Question about PC Desktops

I was playing my computer game last night when my wireless mouse suddenly stopped working, I placed new batteries in as this is the usual solution but it does not seemed to have worked. I know its not the USB port as I have a cord mouse which I placed in there which worked. Please help as my keyboard which is attached to the same device works but I don't know enough about computers as to why this has happened and how to fix it!

First turn off your computer let it rest for about 5 minutes. Then restart it again. Usually this is all what systems need. Next try checking the usb attached to the computer before turning it on again. Plug and unplug it. If there is no major problem on your mouse. This should do the trick. Please dont forget to rate me. Thanks!!!

The microsoft wireless mouse stopped working after a power failure. I get a message that says the USB device is not there. But I cannot navigate my computer w/o the mouse

The Microsoft wireless mouse comes with a wireless receiver, right? Before you do anything, the first thing that you can try is to replace the batteries with fresh ones.

If same problem occur, try to connect the wireless receiver into different USB ports of the computer. Then check if your wireless receiver and mouse has a connect button. If it does have connect buttons, briefly press the connect button on the receiver, then hold down the connect button on the mouse for 5 seconds. Then release the connect buttons.

If you get the same problem, hold down both connect buttons (receiver and mouse) at the same time for 5 seconds.

Last, try to connect the wireless receiver into different computer. If you get the same problem, send the receiver and mouse to the manufacturer for repair.

Thank you and good luck!

Wireless mouse will not connect or respond

Insert the new batteries, making sure that the positive(+) and negative (-) ends of each battery match the polarity indicators inside the battery housing.
When replacing the batteries, you may use
alkaline or other heavy-duty NiMH batteries. Never use an
alkaline with a NiMH battery in a device.
Avoid mixing new and used batteries in a device. Slide the battery cover back into position until it “clicks” firmly into place. Turn on the mouse be sliding the on/off switch on the bottom of the mouse to the “on” position.
The optical sensor, located on the bottom of the mouse, glows red.
6 Just somethings to check, One other thing to take a peek at, on the transmitter look to see is there is a tiny button that may say connect or reconnect. You may need a pen if you have chubby fingers like me.
Hope this helped, please leave a rating,
thank you kindly

Didn't get any instructions with the iconcepts wireless scroll mouse and when i plug it into the back of the computer it doesn't work.

If it came with a CD (drivers) put them in and follow the instructions. You usually put the drivers in before plugging in the hardware . Some mice have a place for a battery (make sure + =+ & - = -). then plug the transmitter into the USB here is what I think is the problem...on the bottom of the mouse (usually) look for a tiny button that may say connect near it. push it and that syncronises the sender with the receiver. If the mouse doen't have one look for the same connect button on the dongle...Hope this works for you...if not go to the manufacturers' web site and look for product support.

My wireless optical mouse is no longer working

You replaced the batteries. Okay. Did you install drivers for the mouse from a CD? Are you using Windows XP? Do you notice any change if you use the mouse on a darker surface as opposed to lighter surface? If the computer installed the drivers for you, then you might want to delete them in Device Manager (might be called something like HID-Compliant Mice. Single click on that entry, press the delete key. You might have to reboot your PC after that. From there you might have to unplug, then plug in the mouse again and you should notice the driver reinstalling. Give it a second and all should be good.

*Access the Device Manager by right-clicking on My Computer, select Properties, go to the Hardware tab and select Device Manager.

Microsoft wireless multimedia keyboard 1.0A

I suppose you should reset the keyboard and mouse and maybe the access point itself. Try find small buttons on each devise and press them AT THE TIME. You may need somebody's help. Those buttos can by hidden under mouse and keyboard and should be on the top of the access point. This depend on the model, so please reffer to a manual.
