make sure you have the right mouse selected click start control panel mouse hardware you will see which mouse is selected in xp

I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop

then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 >>arrow heads then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7

in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar

for the double click this will be in the folder options follow previous to get to control panel items
click start control panel navigate folder options tick in the double click to open circle

hope this helps

Hmm... couple of things you can here; I don't know if this is a new printer or one you've had for some time.

If the printer is one you've had previously try doing a system restore. This usually fixes about 95% of computer problems concerning peripherals. click start... mouse over all programs... mouse over accessories... mouse over system tools... click on system restore... select a date when you know the printer was functioning correctly. If you can't find system restore that way just click on help and support... go to the search bar and type system restore.

If the printer is new: completely uninstall the printer and disconnect it. After you uninstall it using the add/remove programs. click on start... click run... type c://program files. You will see a message that says these files are hidden. Just click the the link that says show the contents of this folder. once you have done that all the folders containing software that you installed will appear. look through there and see if you can find the folder for your printer should say hp laser jet or something to that effect. highlight that folder only and hit the delete button. then look to the left of that screen and you will see a link that allows you to hide those contents again. click that if you wish, there is no harm in leaving the folder contents viewable. restart your computer and re-install the software... Make sure you follow the installation instructions to the T.

Hope this helps

After rebooting my cpu my mouse stopped working. My cpu does not recognize my mouse? The mouse works because i tried it on a different cpu. what can be causing this?


Did you try to reboot?
Do you have an optical mouse? (if yes: is the red light on?
(Then the mouse is recognized and you must configure your mouse options)
Did you try to connect your USB mouse to another connector?
Or if PS2 connector: Turn of the pc and connect the mouse and power on.
Did you install a new driver? (then uninstall this driver)
Try looking for the most recent mouse driver on the manufacturer site.

Can only click, not moving???


is it a usb mouse?
if so try unpluging the mouse and pluging it back in. is it optical or is there a little ball on the bottom?
if its a ball you can clean it. its probally dirty.
you can unscrew the bottom and blow the dust off. just be careful to put it back together properly.
if it is a optical (laser) you might just want to replace it i just got a new one at walmart for $7.00 they are cheap but they work

No laser


You shouldn't be able to see the laser, it wont glow like a optical mouse will. there should be buttons on the mouse and receiver that will connect the 2 devices and make them work together try pressing each for 5 seconds.

Mikomi optical mouse lights up but does not work


Uninstall the Software Driver then restart Windows. Windows Will re - detect the mouse and you will have to reinstall the Driver software for the wireless mouse. Or after uninstalling the Drivers, Remove the USB receiver and reisntall the software first then plug in the receiver then restart Windows. Check the battery for the mouse as well.

Hi Mary,

Just uninstalling the software won't help. You have to see whether or not your PC detects the mouse on startup. If not, go to the System Properties in the control panel and look for any conflict signs in the Hardware List. If so, you will see a yellow/red triangle with an Exclamation mark in it. This indicates that a hardware peripheral is either conflicting or not installed correctly or drivers missing. Highlight that by a single mouseclick and delete that & close the wondow. Now go to Add New Hardware in the control panel & try autodetecting the mouse. If your OS asks for drivers CD simply insert the Windows CD in your driver & direct its path to autodetect the .inf file and autoinstall the default drivers.

As far as I feel, an opticla mouse such as the one you have mentioned should automatically be installed if you are using Windows XP.

Anyway, try the above and let me know.
