My pawn10u wireless mouse

    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 mouse...one things for sure ill never purchase another targus product in my life.

How do i connect my wireless i.t.works optical mouse model MWO03 to my eee laptop windows 7?


Follow these steps :
1.
Check to see if your laptop supports wireless technology (Bluetooth, 802.11 or other). If it doesn't, you will need a wireless receiver. If it does, verify that your laptop is compatible with your wireless mouse, which could use either Bluetooth technology or a radio signal.
2.
Unpack your mouse and open its battery compartment. The wireless mouse won't receive any power from the laptop, making batteries necessary.
3.
Add new batteries to the compartment. Make sure that the + battery end is inserted into the + niche in the compartment.
4.
Place the mouse where it is easy to use and least stressful on your fingers.
5.
Place your wireless receiver appropriately if your laptop doesn't support wireless technology. The receiver should be kept at least 8 inches away from the laptop or any other object that would cause any interference.
6.
Place the wireless receiver anywhere from 8 inches to 6 feet from the mouse.
7.
Insert the driver CD into your laptop and follow the instructions to install the software for running the mouse.
8.
Connect your receiver to the laptop by plugging in the mouse's USB connector to the USB port of the laptop. If you do not have a free USB port, simply use an external USB hub for more ports.

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.

Microsoft wireless notebook laser mouse 6000 not working


I have a miscrosoft wireless laser mouse 6000, and it also stopped working on my laptop. I changed the battery, still no workie. I tested the battery in another device, and it was good. I moved the mouse to another computer, and it did not work. The light on the usb connector was lit. [No changes at all to my laptop.]. It seemed like there was no power to the mouse, and I looked at the contacts inside the mouse. The contact just inside the mouse's opening for the battery appeared to be bent down (away from the contact on the battery tray). So, I pulled it up a little so it would connect when the battery drawer closed, and (after tweaking it a couple of times), it finally worked!

Both my pc and laptop wireless mouse quit working today


- usually this happens if you have changed the ports of the wireless receiver attached to you computer.

  • Unplug the receiver and replug the receiver
  • Ensure that you are using new set of batteries
  • If you have a connecting sequence, try performing it again
  • Check if the drivers are in place (Click Start > Run >Trype 'devmgmt.msc' without quotes. Hit enter)
  • If necessary install the driver from http://www.bioticaindia.com/pd7250lsr.html
  • If none of the above steps works, maybe you need a replacement from Micro Innovation for this device.
