Your mouse probably died.
Here's what I would do in your case:
If you can borrow another mouse, try it in your computer.
Be advised that if it's a PS/2 mouse, you need to install it when the computer is off. If it's a USB mouse, you can hot-swap it (install it while the system is running).
If the new mouse works, then you've solved your problem.

Oh--by the way--it's not a wireless mouse, is it? If so, install new batteries and push the little "connect" button on the bottom.

But how do you go to all those places if your mouse isn't working?


If the keyboard works - you can still operate the computer. The tab key will allow you to access the various windows on the desk top. The Windows Start key will allow you to open programs. The Alt key along with a letter combination will allow you to manipulate files....and so on. You don't really need a mouse to operate a computer.

I have a dell wireless mouse which operates a


The mouse and the keyboard (if it's wireless too) both have batteries. After changing a battery sometimes, you have to press the search button on the receiver and the search button underneath the mouse while holding them near each other so they can find each other again. please let me know if that dosen't help.

Where do hook up wireless. I have dell desk top.


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, wireless mouse makes use of the USB port to connect its base/receiver. Depending on the exact model of the Dell desktop, there would normally be USB ports at the rear of the computer. Some others have 2 USB ports at the front or side.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Mouse V450 shipped with new Dell Desk top does not work reliably


It should be good up to 30 feet, whatever the setup. You might try plugging the send/receiver into a front port to see if that helps.

I usually open Device Manager, open each USB device and set the power to stay on, (not "turn off this device to save power"). That way, sleep mode won't cause you to lose contact with the mouse. Or just disable sleep mode.

Windows keep popping up


I've had this happen to me by accident once and a while. if it's many months then possibly re-installing the touchpad drivers (or updating them) would help.
You can also adjust mouse settings in the control panel, found in my computer on the left side of the window.
Hope this helps a little, It does sound like the buttons are sticky. be sure to rate! :)
