Microsoft wireless optical mouse frozen

Hi
hope you can help:-/

have been using this mouse for year now without problems. Yesterday, it stopped working. The cursor remains on the screen but mouse just not responding.

I have replaced batteries twice, thinking it might be the problem, but no joy. Consequently, we are unable to access anything on the desktop.

Fortunately I have a laptop which I am able to use

I would be SO grateful if you have any suggestions
kind regards
petra

I have microsoft bluetooth optical mouse 4000 it suddenly stopped connecting to the receiver, as I cannot move mouse anymore


Just to clarify, this is a wireless optical mouse, right? Please try the steps below:

1. Use fresh batteries.
2. Make sure that the mouse is turned on.
3. Check if there's a connect button on the wireless receiver and underneath the mouse. If there is, try holding down the two connect buttons at the same time for five seconds and then release them both.
4. Try moving the mouse.
5. Make sure that there are no possible wireless interference between the wireless receiver and mouse like the base of a cordless phone, cell phone etc.

If same problem occur after doing the steps below, then you may want to contact the manufacturer for RMA. This Microsoft 4000 has a three year limited warranty.

Thank you!

Replaced Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse 2000 doesn't work


I would have suggested opening up your old mouse and cleaning the right click button first.

Generally, wireless devices have a connect button that finds the frequencies of the devices. On the receiver press this button, then press the button on the bottom of your new mouse. the receivers lights will stop flashing once connected.

I've used a microsoft optical deskpro setup for years. My keyboard & mouse both work perfectly with the receiver about 3 feet away on the opposite side of my desk. Neither is directly in front of the receiver and it has not been a problem. You can see the options at the microsoft website. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 3000 not working


Do you have another device to test the batteries in to be sure they are good? Also verify the batteries are inserted properly - if so, it appears the mouse has just quit working.

Microsoft Optical 1.1A Wheel Mouse Optical - USB, PS/2 (D66-00034)


Hi again,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me" and the repeat use of FixYa.

Interesting concern, should be pretty straightforward. Anyways, pls try to:
  • update/re-install the driver from Microsoft Download page;
  • alternately, disable the "Allow the computer to turn off..." in the Power Management tab of the USB Root Hub Properties in your Device Manager.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you again for using FixYa.

Microsoft wireless notebook optical mouse 1024`


I have a Microsoft wireless optical mouse 3000. There is a silver button on the end of the mouse that usually faces you when using the mouse. Press that silver button- while holding the button in, use your fingernail or something to help with gently lifting the main panel on the top part of the mouse. Lift up on the end of the panel that is closest to the silver button. The panel comes entirely off, revealing the inset battery. It took me a while to figure it out since I installed the first battery.. it has lasted over a year. Hope this helps with yours. Have a blessed day!
