Question about Computers & Internet
I downloaded the CD that came with my mouse, but the mouse did not work. I managed to go through the "Start" menu and get to "Connectivity" menu. Once I reset the mouse, it started working. Once computer was turned back "On" the next day, the mouse failed to work again. Any suggestions?
I have a A4 tech R7 mouse that will not work when computer is switched on until I remove the batteries and replace them.

Tips for a great answer:
make sure the batteries are inserted correctly and have charge if applicable
usually located on the underside of the mouse there might be small plastic sticker with a phillips head screw under it rub your fingernail over the top to see if it has a screw
or make sure the usb device is properly inserted for wireless
the usb or Ps2 connection are secure with a dust free connection
or it might be the usb for wireless mouse or lead connecting to the usb port or even a faulty mouse
if this does not fix the problem
restart you computer tap the f8 key repeatedly to enter safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you an attempt to repair your computer
If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen.
Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only
Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Start Windows Normally
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
select safe mode
click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to mice and other pointing devices you might see a yellow exclamation mark ! or question mark ? or a red x
right click you will need to update the driver
click start control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons pointers pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have options to update driver rollback driver or uninstall also
I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop
then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 arrows >> then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7
in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar
Click start control panel keyboard hardware make sure you have the right keyboard selected
or you might have uninstall the keyboard then restart your computer then reinstall it and its drivers
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to keyboard you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click update driver
hope this helps
complete range of drivers
