Take a look if the driver is installed.
I'm assuming you're using a PC with Windows....
Then click on the mouse icon, highlight the mouse and click on properties.
There will be a driver tab at the top. Take a look see if the device is working properly, you may need to re-install the driver
Hope this helps

Connecting a Mouse with a Wireless Receiver.
1 Plug in your mouse's receiver. The receiver should fit into one of your computer's USB ports. You can typically find USB ports, which are thin, rectangular slots, on the sides of laptops and on the front of desktops' CPU boxes.
Plugging in the receiver before turning on the mouse will allow your computer to install any drivers or software needed to use the mouse.
Make sure that your mouse has batteries. To do so, you'll typically flip the mouse over and remove a tray on the bottom, though some mice instead have their batteries in a compartment in the back of the mouse.
If you haven't used the mouse in several months, consider replacing the batteries even if they were new when you inserted them.
Some mice, such as the Apple Magic Mouse 2, require charging instead of new batteries.
3 Turn on your mouse. This typically involves manipulating a button on the bottom of the mouse, though you may need to look for the On/Off switch on the side of the mouse.
If you can't find the On/Off button, consult your mouse's manual.
4 Press your mouse's "Connect" button. This button's location will vary based on your mouse's developer, but you'll usually be able to find this button either between the two mouse buttons or on the mouse's side.
Some mice come listed as "plug and play", meaning that you don't need to manually connect them or download any software.
5 Move your mouse around. Once you see the cursor begin to move on-screen, your mouse is connected.
If your mouse doesn't start moving, try turning it off and then back on. If applicable, you may also want to change the USB port into which the receiver is plugged.

Try putting the mouse in another USB port, or even better try another mouse. You might need to let it "install" the mouse first, this can take a minute or so when you boot up, so all you need to do is turn the PC on with the new mouse plugged in and leave it for a while, then try to use it again.
If the keyboard isn't working either, then it sounds like the Operating System is a bit broken! contact me and i'll try to help you fix it.
prior mouses were cable connection required to acheive functionalities. For example, the mouse had to be connedted to the computer by the cable connection, and a software prorgam installed to attain functions. Recent computer mouses are wireless operate. For example, the mouse only requires batteries in to device, and a separate device connected to the computer called a wireless mouse adapter. Usually the wireless mouse should capture the network devices signals least requiring a program installed. Observe the mouse to ascertain that is cabled or wireless networked.
Hi, my cursor had frozen on my screen after my grand daughter pressing something. After trying everything I decided to take it to a local computer shop, it was fixed in seconds. He held the arrow tab(below the caps lock tab) and then pressed F9 it worked!!
Hope this will fix your problem
Even though it does not make sense, if you are using a wireless keyboard that is part of a combo pack (mouse included) sometimes (some brands) you have to plug in all cords on the keyboard/mouse receiver.
