Question about Targus AMW15US Mouse

1 Answer

USB device not being picked up

I purchased the AMW15US and am using it on my laptop with Windows Vista.

Spontaneously, my computer stopped recognizing the USB device. It still glows, but it doesn't pick up the mouse signal or anything. I've tried plugging it into different USB ports, restarting the machine, etc. Nothing works. Has anyone else had that problem?

The Device Manager window opens. Click to select your computer as the location for the scan. On the Action menu, click Scan for hardware changes. Windows XP recognizes the new device. Close the Device Manager window. If this method resolves the issue, you are finished. If this method does not resolve the issue, go to method 2.

My Logitech V220 mouse worked for 3 months. Now it doesnt?


I would go in and uninstall the mouse completely and then reinstall it fresh using the Logitech software.

Targus mouse not recognized


What is the OS of your computer? This Targus mouse would work with Win 98, Win 2000 and Win XP. Vista was not mentioned. And if you are running Windows Vista for you laptop, then that could be the reason why it was not recognized by the computer.

Is this the wireless optical mouse? If yes, you need to follow the steps below to isolate the problem:

1. Connect the USB receiver into different USB ports of the computer.
2. Replace the batteries with the fresh ones.
3. Try connecting the mouse into different computer to see if you've got a defective mouse.

If you've tried everything and got the same problem, you may need to refer to the manufacturer, because I'm not sure if this mouse is a Plug-n-Play device or if it needs a driver.

Have a great day!
