Wireless mouse not working...

I have a wireless mouse and keyboard.

Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000
Wireless Comfort Keyboard 4000

I have had these for quite some time and they have been solid as a rock. Last week the mouse pointer refused to work or even show up on the screen. I changed the batteries and still nothing. However, the buttons on the mouse still work. Just no pointer (arrow) on the screen. I am running Windows 7.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Unplug and re-plug the USB "dongle" or "adapter" that they use.
