Microsoft Wireless Receiver/Mouse - changing the frequency doesn't help

I have the Wireless Desktop Reciever 3.1 and so do two other people in the office. Yesterday one of the others did something that gave his mouse precedence over the other two of us. Changing the frequency on the receiver didn't help. What can we do?

Hi, I look after an office with 10 Microsoft setups. They tend to jump to another receiver after a battery change. The best way, and boring way, is to try starting only one machine. confirm the mouse and keyboard are working, then switch the next one on and repeat.
We have bought logitek keyboards for 2 of the users. These do not interfere with the Microsoft one, but sometime with each other! 
Answer- go wired ;-)

I have a Microsoft Wireless Desktop Receiver 3.1 unit which works both my keyboard and Wireless Laser Mouse 5000. My mouse is not working and I've changed the batteries 3 times. Can I buy a replacement...


I have the same system. Mouse can be ordered, but not easily. Make sure mouse is not working.... i almost made tour same mistake. In my case, the mouse plug (from computer to wireless receiver) had become unhooked. All i could see is that mouse was communicating with wireless receiver but appeared to be frozen. If you can reset receiving channel, and see that receiver acknowledges presence of mouse, you may have my same problem. Also, if you can see that the laser light is working, mouse is probably ok, and batteries are good.

Replaced Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2000 doesn't work


I would have suggested opening up your old mouse and cleaning the right click button first.

Generally, wireless devices have a connect button that finds the frequencies of the devices. On the receiver press this button, then press the button on the bottom of your new mouse. the receivers lights will stop flashing once connected.

I don't think the wenger swiss spyder wireless mouse is compatable with the Microsoft wireless receiver. I think you will have to use the spyder reciever for the mouse and the Microsoft receiver for the keyboard.

It means, your batteries are dead so need to be replaced on keyboard once you replace those the you got to turn it on and once lights comes up then you to to press wireless button for 5 seconds.
once it starts blinking then you got to press wireless button of receiver (bluetooth stack) and once it blinks then your keyboard should be detected automatically.

please post back if any thing changes and vote all answers.

Good Luck.

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

Microsoft wireless notebook optical mouse 3000 Doesnt seem to work?


Okay, a coworker had this problem and it was a fairly easy fix, first, plug the USB reciever into a direct USB port, then pess the connect button on the underside of the mouse, when the red light starts blinking let go and then press it and hold, and at the SAME TIME press and hold the connect button on the receiver until both the receiver light and the mouse light turn on steadily, and voila!

Wireless keyboard and mouse cross interference


Try changing the frequencies of the signals or standards of the devices so that they work in different channels.
