(not) connecting a new mouse

I bought this mouse the other day and i just cannot make it work. it seems as if the usb receiver is not 'seeing' the mouse at all - nor is the computer. There was no driver software with it - should there be? And what do I need to do to make it work?

Hello, With the computer off plug in the mouse. I'm assuming it is wired, not wireless. Boot the computer. It should recognize new hardware and work, if not go to control panel and click on add new hardware and follow the instructions. Mouse could possibly be bad. Hope this helps. Thanks

Try checking if the batteries are working.
Maybe the guy gave you the wrong reciever.
Try first trouble shot the mouse, put in new batteries (because if the batteries are low it wont connect). If the mouse lights up, then its fine.

Now try the reciever on another computer. If the reciever doesnt work, then most likely that the reciever is faulty

Hope this helps

Cheers

Hi, I had the same problem. The USB device has what appears to be a circle with dots connected to it facing the port. The dots are actually the word "Connect" in infintessimally small letters. Plug it in, then use your thumb to press down on the circle while using another finger to press up on the device's underside - in effect, squeeze it between your fingers where the circle is. You'll see a red light blink. At that point you can push the "connect" button on your mouse and it will work.

Left button not working after few days of purchase


There are several possible solutions. I would first try reloading the drivers if you installed any. Disconnect the mouse and start the PC. Then shut down and connect the mouse and restart. Of course the first thing you need to check is the batteries in the mouse and the receiver that is connected. When working with wireless it is possible something maybe interferring with the signal for the button click function as well. Hope this helps.

Replaced Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2000 doesn't work


I would have suggested opening up your old mouse and cleaning the right click button first.

Generally, wireless devices have a connect button that finds the frequencies of the devices. On the receiver press this button, then press the button on the bottom of your new mouse. the receivers lights will stop flashing once connected.

Make sure (IF IT CAN BE CHARGED) that it is fully charged then on your mouse there should be button saying CONNECT be sure to click it so it can transmit to the reciever.

Can't work wireless mouse Daytona II


You have to plug in the usb receiver thingy.

Put the batteries in mouse and turn it on by switching the bottom from off to on.

There's a button the usb receiver. Push it. It will start flashes, turn over the mouse and you'll see a "connect" button. Push it.

a warning though, the product isn't good. everybody seems to be having issues with it & they cant get help from the makers of the product; so if you can, I would return it from wherever you bought it from. I got mine from walmart last night and I will be returning it tomorrow and exchanging it for a whole new different product

Microsoft wireless notebook optical mouse 3000 Doesnt seem to work?


Okay, a coworker had this problem and it was a fairly easy fix, first, plug the USB reciever into a direct USB port, then pess the connect button on the underside of the mouse, when the red light starts blinking let go and then press it and hold, and at the SAME TIME press and hold the connect button on the receiver until both the receiver light and the mouse light turn on steadily, and voila!
