Hello how do i get the wireless mouse to work on my laptop? i have it plugged in but it doesn't work


1. Put in the batteries Find the battery cover and slide it off. Insert the appropriate batteries. The wireless receiver that plugs into the computer runs off the computer's power and needs no batteries.

2. Plug in the receiver to the computer. Usually the receiver will plug into the USB port, but some plug into the mouse port. If all of your USB ports are filled, see if the mouse came with a USB adapter. The adapter fits into the mouse port. Be careful not to accidentally force the mouse adapter into the keyboard port.

3. Connect the mouse once you have it plugged in. The receiver should have a visible button that is easily pushable by the average human finger. The mouse will usually have a very small hole with a button inside it that can only 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.

4. Position the receiver in a place that isn't 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 without not working very well is about 9 feet (2.7 meters), so keep that in mind.

5. Test your new mouse.
- If you plugged into the mouse port, restart your computer manually.
- If you plugged it into the USB port you may begin using it.
- 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.

Hope this help. Goodluck!

Mouse model 1007 does not work. lights are both lit one on mouse one on receiver but cursor doesnt move. hit the connect button and still nothing. Your help would be greatly appreciated.


Remove the battery and put it back again

Try plugging the receiver in a new USB port and install the drivers again. If it is already installed, make sure the Mouse is being detected by viewing it in Device manager.

After following the above steps, you can press the connect button to sync up with the receiver.

The issue can most probably be related to corrupted/hang drivers so you can try restarting the computer and changing USB slot for receiver.

The wireless keyboard and mouse are not working.


  • Check to ensure that the wireless receiver is plugged into your computer. Press the "Connect" button on the bottom of the receiver to attempt reconnecting your mouse and keyboard to the computer. If your mouse and keyboard use Bluetooth, ensure that your computer's Bluetooth is active and detects the mouse and keyboard.
  • Check to see if the keyboard and mouse are turned on. If the power indicator lights on the keyboard and mouse are not green, press the "Power" button to turn the keyboard and mouse on.
  • Check the batteries of the mouse and keyboard. If the batteries are dead, replace them with fresh batteries and reconnect the mouse and keyboard to the computer by pressing the "Connect" button on the bottom of the wireless receiver attached to the computer. If your mouse and keyboard use rechargeable batteries, let the batteries recharge before using the device again.
  • Uninstall and reinstall your wireless keyboard and mouse drivers. Sometimes, the Logitech drivers are at fault for a bad connection. Use the Control Panel to uninstall the old drivers, then visit the Logitech website and install the latest drivers for your keyboard and mouse.
  • Search the Logitech Support Database. If your keyboard and mouse are still failing to function properly, visit the Logitech Support website and browse the support page for your product for specific solutions.

I am plugging the stick into my office laptop. There doesn't seem to be a connection with the stick and the mouse.


First off make sure you have fresh batteries in the mouse. If the batteries are missing or weak then that would cause the no connection between the mouse and the usb stick.

After you check the mouse out for fresh batteries, then go ahead and plug the usb stick into your laptop. At this point you should hear a sound and windows should install the drivers for that mouse, if it doesn't then the next thing would be to try another computer or laptop that has working usb ports and try to connect the usb stick on another computer.

If it works then that means there is an issue with the usb ports on your office laptop. If the mouse still doesn't work then that means the usb stick is bad and you would need to buy a new mouse.

I have an hp wireless mouse, and it doesn´t work!! Tried everything...


Wireless device like the mouse needs a wireless connectivity to a computer like a bluetooth or a wireless receiver. Make sure that your mouse batteries are all working and the wireless receiver is properly plug into the USB(Universal Serial Bus) port of the computer. The wireless receiver don't need battery so you don't have to worry about it. The two both have a push button, press both buttons to activate the connection. Wireless connections has limit in distance so make sure that you are not too far away from the receiver while using the mouse and that is 9 feet or 2.7 meters so keep that in mind. 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.

Hope this could help you a lot..:-) Thanks..

The touchpad mouse fails to click on items then when we plug in a usb mouse the same thing happens. it just will not click and stay clicked long enough to change settings.


