How to connect mouse to Toshiba laptop

First of all, I am assuming you are using a current laptop with USB connectors. For a corded mouse, insert the USB plug into a USB socket. After the computer recognizes the mouse, use the computer control panel software to set up the mouse. For a USB wireless mouse, insert the dongle into a USB socket. After the computer recognizes the dongle, use the computer control panel software to set up the mouse.

Dell 6420 laptop not recognizing USB ports while on docking station

Hello Jackie.

2 of youre USBs are USB 3. so you need to install the right drivers for USB 3.
Also you should check youre BIOS settings, if there is an option to enable "XHCI" support so enable it. (USB 3 needs this to work ).
regards Gue.

My Toshiba Satellite 2805 S301 USB 1 port, does not recognize my Passport external Hard disk drive. What can I do to solve this problem ? Thank you, very much for your assistance.


assuming that the external hard disk is usb

i would try this

plug in the external hard drive
then go to device manager
then hover your mouse at the top of the box
and look for a icon that says scan for new hardware
then hit the scan icon
your laptop may or maynot recognize the external hard drive at this stage
now leaving it plugged in restart the laptop
and with any luck windows will now recognize it

good luck
hope you get sorted with it

After not using my laptop for several months (it was plugged in however) my USB mouse will not work now when I boot up my Toshiba Satellite laptop.

Here are some trouble shooting steps you can try relatively easily....
If the mouse connects via a USB cable, try connecting it on another USB port while the laptop is on.
If it is an optical mouse, check to see if the LED(s) underneath are lit. Change ports until LED lights.
If you have another computer also with a USB mouse and it is working, try a mouse exchange. If the non-working mouse also does not work on the other computer and the mouse from the other computer works on your Toshiba Satellite laptop, the problem is likely with the non-working mouse.
Finally, If the non-working mouse is a wireless one, its battery may be dead. Try a new battery in it.

KVM switch mouse trouble

Does a mouse work if plugged directly into the laptop? Sometimes you have to change a laptop in the BIOS to allow a PS2 mouse in addition or instead of the touchpad. It may not be recognizing the KVM as a mouse. Try plugging the mouse right into the laptop and see if that works.

Make sure its driver on the mouse is working fine and that windows finds it right click on MY Computer then go to hardware, device manager and right click on Mouse and see if it is installed correctly try reinstalling driver for that mouse.
