Bluetooth mouse won't work

I brought a bluetooth mouse the brand of the mouse is called targus. I added it to to bluetooth devices and it worked but then when i turned my laptop off and on the next day it wouldn't work. The red light is on and everything the lazer bit at the back, but every time i press the id button at the back of the mouse the little red light at the front won't flash, so the bluetooth port can't find the id for my mouse.

I was wondering if you could help me, if there's anyway of fixing it instead of buying a new mouse

    It didn't come with a disk. I looked to see if i was the only one without a disk. but i'm pretty sure that this bluetooth mouse just doesn't come with i disk. I don't know anything about fixing things but i was i little curious so i took the three screws out and took it apart and just had a look at it. I connected the bluetooth back up to i while it was apart then the id light came on and started flashing so i put it back together and then it found the mouse on bluetooth. I did the same thng today but it didn't work, now the little red id light is on but it doen's flash.

    Is there any way of fixing it. Or is the mouse just faulty

    i can't find my product on there and when i do wich is the targus recharcheable optical bluetooth notebook mouse (amb06au) the picture it shows is not my mouse plus the fact that at the end of all of them they say us when mine says au and then it says for mac which i'm hp windows vista

  • jkwaasit Nov 21, 2008

    Lol i already know how 2 set it up i read the manual heaps of times. I set it up the otha day and it worked but that's because the id light at the front was flashing which meant my bluetooth could find my mouse the only reason y it hasn't found it is because my id light which should flash doesn't. At first there was no light on it. Then like i said i took it apart, it worked then i turned off my laptop then on again. now the light is on but it just won't flash.

    I'm thinking it's a faulty mouse, but i was hoping that there would be a way of fixing it so i didn't have 2 buy a new one

    hi, i have the same problem as jkwaasit.
    Just wondering if anyone found any solution to the problem. Mine (AMB06AU) has been working fine for about 3 months. Now when i click onto the ID button, the red flash light doesnt blink at all. And consequently, the bluetooth cannot detect the mouse. Help!

Whe u installed you mouse, you installed it from the cd from targus..right? so there is some settings in that program that you can change so when you turn on your laptop the bluetooth seeks for bluetooth items and it will find your mouse. I know its a little bit tricky but you can fix it, find the settings, change them and you dont have to buy a new mouse.

When you turn of your laptop the cooonnection betwen the item is lost, when you turn on you laptop i asume that your bluetooth is now passive, by making it active it starts immediately search for bluetooht items.

Good luck!

Blue tooth mouse on Fujitsu 8110 not working.

Check to see if your Bluetooth is turned on.

In windows 7 you can review your device manager under network devices for your Bluetooth. You may need to review your manual for a F-Key to engage.
Hope this helps
Also, in your device manager you will want to look for device flags. If found, remove and reinstall the device. Do this with only your Bluetooth device connected. Remove any other devices hooked up

Built in mouse has not worked properly from day 1. Now my external mouse won't work either. I tried a different external moue, but it doesn't work either.

Unplug everything except the power cord, including the following:

USB devices
Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs)
USB flash drive or other external storage devices
External Monitor
External Keyboard
External Mouse
If your computer is attached to a docking station, undock it.

Make sure the touchpad or your finger has no dirt, grease, liquids or food on it (the touchpad has to make a good contact with your finger to work correctly).

Turn the computer back on and retest the touchpad.

When the touchpad still does not work correctly proceed to step 5.

When the touchpad does work correctly, attach one external device at a time and test the touchpad to see which one may have caused the issue.

Make sure the latest driver for the touchpad is installed (you may need to use a external USB or Bluetooth mouse), for more information refer to:

Wireless mice devices are very cheap these days. For the effort and hassle you'll go through trying to find a usb dongle to work with that one mouse, Go buy a new one. You can find them for ten bucks.. But I'd go with a twenty dollar one to last longer and feel better in hand. Best buy, Office Max etc..

My brother and I have the AWE01us1 chill hub. Initially it worked fine. We have a wireless microsoft mouse and USB adapter is connected to 1 of the 4 USB ports. Occasionally the mouse stops working...

When I typed AWE01us1 chill hub in my search engine I came up with Targus as the manufacturer of the chill hup not the laptop. Before buying products I would read customer rates and comments on the products. My public library has a free link to consumer reports, or has product ratings.

I'm also getting mixed info regarding the mouse, is the mouse wireless, stopped working, and you somehow overrode the wireless with a USB cable and that stopped working. I'm assuming the mouse worked fine before the installation of the chill hub. If you read the reviews on Amazon, I'm seeing other types of USB problems. Try returning the chill hub and purchasing another brand. You may have to call customer support for the laptop. Let me know if this was helpful.

Hi, I have a DELL wireless travel-mouse which works fine on my DELL inspiron, but does not work on my ACER Aspire One netbook - do I need to find a specific driver or will it never work? thanks. David

Wireless mice usually work via radio frequencies commonly referred to as RF.this is also the case with bluetooth if your mouse is a bluetooth mouse you may need to run the software to make the mouse communicate with your PC.another issue is pairing (coordinating your mouse's transmitter with your mouse's receiver. It requires both parts to operate on the same frequencies, usually by using the same identification code. Pairing takes place to try to eliminate interference. Some devices automatically pair both devices at start up; others need to be manually paired by entering the same codes on both devices.once both devices are paired they will generally communicate with each of luck.

Blue tooth icon missing from system tray now Dell blue tooth mouse wont work

You need to connect a wired usb mouse first and try pairing the bluetooth mouse again with your system by going to the control panel and opening your bluetooth device manager. Click add a device and press the connect button underneath your mouse. System should be able to detect your mouse. If that failed, try replacing the batteries with fresh ones.

I am unable to locate the bluetooth setting on my acer 6930. I am trying to use a bluetooth mouse and the button to 'turn on' the bluetooth function is not working. I have tried to locate the bluetooth...

You didn't list an operating system but as I have a 6930 with Vista, I can give you what I know based on mine. If you go to Control Panel - Bluetooth Devices, you will find options to add bluetooth devices and a settings button for devices you have added. However, the 6930 does not come with bluetooth built-in, just the capability to turn it on and off. If your mouse did not come with a bluetooth adapter for the computer, you'll have to get one separately to use your mouse.

How do I enable bluetooth in my Acer Extensa 4420-5963

Actually Acer use the same laptop case for some of their models, so the acer 4420 doesn´t have built-in bluetooth, you won´t find any driver for the bluetooth cause that reason. I have an extensa 4420-5910, have a bluetooth switch in the case but no bluetooth, if you check at Acer´s web page it say thet some models doesn´t have built-in bluetooth but the switch is in the laptop case... On the other hand, if you install an external bluetooth device, the case switch will be usefull to turn it on and off.

My Bluetooth mouse will not work on my laptop...

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
