Mouse problem... What exactly IS a USB mouse? Never had a problem with a mouse before so I don't know too much about the different kinds. And where do I get one? I am currently updating on my computer with the hope that it will help some. Checked the mouse driver, etc. and it says the driver hasnt been updated since 2001.

USB stands for Universal Serial Bus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB) , its a standard port that most computers have today.
Here's a good link:

My thought from what you have told me is that the port where you plug in your mouse is broken. Try other mice, because you may have tried a broken mouse.
If the port is broken, your best bet is to go with a USB mouse.

Need the usb adopter for this mouse where can I get it


What kind of mouse? Assuming it's a wireless mouse and it's something that was around before 5 or so years ago you may be able to buy the same exact one from ebay or craigslist but it has the be the exact same mouse.

Might just be worth buying a new mouse, make sure you ask and get one that will be universal. Logitech and microsoft both have some wireless mice that if you lose the adapter you can just get a new adapter and it will work. Most mice are pretty cheap though, sometimes it's more cost effective to just buy a new mouse, any basic ones are $10-20 if that.

I have an acer wireless mouse model mg-0766 and i cant get it to connect to my hp pavilion laptop. the batteries are fine. the dongle light doesnt come on but when i plug it in it does download the dr


Hi friend , make sure you have install the proper driver of it, if you don't have the driver or you don't know what is the exact driver, then my suggestion is you can install windows 7 operating system then i am sure it will work, or you can check it out by connecting a different computer where windows 7 is installed. make sure the usb port is working fine also.

Ths problem occurs because of usb drvier conflict issue with your usb wireless dongle driver. For that go to device manager uninstall all usb drivers then it will automatic install all driver.

Also try different usb ports of computer for connecting the usb wireless dongle of keyboard. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

My DEll mouse stops working when it feel like it. have to shut computer off and turn back on for mouse to light and work for awhile again. What"s wrong?wrong


Try your mouse in different USB ports, if it works well in the other ports then you know your original port is bad. If the mouse still acts up, then go ahead and try another usb mouse in the computer. If the 2nd mouse is working then you know the original mouse is bad. If the 2nd mouse is not working then you know that the usb ports on your motherboard are bad.

M trying to fix my retractable mouse. do you have any diagram showing how the insides of the retractable mechanism looks like. much thanks!


Optical mouse from inside: http://www.gadgetrivia.com/photos/o/56422-best_optical_mouse.jpg (this isn't a retractable mouse, but the inside looks exactly the same, only the cord this different which doesn't matter in this situation).
Here are instructions for optical mouse repair: http://www.thenetguruz.com/hardware/diy-optical-mouse-repair/
But if your mouse doesn't work first plug the mouse in the USB slot and check the laser beam under the mouse - if there is no light, the mouse is dead, and you should return it to the seller for replacement. (Such a thin cable of the mouse is very vulnerable and might break easily. More over I find many negative reviews about this rectractable mouse - so if your seller offers to replace it - ask for a different model or test it with your laptop right in the shop before bringing it home.)
2) Here is a solution that already worked for another user, but was very complicated: http://forums.toshiba.com/t5/Keyboards-Touchpads/USB-mouse-not-recognized-drivers-can-t-be-installed/m-p/23526
3) Or alternatively download and install a free driver updater software, e.g. http://www.innovative-sol.com/drivermax/index.htm - let it scan and update all your missing drivers - it may fix USB general problems if this causes also the mouse problems.

My case logic optical mouse will not link up


Is this a wired or wireless mouse?

If this is a wired mouse, try connecting it into different USB port or different computer so that you would know if there's a problem with the USB ports or with the computer or with the mouse.

If this is wireless, try the following:

1. Replace the batteries of the mouse.
2. Make sure that the mouse is turned ON.
3. Try connecting the USB wireless adapter of the mouse into different USB ports.
4. Connect also the adapter into different computer.
5. Make sure that there's no interference between the adapter and the mouse such as wireless phones, cell phones and other wireless devices.

Wireless mouse, cordless phones and cellphones are all running at 2.4Ghz frequency, so if there's a wireless device that's running on the same wireless freq, then it would interfere with the mouse that would cause the mouse not to work.

If same problem occurs after checking everything, then contact the manufacturer of the mouse for RMA (repair).

Have a great day!

Logiteck cordless click mouse not working


You need a starting point. Need to find out if it is the mouse or the usb port. You stated you already checked the batteries and switch under the mouse and tried different USB ports. There are no other things to try. So I would guess the mouse is defective and bring it back. The only way to find that if it is the mouse or the usb port is to try a mouse that you know works. If it works then we know it is the mouse and you can return it, if it does not work then you know its the usb port.
