1. Put in the batteries Find the battery cover and slide it off. Insert the appropriate batteries. The wireless receiver that plugs into the computer runs off the computer's power and needs no batteries.

2. Plug in the receiver to the computer. Usually the receiver will plug into the USB port, but some plug into the mouse port. If all of your USB ports are filled, see if the mouse came with a USB adapter. The adapter fits into the mouse port. Be careful not to accidentally force the mouse adapter into the keyboard port.

3. Connect the mouse once you have it plugged in. The receiver should have a visible button that is easily pushable by the average human finger. The mouse will usually have a very small hole with a button inside it that can only be pushed by something like a pencil or paper clip. Push both buttons at the same time with the receiver and the mouse relatively close to each other for about 5 seconds or more.

4. Position the receiver in a place that isn't far away from the mouse. Depending on where you are, you can place it on the monitor, on the tower, on the back of your laptop (if you are installing the mouse to your laptop) or on the desk. The furthest a wireless mouse can get away from the receiver without not working very well is about 9 feet (2.7 meters), so keep that in mind.

5. Test your new mouse.
- If you plugged into the mouse port, restart your computer manually.
- If you plugged it into the USB port you may begin using it.
- When the cursor moves when you move the mouse, you have connected the mouse properly. If the cursor doesn't move, try repositioning the receiver. If it still doesn't work, you may need to restart your computer (if you haven't already) or reconnect everything.

Hope this help. Goodluck!

Logitech wireless laser mouse not working my computer


If your computer has Windows XP or later your computer should automatically install generic drivers for it so that it works. So if that's the case and it still doesn't work then try changing the battery in the mouse, or plug the wireless adapter for the mouse in a different USB port.

Have you checked your battery on the mouse? I would pressume that it uses battery since its wireless. Does it have a on/off switch? Because for it to work you need to turn it on. Can you post the exact model and specs of your wireless mouse? For us to better understand what were dealing with. Reply back. Good Day.

Would like advise on how to install a wireless mouse on a laptop


Wireless mice come with a USB dongle and a wireless mouse. Install batteries in the mouse and plug in the USB dongle into 1 of your USB ports on your laptop while in Windows. Windows will detect the mouse and automatically install the software needed to communicate with the mouse. If Windows doesn't install this device automatically, try installing the drivers included on the driver CD.

I cannot move the mouse on screen- what do I do?


Make sure there is nothing plugged into any USB ports, restart the computer (or manually shut it down by pressing the button) and turn it back on. If that doesn't fix it, try plugging in a USB wireless (or wired) mouse and see if that works.

How to install wirless mouse


It depends on the wireless technology used by the mouse.

1. Infrared
If your mouse used Infrared for communicating with your PC, you will have to place an Infrared receiver on your desk, in line with the mouse you want to install. You will definitely have to install the drivers supplied with the mouse/Infrared receiver.

2. Bluetooth
If the mouse uses Bluetooth, first you either will have to install a Bluetooth dongle on your PC/Laptop (if it doesn't have Bluetooth integrated) or activate the Bluetooth on your PC/Laptop. Then, using the Bluetooth software supplied with the dongle or PC/Laptop, search for new devices and choose the mouse to pair with. You may have to install the software provided with the mouse for if to work.

Tried to plug in wireless mouse would not come on, does the touch pad need to be off both of the usb ports not working, seems strange that both would not work at the same time.


Hello,

First ensure that the usb is the appropriate dungle for the mouse, not just any usb will work for it.

When you get the the wireless mouse it comes with a dungle that you are to connect to the laptop.

If the mouse falls or hit a hard object, it might get damaged and wont work.

Try to use a new wireless mouse on your laptop to see if it works. if it does, then the fault is from your former mouse.

Try to use the old mouse on another system, if it does not work, then you have to replace the mouse.

Take care

Spectra wireless optical mouse KT4092


I have the same mouse. What you have to do is first power off the mouse, then push on the green-lit button on the transmitter that you plug into your USB. (It doesn't feel too much like a button but you will see that it starts flashing.) Hold it down for about 15 seconds. Then power on your mouse and you will see that it should start working. I was frustrated too but got mine working.
