My wireless mouse - cursor refuses to follow sometimes!

Mt wireless mouse (2 yrs old and previously worked great) no longer moves the cursor accurately - the cursor moves sluggishlyeluctantly! When on Internet the cursor almost seems as if it's going to go anywhere but where you want to click. Changing thebatteries makes no difference.

Try cleaning the lazer on bottom with a q tip with some rubbing alcohol on it. Check to make sure the reciever for the mouse isn't too close to any wireless router,phone,or microwave. In the control panel there are mouse settings you can play with too to see if that makes a difference. Re-install any software for the mouse.

My mouse cursor will not move on the screen when I try to use my new wireless mouse. The light comes on on the bottom of the mouse and the USB is plugged into the computer. The USB blinks red when plugged...


Hello, hope this isn't a silly suggestion, but have you pressed the 'connect' buttons on the mouse and receiver so that the 2 devices can synchronize?

Logitech wireless optical mouse won't move computer cursor


Sometimes on wireless mice the contacts get warped or bent, so when you move it or set it down the batteries are not making full contact on both ends and the mouse loses power.

You can try adjusting the contacts or using a conductive material to make the contact (like a staple or paperclip), but you're probably better off spending the $10 or $20 to get a new mouse.

My mouse will light up but my cursor will not move..i went into the properties and it said that my device is working properly


if its a wireless mouse, it sounds like it needs to be snyced, refer to your manual or the internet for extact instructions but the snyc method is usally as follows, press the sync button on the reciever then on the mouse, sometimes its vise-versa, and sometimes you have to hold the button then press the sync button on the other half

I have an hp wireless mouse, and it doesn´t work!! Tried everything...


Wireless device like the mouse needs a wireless connectivity to a computer like a bluetooth or a wireless receiver. Make sure that your mouse batteries are all working and the wireless receiver is properly plug into the USB(Universal Serial Bus) port of the computer. The wireless receiver don't need battery so you don't have to worry about it. The two both have a push button, press both buttons to activate the connection. Wireless connections has limit in distance so make sure that you are not too far away from the receiver while using the mouse and that is 9 feet or 2.7 meters so keep that in mind. When the cursor moves when you move the mouse, you have connected the mouse properly. If the cursor doesn't move, try repositioning the receiver. If it still doesn't work, you may need to restart your computer (if you haven't already) or reconnect everything.

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

Acer 3100 Notebook Touchpad issues


Dust has built up in and around the touch pad. Purchase a can of pc dust buster, and give it a blast in and around all keys and the touchpad. You may have one sticky key which is causing the pad to behave erratically.

Gateway 610 k/b & mouse unrecognized..CMOS problem??


It's not the K/M, there probably was a surge that went through, and effected the motherboard in the computer. so you can take it to your local computer shop. But, before you bring it there, back up your important files because they might have to format your HD.
