mouse not detected
Posted on 2000-03-01
i got a used comp., it was running good till i got it home and hooked up my mouse and keyboard, now it starts mouse not detected,you can attach one now. I have a ms intellimouse ps2, it was working with a logitech. The plug on the back is a serial plug with a serial to ps2 adapter, it connects to the motherboard via a ribbon cable to a 10 pin male plug on motherb. serial port 1 in bios 3f8h,serial port 2 2f8h, under com ports in device manager com 1 port settings ,it comes up data bits bits persec etc. like a modem port,resources com 1 03f8-03ff int reques 04 change settings is greyed out,. Com 2 comes up the same under port settings bits per second, data bits etc. resources shows 02f8-02ff interupt request 03. Is it possible for me to buy a plug and play isa or pci card with a ps2 port on it that i could put in without having to set jumpers or change port settings ? Or is there an easy fix for this ? any help appreciated.
