I cant get the mouse to connect to my laptop


Desktop or Laptop ?What type of mouse ??...
Enable a Mouse for a Laptop
Without the ability to drag and drop and point and click, a laptop computer is merely a desk ornament.
Most laptops are manufactured with a built-in mouse in the form of a touchpad.
If the touchpad fails or if you just prefer working with a mouse, it is easy to enable a mouse for use with your laptop.

Purchase a mouse that is compatible with your laptop.
You can find compatibility information on the manufacturer's website.
If the mouse is wireless, make sure that the USB receiver is included, or purchase it separately. The mouse will not function without the receiver.
Insert the batteries in the mouse if you are installing a wireless mouse.
The battery compartment is generally located on the bottom of the mouse.


Connect the USB mouse to the USB port on the computer.
If you are using a wireless mouse, connect the USB wireless receiver to the USB port.

Turn the computer off and then on again if you are enabling a standard mouse with a wire.
This will instruct the computer to run the "new hardware" wizard, which will walk you through the installation of the mouse, and your mouse will be enabled.

Turn the wireless mouse over, and locate a small indentation with a button.
You may need to use the tip of a pencil or pen to depress this button.
Simultaneously press the button on the mouse and the small button on the USB receiver.
This will initiate communication between the mouse and the receiver.
Hold the buttons down for about 5 to 10 seconds until the light on the mouse comes on.

Test the connection by moving the mouse.
If the cursor moves, you have successfully enabled the mouse.
If not, check that you have the batteries installed.
Try pressing the buttons independently of one another.
Press the button on the receiver until the light blinks and release it.
Press the button on the bottom of the mouse until the light on the mouse is lit.
This should enable your wireless mouse.

Wireless Mouse to Your Computer & Laptop
Connecting a wireless mouse to your computer is a great way to reduce clutter around your workplace. Also, it is an alternative to using your laptop's directional pad.
Wireless mice work just as well as wired mice for most computing needs.
The only detail that wireless mice lack compared to wired mice is the DPI (dots per inch) and the frequency rate, which is essential to the "fast twitch" movements in gaming.
However, most people do not need highly responsive mice; therefore, wireless mice are perfect for any other computing activity other than gaming.

Insert batteries into your mouse. If your mouse is rechargeable, charge it in the docking station provided with the mouse.
Buy a wireless adapter that works with your mouse.
If your laptop is enabled with wireless technology or Bluetooth, skip to the next step.
Install the drivers for your mouse.
Reboot the computer to apply the changes.
Power on the mouse and let the computer recognize the new hardware.
If you are using a mouse that requires software to run, enable the mouse in the software that is provided to you.

Laptop computers generally have built-in pointing devices such as touch pads that you can use to navigate the operating system on the go.
However, touch pads and pointing sticks are small and generally far from ergonomic.
At home, you might like to connect a full-sized mouse for greater comfort.
Computer mice connect in a variety of ways, and you should be able to find a mouse what works with whatever peripheral ports your laptop has.
As a general rule, any mouse that works with a desktop computer also works with a laptop.Laptops use the convenient touchpad and integrated scroll mouse that allow you to use just your finger to navigate Web pages, documents and open files and programs.
Just like all other hardware, the laptop's integrated touchpad and mouse can experience errors and problems that cause you to lose functionality for a length of time.
Whether the laptop's mouse is not working because of internal errors or conflicts with another device, several "tricks" can work to restore it.

Locate the function "Fn" button on your laptop in the lower left corner of the keyboard.
Look in the keyboard's upper row (the F1 through F12 buttons) for an icon of a touchpad or computer mouse.
This keyboard button acts as the toggle switch to enable and disable the built-in mouse and touchpad function.
Press and hold the "Fn" button together with the mouse icon button.
Look for the disable/enable symbol that briefly displays on your screen.
Slide your finger over the laptop's mouse and attempt to use it as normal.
Press the Windows keyboard key if using Windows 7, type "main.cpl" in the search box and press "Enter."
Press the left arrow key to navigate over to the "Device Settings" tab.
Press the tab key to reach the "Enable" button in this section.
Press "Enter" on your keyboard. Press the tab key to reach the "Disable internal pointing device" check box.
Press the space bar to remove the check mark.
Put your finger on the touchpad, and move the pointer down to the "Apply" button.
Click "Apply" to save the settings. Close the mouse "Properties" box.


Press the keyboard "Windows" logo key to open the "Start Menu."
Press the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate to the "Shut Down" or "Turn Off Computer" menu. Press the up or down arrow key to highlight "Restart."
Press "Enter" to restart your computer and attempt to use the laptop mouse as it should normally function.

Open the "Control Panel."
Go to the "Add and Remove" or "Uninstall" programs section.
Highlight any secondary mouse devices in the list that you have installed for your laptop, such as an external USB mouse.
Select the "Uninstall" option to remove any software and settings associated with this secondary mouse.
Restart your computer and attempt to use the built-in laptop mouse as normal.
Check to see if the mouse is working properly.

Press the keyboard's "Windows" button to open the "Start Menu."
Press the keyboard's arrow keys, "Enter" button and "Tab" to navigate to and open the "Control Panel."
Go to the "Hardware and Sound" section, and press "Enter." Navigate to "Device Manager," and press "Enter" to open it.
Find "Mice and other pointing devices from the list" and open its "Properties" dialog box.
Select the "Driver" tab and choose "Update Driver."
Allow Windows to search the Internet for drivers and to update them automatically.
Restart your computer after the drivers are updated, and use your mouse as normal.

How do you buy a Bluetooth Mouse?


