Need info. about installing a PS/2 mouse.

I recently bought a Microsoft IntelliMouse 3.0. I would like to configure it as a PS/2 mouse. Right now all I have is a 9 pin serial port to connect it to. My BIOS supports PS/2 mice. Is it possible to use the PS/2 to serial adapter that came with the IntelliMouse and configure it as PS/2 through the serial port? If this is not possible what do I need to do. I am running Windows 95. The present mouse is on COMM 1, my modem is on COMM 3. COMM 2 & 4 are not in use.

Unless you have a PS/2 port on your system, you cannot use a PS/2 mouse. Either you have to buy a PS/2 connector / adapter card, or else you are stuck with using it as a Serial mouse.

j2,
Thanks for the info. I had a feeling that I needed to do more than just change the BIOS.
Thank You, narnia

If your bios supports PS/2 that probably means that there is a PS/2 header on the motherboard, but you need the connector for it, consult whomever you bought the system of.
