    Use GOOGLE to find, download and install the manufacturer drivers for Microsoft Arc Mouse. If your new wireless mouse is direct knockoff, then the the manufacturer drivers should work.

    Is the mouse actually turned on (usually from the bottom)? You can also try going to the device manager In "my computer" and going to where the mouse is listed. Uninstall it and then restart your computer.

    Did you turn off the computer before plugging in the USB tranceiver?

    Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 3000 ,no required software installation. simply plugged the wireless receiver into an available USB port, put a "AA" size battery in the mouse, and turned on the computer. The mouse started working just as Windows XP finished loading. Gr8 performance.....!

    I can't describe how passionately I despise every single wireless mouse I have come across. There is always something wrong, performance and accuracy is horrible, and the battery is drained in a few months. Now I'm using a wired laser mouse on a mouse pad made of glass, and I think it is very awesome.

    There is probably thousands of wireless models that works just as good as the wired ones though, I just haven't found one of them yet ;)

    OT: Have you tried locating the driver on the manufacturers website?
