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!

Hi, please send me driver for mouse PAUM01U. My laptop not recognizes the mouse or when recognizes malfunctions. Tanks a lot


There are no drivers oddly, I looked everywhere. I have the exact same mouse and the exact same problem that you do. None of my computers would recognize so I just assume that perhaps the mouse is broken. Every Targus product I had has been cheaply made.

First thing you need to do is to know that the USB ports of your laptop is really working. Insert another usb devices or storage such a flash disk. If the flash disk being inserted is not recognized by the system then the usb port you had inserted is malfunctioning or it is defective. But if the other usb devices like the flash disk is working then your new bought mouse is defective. Try to plug the usb mouse to the other ports available in your laptop.

Targus mouse not working


I checked the Targus website (http://www.targus.com/us/default.asp) for any other useful information. Use the "support" option at the website for a good troubleshooting guide for your particular mouse. Is this a new mouse? The mouse you have uses the native windows drivers and should be auto-recognized by XP. Have you kept your XP updates current? My concern is why XP could not install the software drivers needed(You would have gotten some type of an error message). Check the "details" link shown with the error message.That should point you in the right direction---rick
