I was in bangalore tour and once i returned i found M235 wireless mouse not working. I tried replacing battery but still same, green light glows in both cases but the pointer doesnt move. Also tried all possible ways mentioned on google, disabled drivers from device manager, did registry modifications etc. it was mentioned about resetting mouse but I didnt find any such button on this model

Please help guys pensive

Did you try connecting it to a different device?

Only 2 things possible, software issue or hardware issue. if its a hardware issue nothing can be done amid coronavirus, but if it is software issue u might try system restore point, reset it to the day when it worked / plugin in plug out the bluetooth receiver adaptor several times, worked for me in past / find if any drivers missing in device manager. Try ur luck

Check by booting into a (live or otherwise) mainstream Linux distro. At least can rule out driver shenanigans. My first LT mouse survived 3 yrs of heavy usage. Rest barely a year.

This is assuming the live/installed linux does have the required wifi/bt drivers in the first place. Many hardware manufacturers are not known for their linux driver support.

Does it come with a unifying receiver?

Linux driver support nowadays is pretty robust. Several times I have had to hunt around for Windows drivers for stuff ranging from 4G dongles to USB Wifi adapters whereas Linux distros would support it out-of-the box. As long as the kernel isn’t too old though. M235 has been around long enough so I am guessing it shouldn’t be an issue.

Infact in order to update drivers i used 2 of jio 5gb data vouchers and performed full fledged windows 10 update still in vain.
But the brightness bar in action center was a much needed relief

Waiting for windows to Allow users to Stop Automatic updates stuck_out_tongue

Set your internet connection to “Metered”. And live booting Linux doesn’t require a full installation. No change to existing partitions.

Puppylinux was around 100_200 mb but not sure if had everything for your need like mouse driver etc.. better get ubuntu cd close to 700 mb last check.. no install needed direct from pendrive or cd ..

Make sure your boot option are set as per choice

If it doesn’t work on another computer as well, that means problem is isolated to mouse, no need to touch windows installation. Most likely the usb receiver may have gone bad. As a last resort make sure the contract points for battery are clean in mouse. Or buy a new mouse.

If you stay in Delhi, i have a M185 working but non functional due to button problem. You may collect mine and check if it’s usb receiver will work for you. I recently bought a portronics wireless mouse for 250 from Amazon, works good

it will not work… each Bluetooth receivers are different.

Both models are almost identical so I thought…
If he can replace just the internal buttons as well, then also it can be useful. Anyway

Naa OP’s mouse has a unifying receiver, I was googling it. So, it will be connected with any unifying receiver. But M185 has an encrypted receiver, unique to a particular model. So, M235 can’t be paired with a M185 receiver

Follow the following steps.

First of all plugin your unifying receiver to your PC. Download https://download01.logi.com/web/ftp/pub/techsup... . Update the firmware. It ll fix some security loop holes.
Then

Download Logitech Options.
https://download01.logi.com/web/ftp/pub/techsup...
Then install the app.

You won’t see anything like this because this has already been set up by me.

Click on Add device.
