If your mouse isn't working, the problem is likely a lost connection. The connection between the mouse and the Unifying receiver can be lost for several reasons, such as:
- Low battery levels
- Moving the receiver from USB one port to another
- Moving the receiver to another computer
- Plugging the receiver into a USB hub or other unsupported device such as a KVM switch (NOTE: Your Unifying receiver must be plugged directly into your computer.)
- Using your wireless mouse on metal surfaces
- Radio frequency (RF) interference from more powerful devices such as:
- Wireless speakers
- Computer power supplies
- Cell phones
- Garage door openers
Before reconnecting your mouse
Before you connect your mouse to a Windows computer:
Fix or rule out the potential problem sources listed above.
Turn your computer on.
Insert fresh batteries in your mouse. For instructions on changing your mouse battery, see answer 360023247594.
Turn your mouse on. The power indicator on top should be green
If the power indicator is not lit, move the power switch on the bottom of the mouse to the "ON" position. The power indicator should now turn green.
Plug the receiver directly and securely into a working USB port on your computer.
