Question about Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000

1 Answer

I am using a Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000. I have had it for two to three years. It has been working properly up until now but now I find the right click does not work. As you know you need the right click feature to do many things such as .zip files into a folder (which is a feature I must use often). Any suggestions? I haven't changed the batteries, but the last time the batteries needed to be replaced they did not effect only the right click. The other features seem to be working fine??? Cathy

Unfortunately it sounds like your mouse has finally failed. If every function works fine but right click, and you have changed the batteries, then it indicates the mouse has started to fail. There is no way to disable right clicking, because as you mentioned it is a very important feature on any computer, for any and all programs. Since it is over a year old I believe the warranty has expired, but you can try contacting microsoft, be very nice to them, and see if they will help you out with a free one :) 1-800-360-7561 is their number.

Personally I recommend you just replace it with something inexpensive and similar like:

For $15 or so, it's probably not worth all the hassle to try and get Microsoft to replace it. But just to reiterate, the mouse has definitely failed, there is nothing you can do beyond replace it.

Pairing code for Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000


Not really a code, just first press button on top of your receiver and then the button on the bottom of the mouse. The receiver LED should stay green when they are connected. If this does not happen check that you are using IntelliPoint Mouse Software. See more:

press connect on the wireless device...let go and then within 5 seconds press the button on the bottom of the keyboard. Repeat the same steps for the mouse whther its working or not. The problem usually is that the keyboard and mouse are on the same "Wireless Channel" and only resyncing them puts them on a seperate channel, hope this helps.
