I bought a mini mouse last year and found that my laptop could not support the software. I now have a new laptop, but can't find the paperwork on how to use the mouse. I had successfully installed it, according to my computer. but don't know what to do next. I have a usb cord, mouse and two other attachments that connect to the usb cord. One is labeled Wirelsss receiver and one is labled usb serial hub. the mouse does not respond to either Is it battery run? If so, where do the batteries go and what kind do I need?

1. press the black link button on your puck or key that connects to the PC usb port.
2. turn the only switch on the bottom to ON (to the right)
3. press the link button on your mouse on the underside.
4. double left click your mouse to make sure it will wake up and run
5. check it on another USB port
6. look for damaged pins in your usb port on the laptop
I've got a Microsoft wireless Intellimouse and the batteries in that last for months - and it's on all the time. My wife bought a no-name mini wireless mouse and found the batteries last a couple of weeks.
The difference? My mouse takes two AA batteries, hers takes one AAA. So if you change mice(?) look for one that takes two AA batteries and stay away from any that don't.
Try disconnecting the Mouse Receiver from the
USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When
the program asks you to connect the MouseReceiver to the USB
port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud
Well typically with wireless mice you must press both bottons on both the mouse and the connecter...then after pressing both buttons restart you computer...you computer might not recognize a new piece of hardware right after being turned on. Also make sure there isn't software that needs to be installed there normally is with usb wireless mice. If this does not work please post a comment and I will help you futher. If this does help please be kind and return the favor of giving me a fixya! rating have a good day!
Do not use a mouse pad with this mini mouse. Battery will last much longer. I have had this mini mouse for about a year with no problems. Recently, though, after changing batteries, I found that the USB connector fails on and off. I have to pull out the USB connection and put it back in again. However, I am having to do this several times a day.
If your mouse manufacturer does not supply a driver for Vista you are pretty much out of luck for now. Vista is radically different from previous Windows operating systems and some hardware manufacturers are having a hard time adapting to it. If you have to have the mouse I would suggest you switch back to Windows XP till working drivers are released.
