I've pretty much given up trying to use any optical mouse on my system anymore but maybe you guys have a suggestion. I used to have an optical mouse that connected to my system and worked well. It began to die and over the course of a month or so it would only work some of the time. It finally died on me and I got another optical mouse. It was detected by my system but the light wouldn't go on thus I couldn't use it. I tried 4 others and they were all detected but would not work. I am now using an old mouse with a roller ball in it. I would very much prefer to go back to my old mouse. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

How do you plug mouse into computer usb? or standard mouse port? Switch method used if possible and see what happens you may need adapter depending upon which port you use.

I assume you are using usb port. Try also switching usb ports which you are using.


When the mouse is connected go into control panel and look at your device drivers are all devices installed properly?

Thanks for the suggestion. I have a usb connector at the end of my optical mouse but it also has a regular mouse port adapter as well. I have tried using both as well as using different usb port on my comp.... still nothing :)

To verify that the mouse is functioning correctly, plug it into a different computer and see if it works.

Edit: When I Google "US2-GA1007" this thread is #1 result :)
