Nice mouse.

I've had some problems with wireless mice in the past, so I will just list the causes and see if one fits the bill for you.

1. Did you move the USB transceiver (this is the device that communicates with the mouse) from one USB port to another? If so, uninstall the mouse and reinstall it using the CD that came with your mouse.

2. Do you have any other wireless devices in the vicinity of your mouse that use a radio frequency rather than infrared, such as a wireless keyboard? If so, you may have a conflict.

3. Were you provided instructions on resetting the RF channel and/or ID code of the mouse? There is a small chance that the channels/codes between the mouse and the transceiver were scrambled and you may need to sync them again.

Hope one of these helps!

I cant get the mouse to connect to my laptop


Desktop or Laptop ?What type of mouse ??...
Enable a Mouse for a Laptop
Without the ability to drag and drop and point and click, a laptop computer is merely a desk ornament.
Most laptops are manufactured with a built-in mouse in the form of a touchpad.
If the touchpad fails or if you just prefer working with a mouse, it is easy to enable a mouse for use with your laptop.

Purchase a mouse that is compatible with your laptop.
You can find compatibility information on the manufacturer's website.
If the mouse is wireless, make sure that the USB receiver is included, or purchase it separately. The mouse will not function without the receiver.
Insert the batteries in the mouse if you are installing a wireless mouse.
The battery compartment is generally located on the bottom of the mouse.


Connect the USB mouse to the USB port on the computer.
If you are using a wireless mouse, connect the USB wireless receiver to the USB port.

Turn the computer off and then on again if you are enabling a standard mouse with a wire.
This will instruct the computer to run the "new hardware" wizard, which will walk you through the installation of the mouse, and your mouse will be enabled.

Turn the wireless mouse over, and locate a small indentation with a button.
You may need to use the tip of a pencil or pen to depress this button.
Simultaneously press the button on the mouse and the small button on the USB receiver.
This will initiate communication between the mouse and the receiver.
Hold the buttons down for about 5 to 10 seconds until the light on the mouse comes on.

Test the connection by moving the mouse.
If the cursor moves, you have successfully enabled the mouse.
If not, check that you have the batteries installed.
Try pressing the buttons independently of one another.
Press the button on the receiver until the light blinks and release it.
Press the button on the bottom of the mouse until the light on the mouse is lit.
This should enable your wireless mouse.

Wireless Mouse to Your Computer & Laptop
Connecting a wireless mouse to your computer is a great way to reduce clutter around your workplace. Also, it is an alternative to using your laptop's directional pad.
Wireless mice work just as well as wired mice for most computing needs.
The only detail that wireless mice lack compared to wired mice is the DPI (dots per inch) and the frequency rate, which is essential to the "fast twitch" movements in gaming.
However, most people do not need highly responsive mice; therefore, wireless mice are perfect for any other computing activity other than gaming.

Insert batteries into your mouse. If your mouse is rechargeable, charge it in the docking station provided with the mouse.
Buy a wireless adapter that works with your mouse.
If your laptop is enabled with wireless technology or Bluetooth, skip to the next step.
Install the drivers for your mouse.
Reboot the computer to apply the changes.
Power on the mouse and let the computer recognize the new hardware.
If you are using a mouse that requires software to run, enable the mouse in the software that is provided to you.

Laptop computers generally have built-in pointing devices such as touch pads that you can use to navigate the operating system on the go.
However, touch pads and pointing sticks are small and generally far from ergonomic.
At home, you might like to connect a full-sized mouse for greater comfort.
Computer mice connect in a variety of ways, and you should be able to find a mouse what works with whatever peripheral ports your laptop has.
As a general rule, any mouse that works with a desktop computer also works with a laptop.Laptops use the convenient touchpad and integrated scroll mouse that allow you to use just your finger to navigate Web pages, documents and open files and programs.
Just like all other hardware, the laptop's integrated touchpad and mouse can experience errors and problems that cause you to lose functionality for a length of time.
Whether the laptop's mouse is not working because of internal errors or conflicts with another device, several "tricks" can work to restore it.

Locate the function "Fn" button on your laptop in the lower left corner of the keyboard.
Look in the keyboard's upper row (the F1 through F12 buttons) for an icon of a touchpad or computer mouse.
This keyboard button acts as the toggle switch to enable and disable the built-in mouse and touchpad function.
Press and hold the "Fn" button together with the mouse icon button.
Look for the disable/enable symbol that briefly displays on your screen.
Slide your finger over the laptop's mouse and attempt to use it as normal.
Press the Windows keyboard key if using Windows 7, type "main.cpl" in the search box and press "Enter."
Press the left arrow key to navigate over to the "Device Settings" tab.
Press the tab key to reach the "Enable" button in this section.
Press "Enter" on your keyboard. Press the tab key to reach the "Disable internal pointing device" check box.
Press the space bar to remove the check mark.
Put your finger on the touchpad, and move the pointer down to the "Apply" button.
Click "Apply" to save the settings. Close the mouse "Properties" box.


Press the keyboard "Windows" logo key to open the "Start Menu."
Press the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate to the "Shut Down" or "Turn Off Computer" menu. Press the up or down arrow key to highlight "Restart."
Press "Enter" to restart your computer and attempt to use the laptop mouse as it should normally function.

Open the "Control Panel."
Go to the "Add and Remove" or "Uninstall" programs section.
Highlight any secondary mouse devices in the list that you have installed for your laptop, such as an external USB mouse.
Select the "Uninstall" option to remove any software and settings associated with this secondary mouse.
Restart your computer and attempt to use the built-in laptop mouse as normal.
Check to see if the mouse is working properly.

