Question about Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer

1 Answer

Keyboard stopped working after installing mouse

After mouse died, I installed a brand new wireless Intellimouse Explorer 2.0 and receiver along with software 6.1. Now my keyboard doesn't work. I plug in the old receiver and the keyboard works again. What must I do to get the keyboard working with new mouse and receiver? (I've pressed the connect buttons on both the receiver and keyboard.)

    As a workaround, I've since used an additional USB port to run the receiver for the keyboard. So now I'm using two receivers to run each of the keyboard and mouse.

You may need to "pair" the mouse with the receiver dongle. Look for a button on each. Press button on the dongle first, then on the mouse.

Do I need a "receiver" for this keyboard and mouse or will it work if I just install the software?


Hi,

If both the keyboard and the mouse are wireless then yes you will need a receiver for them.
The receiver for the mouse maybe integrated into the keyboard if its a wired one, so yes, install the software for them.

When the install is complete don't forget to active the mouse using the connect button on the keyboard and the connect button that should be underneath the mouse.



Regards.

Couldn't find the answer to the right click mouse button not working.


Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it to Reset/Connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly.
If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud

Unable to connect to the synaptics pointing device driver


I am assuming that the mouse has batteries installed in it and the CD was used to install the software program for the mouse.
Did you try Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it to Reset/Connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly.
If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud

Wireless Intellimouse Explorer Not Working.


Normal 0 Normal 0 Recheck the magnifier to see if its set right.
Go to Control Panel and click on the Mouse icon. Then the mouse properties will appear showing the mouse buttons. In the Left column is the button settings. The bottom one is the Right Button, which is set for Magnify. Whenever you hit the Right Side button the magnifier will turn on. To turn it off, hit the Right Side Button and off it goes. You can change any of the button settings by clicking on the drop down.
Hope this helps. Bud
