Targus Wireless Laser Rechargeable Notebook Mouse problem

On January 6, 2008 I purchased a new Laptop and Targus AMW15US mouse. It worked fine for about 5 weeks.Then it quit working and the laptop noted that the item (receiver for mouse) plugged into the USB port was no longer recognized by the Vista software.. I attempted to get it working to no avail.

Please advise. Thank-you in advance.

    Thank-you for your assistance Jastababe. I believe you are probably correct in your assessment. However, I now have a new mouse that works very well and I have decided to stay with it. I'll chalk up my poor choice of an Argus to experience.

    I was also using my Targus AMW15US laser mouse for about 6 months then suddenly Windows doesn't recognize the USB receiver device (Unknown Device) when I plugged it in one day. Device Manager is saying the driver for the device is not found. I'm using Windows XP. Do I need to upgrade or reinstall any Windows USB or mouse driver?

The mouse worked initially....have you tried doing a system restore back to a few weeks ago to see if that solves the problem..
With Vista and so many of it's incompatibility issue' maybe have downloaded something and it corrupted your software for that mouse...

Here is the url with vista drivers. Redownload the drivers and install...see if this helps

Mouse works fine when cord is in it but when it comes to wireless the mouse does not last long. How long should I charge the mouse with the batteries in it plugged to the computer?

Rechargeable batteries do expire after a while either get new ones or get a battery tester to see how much life they have left. under normal circumstances a new set of batteries last me about two weeks before i have to recharge them and my computer stays on 24/7 including the mouse with at least 5 or more hours of use per day.

I have a targus laser mouse mod. amw15us it will only right click will not left click am i missing or needing a driver to solve this have 2 of them they use to work fine

Try this: on the base of the mouse, there's a red syncing button. Press both that and the black reset button on the base of the USB-connected charger. The laser light should become steady after a moment, indicating that the mouse is in sync with the laptop. (during this period the light should be blinking until it is synced) You may have to press the reset button multiple times. Hope this helps.
