I just bought an Polaroid optical wireless mouse for my Acer Chromebook. I can't get it to connect. I have tried everything and nothing works. Do I need to install a driver?

SOURCE: microsoft wireless notebook optical mouse 3000 Doesnt seem to work?

Okay, a coworker had this problem and it was a fairly easy fix, first, plug the USB reciever into a direct USB port, then pess the connect button on the underside of the mouse, when the red light starts blinking let go and then press it and hold, and at the SAME TIME press and hold the connect button on the receiver until both the receiver light and the mouse light turn on steadily, and voila!

SOURCE: 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.

How do i use the staples wireless optical mouse with my chromebook?


Wireless mouse and keyboard are supposed to work on chromebook. It is supposed to work just by inserting USB dongel in port. If won't work, test it on a Windows or Mac computer. Wireless mouse and keyboard are supposed to work on chromebook, see customers report at amazon

Can you use a mouse with the chrome book?


Which specific Chromebook do you have? The Samsung Chromebook has USB ports on the back of the unit (below the hinge for the screen). The Acer C720 Chromebook has one USB port on each side. Most basic mice should work. (Some gaming mice and mice with unifying adapters might have issues.) Some report needing to disconnect and reconnect the mouse after turning on the Chromebook to get it to work. Other models can connect to a bluetooth mouse, like this: http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Cordless-Optical-Bluetooth-Charcoal/dp/B000BDH2Y8 . Enable Bluetooth and then synch the mouse using the PIN provided in the documentation.

Please note: adding these external devices may reduce the length of time that you can use the Chromebook before recharging the battery.

I hope this helps.

Replaced Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2000 doesn't work


I would have suggested opening up your old mouse and cleaning the right click button first.

Generally, wireless devices have a connect button that finds the frequencies of the devices. On the receiver press this button, then press the button on the bottom of your new mouse. the receivers lights will stop flashing once connected.

Logitech Mouse V320 Corless Optical Mouse not working


The warrenty period is usually a year. Is there a connection button on the receiver as well? Normally you need to press the connect button on the mouse, and then on the receiver shortly there after. If you want to replace it, you might have an easier time just getting a new mouse.

Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Mouse Receiver from the USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When the program asks you to connect the Mouse Receiver to the USB port, do so and it should work.
