Hi, I had the same problem. The USB device has what appears to be a circle with dots connected to it facing the port. The dots are actually the word "Connect" in infintessimally small letters. Plug it in, then use your thumb to press down on the circle while using another finger to press up on the device's underside - in effect, squeeze it between your fingers where the circle is. You'll see a red light blink. At that point you can push the "connect" button on your mouse and it will work.

I had the same problem until I read in the instruction book that you also have to press the "button" on the USB receiver, then it began working fine. Hope this helps!

I have a ge 98563 ergonomic wireless mini mouse and my laptop wont recognize it


I have had no problems with my compaq laptop and the mini mouse. It recognized it even after OS downgrade to XP. The reset buttons on the mouse and the transceiver need to be activated or reset when sitting idle for a while. Once you get them both "blinking" it works great. Good mouse for the price... Your laptop should recognize it. Just check the reset and make sure the lites are on and communicating.

1. Go to manufacturer's website and download the driver for the correct MODEL of the mouse.

2. Install mouse driver. Go "Control Panel" to configure mouse software.

3. o/s XP, right mouse click "My Computer" go Properties, Hardware tab, Device Manager, scroll down to "Mice and other Pointing Devices" to see if it is registered, and also check "USB Human Interface Device" in the same window to see if your usb connections are functioning. There should be NO YELLOW question marks in this window pertaining to USB and Mice Pointing Devices.

If it was a wired mouse with no name or model, you can just plug it into the ports and it will work. Unfortunately, since it is wireless, you MUST have the correct drivers(software that allows your computer to communicate with the device), and the only way you can get the correct drivers is through the manufacturer and choose the right model.

GE wireless optical mouse suddenly stopped working. i restarted computer and tried to reset both mouse and the receiver to no avail. also changed out batteries.


Hi, my mouse work fine since pressed simultaneously the buttons of the mouse and the receiver. Previously, I had disarm the receiver, but all was fine, so I'd arm again the receiver and plug to laptop; I'd press both buttons and mouse work. For any reasson, mouse and receiver lost conection and is necessary re-establish comunication pressed both buttons. I hope my experience (my case) to be useful to someone.

No mouse response with arc mouse


I had a similar problem: brand new arc mouse. Used it with the supplied batteries which ran out of juice yesterday. Put new batteries in this morning and the cursor wouldn't move at all. Tried every port, other computers etc but nothing. The tranceiver was connecting fine and being detected. The mouse was showing the green light as it should when you unfold it.
In the end i uninstalled intelipoint and was about to take the mouse back to the shop where i bought it. I gave it one more try and it worked!
So to cut a long story short - just try uninstalling the microsoft mouse software. Hope that works for some of you.

CE 0560 Logiech went dead, batteries are ok, just stopped working


By now you've got your problem fixed or you've bought a new mouse, but I had the exact same thing today. I tried everything you did, then I found a crazy solution that suddenly worked. I haven't a clue know whether it'll work for anyone else, but here it is:

When "connecting" the cordless mouse to the transmission unit (ie, enabling them to work together) you go ahead and first press the "Connect" button on the transmitter first. (I'm sure everybody knows that.) But the trick for me was that when I then pushed the small white connect button on the bottom of the mouse, I finally used a ballpoint pen (retracted) to make that white button really engage. That did it for me. My finger was just too soft to make that little white button on the mouse engage properly. The second I pressed firmly with the pen, hallelujah!, it worked.

I hope that works for you. Cheers!

Logitech Mouse V320 Corless Optical Mouse not working


The warrenty period is usually a year. Is there a connection button on the receiver as well? Normally you need to press the connect button on the mouse, and then on the receiver shortly there after. If you want to replace it, you might have an easier time just getting a new mouse.
