Question about Targus PAWM001U Mouse
I just bought a targus AMW25 Stow-n-Go optical mouse for my Gateway Laptop which is running Windows Vista Home Edition 2006.
I installed the driver from the targus website and then plugged it in. As usual, Vista didn't recognize the mouse and said please insert the disk that came with it. Since I had already installed the software, I asked the computer to search the harddrive for the driver. I figured it would be in there since I installed the program that Targus asked me to.
It pulled up a Microsoft HID driver for the mouse and the little light turned on the USB transmiter and I thought GREAT I am in business.
Only thing is that the mouse only moves diagonally from the lower left to the upper right. I have to be honest... it's pissing me off.
The package says it's Windows Vista certified to work. Their data base said that the HID device driver was what I need to have it pull up. It did.
I looked at all the setting and it still won't do anything but a diaganal movement. I've put it on white paper flat surfaces, black, you name it.
What am I doing wrong here? Is the mouse damaged? Or is there a setting or tweak that I need to do?
Please let me know. I have all of my windows updates current.
Thank you in advance for your help!
