My friend has a mouse that won't work. It doesn't move, but if there's something under it, you can click. It's a laptop and her touchpad works, but she's got a dock and when she puts it on the dock, the mouse won't work. I have changed mice, changed USB ports it's plugged into, just restarted the computer without changing the mouse...none of them have helped. Any suggestions?
Well in case of opto-mechanical mouse all u hav to do is open d mouse and just clean d rollers(as d ball moves d rollers also move and that decide d X-Y coefficients) which are clogged with sticky dirt n dust.
In case of optical mouse it's d crystal which is most vulnerable to failure,so after detailed tests procedures change d faulty component,u might require professional guidance.
Also cleaning d lens below the LED will help.
Repairs of optical Mouse is not worth it,considering d obsolute nature of electronic circuits,and d rapid fall n d prices,replacing is d only option for an optical mouse

Put in the batteries Find the battery covers and slides it off. Insert the appropriate batteries. The wireless receiver that plugs into the computer runs off the computer's power and needs no batteries.
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.
Connect the mouse once you have it plugged in. The receiver should have a visible button that is easily push able 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.
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 working very well is about 9 feet (2.7 meters), so keep that in mind.
Test your new mouse.
?·If you plugged into the mouse port, restart your computer manually.

Hello my friend,to customize your mouse settings,click Start, and then click Control Panel,click Printers and Other Hardware and then click Mouse.After that in the Mouse Properties dialog box, click the Wheel tab, increase the number to make your scroll wheel move faster, or decrease the number to make it move slower,then click Apply,click OK and your done.
I think I figured out this problem. It's more of a wearing issue with the constant use of the button. Basically the plastic tab on the internal underside on the mouse is wearing down from continual use. I added a piece of custom cut card stock under the front of the mouse circuit board. This raised it up just a little to compensate for the wear on the button.
Have you tried the Mouse with another computer?
If you did and it worked, my guess would be a driver issue.
If you did and it didn't work there may be a problem with the mouse.
If you haven't the please do so and let me know what your results are so I can try to help you further.
