Open Question

I have a Targus mini mouse model PAUM01 and I've been using it for about 4 or 5 months. Recently today when I plugged it into my usb port my computer says it does not recognize the device. I was told it was a driver issue but I don't know for sure?

SOURCE: Targus usb optical mouse not recognized by windows

Hi there!

The Targus WIreless Mouse with Power management is supported by Windows and does not require additional drivers. To confirm that Windows has loaded the drivers:

Click Start>Right-click My Computer>Select Manage

Select Device Manager

Expand the Human Interface Devices section.

You should see an entry for USB Human Interface Device. If you don't see an entry, right-click on the Human Interface Devices entry and select Scan for hardware changes.

If you don't see any results, look for any yellow question marks or exclamation marks underneath the Unknown Devices category. You may find the mouse listed there. If so, right-click on it and select "Update Driver". Select "Yes, this time only", then click Next, leave the default selection as is and click Next. If the update fails, try again except this time, after the first "Next", select the advanced option, "Install from a list or a specific location", then click Next.

Select "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install".

If a default selection appears on the screen that follows, click Next and it should install. If successful, I recommend you restart your machine for any changes to take effect. If the installation isn't successful, you may need to submit a ticket on Targus' support site.

I hope this helps you! If you have any questions, feel free to reply.

SOURCE: 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 retractable targus optical mouse keeps turning on and off when I plug it in. How do I take it apart? Model: AMU75US


The problem may be in the actual connectors. Try using a different USB port. If the mouse is out of warranty, you could snip the usb plug off and splice it into another USB connector.

My mouse is lock need help please


Good day there, glad to be of assistance to you today.
What kind of mouse is it? Is it a bluetooth mouse with batteries?
1.Is it a regular usb mouse with lights on it? If so, please check if you've got lights on the mouse,it means it's being detected by the notebook. 2.Please shut down your computer first, as soon as the the computer turns off, unplug and plug the mouse back in then power it back on. 3.If that doesn't work, try plugging it to a different usb port and restart the notebook. If it's the same issue, please check if the mouse will work on another notebook when plugged in.
I hope this has helped you resolve your concern. Have a wonderful day.

I need a wiring diagram for a Targus PAUMO1


Not worth it!
One wrong wire could burn out multiple USB ports on your computer (or any computer the device is plugged into).
It would be best to get a new or used mouse.

Power supply for Targus 4 hub usb 2


Most USB hubs do not need an external power supply, except when a connected USB device draws more power than the computer/laptop USB port can supply. In this case an external power supply will need to be connected to the USB hub.
Normally this would be a 5 volt power supply, but make sure the polarity on the connector matches the power connector on the hub, check the label on the hub, sometimes it states to power requirements of the hub as well as the polarity on the connector. Normally the pin on the hub's power connector is positive (ie. +5V)

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!
