Question about Toshiba Wireless Mouse PA3205U-1ETC

1 Answer

Toshiba Wireless Mouse

It worked great for one month, then died. Replacing battery did not help. Diagnostics indicate that mouse is plugged in to USB port and working properly, but it isn't. USB port still functions for other devices. No mouse functions working at all. Touchpad still works.

Re: Toshiba Wireless Mouse

Your mouse might have had an internal receptor problem, meaing it can not read the signal from the adapter. This sometimes happens with wireless products. Contact Toshiba and they should give you a new one free of charge since it seems it was a faulty product. Rate me if this helps!

Help me please ^^ i just bought this mouse and when i plug i, it doesn't install and my PC is saying that it doesn't recognize it

Try replacing the batteries and connecting the mouse again. If you just now bought it and it doesn't work, ask for your money back. There are a lot of negative reviews for this mouse.

The cursor is not moving buttons are working

Since its a wireless mouse, it will use pencil battery to communicate with the wireless dongle which is connected to the system.
Try replacing the battery. If not try to plug the wireless dongle on the other USB port.

I have a wireless HP Keyboard/mouse. (SPS # 481019-001. The receiver (usb) # is 481021-001. My problem is that the keyboard works great and the mouse does not work at all. I have no idea why. I put new...

From the manufacturer's web-site:

the specifications state:

•Energy efficient : Conserve energy with PC sleep button. Monitor battery level with convenient on screen battery level indicator. Long battery life (keyboard - 12 months typical, mouse - 4 months typical).

So, the mouse _DOES_ need a new battery. Take it to a computer-store, to get them to sell you a new battery, after showing you how to remove the old battery.

Cant click on anything..

If the red sensor that glows (on the bottom) is not on or flashing, you need new batteries. In that case, pry open the battery cover and replace. If it is on and it's not working. Try one of these things.
  1. Click the reset button on both, the mouse and the usb adapter.
  2. Making sure the device is installed properly, if not you might need a new mouse.
Hope this helped. Message me if it does or doesn't and I'll try to help more. (I have a Targus wireless mouse for my Toshiba laptop)
Good luck.

Microsoft wireless mouse 3000; put in new battery, still nothing


try this: plug in the USB key & check for the green light. Then go to start, control panel, & double click mouse (with whatever mouse works). Check the hardware tab and see it the computer is recognizing that the mouse is there. If it is there, it should be working fine. If not, then perhaps you need to reinstall the USB port drivers. Sometimes this will happen when you've upgraded from 1.0 to 2.0 USB ports.

Hope this helps.

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.
