my wireless mouse is broken

i have a sweex wireless mouse - its the one where you plug the little reciever into the ps2 port & it sits on the table. it was working fie before xmas & when i came in this morning it was dead:(
i immediatley put a new set of batteries in it & still got nothing - it is completley dead(doornails have more life). i have looked in the manual for help but the english part is only 2 pages long
does anyone have any advise or should i give it up as a bad joke & buy a new mouse(i am using a laptop micro sized mouse & it's aching my fingers)

Have you re synced the mouse after the batteries were replaced? Press the buttons on the underside of the mouse and the receiver.

tried that but nothing- usually the bottom lights up red but i have nothing not even a glimmer

Did you put the Batteries in the right way round.

yes MCE2K5 first thing i checked when noting happened

Check that the PS/2 receiver is plugged in correctly.

Worth a try, it may have been knocked accidently.

Gamer555 have tried that one too but even if that was unplugged the red light on the mouse would come on wouldn't it?
i'm getting nothing except for a sore hand off this tiny mouse i'm using

Look in Device Manager and see if it's showing as a problem if so reinstall the drivers.

rawprawn - no problems showing there

Looks a bit like a new mouse needed, I use a Logitech on my laptop with no problems and the batteries last ages.
