Your mouse is not working? A simple solution to a big problem for novice users!
Often there is a situation on a personal computer when the mouse is not working. This can be caused by hardware or software problems. This article outlines the methodology for eliminating this fault. Following the instructions set forth in this material, it is possible in most cases to restore the manipulator operation. After all, most modern users simply do not submit their work on a PC without a mouse. The following manipulations cannot be attributed to the tasks of increased complexity. Even a beginner can cope with them and solve all the problems in a situation where the mouse does not work.
Start the procedure with the most simple. First of all, we reboot the operating system.Sometimes some of its components freeze, and because of this the mouse does not work. Re-initializing it may solve the problem. To reboot into the "seven" using the keyboard, you must perform the following steps:
- press the "Start" button;
- in the window that opens, use the arrow keys to move the cursor to the "Shut down";
- press the right arrow and call the menu;
- in it you need to select the item "Restart" and press "Enter";
- then everything will go automatically.
If the keyboard does not work, then you can use the "Reset" or "Power" buttons. In the first case, the first of them is enough to briefly hold. Then the restart will go automatically. But with “Power” a little more complicated. You need to hold it and wait until the PC turns off. Then turn on the system unit.
In the next step, you need to check the hardware resources of the manipulator. If you have it wireless, replace the batteries and check it in operation. Another common reason why a mouse does not work is blocking the port. In such a situation, you can simply connect it to another connector (if you have a USB manipulator).It is possible for the purity of the experiment to connect your manipulator to another computer, and from it - to yours, if possible. This will accurately identify the cause of the fault. If your mouse in this situation does not work, then, most likely, it is faulty and easier to purchase a new one. But in the opposite case, you need to reinstall the driver.
Another common reason the mouse doesn't work is driver problems. They can either be downloaded or installed from a CD-ROM, which should be sold in the kit. Next, do the following steps:
- Call the Start menu, we find the “Control Panel” in it. Press "Enter";
- select "Device Manager";
- To move the cursor between the windows, press "Tab";
- use the arrow keys to select the item “Mice and other pointing devices”;
- use the right arrow to open the drop-down list;
- in it you need to put a marker on our mouse and press "Del";
- We answer “OK” and delete the old drivers.
Next you need to install new software. To do this, run the installation package and follow its instructions. A similar procedure is recommended to do with the software on the ports for connection. It is usually located on the motherboard CD.
