Right click My Computer, right click Properties.
Select the Device Manager tab
Select the Mouse.
Click on Properties, and look for Resources.
If not here, click on the COM Port to which the mouse is attached.
Click Resources.
Clear the USE Automatic Settings checkbox.
Click on the IRQ.
Click Change Settings.
Try and find a free IRQ.
(You will get warnings about conflicts.)
Including the Brand and type of mouse would have made this answer shorter. No problem though.
Regards, Chris

Windows ME will not let you change the IRQ.
