Hi Lesley, I take it you have tried another usb port ? and that mouse on another PC.

you might need to download the USB hub driver for your board if windows generic driver is causing problems.

Can I suggust you goto the control panel select the Device Manager and select the USB Hub(s) and press the delete key.

Now reboot the machine and it should reinstall the generic drivers for USB , try it now, look for updated drivers regarding the USB. if that still does not provide you with a solution then I suggest buying a USB pci card. But Please make sure the USB devices work okay first.

Regards
GeWiz.

How do I connect my Logitech wireless mouse to my computer


I use Logitech wireless mice and so does my wife. After a battery change you have to reconnect the mouse with the wireless receiver
. First push the button on the receiver, then push the button on the bottom of the mouse. It should connect and you will be ready to go. If this doesn't get the mouse working, you may have to unplug the mouse, then plug it back in the USB port, then reconnect to the receiver. Hope that helps.

Doesn't work.....no laser light appears on the bottom of the mouse. Nothing happens when I hit the "connect" button.


It sounds like these is either a problem with the USB port on the motherboard or with the mouse itself.

Assuming that if a wireless mouse: the batteries are new, the device is actually turned on and the transmitter has been removed from the mouse and plugged into the the USB port and it still does not work, it should be tried on all the other USB ports of the computer. If none work, try on another computer.

This will help determine if the mouse or the computer is the problem. If the mouse does not work on other ports or on the other computer, a defective mouse is likely. If it does work in a different USB port of the original computer, the first USB port is suspect.

If it only works on a different computer, the problem my lie in the setup or BIOS page of the computer. Look for a setting for USB ports. Enable the ports if disabled, and try again. If still no luck, there is some other issue at the motherboard level. Unless fairly new and under warranty, it will probably not be worth trying to fix the problem, when a $20 USB expansion card could be purchased and installed to provide USB connectivity needed.

You could also try connecting a different USB device (if available) to test the USB port. A USB webcam, hard drive, mechanical mouse, etc. are all good choices to test the port. You should indicate or cover any ports that are found to be defective.

I hope this helped and good luck!

Laser doesnt work


Check the mouse cord and make sure that it is properly connected to the PS2 port of you computer. Turn off your computer, wait for a few seconds and then power it on. If it failed to function properly, contact the store where you bought it about the problem. The device is cover by its' warranty and they may replace it if found defected.

Hope this could help you..:-) Thanks..

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.

Keyboard want light up but mouse works


The buttons on the top (silver) are linked to your "Favorites" folder in Internet Explorer.

The buttons to the right of that are used for your media player (To skip tracks and adjust volumes, play pause etc)

The buttons on the left (from top to bottom) are:

1) My documents folder will open
2) MSN or Windows Live! Messenger will open
3) Your E-Mail will open (whatever your default email program is)
4) Calculator Opens
5) Windows Update will open

Now... In order for these you HAVE to have the drivers installed. If you didn't get a CD with your keyboard, you can download the drivers directly from Microsoft here:

http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category=MK

Just fill in the drop-downs and press "Go", it should show you a link the the exact driver you need to install. Once it's been installed you can set up your favorites with the software that it installs.

try one of the method below:
Method 1: Try different ports loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Warning If you have to change a PS/2 connection, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. Do not plug a PS/2 device in the PS/2 port while the computer is running.

To determine whether the problem is related to the ports on the computer, use only the two cables that are included with the wireless desktop receiver, or the single cable that is included with a mouse.
USB keyboard and USB mouse loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); If the USB cable is currently connected to a USB hub, disconnect the device from the hub, and then connect it to a USB port on the computer. If your device is already connected to a USB port on the computer, try to connect the device to a different USB port if one is available.

Note Only one USB connection to the computer is required, even if your device has two USB plugs. If the problem persists, disconnect other USB devices and connect only the USB plug from the receiver to a USB port on the computer.
PS/2 devices loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); If your devices are connected to PS/2 ports on the computer, verify that you have the following configurations: • Verify that the USB plug for your mouse is connected to the green USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the mouse PS/2 port on the computer.

If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the mouse PS/2 port, see the documentation that came with the computer. • Verify that the USB plug for the keyboard is connected to the purple USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the keyboard PS/2 port on the computer. The keyboard PS/2 port on the computer may also be purple. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the keyboard PS/2 port, see the documentation that came with the computer.If you have to change your configuration, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer.

If these steps do not resolve the problem, use a cotton bud to clean the lens without scratching it.
