Question about Targus AMB03US

2 Answers

Bluetooth Mouse Sirs: I purchased a Targus Mouse in January and have had continuous problems with it. I can get it to work for a while and then it does not. I finnally did something right the other day and it worked. I turned the lap top off and the next day it does not work. I go through all the instructions in the manual. Things seem to be going right then I get the signal message: "Devise Targus BT Laser Notebook Mouse does not support service Bluetooth Serial Port." I have spent hours at different times since purchasing this from Dell. I wish I had never spent the money for this mouse. I can not find any answers in the manual. Please give me some suggestions. I know it can work. Bob Cornelius, [email protected]

    I too have had problems with getting the mouse to be recognized and after it finally does, it stops being recognized after the computer is turned off and then restarted.

    Thinking it might be constantly draining the recharable batteries but it is usually left plugged in almost all the time and this would seem to rule out this as an explanation for failure.

    Tech support via Targus website poor and does not address the problem. It may be that Vista is different from Windows and the manual is written for Windows and not updated.

This happens to me alot when my Dell laptop w/ Vista is restarted. It seems to be the bluetooth-- Vista says the bluetooth sent an error and the driver was not installed. Usually a reboot fixes it. I suggest once it is working don't turn your PC off!

Try new batteries. If this does not work then try reinstalling the blue tooth drivers. If this does not work then replace the mouse. if you purchased it from Dell, it might be still under warranty.

Any solution for apple wireless mouse not able to scroll-happens frequently-I do all the usual things, ie: cleaning scroll ball with a toothbrush, alcohol, etc. Works for a while, sometimes an hour, day,...

if you're having issues with a "mighty mouse" let me tell you that no matter how well you clean it, the problem will continue. If you can't get a free replacement from Apple, the best experience for us at my office has been to move to Logitech bluetooth mice. Logitech V270 Cordless Optical Bluetooth Mouse works great and you have all the functions you need like scrolling, right and left click, etc.

Bluetooth mouse won't work

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!
