    I have the targus PAWM10U wireless mouse. I also began experiencing the same problems as everyone else on these forums...All of a sudden, after about 12 months of use, my computer would no longer recognize my wireless mouse! All of the lights on the receiver still indicated that the mouse and the receiver were still communicating. This boggled my mind...I pressed the connect buttons on both the receiver and the mouse about a million times, nothing worked, but the lights on both units were still flashing...I was so fed up I threw both the receiver and the mouse against the wall!!!! After I had put the pieces back together I attempted plugging in the mouse again for another try...if your receiver for this mouse is like mine, it looks like two main components, one black part that attaches to the USB port and one silver part that has the blinking light and all the labeling on it...It turns out that if I have the silver part rotated to the top of my laptop the computer wont recognize the input...if I rotate this attachment down towards the desk THE COMPUTER RECOGNIZES IT!!! what this all comes down to is poor craftsmanship and design despite the fact that the damn thing can be thrown at the wall and still work (im pointing and clicking with mine right now). I hope this post helps all of you people distraught with this stupid things for sure ill never purchase another targus product in my life.

You mouse is defective. If using a separate mouse (not the built-in laptop mouse), try changing the batteries and cleaning around the mouse light or ball. Also, try a different mouse. Check to make sure you have not unintentionally changed the mouse control settings.

I bought a "mini wireless

First check to see if it is windows compatible and for which version. If windows vista is a comptabile version then you are good to go. For drivers, if windows does not reconize the hardware and cannot install it automatically then yes a driver is needed, normally in this kind of stuff like mouse and keyboard it usually plug and play and windows should easily reconize it unless it was built for mac.
For a wireless mouse, it should come with a usb thumb transmitter and the mouse itself. Under the mouse should be a button that you need to press in order for the computer to reconzie it. Turn on your computer with the usb thumb adapter (transmitter) plug in, then under the mouse or somewhere on the mouse, there should be a button, ( small button) press this button and then see if mouse work. If a manual was provided, please look it over. If mouse don't work, then you got a bad transmitter, and will need to return this to back to the store if it's still under return deadline

My mouse won't move. I put in new batteries and tried to set a reset button. I'm unsure which buttons to push so my mouse will be reconized

Are you sure the batteries are good usually wireless mouses have a button to push to show you that it works.

There isn't connection between the wireless mouse and laptop

First, reload the softwear than came with the mouse. Then, check the cable connections from the receiver to your laptop. If USB, then unplug and replug, if PS-2, unplug, replug, make sure the cord(s) are seated fully in the laptop. Then change the battery in the mouse, push the connect button on the mouse, and you should be back in business. I have Logitech wireless keyboard and laptop and have not had any problems after reinstalling and checking batteries and initiating the reconnect button. You will see a small window on your screen saying the mouse is connected on Channel 1 or 2. I hope this will help you.

Add-on Mouse

try to get a mouse built for laptops or get a mouse from the same brand as the laptop. and check to see if when you plug in the mouse on screen it says 'new hard ware found' if not it is not reconizeing it.
