Question about Targus (AMU02US) Mouse

Open Question

Using a Targus AMU02US Retractable not working with Lenovo T61

I have checked the BIOS setting USB power is enabled. This is affecting all USB ports. The Laptop is docked and has a USB keyboard attached to it. With the USB port in the Keyboard, I can use the mouse. Using the laptop USB ports I cannot. I have also tested the laptop ports using another mouse same model and it worked. So I know it is not the ports or the mouse. I have a replacement mouse that I am going to use. I just wanted to put this one to bed as this is not the only laptop or time with this issue. Please advise.

The mouse worked initially....have you tried doing a system restore back to a few weeks ago to see if that solves the problem..
With Vista and so many of it's incompatibility issue's...you maybe have downloaded something and it corrupted your software for that mouse...

Here is the url with vista drivers. Redownload the drivers and install...see if this helps

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.

Usb ports not working


Go into the bios and check to make sure the usb ports are enabled if that is an option. Reboot the computer and notice the screen to see which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. Hit the key and look through the bios for settings that affect the USB ports.

If you computer recognized the devices in the past it should recognize them now unless the drivers are messed up or missing, or the ports have gone bad.

If you are using usb devices that you have not used before on the computer then try one of your old usb devices that you have used before on the computer. It could be that the new usb devices are too advanced for the system. Some old systems for example can't read or detect a 1TB usb external drive.

If the usb device came with drivers, install the drivers.

My T61 shuts off after 15 secs of installing any OS. It shuts off even while changing BIOS Settings. Please help.


Have you tried a different power adapter? Is the fan working? I assume it is getting through the ram check? Also try with the battery out. Is it saving bios settings?

Western Digital external USB 2.0 Problem


Buy an External USB 2.0 Hub with the 5.0V power supply. I have a TARGUS 4 Port Hub. MY WD2500XMSB works fine thru the HUB, but will not work using any cable (even the one that came with it) when directly connected to the USB port on my computer. The power consumption of passports sometimes exceeds the .5 milliwat rating for the ports and ccause the port power to interrupt (see USB 2.0 specifications). The external hubs with external power have a higher power output usually an can power the passport drives. CW Rumsey

Reset factory password on t61 lenovo


password for what? bios or windows?
if it's the windows password, press the f8 key before windows starts and choose safe mode, choose administrator for the username and then go to user accounts and remove the password for your account.
if it's the bios password, you have to strip the laptop and pull the bios battery on the system...it looks like a large watch battery but becarefull not to break anything.

Retractable Cord won't lock


When fully extended (you have to hold the cord in place since it won't lock), slide the rectractable device down the cord until it is butted up against the USB connector. You can use the mouse with no problems like this. When you are done, slide the retractor back to the middle of the cord and the ends will wind back in. It's not a perfect solution but at least makes the mouse usable.

My laptop doesn't detect the external hard drive


Hi there
hey if you are not getting it to recognizing the drive on system startup use your set up disk if you have it if not go to device manager and scan for hardware change and see if it can be found there if not try going into the bios and ensure that the usb ports are enabled and that the plug and play is enabled also you also need to ensure that the device is compatable with your pc i would check with the manufacture of the computer best regards mike
