A friend gave me his cordless mouse and receiver. I plugged it in but it does not work. Without the instructions, I don't know how to get it to work. Do I need to load a driver. I appreciate whatever instructions you can give me to make it work.

Plug in the bluetooth detection USB into the PC and the device will be detected and installed. Now the mouse must have the battery in the unit so that it will communicate to the port and work just like your corded mouse.
There's a couple of things you can check: 1. Check that there are good batteries in the mouse. 2. Check that the connection on the receiver to the computer is good. Re-seat it (unplug it and plug it back in) to be sure. 3. check the synchronization of the mouse to the receiver. Push the button on the bottom of the mouse and the button on the receiver and see if that helps.
If not, then shut the machine down, and start it up without the mouse receiver attached, then plug it in when the login screen or "welcome" screen comes up. it might take a minute or two to sense that it's there, but that should be the final test. I have not had a single broken logitech mouse, and have usually given them to a friend when I upgraded to a newer, better one. If the steps I outlines don't work, then think about replacing it. THere are decent sets now including the MK300 series which I'm typing on now that are economical and have decent range and functions.
When you plug the receiver into the computer, what happens? Does Windows see the device? If it does not then the device may be defective. Most cordless receivers plug into USB ports. Try different USB ports.
The mouse is not supposed to go off when the computer is turned off. But it does have three modes so that it can recognize the power it needs to use: in use mode, temporary not in use mode, and long-term or overnight not in use modes. The red light should flicker in the second mode and should dim in the third mode. If you want to save batteries though, you can keep taking them out.
First I'd reinstall the CD software that came with the Keyboard and mouse. Then I'd try the following.
Press the Receiver button (and the lights will start

Also check to see if you have enough memory to run all these functions.
Hope this helps. Bud
you don't need any drivers as windows sees it as soon as the usb is plugged in. . it not unusual for these mice to flake out and stutter and refuse to be seen wireless. mine died a horrible death right in the middle of a kill.
Make sure the batteries are good.
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
