity to the receiver, and note the following:
  • The receiver should have a visible button that is easily pushable by the average human finger.
  • The mouse will usually have a very small reset button in a hole on the bottom that can be pushed by something like a pencil or paper clip.
  • Push both buttons at the same time with the receiver and the mouse relatively close to each other for about 5 seconds or more.
Find a permanent position the receiver. Place the receiver where it won't be far away from the mouse. Depending on where you are, you can place it on the monitor, on the tower, on the back of your laptop (if you are installing the mouse to your laptop) or on the desk.
  • The furthest a wireless mouse can get away from the receiver and still function is about 9 feet (2.7 meters), so keep that in mind.
Test your new mouse.
  • If you plugged into the mouse port, restart your computer.
  • If you plugged it into the USB port you should be able to use it immediately.
  • When the cursor moves when you move the mouse, you have connected the mouse properly. If the cursor doesn't move, try repositioning the receiver. If it still doesn't work, you may need to restart your computer (if you haven't already) or reconnect everything.
Adjust your mouse settings. Use the control panel that came with your wireless mouse, or download the necessary software from the manufacturer's website. Adjust the settings so that the mouse performs as you require.

How to connect to laptop

Using a wireless mouse with a laptop is a convenient way to avoid using the laptop's built in mouse.

Moreover, even if you use an external mouse, carrying a wireless mouse is easier than the wired version.
Here is how to use a wireless mouse with a laptop.

Ensure that your laptop is compatible with a wireless mouse.
Most wireless mice use Bluetooth technology.
Any Bluetooth enabled laptop can connect to a Bluetooth wireless mouse.
Unpack your mouse and insert batteries to the battery chamber.
While doing so, make sure that the positive side of the battery is inserted into the positive niche in the compartment.

Place the mouse in a way that makes it easy for you to use and less stressful for your fingers.
Use a wireless receiver if your laptop does not have an built in wireless receiver (either Bluetooth or 802.11b).
It should be kept at least eight inches away from the laptop or any other object that would cause any interference.

Insert the drivers, if any, for the mouse to function properly.
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 any free USB ports, simply use an external USB hub for more ports.

I have a Dynex Wireless Optical Mouse (Model No. DX=PWLMSE) and it works when I plug it into my netbook. When I try to use it with my laptop (Gateway), the cursor does not move. I have tried to use the...

On some computers, the mouse will work as soon as it is plugged in, while on others you'll need to manually set the connection. To do this, plug the USB receiver into the computer, then press the Connect button on the receiver. Once the lights start flashing, press the Connect button on the bottom of the mouse. (Make sure the mouse is turned on first.) It should now make the connection.

Hope that helps!

Wireless mouse does not work after changing always has in the past The Dell computer and mouse is probably 8 years old but has always worked.

Try moving the mouse receivers usb plug in to another port. Unplug any new devices and restart computer. Then replug in any new usb devices.
If still not working.......
Look at Office Depot and other office stores for a replacement wireless mouse. I have seen them as low a $9.99 on up. You might even want to upgrade and get a wireless mouse and keyboard set.
