Spyder mouse won't work

My Spyder was working great, I plugged a USB extender into the USB port, the USB fan would work, but the mouse would not. So I plugged the mouse back in.

I get full lights on the piece that plugs into the USB, but the mouse won't work at all.

I've put in new batteries, just in case
I've rebooted to see if the computer would pick up new hardware.
I've pressed the connect button.

Zip nothing.........what can I do.

I had a similar problem. I corrected by performing a manual connect as listed in the manual that came with the mouse.
Manual reconnect:
1. Plug in the receiver.
2. Turn on the mouse.
3. Press the button on the receiver.
4. Press the connect button on the mouse once within five seconds of pressing the button on the receiver.

This worked for me, and the mouse has worked fine since.

If this doesn't work. The manual suggested taking the batteries out of the mouse for 20 seconds and unplugging the receiver, then repeat the steps above.
If that doesn't work. reboot the computer and repeat the steps above.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like you have tried the normal stuff. The only thing I can think of is to boot without the usb adapter in. Then plug it into a different USB port. As well perhaps try it without anything else plugged in. Sometimes windows is not that good at remebering what is called legacy usb. Those are just things left plugged in when you restart the next time. So you have to try a different port. On a laptop if say you have this normally on the side try a port on the back. Same with a pc. That should get it recognized not only on a different usb port but should use a different usb controller. It will then wake up and say found new hard ware and resintall the drivers if any or ask for them.

Unfortunetly if you ever noticed that the usb thingy (yes thingy is a proper technical term) was hot that can indicate it was failing. So you may need to replace the mouse and usb adapter.

Team promark keyboard won't work


If it has a USB plug, try attaching it through a different port hub, i.e. not the usb port right next to the one that didn't work. If that doesn't work, test the usb port with something else first. If the USB port is not the problem, you may need to download a driver for the keyboard.

The mouse was working great. I pushed the connect button on the cradle and it quit working and now it won't start when I push the button.


Take the battery(ies) out of the mouse. Move the controller to another USB port. Put the battery(ies) back in the mouse. It should connect. If not, Logitech has override procedures listed on their site. I can't tell you which one to use. You didn't list the mouse model.

Try this fix, turn off your computer properly then unplug the computer from the wall socket, then press the power button and hold for about 3-5 seconds. Then plug your computer back in, restart the computer then wait for the boot to settle into Windows.
After doing those things plug in a USB device into the same port as you have been doing. It should work now, if it does not plug it into another port if it does not go to all of the ports and try them all if none of them work then you cable may have come loose on your board or it is a bad USB HUB on your computer it is obvious it is not the unit if it worked on another computer.
You will have to replace it or if it works on one of them then change out the bad one. Replace it! Or go and get a 4 port USB extension using just one of the USB ports. So that you will have more ports without the fix. Replace any worn parts or devices that do not work anymore. John

Unfortunately, this switch has a dedicated port for keyboard that listens for the keyboard keystroke. You MUST plug the keyboard into the dedicated keyboard port on the KVM switch for the hotkeys to work. I recommend putting the mouse that comes with your keyboard to the side, and using another mouse, plugged into the dedicated mouse USB port on the switch. Not the prettiest solution, but some of those mouse/keyboard combos have some funky hardware!

Microsoft wireless mouse 3000; put in new battery, still nothing


nikcorra2488,

try this: plug in the USB key & check for the green light. Then go to start, control panel, & double click mouse (with whatever mouse works). Check the hardware tab and see it the computer is recognizing that the mouse is there. If it is there, it should be working fine. If not, then perhaps you need to reinstall the USB port drivers. Sometimes this will happen when you've upgraded from 1.0 to 2.0 USB ports.

Hope this helps.

Your mouse might have had an internal receptor problem, meaing it can not read the signal from the adapter. This sometimes happens with wireless products. Contact Toshiba and they should give you a new one free of charge since it seems it was a faulty product. Rate me if this helps!

Bud's got it. Remember when pressing the button on the mouse and usb receiver that the mouse has to be brought close to the receiver for them to sync.
