How to Fix a Logitech Laser Mouse

Logitech manufacturers a line of optical laser computer mice. These mice use a light-emitting diode (LED) to produce light that bounces off the surface the laser mouse is on. A sensor inside the laser mouse interprets the signals and translates that to the mouse position on your computer screen. A Logitech laser mouse may encounter physical or software problems that prevent it from being able to work properly. You can troubleshoot most Logitech laser mouse problems short of hardware failure yourself.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Disconnect your Logitech laser mouse from your computer. Remove the USB cable for wired mice or the USB dongle for wireless mice. Reconnect the mouse and see if the problem is fixed.

  2. 2

    Turn the mouse over and check for dirt or debris in the lens. A hair or other small piece of dirt may have been trapped under the bottom of the mouse, interfering with the signal.

  3. 3

    Go to "Start" and "Control Panel." Click "Uninstall a program."

  4. 4

    Look for the Logitech program entry in the list of programs. Select the entry and click "Uninstall." Click "Next" until the Logitech drivers and software are completely uninstalled.

  5. 5

    Download the latest drivers for your Logitech laser mouse from the Logitech website. Double-click the downloaded file and click "Next" throughout the installation wizard until it completes. Performing a clean installation of the driver and utility software for the Logitech laser mouse may clear up any driver issues.

  6. 6

    Turn the Logitech mouse over and press the button or slide to remove the battery cover on wireless laser mice. Change the battery. A near-dead battery causes the mouse to act erratically.

  7. 7

    Go to "Start," "All Programs" and "Windows Update." Click "Check for Updates," then "Install Updates." Restart your computer once Windows Update has completed and check the status of your mouse problem.
