    help mouse !

    My optical mouse has stopped working any idea why? No pretty red light and won't do anything I've tried unplugging it and giving the connection a good blow ! and tried plugging it into another usb post but no good. I've had to resort to using an old mouse which is driving me mad as it is also k*******d. Suggestions please or have I got to invest in a new mouse.

    I don't think so, I can't see where there would be batteries. It is a bog standard mouse that came with the pc which we only bught last year.

    Have you tried rebooting PC, if you haven't done so already ?

    I think it may have gone to optical mouse heaven and you
    need to buy a new one.

    Same thing happened to me last week on 2 month old mouse. BT engineer who came to set up broadband just cleaned the light underneath with a bit of rolled up tissue and it works a treat now.

    (Pity he didn't fix BT broadband talk properly when he was here - they want another 50 for him ot come back !!!)

    Have tried rebooting and cleaning, no good. Have to go out later so may pop into Argos and get a new one they seem to be quite cheap these days, might be brave and go for a wireless one.

    Sorted ! Had to go out earlier and as we were going right past an Argos popped in and got a new mouse, only 7.97 (not wireless). Thanks for your help but as Clare said I think the old one had gone to mouse heaven. Would have expected it to have lasted a bit longer than it did though as we only got the new pc last August, but as it came with the "package" it was probably a basic cheapie and it had had a lot of use.
