We had the same problem and just found this solution, we don't know how long it will work for!

hey - i think i actually found the answer.
there is a reset button on the bottom of the mouse.
and there is a reset button on the receiver that plugs into the USB. click them both and vuualla! - it works again....
we'll see how long this lasts.
(most blogs tell users to just exchange the set, it's poorly designed)
good luck -

How do you replace battery for a microsoft wireless mobile mouse 3000

I'm not sure about your exact model, but on my microsoft wireless mouse (model 1023) there is a silver button on the front that you push to release the plastic piece on top (push the button and hook the top plastic piece with your fingernail and lift up). There will be a battery compartment for 2 AA batteries. If there is no button release, look on the bottom of the mouse for a button or release flange. They are replaceable, so just investigate and play with it until you get it to open up. Good luck, and hope this works!

Microsoft wireless keyboard 700 v2-0 not working

Your keyboard MS 700 v2.0 needs a USB receiver to work. They are pert of set. You may also have a wireless mouse MS-700 that is also part of this set.
1. Do you have the receiver ? This has a USB connector that must plugged in to your PC's USB port
2. Are the batteries in your keyboard dead ? If so change them for fresh ones

Note the light on the receiver only flashes when you press the 'connect' button. At all other times it is normally out. There usually no lights on the keyboard. You should not need extra drivers as they part of the OS if you are using Windows XP or 7.

Optical mouse no longer works

I doubt the problem is the battery, and you do NOT have to press the Connect button each time you use the mouse - it will connect all by itself if it can. The Connect button is only used to re-establish connection if for some reason it cannot connect automatically.

I have this same mouse and it has worked beautifully for two years now EXCEPT for one problem: most of the time, the mouse does not turn on when the receiver is removed from the receptacle on the bottom of the mouse. There is a tiny little switch built into that receptacle, along the side wall of the receptacle not far from the light, so that it gets pressed when the receiver is inside the receptacle. I have to wiggle this little switch (gently!) by hand a few times until the light comes on. From that point, the mouse will work fine until the receiver is placed back in the receptacle.

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.

Microsoft wireless mouse 700 works, slows, then stops

Seems like new batteries did the trick. Should start simple.

But I am not totally convinced. I will keep an eye on it.

When you say you pressed the connect buttons on both the keyboard and mouse, do you mean you pressed the connect button on the receiver, and then you pressed the connect buttons on the mouse and keyboard? If not, then that's what you have to do. The 30 seconds of blinking on the receiver is normal, as it gives you time to find and press the buttons on the mouse and keyboard.

I hope this helps, and good luck!
