My dell wireless mouse is not working. can u help

Hi, The first thing you need to do is to press and hold the green button on the bottom of the reciever until the light on the reciever blinks, then press and hold the green button on both the mouse and keyboard until the blinking stops. If this does not work all you need to do is replace your batteries. Hope this helps, Joe

Make sure that after you change the batteries that you re-sync the mouse with the receiver using the 'connect' buttons on each.

Hope this helps!

Mouse only works for a few seconds and then stops.

have you changed the batteries recently? Wireless mice seem to eat batteries faster. I have a Dell wireless mouse. It will work fine for months and then nothing. That's when I know to change out the batteries. If your batteries are fresh, make sure they are seated in their slots securely.

MS wireless notebook mouse 3000 not working?

A friend of mine brought me this problem with exactly the same problem. here is what I found. The small notch in usb device socket under the mouse was malfunctioning. If you press this notch you will find the mouse red light blink. If you further try pressing this notch at some point the mouse red light comes on constantly. Thats it, hold it there and try to connect first by pressing the usb device connect switch and then the mouse connect switch. The moment the connection is made the usb device stops blinking and the red light on the mouse starts blinking. Wow, it works now. Some one might just open the mouse and fix this microswtich for a permanent solution.
