I got one from Logitech for £10 would probably have been better off buying a new mouse.

Is there no stamp or model number underneath it,If it was unbranded and relatively cheap best buying a new mouse.

They are that small nowadays it is easy to loose them.Check the vacume cleaner if you have been near it with that.

Thanks for reply. Yes, may have to buy a new one instead. Just that I don't like waste.

What happened did you take or remove it from your Computer or Laptop for a reason.

Then you put it somewhere safe and it is that safe you can't remember where you put it.

I know that my usb wireless receiver can fit inside the mouse if I am not using it,That way I know where it should be.

Have you had a look in Amazon I know they sell them on there but I suppose you would need to know the make of the mouse.

Just wondering if the likes of Speccy or any of those types of programs would give you the details of your mouse.

Just tried it and Speccy tells me that I am using a Logitech mouse,So if you can get the makers name you may well be able to get one from Amazon for about £6.

It just gives you all of your system information.Much the same as Belarc or SIW.

Yes, got Belarc for a long time. Going to buy a new one as it's too much hassle trying to get the receiver.

"Going to buy a new one..."

Which is possibly the most wisest,simplest and cheapest decision, but what's the bet the other one will turn up when the new one arrives :O)

Sods law, As soon as you buy a new one you will probably find the old one.

I must admit I have 2 computers one wired and the other Wireless and apart from having no wires about.I prefer the wired one.

Anyhow best of luck with your new mouse when you get it.

Just a thought for you all in the future,i use a toolbox to store all my PC bits in that includes pens e.t.c. I also have to other tool boxes one for usb cables and the other for the rest of the stuff like mains adapters,and i wrire on the mains adapter what it's for,saves loads of hastle. But as you say sons law is that as soon as you replace a reciever you'll find the old one.
