PS2 / USB Mouse

  Electronic_Eric 16:54 11 Apr 2008

My mouse has just died on me today when its plugged into the PS2 port on the back of my computer. The mouse does work in the USB port though. Ive tried another mouse into the PS2 port and it works fine. Does anybody know the reason why this would happen??

Hope to hear from you soon,

Faulty usb > PS2 adapter ?

I found the problem. The adaptor between USB and the PS2 has got some play in it. Randomly i tried pushing the USB connector to both sides of the adaptor before i posted the thread and it didn't work. Ive wedged it in with some paper, proper job (said in a farmers voice). :D

I even cracked open the mouse to look for a dry joint/burnt out component. I also checked for continuity in the cable.
