Re: Installation Problems

Two main reasons, first if your operating system is win98 you may need to install the cd driver for that mouse. in case your operating sytem is winxp then the problem is your mouse you need to return for the warranty

How do I setup a wireless mouse on a desktop

To setup a wireless mouse regardless of its type, do the following:

1. Insert the USB transmitter (this could look like a mini plug or a stick) and wait for windows to complete installation.
2. Once this is successful, turn on the mouse by holding down the power button. Or insert the disc that came with the mouse and run the installer. The installer will install the device drivers and setup your mouse's configuration panel which will reside in your system tray.

Make sure that the mouse has batteries and that it is switched on for it to work. It will glow red when it is switched on.

Wireless mouse won't work, have replace battery, rebooted laptop removed and replaced mouse connection etc. Was working fine until yesterday

Is it not working at all or is it moving erratically across the screen? If it doesn't seem to be working at all, turn off your mouse then unplug the receiver's USB cable from the laptop for about 5-10 seconds then plug it in to another USB port. It may detect a new device, just let it do the automatic installation if it asks. You should here a 'tada' or ding sound when it is plugged in. When installation is completed or about 10 seconds after you hear the sound, turn your mouse back on.

If it still doesn't work, try shutting down your laptop completely instead of just rebooting it.

If it still doesn't work after that, make sure you have a spare USB mouse available then uninstall the software for your wireless mouse or mouse/keyboard combo then reinstall it.

Purchased new laptop and wireless mouse, first day worked great, after a week tried to use mouse again.....just not working have replaced battery no luck

I would try unplugging the usb receiver and restarting the computer.
Then plug it back in.
Sadly, with these, along with replacing the battery, that's the only option.

My mouse doesn't work with my mac for some reason. I tried new batteries and i tried putting it on my friend's mac and it worked and i tried switching the USB hub and still it doesnt work. it was working...

Try bypassing the USB hub and plugging the receiver directly into a USB port on the computer. Sometimes devices won't recognize properly if they're going through a hub.

Can you install a cordless mouse to any computer?

Hi most cordless mouse or keyboard use a usb adaptor you plug this into a usb port on your computer then press a button usually on the bottom of the mouse and then this connects it with your computer, if you buy them new you should get a installation cd with it and just run this in your computer and you should then have no problems

so to answer your question yes any wireless mouse or keyboard will work with any computer as long as your usb ports are working,

you should have no problems as long as you follow the installation instructions that come with the mouse, follow those and you will be up and running in no time, just remember you need to change the batteries every 6 to 12 months to ensure it keeps working at its best.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Try restarting your computer with your logitech mouse plugged. If you said you have successfully installed, the system will automatically detect your mouse.

Apple macbook will not recognize GE wireless mouse

I've got one of those. We had problems with it chewing batteries up. You might try another mouse on that computer, and try that mouse on another computer.
