Question about GE Optical Mini Wireless Mouse 98793

1 Answer

I bought a GE ergonomic wireless mini mouse. It worked fine for a couple of weeks, but no longer works. It still light up, but could then batteries be worn out? Or, is there some other problem?

SOURCE: GE Mini mouse not working

Try going to the website and search troubleshooting. Download any available drivers. Most big companies (not GE) have the drivers stored somewhere in the device, so it gets installed. 
If you cannot do anything, contact the company via phone or mail. Find the details on the site.

SOURCE: optical wireless mini mouse 98763 feature #9 is

I had all the same problems listed in fixit and found that all it took was placing all NEW batteries in the mouse.
Press the blue light button on the USB and the little black reset button on the bottom of the mouse at the same time. Worked good from there on.

SOURCE: My new GE 98812 ergonomic wireless mini mouse

on the bottom of the GE wireless mouse there is a connect button make sure to push it one time then on the usb there is a connect circle hold it as if you were going to pinch it sounds dumb but I was just having the same problem and I read one of the solution fixes and it said to push connect button on back of mouse and also push it on the usb where it says connect even though the one that you push on the usb stick isn't a button but it is sensed once held with pointer finger and thumb hope this better describes it to fix it

I have a ge 98563 ergonomic wireless mini mouse and my laptop wont recognize it


I have had no problems with my compaq laptop and the mini mouse. It recognized it even after OS downgrade to XP. The reset buttons on the mouse and the transceiver need to be activated or reset when sitting idle for a while. Once you get them both "blinking" it works great. Good mouse for the price... Your laptop should recognize it. Just check the reset and make sure the lites are on and communicating.

Hello my GE ergonomic wireless mini mouse #98564, connects with my computer sometimes and not others. Currently it will not connect, it has new batteries, dings when the card is inserted into port, but...


I have been fighting with several of these GE Wireless Mice. Pressing the connect buttons on the mouse and USB receiver would not re-connect the mouse. As some ohere posting have pointed out, that little white circle on the usb plug shows where to squeeze to trigger the receiver to re-connect. When you've squeezed correctly, the red LED in the USB pug starts flashing brightly - not a dim flicker. You are supposed to then press the connect buttom under the mouse. Immediately the flashing LED on the receiver should go off, and your mouse should be ready to go. Each time you move the mouse, the same LED in the USB plug should flicker to show activity.

I have tried all this so many times without luck. Even replaced the mouse batteries several times - from the same pack.

Here is my 'FIX'. I think this mouse is very tight on the voltage it needs from the batteries. You need absolutely brand new, full power, good shape batteries. Bateries that look OK in another device, might not work in this mouse.

If you have a test meter and know how to use it, find a couple of batteries that are giving at least 1.6v each - more if possible. Pop these in, do the connect process above, and there is a good chance it will connect up fine.

Good luck.

98811 mouse wont work


The GE 98811 ergonomic Wireless mini mouse is a HID compliant mouse you will need to change the setting to use this mouse. This is what I would suggest:
Go to device manager
Go to the unknown device
Manually pick a driver
Mice and other pointing devices
***Change to a HID compliant mouse***
Then press the connect buttons on both pieces of hardware and the mouse should work
Hope this helps, it took me over two hours to get the mouse working. Very frustrating!!