Press the keyboard's "Windows" button to open the "Start Menu."
Press the keyboard's arrow keys, "Enter" button and "Tab" to navigate to and open the "Control Panel."
Go to the "Hardware and Sound" section, and press "Enter." Navigate to "Device Manager," and press "Enter" to open it.
Find "Mice and other pointing devices from the list" and open its "Properties" dialog box.
Select the "Driver" tab and choose "Update Driver."
Allow Windows to search the Internet for drivers and to update them automatically.
Restart your computer after the drivers are updated, and use your mouse as normal.

I have a Medion wireless mouse and the mouse pointer keeps freezing intermittently. The operating system is windows vista home premium.


Make sure the mouse batteries are fully charged.

Also make sure the mouse is not too far away from the base / cradle and there is nothing blocking the sensor on the front of the mouse cradle.

Make sure all the cables are fully inserted. Check both ends of the power adapter plug going into the back of the mouse cradle and the plugs leading to the back of the computer.

Try cleaning the little red LED light under the mouse with a QTip to remove any dust.

Finally try using a different mouse pad. Some work better than others with certain brands of wireless mice.

Also make sure there is not another wireless mouse being used in close proximity. The two can often interfere with each other.

Good luck and please comment back and RATE if this was helpful.

The microsoft wireless mouse stopped working after a power failure. I get a message that says the USB device is not there. But I cannot navigate my computer w/o the mouse


The Microsoft wireless mouse comes with a wireless receiver, right? Before you do anything, the first thing that you can try is to replace the batteries with fresh ones.

If same problem occur, try to connect the wireless receiver into different USB ports of the computer. Then check if your wireless receiver and mouse has a connect button. If it does have connect buttons, briefly press the connect button on the receiver, then hold down the connect button on the mouse for 5 seconds. Then release the connect buttons.

If you get the same problem, hold down both connect buttons (receiver and mouse) at the same time for 5 seconds.

Last, try to connect the wireless receiver into different computer. If you get the same problem, send the receiver and mouse to the manufacturer for repair.

Thank you and good luck!

Wrirless keyboard


The mouse or keyboard does not work at all
If your wireless mouse or keyboard is not working properly, check the following:
  1. The mouse is designed to enter a suspend mode after 20 minutes of inactivity. Try to reactivate the mouse by clicking the left mouse button.
  2. If the underside of the mouse has an on/off switch, make sure to set the switch to the "On" position.
  3. Restarting the computer may resolve the problem, at least temporarily, so that other troubleshooting steps can be applied.
  4. Make sure that the keyboard and the mouse are within 100 centimeters (39 inches) of the receiver. If the receiver is attached to a cord, position it so that it is on the same level surface.
  5. Verify that the batteries are correctly installed in the keyboard and mouse. If possible, use a fresh set of alkaline batteries.
  6. If the receiver is a USB receiver, unplug it, wait for five seconds, and then plug it back in. Wait about five more seconds and then test the mouse and keyboard again.
  7. Reset the keyboard and mouse connections :
Note: The following connection sequence must be completed within 60 seconds.
With the receiver plugged in, press and hold the Connect button on the receiver until the activity LED flashes.
Note: Some HP computers have receivers built into the front of the computer; such as TouchSmart 700 Series PCs and Digital Entertainment Centers. Look for a small Connect button built into the case. If you have a TouchSmart 500 or 800 Series PC, the receiver plugs into a USB port on the underside of the case and does not have a Connect button - skip this step.

I've charged my Targus wireless mouse (PAKP003U) and plugged in the USB adapter thing, making sure the light is on. The mouse is on also, but it is still not working.


Your windows computer must install the drivers for the wireless adapter for your mouse when you plugged it in. Given that the light is on the adapter I'm assuming it works.

There should be a small button on the mouse and the adapter somewhere. Press the button with a paperclip or something small enough to get to it and the light should start flashing. Now press the button on the mouse. Both lights should be on solid.

This connects both the adapter and mouse on the same wireless channel to work together.

Good Luck!

I have a nx2 nexxtech remote mouse. I replaced the 2 batteries (AAA) and it lights up, but does not work on the laptop. Any ideas what is wrong?


First, put charged batteries into your keyboard and/or mouse. Then, plug the adapter into the USB port. Then, press the big, round button on top of the adapter and the CONNECT button on the bottom of the mouse (not simultaneously). Then, press the big, round button on the adapter, and the connect button on the bottom of the keyboard (not simultaneously). Once the computer is on, click the mouse once, and everything should be working fine. If the mouse and/or keyboard do stop working, then either click the mouse once, try the connection process above again, or change your batteries.

P.S. The connection process is only meant for whichever part is not working (i.e. If the keyboard works, but the mouse doesn't, then only do it for the mouse.)

Replaced battery in mouse, although connection lights are flashing & I have reset, neithet mouse or keyboard working


Hi
Make sure that everything is plugged in properly and charged up. If you are sure that the mouse and keyboard have charge then try using them. If they do not work then try using a standard wired keyboard/mouse. If these work then you know that something is wrong with the wireless ones. You may want to try and get a replacement through the warranty's they might have.

If you can provide any more information, I might be able to help you further.
Thanks
Philip

I'm hooking up my Memorex wireless keyboard and mouse. I hooked up the two pieces coming off the wireless receptor to the computer and now I can't get the mouse and keyboard to work. Do I press the button...


There should be a connect button on both the receiver unit that is plugged into the usb port, and on each device (Mouse, and Keyboard) you will have to press all of these again to reconnect the devices to the computer.
