I've had the same problem with a Microsoft wireless mouse. Ended up throwing it away and getting a new one. Chances are while in storage or being carried around, something has gone wrong. Also, if you kept the batteries in it while it was not in use, that can damage the circuitry (sometimes).

As an after thought, when you started the computer, did you see a message saying it was installing a new USB device or a new pointing device or a new user interface device? If not, then the computer is not finding the antenna and without the computer recognition you'll get no response from the mouse.

The light is supposed to go dim after few seconds. it's not lit all the time. So it works propperly.

2 of my arc mouses stopped working too after 6-12 months and i got new ones but now after 4 months with the new ones, they failed too.

The problem is within connection between USB-device and mouse. the USB device gets overheated and destroys it self in extensive use.

Get it back to store and swap it to new one.

Microsoft wireless notebook optical mouse 1023 - not working!


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.

Mouse problem MSK-1023


Look at the bottom of the 1023 Microsoft Wireless mouse with the USB part removed.

Toward the bottom of the cavity find a little black switch whose purpose is to turn off the mouse when you reinsert the USB transmitter back into the bottom of the mouse.

Mine had a bit of crud in it which prevented the switch from popping out and turning on the mouse when I removed the USB portion.

Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse Model 1023


Had the same problem. There are 2 reset/ connect buttons: 1 on the mouse, and 1 on the usb device. Press the button on the usb device, and it should start right up. Good luck.

try using an eraser on the contacts if you can reach them. Sounds like dirt/corrosion build-up.

Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse Not Connecting


After reading on Microsoft about replacing the batteries, down loading drivers and "press the button on the receiver and the connect button the receiver" - I got frustrated and almost gave it flight. Then my wife stepped in and realized that there was a green reset button on the USB connector as well. (who knew?) SO.... you press the green light (which is a button) and release it.... should blink. Then go to THE MOUSE portion and press the connect button for 5 seconds or so.... and wala...... One mouse that plays again! This ones gonna cost me! :) I hope this one works for ya!
