Help with mouse problems

All of a sudden I can't use my mouse on my desktop. Nothing happens when I click on my icons, I can't move them, and it takes forever just to set the cursor to write something, say, in the search window.... This started happening when I did the upgrade to 7/64 home premium.
Does anyone know how to fix this? I'm going crazy! I have tons of work to do, please???

Hello Welcome to the SevenForums labecs. This just a regular mouse or is it usb, or wireless? First thing comes to my mind is wireless with dead batteries? Need more info from you. Good luck with this.

Can't use mouse at all

Thank you for the response. I'm using a wireless Logitech Revolution. It's weird... it started fine and a while later it just stopped working, same with the wireless keyboard. First time I had to restart for them to work again. Batteries on both are fine. Then, the second time it happened, I was able to hover over the show desktop block on the lower far right and clicked on show desktop and it started working again.

Cordless RF and Bluetooth Users


In some cases the cordless receiver is detected correctly and all that is needed is to re-sync/connect the receiver to the mouse. Click the links below for directions on how to troubleshoot your cordless device.maybe try to resync. looks like logtech has a good support page for this mouse if you need help still after resync

I've been dealing with this on and off. The latest is that after a while of working, I get a message saying that windows does not recognize my usb hub, which is where I have the bluetooth for both my keyboard and my mouse. I didn't install any special software with this hub, can I make it compatible?

If you've done the obvious like changed the battery, pulled the USB wireless mouse receiver and reinserted it, and still have the problem, I would suggest uninstalling and reinstalling the latest version of Logitech Setpoint mouse driver software available at logitech's support site. And don't forget to reboot afterwards.

I use the Logitech vx Revolution mouse. Really like the way it fits my hand.

Is your USB hub a powered hub ? If not, maybe not enough power for both the keyboard & mouse.

Can you plug the bluetooth into a USB port directly on the computer ?

It is a powered hub. I did plug the bluetooth directly in the computer, but those stop working after a while too! That's why I got the hub in the first place.