<p>Bluetooth wireless mouse is still a very popular choice, especially for laptop users and travelers. It gives you the freedom of cable and Bluetooth connectivity. See how to buy. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Make sure your computer has a built-in Bluetooth receiver to detect the Bluetooth mouse. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Check if your mouse supports Bluetooth 2.0 or higher technology. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Meet different tracking technologies and differences. A mouse is old-fashioned mechanical mouse, a tracking ball on the bottom. This function allows the rollers inside the mouse to move. A new version of the same technology, optical mouse sensors. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Understanding optical mice. An optical mouse uses a beam of light that is controlled by an optical sensor to detect motion. Unlike the mechanical mouse, which requires little maintenance and no risk breaking parts. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. More information about a laser mouse. It is the most advanced tracking technology and is a progression of optical mouse. Unlike the broad beam of an optical mouse, laser mouse uses a narrow beam of light sharp. For you, this translates into higher accuracy. <br /> <p><br /> <p>6. Consider the number of mouse buttons have. Typically, the two buttons. Some offer more advanced mouse buttons, which can be programmed for specific actions. <br /> <p><br /> <p>7. They prefer a mouse with a scroller. This makes navigating through pages much easier. <br /> <p><br /> <p>8. Consider the size of the mouse. If you are a frequent traveler, choose a little mouse that is easy to carry. <br /> <p><br /> <p>9. Get opinions from online guides such as Epinions or My Simon. <br /> <p><br /> <p>10. Compare prices of your local retailers and online stores. Many online stores offer Bluetooth mouse at a lower cost. <br /> <p><br /> <p>11. Online trust an online store or you can place your order directly to the site of the brand you choose. <br /> <p><br /> <p>12. You can also buy from a local store. <br />

Mouse bluetooth freeze 32 bit 526


Step 1:
Check for weak batteries. Remove the battery cover by pressing down on the cover at the tab, then pulling the cover away. Take out the batteries and replace them with fresh batteries, inserting them according to the markings in the battery compartment. Replace the cover. Test the mouse to see if the problem is resolved. Check for Windows configuration issues. Windows must be configured to use Bluetooth devices in general. Click "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Hardware and Sound" > "Bluetooth Devices". This opens the Bluetooth Devices window. Click the "Options" tab and check the box next to "Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer" if it is not already checked. Click the "OK" button. Test the mouse to see if the problem is resolved. Check for installation issues. Your particular Bluetooth mouse must be properly installed on Windows. If the mouse is not recognized at all by your notebook, connect a wired mouse. Again, click "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Hardware and Sound" > "Bluetooth Devices". Click the "Add" button to start the Bluetooth Device Wizard. Follow the prompts in the wizard. When the wizard finishes, test the mouse to see if the problem is resolved. Check for location issues. The device may be either too close to or too far from your notebook. Move the mouse progressively closer and farther and test to see if the problem is resolved.

Keyboard and mouse not working


On the bottom of the mouse is a tiny little button that says connect or reconnect...press that to finish the connection process. Sometimes that very same little tiny button is on the bottom of the transmitter, look to see and press. You can best push the button with a pen or pencil.
Check to see that your batteries are in correctly also.
I hope this helps and does the trick for you.
Good luck and please leave a rating, thank you kindly...

I have a nx2 nexxtech remote mouse. I replaced the 2 batteries (AAA) and it lights up, but does not work on the laptop. Any ideas what is wrong?


First, put charged batteries into your keyboard and/or mouse. Then, plug the adapter into the USB port. Then, press the big, round button on top of the adapter and the CONNECT button on the bottom of the mouse (not simultaneously). Then, press the big, round button on the adapter, and the connect button on the bottom of the keyboard (not simultaneously). Once the computer is on, click the mouse once, and everything should be working fine. If the mouse and/or keyboard do stop working, then either click the mouse once, try the connection process above again, or change your batteries.

P.S. The connection process is only meant for whichever part is not working (i.e. If the keyboard works, but the mouse doesn't, then only do it for the mouse.)

I got 2 logitech wireless mice in same desk, because I dont have anywhere else to place them, and they interference with each other...How can I change frequencies? Please help Thanks


This is in the logitech knowledge base.

Question: ''When I move my cordless mouse, it moves the cursor on the system next to me. What should I do?''

Answer: ''This is called ''Cross talk'' and is characterized by one cordless device controlling the cursor or keyboard input of another device connected to a different computer. To avoid possible interference, try to keep the distance between systems at least 10 feet. Also, moving the mouse closer or further away to the receiver can also improve transmission and performance. If the above fails, try pressing and holding the ''Connect'' button on the receiver for 10 seconds. This will reset the receiver's connection information and allow you to do a first time connection with the receiver and mouse or keyboard. After holding the Connect button for 10 seconds, then press the Connect/Channel button on the bottom of the mouse to synchronize it with the receiver. If you have a cordless keyboard instead of, or in addition to, a cordless mouse, press the ''Connect'' button of the receiver again, then press the ''Connect/Channel'' button on the Keyboard. Perform these same steps on any other Logitech cordless devices in the area that are experiencing cross talk. Another step that can be tried is to remove the batteries for 15 minutes. Then re-insert them and boot the computer up. It is important that during this time, you do not press the connect button on the receiver or keyboard of the other cordless desktop system.

I could not find anything on mouse crosstalk in the Microsoft knowledge base. Perhaps the problem is not so common for MS mice because of their more limited range.

Buying a new mouse was suggested. This may or may not work if you bought a new Logitech mouse, as it could wind up on the same troublesome frequency. Of course, if you replaced the Logitech mouse with a Microsoft mouse, their limited ranges might eleminate the problem, even if they used the same frequency.
