I've been running 2 PCs through a KVM switch. I now want to seperate them, but the one I want to move seems to have no power to the mouse through the PS2. I bought a USB adaptor, but it wont work through that either!! Other things work from the USB, just not the mouse or keyboard. I assume that on the KVM, they were getting power from the other PC. Any ideas how to make it work on its own please? BTW, the mouse & keyboard are working OK, tested on another PC.
Thanks for advise, but everything was plugged in when I booted up. USB/PS2 adaptor works well on other PC.When I reconnect the faulty one with PS2 to same mouse & keyboard mouse & keyboard through KVM switch, all works fine again.When I try to run it independently, no mouse!!
PS thats why I said to uninstall Mouse in Device Manager then run Add New Hardware wizard in Control Panel. If its USB wireless do not forget you have buttons to press on the dongle and the Mouse for it to work
Tried this to no avail.Doesn't find mouse, whether on usb adaptor or PS2.Its not wireless, no dongle.It's an old Time pc, about 4 yrs old, with MSI P4MAM-L (MS-6787) mobo. I turned it off to connect/disconnect PS2. Thanks for advice. Al
