Hi Folks, I have connected a USB mouse from my PC to a laptop but can get no response from it. It goes through the process of installing and is recognised in the control panel device manager etc, but can't get it to work. It says this device is working correctly. Any ideas please.

have you pressed the button on the usb receiver and button on bottom of mouse within a few seconds if this is a wireless optical mouse

Hi Woodchip, it is not a remote mouse.

You may have to disable touchpad for it to work. I think some laptops are like that
