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

I just bought a new mouse for my laptop. It is a Targus Kaleidoscope Optical Mouse. For my HP Pavilion dv2700, I plugged it in and it will not work,it did install itself several times.Everytime I plugged...


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 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!

My laptop mouse wont work


do you mean the mouse integrated in the laptop or an external USB mouse?
If it is the integrated mouse, try to get an USB mouse, plug it and wait until your laptop recognize it, assuming you are working in Windows XP right clic on My Computer, clic on Properties --> Hardware --> Device Manager , double clic on Mice and other pointing devices, once here, look for the mouse of your laptop (do not mis identify it with the external mouse that you just plugged) right clic on it and clic on uninstall.
Restart your laptop, once in windows again it will recognize the mouse as a new device and will install the drivers again. 
Good luck!

How to set up and use targus wireless computer mouse model#amw26


Under the mouse there should be a usb stick attached to the mouse which most likely should slide out from the mouse. It also appears that the plastic cover behind the two buttons (this cover has targus written on it) Should come off. After you remove the usb stick there might be a button somewhere on the bottom of the mouse that you should be able to press to get the battery cover to pop up. Then you should be able to pull up on the battery cover and remove it from the mouse. This mouse takes two AA batteries. Once the batteries are installed then plug the usb stick into any of the usb ports on the computer. The computer should recognize the drivers for this mouse (if you are using Windows 2000, XP, Vista, or Mac OS X [or higher]). If the drivers are not immediately recognized then restart your computer and the computer should then recognize the mouse. If this still does not happen then let me know. Also there is software that can be downloaded from the Targus website for the tilt wheel as it has some added capabilities that can be set using this software. The link for that software is here ------> http://www.targus.com/us/product_details.asp?sku=AMW26US

I hope this helps, and enjoy that mouse, it looks pretty nice!
