Try fresh battery and if one on the pack doesn't work, try another --make sure the batteries are NEW and scrape contacts in mouse with emery board a bit and blow out sand --contacts can oxidize.

There could be several other factors influencing the behaviour of your optical mouse. Have you tried cleaning the lens underneath and also used a contrasting mouse mat on your table?
The range of this mouse is very limited (3ft) and you might have some interference from other devices around (like cordless phone, wireless devices and so on)

Check the following 2 sites for more troubleshooting ideas. Also the microsoft site referenced below provides some software you can download to diagnose better.

I have microsoft bluetooth optical mouse 4000 it suddenly stopped connecting to the receiver, as I cannot move mouse anymore


Just to clarify, this is a wireless optical mouse, right? Please try the steps below:

1. Use fresh batteries.
2. Make sure that the mouse is turned on.
3. Check if there's a connect button on the wireless receiver and underneath the mouse. If there is, try holding down the two connect buttons at the same time for five seconds and then release them both.
4. Try moving the mouse.
5. Make sure that there are no possible wireless interference between the wireless receiver and mouse like the base of a cordless phone, cell phone etc.

If same problem occur after doing the steps below, then you may want to contact the manufacturer for RMA. This Microsoft 4000 has a three year limited warranty.

Thank you!

Mouse stopped working (Microsoft optical notebook 3000 mouse)


YOur mouse needs to be paired with the transceiver. THere is normally a button on the part which goes inot the laptop. Press it once then flip the mouse and press its button once. It will then work hopefully :)

My arrow on monitor froze all troubleshooting says mouse OK


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

Hi again,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me" and the repeat use of FixYa.

Interesting concern, should be pretty straightforward. Anyways, pls try to:
  • update/re-install the driver from Microsoft Download page;
  • alternately, disable the "Allow the computer to turn off..." in the Power Management tab of the USB Root Hub Properties in your Device Manager.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you again for using FixYa.

Had the same problem. There are 2 reset/ connect buttons: 1 on the mouse, and 1 on the usb device. Press the button on the usb device, and it should start right up. Good luck.
