Mouse can not work


this is usually do to a port going out or the total failure of the mouse.. or if it's a rather old mouse, the ball underneath is too worn to work.

if it's the port, there are 2 kinds, one is a round port (PS/2), you will have to turn off the computer to remove the mouse from this type of port.

if it id the round ps/2 port, you will have to either get a new mouse using usb, or you can try a new ps/2 based mouse. 

REMEMBER you cannot plug in or remove a ps/2 mouse while the computer is still on!

The next port, and most common is the usb port. it's a small rectangle.

You most likely have atleast 4 of these on the back of your computer, and most of the newer computers have 2 on the front, sometimes in a hidden panel.

Sometimes if you are a windows user, windows will set a usb port aside for what normally resides there, and a mouse in a port that usally houses a printer usb plug will make windows not see the mouse sometimes.

Removing a usb port mouse is rather easy, you dont need to turn the computer off to do so.

Before considering replacing a usb mouse, try putting it into another usb port. sometimes this will work. also, see if the lights are working underneath when plugged in. (optic mouse, not ball mouse). 

if you have determined that your mouse is broken, then the next step is to replace it. bestbuy sells mice for about 25-30 dollars.

if you dont mind waiting 3-7 business days, a reputable online retailer like 3btech.net can sell you a mouse for about 15-20 dollars, and 3btech does not charge for shipping.

Computer won't recognize mouse now......


I'm going to assume that your mouse has a USB connection, it may have a stuck flag in the registry. Each time you shut down your computer, the flags should close, when you restart, each device is reinstalled. If you have a stuck flag Windows will think the device is already installed.
If that is the case, shut down and remove the USB mouse. Hook up a PS2 mouse, restart, go into the regestry and remove all the USB mice listed under USB mouse. Save the changes, restart, then remove the PS2 mouse and plug your USB mouse in. Windows should detect new hardware and reinstall it.

The arrow dosnot move (M105-s3041)


Lol. This happened to me about 6 months ago, Toshiba has a program called 'TouchPad' Utillity. Which basically enables you to turn ON/OFF the mouse pad, It's shipped with the operating system, Unfortunately if you do turn it off, The mouse pad won't respond and there is no way you can turn it back on, It took my 12 hours to figure this out,It was frustrating, You will need a mouse, Preferably a USB one, plug this in and go to your icon bar in the bottom right hand corner of your desktop screen and there should be an icon saying 'TOUCHPAD', Right click it, Go up and turn it back on, Then you will be back in business:)

I have a new optical USB mouse but the windows vista on my lap top did not recognise it it sea it but need driver to install it i tried every sing on the lap top to find solution but failed regarding i...


Usually Vista does not need driver to install an USB Mouse.
Try this:
Turn off the laptop, then put the mouse connection. Turn on again. See if now it is working. The mouse should be connected in "off"
If still does not work, try put in other USB port of the laptop. Usually a laptop has at least 2 USB port. Remember to connect it always in "off".

Wireless Mouse


Bud's got it. Remember when pressing the button on the mouse and usb receiver that the mouse has to be brought close to the receiver for them to sync.

Labtec optical mouse


Is this a wireless mouse? If so, plug the USB connector into your computer. The pc should detect it and install the drivers automatically. Then there should be a button on the bottom of the mouse, press it, then press the button on the USB connector. This establishes a connection between the mouse and connector.
