Question about Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse

Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 doesn't work

I have a Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000. It worked fine for several months, but it stopped working. My O.S. is Win XP Home.

Stuff I tried:

* I went into Control Panel -> Mouse. It says that my driver is working fine, my batteries are charged, and I get full signal.

* I tried different USB ports.

* Following Microsoft's advice, I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers.

* I pressed the button on the receiver, and while it blinks for a few seconds the mouse cursor does respond to mouse movements (albeit jerkily), but it stops after the blinking stops.

* It behaves the same way in Linux.

Hi
If you take the batteries out there is a screw in there. unscrew and open (not easy) with flat knife in the edges wiggling.
attach and touch all the inside wires. I have had the same problem and it is an internal connector problem. Opening and closing aint easy and will take a little patience but it will work.
Good luck

    You need to be careful when doing this on a 6000. There are multiple tiny screws under the "pads" and labels that need to be removed also

I have lost my Microsoft Laser Mouse 6000 Disc


Visit the official software download site at Microsoft:You'll want to select your operating system, 32- or 64-bit then your language. This should be the same software that came on your install disc.

Note: to find out if you have 32 or 64 bit windows in Vista and 7 click on Start then right-click Computer and select properties. A window will come up with that information. If you have XP you would have to go out your way to get 64-bit so if you aren't sure then you have 32-bit.

I have a Microsoft Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 6000 that also has a very short range. The only solution I've found so far is to plug the receiver into a USB extention cord and run the cord toward the mouse.

Microsoft wireless laser keyboard 6000 v2.0 keyboard not working


You have to press the button on the receiver that is directly connected to the computer. While doing this, press the connect button both the mouse and the keyboard. I did this and now my keyboard is working, despite the battery indicator turning itself off a few seconds after I install it.

Hope this solves your problem.
