Did you install the drivers for the Targus mouse?
Try plugging a wired USB mouse into the laptop. If it works, then the issue is likely with the Targus mouse.

The mouse should use the generic microsoft mouse driver to function.

Is there a connect button on both the mouse and the receiver?

I read the complaints/reviews on CompUSA and they stated that the wires inside the receiver get cut thus disabling your mouse.
