Mouse not functioning after upgrading to Windows 98
Posted on 2004-08-24
I have an old PC (actually very old) with Pentium 2 configuration, running Windows 95. The mouse connected is a serial mouse, connected to one of the COM ports, and the keyboard is the large connector keyboard, which I do not know the name of that connector type.
Anyway, I installed Windows98. Installation was rather elementary, without any problems. I do have an issue now with the mouse. The mouse has functioned in the beginning (first few hours) and now it does not function at all. I do not know how to approach this. The mouse *is* ok, since it worked a few hours ago, on the Win95 config. So what can be wrong here?
A serial port conflict? A wrong, perhaps missing definition/configuration? Driver? This is only a mouse for heaven's sake. Never ran into a problem like this, so I really do not know where to look...
