I have a Toshiba 4GB RAM 500SATA laptop which is working quite wonderfully for me, I was gifted a Nitro sweex Mouse which raised the bar for it, the mouse was working perfectly until yesterday when it's DPI seemed to be (turning on and off) and then it turned off fully, now it refuses to work on any PC I plug it in

Unless, you can go through the motions of a rodent clean up then there comes a time where you might have to admit defeat.
Get a new one, because they do become defunct or lifeless;

Take it to someone who knows how to take mice apart. And then you put the pcb in the oven for a while.
