Re: MS Notebook Wireless Mouse 6000
The part that goes into the USB port is the mouse receiver. If it has a button on it, press it and then tuen your mouse over and press the button on the bottom of your mouse. This is the reset/connect button. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Try the mouse on another computer. Since it's a microsoft product it should install automatically just fine. It'll either work or it won't If it doesn't call Microsoft. The mouse has a warranty and MS will replace it. I was in a similar situation with a MS mouse and they sent me a new device. I did not have to send the bad device in and I got the replacement in a couple of days.
I have a miscrosoft wireless laser mouse 6000, and it also stopped working
on my laptop. I changed the battery, still no workie. I tested the
battery in another device, and it was good. I moved the mouse to
another computer, and it did not work. The light on the usb connector
was lit. [No changes at all to my laptop.]. It seemed like there was
no power to the mouse, and I looked at the contacts inside the mouse.
The contact just inside the mouse's opening for the battery appeared to be bent down
(away from the contact on the battery tray). So, I pulled it up a little
so it would connect when the battery drawer closed, and (after tweaking
it a couple of times), it finally worked!
Go to Control Panel and click on the Mouse icon. Then
the mouse properties will appear showing the mouse buttons. Put the pointer on the left button and then go to the drop down and make sure the buttoon is set properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

If you take the batteries out there is a screw in there. unscrew and open (not easy) with flat knife in the edges wiggling.
attach and touch all the inside wires. I have had the same problem and it is an internal connector problem. Opening and closing aint easy and will take a little patience but it will work.
