have you tried to blow the air vents out yet? could be clogged with dirt or dust in the vents causing it to overheat .please describe any and all symptoms it was having due to this problem.

it is getting power ok from the battery and the adapter. the mouse wont wake it up, so when I push the power button the green indicator lights at the bottom come on momentarily, it makes the familiar whirring sound for about 2 seconds then goes back off. the green lights that come on are- the first one that looks like a light bulb, the power light.one that looks like a signal tower, and the one marked no,1. thanks for your help.
it is like something is trying to keep it from starting.

✔ Best Answer
How do you know it is getting power from the cord? I would suggest swapping out the cord and the battery for one you know works.

is this a wireless mouse or the built in one?
wireless mouse could have a bad battery? if all else fails try remove power cord and battery pressing the power button after removing power cord and battery hold on button down for about 60 seconds then put battery back in attach power cord and see if it will turn back on
