My razer deathadder gaming mouse will not work after doing an update to the mouse. I'm not quite sure if it was a windows update or a mouse update but it will not light up now, only the wheel lights up and windows just says it is an unknown usb device.

Try rolling back the driver within the device manager to the previous driver. then dont take any more microsoft driver updates for it. Microsoft updates are generic in nature and don't always work correctly with high performance accessories such as this.

I have a new iHome Optical travel mouse on my laptop. I can't get it to work.


Did you put in new batteries.

Did you try a different USB port.

Did you go to start button, control panel, windows update, run windows update, if it needs a driver, win update might find it.

Usually windows will use a generic driver for any usb mouse and as soon as you plug it in windows see's it.

It should have come with a disk, maybe there is a driver on it, but rare windows can't find it.

If you try these things and noting, its the mouse, contact the seller or the MFG and ask them for help, send email.

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty

even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

try blowing out all of the dust from your keyboard using a fine air blower from an air compressor making VERY sure there is no MOISTURE in the lines.

click start right click on my computer select properties device manager control scroll to mice and pointing devices you might see a yellow question mark? right update driver

I am having trouble connecting my Kensington Si670m wireless mouse to my lenovo R61i laptop.


Two things that might be able to help you would be to make sure that the OS (Operating System) is either Microsoft Windows 2000 / XP. It may or may not work on Vista.

Also check for the updated drivers for the mouse. Your mouse should have came with a disc, make sure you run that as well.

Message saying alps pointing devive has stopped working, can still move mouse pointer but cant use the scroll function


A possible fix for the Alps problem Your Alps pointer problem is probably driver related. To fix it:
1. Open Windows Explorer
2. Right click on Computer & choose properties
3. Open Device Manager (Admin password may be required)
4. Under Mice & other pointing devices, right click Alps pointing-device & choose Update driver software
5. Choose Search automatically & it will download and install the latest signed driver from the windows repositories & hopefully that will fix that problem.

Mouse quit working


update your drivers once you install them, drivers are always comng out with new updates, to update a driver ---

Open your Control Panel. Click Start, (then pick Settings in 95/98/Me) then Control Panel. Double click the System icon and choose the Device Manager tab. Find the device for which you want to update the driver. Click the plus sign (+) next to the various categories, click on the device you want to update, and then click on “Properties” and the “Driver” tab.
Then click the “Update Driver” button. A dialog box will walk you through the process. Choose “Display a list of drivers ...,” then choose the “Have Disk” button and use the dialog box to find the “driver files” folder you created on your desktop. Choose the “.INF” file in that folder and click OK. The system will update the appropriate driver. If there is more than one .INF file, try each one until you get a successful install. Finally, reboot your machine so that the new driver can take effect.
