For any wireless mouse you need also a receiver to transfer the signal from the mouse to the PC. If you don't have the receiving unit, you cannot do anything with your mouse. If you do have the receivign unit, mostly plugging it in makes windows recognise it and it will work.

Some tips incase all is complete but it doesnot work:
check the batteries of the mouse and if neccesary replace or charge them.
Uponstarting your PC go into BIOS (mostly bt pressing DEL or a function key, it will be indicated when starting) and enable USB mouse. Save and exit BIOS, PC will restart and your USB wireless mouse should work.

Mouse not working wireless only with pc plug in. Mouse is Cherry Ergo Shark-R


On my Logitech wireless mouse, when the battery runs low, it stops working. Also if your keyboard is wireless the batteries in that could affect the operation of the mouse. Plus, on another brand wireless mouse the signal from the usb port adaptore for the mouse was being blocked because i didn't have the mouse clear and to far away. Hope these tips help.

I recently bought a Compaq Wireless Desktop w/Optical Mouse (Gry/Sil) at a yard sale and did not recieve the instalition cd where can i download the program at online so i can use it on my computer


As long as you have the wireless reciever and the mouse, and a fresh pair of batteries theres no reason why it should not work. Its simply a plug and play device.

In fact, I wouldnt be surprised at all if Logitech manufactures their mice for Compaq and sticks the Compaq name on it instead.

HP 3 button wireless optical mouse


Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud
