My retractable targus optical mouse keeps turning on and off when I plug it in. How do I take it apart? Model: AMU75US

The problem may be in the actual connectors. Try using a different USB port. If the mouse is out of warranty, you could snip the usb plug off and splice it into another USB connector.

I need a wiring diagram for a Targus PAUMO1

Not worth it!
One wrong wire could burn out multiple USB ports on your computer (or any computer the device is plugged into).
It would be best to get a new or used mouse.

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!

HP 3 button wireless optical mouse

Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud
