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

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.

I received a mickey mouse glove wireless mouse for the holidays. When I plugged the piece into the computer the mouse wouldn't work. Is there anything that I need to do to get started that I am not doing...

If there was a cd with the mouse, make sure you have inserted it and followed the installation steps.

The operating system compatibility for the product is Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/VISTA, Mac OS10.3 If you use a different one, it might be the reason why the mouse is not working.
If the red optical light is lit under the mouse and the USB transmitter is properly inserted, try pushing the button on the transmitter. If no change, try clicking the mouse buttons.
You can also try a different USB port.
If there is no red light, the batteries inside the mouse are either not inserted properly or dead.

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

How to put cordless mouse on pc

A cordless mouse is usually attached to the computer with a USB wireless device that usually comes with the mouse. All you have to do is plug the USB device into an available USB port on the back or front of your computer and you should be ready to go. The device will install itself in most instances. Then you need to make sure that you put batteries into the mouse itself in order for it to work. Sometimes a wireless mouse will come with an installation cd that will assist you in the installation process.
