Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

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!!!

Try it on another computer. If won't work, it's bad news. Personally, I had a very bad experience with wireless "Mice"

My advice: get a new one

I use a logitech infared wireless mouse most the time, however when i unplgged my laptop today the mouse on the laptop would not engage? is there a button perhaps that I toughed? I have rebooted several...


Check the batteries. Logitech mouse seems to work till battery has completely empty.

When battery/s is dead it suddenly stops, working till the last minute of battery life.

The "mouse" on my Hp Pavillion laptop stopped working last night---it will not move the cursor. Can I fix this and if so, please explain in basic layman's terms so I can understand the instructions?


Is this a wireless mouse, or a wired one? If it is wired, there could be 1) so much dirt between the ball and the contacts inside the mouse housing that it won't move (usually there is a way to remove the ball and use tweezers to try and remove all the accumulated stuff); 2) the connection (plug) could have worked loose. Pull the plug out, reinsert it, and reboot. 3) the cord could have a bend or been steppedon and have a poor or no connection. A new mouse is in order. If it is a wireless mouse, batteries are the probable culprit. We put new rechargeable batteries in less than a week ago in ours, and even though our mouse goes in a charger when we are not using it, it would not work until I put new rechargeable batteries in. Remember - even new things can be bad.

If it has a wire to the back of the computer make sure its plugged in tight sometimes tahey come loose. if its wireless change batteries. If neither buy new mouse.

Microsoft wireless mouse 3000 - all lights are on; flash upon reset, but still doesn't work. Running Vista 64-bit.


Try to take off battery and next push and hold down the small button that protrudes where the receiver is placed in the mouse, put back battery and simultaneusly release the button,it might make the mouse operate correctly. Good luck!!!! Chawah.

My router stopped working suddenly last night


Try The Reset Switch on the back...Then If that doesnt solve the problem plug it directly into a computer alone and go to your web browser and type in http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.2.1 It is usually your default ip of your Router and look for a reset link...if that doesnt work try a firmware upgrade from NetGears Website

Toshiba wireless mouse cursor not moving!


Try replacing the batteries or if it has rechargeable batteries, try removing and replacing them. Also clean the red lens on the bottom of the mouse with a cotton swab. Good luck!

Laptop going fritzo! when hooked up to wireless mouse


If you can try to hook up the mouse to another computer or a friends computer, if it still acts the same way then it's the mouse and probably should be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Wireless mouse not working


I worked this out last night! Click the button on the top of the dongle and the connect button on the back of the mouse at the same time and it works.

It's not working right....


The BenQ M310 mouse needs to "sync" with the USB receiver. Need to push the two buttons at the same time, or maybe the one in the mouse first then push the button in the USB receive so the two can "sync" to each other. This may solve this problem. Good luck!
