Wireless optical mouse #97990 Rev 5 does not work

Was working on computer- the curser didnot move. I thought -ok time for new batteries. I have only had this mouse for approx. 6 months. I chanded batteries but the mouse would not work. I pushed the "link" button" on mouse & receiver. Still nothing. Can it be this mouse only worked for 6 months -now I need to purchase a new one?

Maybe the "link" button was pushed to many times? on-off-on off not sure where it ended up at . again THANK YOU!! Is does run better on paper than a mouse pad, different huh.

Remove the batteries. Remove the receiver from the PC. Reinsert and try to link them again.

I have #97990. The batteries are done within a half of a day, even when I switch it off


Replace the rechargeable batteries. Even rechargeable batteries only can be recharged so many times and then they will not hold a good charge.

GE Wireless "Malfunction" "Unknown Device"


Does the mouse and/or keyboard have a "connect" button on the bottom of either? Try restarting your PC, then, if you have installed new batteries, and the mouse/keyboard is still not connected, try the "Connect" button if any.

Mouse doesnt entirely work, only clicks.


stupid question but have you tried replacing the batteries? it does honestly sound like its got power issues which are usually just that. give that a shot with some fresh batteries and re-synch the units (by pressing the button on the reciever then on the mouse).

Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it to Reset/Connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly.
If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud

Mouse thinks its alive (GE wireless optical 97990 rev.4)


Could be signal interference or overloaded usb port. Move receiver around to get a more direct signal, and notice any other devices in use like phones. Use alone without other usb devices plugged in and/or buy usb hub with power adapter. DO NOT buy passive usb hub with no additional power.

First, change your batteries. Next, make sure that after you push both link buttons (try to press them as close to simultaneously as you can) that you click the mouse button. Otherwise it won't actually link.
