Re: OPTICAL MOUSE FACING GARBAGE CAN IF IT DOESN'T WORK...
It sounds like the mouse needs repair but if you could get same mouse or another optical mouse and see if it does the same make sure the area you are using it on is clean and the sensor has direct contact with mouse the model of optical keyboard and mouse i use is a4 tec model the model youv'e got does not last as long the mouse lots of problems with the micro swich buttons after a while they go.
if same happens on new mouse then operating system needs re-installing.

Similar problem which I resolved today. I have a hp wireless mouse model no. 5189URF. I bought this in hp online in April 2009. It needs 2 x AA Alkaline batteries. Steps I did to resolve. 1. Removed battery cover. 2. Removed batteries below which 2 screws exist. 3. Remove 2 screws and remove the top casing of mouse. 4. You can see 2 very small square push button corresponding to left and right clicks in mouse. 5. try to press the left button and make sure its free. The issue seem to be that this button becomes rusty internally and lost contact. Therefore clicks are not recognized. You may need to press it repeatedly and also with a slight thrust circumferentially. 6. You can test your mouse in WIndows Help & support option linked with HP hardware diagnostics tool.
I had the same problem till I discovered there are two buttons (not just one) you have to push to re-link the mouse and the USB receiver. Plug the little receiver in, push the tiny "connect" circle on the receiver (which is actually a button I guess), then wait for the red light to start blinking. Then press the little link button on the bottom of the mouse.
Hi, To activate the mouse press the connect button on the receiver
and look underneath the mouse for the connect button and press that. All you have to do then is right click on the mouse to activate it.
I would have suggested opening up your old mouse and cleaning the right click button first.
Generally, wireless devices have a connect button that finds the frequencies of the devices. On the receiver press this button, then press the button on the bottom of your new mouse. the receivers lights will stop flashing once connected.
stupid question but have you tried replacing the batteries? it does honestly sound like its got power issues which are usually just that. give that a shot with some fresh batteries and re-synch the units (by pressing the button on the reciever then on the mouse).
