The lights on the optical mouse is on,,,, when the system if turned off.


It must still be receiving power then if it is a wireless mouse usually they have a power button to conserve power but if it is a wired mouse then you just have to unplug it.

My Gigaware ubs mouse keeps looking up, how do I stop this?


You should try replacing the batteries in the unit, if it still freezes after that, try unplugging and replugging the wireless receiver. If it still freezes, try it on a separate PC. If it freezes still yet on a different computer, then you know the mouse has a hardware problem and should be replaced. If it doesn't freeze on the other PC then you will need to reinstall the software for the mouse on your main computer.

I have model CE 0560. New batteries are in. Pressed the dricer button which lights up. The redlight on the bottom of the mouse is on and flashing. The controls on the mouse do not respond.


You will need to follow the manufacturers instructions on setting up the mouse. Here is a copy of the instructions for download (Below is a viewable copy). Based on what you indicate, it is possible that the drivers are not loaded for the usb reciever or that one of the installation steps was not done correctly or completely. Please review the instructions and start from the first step.
Here are the instructions:

Targus Wireless RF Mouse USER’S GUIDE Making Your Mobile Life Easier.® Visit our Web site at: www.targus.com Features and specifications are subject to change without notice. © 2004 Targus Group International and Targus, Inc.. 400-0111-001B

System Requirements To use the RF mouse, your computer must meet the following hardware requirements and run one of the operating systems listed below. Hardware • PC with a Pentium® processor or equivalent • USB interface • Mouse • Receiver • 2 AAA batteries • Three inch USB extension cable • Carrying pouch Targus Wireless RF Mouse Operating System • Windows® 98/Me/2000/XP NOTE: The third button and the scrolling wheel only work with the operating systems listed above. If you use the RF mouse with a different operating system, it will lose its enhanced features and function as a standard, twobutton mouse.

Connecting the Mouse Receiver To connect the mouse receiver: 1 Plug the USB receiver into an available USB port on your computer. 2 Your computer’s operating system identifies the receiver and begins installing the default driver. Follow any on-screen procedures to complete the default driver installation. Using the RF Mouse Installing the Batteries 1 If the mouse is on, slide the on/off switch on the bottom of the mouse to the “off” position. 2 Remove the battery cover from the top of the mouse by pressing the battery cover hinge located on the bottom of the mouse and sliding it off. NOTE: The battery cover is also the top cover of the mouse.
Targus Wireless RF Mouse 3 Insert the supplied batteries, making sure that the positive (+) and negative (-) ends of each battery match the polarity indicators inside the battery housing. WARNINGS: When replacing the batteries, you may use alkaline or other heavy-duty NiMH batteries. Never use an alkaline with a NiMH battery in a device. Avoid mixing new and used batteries in a device. 4 Slide the battery cover back into position until it “clicks” firmly into place. 5 Turn on the mouse be sliding the on/off switch on the bottom of the mouse to the “on” position. The optical sensor, located on the bottom of the mouse, glows red. Establishing a Communications Link The RF mouse has 256 identification codes that allow the mouse and its receiver to operate without interference from other radio frequency devices. After your computer detects the USB receiver and the driver software is installed, you must establish a communications link between the mouse and its receiver BEFORE you can use the mouse. To establish this link, you need to set the identification code so that the mouse works properly. To do this, follow the instructions below: Make sure that your computer is turned on and has detected the USB receiver before you establish a communications link. 1 Press and release the link button on the receiver.

Targus Wireless RF Mouse Operating Hints For optimal performance and RF reception: • Place the receiver at least 8 inches (20 cm) away from all electrical devices, such as your monitor, speakers or external storage devices. If necessary, use a three-inch extension cable to keep the receiver away from the computer. Plug the receiver into the extension cable, and the extension cable to the computer. • Avoid using the RF mouse on a metal surface. Metals, such as iron, aluminum or copper, shield the radio frequency transmission and may slow down the mouse’s response time or cause the mouse to fail temporarily. • The RF mouse will enter a suspend mode at the same time your computer does. To activate the mouse, touch the sensor strips on the side of the mouse. • If your computer has a metal case that contains aluminum or magnesium, use the RF mouse to the side. The display panel may interfere with the radio frequency signal if you use the mouse directly in front of the computer. • Never use the RF mouse on a glass or mirrored surface as these surfaces will cause the mouse to fail temporarily. • To maximize battery life, use the RF mouse on a white, or light colored surface. Dark surfaces cause the mouse’s light emitter diode (LED) light to glow brighter, which causes the battery to discharge more rapidly.
Targus Wireless RF Mouse Sleep Mode • The mouse’s sleep mode feature activates after 8 minutes of non-operation. • To wake the mouse from sleep mode, touch the sensor strips on the side of the mouse. • When the battery charge is running low, the battery indicator light at the end of the mouse glows blue.

Targus Wireless RF Mouse Troubleshooting What do I do if the RF mouse does not work? • Make sure that the polarity of the batteries is correct. The positive (+) and negative (-) ends of each battery must match the positive (+) and negative (-) connections in the battery housing. • Check that the receiver’s USB connector is firmly attached to the USB port on your computer. • Verify that the device drivers are installed. • Make sure you have established a radio link between the mouse and its receiver. See “Establishing a Communications Link” in sections above

Pointer on laptop jumps to a different line while typing.


This may be caused by weak batteries, or interference by some nearby appliance (the worst case is another wireless mouse, of course: happened all the time in an office with six identical workstations, even to the two that were beyond a wall. But also wireless - not cellular - phones may interfere). Also the positions of receiver and mouse may play a part. Once sure the batteries work, try placing the receiver and mouse in different positions and see if it helps.
Otherwise, the receiver antenna could be defective.

Computer won't stay in power save mode after installing GE wireless optical mouse. It will go into power save or screensaver mode but won't stay there for very long. Is this a side affect of having a...


Yes, this is a result of the wireless mouse. If that mouse moves a hair, it could cause your computer to wake up. I recommend you placing the mouse in a more sturdy location between uses, or simply turn off the transmitter/receiver that controls the wireless keyboard/mouse. Sometimes a better mouse pad is all you need to reduce glare or to provide a surface with more friction to better prevent small bumps from moving the mouse round.

Wireless mouse/ keyboard will not work when 2nd computer is on


There must be interference on the signal from the mouse by the second PC

Make sure that there are no power cables close to the mouse or receiver, I have seen this cause problems many times.

You could also try changing the channel in the router settings in case this is causing the problem, it may be on the same channel as the mouse but only interferring when the second PC is turned on, ta, HPC
