Logitech optical mouse installation problems

  Field Division 16:03 27 Sep 2006

Hi all,
I trying to install a logitech optical mouse..my O/S is win2000,I see it in device manager with yellow exclimation mark next to it.I uploaded the latest drivers for this controller,but when Windows boots up I dont even get a cursor.in the box which the mouse came in doesnt have any installation insruction's,maybe I aint pressing the connect buttons on controller and mouse at the correct time.might try a converter to usb.

What type of connection is on the end of the mouse lead? Is it PS2 (like a mini DIN plug) or is it USB?

Unintall the software and drivers. Remove the mouse. Reinstall the drivers. Switch off the PC. Connect the mouse. Restart PC. Windows will detect the new device and load the drivers for it...

Did the mouse come with a CD?

PS, my computer will work with both a wireless and a ps2 mouse plugged in at the same time, usefull if I boot up and the wireless drivers aren't installed

You can boot without the mouse, you just have to use the keyboard, eg. Ctrl and Esc = start menu...
