What does it mean: I switch ? If you have switch on mouse body, you
can flip it BEFORE you boot to Win95, so it'll detect new mouse
type (Mouse Systems). 2-button mode is Microsoft mouse.

I switch means:

A 3 botton mouse have a little swich to change a mouse to 2 botton mouse to a 3 botton mouse.

If I install or start windows95 with the swich in the position on 3 botton mouse, windows doesn't detect mouse, and if I change this swich when windows is sart, the mouse not work fine.

OK. So Win95 boots anyway, right ? Press Ctrl-Esc (to activate Start button), move to
Settingss, press right to activate next menu, move to Control Panel, press Enter to run
it, select System, press Enter to run it, move one right (to activate Device Manager tab),
press Tab two times, move down so your mouse will be selected, press Tab again, select
from lower menu Remove and press Enter. Thus you'll remove your mouse. If Win95 will
reboot, OK. Bring back Control Panel again and select Add new hardware, select No
when you'll be asked to search for hardware, from list select Mouse, press Enter. You'll
be presented by window where you can select what "family" of mouses, leave cursor on
(Standard types) and press Tab, select Standard serial mouse. Confirm OKs and reboot.

If you didn't succeeded, write me. BTW, do you have floppy with mouse drivers ? If you
have it, check it for Win95 drivers. Oh, almost forgot, remove ANY mouse driver from
AUTOEXEC.BAT/CONFIG.SYS if such thing exists.

I make it a lot of times but only work fine if the mouse was Logitec compatible and is was supported with a logitec driver, but there are a lot of mouse that not supported for this driver.

I think that I need a driver souch Logitec that support other mouse.

Anybody know where can I found it?
