How to Reset a Gigaware Optical Mouse

By Luther Blissett

Radio Shack is an exclusive supplier of Gigaware optical mice. The mice are powered by conventional AA batteries and feature a low-battery indicator built into the scroll wheel. Additionally, the mice are compatible with both Microsoft Windows and Apple's OSX operating system. In the event of a malfunction, the process for resetting the optical mouse is identical to that for installation. No special software or additional hardware is needed to complete the reset.

Step 1

Slide the power button for the mouse to the "off" position. The button is located on the bottom of the mouse.

Step 2

Open the mouse's battery compartment and remove the batteries. The cover can be easily removed using the hole in the cover located on the right side.

Step 3

Disconnect the mouse's USB receiver from the computer's USB port.

Step 4

Reinstall the batteries into the mouse and slide the power button to the "on" position.

Step 5

Slide the USB receiver back into a USB port on the computer.

Step 6

Press the "connect" button located on the bottom left hand side of the mouse and the very tip of the USB receiver to complete the resetting process.
