So, the new one is wireless and connects to 1 of 2 usb ports I got. I put the piece into the usb, put the CD in, basically kept clicking next till the "installation is complete". I'm pretty sure this is what I do for th eprevious mice I installed- I then restarted my PC and plugged in the new mouse so I'd be ready at restart- I just unplugged the old mouse twhich has a wire to the mouse port.

New mouse didn't work- I went to mouse properties- said it's installed and working. I went somewhere in controll panel I think and updated the new mouse driver.

What the do I do? :cry:

it said all I had to do to make sure about the usb channels is hit the little reset button on the antenna in the usb and the mouse.

Um, when I finally get the mouse to work, will it work at the same time as my mouse I'm using now, which is plugged into the regular mouse port, or do I have to keep resetting and unplugging the mouse I'm trying to replace so only the one I want is plugged in upon restart?

computer instructions need a revolution :idea:
