SOURCE: Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 doesn't work

Hi
If you take the batteries out there is a screw in there. unscrew and open (not easy) with flat knife in the edges wiggling.
attach and touch all the inside wires. I have had the same problem and it is an internal connector problem. Opening and closing aint easy and will take a little patience but it will work.
Good luck

SOURCE: why does not microsoft wireless mouse laser 6000 work suddenly?

Well, I had the same problem, too, and I just turned my PC off, waited a few seconds and turned it on again. This means I really turned it off completely; normal restarting didn't work. Maybe that helps you too.

SOURCE: How do I sync a Microsoft Wireless Notebook Laser

You have to have the mouse and the usb receiver on the same channel. There should be a small button on both devices. First press the button on the mouse to see if starts to work. repeat at least 5 times to get through all the channels. If it doesn't work, then try pressing the buttons on the usb receiver and the mouse. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: microsoft wireless notebook laser mouse 6000 not working

I have a miscrosoft wireless laser mouse 6000, and it also stopped working on my laptop. I changed the battery, still no workie. I tested the battery in another device, and it was good. I moved the mouse to another computer, and it did not work. The light on the usb connector was lit. [No changes at all to my laptop.]. It seemed like there was no power to the mouse, and I looked at the contacts inside the mouse. The contact just inside the mouse's opening for the battery appeared to be bent down (away from the contact on the battery tray). So, I pulled it up a little so it would connect when the battery drawer closed, and (after tweaking it a couple of times), it finally worked!

I have lost my Microsoft Laser Mouse 6000 Disc


Visit the official software download site at Microsoft:You'll want to select your operating system, 32- or 64-bit then your language. This should be the same software that came on your install disc.

Note: to find out if you have 32 or 64 bit windows in Vista and 7 click on Start then right-click Computer and select properties. A window will come up with that information. If you have XP you would have to go out your way to get 64-bit so if you aren't sure then you have 32-bit.

How do I increase the range on my wireless microsoft 6000 keyboard and microsoft wireless laser mouse 6000 v2.0.


I have a Microsoft Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 6000 that also has a very short range. The only solution I've found so far is to plug the receiver into a USB extention cord and run the cord toward the mouse.

XP Display turns off after switching to Win 7


search for WIN 7 & KVM switch issues... you will find thousand of hits, because WIN 7 has one unique feature where it disables internal and external ports if these are not in use.

In a KVM solution setup this would mean, while you are connected everything is fine, now when you switch over to your (Lets say) WIN XP and work for 30 minutes on it... and then switch back, WIN 7 might have already scanned and seen that the USB port where the KVM cable comes in is IDLE... so it disconnected it... you cannot get it back until you reboot your WIN 7 system. Its not the KVM solution is one of those Microsoft wonder weapons that breaks what has worked for 20 years
