Re: Q : How come my optical mouse cannot detect by...
I had the same problem several times, the light basicaly means that there is power reaching it. Try reinstal ur usb drivers. If nothing, unplug it and look into the part of the plug that goes into the computer. I alway had problems with those little pins bending or breaking. If one was bent I would get a pair of pliars and gently straighten it. If it were missing i would attempt soldering a new 1 on (the latter only worked once). However this can distroy equipment and it would b advisable to contact profesionals

the battery in the mouse makes the red light come on, not the operating system.
Look in Device manager,find the mouse, uninstall the drivers, scan for new devices, re-install the drivers.
Otherwise look for new drivers on manufacturers site.
try to plug into every usb slot... see if your mouse can still work or not... but i recommend you to bring that mouse and claim for it warranty.... ps; if you plug your mouse into the PS/2 port, u need to restart your pc. i hope this will help you.
Do you mean your computer cannot detect your mouse?
have you checked if the mouse is inserted properly in the slot?
what are you using?a optical mouse or ps2 mouse?
if you are using a optical mouse,you will know if your mouse is working by
Plugging your mouse to your computer , if the mouse led turns on it means it is working.
if the LED light doesnt turn on it means your mouse is broken.
Hope i help, Please rate my solution.
That is a Bluetooth Mouse. Your computer MUST have a bluetooth adapter or capability (Usually a laptop). You will use the Bluetooth control panel (not the add hardware wizard) to search for this device.
just to be sure, make sure you have new batteries in the mouse. Then go ahead and unplug the usb adapter for that mouse and then plug it back in and see if windows detects it properly.
If it does see if it works then, if it still doesn't work then the mouse is bad and would need to be replaced. Also if windows detects it but can't find the drivers, you'll need to use the disc to install the software for it.
Do you access the internet? Go to Control Panel->Add Remove Programs and remove this mouse. Reboot. Then install the mouse drivers again and after a reboot attach the mouse. Allow Windows to detect the mouse and loadup its drivers.
go to start>>control panel>>add and remove porgrams.
uninstall all of the Logitech software related to the optical mouse.
restart the computer, plug in the mouse usb, the windows OS should automatically detected the mouse.
Windows OS has logitech mouse driver buldin. you don't need additiona; software.
Uninstall the Software Driver then restart Windows. Windows Will re - detect the mouse and you will have to reinstall the Driver software for the wireless mouse. Or after uninstalling the Drivers, Remove the USB receiver and reisntall the software first then plug in the receiver then restart Windows. Check the battery for the mouse as well.
