Hi

I have bought myself a new mouse - a Genius PS/2 scroll mouse but an having difficulty installing it.

I have plugged it in to the socket makred mouse on the back of my PC (the one I have taken the old mouse out of!!) but, on start up, I get a windows error message saying no mouse was detected and that I have to shutdown before plugging in a PS/2 mouse.

Please can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Thanks to anyone who can help
Karen

Have you tried shutting down with the old mouse then swop plugs and restart and it should find the new mouse >>>
