My mouse works for about 20 minutes then it stops working. I have to reboot my computer to get it to come back on again. I've changed the mouse to another port and it still does the same thing.

First Check if there are anything clogging the ports, ie: Dust, dirt, boogers..

Do you have a DOS based program with mouse functionality? Like Partition Magic...

That way you can rule out drivers or conflicts in windows being the problem.

Update the drivers for the mouse...had this problem my self before...

Can't get mouse to work when i hook it up. put rec. in mouse port ant it won't light up. the tranmitter will but the rec won't.

First replace the batteries in the mouse and insure they are inserted correctly.
Next make sure the mouse switch (if it has one) is on.
The mouse and receiver should be close enough and without obstructions to work. Once they work you can experiment with where to put the receiver as the mouse will stop working or get sluggish if the receiver is not close enough.
Next press the connect buttons on both the receiver (if it has one) and the mouse within 30 seconds of each other.
Allow about a minute to see if they connect up.
I am assuming it is not a software problem.

Any solution for apple wireless mouse not able to scroll-happens frequently-I do all the usual things, ie: cleaning scroll ball with a toothbrush, alcohol, etc. Works for a while, sometimes an hour, day,...

if you're having issues with a "mighty mouse" let me tell you that no matter how well you clean it, the problem will continue. If you can't get a free replacement from Apple, the best experience for us at my office has been to move to Logitech bluetooth mice. Logitech V270 Cordless Optical Bluetooth Mouse works great and you have all the functions you need like scrolling, right and left click, etc.

Keyboard and Mouse stopped working.

Ants in the motherboard, Are they on Drugs ?
The keypad, connects to the motherboard via an additional ribbon cable usually, so it,s not always a motherboard issue.
i think they saw you coming, and just trying to make a fast buck.
If the externals working fine, carry on with them and save your money for another laptop.
When you buy a new 1, take it to whoever told you there were ants, in the motherboard, and bounce it straight off the back of his head.

Faulty mouse

You need to check your settings by going to Start-----Control Panel------Mouse. Make sure everything is normal. If its all good from there, try a different mouse. The software installation should have nothing to do with your mouse function.
