-> make sure the USB driver is detected properly by the windows or other OS
(it should say "USB device connected" once you plug the transmitter in the usb slot of CPU)
-> if you have problem in this step like having "unrecognised device etc.. " make sure you have SP2 in your system
->Make sure the mouse has batteries that have life.
-> Make sure the mouse and traansmitter are at a reasonable distance.. if more than some 10 feet, most of the wireless mouse dont work

Yes, the mouse most likely uses Bluetooth to communicate with your laptop and is independent of your wired/wireless connection to the internet. The mouse should have come with an adapter that plugs into one of your USB ports. Plug it in and once the drivers load (automatically), your new wireless mouse should be working!

The microsoft wireless mouse stopped working after a power failure. I get a message that says the USB device is not there. But I cannot navigate my computer w/o the mouse


The Microsoft wireless mouse comes with a wireless receiver, right? Before you do anything, the first thing that you can try is to replace the batteries with fresh ones.

If same problem occur, try to connect the wireless receiver into different USB ports of the computer. Then check if your wireless receiver and mouse has a connect button. If it does have connect buttons, briefly press the connect button on the receiver, then hold down the connect button on the mouse for 5 seconds. Then release the connect buttons.

If you get the same problem, hold down both connect buttons (receiver and mouse) at the same time for 5 seconds.

Last, try to connect the wireless receiver into different computer. If you get the same problem, send the receiver and mouse to the manufacturer for repair.

Thank you and good luck!

Wireless mouse locks up


I would suggest investing in a USB mouse. They never have this problem and are very cheap to buy. I have found that wireless mice are prone to problems. I would say there is a problem in the connection between your mouse and the laptop but this sort of problem is quite hard to find. As I said, you are better off with USB mouse.

Wireless mouse will not work


Look on the bottom of the mouse for a connect button and also on the wireless receiver. Push the button on the mouse first, release and then push the button on the receiver.

CANT GET WIRELESS MOUSE TO WORK


Try changing with a new set of batteries. also try to reset the connection of the wireless mouse and keyboard. you can locate a connect button on both the reciever and wireless keyboard. press both of them together and release them. this would reset the connection. try doing the same for reciever and wireless mouse connect buttons. this should work. also check for any possible alignment issues.
