Question about Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse VSBX300008
The receiver (part 1024) for this mouse has stopped functioning - is it possible to purchase a new one separately from the mouse?
My green light on the receiver is ON. The mouse battery is new. The red LASER switches with movement. I read all of the posts, than I pulled apart the receiver and the wires were OK. There is a micro-switch in the receiver, so I pushed it when plugged in to the computer. The green light flashes, then I pushed the button on the bottom of the mouse, it connects. To make short of this, do not open the receiver case, just use a pen and push the green "connect" light (must be in USB port), it will activate reset switch and blink. Next, push "connect" on the bottom of mouse.

I also had this problem, then one time I noticed the little "off" switch, that activates when the USB transmitter is replaced.
By "jiggling" this little switch, it would then connect. Also, try reconnecting by using a pencil point to press the tiny "connect" button just below the "off" switch.

Okay this can be resolved
its very simple. The mouse itself has a double A battery look from behind the mouse there is a silver button with a read star and a red symbol ,press the button it will pop the cover off. The batter is enclosed and replace the battery , Then plug in the receiver and connect and hit connect on the mose it will start working I hope this helps

The mouse is fine, the receiver just doesn't seem to be getting any power. The green light won't go on and my computer doesn't recognize the device.

Quick fix for the still mouse problem.
This proberly won't work for everyone.
If you have tried everything else and your about to throw the mouse in the bin then try this
1. Plug the receiver into your usb
2. Start moving the mouse around
3. Rotate the reciever round a couple of times in either direction whilst moving the mouse.
4. In my case the mouse started working after a couple of trys
5. Superglue the receiver in the working position.
Things to bear in mind after carrying out this procedure.
1. You will not be able to rotate the receiver after glueing. This may cover any sockets next to the USB port.
2. If possible try to position the receiver in a flat position so that it will fit back into the mouse when not in use
i know this isn't the best solution but it is a quick fix.

If the wireless receiver is plugged in, the light is not on, the computer makes an unusual sound (dun dun dun!) when you plug in the receiver, if the red light under the mouse is working.
Open the device manager, for windows 7 press the start button and type "Device Manager"
Find the mouse on the list, it should have a yellow exclamation point next to it.
Right click the device
Click "Update Driver"
Click "Brows My Computer"
Click "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
Un-check the box that says "Show compatible hardware"
On the left hand side, choose "Microsoft"
On the right hand side, choose "Microsoft USB Wireless Mouse (Mouse and Keyboard Center)"
Once the drivers have installed successfully, you will need to reboot your computer.
Once the computer has rebooted, if the mouse is still not responding, you might need to reconnect the receiver with the mouse by pressing the button on the receiver, then the button on the bottom of the mouse that says "connect"
This same process should work for most other windows operating system, you just need to figure out how to find the device manager. Usually in the control panel.

My problem is that the USB part is working (I think). The green light is on. When I press the connect button, the green light blinks. My mouse has a new battery, but the red light isn't on. I've tried pressing connect on the mouse, pressing connect on the mouse and connect on the USB so the green light blinks, pressing connect on the USB and then the mouse. None of these things work. The red light still doesn't work. Any ideas?

If Your mouse red lazer is ON... And your USB part of you mouse light is GREEN and NOT blinking and you can see your curser but cant move or click... READ THIS!!!
New Batteries... Im not even kidding. Press the bottun that has a star on it thats not on the bottom but near the bottom, and top should pop off. If it your lid on the top of you mouse doesent pop off, keep the star button pushed in and use a knife to pop it off. I had to use a knife because i dont have any finger nails. That was the problem with mine

The problem with the mouse is that the dumb@ss engineers did not account for the rotation of the antenna part of the usb plug in portion. at some point, continued rotations in one direction will sever all the wires between the two moving parts. fix is either replace broken usb antenna part, or do what I did which was tear (literally, as it's fused plastic) apart the spinning antenna housing, pulling the mini PCB and resoldering and insulating all the wires back together, then more or less gluing the entire assembly back together as non-moving part.
