mouse pointer stopped working

    What is the unifying receiver? I do not have another mouse but this one seems to work except for the pointer.

    Mouse dongle is just another word for the unifying receiver, the little thumb size thing that plugs into the USB that picks up the signals from the mouse.

    Thanks, but I do not have access to another computer.
    I will try a local repairman and see if he can make this work.

    Please , just buy another mouse ... see if it works on your pc ..."If it does the same thing" then you can return it
    To make sure you don't have to pay for the local guy for nothing ....
    He's going to tell you buy another mouse and charge you $50.00 for labor .
