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.

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.

My HP wireless mouse does not work. I've tried all


Did it used to work and stopped? I'm ruling out the obvious, replacing the batteries. I would check the Device Manager to see if when you insert the mouse's receiver USB plug, that the device is recognized, and also the driver is properly working. I'm guessing you tried that already... Last resort I would open the mouse and look for any problems with the hardware, and also see if the USB plug is disconnected on the inside. It's also possible for a USB port to "burn up" the trace on the board. This happened to mine for the ports on the top and also thought it was my mouse. I found out that the USB port inside the computer on the top were shorting out the small circuit board. So What I did was remove the small circuit board for the USB ports, and solder in a jumper wire to bridge the gap that was burned out. The cause, dust. I recommend blowing out the case every 3-5 months while it is unplugged with either duster or a compressed air gun preferably. I hope this helps you.

I cannot get my keyboard or my mouse to work with my dell computer. what can i do?


Please add more information to get specific assistance. Are these wireless devices? If wired, do they use USB or PS/2 connections.

For wireless devices, try replacing the batteries and resynching to the receiver. (You may want to check putting the receiver in different USB ports.)

For wired devices, disconnect and reconnect. For PS/2 devices, you will need to restart the computer to check if the devices work. For USB devices, try connecting to different USB ports.

Next step, try using a different keyboard and mouse (that work on another computer (stick to USB or PS/2 to match the current pair)). Try a wired set if the problem is with a wireless pair. If those work, continue diagnostics on the wireless keyboard and mouse. Check if the mouse and keyboard work on another computer. If they don't work with another computer, replace them.

If another USB keyboard and mouse pair don't work in any port, your USB ports may have failed. Check if even one port works enough to access the Device Manager. (Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager (Win7); similar directions in other versions of Windows) Check for a problem with the drivers (For USB ports, scroll down to the USB drivers and look for a triangle with a yellow exclamation point or red x). Try to update the driver or roll it back. If that doesn't help and one USB port works, a USB hub may solve the problem.

Otherwise if the USB or PS/2 ports do not work with any devices and the driver fix doesn't work, then I'd suspect a problem with the ports on the motherboard. Replace the motherboard/computer.

I hope this helps.

I have an Engage wireless mouse that has worked fine for about 6 months and now when I plug the adapter into my laptop (Windows 7), a message shows up USB Device not recognized. I have search for driver...


Does that message pop up when you plug it into every available USB port? Are your batteries charged? Is the mouse recognized on another computer?
This could mean that your USB port is dead or dying (unlikely) or that your mouse adapter is fried.
Try it on another computer, if you get the same message, it's off to the store for you!

I would try unplugging the usb receiver and restarting the computer.
Then plug it back in.
Sadly, with these, along with replacing the battery, that's the only option.

Cannot get mouse to work


1.
If the underside of the mouse has an on/off switch, make sure to set the switch to the "On" position.
2.
Restart the computer. This can resolve the problem, at least temporarily, so that other troubleshooting steps can be applied.
3.
Move the mouse or keyboard closer to the receiver
The receiver is the hardware that receives the wireless signals from the keyboard and mouse and communicates the data to the computer. Most receivers connect to a USB port, either directly or by a cable, but a few types of receivers connect to the PS/2 ports.
. Make sure that the keyboard and the mouse are within 100 centimeters (39 inches) of the receiver. If the receiver is attached to a cord, position it so that it is on the same level surface, close to the mouse and keyboard.

4. Replace the batteries with a fresh set of alkaline batteries and make sure they are correctly installed. If the mouse or keyboard is not working, then replace the batteries, even if the mouse/keyboard software indicate the batteries still have a charge.
Remove the battery cover to access the batteries. For keyboards, the battery access cover is found on the underside of the keyboard. When replacing the batteries look for the positive symbol (a plus sign +) imprinted near the battery compartment or battery cover. Make sure the positive end of the battery is oriented to the positive side of the compartment.

5.
If you have a USB receiver, unplug the USB receiver, wait 10 seconds, and then insert it into another USB port - preferably into a USB port that is closer to the mouse and keyboard. For example, if the USB receiver was plugged into a USB port on the back of the computer, unplug it and plug it into a front USB port.
6.
Resync the wireless keyboard and mouse connections.

Resync the keyboard and mouse connections for receivers with a connect button .
Resynchronizing the keyboard and/or mouse causes the devices to reconnect to the receiver using new identification numbers.
NOTE: The following connection sequence must be completed within 60 seconds. If the sequence is not done in 60 seconds, start over.

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


nikcorra2488,

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.

Spyder mouse won't work


I had a similar problem. I corrected by performing a manual connect as listed in the manual that came with the mouse.
Manual reconnect:
1. Plug in the receiver.
2. Turn on the mouse.
3. Press the button on the receiver.
4. Press the connect button on the mouse once within five seconds of pressing the button on the receiver.

This worked for me, and the mouse has worked fine since.

If this doesn't work. The manual suggested taking the batteries out of the mouse for 20 seconds and unplugging the receiver, then repeat the steps above.
If that doesn't work. reboot the computer and repeat the steps above.

Hope this helps.
