Here is step by step with good info.. http://logitech-en-ap.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/12155/section/troubleshoot/crid/428/lt_product_id/5484/tabs/1,3,2,5/cl/au,en/kw/

Maybe you don't need this, but if it still won't work after this, then return it as defective.

Tip

Safety first when using a laser pointer


Although a laser pointer may not look it, they can be very dangerous. While they can be a very effective tool for drawing your audience's attention to things in your presentations, using them for other purposes can cause a lot of damage. Following a few simple safety tips will ensure that no one will get hurt while you're presenting.

- Never point your laser pointer at an other person, especially not the face. Just because a laser pointer may not be dangerous when pointed at the skin of another person it is still a good practice to never use it to point at people.

- Never look directly into the laser beam, even if you are sure that the strength of the laser is not high. Even a low powered beam can cause some damage to the eyes. Eye damage can be permanent so it shouldn't be treated lightly.

- Check for reflective surfaces before you present with a laser pointer. If the beam is reflected off an other surface such as a mirror or glass can be just as dangerous as pointing it directly into some one's eyes.

- There is something about a laser pointer that makes people act like children. I have been in many college lectures where a lecturer will use a laser pointer to make emphasis in class and students will ask to play with the pointer. Under no circumstance should you allow someone else to use your laser pointer, especially in a classroom full of people.

If you feel uneasy about using a laser pointer in your presentation you might want to look into using your computer mouse as a laser pointer. Microsoft powerpoint has a feature that will allow you to use the mouse pointer as a laser pointer on the screen. That by far will be the safest laser pointer.

Mouse doesn't work. touchpad works fine. lenovo G470


LOL, go into the mouse and touch pad properties and make sure you don't have the mouse disabled or blocked.

Does the point work from the touchpad when you have the usb mouse plugged in? If not you have the mouse pointer disabled. There might be a button at the top of the touch pad in the middle that you press to toggle the mouse pointer. There could also be a set of keystrokes you hit to toggle the mouse. For example I just worked on one last week where you had to Press and Hold the Alt key then hit the F6 key. Function Key F6 had the icon of a finger inside a square which represented the touchpad.

Click Start/Control Panel and look at the mouse and touchpad properties. There may be settings where you can disable one if the other is present.

How can I change my cursor?


Hi, I was wondering what Operating System you're using. But if you have Windows 7 (this could be similar to Windows Vista), all you have to do is just click the "start button or windows button" on your keyboard.

You will see that there is a search box, please type in "mouse," then hit the "ENTER" button on your keyboard.
eibraz_7.jpg


You will be directed to the Mouse Properties window, you need to select on the "Pointers" tab, highlight "Normal Select," and click on "Browse."
eibraz_8.jpg


You will now see the available mouse pointers on your system. You may select the one you want and hit "Open."

You will be routed back to the "Pointers tab" and you'll now see that on the Normal Select, the mouse pointer you chose is now showing. To make the changes take effect, hit on "APPLY," then "OK."

M305 Logitech Wireless mouse with nano stopped working on Laptop


This is a difficult one to answer so lets go through it.
You have a M305 thatrefuses to work and your OS says is returning an error.
You've quite rightly checked the Logitech site and found out that it appears to be a common fault as many people are reporting the same issue.
Logitech have not resolved the issue.

All the above are valid reason for retun to the vendor for replacement/refund.

However you WANT to replace a M305 (a model with know issues) with ANOTHER M305 which will have the same issues as Logitech have not resolved the problem.

I will have to think long and hard before giving a definative reply.
