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's...you 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

Yeah, I was kind of confused about this too. Apparently, on the base of the mouse, there is a red reset button. Press that, while simultaneously pressing the black reset button on the base of the charger. The laser light should becomes steady after a moment, indicating that the mouse is in sync with the laptop. If the laser is blinking, however, then the mouse is attempting to become synced. You may have to press the reset button multiple times. Hope this helps.

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.

I owned a Dell(inspiron 1420) touchpad is not functioning at all!


Try going into Control Panel, Mouse, Tapping and turn it all off.
Set the sensitivity to as low as you can.
The key combination should be Fn & F9, look for a button on the function row that has a finger pointing at a box :)

Try new batteries. If this does not work then try reinstalling the blue tooth drivers. If this does not work then replace the mouse. if you purchased it from Dell, it might be still under warranty.
