Hello Wilfred14,

Please ensure that you are not using the mouse over a glass surface, or a shiny surface. Try using it on a sheet of white paper or a multicolored mouse pad instead. Should that not work, download the latest version of IntelliType from HERE, for your OS.
Next, uninstall the existing driver from the "Add/Remove Programs" section of the Control Panel.
Now reinstall the latest driver and restart the machine. That should work..

It could also be that the Backspace key on your laptop's keyboard is stuck. try reinstalling the k/b driver if you have it. If not, please take the laptop back to the point of purchase and have them sort it out for you..

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied. If not, please post back as to what you did, and/or any other questions you may have, and I will try to assist you as best I can. Please do not assign an ‘Inappropriate’ or ‘Thanks for trying’ rating if your issue is not resolved after the first response itself, as sometimes a bit of to and fro dialogue may be necessary before we can find a fix or an answer to your query.

If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! or Helpful rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

How to install 2.4Ghz wireless mouse with USB receiver?


Insert the batteries into the mouse. Turn the mouse over, find the battery cover, and slide it off. Insert the appropriate batteries-usually two AAs.
  • The wireless receiver that plugs into the computer uses USB power, so it needs no batteries.
Connect the receiver to the computer. If your computer has a USB port (as most do), plug your receiver into an available port. There will also be a green adapter supplied, in the event that your system requires the use of the mouse port. Caution-don't try and force the mouse adapter into the keyboard port!
  • The mouse receiver has a USB plug (left), but can also plug into the mouse plug through the adapter it came with (right). If your receiver plugs into the USB port it should look like the left. If it plugs into the mouse plug it should look like the one on the right, only connected to the receiver.
Connect the mouse to the receiver. Place the mouse in close proximity to the receiver, and note the following:
  • The receiver should have a visible button that is easily pushable by the average human finger.
  • The mouse will usually have a very small reset button in a hole on the bottom that can be pushed by something like a pencil or paper clip.
  • Push both buttons at the same time with the receiver and the mouse relatively close to each other for about 5 seconds or more.
Find a permanent position the receiver. Place the receiver where it won't be far away from the mouse. Depending on where you are, you can place it on the monitor, on the tower, on the back of your laptop (if you are installing the mouse to your laptop) or on the desk.
  • The furthest a wireless mouse can get away from the receiver and still function is about 9 feet (2.7 meters), so keep that in mind.
Test your new mouse.
  • If you plugged into the mouse port, restart your computer.
  • If you plugged it into the USB port you should be able to use it immediately.
  • 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.
Adjust your mouse settings. Use the control panel that came with your wireless mouse, or download the necessary software from the manufacturer's website. Adjust the settings so that the mouse performs as you require.

Is my Logitech wireless mouse defective?


A number of times, I had the USB transceiver go defective after a bit more than a year. First make sure the mouse batteries are in good condition. If so, I would try the transceiver. I ordered about six of them from Logitech. I have a number of computers using these. After having two fail I decided to have spares all the time.

Non responding wireless mouse and keyboard


mcdevito75 here, Sounds like the mouse itself is faulty, if the right button when depressed returns to position and you hear the familiar click, and you don"t hear that from the left button, then the mouse itself is faulty, ask Dell to send another mouse, it should be on warranttee with your new computer.
