    ive heard 2 suggestions of pressing the synch button on the device AND the receiver - problem is, I cant seem to find any reset button on the receiver! Are you sure there is one (also no Green light - bit concerned about that also) - but windows installed it ok as mouse device. ALSO (!) in 'mouse mode' nothing works, not even the laser!

    Have brand new Microsoft Presenter 3000, have tried to set this up on 2 different pc's; 1. Vista 2. XP pro. Nothing. Tried to sync both. Nothing. But the laser pointer works.

Did you press the right button on the remote? To 'sync' the sender and reciever, and thus start it working, you've got to turn the handheld OVER and press the mysterious little button in the middle at the same time as the button on the USB stick. Also helps if you have them right next to each other when you do this. You should see a green light on the USB stick, and the laser pointer should work on the handpiece if the batteries are good. Mine was working fine for heaps of presentations then suddenly stopped one day and only the laser pointer would work. Batteries were fine, as is the common story. Then I found out that if you turn the presenter over and press the 'reset' button in the middle simultaneously with the USB reciever stick, the two 'sync' and it starts working again, hey presto. I've always found it a breeze to use once I figured this out. If that doesn't work take it back, you need a new one.

Just bought one too.. At first I was shocked as nothing was working, except for the laser. Microsoft has NO info! I did some research online, and found that I had to press some sort of button, which I could not lockate on the reciever.. Nor did I see any green light. Yet, I was aware of some sort of piece of plastic resembling a button at the back of the receiver.. I made the sigh of the cross and opened up teh receiver.. The first thing that fell was a tiny Surface-mount switch. I plugged the receiver back in the USB port (receiver being without casing) and temorarily mounted the switch in place, and pressed the switch.
I finally saw the green light!! See, that was the problem. Working perfectly. Now I need to just solder teh switch back 2 place.

I have microsoft wireless mobile mouse 3000, the usb itself works but the mouse however doesnt even when i change new batteries, i tried reset the mouse but the lighting part appears

There are several different methods in resolving this issue. Before you perform these methods, make sure that the battery of your cordless mouse is fresh. Then, try this first method..
Method 1: Resynchronize your device with the receiver loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To resynchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, follow these steps.
Note When you synchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, put the device near the receiver and put any other wireless keyboards and mouse at least 6 feet away.
  1. Press the button on the receiver, and then verify that the light on the receiver starts to blink.

    Note Some newer Microsoft devices are permanently bound to their receiver and cannot be reset. If your device does not have a button, skip to Method 2.
  2. If a dialog box appears on the screen in several seconds, follow the instructions that appear on the screen. Otherwise, go to the next step.
  3. Press and release the Connect Channel button on the bottom of the mouse or the keyboard.
  4. Check the green light on the receiver. A steady green light means the synchronization was successful. If the problem persists, try steps 1 through 4 again.
  5. For the Wireless Notebook mouse: This issue can occur if the micro-switch on the bottom of the mouse is not released. Use a pin or a pen to try to release the button if it is depressed.
The following example shows the buttons to push to synchronize a wireless hardware device

Method 2: Install the latest software loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Download and install the latest Microsoft IntelliPoint and/or IntelliType software. For more information, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

I hope these works for you. Should you need the other methods, kindly reply for follow up. Good Luck!
