Usually Vista does not need driver to install an USB Mouse.
Try this:
Turn off the laptop, then put the mouse connection. Turn on again. See if now it is working. The mouse should be connected in "off"
If still does not work, try put in other USB port of the laptop. Usually a laptop has at least 2 USB port. Remember to connect it always in "off".

I have a new iHome Optical travel mouse on my laptop. I can't get it to work.


Did you put in new batteries.

Did you try a different USB port.

Did you go to start button, control panel, windows update, run windows update, if it needs a driver, win update might find it.

Usually windows will use a generic driver for any usb mouse and as soon as you plug it in windows see's it.

It should have come with a disk, maybe there is a driver on it, but rare windows can't find it.

If you try these things and noting, its the mouse, contact the seller or the MFG and ask them for help, send email.

Mouse broke on pc so brought another, and another, but same problem at the end.( found new hardware - unknown device. windows found driver software but encountered a problem installing it) hav now bought 4...


drivers required for mouse operation will be provided in windows itself so u can try connecting your mouse via USB port(except ball mounted mouse)better use optical mouse ...even after this if it is not working then you need to reinstall the OS.

thank you..

My logitech mouse died. It is a cordless add on for my lap top. Help!


Have you changed/charged the batteries?

Re-install the drivers and software (it comes in a CD).
Or look for your model on the Logitech website.
Click on Drivers. choose your model (usually on the receiver)
Download the drivers for your version of Windows (XP, Vista).
run the program.

My hard drive got damged and has bean replaced with a new one, I cant get operating system to work more than 30 days. I have installed vista using a reboot disk that came with lap top. The lap top worked...


I AM CURENTLY AWITING ANOTHER REBOOT DISK AS THE MANUFACTUERS OF THE LAP TOP SAID IT MIGHT NEAD THE FULL INSTAL OF VISTA HOME BASIC AND NOT JUST THE REBBOT PROGRAM VERSION I GOT WITH THE PC. AS THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE THE START UP SETINGS THAT CONFIGS THE BIOS TO USE VISTA. ( I DIDNT UNDERSTAND THIS TILL I ACTURLY GOT INTO THE BIOS) THE NEW DISK WILL ASLO INCLUDE A NEW PRODUCT KEY THAT DOES NOT NEAD TO BE CONFIRMD VIA INTERNET TO USE AS IT IS JUST THE BASIC VISTA PROGRAM THAT SHOLD ALOW ME TO INSTAL MY UTILITIS AND DRIVERS TO INSTAL THE MODEMS AND OTHER SYSTEM FILES. WHEN I ORIGANLY GOT THE LAP TOP IN 2007 THE REBOOT &RECOVERY DISKS ONLY HAD THE SET UP PROGRAMS THIS ALOWS YOU TO INSTAL VISTA OPERATING SYSTEM BUT NOT ALL THE PROGRAMS WILL WORK AS YOU NEAD TO DOWNLOAD THE FULL SYSTEM SETINGS. SO JUST TO LET OTHERS KNOW IF YOU GOT A LAP TOP OR PC THAT ONLY HAD A REBOOT DISK TO CHEK THAT IT IS THE FULL VERSION ( NEW VISTA RECOVERY 2008 ) AND NOT THE 2007 ONE

I WIL LET YOU KNOW HOW I DID IT IF THIS WORKS

THANKS FOR THE OFFER
