Dear Experts

I bought Logitech M310 wireless mouse from one of the online website and since I bought it didb't work. I am not sure where the problem lies whether is software or hardware problem. Please suggest me to find the issue.

The specifications says it has a Nano Receiver. I have a Logitech mouse with a Nano Receiver that works fine (not your model).

When you plug in the Nano Receiver into a USB port, it should (a) make a sound and (b) show up in Devices and Printers.  Does it do that?

Insert batteries. turn mouse on. insert wireless usb thingy into computer. click connect buttons (if it has them).

Windows should reconize the use wireless unit as a mouse, and install drivers.

If that has all happened and nothing, your mouse/wireless is toast.

I have a couple of those mice. Never had an issue.

The Nano Receiver (if this is what is has) does not require installation and mine even works before Windows has started. .... Thinkpads_User

Did you replace the battery on the keyboard / mice?  If there's a plastic strip, remove it.  Make sure devices are switched to on.

If all else fails, return for another unit.

If the LED on top has never lit up, pull the AAA cell back out and remove the shrinkwrap from around the battery.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Yes.  So if it shows up properly, the the mouse must defective. You should return it as we previously suggested.  ... Thinkpads_User
