Did you have problems getting this mouse to work when you first installed it?

I couldn't get mine to move the cursor at all or to register in the logitech set point control panel at all despite it showing up in the hardware tab of windows control panel (in either XP or Vista64 (dual boot system)).

A reboot got it working for a few months (in XP only) but after my 3 year old niece unplugged the receiver on the weekend I cannot get it working again.

I've tried the re-register sequence I got from the logitech help page (run re-register program, hold left mouse button switch mouse off and back on again right click 5 times then let go of left mouse button) to no avail.

I think I'm going to try and do a re-install to see if a clean install will solve this.

I had the same problem. Here's how to solve it :

When you first got your mouse it was 75% charged. This is the key to getting it to work with the Logitech Connect Utility. Simply charge your mouse to at least this level and re-connect using the 5 times click method (with the Connect Utility Software).

Bingo! One working mouse! (You might find it occassionally needs doing again, especially if you change O/S or motherboards etc...)

I purchased the MX Revolution almost a year ago, as an upgrade from the MX 1000 (which is still a great mouse) After just a couple of weeks it stopped working and it appeared it was the transceiver. Contacted Logitech and after much back and forth they replaced the mouse and transceiver. a few weeks later the transceiver went again. In Frustration I reverted to my MX 1000. Logitech have now agreed to send me a 3rd transceiver, but I am concerned that this is a common problem with this mouse. I am also considering the Logitech Di Novo keyboard which I believe uses the same transceiver.

do I need seperate transceivers for each piece of equipment, or can they both work on the same transceiver? Has anyone else experienced this problem, is it a know fault with Logitech Transceivers?Will my di novo keyboard suffer the same fate?

i have the m705 which is basically the same mouse as this but without the stand. replaced with2 AA batteries and of course the reciever. much less clutter. i havent had to change the batteries for over 8-9 months and i use it for at least 5 hours everyday (gaming). this is the selling point.