You may want to try shutting down the computer, and plugging in the USB mouse normally USB mice are ready to go. also make sure the mouse has fresh batteries, if it uses them. If neither of these works check your mouse settings in your "Control panel"

Mouse Right click doesn't work


hello!

o Install fresh batteries. Try brand new-high quality batteries you absolutely know are fresh and working.
o Install the latest software. Totally remove all software and reinstall from scratch.
o Try a different port and Resynchronize your device to the receiver. Try plugging the mouse into a different USB port try powering down the computer and using the PS2 port for the mouse instead. Mice in my experience overall work better using PS2 ports on PCs that have them.
o Clean the mouse lens. This problem may occur if you are using an optical or laser mouse and the lens on the mouse is dirty.

Wireless keyboard


wireless keyboards and in wireless mouse devices, use the following methods in the order that they appear in.

Method 1: Try different ports loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Warning If you have to change a PS/2 connection, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. Do not plug a PS/2 device in the PS/2 port while the computer is running.

To determine whether the problem is related to the ports on the computer, use only the two cables that are included with the wireless desktop receiver, or the single cable that is included with a mouse.
USB keyboard and USB mouse loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); If the USB cable is currently connected to a USB hub, disconnect the device from the hub, and then connect it to a USB port on the computer. If your device is already connected to a USB port on the computer, try to connect the device to a different USB port if one is available.

Note Only one USB connection to the computer is required, even if your device has two USB plugs. If the problem persists, disconnect other USB devices and connect only the USB plug from the receiver to a USB port on the computer.
PS/2 devices loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); If your devices are connected to PS/2 ports on the computer, verify that you have the following configurations: • Verify that the USB plug for your mouse is connected to the green USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the mouse PS/2 port on the computer. The mouse PS/2 port on the computer may also be green. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the mouse PS/2 port, see the documentation that came with the computer. • Verify that the USB plug for the keyboard is connected to the purple USB-to-PS/2 adapter and that this adapter is plugged in the keyboard PS/2 port on the computer. The keyboard PS/2 port on the computer may also be purple. If you are not sure which PS/2 port is the keyboard PS/2 port, see the documentation that came with the computer.If you have to change your configuration, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer. If your mouse or keyboard has both USB and PS/2 connections, try using the other connection.
PS/2 keyboard and USB mouse loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); Verify that the USB mouse is plugged in a USB port on the computer and that the purple keyboard PS/2 plug is connected to the purple PS/2 port on the computer. If you have to change the PS/2 connection, shut off the computer, make the changes, and then restart the computer.

Method 2: Install fresh batteries loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Both the wireless keyboard and the wireless mouse rely on AA alkaline batteries for power. If the problem persists, install a fresh set of batteries in the device that you are experiencing problems with.

Method 3: Resynchronize your device to the receiver loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To resynchronize the mouse or keyboard to the receiver, follow these steps.

Note When you synchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, put the device near the receiver and put other wireless keyboards and mouse more than six feet away. 1. Press the button on the receiver, and then verify that the light on the receiver starts to blink. 2. If a dialog box appears on the screen in several seconds, follow the instructions that appear on the screen.

Otherwise, go to the next step. 3. Press and release the Connect Channel button on the bottom of your mouse or keyboard. 4. Check the green light on the receiver. A steady green light means the synchronization was successful. If the problem persists, try steps 1 through 4 again.

Clean the mouse lens loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); This problem may occur if you are using an optical or laser mouse and the lens on the mouse is dirty. To clean the lens of an optical or laser mouse, follow these steps: 1. Use a dry cloth to clean the bottom surface of the mouse. 2. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 3. If you see dust on the bottom of the mouse, use a can of pressurized de-ionized air to blow away the dust on the lens. 4. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 5. If the pressurized air canister is not available, blow dry air on the lenses by using your mouth one or two times. 6. Check to see whether the mouse functions correctly. 7. If these steps do not resolve the problem, use a cotton bud to clean the lens without scratching it.
