How to connect mouse to Toshiba laptop

First of all, I am assuming you are using a current laptop with USB connectors. For a corded mouse, insert the USB plug into a USB socket. After the computer recognizes the mouse, use the computer control panel software to set up the mouse. For a USB wireless mouse, insert the dongle into a USB socket. After the computer recognizes the dongle, use the computer control panel software to set up the mouse.

How to install 2.4Ghz wireless mouse with USB receiver?

Insert the batteries into the mouse. Turn the mouse over, find the battery cover, and slide it off. Insert the appropriate batteries-usually two AAs.
  • The wireless receiver that plugs into the computer uses USB power, so it needs no batteries.
Connect the receiver to the computer. If your computer has a USB port (as most do), plug your receiver into an available port. There will also be a green adapter supplied, in the event that your system requires the use of the mouse port. Caution-don't try and force the mouse adapter into the keyboard port!
  • The mouse receiver has a USB plug (left), but can also plug into the mouse plug through the adapter it came with (right). If your receiver plugs into the USB port it should look like the left. If it plugs into the mouse plug it should look like the one on the right, only connected to the receiver.
Connect the mouse to the receiver. Place the mouse in close proximity to the receiver, and note the following:
  • The receiver should have a visible button that is easily pushable by the average human finger.
  • The mouse will usually have a very small reset button in a hole on the bottom that can be pushed by something like a pencil or paper clip.
  • Push both buttons at the same time with the receiver and the mouse relatively close to each other for about 5 seconds or more.
Find a permanent position the receiver. Place the receiver where it won't be far away from the mouse. Depending on where you are, you can place it on the monitor, on the tower, on the back of your laptop (if you are installing the mouse to your laptop) or on the desk.
  • The furthest a wireless mouse can get away from the receiver and still function is about 9 feet (2.7 meters), so keep that in mind.
Test your new mouse.
  • If you plugged into the mouse port, restart your computer.
  • If you plugged it into the USB port you should be able to use it immediately.
  • When the cursor moves when you move the mouse, you have connected the mouse properly. If the cursor doesn't move, try repositioning the receiver. If it still doesn't work, you may need to restart your computer (if you haven't already) or reconnect everything.
Adjust your mouse settings. Use the control panel that came with your wireless mouse, or download the necessary software from the manufacturer's website. Adjust the settings so that the mouse performs as you require.

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!
