With the older ps2 mouse like the one in your picture what usually goes wrong with them is the ball on the bottom gets dirty. Disconnect the mouse from your computer when your computer is turned off. Flip the mouse over and you will see a grey rubber ball in the center. On the outer edges is a black ring. That ring can be removed by turning it counter clock wise and once removed the ball will fall out in to your hand when you tip the mouse back over. Take the ball to your kitchen sink and wash it really good with warm soap and water. Then dry it off with a rag making sure that there is no dirt left on the ball rub it hard to make sure all the dirt is removed. Then flip your mouse over so the opening is facing up at you. Place the ring back in place and lock it down by turning it clock wise until it wont move anymore. This should get your mouse back to moving correctly around your screen. Plug it back in to your computer turn your computer back on again and test the mouse to see if it scrolls correctly across the screen again.

If the buttons are no longer working when you use them to click on something then my suggestion is purchase a new mouse. You can find a PS2 style mouse on Ebay they have a ton of those for sale and they are very cheap to purchase today.

I hope this helps you out.

USB mouse not working?

Ok don't worry. Sounds like you need to Unplug the mouse for a sec then re-plug it back in to reset it. If the mouse is wireless then try replacing the batteries. Cause a wireless mouse can still turn on if batteries are weak but won't have enough power to connect to the receiver connect to the desktop/laptop. Try doing so and let me know if this solves your issue.

How to fix a trackpad that quit working as well as any external mouse

Have you considered doing a "System Restore"? You could just restore back just previous to the date when the mal-function began. I bet that would fix it, and you don't loose most personal stuff.

Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore

If this has helped, please take a sec to rate me. Thanks!

Page up button not working

Unfortunately it sounds like you're keyboard is malfunctioning and the only permanent fix is to replace the keyboard. In the mean time, since you are unable to do so, I would suggest using the touch pad to manipulate the scroll bar for the faster scrolling. For more control you could use a USB mouse with the laptop which would give you a scroll wheel. (I personally use a Wireless Mouse with my laptop because I find touch pads don't react they way I would like my mouse to use)

Onn wrieless mouse is not working

Try replacing the batteries in the mouse. Sometimes the light will still come out of the bottom of the mouse - but the wireless signal is no good.

Also - after you replace the batteries in the mouse, click the sync button on the USB part that plugs into your computer, and then immediatly click the sync button on the bottom of the mouse.

That should do it!

I simply don't know how to install batteries in my G7-300N wireless mouse and also want to know that where is its USB?

It is a wireless mouse and does not have any USB on it.
It should have a Multi Link Reciever with it.
It uses 2 AAA batteries and they go on the bottom of the mouse.

The right click on the mouse do not function

Don't know what OS you are using; but if it is a windows you can go to control panel, click on the mouse icon and open the program that controls the mouse. There you can set the buttons and wheel to do as you want them to. Also, you can go to the hardware tab and there is a troubleshoot button toward the bottom of the window. You may want to try a simple fix and just unplug the mouse from the computer and replug it, may need to restart computer, and see if the computer recognizes the mouse.

My wireless Logitech mouse stopped performing. I changed batteries. the red light comes on even before I changed the battery. I have had it about 3 months. Wal Mart told me to look on the back of mouse. ...

So much for Wal-Mart tech support.
If your mouse is not working, first check the batteries to be sure they are good.
You wireless mouse has a USB "antenna" or sending unit. It may have a button on it that says "connect." If so, push it.
The mouse itself has a little button on the bottom that says "connect."
Push that one next. It should now work.
If it doesn't, switch USB ports and try again.
And no, we don't charge for this answer.
