    Its a Logitech wireless optical mouse.

    I've pushed the reset button on the bottom, tried restarting my computer and tried using the troubleshooting feature that came with the mouse itself.

    Starting today, the left button stopped working. The right button works fine. The batteries are new. The scroll wheel works fine. The pointer works fine.

    I tried it again and suddenly it was working....then the next time I went to click on something, it stopped again. I just got it for christmas....what could be wrong? The only thing I can possibly think of is that my 18 month old had it in his hand last week banging on the keyboard with it. Maybe he broke it a little bit and thats why its giving me trouble now?

    Unless anyone knows what I can do to try and get it working then I think i'll have to buy a new one.

    So help me if you can. If not, no worries...I still have the mouse that came with my computer and I can get along with that until i get a new one.

    I suspect you'll be buying a new one. It's probably the switch in the mouse, I've had those switches go on mice a number of times. Let's see, I've had 4-5 of them go in 50,000 posts, so you were due for a failure with 16,000! :D

    :D the 16,000 is what I accomplished in my 4 and a half years here. The mouse came to me just 4 months ago. Surely I cant be that much of a clicker! :D

    although....I do like to click a lot! :eek:

    thanks, John. Even without all the clickin' the baby probably made the switch unstable when he was using it as a hammer. :eek:

    Yes, my grandson has tossed several of my wireless mice, and I've had to repair them several times. They don't stand up to that kind of abuse. :D
