Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Hi, I am setting up a computer with a Logitech cordless laser mouse. It has 2 AA batteries in it, which I've changed to no avail. It has no connections, and will not work at all. Am I missing something I should have connected to the CPU? Thanks! Carol

    Thank you antiochpc!



    I had NOT plugged the receiver into the USB port, as I didn't know what it was. Yesterday I kept seeing "receiver" in the solution archives, but it is assumed one knows what that is. It is now up and running perfectly. I've never had a cordless mouse til now, and there was no manual with it.



    Thanks again,

    Carol

I assume you've plugged the receiver into the USB port? If so, there is a connect button on the mouse and possibly one on the receiver, depending on the model. If there's one on the receiver, push it (usually you'll need a paperclip or a pen to do so) and then press the one on the mouse. I the receiver lacks this, just press the one on the mouse. This synchronizes the radio frequency between the mouse and the receiver.


Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya. Thank you.

No instruction manual


It's easy. Plug in the usb dongle, plug in the power for the dock, put the mouse on it and let it charge fully and then use it. If you want to use the advanced buttons on it, go to the logitech web site, download the driver for your operating system and install it. At that point you will have a control to set it up in the way you want it to work, but right out of the box it will work like any other mouse.

Can't get acer desktop to recognize logitech cordless mouse


Yes, you need to install the Logitech transmitter for your cordless mouse. The acer transmitter uses a different frequency. You could try pressing the connect button on both the existing transmitter and mouse but that's not likely to work with different manufacturers.

Change batteries in my wireless mouse


There should be a battery compartment on the bottom of your mouse. It might have a small screw holding it in place. Open & remove old battery, replace with fresh battery. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Have logitech cordless mouse, red light is flashing put in new batteries still flashing it is with keyboard S 510


Keep the mouse without batteries for about 2 hours (i can't explain this why, but many times it works), then put the batteries back. if still not working then I don't think there is anything u can do with a mouse.

Logitech LX 710 keyboard and Mouse stopped working. I changed batteries and went through set up procedure and nothing.


Hi,
Are you talking about wireless keyboard and mouse right ! Okay... then Make sure the sensor is plugged in to the system or not. Check that you have replaced the batteries with 4 AA alkaline batteries. Please go through the manual once. If don't have the manual click on the below link or copy the URL and paste it in your web browser.

I cann't figure out how to install battery on my logitech optical mouse. can any one help me pls ?


There should be a small sliding cover on the bottom of the mouse, it should have a couple of small arrows indicating which way to slide the cover. You will need either AA or AAA batteries.

I got 2 logitech wireless mice in same desk, because I dont have anywhere else to place them, and they interference with each other...How can I change frequencies? Please help Thanks


This is in the logitech knowledge base.

Question: ''When I move my cordless mouse, it moves the cursor on the system next to me. What should I do?''

Answer: ''This is called ''Cross talk'' and is characterized by one cordless device controlling the cursor or keyboard input of another device connected to a different computer. To avoid possible interference, try to keep the distance between systems at least 10 feet. Also, moving the mouse closer or further away to the receiver can also improve transmission and performance. If the above fails, try pressing and holding the ''Connect'' button on the receiver for 10 seconds. This will reset the receiver's connection information and allow you to do a first time connection with the receiver and mouse or keyboard. After holding the Connect button for 10 seconds, then press the Connect/Channel button on the bottom of the mouse to synchronize it with the receiver. If you have a cordless keyboard instead of, or in addition to, a cordless mouse, press the ''Connect'' button of the receiver again, then press the ''Connect/Channel'' button on the Keyboard. Perform these same steps on any other Logitech cordless devices in the area that are experiencing cross talk. Another step that can be tried is to remove the batteries for 15 minutes. Then re-insert them and boot the computer up. It is important that during this time, you do not press the connect button on the receiver or keyboard of the other cordless desktop system.

I could not find anything on mouse crosstalk in the Microsoft knowledge base. Perhaps the problem is not so common for MS mice because of their more limited range.

Buying a new mouse was suggested. This may or may not work if you bought a new Logitech mouse, as it could wind up on the same troublesome frequency. Of course, if you replaced the Logitech mouse with a Microsoft mouse, their limited ranges might eleminate the problem, even if they used the same frequency.
