Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Mouse Receiver from the USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When the program asks you to connect the Mouse Receiver to the USB port, do so and it should work.
Hope this helps. Bud

- Try another USB port to plug-in the mouse.
- Make sure that the mouse is physically fine. Its USB plug is clean. You may test the mouse on some other computer.

Will not connect..its not in sync with my pc


Turn the switch to the "On" position, located underneath your mouse if your mouse has a switch.

Restart your computer to have a fresh starting point for troubleshooting. Sometimes, just restarting your computer can resolve issues you have with your HP wireless mouse.

Move your HP mouse about 39 inches away from your receiver.

Unplug your USB receiver, if you have one, and wait about 10 seconds.

Replug the USB receiver into another USB port, closer to your mouse if possible, then resynchronize your mouse and receiver.

Press and hold the connect button on your receiver, while plugged in, until you see the LED light flash.

Hold and press the connect button underneath your mouse until the LED light on the receiver stops flashing.

Check to make certain the button under your mouse does not get stuck in the depressed position and releases. Also, make certain you complete this resynchronizing process in 60 seconds, or else you must start over. Your mouse will now have a new identification number from resyncing.

Unplug the USB receiver, wait 10 seconds, then replug the receiver firmly into the USB slot, pushing it in entirely. You will notice the receiver's activity light turn on, then off in the next five seconds.

Press the connect button underneath your mouse until you see the activity light turn on again on the USB receiver.

Check to make certain the mouse connect button does not remain depressed when you release it.

My mouse is scrolling to some corner of the screen when i am not touching it and when I touch it moves in the opposite direction, is there some way to reset the settings.

First try a different mouse and see if you have the same problem. Have you tried unplugging and replugging the mouse in? If you have the problem isolated to the mouse just replace it as a replacement only costs 10$ at any store like walmart or office store.
Thank you,

Wireless mouse does not work after changing always has in the past The Dell computer and mouse is probably 8 years old but has always worked.

Try moving the mouse receivers usb plug in to another port. Unplug any new devices and restart computer. Then replug in any new usb devices.
If still not working.......
Look at Office Depot and other office stores for a replacement wireless mouse. I have seen them as low a $9.99 on up. You might even want to upgrade and get a wireless mouse and keyboard set.

There isn't connection between the wireless mouse and laptop

First, reload the softwear than came with the mouse. Then, check the cable connections from the receiver to your laptop. If USB, then unplug and replug, if PS-2, unplug, replug, make sure the cord(s) are seated fully in the laptop. Then change the battery in the mouse, push the connect button on the mouse, and you should be back in business. I have Logitech wireless keyboard and laptop and have not had any problems after reinstalling and checking batteries and initiating the reconnect button. You will see a small window on your screen saying the mouse is connected on Channel 1 or 2. I hope this will help you.
