Question Dell computer mouse doesn't work.

Hello, so I still have a 10ish-year-old Dell USB mouse. It says on the bottom "P/N XN966". This mouse used to work fine, but when I tried to use it today it doesnt work.

I plug it in, the laser turns on, flashes a few times, and turns off. It doesnt every show up on the computer and this exact sequence of events happens every time its plugged in no matter the USB port or computer.
Any way to fix this mouse or just toss it or...

Have you tried working with the mouse on another donor system to rule out that your system might be nitpicky? It happens to most other users. If the mouse indeed is dead, it's possible the control board or the sensor is needing repair which might be more than buying the same mouse off of Amazon.
