mouse-recognition fail on p60-boards

By europanorama ·
i have huge troubles with the recognition of a serial mouse(or different ones) on 3 (2 are identical) pentium 60-boards. one board was working and i do not know what is wrong. the boards are outside the cases. i doubt that this fact could cause the problem, that the cables of the case are needed.

You can test your serial and paralel ports with a boot DOS diskette. Copy on this diskette the old Checkit for DOS and a mouse.exe (driver). Also you must make some loopback external connectors. Running tests with Checkit you will have diagnostics about this ports.
If you don't find loopback configuration tell me to send you.

Check your BIOS settings: default resources for serial ports are: COM1-3F8/4 and COM2-2F8/3 and also must be enabled.
Check if your mouse have a switch for 2 or 3 buttons.
Check for some conflicts in resources if you have additional cards (modem).
If your peripheral controller is an additional card (not on board) check jumpers settings.
Also I see motherboards with wrong inscriptions about pine1. Try to reverse the flat cable.
If you use the same flat cable for serial ports in all your tests (with all motherboards)is not a goog idea. Many cables works only with original motherboard (because the design on board is other. The manufacturer give compatibility only at external connectors not on board connectors).

i could solve the problem with 2 of 3 boards by using the original mouse-cable. there seem to be differences. with the third board i have a 504 mb-problem which could eventually solved by using ide-drivers. does not accept drives bigger than 504 mb.(540)

i will retest all 3 boards 1. outside the case with different cable and different connections concerning pin1. 2. i am not quite sure if the following was made with the p60 because i had a mouse problem on a p200mmx-board: i changed the com1-adressin bios and the mouse was recognized as com2. but i reset it. your answers are probably right. if i still have troubles i will use the original cable and at the end use the board in the case. could this problem be a p60-only fact?
