I have Windows xp, and using Firefox, suddenly my cordless mouse has stopped working, I have changed the batteries and pressed the red button, but still not working. Have rebooted the system but still nothing, its a Labtech. I've tried another usb mouse and that's no good, and also another cordless mouse (NGS) and nothing! Help please.

Try a different USB port.
Oh and wait too...

It will take a couple of minutes to detect the mouse and install the drivers, don't expect it to work instantly.

The mouses (?) light up but will not move onscreen.

Told you before, they're not real mice, stop trying to stuff cheese down them!
I had a similar problem yesterday with a new cordless. I used a different USB port. This then said that the mouse was detected on the screen. I then had to synch the mouse by pressing the USB stick button and the on/off button under the mouse until the latter flashed. Then it worked.
