Does that message pop up when you plug it into every available USB port? Are your batteries charged? Is the mouse recognized on another computer?
This could mean that your USB port is dead or dying (unlikely) or that your mouse adapter is fried.
Try it on another computer, if you get the same message, it's off to the store for you!

Why is my Perixx PERIMICE-712B Mouse only working intermittently after only 7 months?


Because it is a no name mouse with little or no warranty. You're lucky it worked as long as it did.

USB Mouse works, keyboard does not


You will need to update the drivers on the computer for the docking station. It will be the windows seven drivers or lack of them that is causing a failure to remap the usb ports that the wireless dongle is plugged into.

How do i connect my wireless i.t.works optical mouse model MWO03 to my eee laptop windows 7?


Follow these steps :
1.
Check to see if your laptop supports wireless technology (Bluetooth, 802.11 or other). If it doesn't, you will need a wireless receiver. If it does, verify that your laptop is compatible with your wireless mouse, which could use either Bluetooth technology or a radio signal.
2.
Unpack your mouse and open its battery compartment. The wireless mouse won't receive any power from the laptop, making batteries necessary.
3.
Add new batteries to the compartment. Make sure that the + battery end is inserted into the + niche in the compartment.
4.
Place the mouse where it is easy to use and least stressful on your fingers.
5.
Place your wireless receiver appropriately if your laptop doesn't support wireless technology. The receiver should be kept at least 8 inches away from the laptop or any other object that would cause any interference.
6.
Place the wireless receiver anywhere from 8 inches to 6 feet from the mouse.
7.
Insert the driver CD into your laptop and follow the instructions to install the software for running the mouse.
8.
Connect your receiver to the laptop by plugging in the mouse's USB connector to the USB port of the laptop. If you do not have a free USB port, simply use an external USB hub for more ports.
