Re: Targus PAWM001 Mouse - How to connect it to my laptop
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.

There are no drivers oddly, I looked everywhere. I have the exact same mouse and the exact same problem that you do. None of my computers would recognize so I just assume that perhaps the mouse is broken. Every Targus product I had has been cheaply made.
I checked the Targus website (http://www.targus.com/us/default.asp) for any other useful information. Use the "support" option at the website for a good troubleshooting guide for your particular mouse. Is this a new mouse? The mouse you have uses the native windows drivers and should be auto-recognized by XP. Have you kept your XP updates current? My concern is why XP could not install the software drivers needed(You would have gotten some type of an error message). Check the "details" link shown with the error message.That should point you in the right direction---rick
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.

The power switch is located on the bottom of your mouse.
a) press & release the link button on your receiver.
