extension seat, or that the extensions seat's cable is connected to your PC.

Make sure you have established a wireless link between the mouse and its receiver. See “Synchronization” on page 5.

I do not see the laser light when the mouse is active.

Unlike traditional optical mice, the light is not visible when the laser mouse is active.

To make sure the mouse is on and functioning properly, move the mouse back and forth and check to see if the cursor responds.

My mouse does not work on a mirror or glass surface.

Though rated for most of these kinds of surfaces, occasionally there will be one such surface that will cause the mouse to work improperly or not at all.

If you are using the mouse on a reflective or mirrored surface, move it to another surface.

What do I do if the response time of the mouse is slow or the mouse intermittently stops working?

"Increase the distance between the mouse's receiver and the rest of your computer equipment. Use the USB extension seat if necessary.

"Increase the distance between the mouse's receiver and the base units of other wireless devices.

"Turn off any wireless devices and their base units that are near the mouse's receiver.

If you are using the mouse on a metal surface, move it and the receiver to a non-metalsurface.
