How to Fix a Wireless Mouse

Check your wireless connection. If you are using a wireless adapter or USB linking device, ensure that everything is plugged in properly. The best way to do this is to unplug the device and then plug it back in, making sure everything fits snugly.

Try to re-sync your mouse with your computer/adapter. If your computer came with wireless networking capabilities (such as Bluetooth) and your mouse uses this signal to communicate with the computer, go to your computer's control panel and turn off the network for a few minutes. Then reboot the network and see if the connection to your mouse has been restored. If you are using a wireless adapter, go to the wireless utility that your computer uses to manage the wireless mouse (this can usually be found in the "programs" section) and repeat the above process.

Look at the bottom of the mouse. If your wireless mouse has a trackball, try removing the cover and cleaning the individual wheels on the inside of the mouse with a Q-tip. If you are using an optical mouse, then try cleaning the bottom of the lens with a soft tissue and a frugal amount of glass cleaner.

Ensure that any drivers needed for the mouse are still installed. Although it is unlikely, the drivers that facilitate communication between your mouse and computer may have been accidentally corrupted or erased. Try visiting the mouse manufacturer's website to download new drivers.

Also, try testing the new mouse on a different (64 bit) system.

Note: If the above procedures do not resolve your mouse issue, or suggestions made by Alphanumeric; Your next step would be a complete System Recovery. Or purchase another mouse.

I just received this wireless mouse today from Amazon.com. Works great.

Remember REALLY cheap is not always better. LOL And stay away from ebay crooks! Google the item your looking for. Then find the lowest price from a reputable retailer like Amazon.com. Which has great service and one of the best return polices. Try the mouse I suggested. I'm using it right now. And if you don't like it... call Amazon and you can send it back for free. Just tell them it didn't work with your computer. Good luck on Friday the 13TH.
