    Bought this and thought hey, it will work just fine. If GE can't make a mouse that works, how could they possibly make anything else that does? Tried in in all my ports and the red light flickers and then nothing. So frustrating.

Hi, I had the same problem. The USB device has what appears to be a circle with dots connected to it facing the port. The dots are actually the word "Connect" in infintessimally small letters. Plug it in, then use your thumb to press down on the circle while using another finger to press up on the device's underside - in effect, squeeze it between your fingers where the circle is. You'll see a red light blink. At that point you can push the "connect" button on your mouse and it will work.

Mouse doesnt work

Windows has trouble recognizing some devices. It gets it and then checks later and doesn't get it and this repeats over and over. Unplug and replug and it works, and then it starts all over again.

I have had to simply abandon using certain mice and keyboards.

I have a GE wireless optical mouse that has decided no to work

I had the same problem till I discovered there are two buttons (not just one) you have to push to re-link the mouse and the USB receiver. Plug the little receiver in, push the tiny "connect" circle on the receiver (which is actually a button I guess), then wait for the red light to start blinking. Then press the little link button on the bottom of the mouse.

My GE mouse doesn't work anymore

First thing to do is check the device manager. If it shows up there, make sure that there are no icons saying there is a problem.

98763 stop working

Did you try putting in new batteries.

Normal 0 If the mouse doesn't have a little door to open on the bottom, then try this.
Just behind the Left and Right keys where your hand rests, apply firm pressure down on the cover and slide to the rear. Some mouse manufactures have used this type of access to replace the batteries.

Normal 0 If it’s a wireless GE mouse turn it on by pushing the button on the bottom and hold till the red light comes on. Assuming the computer is running, press the Blue light on the Receiver and press the button on the bottom of the mouse and it should start tracking on the monitor.
Hope this helps. Bud
