Mouse is whacked

I've got an optical mouse that has stopped working. First the red light was always on and the cursor was not moving at all. Now, the cursor moves when I move the mouse but when I click on an area nothing happens. I'm stuck and have no idea how to get this to work.

First you should check it in any other system if mouse does not work then u should exchange your mouse or open it u can easily repair it..
but if the mouse works then there may be a spyware in ur system so check for it .
best of luck

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?

Mikomi 3 Button Mini Optical Mouse AM-9170U Not Working!


On an optical mouse, two thngs happen. The light shines out and a sensor reads the reflection almost like a camera image. Try some other surfaces, particularly ones which are not shiny. If that doesn't help, install the mouse on some other computer. If that works, reinstall your drivers on the first computer, removing the old ones as best you can (Control Panel...Device Manager...etc.). If it doesn't work on the other computer, check for any switches on the mouse (that would be uncommon) and for warranty coverage. Otherwise, the light sensor is probably broken and there is little you can do.

USB mouse is jittery


Try the mouse on a different surface, also be sure you do not have any light directed at the mouse - this confuses the eye. Although no mouse pad is required for an optical mouse, sometimes it helps

My laptop is not able to sense my external USB gemini mini wired optical mouse. My laptop is with my friends one day, but once I started my laptop, the laptop is not respondeing to my mouse. Its red light...


Have you tried the Mouse with another computer?
If you did and it worked, my guess would be a driver issue.
If you did and it didn't work there may be a problem with the mouse.
If you haven't the please do so and let me know what your results are so I can try to help you further.

Thanks

Mouse stopped working, but appears ok, batteries ok, can't determine problem


Hope this helps others. My mouse stopped controlling cursor but buttons worked. Problem was it would not work on a black table. Slip a piece of white paper under it and waaala! It works. I'm thinking optical mouse and dark surface might be an issue.
