there is a reset button on the bottom of the mouse.

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!
Goo0dness, Had this myself just last week. Fortunately I had the old keyboard and mouse and plugged it in to get access. I deleted the wireless keyboard from device manager. rebooted the machine, quickly changed the mouse and keyboard back to the wireless one and it all came back on. saved me buying a new one. Hope this works for you.
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
Then proceed with the instructions in the Quick Start Guide which can be found from this webpage Microsoft Hardware
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.
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.
there are three reset buttons one on the bottom of the mouse and one on your keyboard's
backside and there is a reset button on the receiver that plugs into the USB press all at once untill lights flash and try to get it to connect again. or try to 1- use "Reset" (in you case it might be "Connect") buttons on your keyboard's backside and also on receiver. 2-use "Reset" (in you case it might be "Connect") buttons on your mous's backside and also on receiver.
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.
Press the Receiver button (and the lights will start
Then if the Keyboard isn't working, press the small RESET/CONNECT
button on the back of the board to connect the keyboard to the
Hope this helps. Bud
