Mouse is not working
If your mouse isn't working, the problem is likely a lost connection. The connection between the mouse and the USB receiver can be lost for several reasons, such as:
- Low batteries
- Moving the receiver from one USB port to another.
- Moving the USB receiver to another computer.
- Plugging the receiver into a USB hub or other unsupported device such as a KVM switch (NOTE: Your receiver must be plugged directly into your computer).
- Using your wireless mouse on metal surfaces.
- Radio frequency (RF) interference from other sources, such as:
- Wireless speakers
- Computer power supplies
- Cell phones
- Garage door openers
Before connecting your M185:
Fix or rule out the potential problems listed above.
